Lumineus, any news on polearms and two-handed weapons being able to cover each other? ( For DKs and paladins )
I think I need to get into gear and try to signal boost the effort to make LFR gear able to obtain outside of LFR. Any of us can be victim to horrid RNG and never get that one piece of gear no matter how many bonus rolls we give out or attempts we do. Not just for tier gear either -- we need the option of getting the off spec pieces as well!
Also, wtb backpack being 24 slot.

I'm a little paladin short and stout,
here is my hammer and here is my mount,
when I see a Horde, I scream and shout,
then I pop a bubble and hearthstone out
Um, this kinda is big news ( I guess for paladins we don't have to give a shit since we can select all roles for loot drop ) but ehhhhh. I don't like the sound of this for xmog. Too early to judge.
From front page mmo champ -
We are looking to bring the personal loot system that's currently used in LFR to dungeons as well, which will of course solve that problem. Randomly matching players together just doesn't match well with coordination and universal agreements over loot distribution. No announcements yet on when that will be coming, but it won't make it for 5.4.
Also, low level gear does not matter too much because there is no ilvl requirement for dungeons until you reach Cata content.
It wouldn't just be for low level dungeons.
Please do not add an extra element of RNG to what is already there.
It'd actually be less RNG because you're not competing against an unknown element of rolls by the other players you're randomly matched with.
I dislike the LFR loot system because when I kill a boss, I like seeing loot drop regardless of whether it's for me or not. I am not a fan of "personal" rolls and it honestly feels like a huge nerf when you put it in low level dungeons.
I kind of agree with that, personally, I'd like for loot drops to still be shown for everyone but I know it's not necessarily as simple as that.
Clearly the OP of this thread, as well as thousands before it, are based on the fact that a random group of strangers being matched to take on content will tend not to come to universal agreements on how loot should be distributed. Those situations do not make most people happy. This would be a change for high level progression dungeons as well, the ones where your rolls on loot can determine how quickly you progress.
I'll stop here and say there aren't any specific details available to share, where it would apply, or when, but it is something we are looking at implementing and we'd appreciate any feedback on how this might impact how you want to play the game.
My guess would be that it will only apply to groups using the Dungeon Finder tool, otherwise it would indeed royally suck. That would eliminate the possibility obtaining old weapons or cloaks that have agility.
Here's what I'm rockin for Ret right now
and for my Prot set
So currently on the PTR, Paladin T16 colors are as followed:
LFR - White/Light Blue version
Normal + Flex - Yellow
Heroic - Dark/Red Orange
Have not seen any sign of the robed version of it. Both Ret/Prot/Holy Chests, Tier and offpieces, are non-robe atm.
Also, Garrosh will drop his shoulders, Tusks of Mannoroth. They only drop from Normal and Heroic difficulty, at least when you filter the difficulties. Being PTR, things are still subject to change, of course.
Kaisen of Mannoroth <Reckoning>
US 11 H 16/16 - Tier 14
US 9 H 13/13 - Tier 15
US 8 H 14/14 - Tier 16
Distance hearts, when rejoined as one... May find the light within.
Well that's a new way for the Blood Elf male shoulders to look messed up. Usually it's that huge gap between the body and the armor, this time we got that plus a way oversized armor to boot.
OMG 13:37 - Then Jesus said to His disciples, "Cleave unto me, and I shall grant to thee the blessing of eternal salvation."
And His disciples said unto Him, "Can we get Kings instead?"
They would not leave out LFR and Flex Tusks when every single other item is in. Garrosh drops another pair of crit/mastery plate shoulders, which do drop in all four difficulties:
Pretty clear to me that the Tusks a little bone of prestige they're tossing to their hardcores.
It looks better on fem draenei. Yes, this is shameless self-advertising.
Former unique snowflake
Solo content > LFD > > > LFR > banging my head against desk > raiding > eating shit > pvp
Haha! Awesome. I like the shoulders far better on a draenei female. Too many shoulders make human males look top-heavy.
Even though the Avenger set is pretty easy to get these days, I still like to rock it as it really stands out due to the color. I've matched it here with the two pieces I think best match up in color/that bring out the other colors. Weapon: Felsteel Reaper. Cloak: Eternal Cloak

Nice look overall
The axe was born to go with that set.
