Dear corpsified bundles of beautifully-armored joy (but more particularly those who tank Azjol Nerub while wearing Expedition Bracers of the Bandit), We had a little bit of controversy in the first installment, so I'm just going to state this as baldly as possible; if you hated what I wrote last t...

By way of Blessing of Kings (why are all the good blogs about paladins?), here's a nifty macro to tell you if you have enough avoidance, as a paladin tank. How much is "enough"?

We already reported about a few of the new pets to be found, including a cool purple tallstrider, but there's at least one more out th...
