It's worth killing the firebomber at least once, because there aren't many warforged titans to collect for the monster manual's hunter deeds - just do a rerun on casual if necessary.

I haven't seen the elixir of discovery yet, so the fact it's a time-limited buff rather than being a one-off like a chest blessing is news to me & makes it a lot more attractive to use on a highbie for running heroic quests on elite to get some nice TR gear.

I hadn't thought about using globe of invulnerability in running with the devils to deal with their searing light attacks, that's going to make life a lot easier! Presumably it could extend to a decent amount of things on reaper too; now the problem is making sure the party is willing to go a little slower to actually benefit from it.

I haven't been running epics much recently since I've been busy with a couple of TRs but from what I've played, the changes to melee power in the destinies is certainly a very noticeable boost, so I'm definitely going to be making more use of shadowdancer on a couple of my characters. It also means there's an even more significant power jump once you hit level 20 if you already have destiny levels vs. not having any. As a bonus though, it means GMoF will be a lot less painful to level for non-centered melees since you'll at least get that melee power even if you still can't use a number of the cooler abilities.
