    I was going off what I had heard others say.

    On another note, Frost mage is a lot better than people think. I out DPS fire mages all the time on bosses. To take into account though, I must play Frost very well and I may have run into all "not so good" Fire mages. People complain Frost sucks on trash, I beg to differ. I pick the highest health not main focus target and Frost bomb it and change target as necessary. Single target and being a Troll is so badass too. Also, Frost mage gets a reputation buff so getting rep with the 6 factions is a little bit faster too. I'm 835 and the more haste I get the better it'll get.

    My Ele shaman is falling further and further behind the DPS curve. I'm at 825 now and I'm evening out on boss DPS and falling wayyyyy behind on trash unless there are 5+ mobs. Even then I barely pull even with the 2nd/3rd DPS.

    Question regarding multiple accounts on one battle.net account.
    I'm thinking of checking out Legion but shelling out Legion price + 3 month time card feels like a little too much for me if I might end up getting bored fast. However I can buy the Battlechest with 30 days of gameplay quite cheap, so I was wondering if I can register that normally to my battle.net account? I know I won't be able to use my character from the other account, but I don't really care, last time I played it seriously was in WoTLK.

    Upgrade one account to Legion and play on that one. You cannot use the Battle Chest for a free month as it's just considered buying the base level game (World of Warcraft) and the first 2 expansions (BC, WoLK). They may have added the other pre-Legion expansions to that but I can't say for sure.

    I recommend just upgrading to Legion and subbing for a month. You can't get gametime from anything but time cards, normal sub free, or ingame currency.

    I should have specified. There's a promo here for buying Warcraft movie on DVD(lol), where you get Battlechest + 30days of time, HotS and Heartstone stuff and it's pretty cheap, definitely costs less than buying everything separately. However it does say it's '30 days for new players' so I'm not sure how to understand that.

    Granted, this doesn't come out until 17th October so I'd have to wait.

    It's a Battle Chest. You can only use it on a first time account to get a free month. It's a gambit to get new people into the game. If you want to start a new account and upgrade it to Legion, go for it. You'll get a boost to 100 from buying Legion anyway.

    some of the story lines in surumar dont have map-visible markers; you need to go find the npcs to start the chains.

    hit ilvl 841 today. ran a mythic with my guild's raid group dps and absolutely crushed them, except for our broken ass unholy dk. one fight in particular, did 47% of the damage, and i have the lowest ilvl of all the dps that were present.

    honestly, with a bad group, you're not clearing a single boss. you need to be geared, AND know what's going on.

    The difficulty varies -- mythic Darkheart Thicket is one of the easiest to try. Some are really punishing if you're going in with poor dps or a bad tank. I had one mythic VH where I had a DH tank that would get 2-shot by trash at some points. You are also punished much harder for failing mechanics on bosses and for not interrupting abilities. If you haven't already, I would advise unlocking your 3rd relic slot since that's an extra 25-30 ilvl to your weapon.

    I'm speaking from the standpoint of resto druid healing, but as long as I'm fairly liberal with using my healing cooldowns and nobody is doing anything drastically wrong, mythics are not that much worse than heroics. You just have to accept that if other people in your group fail to stand in the bad, they're probably going to die and you won't be able to compensate for their mistakes like you can in heroics.

    Of course, starting next week when 850+ gear is unlocked and people start outgearing them, mythics will turn faceroll pretty fast, so it's all relative.

    They feel really quick to overgear, at i800-810 a few of them were pretty challenging in terms of healing/damage requirements and the mechanics had to be handled near perfectly, but now that everyone is walking around in i840+ they're pretty much heroics. Last week I even started filling 1-2 DPS slots with fresh/undergeared 110s to help people gear up.

    Dungeon difficulty is definitely all over the place, I'm echoing Darkheart Thicket as the first one you should attempt because it's one of the easiest ones. I'm my experience Neltharion, Blackrook and Violet Hold are also pretty simple. The first bosses in Maw, Wardens and Eye aren't bad, but the final bosses are a pain if you're in a bad group or have a new healer. Halls of Valor has the retard check on the first and final bosses so I'd leave that one for last. That said, none of the mechanics are particularly complex, as long as you have enough gear not to get one shotted by a single mistake you should be able to get the hang of most bosses in a couple attempts.
