Some of the random green drops on Isle of Thunder are transmog items that are worth a fair bit of gold on the AH. I did not realise this until I tried to DE one, got an error message, then went searching to see if that was a known bug.

They are the ZA models that were not reintroduced when it was revamped as a 5 man.

I vendored my green stuff ftom IoT purposefully - the whole idea of trying to sell off the stuff.. not hanks (though if I did want, I'd probably send it to a troll alt - though haven't had any leather stuff yet - okay, only did dailies 2 days over there)

If it's considered a snare, all priests should be able to remove it with Fade (assuming the proper glyph/talent, I forget which one does it.)


Thats the level 30 talent (http://www.wowhead.com/spell=108942) altho the other 2 talents are much more fun if you ask me... Dont see why shadow priests arnt able to use a mass dispel every 10 seconds when clearing trash :p

Depends on your priest availability as Mass Dispel has a target cap. Very annoying when I basically self target, and don't manage to dispel myself.

I recently leveled up a very old warlock alt and started running him through LFR. I never bothered to look at more than one or two out of game guides, I just went off of the in-game suggestion for rotation and that worked fairly well with the exception of spending the latter half of any given raid boss fight struggling with mana issues. This went on until a couple of days ago when I installed WeakAuras to play around with the warlock aura strings Theck posted a few weeks back and I noticed a spell icon on the screen I didn't recognize...

My first thought was to never mention this to anyone, but where's the fun in that?

I've been sending to DE, but... found a mace last night on the Island of Giants with a really cool glowy model, so I posted that one on the AH.

There are some warlock pet spells that are useful, for dispel 3 friendly targets, but it's not on the normal pet bar, and sits on the spellbook for pets, but it can't be dragged to your bars, pretty much you must macro it and then put the macro in the bar (or keybind if needed)

Now I'm checking all pets, fron warlock to hunter, to see if I have a useful ability not on display and use it as needed.

Nalak's tier pieces are determined by your class, not your spec, just like Sha. Is that right?

I'd come to that conclusion but the PUG raid leader said the opposite, so I am not sure.

I have only a sadly small sample of one drop to test this with - it was the appropriate spec, as were the two the raid leader had won before.

Class and spec, just like Sha. If you want Ret gear, you need to be Ret spec (or, in 5.3, have your loot selector set on Retribution).

Sha ignores spec, as does the random gear from loot bags. My prot warrior has gotten the DPS tier legs from Sha, and my disc priest got a +hit belt in a loot bag.

I do not know if Nalak follows the same loot rules, but I suspect so.

Not missing the memo just something I assumed about personal loot rolls that was incorrect. I believed that if a boss could drop 2/3 items then you had a higher chance of receiving an item compared to if the boss only dropped 1.

Ask Mr Robot - How to spend your Mogu Runes of Fate wrote:So let’s say there are 4 drops I could get from a boss, and all 4 are upgrades because my gear is scrub. I’d have a 15% chance to get an upgrade. Now, let’s say only 2 of the 4 items are upgrades, I’d have a 7.5% chance of getting an upgrade, and a 7.5% chance of getting an item I don’t need. I’d also have an 85% chance of smashing my face on the keyboard if my luck is bad ;)

Yeah, that's an annoying thing about them. It's what makes the tier-dropping world bosses one of the worst places to use a bonus roll (since you've got something like a 2% chance of getting a tier piece).

There's no way this 2% number can be correct. There are a lot of options that Sha (etc) drops, but the tier pieces come up way more often than 2 of 15 (or whatever) when the coin hits. About 50% in my experience that they roll tier.

(Plus, you have to take into account people that don't have access to 496/522 tier, only 483/502 ones...)

Hmm, maybe they drop tier more often. I was assuming it was te same as any boss, random item with equal chance. I've only ever received one tier piece personally, and plenty of PvP, but that anecdotal data counts for nothing.

Well any boss has a set percentage chance to drop any given item - the chance is not necessarily equal across loot drops, so the quote from AMR is, imo, misleading. The way I've understood the personal loot mechanic to work, is that you have - more or less - a set chance of getting loot, and the distribution of which loot item is dependant on the rarity of said loot item (if there are skewed chances for each of the eligable drops), i.e. if one is a 25% drop and the other is a 10% drop, you have a 5:2 chance of getting the 25% chance drop if you get a drop (afaik its a 2-roll system; 1 loot or bag, 2 what loot if loot)

Hey, did they increase the Protector token drop rate when they added Monk to it? I know the R/M/DK/whatever-the-fourth-is token always had a slightly increased drop.

Yeah, there is a 1/11 chance for each class on a token for that token to be the one to drop - its directly relative to the number of classes on it.
