Thats right we’ve assembled a six person team and we are working through the instances old school Vanilla wow style with the twist of using the latest class to the game, Monks!
In the house this time around we have

The Warlords of Draenor cinematic button was added to the menu, as well as separate graphical settings for battlegrounds and raids. The Group Finder UI was also improved.
Tanks in PvP
- tanks have been non-viable in serious PvP for several expansions now.
- fighting against tanks was very frustrating, not fun.
- near-invincible, numerous CC abilities (primary stuns),
- but did little enough damage to not be able to kill you (in most cases, anyway).
- downside that people who prefer to play tanks are excluded from doing so in PvP.
- Our other changes to tanks in Warlords of Draenor got us most of the way there.
- Tanks’ damage somewhat weaker than damage dealers, but not trivial.
- removed the additional CC that they had during the CC Disarmament and Ability Pruning.
- All that remains is their invincibility.
- So, Tanks now take 25% additional damage while engaged in PvP combat.
Tailors got a new mount, the [Creeping Carpet.]
There was a theorycraft discussion that i tried to take notes on but blood started coming out of my eyes so i had to stop.
Monk Solo Kill – Horridon
Wannoob managed to kill Horridon on his own after 140 attempts. You can find more details in the video’s at mmo-champion. Hats off to the dude with the full bucket of urine, surrounded by empty Redbull cans with his mom shouting to take the trash out.

The Continuing Saga of Crazy Train?
Any Main developments?
Wemb: Still working on my Shammy, also doing stuff on my Druid, have been playing more cat after setting up tell me when on that toon to manage all the cooldowns you have to juggle. then got some great drops from celestials and ordos then did a five man and realised that i dont love playing my cat as much as i thought!
LFR or Flex action?
Wemb: great flex turnout today, did first wing 2 bosses of second wing. I played shammy on first wing- still low dps but not as bad as it has been & switched to tank for 2nd wing to tank with son deddy which is always nice as he is a good tank.
The Wempossible Dream
can Wemb level his paladin from 15-90 through pugging and gathering, no quests (except for dungeons as decreed by Rosie), no pet battling, or will he get bored and go in search of other shiny things?
Wemb: Ding 84!
Did another Vortex Pinnacle where all the action seems to be. Did the first boss and leapt into the whirlwind to get to the next section. turned around and the healer was there but no one else. Waited a bit…then said to the healer “please god dont tell me they dont know how the transport works?” He said, “um ok, but i think they dont” So i leapt off the edge and they were indeed that noobish. I came back at the start and showed them and they were so relieved not to get abused that it made me feel sad. So i taught them the rest of the fights and stuff and i have to say they were one of the best ever pugs!
