    Err, you got 2 legendary weapons to yourself in 4.3? You've been a consistent top performer since TBC? You also had 2 legendary weapons in TBC. Grow up. You must be playing Rogue wrong.

    Either way, MoP won't be released until Sept at the very earliest. Still means 4-5 months of changes to come.

    Zen Flight, interested to see how this Nimbus Cloud will work, I have visions of a temporary flight form glitching out bosses and causing general unintended havoc. I assume they're using the term playfully or it will be restricted to outdoors, not in BG's/arenas.
