As of this moment, there aren't any plans to make those items available for Justice Points.

That doesn't necessarily mean that those items are still out of reach, though. We re-tuned the tier 11 raid instances in the hopes that players who haven't seen that content might be willing to give them a shot. If you don't have a group of friends or guild mates that are interested in trying out those raids, the Raid Browser is an under-used tool that can be convenient for getting a raid group started, or for filling the gaps in your raid composition.

(For those who are unaware, the Raid Browser is available as a menu button at the bottom of your interface titled 'Raid') (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Why does Blizzcon exist? Can't Blizzard just attend E3?
E3 is an expo primarily geared toward employees and press in the gaming industry. BlizzCon is a convention we host ourselves for our Blizzard gaming communities. In order to make sure it's packed full of cool stuff, we need to make sure it roughly pays for itself.

The size, scope, and purpose of BlizzCon is so different from E3 that there's no meaningful way to compare the two. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Hiring Game Masters
Hiring Game Masters is a lengthy and expensive process, and one that we are constantly going through. Speaking as a former Game Master myself, it's not an easy job. There's a lot of demands that need to be made, both from the employer and the players that you interact with. Much training is required, and even then, some tasks are limited to more experienced Game Masters.

This is a topic that comes up frequently, and it seems to stem from the general lack of knowledge about how we do the things that we do in Customer Support. Some of that will have to remain a well-protected secret - we provide the best customer support that we can, and we feel that's something extremely valuable that no other company offers at the same level. We know it's important to you guys, and we agree.

However, we're also working on ways to bring to light our policies, procedures, and our day to day lives here so that our players can better understand what's necessary to get these difficult tasks done in the best and most efficient way possible. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

    Aw, I liked heirlooms being white... I don't know why, I just preferred it. I guess because I don't like heirlooms, but they're practically a necessary evil.

    At least y-day after the patch the tab targeting was still broken. I stood before a 4 mob group and tried to target the furthest one, from a reasonable close range btw (we were in combat), and it just kept cycling between 3 of the mobs... drives me crazy.. missed an interrupt, ofc wasnt a problem but if it was a raid bossfight.. sigh.

    Well lets see, so far my issues have been

    - Constant DC´s
    -10 min loading screens
    - FPS drop
    - BG´s not working

    Another pile of shit patch. What do they have, nutless monkeys doing their coding and deployment? Fucking pathetic.

    Did they stealth buff trash in FL? Unbound Pyrelord packs can't be kited anymore because they run much faster?

    They really should add T11 Head and Shoulders to Justice / Valor vendors. Its not off anyone if they would do so. Those pieces could even cost Valor instead of Justice if they still want to keep them more difficult to obtain than rest of the tier. The current tier (T12) would still drop only from bossess until a new tier is released.

    Yes, stealth buff for fireland trash. End of solo farming.

    I suspect your mods/cache/internet connection. In fact I have never had more than a handful of disconnects in my history of WOW (except after wotlk release there was some serious issues). I think most DC is because of bad ISPs or running on wireless. At least whenever we raid and someone says "i have some issues with the server d/c ing me" they are almost always running on Wifi laptop.

    Haven't noticed anything for the tab target fix. Just got out of ZA run and it was still all crazy all over the place targeting.
    Great... so tab is still useless...

    Yey, no more DPSing a dead mob :P and can it be? did they really fix the DC issue?Ever since 4.0, if i changed area while wow was minimized(ex: SW > Darkshire FP)it ALWAYS resulted in a disconnect from the server.. oh /pray gotta test this.

    GM work is the worst job. I never thought to this job. I am sure that GM job is really boring so i agree with Blizzard post about GM hiring.

    Resolved an issue that was causing the client to crash under certain conditions when minimizing the game client. Still getting disconnect when I for example use hearthstone and tab out the game...

    The raid-browser is underused because it sucks. Maybe, just maybe it wouldn't be too bad if you were actually allowed to randomly group up with people from other servers like with the LFD. But for now it just blows because people don't bother using it. The tool needs a complete revamp. Just let people group up with the dungeons using a similar idea like with the LFD but with the raid-browser, give them some "extra" reward for willingly suffer through the extra pain received. It don't get more hardcore than that.

    The LFD tool and LFR tool need to be combined into the same tool. Simply give them different tabs. The reason the LFR tool is so underused is cause it's so inconvenient to get to. If it's only a single click away a lot more people will use it.

    Maybe no one stated it, but the Scorpion packs in Firelands got heavy speed increase, impossible for firemage to solo kite atm it seems.No clue if Death Knights still can thou.
