Would've been way more amazing had the black version been built next to the Taj.

There already is black version, sort off. I think it's the tomb of Akbar in Fathepur Sikri.

Naw, Akbar's tomb isn't in Fatepur Sikri...it's in Agra proper

and it's beautiful, but not black

black taj is a myth
Shah Jahan was going to make the Moonlight Garden across the river, the black stone found there were discolored white stones that turned into black

That's true...the black Taj is a myth and was supposed to be gardens.

The authorites have landscaped this area but needs to be done better and give it proper access for more of a overall Taj experience in my opinion.

Damn. The guy giving me a tour of the Taj lied to me.

I also can't promise they are final wow gold because it's still the sort of thing we're wrestling with, and I don't want to disappoint anyone if it doesn't work out or we change our minds. Okay, massive caveats wow gold out of the way. We'd like to do something else with Kings. I don't know that a core ability is the answer, but wow gold burying it deep in Prot wowpower leveling , when Prot warriors would just as soon play with BoSanc, doesn't feel great either wow gold.We'd like to mess around with the top 2 tiers of all 3 trees, still encouraging you to cross-spec a little, but making that initial bite into the upper tier more tasty instead of just an icky appetizer to get the what you really want down deeper.I think Beacon of Light is starting to feel pretty good.

e 3 talent points for that stacks up to 3 times so 9% at 3 stacks. TIt may be a little OP right now,buy wow gold but I think we can get it in a good place. I'm sorry, but I don't know if you have the version I'm talking about or not.We'd like to get Vengeance back to 3 stacks, because that just feels more fun than 2. I can almost assure wow gold you that it won't be at 15% total damage -- that is hugely generous for 5 talent points, and would normally be budgeted at more like 15 talent points. If I had to guess,buy wow gold it will end up at something likhat is still over-inflated for 3 talent points. I understand wow gold that your dps used to depend on Vengeance. We'll just have to buff it in other ways. Death Knights will get the exact same treatment, whatever it ends up being.
