    While "mantle" is commonly used for shoulders in this game, it has also been used for shirts (Primitive Mantle), a chest Goblin Primitive's Mantle and cloaks Mantle of Stormwind. A cloak is probably the closest thing to the right usage of the word (I think it's sort of a long shawl).

    While this is not as evenly distributed as for example "greaves" which is used for both Legs and Boots (in reality, they're shinguards) kinda evenly, one should still not presume that a Shirt piece would affect shoulders just because of an ambiguous name...

    I wasn't aware it'd been used for anything other than shoulders - thanks for clearing that up.

    Yeah I guess I was clutching at straws a bit in my hope that it was finally an option to disable the damn shoulders. Shame really. It'd have been the perfect type of vanity reward for something like the Brawler's Guild. Far better than having a little meaningless 'buff' appear in the top right-hand corner of your screen that no one else will really notice unless they checked for it.

    Wild Quiver (New) Deals ranged weapon damage. Requires Crossbows.
    Lolwut? Is that payback for being able to transmogrify any ranged weapon type into another since the start?

    Does this mean that BM hunters will not have it if isn't chosen by talents ? (so no silencing shot?)

    indeed; basicly BM looses their advantage of their stun; while MM gets binding shot as abilty.

    I don't feel like logging into WoW, but is that Siphon Life glyph change a buff for demo locks?

    Read again, it says T14 2PC.

    OT: Hordebreaker's a waaay cooler title than Darkspear Revolutionary ):

    What do those "New Strings" mean? The second one I'm guessing refers to Terms of Service, but "Model"? Anyone know?

    Whats the point of that? As long as the crossbows look stupid, ugly and tiny when sheathed, I will never wear a crossbow.

    I really don't understand why they keep buffing CH and HR when it's 10 man healing that's more of a problem for shammies, and that shit isn't going to help.

    This is a tooltip fix. Rune Strike already does 200% weapon damage due to the 25% buff it got from hotfixes a while ago.

    If the faction-specific scenarios are anything to go by, you'll be able to do the opposing questline in the following patch cycle.

    Eh, for the most part their values haven't been upped since WotLK.

    I'm never one to complain about damage nerfs, but nerf my flavor abilities and I'll burn down a preschool! With that said, I am NOT a fan of nerfing Warlock Water Walking and Water Strider Walking. Its about as necessary as having a thumb on my neck. (Which I will be getting removed soon)
  1. Pancha's Avatar
    I really hate the Strider nerf. It was one of few mounts that I liked purely based on its water walking abilities. Ah well, I suppose it won't be that easy to get away from Isle of thunder mobs :-)
