So, so awesome. IGN lists November 13 as a release date. I am so stoked about this one that I can hardly believe it. I have loved the Fire Pro series ever since importing X Premium for the SNES in 1995 or thereabouts. Haven't played one since Fire Pro D for the Dreamcast, and I gave up because I got tired of digging through fan translations of the menu screen. This is gonna be GREAT.
Depends on the group. I'm 11/12 heroic 25man on my main, and we're still working on LK. We've never kicked someone from the raid for the wrong talent build, but our class leads will work with people for it.
