    the model/frame is old, the skin is new. So you're both wrong.

    5 extra energy tagged onto Soul of the Forest still isn't going to make it appetizing for ferals. The bonus just simply needs to be changed to be in line with the other 2 options, especially in PvP.

    You don't seem to know what a model is, if it equals frame to you.

    They look pretty damn new to me. None of the previously introduced Sha models have that head ornamentation, and the Mantids have different suits of armor on.

    Are we in need of a redefinition of what a "new model" is? You slap some armor on an old night elf saber cat? Yep, that's a new model.

    The skin is not equal to the model. The skin is the two dimensional... lets say texture.... that would wrap around an otherwise colorless model. Something is only a "reskin" of something else if the model's previous texture can be interchanged with the new reskin without any graphical snafus.

    The proper term you were looking for is that the skeleton is reused. The set of animations used by the creatures is indeed shared.

    However, Blizzard has been doing this since well before Mists of Pandaria or Cataclysm. They did it in Wrath of the Lich King, and they did it in Burning Crusade. So it's nothing to bitch about.

    Is resil going to be changed again in this upcoming build? Or nerf to the heals at least?

    I think that in two-three weeks we should see MoP pre-load for 5.0 on the launcher. 5.0.4 is likely lauching September 11th the latest as I believe they've said it will be out for two weeks before the expansion. That should give people with slower connections or bandwidth cap a grace period to download their digital purchase prior to launch of pre-expansion patch and most of the expansion data.

    They need fix the texture of the news parts of Sha Boss, and maybe change the faces, not only horns.

    No. They are completely removing the master riding skill from both achievement and mount. So if you're wanting 310% for your alts now, you will have to either complete the entire meta-achievement on that character or shell out the gold to obtain the mount flying speed.

    Very unfortunate for altoholics. :/

    Nnnnnooooooooo!

    Oh well. I stood to save 25,000g if I managed to make all the alts I wanted and that achievement stook around. I suppose that is pretty overpowered.

    Holy Nova don't give AoE damage? Why? The damage wasn't strong anyway, why they have removed it from this spell? It was very usefull PvP-wise.
