The Warbringers are in static locations in every zone and the scouts float around near them.

From what we noticed there is nothing really set in their spawns except for the fact that at least one HAS to be up at any given time. The scouts seem like they have a shorter spawn time but they also wander all over the place.

Hehe, we bought 4 of the $5 lottery scratch offs, just on a whim. My roommate took the 2 odd numbered cards, so he left me the 2 even numbered cards. He didn't win anything. I got a $20 winner, and then a $10 winner.

"So, the odd cards didn't win. Congratulations."

"Yup, you could even say that I..." /sunglasses "Broke even."

"....don't ever do that again."

Nah, they spawn just regular Pandaria rares (30 min to 2 hour timer). There will be 1-2 scouts spawning near a warbringer as long as it's alive. Killing the warbringer will make the scouts nearby despawn.

There are 5 Warbringers total (one in each coastal zone) in fixed locations (hard to miss since there's always a huge skyscreamer nearby). They have a 5% chance to drop the mount they're riding, and always drop 4-6 insignas (BoA, gives 1000 reputation to one of the 5.0 factions) and usually some bags of crafting materials.

Scouts only drop 1 insigna and ~15% chance at a small bag with crafting materials.

Unless they've changed something in the past week, that's not true about the scouts despawning after a Warbringer is killed. I've killed plenty of Warbringers then went and hunted the Scouts to find them further down on their path.

and scouts can drop 1-2 insignias

just a side note about them for those that do not know, they do get the 100% rep boost
so if you have a bs, or a tailor/lw alt that you want to get patterns on it takes just 5 insignias to get from never seen the faction to honored

and because of this, my mage now has helm, chest, gloves, and boots all waiting for him to hit 90 (he is almost 88 right now) and my dk who is 85 has all of the klaaxi patterns, i just need to level her to get some f**king spirits of harmony, or buy out the ghost iron market as everything requires those stupid bop spirits or goes green at 585

They also get the 10% rep boost from Guild Level. So one insignia grants 2200 reputation. And if you are a human, you get even more.

Actually, as Fenrir noted, the scouts don't despawn. I've hunted plenty of them with no Warbringer in sight.

The warbringers do seem to spawn one right after the other, then once all 5 are dead, it will take 30 min or so before they show up again. However, if one of the 5 was killed a while before the others, the cycle can get a bit messed up.

Also, the scouts have really long pats. I killed one in Towlong that had patted all the way up to the ShadowPan camp, and had just turned around there.

Not WoW related, but a minor success nonetheless: I can now play the first movement of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata (14th Sonata) on the piano without too much difficulty. Getting better. Switching between base and treble cleft on the same line is confusing :/

Well it took going to four drugstores and two department stores... but I finally found a place that still had them in stock.

Rosetta Stone is kind of lousy, there are much better free resources out there that I would be more than happy to share if you like.

Yes, please. I was waffling on RS for a couple of years, but I've gotten nothing but positive reviews from people I talked to (including one today, who is learning German).

Tanked Oondasta - that was an interesting experience.

The key thing seemed to be the frill blast - 800k fire damage. Icy veins says avoid it, but that does not sound very plausible (a comment says the head will follow you if you try) - or is it right? A wowhead comment said have a CD available for each breath, which sounds more likely.

But I was struggling - I don't think holy avenger will count, as shotr is only against physical damage. Unglyphed DivProt should be ok, ditto AD and GoAK. I doubt bubble would work - you can't taunt so wouldn't he just turn to the next highest on the aggro table?

What external CDs could you call on? I know disc priests have pain suppression. What others are there?

Double-stamina trinkets to get more than 800k life? :)

Unglyphed DP with US will be up for every other Frill Blast. Don't try to turn the boss, the cast time is really short and you'll probably end up killing 50 people.

I will PM you later today with the good stuff. :) RS can teach you some good stuff and some good stuff is better than nothing at all (procrastination is the enemy of every language learner!) but if fluency is your goal it will not get you anywhere near to achieving that as it is very basic.

I finally got to the bottom of my 300 ms+ latency in WoW, my crappy Virgin Superhub. Set up a decent router and now can actually play without lag.Might actually start doing LFR as a tank now.

The boss definately can turn during the cast, too. On the kill I got last week, which was terrible, the boss spun around 180 degrees halfway through every single cast, oneshotting most of the two raids that were fighting him.
