Is there an Emmerald type gear comparison guide?
Just simple list of the top 5/10 items for each slot for both feral specs would make gear balancing and selection so much easier.
I have seen this question raised a number of times across these forums, and to date have not been able to find anything of value.
FBN is awesome beyond belief, however I neither have the time, nor the ability to compile and run a sim for every item combination out there.
As you should be aware, best-in-slot lists change depending on your gear. Nightcrolwer has posted several links to cat gear rankings depending on your gear level - check his 1st post in the FBN thread. But I'd strongly advise to use Rawr or other tools instead of those lists.
Probably has been asked before at some point, but has someone investigates the details of cooldown stacking? I have AP, IV and Talisman of Resurgence available to me and they all have different cooldowns. Is it advisable to stack them all together or use them each when they become available? This is assuming no moments where the boss takes extra damage like Icehowl after crashing into the wall.
Ty for finally making this public, Gorgonnash-US has been doing this since release pretty much (5 years now? also simply called GKP on our server) and it's been quite tiring having to explain the concept to every new xfer lol.
thankyou, is there anyway to get around the partial resists?
Spell penetration is effective on Sapphiron (frost resistance, no one cares anymore) and possibly on Koralon trash (fire, no one cares to start with). Even Ghostcrawler recently said that spell penetration is a pure PvP stat (even going into Cataclysm):
Over time you will surely persuade more of those that are attracted and hopefully discourage those who wish to oppose.
Anyone with good/funny stories in which GDKP doubters receive their comeuppance? I was lucky in not having anyone mock my initial GDKP-run announcement on the server forum, and in only having one or two minor cases of Trade-channel morons mocking the idea in chat, but that's of course not the case for many other pioneers. Having done a lot of reading of GDKP-related posts on the Blizzard forums before and after conducting my first one, I have repeatedly seen the following pattern:
A. "What do you think about GDKP? This Elitistjerks thread says . . ."
B. "The raid leader will steal the gold! It's wrong to sell loot! It'll encourage gold buying!"
C. "Baddies will get loot! Only rich players will be able to join! This server is too backward for it to work!"
D. "I don't know, but I'll try it."
E. "Me too."
A. "GDKP run at ________ at ____ pm."
D. "Wow! We killed Anub and I made a profit despite buying an item! Sign me up for next week!"
E. "I went broke buying that trinket, but it was worth it. Sign me up for next week!"
F. "Nothing good for me dropped, but everyone stayed despite wiping on Anub twice. Sign me up for next week!"
G. "My guildmates told me about GDKP. Sign me up for next week!"
H. "I'll bring twice as much gold as the last time. Sign me up for next week!"
Etc., etc. The funny thing is that C. and D., like roaches that flee once the kitchen light turns on, never reappear once a single successful GDKP run occurs; I think I saw exactly one thread in which skeptics acknowledged that their concerns had been misplaced. Would that we had more honesty and forthrightness everywhere in life, not just in Azeroth!
(That said, we should also hear about cases in which the skeptics are for whatever reason proven right so the rest of us can avoid those situations, whether on our first or fifteenth GDKP run.)

Reason: We also want to hear bad stories, too
