    I was a vocal opponent of forced emotes because of how they violate RP standards - you shouldn't be able to affect someone else's character without their permission. And for the fact that they were...

  13. Is the Might grace period over as of update 11.0?

    I didn't see any mention in the release notes. Is the +might gear on my mid-level warden still equivalent to +agi gear, or is the grace period over now in 11.0? Thanks for the help.
