what does fake stats mean? and id rather have 74 sp at all times over a 2k hand rocket every 2 minutes =/


Permanently attaches a hand-mounted pyro rocket launcher to your gloves, allowing a skilled engineer to deal 1654 to 2020 Fire damage to an enemy at long range. The rocket can only be fired once every 45 sec.


Even for PvE Engineering is better (however you'd be using the haste enchant there).

1. I wouldn't even get half the mats on my server for 600g.
2. I wouldn't find 8 tailors on my server who craft the clothes for free, actually I would probably find none.
3. No matter how much you farm yourself, the robe's still worth a few thousand gold.

Personally I paid around 2k gold + 8 orbs which were worth 1k gold each back then.
Currently the total cost on my server if you buy everything would be around:
Spellweave x 8: 160G x 8
Ebonweave x 8: 110G x 8
Dream Shard x 8: 20G x 8
Runed Orb x 8: 700G x 8
Crafting Fee: 100G
Total: 8020G


it cost me 5800 exackly :o

Just reinstall the game.


I did... three times. I did everything the WoW forums suggest, but the last patch just blew up the latency. There are also a few posts on the Technical forums (none with blue posts yet) about people having the same issues. I'm inclined to think it's a port, but the tech department at my campus said ports are all open and functional. ><;;;

Honestly, if you're going to bust out 8k for a chest-piece that will be outdated, go all out and just buy a mechano-hog instead. Lasts forever, way cooler of a gift. It's not Merlin's Robe is going to add a million stats to make you a whole lot better.

Or, if you have 8k and you feel like getting a BiS piece of PvE gear that will remain BiS in PvE/PvP for at least 1-2 months, you should pass over foolish advice like this. I'd go for it if I really wanted to Min/Max my character, but I have a robe that is almost as good.

Yet again, Pownmeister gives advice that can only be categorized as useless and pointless. Given his general ignorance that is equally expressed throughout all his posts, I am not surprised. One has to wonder, why does he still post here?

I think i'm with pownmeister... it's better, but i'm not sure about 8k. I'd rather spend that type of money on reign of the dead that doesn't really have any trade offs; merlins robe you give up like 1000 health and 80 resil.
