What does that skill give now after TBC. I heard it gives a bigger chance to hit mobs with ?? lvl. Is it true?

It now just increases your crit rate on mobs higher than your level by 0.1% per weapon skill point (skill point at lvl 70, not as itemisation) so basically nerfed beyond all belief :/

Yes, they decided that it was too powerful and proceeded to over-nerf it as per usual Blizzard tactics.

Beyond the 0.1% crit pr. weapon skill point for 71+ mobs, you still get the minor bonus of +0.04% crit/hit/etc. that you always did for all level mobs/PCs.

So, Weapon Expertise actually grants you 1.4% crit and 0.4% hit on 71+ mobs, which while somewhat subpar, is still better than most alternatives in combat tree beyond the must-haves, for pure PvE DPS. Remember that a popular talent like Malice gives you 1% crit pr. point, so pr. point Weapon Expertise is relatively close when making a combat raiding build.

Still, Blizzard promised that they would make it the best pr. point stat for raiding, and unless we're missing something vital, they're either lying or planning to improve it. Then again, they also promised to fix our stealth animations a couple of patches ago, and it's not like they're as reliable as in the pre-WoW days.

What's wrong with our stealth animations?

(Honestly I don't know...) :)

Well, only some races were changed just before TBC launch.

Can't quite remember why they did it, something to do with syncing animations or whatever. Undeads were among those affected, and we now look like someone ignited our ass and we're looking for something to put it out. It looks particularly bad when we sprint during stealth.

Think Orcs or Trolls were also affected.

They promised to fix it a few patches ago, but it was removed from patch notes and we've heard nothing since.

They also managed to mess up Undead male head models for certain head armor pieces like Nightslayer and Bloodfang. That was long ago, and we've had to suffer through looking like retarded gorillas ever since. Something to do with the Undead male model that has a tongue hanging where his jaw should be. Blizzard "fixed" it by stretching the helmet model to hide it.

In short: WHINE

Trolls were not affected by the stealth animation change, or at lease i didn't notice it.

And don't whine about 2 helmets being fucked up on undead, trolls helmets have always been fucked.

The model is messed up, so many helmets were affected.

You could put a beach summer sunset on a troll's head, and you'd still be ugly as sin. Working as intended ;)

Trolls are not ugly, they're just butch.
Scourge are ugly (rotting flesh and hideously bad breath anyone?)
Night Elves are camp (males) or OTT sexy (females)
Orcs are... well, same as Trolls really, butch.
Blood Elves are (again) camp (males) or OTT sexy (females)
Tauren are bovine (no reference to milk please)
Humans are... boring
Gnomes are... small (very)
Dreynayee have a name that everyone spells wrong - and they're blue ffs...
