Raid Guild Leader's Perspective on BC
In this thread, Tigole responds to comments by players about the difficulty of raids in The Burning Crusade thus far, that Magtheridon and Gruul are both being looked at for re-tuning, as well as responding to concerns about the overwhelming need to use consumables in new content.
I don't really agree with points 5 and 6 but I do feel like your previous points all had merit. Hopefully, the changes I mentioned will alleviate some of your worries.
Consortium payment = when ??
In this thread, Nethaera tries to direct players to a CS thread dealing with the currently missing recurring payments by the Consortium in Nagrand.
We have a query in on this right now to find out more on the situation. You can follow the progress by watching this thread in Customer Service- http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=79820522&pageNo=1&sid=1#2
Guide to getting Arena Epics
In this thread, Drysc comments that the developers are keeping a close eye on the point gain rate for 2vs2 and 3vs3 teams.
At this moment we're happy with the amount of time required for a 5v5 team to obtain the five piece set and weapon/s while at the baseline rating, which is somewhere around 8 months. If you plan to only keep a baseline rating then you're going to get some very nice rewards, but the time investment could be said to be less than ideal. Keep in mind that at the beginning of a new season (every three months) new rewards may also be made available depending on PvE itemization, so obtaining items quickly is obviously advantageous. As mentioned though we're watching the current point reduction for the smaller teams closely and if deemed necessary they could be adjusted.

Tinfoil Hat Time(why blizz isn't fixing AM)
In this thread, Tseric explains the reasons why it's so difficult to fix Arcane Missles and Blink.
The biggest problem with resolving these bugs has been recreating the variable of network latency, which affects these spells more than other types.

Itemization Hotfix - 3/2/2007
In this thread, Tseric informs priests that a hotfix is being applied to Head slot Arena rewards for their class.
Gladiator's Satin Hood and Gladiator's Satin Mantle have been found to be granting only +Healing rather than the intended +Damage and Healing on the PTR. We are correcting this with a hot fix, however the tooltip will not reflect this until an upcoming client patch. For the time being, we will be removing the items from the vendor, so as to minimize any confusion. They will be reinstated when the tooltip issue is corrected.
Did Ice Lance or Frost Nova get nerfed?
In this thread, Tseric explains the reason for the change to Frost Nova that is currently on the PTR's.
The change affects Frost Nova. Frozen targets were never intended to be frozen after a critical. However, the usage of Ice Lance made it very noticable that being frozen was persisting through being crit, whereas normal damage had a chance to break the state. By insuring that a crit will break the frozen state, back to back crits from Ice Lance won't be occurring and such spikes in damage disappear.

Windfury change coming for Dual Wielding Shaman
In this thread, Tseric explains that a change to fix an unintended use of multiple ranks of Windfury is being applied next patch.
While I may be sorry to say as much, there you have it.
Later in the thread he adds:
The down-ranking and circumvention of the full 3 second cooldown was something causing extra DPS, as you gain more procs overall in the same time-frame.
Why do we need CC?
In this thread, Tseric shares his thoughts on the question.
+6MP5 on chest does not seem to work
In this thread, Tseric lets players know there's a known issue with mana per 5 second enchants being applied while one of your items has the same MP5 value.
Some of the specific bonuses are not stacking, such as +6/5 secs not stacking with other +6/5 secs.
He goes on to add:
There are different cases, but most of them appear to be based around having say, 7/secs on a chest piece, then enchanting with 7/sec. The same type of stat buff won't stack. So, the middle example is most accurate, where a piece already has one quantity of mana/5 and that same quantity is being reapplied through an enchant, like from Glyph of Renewal.
In this thread, Tseric comments on the request for a "Shaman review."
That, and petitions are against the forum guidelines.
He then adds:
When I last commented on any kind of 'line-up' for dev attention, Warriors and Shaman were under consideration or at least, the devs thought they had issues that merited attention. I don't believe that sentiment has changed, yet.
Paladin Forum Information
What exactly is our role?
In this thread, Tseric tries to convey the intended role of Paladins to clear up confusion.
As far as tanking and healing, the Paladin has been given plenty of tools for healing and threat gain/management.
Warlock Forum Information
What's the deal with my Imp?
In this thread, reported on a previous Blue Watch, Tseric replies with updated information, letting players know the Imp has had its spell damage coefficients restored.
edit - the Imp's casting time is inhibited by particular AI. Player spells or cast times of 1 second are not the issue at hand.
