On a whale!

Ron2 asked:

I got an Elixir of Ancient Knowledge (the one that boosts experience gains by 300%) from the Archerius of Flame. If you've ever used one, or have thought about how you would use it when you eventually get one, how did you decide when and on whom? I have a level 72 shaman who seems like he'd be an ideal candidate, but I think I might save it for a rogue or hunter, somebody who can't already level quickly by chain-healing dungeons.

Personally, I'd use it on a DPS in the 80+ range. Cataclysm is inevitably where my leveling momentum peters out. Just done it a few too many times.

Geekboydotca asked:

Does Hearthstone need more cards? I adore CCGs in general, I love Hearthstone and I it has great gobs of potential ... but there is a creeping sameness to decks that is a bit off-putting. Over the past 2 days at least 80% of my matches have been against the "Doctor Draw" priest deck. Is this just part of a cycle, and it will swing away when people start running priest-killer decks? Or is there not enough variety in the cards right now and this is an inevitable result?

TCG/CCG metas are ever-shifting, due largely to the fact that new cards are constantly being introduced and old ones cycled out. Make no mistake: Hearthstone will have expansions and the metagame will change, likely so fast you'll get whiplash.

SallyBowls asked:

I think Blizzard is missing out with pures - why not have a very high-APM, "high-skill", many spell spec and a spec the opposite of that to appeal to different tastes. Two or three middle-of-the-road specs is redundant and IMO a waste.

Not to put too fine a point on it, but I don't want to be in an LFR with a bunch of people playing a "high-skill" class.

wowgrl asked:

You know that plateau above Mulgore where the critters are all armed? When exactly did that appear? I thought it was post Cataclysm. Others have told me it was there in Vanilla. Just curious.

It was added in Cataclysm. I believe that particular area wasn't accessible prior to that expansion.
