A mage solo'd the Military Wing of Heroic Naxxramas.

No exploiting, just a ton of skill and clever use of game mechanics, he kinda explains how he does it via text in the video. You can bet something will be changed to prevent this from being possible, but still very awesome.

Everything is a game mechanic (by definition) until Blizzard gets annoyed by it and calls it an exploit.

To me, an exploit is using an unintended bug to benefit yourself somehow. There are no bugs involved in this, this person was just really smart in using that Bone Armor with a talent in the Arcane tree.

/agree with Akuma, and that mage is really cool. Spellsteal has been OP before, I think.

You misunderstand.

In my WoW-view, everything that they let go in a patch is intended until they remove it from the game or change it. I'm not Neo in the Matrix. I HAVE to follow the coded rules exactly. If it's in the game, it is intended unless they post some sort of message IN-GAME to not do a certain thing. I rarely ever visit their forums anymore, so I don't keep up with what's a bug or an exploit.

If it works (whether they intended it that way or not), it IS intended.
