    I wish WoWace updater was still around. That thing was the best.

    They shut it down because it was too expensive to operate. And the guy didn't want to start charging people for the service.

    Doesn't "the guy" now work for Curse?

    He does.

    And Re: Curse charging for premium. I think premium just installs updates without user intervention, whereas normal you have to click a few buttons. There's other perks, too, of course, but that's the only bit that's related to the updater.

    Also, Shirik has been rewriting the wowinterface updater, but I'm convinced it's vaporware at this point. He says it's really modular though, and that curse support could be written in by a third party.

    God, once you hit Champion the tournament becomes the best source of gold ever. 6 dailies (technically 8 but there's two pairs of them with the same objectives so you really only need to do 6 things), 5 of them in icecrown, half an hour... 150g. Plus saronite and titanium from flying around Icecrown.

    Wait, seriously? Goddammit... that means I might actually give a shit and do the tournament... Fuck!

    Sounds good, I was pretty good when I played but I do not quite have the time I use to. Doing BWL/Ony/MC runs 7 days a week started to become a job. My friend talked me back into this game and said it is no longer anything like that anymore and the game is actually more casual friendly so I hope he is right.

    he's right, though if you don't raid you will EVENTUALLY hit a wall.
    though if you haven't played since level 60, you'll take months to get through all the new stuff...

    hell, you'd be preoccupied just levelling one toon to 80 of each class to see whats changed.

    How much gold do you get for those Champion's Purses you can choose as a reward?

    Edit - Nevermind, found it on WoWhead. 10g per purse, and it's counted as looted so it goes toward the related achievement for how much gold you loot. Awesome.

    I haven't been. Most of my alliance reps are at honored, with Ironforge on the cusp of revered and Stormwind having 7k to go to exalted. I'm a pre-2.0-rep-gain-buff character who never saw it worth it at the time, once being max level, to up rep via runecloth. And then the price went up for the next ten levels so fuck that, and then the price went up again.

    Rep with the main factions isn't worth much at max level still, says I.

    The funny thing is this character was revered with the Argent Dawn at level 55. Free Naxx attunement soon followed.

    ~25g from 4 champion dailies + 12.50g from 4 valiant dailies from another faction = 150 gold a day.

    Two of the valiant dailies have the same objectives as two of the champion dailies.

    If the last names match, then you can transfer characters between accounts. If not you may be able to call them and talk about it, but really that is a pain in the ass.

    You can move characters between accounts if the name on the accounts are the same. I've never tried it with same last name, different first name. I would imagine Blizzard would be easy going about that, though.

    Well on the plus side, that means I can get 1k rep per day for whatever faction I'm doing until I finish and move onto the next one. Which is great, because I had no intention of ever taking the Champion's Writ.

    I was pretty happy to see that I get ebon blade rep for doing the champion dailies. I haven't maxed out that reputation yet, which seems like a bad thing for a DK to be doing considering they're his homeboys and all that.

    Especially nice because I despise the ebon blade dailies.

    So the formula that Ghostcrawler posted about how armor penetration works in 3.1 is totally bullshit. I'm ticked that they are putting hard caps on things like armor pen. Why wouldn't they just put a "hard cap" on it through attainable gear? That way if someone went through all the trouble of getting all the gear they needed to reduce a mob's armor to 0, they could do it!

    As it is now, it's stupid.

    As it is now, it's still a DPS gain if you have enough of it. They just didn't want you to be able to reach 100% armor ignore, apparently.

    Developers love caps. It means fights are a lot easier to tune, because they don't have to police whether or not the gear players collect trivializes their meticulously designed encounters.

    Just slap a cap into place and they don't have to ever worry about the gear. Which, considering the disconnect between itemization and game balance, is probably a good thing.

    Not really. For warriors for example, crit is not a great throughput stat past a certain point, and at a certain (attainable with GT procs, possibly without if you really stretched) point ArP becomes a higher dps gain point for point than STR. I think they wanted people to have a make an informed decision, not just ArP ArP ArP.

    I always stab him with 4 right as I hop on. Then I use 1 a few times to get my grip up and start alternating between 1,3 and waiting to dodge/stab(2,4) when he tries to claw. For the last phase I just spam 3 every time it's up. Sometimes I get lucky and he drops on the first or second stab.

    It's actually not twitchy at all :P

    Here's some tips:

    1. I know Horde has access to it, I can only assume Alliance does as well, but you can buy a slow fall drink after you do a questline involving relics in your town (turned out not to matter for me, first character I did them with was a pally, second one I'm doing it with is a mage).

    2. Put up some kind of damage shield (if you have one) as the drake is coming down to pick you up. Health doesn't matter since the damage done is a percentage of your maximum.

    3. use 4 (heavy thrust) as often as it comes up, spam 1 (grip) every gcd until you max out, and continue using it to keep yourself above 50 (my personal goal). Spam 3 (thrust) after you hit 99 the first time on grip. Use 2 (dodge) whenever it tries to attack you and 2's not on cooldown from using 4.

    4. When he hits 30% and goes into the second phase, spam 1 until you get 10 stacks, then hit 3. If you miss it, keep spamming 1 until 3 comes off cooldown.


    I still do this quest on my pally (even though she's exalted) primarily because it's one of the few dailies that's more than 13g.

    EDIT: I see I waited too long to post this, and missed all the advice given already :P

    Mostly joking, really. I'm not sure how the changes to ArP affect things right now, since I haven't been playing a lot lately.

    I just work with the "too much of one thing is baaaaad" theory. To stack that much ArP, I would imagine your other stats would take a hit. Without the ArP cap, I'm not sure if it would be really feasible to try to reach 100% or anything crazy, but some other math-minded people might prove me wrong.
