Ungoro is fine without going in the caves. I never went in them when I was mining there.

everytime i am there most of the nodes are in the tunnels, so i switched

There's an achievement that awards a title for finding a pristine of every artifact in Panderia. It took me over 650 solves to finish that achievement and from what my friends have experienced and what I've read.. mine was on the low end.

My SSD crashed, bought a new one, figured I might as well try win8 if I have to reinstall everything again.
Apparently win8 failed with streaming youtube etc all the time (for me, not for everyone), figured Id wait a bit before I would have to bother troubleshooting it.
Can only download 80GB/month from here, so went to my brother with only the SSD to download all the games and some extra shows while I was there.
Filled all 250GB.
When I got home the SSD didnt "like" all the new files, so it decided to delete everything and restore it to right after win8 was installed, and now It wont boot up again...
Cant be bothered with win8 anymore, ill just go back to win7, but now the whole weekend is gone and my SSD is still empty, no games or anything :S

Blizzard publically ammitting they buff/nerf classes based on how many people play them is quite sad.
From MMO-Champions twitter collection
Q: So you're more concerned with representation than balance?
A: There is often a relationship. Balance is not the only thing that drives population, but it contributes.

He said there's a relationship between class distribution and game balance. Which means they do nerf/buff classes when they are overplayed / less played. Like they put legendary daggers in DS to get more people to play rogue. Warlocks are the least played class, and they are the best dps class in game, makes sense.

Very sad.

Or maybe the point is they look at numbers as a warning of balance issues? Representation helps them discern wtf is going on and act accordingly.

What would have them rather do? Delete the rogues and warlocks altogheter? Further, warlocks are on the nerf chopping block this time around... So much for that theory.

Addentum: GC also stated that balance influences representation, not the other way around. I know you're upset about the shadow priest, but grasping at strawmans isn't helping.

Took my rogue alt through the full LFR for the first time. Died SO many times, I had yellow armor on the UI; haven't seen that in such a long while, I thought the graphic was from another game. Came second from bottom in the dps list for Terrace. Looted 16 bosses and Sha and used four coins all in one day. Got zero drops. I hate my rogue.

No, you (incorrectly) inferred that he said that. What he actually said there is that there is a relationship with low representation and balance issues. Which is almost certainly true. Underpowered classes often lead to under-representation, so it's one of the warning signs.

What's sad is how far you seem to be willing to stretch things to trash Blizzard lately. It's a little disturbing.

All I got from that was that people don't play underpowered classes. Thus the class gets buffed because it sucks, not because nobody plays it.
