News Round Up: Heroic Firelands Hotfixes and More
2011/07/26 at 8:08 PM
There were a lot of changes to Firelands tonight--in particular, heroic Baleroc and Majordomo have significantly less HP along with changed fight dynamics.
Heroic 25-man Baleroc is now 196 million down from 217 million while heroic 25-man Majordomo is now 432 million health.
This seems like it's less of a nerf like we first reported and more of a "change."
For example, in addition to lowering health, on Baleroc they also reduced the rate at which stacks are gained from Torment. This makes the fight much harder to heal, requiring either two tanks or more healers from a usually one tank and four healer fight. This changes the fight's dynamic completely.
Heroic Ragnaros Kill Video
Making good on their promise to post their Ragnaros kill video after another guild downed the fight,
posted it tonight. Can you count how many healers they used? Hint: not many.

News Round Up: Crystallized Firestones, Level 80 RAF, and Firelands Progression
2011/07/07 at 9:10 PM
There has been a lot of speculation that the rest of the VP items will indeed be able to become 391 ilevel with the use of a
. Instead of getting these upgrades from the vendor like you do for the other 391 items, you would be able to apply it to the item for your upgrade. Unfortunately the firestone droprate is lower than it should be, so few guilds have seen them, and the ones seen have been presumably used right away on the existing 391 vendor items so no one has tested this theory.
