    According to GC, it looks like Anticipation and Deflection are going the way of the dodo, and crit immunity is going to be put on Imp Defensive Stance instead.

    In comparison to the way parry works now, the new parry gets nerfed by the 'wasted' charges when you dodge after a parry. However, in terms of how it works in Cataclysm alone, it's effect is never...

    A question I asked before, but continues to be relevant: Before WotLK, what did the extra 5-10 standbys do when they were not needed for a raid on any given night/week?

    This is precisely my point. If gear is not a good correlate of difficulty, then why is the argument made that if 10m is "easier" than 25m, then 25m needs better gear as a reward. Or that giving 25m...

    Not necessarily. Right now, 25m is balanced for 25 people in 25m gear, and 10m is balanced for 10 people in 10m gear. In Cataclysm, 25m will be balanced for 25 people in "10m" gear, while 10m will...
