    Yep. server xfer and faction xfer is a huge chunk.

    It does suck though

    that kinda confused me. they say exclusively at retail stores, but Amazon is listed as one of the suppliers. :confused:

    in any event, good cheap way for a RAF mount. :thumbsup:

    oh yeah, I totally forget... if you have any progress in the Argent Tournament, that will be utterly reset/wiped with a race or faction change. stupidly annoying.

    I think they just mean that it's not available at the Blizzard store. At least that's how I read it.

    Thinking about doing this also. The RAF mount is a 2 seat flying one, right?

    The current RAF mount is the Obsidian Nightwing, which transforms you into a flying panther-type that allows you to take a passenger. So yeah, it can fly, and it'll take you and a passenger.

    Don't forget that you have to add a two-month subscription (preferably the $30 game card so you can get the reward instantly) to the RAF account for your main account to earn the RAF mount. Your main account also gets a one-month free for this, though.

    Was going to get a battle chest from Amazon today for $5. Blizzard says Amazon was participating in the $5 battlechest, yet Amazon is showing $19. I don't think so!

    It's actually showing as $9.99 to me (old box with only BC shown, but the same thing), but you're right, at that price don't get it there. Might as well go to Target/Gamestop/Bestbuy or any one of the local stores to get it for $5.

    So I've been researching, and with item upgrades coming up in the new patch, upgraded conquest beats unupgraded 489. I'm trying to crap my conquest and get some pieces.

    Finally got my warrior to 90. Spent the greater part of the weekend doing it. Time to start dailies I guess. Too bad doing them as prot is downright miserable.

    I have a 2h for Arms just no gear for it. Arms is just as slow when you have dodge and parry on all your gear :|

    I've taken to doing them in guild groups. Even taking my guilds other tank (Paladin) speeds things up considerably. At least Klaxxi can be done quickly. I just gather up 6-7 and hold them for the reaver enhancement to kill them. :D

    I spent some time leveling my new transfer this weekend, got him to 87. Ret paladins got a lot more interesting it seems like.

    Hit GL revered on my warlock, so now I can focus on AC dailies for the 28 slot bag recipe. Hit Tillers exalted on toon #3 this morning, I believe #4 will hit exalted today also. Going to just plant motes to use for extra imperial silk.

    Got a Galleon kill yesterday morning, saw he popped, took 25 minutes to assemble a group and we still pulled with 35, there was nobody to be found. The start of a horde raid showed up when he was at ~20% or so, but there wasn't enough to wipe us. I got gold/gold again (0/4 now), my wife got the 496 hat her first kill and got 496 boots this time, so she's 2 for 2.

    I keep hearing people suggest 5.1 could be this week or next.

    fingers crossed... my pally is 88, but I don't want to start any rep grinds until the 5.1 changes (+100% rep on all characters once one has reached revered).

    I've been leveling ret, but tbh I'm really not feeling it. being melee dps is just a giant pain in the ass. I keep dying :( playing an elemental shaman has spoiled me. I'm debating if maybe I should respec holy and learn to heal once I reach 90.

    Really I found leveling as melee much easier. My shaman is still 87 because I swapped to my warrior to tank for my guild. The warrior was way faster in my opinion. I agree however that in dungeons and group play being ranged really helps. At times when I DPSed on my way up I was getting lost in the particle effects and tanks who don't know how to stand still are frustrating but I understand because most fights require the tank to keep moving around.

    At least you're not a feral druid. :D

    solo'ing, I'd agree... but I find ranged dps to be loads easier in heroics/raids.

    I'm curious to try solo'ing old raids with my Pally, though. the BC raids that I've tried on my shaman have been pretty faceroll (outside of Chess in KZ and Voidreaver in TK) and shaman don't tend to be highly regarded for their solo'ing prowess.

    Instead of starting dailies why don't you level another char till 5.1 and the rep boost.

    that's probably what I'll do, except Tillers... I'm looking forward to having a 90 who can actually make use of spirits of harmony (my shaman just uses them to vendor for golden lotuses, with which to craft flasks that I sell for 3600g/stack)

    I hit 90 this weekend with my warrior. I leveled up as prot and was pretty easy. I've run a couple of heroics and a scenario. I've used most of my gold that I've made from quests to buy the heirloom gear, since I figured I'll be leveling most of the time. The extra 45% is nice.
