    What do you think?
    Is it worth keeping the T6 4p bonus for increased Shield Slam Damage?
    Or is it better to gear for max AP/Crit?

    Well crap. Not only was my advice bad, I already followed it.

    Made a few corrections, added link to Xav's instance power leveling guide (may move it above Utgarde).

    I'm sure I'll figure it out over the coming weeks, but if you're up for listing them now due to beta experience:

    Which specific areas/encounters are they useful for?

    Do we have upcoming fights that are pure magic damage, where normal tank stats are bypassed (like Hydross, or 1st boss of Arcatraz/Mana Tombs)?

    I know there is an ability called "Wife's Stare of Death" that some will encounter early on. I think it requires a mix of frost, fire, and shadow resist.

    This is a lie, there is no way to reduce the "Wife's Stare of Death" via armor, or magic resistances. It is 100% undispellable once locked on, but can be avoided by pre-emptively purchasing "Gift Box of Magical Shoes and Purses" and activating the trap outside the raid.

Only use a timed healing trinket such as Spyglass of the Hidden Fleet if you are confident you can switch it out with DPS trinkets regularly w/o forgetting. If you've got a major potion stockpile or you're leveling w/ a healer, or if you don't have good healing trinkets, switch to two straight DPS trinkets should work for everything, including tanking.
    For new tanks without access to advanced gear, here is a poor mans trinket that is fairly easy to get - while leveling it may be a nice substitute for the Talisman of Valor - Essence Infused Mushroom - Item - World of Warcraft

    dailies will give Exp, just not enough that you want to rely on them to get to level up, and they'll hit grey pretty fast once you ding 72 or whatever.

    I had originally said Bagnon, but it turns out Bagnon was not what I was using. It may very well be Carbonite. I'll check.

    Btw, I've been online since beta is up finishing out my own quests, so you've got a delay of about an hour here before I get back to this. We do have a podcast we recorded last night as well. Stay tuned.

    Despise that feature, but I found a way to turn it off a while back.

    No one can confirm or deny until WotLK is live.

    I can say without a doubt that I purposely picked some dailies, turned them in and got experience for them in Beta. We have no idea what will happen live until live hits. The conflicting reports you hear are probably people citing that they didn't give experience when TBC came out. So in Beta, you got EXP, but no one has any clue for live.

    That looks a lot like Combuctor - I use it for my bags and it looks just like that. There is a component of Bagnon in there, though, so that may be what you're thinking of.

    Well, good enough then. I have no regular Outlands quests left so might as well...
