The Patch 5.4 Monk Changes

So what changed for Monks in 5.4? A bunch of little changes and tweaks. A buff or two and a couple of nerfs to things that might have been overpowered anyway. There are no new talents and no talents were eliminated. You gained no new abilities. Brewmasters might have the biggest changes, with a Keg Smash nerf and the changes to Vengeance. Scroll through the notes and check out the video, below, which covers all the changes and how they affect you. General Spinning Crane Kick now functions like a smart heal, healing the 6 most injured friendly targets within…

The Patch 5.4 Druid Changes

So what happened with Druids in patch 5.4? What are the changes, buffs, nerfs, and new abilities? Scroll down, all the notes are posted, with links and some comments. Resto and Balance got the lion’s share of changes, Guardian Druids got nothing spefic to them, and Feral only a bit. But if you’re a Guardian and you tank you will want to pay close attention to the Vengeance changes. I think Resto Druids will be quite happy, Balance a bit less so. At least both of them get Nature’s Swiftness as a one of their abilities. That’s a nice buff all…

The Destruction of the Vale of Eternal Blossoms

As a part of the plans of one G. Hellscream the Vale of Eternal Blossoms took some damage. This is oneof the reasons the Pandarans would be much happier if the Horde (and Alliance, too) packed their bags and left their lands. Servers went live much earlier than usual after a major patch. I logged in at 10 am Pacific time and there were already a lot of people there. Hopped onto the flying beastie and took a look at the new vale. Click the images for larger views. The start of the trail of Destruction, the palace is in the…

The Patch 5.4 Death Knight Changes

The Patch 5.4 Death Knight Changes don’t amount to a whole lot this time ’round. You got some nice buffs, a new talent (Riposte,) Anti-Magic Shell was the only real nerf, and the rest were tweaks. Check the glyphs, there are a couple which you will probably want to use. See below for details. PvP: Resilience is now 72% and there are some other small changes. Go here for more. As for PvP gear, note that getting the two PvP trinkets gives you a nice Resilience bonus. You call if that’s enough to keep you from equipping a PvE trinket,…

The Patch 5.4 Warrior Changes

The Patch 5.4 Warrior Changes are much like those of the other classes. A mixed bag of buffs and other changes. Tanks should take a close look at the 5.4 changes, Arms could spend a glance, and Fury will just mostly yawn. Mostly, Warriors are in a better place with the changes and Bladestorm might even be coming back. Note that these patch remarks are up to date as of 9/4. They will be updated if there are any changes before or after the 5.4 launch. Note that there may be some significant changes still coming. The Patch 5.4 Warrior Changes: Contents…

The Siege of Orgimmar and The Fall of Hellscream!

Garrosh Hellscream has had it with his Horde (and they feel likewise.) He has made a pact with powers that are far mroe interesting to him and will make a NEW Horde, one far darker than anyone has seen before. It’s your job to see that that doesn’t happen. The Siege of Orgimmar  WoW Insider has a preliminary boss guide:  In Wrath of the Lich King, we rescued Valithria Dreamwalker. In Cataclysm, we had to contend with Chimaeron. Healers, if you were looking for a signature encounter for Mists of Pandaria, look no further than Malkorok. He’s a former member of…
