Last night after our raid, we took our team + a couple of guildies (13 in total I think) down to kill the boss for the legendary quest, A Change in Command, to allow someone to finish the quest on an alt. While we knew it wasn't a difficult fight, the guy has a lot of health (117M-ish) and so more people makes it go faster. We pulled before one of the members of the raid got there thinking that he had time to arrive. To our suprise, after 10 seconds, the boss was at 50% health and we had to completely stop DPS'ing him.

Apparently, they nerfed his health by 90%, as he now has 11M-ish health. Those that needed the kill got credit and all ended well, but it was quite a suprise to all of us and none of us remembered seeing this change documented anywhere. Oh well, next alt that needs it - we'll know, lol.

It works if you have more tabs than currently fit on the window. Just hover your mouse over the tab rob, and scroll up and down through the list.

Coins give you an extra roll for loot.

[OK, I did know this, but after an under-geared alt heroically tanked through all of ToT LFR with no coins and got only one piece of gear, I decided for my own sanity I have to farm those 50 lesser coins first in future.]

Next you can lose your sanity to the endless bags of gold.

The best way to get coins is join a large farming group in barrens. A decent raid will get you a little over 300 coins an hour. This is the last week to do this particular method, so hopefully you can find a group that's taking advantage while they can.

Are you sure about this? The Korkron mobs will remain in Northern Barrens, to drop the bag, pet and Brawler Boss thingy. I see no reason why they would stop dropping Lesser Charms.

Remember that it's all lvl 90+ mobs that drop coins, it's not limited to mobs in the barrens. Mobs in Vale of eternal blossom and dailies drop them too :)

I thought they were going away with the questline changes in 5.4, but all the chatter may have just been about the quests themselves. If that's the case, then good; I farmed a thousand charms last week, but I might as well get another thousand to carry through SoO ...

The nice thing about farming the dudes in the barrens is there's a strip of four camps along a ridge in lumberyard that make for absurdly quick spawn/killcamps.

50 coins per week; thats 20 weeks per 1k coins (provided you spend all of them weekly), so another 1k coins equals 40 weeks total (while needing the rolls) - do you really expect to need extra rolls 30 weeks in to SoO? (sanity checking here)

Just doing normal play stuff the lowest I've ever come on coins count has been roughly 1300 coins.

Um... is it just me, or has the maintankadin site gone through a bit of a redesign?

I tried to eliminate most stuff that was unnecessary. The top banner, several announcements, redundant forums, and moved the stuff that should be the focus of the site to the top. Except for the asylum. It's still by far the most used section of the site, so I pulled it to the top.

Heh, it took me a bit to realize the banner was missing, I kept trying to scroll up, and thought my browser was rendering the site wrong or something, then I noticed the other small changes.

I wanted to access "Advanced Theorycraft and Calculations" all the time and landed in "Recruitment" and could not figure out why for about half a minute... xD

well that's what happens when you navigate blindly and your mouse just clicks without reading where you got, because you are just soooo used to it being "there" :P
