That being said, in the future, I will definitely bear those things in mind. I do tend to be a very "wordy" person, even though I spent about an hour trying to cut the question down as much as I could, lol.
Keep up the good work.
Epic work Lore, loved watching them..
So Lore you clearly LOVED this PST method, safe to assume it will be PST's standard format from now on?!
There aren't words to describe how incredible an accomplishment this is. Blizzard should make this an in-game Feat of Strength specifically for you.
it's more like a big bowl of wibbly wobbly... time-y wimey... stuff.
Just wanted to say in regards to the tailor question about crafting bags. They must not be aware that a new bag does exist but it comes from the August Celestials rep. Just take alot of dailies to get it...
"Because they're gnomes..." was the highlight for me.
Hey lore, fantastic episode and gratz on epsiode 100.
It would be nice to see simular episodes to this in future, but a scaled back version as the amount of work involved seems excessive, maybe a cut off point at X number of questions instead of all of them, so a middle ground between a normal PTS and this one.
I would just like to clarify my world boss pvp flaging question if I may, the issue I ran into on several Sha attempts and an attempt on Gallion was that even if no-one in the group was already flagged, the opposing faction could come with a smaller force, wait until your group pulled the boss and adds had spawned, swoop down into the DPS's AoE and get them flagged, any healer who then healed any flagged DPS also got flaged, quicking leaving half the raid open to being killed by the other faction and causing a wipe.
Rinse, repeat until the raid disbands, with no attempt made by the other faction to claim the boss for themselves.
Congrats on 100, and major cudos on the 7 hour PST! Impressive!
Also, on the first video you were asked why PST stands for, and you said you didn't know, and that it was just a term you heard in trade chat.
/tell was the "whisper" command in EQ. Much of the nomenclature for wow came from that game as you probably aware, but that was the particular phase to send a personal instant message between players. As an aside, many chat mods for WoW include shortcuts of /t as a shorthand for this reason. Because this was the short command in EQ. You could also use /tt to simply target someone and /tell them. This is included in those mods as well.
If you'ld switch to Holy, you'll first be set to 0/60k, then you'll get the +400% max mana, giving you an additional 240k max mana. Because the way the game is set up, you also get 240k (current) mana when you receive the bump in max mana.
Yesss, made Lore go "wat". I'm not exactly riled about the state of 25-mans, even though we're the only one left on our server, I just sort of wonder how niche they could let it get. Also I was kind of fishing for "beating a marginalized horse." My other question about Pandarens and alcoholism was, of course, tongue firmly in cheek.
Also, a very close facsimile of Kazzak did indeed raid capital cities during the BC release event, IIRC.

Lore, man ye be bat$#!t crazy for 7 hours of PST. props for keeping your word in answering nearly every question you received.
With the Spirits of Harmony BoP (grrr) and a pain to farm (even if you are literally farming them on the ranch) it seems to make crafted gear lack luster or a bit of a waste. why does blizz seem to be sticking with this model? especially now when we have to do a zillion dailies for rep to even buy the recipes. Along with that what is the point of the Epic gear that requires Blood spirits (uncommon drop rate). not much in difference compared to its raiding gear equivalent. appreciate your thoughts.
Azshara raid can stay dead, scrapping Azjol'nerub was criminal.
Just wanted to explain my Valor buff question:
With my Cloud Serpents maxed out and Anglers being "useless" (I'll get exalted with them through Nat Pagle's fish quests anyway), I net about 800-900 Valor on my main before I come upon my weekly alt-heroic spam. I can probably get about 400 Valor on him during that time, so if I 'invest' earlier in the week in capping out my main, I could get more Valor overall on my alt and as my main is better geared, it's even faster than doing it on my alt.
So how horrified would you have been if after you'd wrapped up the 7th video you realized you'd left the lens cap on?
Great job answering all of those questions :).
One note though, that you listed exactly why Haste is important to Prot Paladins as though it was why it wasn't important.
Hit > Expertise > Expertise (hard) > Mastery > Haste > Parry > Dodge.
The problem is that many, many tank items give stats that just aren't important, Parry/Dodge, that don't work well with the Synergy of Mastery/Haste.
Another step is that you need to meet quotas for Hit and Expertise, there is no real question there. The real gearing questions come down to how you should balance Mastery/Haste or if you should ignore them in favor of avoidance and so on. The response of 'Haste just doesn't matter because its so far down' doesn't make sense when Haste is the first decision you actually have to make about your gear.
I'm not here to question which is better or not, but that you seemed to dismiss the first actual gearing decision that you should make as I feel getting Hit and Expertise caps isn't so much a question as a matter of fact. You will have it or you won't do well, so the real decision is after that.
