Episode 15 of Blessing of Frost — how on earth did that happen? No guest this week, just Majik and Kurn chattering away about Halfus Wyrmbreaker, Valiona & Theralion and the Ascendant Council.
And we are proven wrong once again… Hours after recording the podcast, MMO-Champion updated the ZA/ZG loot list to include: Bracers of Hidden Purpose. The purpose of which, I imagine, is so that Kurn can upgrade from 316 blue bracers relatively easily…

Tips and tricks from helpful people on Twitter (follow them!):
@Hulrok: In Council trash, be sure you can tell which circles are bad and which are good.
@walkstweets: You can sneak up the middle of the room to avoid trash between Halfus and the Drakes. / I suppose more seriously: the phase shifter trash can be LoSed and aoed down (the two packs before Halfus). / Hand of Protection is great for the stacks on Halfus, Hand of Freedom yourself after getting the grounded buff to axe the slow.
@SturgarHawkwind: Do the Portal masters last, they create much wackiness. Also, on the faceless, split em up and ice trap preemptively.
@bippy1990: be liberal with mana on the dragons as mana tide can be dropped more than once xx / my guild like blood lust to be dropped on the first drake on halfus. From a resto shammy on EU – Saurfang xx
@TikariOfET: V&T – rogues should be feinting throughout the fight, redirecting between dragons, and using cloak for blackout/meteorite. / You should send someone you’re willing to sacrifice down the long stairs to eat the elementals.
@JoeEgo812: Parachute cloak, slow fall, HoP, charge abilities, etc all prevent fall damage from Gravity Crush.
