The very fact that Blizz released MoP gear that an 80 could even wear (in past expacs, lowest level gear was previous level cap - 3, so 57 for BC, 67 for Wrath, 77 for Cata) showed that whatever intern they hired to allocate the items in their database really fucked up.
just look at the 80-84 bg bracket and the 80 twinks stand out like a sore thumb lol.
And if you want to make some quick gold start farming mobs in Jade Forest sell the blues, i found the Mail Agility helm and sold it for 12k gold sold pretty much as soon as listed it.

You are lying! I never hit you! YOU ARE TEARING ME APART, LISA!
Guys you forgot one thing... Since MoP, avoidance doesn't work the same. Block isn't on the same ctc table than parry/dodge/miss are.

I really think that this is starting to spill into current raiding tiers, and it depends on how many bosses fall to this bug, Blizzard will start working faster on a fix. I do kinda think it's a cool bug, just hoping it doesn't start ruining things.
its totally possible. Ive yet to try it as i dont have much time to give it solid attempts.
this is me doing normal mode ICC Marrowgarr...at 50 seconds in you can see the bug happen (going from 80K vengeance to over 250K). When this happens it will also buff your sacred shield (as you can see later in the fight). The amount of vengeance gained is determined by the size of the hit. On LK heroic 25...you can get past 4mil vengeance...allowing you to kill him in under 2 mins.
I can easily see someone killing stone guard if the get the bug to proc many times in a row...making the paladin do insane dps/absorbs.
I can't wait for this to be solo'd on heroic next week. Incase you were all wondering, this is not the first time a level 80 has solo'd it. Heroic mode entails having a level 90 healer help you paint the floor, only healing themselves. You can sell the BiS gear to the healers for about 30k a run.
Done with an exploit? Meh, color me not caring/not impressed. *rolls eyes*
You must show no mercy, Nor have any belief whatsoever in how others judge you: For your greatness will silence them all!
Is there some reason for the weird combination of int, spirit and str gear used?
Although its legit due to gear, with Vengeance it seems OTT. There was an 80 Prot Paladin on my realm yesterday soloing SW Guards on a PVE Server. I have full PVP Gear as a Mage, and the guy absorbed all what I threw at him and started hitting me for 60k plus. He only died when about 4 90s dropped on him. He came back, and I started looking at his stats. Sacred Shield absorbing 90k per tick? OTT
Vengeance is supposed to be 2% of unmitigated damage taken. Say a boss hits a tank with around 80% from armour + passives for 10k. This means a 50k unmitigated hit, which translates to 1k vengeance. Say that same boss gives me 1 million vengeance because I'm using this bug, would you call that clever use of game mechanics? I know I wouldn't.
So yes, it IS an exploit.
As long as that gear exists, people will find clever ways to use it even in current content. Just fixing the vengeance mastery bug for protection paladins won't remove the underlying issue, and someone will eventually find another way to use that gear on lvl 90 content.
