lazymangaka asked:

Did Blizzard bring back randomized weather on Pandaria? I was sitting in the Dread Wastes today, and I happened to glance up and notice that it had started raining where it wasn't a moment before.

Yes, weather is back and better than ever in Pandaria. It was cloudy and gloomy in Valley of the Four Winds last night. Wasn't even raining, just overcast.

mattysparkles asked:

Is there any sort of JP or VP dump this expansion? I've bought all the upgrades from JP that I need and took care of heirlooms a long time ago. So what do I do with them now?

Not yet, not really. I assume one will be added in 5.1; JP is next to worthless at this point.

PatrickHamiltoPrentiss asked:

So, I don't actually have MoP, yet. (For shame, I know.) I hope be able to get it soon, but in case I don't get it before Patch 5.1, will I be missing out? Like will I be screwed when it comes to trying to do quests in Krasarang or whatever and it's like NOPE TIME FOR WAR. I guess what I'm asking is if there are going to be radical changes, how will they effect leveling and such?

The patch 5.1 blog post stated that players who have already quested through Pandaria would have access to the new stuff, so I'm assuming that a newly-85 character wouldn't.

lucho_pinto asked:

I finally dinged 90 last night, and right after learning the ability to fly I went to visit Wrathion. He gave me this speech in which...


... he basically shows you Azeroth being attacked by "green fire meteors" and being destroyed, and they he says that the war must end for us to be able to stop this.

Has this been tackled on a KYL article? If not, what is your take on this? I find this extremely interesting. The green fire is usually used to represent the Burning Legion, so he might be implying they're coming. That's not a surprise, since... well, Sargeras. But the other part is fascinating. He's basically saying that in the future, everything will be over unless we join forces. A possible faction-less future?

It's just what Velen has been saying all along -- that Azeroth will be the staging ground for a war between Darkness and Light, and soon. Wrathion knows what's up. I don't think it necessarily means a factionless future, but it does mean this war is gonna put a wrench into the works.

thedangerfox asked:

Over the course of three days, I have looted two random world drop epics while out doing various quests. Did they increase the drop rate on world epics, or was I just massively lucky? Additionally, both items that dropped for me were mail, and I was on my shaman at the time. If they increased the drop rate on epics, did they also change it so you have a higher chance of getting equipment your class could actually use?

The most likely answer is you got lucky. Really lucky, actually!
