    Wow. I can see a lot of people charging a lot of gold for invitations.

    Was looking forward to it, guess I won't be able to participate now.

    In fact, Cataclysm and Supernova have been removed. A genius move by blizzard not mentioned in the patch notes.

    So they're making Razorgore and Viscidus soloable easier!

    Cataclysm has been removed in this build, not added. You copied it wrong.

  13. #13
    Why do they hate discipline priests? We are miles below 2nd weakest healer and yet we get 0 buffs.
    Also finally monk nerfs. Its about time. All that greenness on WoL was hurting my eyes.

    Still no shaman changes... :-(

    wow black market for inventations really? that is a Fing stupid move blizzard now I will never get in. Horde War Council guild buys everything the black market AH

  16. #16
    Well, I guess blizzard had to gate the Brawler's Guild in some way. Mists of Gated Content lives on.

  17. #17
    They definitely need to change that Brawlers Guild requirement.

  18. #18
    Heh, mages got the stupid pyroblast change reverted. Good for them.

    That's not necessarily gated content. Though it is a bit silly unless the Brawler's guild is really really really really hard.

    Hammernerfed Mistweavers, seems a bit too much IMO. Nerfing mana cost AND a massive output reduction is hard.
