    Just about the only thing that wasn't already hotfixed in is the hunter aspects.

    found the blue:
    The Battle of Theramore, the first of many Scenarios coming to World of Warcraft, is a story-changing event that will be available to level-85 characters for one week only -- the week leading up to the launch of Mists of Pandaria on September 25.

    For the duration of the week of September 18-24, level-85 characters will be able to queue up for and participate in the Alliance and Horde versions of this new Scenario with two friends. (Please note: if friends are not available to you at the time, two will be provided. Batteries not included. Subject to change. Void where prohibited.)

    After the lifting of the mists, the Battle of Theramore will join all other Scenarios as level-90-only content, and everyone -- including players who missed it at level 85 -- will be able to play through the event. Upon completing the Scenario for the first time, players will see the aftermath of the battle whenever visiting Theramore in Dustwallow Marsh. Theramore will eventually be changed permanently to its post-battle state in a future patch, sometime after the launch of Mists of Pandaria, whether or not players have completed the Scenario.

    We’ll see you there!

    It's why I haven't gotten the drake yet then, correct? My drake is just a display error :P
    I'm perfectly okay with change.
    It's you who can't accept.

The simple fact that you can tame exotic pet's is a Big bonus to an already fun spec.
    You must be the one who never played it in the past. Back in BC, it was one of the most boring specs around. You could raid with one button doing everything. A single macro (and could make an additional macro that was called for the first to activate pet related abilities). Bind this macro to something like the scroll wheel on your mouse and you never had to even pay attention to the screen for most boss fights. Scroll away while doing other things and top the charts. Really. It was just silly. But hey, if your idea of "fun" is being completely skill-less, no wonder you enjoyed it "in the past."
    And prior to 5.0.4, I find it difficult to believe that you "consistently" did better with BM and compared to others on an even level. If anything, that just speaks of the exceptionally low caliber of players you grouped with. And burden of proof on that one is on you. Fact remains, however, on some fights, BM was completely useless. For instance, I tried it out on Al'akir near the start of Cata. Why yes, never being able to use Kill Command is fun. And is it Madness these days that cause issues? Mm, I think I read that somewhere.

    I do have to agree with the sparse amount of people laughing at the vast majority of posters so far claiming these "buffs" or "nerfs" are so uncalled for when they've been in the game before today's patch. This is a patch to update tooltips. Hotfixes can be applied without a patch, and often do change numbers and values for spells and abilities. However, to update the tooltips to correspond to the hotfixed values, a client side patch is required. Anyone who's been playing longer than a month or so KNOWS THIS. It's a topic of conversation with the Blues very, very often. Hell, just about every time a hotfix goes out, it's coupled with a statement explaining that the tooltips will not be updated until a client side patch is released. Sometimes the hotfixes are ready for release every day, but the patch takes a while to code and put together before they can avail it to the public. C'mon now, people. Were you born, figuratively speaking in regards to the game, yesterday? And if so, with some of you having 85 characters in your signatures, you should start working for the leveling agencies. Because, damn, you're good. :P

    Prior to and prior on are two different meanings. Perhaps the grammar isn't completely correct in the quoted statement, but it's still different than saying PRIOR TO. "It would be one week prior, on the 18th," is about how it should be read. You could remove "on the 18th" and the statement could standalone just fine. Prior To, following grammar, would require some kind of phrase after it just to keep it from being an improper statement.

    Hmm . . . nice to see my bear getting AoE threat buffed. Was tired of losing peripheral mobs to DPS.

    Not so happy about the paladin nerfs, but that doesn't look like anything to worry about. 3% nerf to mastery and a bit of a nerf to divine storm. We'll be fine.

    If a video game developer removed tumors from players, they'd whine about nerfing their loss in weight and access to radiation powers. -Cracked.com

    Technically, if you were losing threat prior to today's patch, you're still going to afterwards as it's mostly just a tooltip update to hotfixes that have been applied since 5.0.4's release. The majority of the "changes" have been active the entire time.

    It does, actually. This "Display error" is the only one my brother and my roommate are missing, therefor, they can't get the achievement finished.

    Leaving out a comma in that quote does not excuse someone from extrapolating an entirely diifferent meaning, adding in their own words to change it. Prior to as you said, =/= prior alone.

    Personally I have always enjoyed Bm as a class and as my main, even when bm was not viable in cata, i used mm despite the fact I wasnt a big fan and I enjoyed it. Now I have the opportunity to fight as a Bm and it has been so great so you have no right to badmouth Bm in anyway. At least if you want to badmouth bm pls add this quote 'to myself' so others will knw thats your own preference.. Dont forget you are not the only one playing wow here. Other people enjoy the class and disagree with you(i wont go into details).. The point im making here is that, thank you for making your opinion heard, we have seen it.

    I'm surprised they've left the pre-exp events so late this time. In pre-wrath and pre-cata the events went on much longer.

    Just to sum up, I wasn't trying to give out about warriors and I don't play one so I don't understand the mechs of em fully. I said a few times that it just didn't make sense to me so I wish people such as nine3cubed would stop trying to turn my comments into me QQing about the issue. I simple asked some questions as 'again' in the number of years I don't remember something such as this.

    Also major derp that I missed the tooltip info, normally the first thing I look for.. should have gone to spec-savers

    Anywho questions answered, moving on. \o
