  1. Dodge ring wasn’t a thing until dodge rating was introduced; which was not in vanilla. Buy yes they were a thing in NYC because there was no level restriction which meant 19s could use dodge rating items which had a much larger 1:1 benefit. In fact they had to change it because the rating on the arena trinket would give like 15% chance to dodge- thus making people farm two arena trinkets to stack the dodge.

  2. Just gonna say it unfortunate that the interview didn’t get into the crazy stuff twinks would do to get the BiS stuff like ghost rep grinding and reserving Nax enhants.
