Patch 4.2 Models - Overfiend
Let's continue poking at Patch 4.2 models with what seems to be a new trash mob, the overfiend! It comes in multiple recolors but the only one you will see for the moment is probably the fire version.









Raegwyn - 1 Death Knight vs. 2 Cataclysm Heroic Bosses
Raegwyn was looking for a new way to spend time and decided it would be fun to try to solo an heroic boss, it probably wasn't hard enough because he eventually decided to solo two of them at the same time.



The MMO Report
Let's face it, the first news of the week would be sad without the MMO Report.



Comics - Roles
Nerfnow has an interesting point of view on tanks and healers ...

    Skeletons for models is difficult to code more so than make. You have to get the movements right, so that when you/it is walked, your leg doesnt randomly jump to your skull. Overall, I would rate your question a 4, because in the gaming world, its more of a time restraint to get it right. But this is my oppinion, and other are entitled to their own.

    This is the most unimpressive video I've seen from him. These two bosses are nothing more than chumps. They don't hit hard unless you do something stupid.
    Hell most boss fights work better if the 2 of the DPS die, that way the healer can take care of himself the tank and the 1 dps who knows how to not die to shit on the ground.

    Both fight mechanics are based entirely around situational awareness - if you run out of the ground slam and shatter, you will take very little damage as a tank on Ozruk. As for slabhide, his melee damage isn't very impressive, it's the fire on the ground and the falling rocks that do damage. If you move out of the way of their prime abilities, you hardly take any damage whatsoever.

    I'm not saying it wasn't neat, but it's not exactly the most complicated thing in the world. I've tanked these several times where everybody except for me and a dps lived and we managed to get the fight finished. Pally and DK tanks have enough self healing that unless there is a "one shot" ability like ground slam (removed in 4.1 you can stand in it and live, how retarded) or a unstoppable bleed, the boss will just slowly die unless there is a hard enrage timer.

    Come on Blizzard, give us a Volcano Boss/mob or at least Volcano Shaman T12!

    Why would you be impressed if he solos a boss that hits really hard? Well then the game would be broken. The whole idea behind soloing bosses are to pick such where you with CLEVER playing and quick thinking can avoid enough damage to survive. Every of these solo videos have a spot on the first page and apparently more than you think "cares".

    I wouldn't manage to solo these on my DK, it would require too much time and possibly reactions.

    They gives us that. People will complain about the head looking to much like Deathwing or the same skeleton as Ozruk or something

    Should also post on the front page about the Adobe update too that has been brought forward in the Customer Service section of the US Battle Net community forums. Apparently there was a security flaw in the prior versions to the current one. Not exactly sure what the ins and outs of it are but it looks to be important. O.o

    Actually he's getting nerfed. No more Blood Shield while in Frost/Unholy presence. This means he either gets 15% health death strikes, or much lower death strikes but with blood shield.

    DK self healing is perfectly fine...

    Yes, the videos are cool and end up on the first page, but this one is just not something I'm really excited about. The other solo's are unique b/c they are bosses that were either 1) super hard to deal with at lower level b/c of stupid instagib abilities and whatnot or 2) impressive lore bosses with long fight mechanics (lk10). The fun is seeing people defeat some of the older mechanics by outgearing the situation or using cooldowns in an impressive manner. Watching a rogue solo twin emperors, this dk's video of lk10, etc, those are impressive. But kiting a boss up a hallway who's only ability to damage you involves you being a moron and standing in his killshot zone, only to run into a boss who can't really kill you unless you stand in the fire.... it's just not that impressive. I've seen these bosses go down to a single tank before in heroics, it's cool that he kited them together, but they aren't bosses that are gear checks for tanks, they are situational awareness fights for the DPS and healers, the tank really doesn't have to do all that much. It's like watching a pally tank solo the 1st boss in the newest Blackrock heroic, it's cool but it's not exactly groundbreaking.

    Also, lol at the comic
    Well the last part of reagwyn movies indicates he is working on a LK solo kill. That would be pretty impressive to say atleast!
    ofc some other DK will do it on heroic than

    thats how all tanks must be!
    like death knights - this is a true skill.
    not like other silly druids, warriors and paladins - parodies of normal tanks! shame, Blizz. not all your tanks have enough survivability. especially in PvP...

    Even though i dont want to downrank his archivements, this is fucking ridiculous...
    They keep nerfing Druids to the Ground, and keep buffing DKs + Mages.
    Blizzard lost it /sadface

    That is a tooltip fix by the way. They're not increasing it by 5%. They're just correcting the tooltip.

    If I knew how to put blizzard quotes in here I would but here is a link to the blizzard post confirming:
