I Have Discovered the Source of Forum Complaining in Mists!, Balkoth, Balkoth’s Word, 4/13/13.
This is an extremely fascinating article. The idea is that opinions on how much effort gear is worth varies drastically. Balkoth found that 32.7% of responders think you’d be crazy to kill 200 mogu for a BiS heroic ring. Next, 50% think you’d be crazy not to kill 500 mogu for the ring. At 1000, 41% think you’d be crazy not to go for the ring. Lastly, 13% think 5000+ mogu is reasonable. Blizzard can’t make everyone happy.

Know Your Lore, Tinfoil Hat Edition: What was the purpose of Uldaman?, Matthew Rossi, WoW Insider, 4/10/13.
Rossi guesses as to the purpose of Uldaman. I wonder if Blizzard actually thought that far ahead.

Jarre of Rank4HealingTouch provides some math to determine what’s faster – mounting or running.
Patch 5.3 PTR: Role Check in Battleground queues, Olivia Grace, WoW Insider, 4/15/13.
Here’s an interesting change. You’ll now have to pick your role when queuing for a battleground. From now on, the difference between the two teams’ number of healers can be no more than one. I wonder if I can just queue as DPS and then heal.
