there's no new boss mechanics, from what I noticed there's only minor detail changes, and "previously irrelevant things" turned into things you really have to pay attention.

For example on the water boss on Jade temple, there's a small jet of water he toss on whoever is too far away from him, on heroic you need to be miles away from him and it deals really crap dmg .. (tbh I never even noticed on heroic) ..

but on challenge mode each jet hits for like 60k-70k .. so it's not something you can ignore and it activates like 25y away from the boss, so you HAVE to have the group clumped near him. Or on Gate of the Setting Sun, that flying boss that roams around spitting fire in the room (and poison puddles) ... they tick for 90k per sec =p. And the boss when he grabs someone it easily does ~400k over time to them (and it can target the healer =p ).

everything hits a LOT harder .. some mobs hit for 60-80k per swing. Which is quite hard =p ..

there's new patrols .. some pulls can easily be linked by patrols and considering you have to cc 1-2 mobs per pull (if it's 3+ packs) .. a early broken CC with a pat nearby can easily turn into a wipe.

you can't just rush in, pull and zerg things. A bad pull with a certain mob not CC'd can easily make things go downhill. He can cast something that deals obscene amount of dmg .. a heal that's not interrupted can easily heal over half of the mobs hp .. etc etc.

We were VERY close to silver .. (around 1-3 min depending on the instance) .. so it's really doable with heroic gear.

but yeh, it's all about communication, knowing what to cc, being efficient on avoiding unecessary dmg and doing as much dmg as possible.

If they don't nerf, 90% of the playerbase wont go beyond bronze =p

Im hearing that alchemy is better for tanks then Jewelcrafting..anyone agree..i would like some peoples opinion before i make that jump and start buying mats
Wasn't it before? Or at least competitive, with additional options..

81 stat with JC, or mastery elixir + 30% and armor/resist elixir + 30%, or Steelskin + 30%.

Except Mixo isn't flat 30%; e.g. 51% with armor elixir.

Dear Blizzard,

Please fix the Unholy Blight and Howling Blast bug.

Love, Foibles.

What's the bug?

I didn't both to take UB as Frost, because I can spam AE diseases, and PS-Pest if I really want the second one, with no CD, for the price of an OB.

So I have no experience with the bug.

Challenging heroics, with a reward? ZOMGYES.

HB doesn't apply frost fever to splah targets, and UB only puts up both diseases once, on one target.

First impression of Brewmaster tanking (Did RFC and DM): That's pretty fun. Though if I hear "NOT ENOUGH ENERGY" again, I will possibly violently assault my speakers.
