I'm cautiously optimistic

Too late for me but it'd be great to know that my former coworkers will have it better after everything is said and done. I know it's still unlikely that things will change significantly, but even small changes for the better can mean a lot. I'll be... —  read more

Raid started, one boss down

Jay away, who's next? I can easily see that new powerful class in next expansion: Working Class. That, and boss nerfs.
