Soloing in a 6.0 world

Whilst people have always soloed older raids – I’ve farmed a number of rare drop raid mounts already – one of the concerns with the item squish Warlords brought in was how easy it would be to solo older content.

Blizzard did say they’d address this – they didn’t want to stop people soloing old raids for transmog, mounts, older legendaryies.

So how successful have they been?

Well, from the number of times Rhonin keeps on going about our lives being worth living in Dalaran – he’s yelling it almost non-stop – I think a lot of people are running older raids!

… apparently there is a queue of people waiting for Rhonin to yell about the defiance of our very makers before they can send reply code alpha

Update: Enchants in 6.0.2 for shadow priests

In Enchants in 6.0.2 for shadow priests I looked at the enchants from previous expansions which ended up being more powerful than Pandaria enchants after the squish of 6.0.2

In that post I did note that it felt wrong that this could be done and that I’d expect these to be fixed.

In build 19041 – which is about to go to the beta and PTR – has nerfs to pretty much all of the enchants I listed on that post. It was fun whilst it lasted, but it couldn’t last forever.

… that said I’ve found more BoP enchants which drop from raids for my enchanter to farm up. Even if they’re nerfed, I’m still a completionist!

See the WoWHead news post for full details of the changes.

Enchants in 6.0.2 for shadow priests

UPDATE: please see an update post for updated info on this – come build 19041 the info below will not be valid

This blog post was inspired by @Perculia, Warlady of data at WoWHead, tweeting on how legacy enchants are looking to be very good for her rogue in 6.0.2

There are also changes thanks to stat priority changes – the following is written for Shadow priests who now have a priority of Multistrike > Int > Crit > Versatility > Haste > Mastery – see this thread on How2Priest for more details.

Time is Money friend!

You may have noticed from my Waiting for Warlords posts that I’m a mount collecter.

And I’m currently missing two of the Recruit a friend mounts…

… and what’s with that title?
