Standard disclaimer: Leave your loathing of meta, World of Warcraft, or community diaries outside. If you think we should be playing your MMO instead, start a guild and write a recruitment diary. Don't leave a comment here and then get all hurtful when it isn't received with flowers and candy. This goes double for people coming in to attack guildies over other diaries or comments - STAY OUT! Link to your recruitment diary is OK though.
Standard advertisement: Wreck List is the Daily Kos World of Warcraft guild. We are Horde-side on the Garrosh server. To join, read this diary and visit the Guild web site to put in an application. Yes, you have to be Horde. No, you don't have to be hardcore - casuals, PvPers, and people that just want to hang out on guild chat are all welcome.
More below the fold:

Well, it's time to nerf paladins. (SPOILER: Nerf already happened)

From WoW Insider comes this story of a level 80 paladin soloing the level 90 Mogu'shan Vaults raid.

From what I understand, the player used level 80 BoEs from Pandaria to boost his secondary stats to ridiculous levels. Combined with Vengeance, this let him reach an attack power of something around two and a half million.

Apparently this also involved a bug with Shield of the Righteous, in case you're wondering why DKs aren't doing this. Sadly, Blizzard has since hotfixed Vengeance so it caps at max health to prevent another perfect storm of unintended consequences.

At least, until the next one comes along.

Here's the raiding report for Team Kaels from Ninotchka:

I’m happy to report that Team Kaels had an excellent week since we’ve spoken last. We didn’t manage to defeat the next boss in progression, Mel’jarak, last Friday night, but we got together for a new lockout on Tuesday evening and blew through the first three encounters in the Heart of Fear to face him again. There was only half an hour left of our raiding time when we got back to ol’ Mel’, but we decided to try the encounter one or two time, to refresh our memory on the tactics we were going to use.

Boom. Down he goes, leaving us to face Ambershaper Un’sok next. Un'sok is supposed to be the hardest fight of the normal-difficulty level of this tier, because random people get transformed into giant blobs of yellow goo and have to figure out on the fly how to fight as a giant blob of yellow goo. It's only 4 new buttons to learn how to push, but you have to push those buttons at the right time or everyone dies horribly. We are scheduled to take our first crack at this tonight, wish us luck.

And here is our Tab Three Report from Mahuae:
Tab 3 report. Lovely purple plate pants still available!

Contender's Satin Cuffs, lvl 90 cloth
Helm of Elemental Binding, lvl 85 mail
Phantasmal Hammer, lvl 85 mace
Qu'nas' Apocryphal Legplates, lvl 87 plate

That's all I have for this week... for the Horde!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
