Guide to Tanks and Tanking
2014/12/28 at 3:14 PM
We're always trying to help players improve at their roles, or pick up a new one, and so, thanks to
, we have a basic guide to tanks and tanking. Of course, if you're a seasoned tank, much of this may not be news to you, although you may learn something about classes other than your own. For newer players, would-be tanks, and anyone wanting to learn more about tanking, read on.
World of Warcraft Warlords of Draenor Guide to Tanks and Tanking for Patch 6.0.3.
Tanking in Warlords of Draenor has remained largely unchanged as a role since the introduction of active mitigation in Mists of Pandaria. If you're new to tanking, your base role responsibilities are as follows:
Ensure that any enemy mobs that can be tanked are attacking you instead of your fragile allies.
Position enemies to best enable your allies and avoid unnecessary damage.
Use your mitigation abilities to ensure you're taking as little damage as possible.
This guide aims to give you the basics on how to tank, and a summary of the five tanking classes in Warlords of Draenor.
In-Game References to Blizzard Employees and Community Members
2014/12/27 at 1:49 PM
Last year, we made a popular guide to in-game tributes to community members and Blizzard staff. With the launch of the new expansion Warlords of Draenor, Blizzard added many new references so we’ve updated our list for 2014!
This guide looks at Blizzard staff and WoW players who have their names referenced in WoW in some form--items, NPCs, quests, locations.
Did you know the NPCs placating the angry townsfolk in
The Culling of Stratholme
are named after the Customer Service team? Perhaps you've tamed
in Vash'jir, answered Blizzard Historian
Senior Historian Evelyna
's questions on the Timeless Isle, bought battle pets from
, or found
Perculia's Peculiar Signet
in Pandaria :)
We're happy to include additional references, but we've deliberately left out some items and details based on privacy concerns and requests.
Rare Mount Drops in Draenor
2014/12/26 at 3:10 PM
Now that raiding has started and the PvP season is in full swing, you may have some time now to go check out the awesome new mount drops in the Warlords of Draenor expansion. There are 7 new rare mount drops available in Draenor currently. 6 of these rare spawns have a 100% chance to drop their respective mounts for everyone that is able to tag the rare mob that drops it. The 7th,
, is different in that his mount is more rare but he is up virtually all the time - only 1
drops so not everyone can loot one from a single kill. This mount, though, can be traded or sold on the auction house.
Due to some of the new phasing technology, there may be different instances of a single zone on the same server. If you see someone in Chat say that a rare is up but you don't see it, if you get invited to that person's group you can be phased into the same-server-alternate-phase where the mount is and kill it there. Because most of these mounts (except
) behave along the same lines as personal loot, if you happen to have the corpse despawn on you or you somehow drop the phase, the Postmaster will mail you your drop. With the new group finder feature, you will often find groups camping the rare spawns or killing Nok-Karrosh.
All of the rares that drop mounts have several different spawn points, except
who has a static spawn point. Wowhead user
has created a
of the possible spawn locations of all the rare spawns that drop mounts.
