    Invincible FAQ, Arena Issues, Gear changes in Cataclysm

    With all the Season 8 / Tier 10 announcement, I missed a couple of minor announcements in the past 2 days, including a few Arena issues and a veeeery long posts about warriors stealing my hunter's gear, like my Brutality Blade wasn't enough.

    Q. Is it a random drop or is it a guaranteed drop?
    A. Much like Mimiron's head, one lucky player will be able to attain this incredible mount when the Lich King is defeated in his strongest form.
    Arena Point Wipe Clarification

    Due to the delay in the arena season we are in the process of reimbursing arena points to all eligible participants. Characters will be returned to the amount they had on Tuesday, January 26th. All Arena points will then be wiped when season 8 begins. We apologize for the confusion this caused and appreciate your understanding
    2v2 Arena Titles

We will be removing the mistaken awards and titles. For some players this will occur upon logging out. For others we will correct the error on the next maintenance period.

    We are very sorry for any inconvenience or confusion this may have caused.

    [blizzquote="Zarhym;http://blue.mmo-champion.com/1/22749238577-epic-crafting-gunship-battle.html]As the confrontation with the Lich King draws nearer, fire erupts in the skies above Icecrown Citadel. Skybreaker and Orgrim's Hammer, the flag-flying gunships of the Alliance and Horde, clash near Deathbringer's Rise -- but it wasn’t too long ago that they were just ideas on paper.

    The Night Elf Mohawk Has Packed Up
    [blizzquote="Crygil;http://blue.mmo-champion.com/1/22748778362-the-night-elf-mohawk-has-packed-up.html] You’ve pitied and you’ve been pitied, but the time has come for the Night Elf Mohawk to pack up his Mohawk Grenades and move on. You looked goooood while his visit lasted, Azeroth, but his work here is done...for now. [/blizzquote"]

    Plate DPS Classes Using Mail/Leather
    Originally Posted by Bornakk (Blue Tracker)
    We currently understand that plate dps classes are picking up leather and/or mail items as some of them currently work better for their class/spec. This post is a reminder of what we mentioned at BlizzCon 2009. In Cataclysm, plate items will have Strength on them while mail and leather will have Agility and the difference between these items will be greater than they are now. We don’t want anyone who is investing in certain items right now to be disappointed with them when the changes take effect.

    As we have done in previous expansions, we plan to release a patch that updates the game systems shortly before the full expansion content goes live so you will still be experiencing Wrath of the Lich King content with the new stat systems for at least a short period of time. All classes will be changing a lot in Cataclysm and we will announce all of the changes in advance to try and prevent players from being taken by surprise. In the mean time, please make your item selections with both current and future content in mind.

    [...] I wanted to address some of the points that have been brought up in this thread so far.

    The original post was directed at the plate wearers because a mail-based class who is wearing leather going into Cataclysm won’t be at the same disadvantage as a plate-based class who is wearing leather or mail will be.

    For an enhancement shaman or hunter, the mail will lose its Intellect, but the physical dps mail and leather will both have Agility that enhancement shaman and hunters want. However, we are also going to offer a small additional incentive for characters to wear “their” armor so it will encourage shaman and hunters to wear mail over leather, balance druids to want leather over cloth, holy paladins to prefer plate, etc.

    We realize everyone will have lots of questions about what will happen to their gear, and we will eventually share all of that with you. We just wanted to post this reminder for plate wearers who are currently after leather and/or mail items to let them they will really not want it when we convert to the next expansion.

    Part of the Cataclysm re-itemization will be to change all of the old (pre-Wrath of the Lich King) items, which will include doing things like actually having low level balance druid leather or holy paladin plate.

    [...] If you are focused on Icecrown progression right now, as you probably should be, then pick whatever gear makes the most sense for your character. All we wanted to point out is that once we get closer to Cataclysm, all of your gear is going to change. In most cases, a good piece will still be good for you. In the dps warrior, paladin and DK case, the now +Agility leather and mail you might be wearing will be bad for you. If you plan to keep raiding after the conversion, that might be a problem. If you planned to use your Icecrown gear to help you level in Cataclysm, that might be a problem. It's just a public service announcement for players who might not be familiar with the Catalcysm stats plan.

    [...] The intention isn't to have people change their bidding/rolling habits right now. If the item is an upgrade right now for current content you should probably go for it.

    The intention is to make sure players know that the leather/mail items probably won't be very useful when we do reach Cataclysm so having some extra plate items as backups will probably be more helpful than another abyss crystal at that point in time. Cataclysm is not right around the corner but if you are using (just tossing a number out there) 8 leather items, replacing all of them may take more than a couple weeks.

    I dont know what it is about Stormwind AH, but thats the only place where I've ever gotten hit by them.

    A positive side of that is that I'm allways aware of it when I'm there so I can remove it fast :P

    I think they're cool and all, but my paladin just cant pull of a night elf mohawk.

    People that have a problem with plate classes rolling on mail/leather gear belong on RP servers. As a fury warrior like 75% of the off piece gear I use is/will be agi gear, and upgrade is an upgrade.

    Plate DPS Classes Using Mail/Leather
    TL;DR

    Maybe if they itemized plate gear better, plate users wouldn't roll on leather/mail. That has always been the answer to this problem. Yet Blizz repeats the same thing over and over.

    Well, if they hold to Ulduar and TOC *something* will drop in 10 man.

    In Ulduar Yogg+0 in 10 man dropped the Tentacle, Mims Head dropped in 25.

    In ToC, a Tribute to Immortality dropped the Swift Alliance Steed/Horde Wolf and then in 25 dropped the Crusaders White/Black Warhorse.
