Re: WoWzers!

I don't know how most of you found changing items as you level but I'm still rocking all of my T10 and quite a few of my 80 items. Last night I finally replaced my 277 Nibelunging and my Rings. I've just found that either the items have the wrong stats for me (Mastery is rubbish for Boomkins) or it...

Re: WoWzers!

DK's have always had more Cooldowns available as a way to counter their reduced passive Damage Reduction. That being said, the new DK tanking abilities look very good.

Re: WoWzers!

I think the Worgen look pretty cool, to be quite honest. The racials are pretty good, IMO. 1% bonus damage is a great passive for PvE just for being a certain race (unless the racial has changed since I last checked). I also like the Tauren and Draenei aesthetics a lot, as well, though. YMMV I supp...

How's your dps doing on the fight? It may actually be a lack of dps thats killing you rather than a lack of healing. If you're getting 5 (or less) marks, then yes its a healing issue. Otherwise dps needs to be better. Make sure people (near the end) are using whatever personal safety cooldowns they...
