    Your melee attacks have a chance to grant Shadows of the Destroyer, increasing your Agility by 17, stacking up to 50 times. Each application past 30 grants an increasing chance to trigger Fury of the Destroyer. When triggered, this consumes all applications of Shadows of the Destroyer, immediately granting 5 combo points and cause your finishing moves to generate 5 combo points.

    Congratulations Nerya for obtaining our first pair of legendary daggers, soon he will be able to outdps Kwao.

    Certainly with the kills of Warmaster and Hagara, I resisted the urge to point out how easy the 25 man heroic encounters were compared to the 10 man versions. Which really sucks condsidering the loot per person is higher, you get more volor points (up until the stupidly low cap). (let alone the fact you likely have all debuff and buff slots covered, more than one res as well as the luxery of knowing that one death on a 25 man encounter likely isn't enough to fail an encounter). Each week we have one chance for one kind of tier token to drop compared to three, or a boss dropping shared loot rather than something from their own loot table. With regards to the legendary compared to Conviction a 25 man guild on Arathor with similar progression.

    Both guilds had a rogue start the chain on November 30th, 2011:
    - Braan in Conviction got his legendaries on January 31st after 9 weeks
    - Nerya in Maligned got his legendaries on March 21st after 16 weeks

    Hopefully Mists of Pandaria will address this, although for the future of 10 man guilds I hope 25 and 10 man instances continue to share a lockout.
    Or else I will literally do nothing about it in protest.

    25 man raiding is not more per person. You get 1 piece of loot per group, 2 pieces in 10 man, 5 pieces in 25 man. The same chance of getting loot. The 'perk' of 25 man raiding, is the more VP from bosses so you don't need to do a heroic every week to cap.

    Encounters can be easier on 25 man, I hope they fix this in Panda's though.

    Well tbh some of the 25man encouters are harder than 10man like zon, unsleeping, ultraxion

    I know, I said 'can' be easier :) It depends on the fight

    10 men do suffer from loot issues compared to 25 men.
    Some items will drop far more often than others even if they have the same chance to drop. That's because random number generators need a high amount of tries to get an even distribution.
    Also 10 men raids don't have 1/5 of the tanks or 1/5 of the healers a 25 men raid does, heck we don't even have 1/5th of the warlocks a 25 men raid does.

    Perhaps the amount of loot betwene 10 and 25 is fair (I think it used to be unbalanced) but I stand by the rest.

    Healers that did 25man ultrax would like a word about that I bet. prenerfs, 10man kills it on min5, 25man kills it on min6.
