I really didn't expect to be writing this. Like others, I was left a bit nonplussed at the seeming ease of early raiding content in Wrath, but the more I thought about it, the more it seemed like an interesting intersection of prudence, circumstances, and quite possibly some residual discomfort on...

Don't even think about using Mana Oils or Wizard Oils (or stones) as they will not work on items over level 70. Pro tip:...
