    Well now that im 80 its time to get geared for heroics/Naxx. Ive compiled a list from a helpful link in the warrior thread and suprisingly its not going to be too hard. Major point of contention is getting revered with the Wyrmrest Accord which shouldnt be too harsh if I am championing them.

    Do you know how to remove/install a hard drive? If so, put the hard drive from your old computer in your new one and transfer that way, or buy a USB external enclosure, put your old hard drive in that, and do the same.

    Not familiar with rogue specs, but are there points spent in expertise talents that could be reallocated elsewhere to tkae ardvantage of the stat's abundance on gear?

    Going strictly by memory, not really. 10 expertise (not rating, full on Expertise) for 2 talent points is also an INCREDIBLE investment in terms of expenditure vs gains. The problem is that rogues pick it up primarily to reduce the mobs chance to dodge (players can't dodge attacks from behind, mobs can), and that has a hard cap around 6.25/6.5%. Expertise beyond that is literally worthless 99% of the time. There aren't a whole lot of dps granting talents lower in the combat tree that we're not already picking up that you could shuffle the points into anyway, and none I can think of that give the same kind of returns as the expertise talent does.

    In my case, I've been picking up several rare upgrades to pre-TBC raid epics that are questionable "upgrades" due to putting me well over the expertise cap. I hope to alleviate this somewhat by replacing one "omg expertise rare" (gloves) with the no expertise T7 gloves from the badge vendor tonight, and then swapping my "omg no expertise" T6 chest for some rare chest I picked up that has boatloads of Expertise on it.

    As a rogue, I can have in my bags 3 or 4 "upgrades", but all of them have exptertise in vast quantities, so I'd suffer from harsh diminishing returns where wearing more than one is less effective than just wearing one and keeping old gear in its place.

    That said, it's well documented that the RNG and I have a very rocky relationship. Sometimes it's all *bam* why isn't my dinner made yet? Here, have some more mainhand warglaives to cry about! And then later it's all "baby, I don't mean to make you cry, here have a Baron's Mount".

    What I'm getting at is that the RNG abuses me and I need an adult.


    Is it not also true that past the dodge cap, Expertise still reduces parries, and thus is just as good as hit rating percentage point for percentage point? I don't know if that applies to rogues, but it certainly does for warrior tanks...until you reach the expertise dodge cap, its twice as good as hit, once you reach that, its equal to hit.

    HAPPY: I got to do deamines last night with some friends who came back after a three year hiatus. It was just 4 of us at lvls 16 and 17. It was a blast to see vanilla WoW again. We got all the way to the boat but could not beat van cleef.

    Hope: We get naxx tonight

    Hate: How much fun DK was.

    Oh and question the quest for dk where you kill crusaders for crusader skulls. Does anyone realize how fast you could make gold by killing citizens than put them in the cauldron? You one shot them and five of those potions go for 2 gold plus. It is 20 per turn in.... Im hoping it just continues because my dk is not leaving there after making 50 gold in 30 minutes.

    You can make a lot more than that by just finishing the quests and goin to Outland and starting to level.

    It does reduce parries. However, a more effective way to reduce parries is to not stand in front of the mob, since they can't parry from behind.

    Well, fury warriors do get AP from how much armor they have now

    So do Death Knights, and both talents are early enough in there respective trees to allow just about any build to get them. I don't know the math, but I'm sure with the talent + Toughness should make plate with a good amount of STR be as good as a equal item level mail/leather piece with pure AP.

    shadow should be pretty cheap as you get boatloads of it from farmin' saronite (alternatively: level up mining on an alt or something)

    to farm fire these guys are really good and have the added bonus of doing very little damage

    Happy!Gear: Just finished my 5th Heroic of the day, the ultimate badge being #202. Badge #200 was the real milestone, as that's the one that buys my t7 chest. I've now gotten everything from badges except the belt, which is a tiny upgrade over the [Trollwoven Girdle] I have right now (an upgrade only in that some budget is converted into a socket, allowing me to reallocate it into more beneficial stats than the Trollwoven).

    This also dinged me on my fourth Exalted. Apparently you can gain rep with the Alliance Vanguard by not wearing any other factions' tabard into dungeons?, so I'm gonna get on them next, I guess. :P

At the end when Tirion goes down I was like oh shit we are screwed and then in comes Mograin to save the day. just freaking awesome all around. That was truly one of the best quest lines I have ever done in this game. So I guess that is a happy.
