Paragon and Method Defeat Sha of Fear
DREAM Paragon and Method defeated Sha of Fear early this morning to be the first guilds to clear Terrace of Endless Spring. Congratulations to them! So far, 23 guilds have defeated Tsulong and 21 have defeated Lei Shi.

Patch 5.1 Release Date Hint
Last Tuesday someone asked Dave Kosak if the patch would be arriving two months after Mists of Pandaria was released, as is indicated by several quests. Keep in mind Mists of Pandaria was launched on September 25th, so the closest date is this week! There is also a blue post about it being very, very soon on the forums.

Patch 5.1 Music
One of the PTR builds added almost 45 minutes of music! Turn on annotations to use the menu in the video.

Melee already get extra resources from haste because they get more swings. (Source)

The 5.1 class balance changes should be applied as a hotfix ASAP. Still a lot of this tier left!
5.1 isn't a new tier / season. We hotfix changes that are relatively safe to make. We can't hotfix everything. (Source)

Shaman (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator)
Since your plan is to make heals coming from non heal specs less effective how will you compensate enhancment shaman in pvp?
It's intended to be a nerf not a balance agnostic change. (Source)

What was the reasoning for removing Glyph of Supernova. the REAL reason, no the reasoning you gave for Cataclysm.
Knowing game rules is critical for PvP. Asking players to learn new rules (run from the dying lock!) in mid-season is harsh.
It's really not harsh. Harsh for morons, maybe. You have to stop patronizing your player base. We are smarter than you think.
Players can be smart and still overwhelmed with too much design churn. Being smart doesn't need to mean constantly relearning. (Source)

Warrior (Forums / Skills / Talent Calculator)
You realize by nerfing Gag Order you forcing the pvp cookie cutter specs to return, I thought MoP meant more choice, not less!
Last I looked, most warriors in PvP are using Gag Order, Second Wind and Avatar. I expect we'll see more diversity now. (Source)

GC is absolutely right. Gag order is stupid and takes no skill. Juking casts?
I actually think Gag Order does take skill, but we just want warriors to be more about mobility and less about range.
If all Warriors pick the same talent, its not an indication that its too strong, its an indication other choices are too weak.
By that logic if one talent does 1M damage, we need to buff the others? Gross simplification, but DKs and paladin have less mobility but more ranged attacks.

Rather than nerfing random various stuff, could you please look at cd-stacking and Taste for Blood instead?
TfB in PvP is very rare. However, bc it's so rare, nerfing it would have little balance impact but might stop flashy videos. (Source)

Are there plans to do more theorycraft discussions in the future, like the Beta TC thread?
We'd like to. It was really helpful for us as well. (Source)

Player model upgrades any time soon? Any news? No? OK, I thought so. That's really sad.
News hasn't changed. We're working on it. It's a huge project. We are as impatient as you. (Source)

Overall it seems that people welcome the honor point upgrading but nobody see the point about the CP. Is it just equality?
Currently, glads have more Conquest than they can spend. Others barely finish their gear. That's why we'll have to tweak #s. (Source)

You know, GC, you guys keep saying "slow down" and it's making me not want to play the game. This isn't fun.
It's in response to players saying "I have to do everything TODAY," when we put a lot of things into MoP. (Source)

Did you consider to add macro conditions?It's really annoying that drag a spell to action bars each time i changed my talent!
Considering only putting new spells on your bar while you're leveling, not at max level. (Source)

Hey GC, my friend keeps saying the cloud serpents arent dragons. Are they considered dragons in WoW lore?
We named them what we did to leave it nebulous. They aren't part of the whole Aspects scene. (Source)

Are you ever tempted to say things along the lines of "If you don't like the game, don't play" to the more stubborn naysayers?
That's not a great way to keep players. (Source)
