News Round Up: Shorter Raid Cooldowns, Darkmoon Rabbit, 5.0.4 Class Mechanics
2012/09/03 at 2:16 PM
Now that 5.0.4 is live and players have had time to try out the new abilities, there's been many blue posts over the long weekend clarifying class mechanics and procs for abilities, weapons, and trinkets. You may also have noticed that some long cooldowns in 5.0.4 reset between raid encounters like
: there are plans to have even more 5+ minute cooldowns function this same way.
Also of particular note:
The Darkmoon Faire is back in town and brings with it
. This ferocious rabbit requires a large raid to take down and drops
one lucky player can win. Everyone in the raid is awarded
That Rabbit's Dynamite!
Most long-term cooldowns are not reset when a raid encounter ends. The ones we specifically wanted to hit were the battle rezes and the big, raid-wide cooldowns like
. The question we asked ourselves was: would a reasonable, progression-oriented but not world-first guild delay their next pull by several minutes to wait for X to come off of cooldo

The Scroll of Resurrection program received some updates today for Mists of Pandaria, in light of players leveling Monks. Low-level Pandaren cannot receive Scroll of Resurrection rewards, all Monks will be ineligible for rewards, and talents will no longer be preselected.
However, Zarhym clarified that Monks will still be able to take full advantages of RAF bonuses as well as remain eligible for realm firsts. In addition there's no news about the mount rewards being removed anytime soon:

News Round Up: Reduced Droprates for Heroic Mounts
2012/08/06 at 12:48 PM
is hard to get and so is
. Unsurprisingly, it looks like
Smoldering Egg of Millagazor
will be getting reduced drop rates too next expansion, as blue posts clarified today. It would be trivial to get guaranteed mounts from heroic encounters an expansion later.
Smoldering Egg of Millagazor
are easier to get than their Wrath counterparts were.
Smoldering Egg of Millagazor
drops on normal-mode, heroic mounts are available on 10s difficulty this expansion, and multiple
on 25s means everyone in the raid gets them faster.
Blizzard has already clarified upcoming achievements like
Cutting Edge: Grand Empress Shek'zeer
will only be available in their current tier, so it looks like they still want some heroic rewards to remain time-sensitive, not something to overgear and farm an expansion later.
If these mounts do become much harder to get, at least
Corrupted Egg of Millagazor
Reins of the Twilight Harbinger
from meta achievements have the same models.
Will the mounts be an 1% drop ish in MoP? Or do they stay as current 100%?
