    Couple of nitpicks:

    1. In Cataclysm, after your seven weekly dungeons were done, you got zero valor from them, not reduced valor. They also didn't get you all the way to the valor cap IIRC. The...

    This isn't an ethical question but a business one. There are PvP games where skill determines everything and PvP games with RPG elements where time spent factors in. WoW will probably always be in...

    It seems like some of the current problems with PvP vs. PvE gear could be solved by:

    * Adding more PvP power to the 476 honor gear, bringing it close to 496 PvE gear in damage output. This would...

    It's a common misconception that if fewer players run LFR, queue times will automatically go up. Queue times only go up if (a) role imbalance forces certain roles to wait, (b) fewer than 25 people...

    Combining the lockouts and equalizing the loot was definitely a good change for me. I quit 25s after BC because I didn't like herding 25 cats, and while I had fun doing 10s in Wrath, I didn't like:...

    I had a kind of zany idea about leveling alts: if you have a max-level character, perhaps you should be allowed to pick up quests at a lower level than you could the first time through. So, instead...

    I vaguely remember a fight where an NPC runs off to fight adds while you deal with the boss. Maybe Akama during the Illidan fight? But I think it happened far enough away that you normally don't...

    While most of the Throne of Thunder fights have a taunt swap for a debuff, tanks often have other stuff to do as well. Jin'rock has a bit of positioning (though it's simple), Horridon has a bunch of...

    Nalak is basically a scaled-up Isle of Thunder rare, so they've got that covered.

    I expect Blizzard to take at least one more swing at world bosses, probably in 5.4. One of them will probably a...

    I would be in the "wait, that's it?" category if the big game-changer were tri-spec (it probably isn't). I play a elemental/resto shaman as my main in Mists, and it's hard enough keeping reasonable...

    Spirit swords are unusual, I think because holy paladins and mistweavers would be the only users, but Jin'rokh drops one.

    I've been seeing a lot of "all we have is our DPS" from mages, which is kind of puzzling. If mages can't do viable DPS, that would be a problem, full stop. If mages have substantially less unique...
