comment Why would spending money on a tile lower my score?
Related: How is score calculated in Civilization 5? Based on what they found in that question, I don't actually see how this is possible, and should actually have been the reverse. I wonder if there's something else going on.

comment How do I tank as a paladin?
I'm sad you're already 78, because my best advice would be to learn to tank by starting with lower level dungeons, where mistakes are more forgiving.

comment What are the advantages of being behind the enemy while attacking as a rogue?
@Raven but if those mechanics have not changed since then, its still accurate. Either way, those patch notes are not helpful, and what we need is someone who has recently let a mob hit them a lot and compared the combat text/logs with block chance. I'm sad the old forums are down specifically because I'm sure I could have found what we need there. So, we're out of luck till we find such a test or break down and do it ourselves.

comment What are the advantages of being behind the enemy while attacking as a rogue?
@Raven I looked at "official patch notes" as reproduced by Wowpedia, and that point is not clear. It says more or less what the wowpedia article said: "Block: All creatures will now report a Block on attacks from the front, reducing damage caused instead of converting the attack into a 'Miss.'" I would check the old forum archives for a tested answer, if they had not recently been taken offline.

"cause the healers watching your health bar undue stress!" I can personally attest to this. For the (real world) health of all your holy cloth wearing friends, please attack from behind.

comment How do I get Tome of Polymorph: Turtle since Cataclysm?
You're right, today I probably won't get a useful answer. I keep forgetting that Cataclysm itself isn't actually out yet, because the world has changed, and I'm playing with low level characters.

comment How does road maintenance work?
@Martin No, that square is not a city, but a cottage that does not have a road in it. (Cities can't be directly next to unowned land. They take over every square immediately around them when placed) However, your other points are worth investigating. I'd love to see an example where you can't remove a road that you appear to own.

Exhibit #2 from my post directly contradicts you. Being connected to a city or not seems to make no difference.
