If you don't quit whining about class balance, the Governator will come over to your house and impregnate your maid.
Welcome back listeners, to episode 19 of the Warcraft Lounge.
The Midsummer Fire Festival is in full swing. You can get crazy guild rep just by honoring the flames, and desecrating the opposition. Don't forget, there are also fires located in Northrend and Cataclysm zones to snuff.
The 4.2 Patch Notes. Damn, there is a lot to keep track of.
SONS OF BITCHES! Looks like Blizzard is onto us! Here's why:
With the release of 4.2 all Valor Points will be down-converted to Justice Points, and all Conquest Points will be down-converted to Honor Points. To curb the ability to sell items back to the vendors after the conversion for the higher currency, we’re instituting a new sellback policy for items purchased directly before currency down-conversions.Items purchased within the two hour window before the release of 4.2 will lose their ability to be sold back to the vendor when the realms are brought down for maintenance. No refunds will be granted for items purchased during this time, either by the in-game vendors, or our support departments.
As an example, I buy the Vicious Gladiator's Battle Staff at 2:30 a.m. The servers come down for the release of 4.2 half an hour later. Normally I would still have an hour and a half after the servers return to sell the item back to the vendor. With this policy change though, upon logging in my item can no longer be sold back to the vendor.
This policy is only in effect for maintenances that include currency down-conversions, such as the release of 4.2. To ensure you don’t purchase the wrong item with the inability to sell it back, we recommend buying well before the final two hours so there’s time to change any incorrect purchases.
For more information on the down-conversion please refer to: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/2880562
Here is the Ghostcrawler blog regarding class balance, that got everyone's panties in a bunch. I am pretty sure, on his last day of work, he is going to rip into the playerbase.
Courtesy of Ready4Raiding, here is a strategy video for Occu'thar. Watch it, learn it, watch it again. Don't be 'that guy'.
Courtey os Learn2raid, here are the rest of the Firelands strategy guides.
Here is the skinny on the new policy for Arena Weapons Season 10 Conquest Point weapons will only be purchasable once a required minimum sum of Conquest Points has been reached during the current season. For example, Ruthless Gladiator's Pike costs 3400 Conquest Points to purchase. However, players must first earn a total of 11650 Conquest Points during Season 10 before they are able to purchase it. Season 9 Honor Point weapons will only be purchasable once a required minimum sum of Honor Points has been reached during the current season. For example, Vicious Gladiator's Pike costs 3400 Honor Points to purchase. However, players must first earn a total of 18500 Honor Points during Season 10 before they are able to purchase it. Once the minimum sum of points required to purchase weapons is reached, all available weapons can be purchased for their listed costs. The point requirement is not reset once a purchase is made.
