comment Where can I find dungeons in WoW?
Dungeons have suggested levels for groups of 5. If you want to go in with just 3, you'll want to be a higher level than the suggested levels, but then the gear and experience you get won't be as good. You'll get the best experience playing with a full group.

comment What should I know when playing WoW for the first time?
1) Asking for money is a quick way to get people to not like you. 2) Two great ways to make money are selling things on the Auction house, and selling Grey items to vendors, which you specifically recommend not doing. > Better advice to make money is to buy big bags ASAP, pick up everything, and vendor everything Grey without thinking. (Or, you know, look at each item an see if its an upgrade, cause Greys often are for low level characters.)

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.
