I never actually watched the cartoon that started the whole He-Man thing. I didn’t even know He-Man was a thing until I was much older. Considering all of the other stupid cartoons I watched around that time period, I have no idea how I missed out on one of the biggest toy crazes ever.
I did watch Darkwing Duck, though. Darkwing Duck is kind of like He-Man, right? No? Hmm.
When will we find out what is going to happen with JP/VP/HP/CP come MoP? Is it worth stockpiling these now so we hit level 90 with currency to spend on new gear?
The dungeon/raid currency system is still somewhat in flux, but the one thing I’m willing to guarantee is that stockpiling them now is not going to give you a significant advantage later. Blizzard likes to reset those currencies with new tiers of content, and especially with expansions. You might get a slight bump from having those things now, but I wouldn’t work too hard at it lest they all get wiped going into Pandaria.
Why didn’t blizz make str leather for monks to make them different from rogues/feral druids? Having 3 classes in a raid that want the same piece of armor seems like it will suck depending on the makeup. Str leather would’ve been pretty unique. I know the problem then would be them rolllng on str trinkets/rings…was it just easier from a gear standpoint?
Three classes fighting over the same gear is standard, not some crazy exception. Mages, warlocks, and priests all roll on the same cloth. Warriors, paladins, and death knights do the same. Holy paladins being the only class that uses spellpower plate is seen as a problem, not a good thing. You don’t want to inflate loot tables with items that only one class (or one spec of one class) can use. Unique armor classes just inflates loot tables and makes them a huge pain in the butt.
When I was still progression raiding, I cannot count the number of times spellpower plate dropped and absolutely nobody in the raid could use it. I healed as a paladin, and it was still annoying. You get one of them, maybe two, and then that piece of gear will never be useful again. Strength leather would turn into the same thing. If you have a monk at all, once he gets that piece of loot, that gear will never, ever be used by another person again. Agility leather, however, will be used by rogues, druids, and monks. Waiting your turn is way better than disenchanting the same useless drops every week. At least someone gets something.
I’ve heard that there’s a trainer in MoP that will sell you the mats to level cooking straight from 1-525 using vendor mats. Is this a beta only thing? Does anyone know more about it? Is it possible there’s something similar for first-aid too?
We haven’t seen this for first aid or other professions, but the cooking aid seems to be a permanent fixture come Mists of Pandaria.
Is Tempest Keep a functional starship?
It’s not a starship; it doesn’t traverse the stars. It’s an interdimensional ship. It shifts through the universe’s various planes and dimensions. Rather than flying from Argus to Draenor with rocket engines, it jumps (whilst floating) from place to place. It’s what would happen if wizards ran the Apollo program.
