So, why 49s?

The highest burst and damage-to-healing ratio makes for the most intense XP-off bracket in the game. I play in five different brackets and have fun in all of them. I love 49s for how much small things make a big impact, bringing the intensity right to the crumbling edge of manageable. One mistake can prompt a trip to the spirit healer, one clutch heal can give a teammate the extra 2 seconds to burst down an opponent, one well-called focus fire and CC can turn the tide in a flash.

In addition, a lot of 49ers "get" what XP-off is really about these days. This is the digital version of a pick-up game of basketball, and if that means finding ways to even out teams to make better games, 49s generally do it. You'll see trash-talkers, epeens, and trolls, but at the end of the day, you have people congratulating each other cross-faction on teamspeak for good plays and epic battles.

That's why 49s.

@Newcomers looking at old gear lists and @Veterans who have been inactive for the greater part of the century, immediately below is a list of Important Things That Have Changed:

Remember to turn off experience gain!
Maraudon items are redundant.
Sunken Temple items are unusable.
Many items from Blackrock Depths, such as Ribsplitters, are also unusable.
Scholomance, Stratholme, and Dire Maul are now tuned to lower levels than before, and have gear and quest rewards usable at 49.
Most importantly, ALL Battlegroups (yes, all of them) have been merged for PvP, so 49s who didn't transfer to Ruin for 3.2 (or level out) can now get games!
Some videos that showcase the 49's:

Good point. If we get going on Saturdays again, we can simply include that information.

I wondered that too, and would love more input. While most of the info concerns Cata's changes, we're seeing a few longtime absent players make a return here and there, and for them the info remains relevant. I'm not sure that warrants a section on the intro post, though. Not much changed (so far) for MoP in the way of gear, though a lot changed in the way of play. What do you all think we should list as relevant info?

Not as bursty (aside from maybe AS), so that part needs revision. Less burst also means videos don't showcase much; although most of them were bad attempts at comedy (some aspects I really hope weren't sincere?) to begin with.

Add yourself if you want.

Also Cirise can you add the link to the first post main thread?

I'm starting to get players that are itchy for postmaster runs on horde. For this particular run, I like grouping up as many postmaster people as possible for repeat drops. If anyone wants runs in the immediate future (next few days) please let me know.

Boomkins/priest/mages/lailu/locks are all good canidates. Alliance need not apply.

So recap:

Guys, no shirt, no shoes, free postmaster service
Girls, no shirt, no shoes, pics or it didn't happen.

Also it, now that jimmy mentioned it, the first post does seem due for a revamp.
The tepidist burst and damage-to-healing ratio makes for the most lukewarm XP-off bracket since caged malnourished hobo fights

This doesn't have the same ring to it anymore.
