The In-Game Store

July 15, 2013 3 comments

If I’m understanding this right, with 5.4 Blizzard is bringing a version of the Blizzard store in-game. This definitely makes it more convenient to purchase items from the store without having to tab out. The question is, what would I buy?

Those of us who are altoholics are going to love the 100% XP boost. Those of us who must COLLECT ALL THE PETS will love the pet/mount store. But I’d be a little conservative in saying what I would buy until I know how much this stuff is actually going to cost. I mean I’ve already given Blizzard too much money in my two wow subscriptions, the constant shuttling of my alliance alts (which may be coming back to horde), how many bloody pets and mounts I’ve already bought from the store (that reminds me I must get the tree pet), and the $30 I’ll never see again from buying the game and all the expansions during the discount week for my kid brother’s birthday because Fedex sucks (Now I have to find a new present for him and Blizzard won’t get a new subscription out of it).

Anyway! Some things I’d love to see in the in-game store:

Extra Character Slots

I doubt this would happen, because Blizzard would lose money on the deal from those of us with a 2nd subscription to hold all these rassafriggin’ alts. But they could make more money with players that didn’t buy another subscription but need more slots anyway. The way many players get around not having to buy a 2nd account is just having alts on other servers. With extra slots, Blizzard would make money on the per slot fee, as well as the character transfer fees (provided that the alts are not on the same Virtual Realm).

Bind on Account Scrolls

Buy a scroll, make one of your soulbound items BOA. So when your main is done with an item, slap a BOA scroll on it and send it to your alt! This would make gearing alts much easier, and allow guilds more flexibility on raid fill-ins. We have the technology for this with heirlooms. Let’s do it!!

Rep Tabards

Bring them back! Aly doesn’t do dailies!

Guild Perks

We haven’t had any new guild perks this expansion. Maybe we can buy back the Have Group, Will Travel perk? Upgrade the Cash Flow perk?

Transmog/Cosmetic Items

This has already been mentioned, but worth repeating. Give RP’ers some more cosmetic items to have fun with. Give us some replica gear that we don’t have to grind Darkmoon tickets for, or maybe some transmog patterns that we can craft in-game…pretty clothes with no stats that help crafters level their professions.

Finally, and I might get rotten fruit thrown at me for this, but make everything (or almost everything) in the Blizzard store tradeable in game. This could wreak some havoc on the economy (but Virtual Realms will do that anyway), but it’s a legit way of “buying” gold without actually buying gold. Blizzard did this with the Guardian Cub, and it seemed to work out.


Holy 5.4 Druid Changes Batman!

June 12, 2013 1 comment

After reading the recent wave of 5.4 patch notes, I felt compelled to make a post about this, since I play a resto druid. And I just dinged my 2nd druid to 90 as well. I wanted the Double Agent achievement dammit. No, I’m not okay.

This post is going to be from the Tree point of view. Why? Because I haven’t played a kitty since Cata and I didn’t want to look like a derp making shit up… and boom makes me want to punch a squirrel. Don’t even get me started about tanking.

So let’s dive right into it, shall we?

Dream of Cenarius Redesign

Restoration: Causes Wrath to deal 20% more damage and heals a nearby friendly target for 100% of the damage done.

I’m not a disco priest (well I have 2 of those as well but that’s beside the point). I’m still not going to choose this talent over Nature’s Vigil. Especially with the NV buff!

Heart of the Wild Tweak

Heart of the Wild when activated, now also provides a 25% bonus to healing for Restoration Druids.

I would likely never shift out of healing to take on another role. Unless we’re up against an insane enrage timer and we need that oomph. Even then I probably won’t take this over NV. See above.

Nature’s Vigil Buff

Nature’s Vigil when activated, causes healing spells now trigger an additional heal on a nearby ally for 25% of the amount healed. This is in addition to the existing effect where it damages a nearby enemy target for 25% of the healing done.

This is still the go-to talent for trees. NV already provides a flat 10% healing increase in addition to doing some damage. Before, only damage would trigger the additional heal on a nearby ally. This is allowing our healing spells to do it as well. Yes please.

Soul of the Forest Buff

Soul of the Forest has been partially redesigned to make it more attractive to Balance, Guardian, and Restoration Druids.

For trees, this increases the haste bonus by 100%, up from 75%. This is still the weakest talent behind Incarnation and Force of Nature. I would consider this talent if I didn’t have the 5% haste buff in the raid. This would make me a very grumpy tree indeed. Incarnation and FON are just too powerful not to use either one of them.

Ysera’s Gift

Ysera’s Gift, a new talent healing the Druid for 5% of their maximum health every 5 seconds. If the Druid is at full health, it will heal the most injured friendly target nearby instead. This talent fills the spot vacated by Nature’s Swiftness.

Nature’s Swiftness is now a spell for all! No longer a talent. Yay! So this new spell, I can see it having its uses. It’s like a priest’s desperate prayer, only way better. The other two talents in this tier are Renewal (which is a carbon copy of Desperate Prayer, and only really useful for questing or for other specs) and Cenarion Ward. CW has its uses as well, so I can see it coming down to choosing between CW and YG. CW would be helpful for incoming tank damage (like Horridon’s enrage). Otherwise, YG looks like one of those nice cast-and-forget-it type spells that you don’t even have to think about. Add it to your bar/buttons and cast when your other shit’s on CD.


Genesis is a new Restoration spell learned at level 88. Genesis targets all party or raid members within 60 yards and accelerates the casting Druid’s Rejuvenation effects, causing them to heal and expire at 400% of the normal rate. Costs the same amount of mana to cast as Rejuvenation.

This is pretty sexy for some situations. I’m looking at Meg’s rampage, Tortos’s Quake and other situations of massive AOE damage. Blanket rejuv, cast Genesis and BAM. No more yelling at my screen “REJUV FASTER!” when my other CDs are on CD. I’m looking forward to playing around with this on the PTR.

Wild Mushroom Nerf

Wild Mushroom: Bloom is no longer capable of critical strikes, and accumulates overhealing done by Rejuvenation by 100%, down from 150%. Overhealing bonus no longer benefits from Naturalist or Mastery: Harmony.

WM buff in 5.3, we hardly knew ye. I loved you. I would have loved you forever. But then you went and broke my heart. And I’m sad. Did I mention that we only get one mushroom now? It does the same thing as three, supposedly. But I’m shaking my fist at you Blizzard. Show us the love then… be a big meanie. And with this nerf, comes the baffling glyph…..

Glyph of Efflorescence

New Glyph: Glyph of Efflorescence increases the healing done by Swiftmend by 20%, causes the Efflorescence healing effect to be triggered by Wild Mushroom instead of Swiftmend, and lasts as long as the Wild Mushroom is active.

So, let me get this straight. SM is buffed by 20% but doesn’t lay down the green circle of awesome. This would also mean that the treants from FON will also lose the effect. But this would also mean that the treants would get the 20% SM buff as well. But they only cast it on one target, then they go to HT.  The green circle of awesome then is triggered by planting a mushroom instead, and lasts up to 5 minutes (which is the current life of a mushroom if not bloomed). So players can just bounce in and out of the green circle. Like anyone will pay attention to that. Ha. So… hmmm… situational glyph at best. Biggest benefit will be when players are grouped up. Otherwise, why bother? I am so confused by this glyph I don’t even…


Glyph of Innervate now causes Innervate to give both the Druid and the target 60% of the normal effect of the spell if it’s cast on a target other than the Druid.

Didn’t we used to have this? Back in T11 Star and I used to swap innervates all the time. We got more mana back that way. And then Blizzard took it away and nerfed it to the ground. Thank  you for bringing it back!

Miscellaneous Updates

Mass Entanglement no longer has a limit on the number of targets that could be affected, up from 5. PVP druids across Azeroth thank you. Otherwise, who cares?

Swiftmend’s area-of-effect healing effect is now called Efflorescence. Uhhhhh……. da fuck were we calling it before?? I mean *I* called it “Green Circle of Awesome* but…. wasn’t this ALWAYS called Efflorescence? /headscratch.

And there you have it! Lotsa Druid changes on the horizon. This is all still in test, so Blizzard reserves the right to scrap any or all of this. And I’ll be playing on the PTR because… holy shit that’s a lot of changes.

It’s HERE!

September 25, 2012 5 comments

I felt like I was back in college. You remember the days, where you pulled all nighter’s to get that term paper started finished (yeah that’s it) or otherwise gave no regard to your circadian rhythm. Approximately 3.5 hours after launch, I woke up (and by “woke up” I mean i was startled awake by a major coughing fit), stretched, grabbed a cherry cola and fired up my fossilized laptop. The time is 3:40am and I have roughly 3 hours to play before I have to get ready for work.

At 3:40am PDT, there were roughly 12-15 guildies online. I couldn’t really tell because that crazy bug is back where it doesn’t display all guild members and it pretends the guild bank doesn’t exist. So in my pre-caffeinated half-asleep state, I get the quest to get onboard a boat at Bladefist Bay. What?  The same boat that took me to the underwater zone from hell? That’s what the quest says. So I fly out over Org, over to Bladefist bay and I see a boat. But there’s nobody there to talk to. The hell?

Me: /g So I’m on the boat where is the foo I’m supposed to talk to?

Cali: You don’t see a “?”

Me: Nope.

Cali: Are you in Azshara?

Me: The fuck am I supposed to be in Azshara for? The quest says Bladefist Bay

Cali: Go to your Azshara map you’ll see the ?

Me: Oh there it is! … the fuck?

Cali: Fly up to the boat in the sky

Me: OH! I’m supposed to take a Zep. Well.. gee that makes sense being horde and all… WHY THE FUCK DOES IT SAY BLADEFIST BAY??

Oh yeah, me without caffeine first thing in the morning in the middle of the fucking night isn’t a very pretty sight. I get all nerd-ragey, cuss like Gene an anonymous truck driver and type in more shouty capitals. I did say it was my deadly sin, didn’t I??

Anyway, technically the zeppelin was OVER bladefist bay. Quest descriptions need to be a little more specific. Just sayin’. Luckily my guildies without a life that had been playing for 3 hours already already wowhead-ed it and passed their infinite wisdom on to me. *yawwwwnnnnnnnnnnnnnn* (guzzles down some more soda)

So I’m on the zep! weee! After the cut scene and we make it over to Pandaria, I see YELLOW DOTS! ALL THE YELLOW DOTS! I must farm yellow dots!!!! Without thinking, I swan dive off the zeppelin. *splat* (oops)  As I run back to my corpse, another druid jacks the flower. Rawr. Oh, so I see a ?. OH SHIT, I’m supposed to turn it in ON THE ZEPPELIN. And I can’t fly! Ooh… yellow dot! I GOT ONE! Reluu points out there’s a red beam of light that can teleport me back to the zeppelin. *whew* crisis averted.

So after doing a bunch of quests and kitty-clawing 4-5 mobs at a time, we decide to try the 5-mans. Four MT-ers (Reluu, Yakk, Symoon and me) and a pug tank. Temple of the Jade Serpent is the first one that pops. It’s 4:45am. Never been in the place and I’m healing. Somehow I think this can’t be good. I yawned my way through it, wasn’t entirely sure what was going on but we made it look easy nonetheless. Got dungeon quests done, tank got gf aggro, so the 4 of us que’d again.

This time we got the Brewery. All I can say is… what the fuck did I just run through? I feel like I was dragged through Tim Burton’s version of Hello Kitty. No clue what the bloody hell was going on. I think I innervated myself once. I think Symoon stood in bad and died once. I think there was a mutant rabbit. I’m not entirely sure. I just… I don’t even….

In 3 hours, I got 51% of the way to level 86. I’m going to get home from work and Reluu half the guild will be level 87-88. Oh well.

The Ghosts of Expansions Past

August 31, 2012 4 comments

So Nos was the inspiration of this post. We have a thread going on in our forums about our Cataclysm memories.  I did write a little bit about this here but I’m going to expand on it here! I started playing this game shortly after TBC came out. And this sums up nicely my fondest memories….

The Burning Crusade

I remember when Yanni would come over to my apartment with his WoW machine and play while I was frittering away in another chat program.

I remember starting my first toon, a zombie warlock named Lunatyk. She ate brains. (she’s now a goblin named Inkky)

I remember getting to the barrens and Yanni asking me “what’s your spec?” To which I responded “what’s my wha?” To which he /facepalmed. Dude you need to tell me this shit!

I remember abandoning my warlock at level 24 and starting a hunter Alykki. And nobody told me about pet talents.

I remember my first guild <Dead Gnomes Float> where I met Mavros and Moonglum. Taki was the dictator and he was mean to me.

I remember when my melee AP was higher than my ranged AP. I got a chorus of “you’re doing it wrong” in gchat. But I couldn’t shoot the bad guys when they’re on my face! I had to beat them off with a stick! No, I didn’t know what pet aggro was.

I remember our first raid in Kara. In preparation Taki made me get the Beastlord dungeon set. But my Gladiator set was purple! Screw the blues! No, I didn’t know what hit rating was.

I remember rolling on every mail purple item. Shooting costed mana! Of course I needed int!

I remember rolling my first healer, Alykii my paladin.

I remember healing Kara and I died every time on Shade of Aran. No I didn’t move when flame wreath was cast. But the hunter next to me did. Every. Time.

I remember giggling uncontrollably every time I saw YOUR DAYS ARE NUMBERED FRUIT VENDOR!!! in Shatt.

I remember getting squished by the Fel Reaver. Twice.

I remember box clicking fails on Magtheridon. I was healing so it wasn’t me!

I remember 6 hour heroic Shadow Labs runs.

I remember when everyone was a blood elf.

I remember when one of my guildies got me into the WOTLK Beta!!


Wrath of the Lich King

I remember leveling my pally as holy from 70-80. Actually I remember leveling her as holy from 30-80.

I remember failing on Mexxna in Naxx because we had 3 priest healers who couldn’t dispel the poison off the tank.

I remember everyone rolling a Death Knight. Nobody was any good at it.

I remember heroics seemed like a faceroll

I remember Malygos making me cry.

I remember getting the Champion of the Frozen Wastes title. That was the pinnacle of my Wrath experience.

I remember inheriting Guild Leadership after a drama bomb exploded all over the place in <Blood Red Skies>

I remember not knowing how the fuck to lead a guild and most of my decisions came down to eenie meenie miney mo and “What Would Taki Do?”

I remember deciding to reform into the best guild ever!

I remember when the ICC 5 mans hit and I couldn’t heal Halls of Reflection.

I remember Giz tanking ICC and forgetting to turn on Righteous Fury every time. He killed Phaedara every time. “Yes, it is now an official raid. The mage is dead.”

I remember rogues didn’t exist so we face pulled traps the Masochistic way.

I remember wiping the raid with chicken nuggets.

I remember MT’s first Lich King kill, the first time we ever completed an end raid. Ever.

I remember MT’s first birthday right before Cata hit, we had a naked kara race. Rodin’s team won.



I remember when 4.0 hit and my healers suddenly never ran out of mana

I remember being really really bummed that I couldn’t get into the Cataclysm Beta after having played in the WOTLK Beta

I remember getting excited about the new Guild System – leveling the guild, perks, rep, etc and thought of how many ways this system could be improved

I remember healing my first heroic on my priest (who was then my main) and bursting into tears after 3 hours of heroic deadmines fail

I remember going emo trying to get geared in heroics because THIS SHIT’S TOO HARD!

I remember uninstalling WoW for 2 days because I couldn’t deal with it

I remember being told “priests are fail”

I remember telling everyone “priests are NOT fail! YOU FAIL!”

I remember thinking I was never ever going to finish a heroic dungeon because I just didn’t have the 3 hours a night to dedicate to getting frustrated and angry.

I remember our first Cataclysm raid as a guild. There was much rejoicing after we downed Magmaw.

I remember when 10k dps was uber.

I remember when Giz told me we needed a resto druid on Chimeron so I changed mains for the remainder of the xpac

I remember dinging my druid 85, and in a mishmosh of justice points gear and dungeon blues, going into BH, when it was just one boss. And SOLO HEALING ALL THE THINGS!

I remember when ZG and ZA were turned into 5 man heroics. I hated them both, but ZG snake boss made me rage.

I remember when we started Firelands and got discouraged because THIS SHIT’S TOO HARD!

I remember killing Ragnaros for the first time and there was much rejoicing among the 2 people left alive (me and a dps).

I remember MT expanding to the point where we could run 3 groups, and 2 out of 3 killed Rag, while the 3rd group almost did.

I remember MT’s first heroic kills in the same weekend (Shannox and Majordomo Staghelm) and there was much rejoicing.

I remember celebrating MT’s 2nd birthday by farming over nine thousand stacks of obsidium ore to make Personal World Destroyer pets for everyone. (maybe not that many but it seemed like that many)

I remember when DS hit and we went 5/8 in the first week and thought “what the hell? is this really end game?”

I remember meeting some of my fools in Vegas and I had a blast (for one night until I was violently ill for the remainder of the weekend and subsequent 2 weeks). Captain Morgan is bad for my health.

I remember when we got our first heroic DS kills and there was much rejoicing.

I remember when we got our first Heroic Warmaster kill and I ended up SOLO HEALING ALL THE THINGS in P2.

I remember our first attempts at Heroic Madness and that foo enraged on our faces. BUT WE CAN DO IT!!

I remember welcoming so many awesome people into MT over the past ALMOST THREE YEARS!! ZOMG!

I ❤ you all.

Do You Remember When….

July 31, 2012 6 comments

Oh hey! two posts in one day!

As this expansion comes to a close, I think back on many a discussion I’ve had with old school WoW’ers. My brother in law has played since vanilla, and he used to be a raid leader in a top US guild. Back then there was no hard mode or heroic raiding. Heroic raiding was getting INTO Naxxramas, never mind the shit fest that was the Heigan Dance. Or the gear/dps check of Patchwerk. Back when Naxx hovered above Eastern Plaguelands. Hard mode was handling many whelps at level 60. Molten Core Attunements anyone?

Of course this sounds like I’m speaking from experience. I’m totally not. I started playing WoW during the Burning Crusade. Progress was graduating from 10 man raiding in Karazhan to 25 man raiding Gruul and Magtheridon. Hard mode was being NOT PREPARED with 25 of your closest friends. Sure Kil’Jaden ended up being the “end boss” but it really shouldn’t count. Illidan was supposed to be the big baddie. Heroics were truly heroic and you had to be ATTUNED to even zone into heroic dungeons.  Anyone who has been in a 6 hour Heroic Shadow Labs run knows exactly what I’m talking about. How did one get attuned? By grinding faction rep in the normal dungeons to honored. Once you hit honored with that dungeon’s faction, you had to buy a key from their quarter master. Everyone in the group had to have a key.

And there was no Dungeon finder. Oh no. LFD was spamming trade for 3 hours “LF tank Heroic Slabs. Must have key.” Nine hours later, Murmur finally goes down after having lost half your group 17 times during the run, hearthing back to Shatt and spamming trade again. Cross-realm grouping? HAH! That’s a good one. We were TWO expansions away from that nifty little feature! There were no multiple tiers of badges or points. Tier tokens dropped in raids only.  Badges of Justice were the currency, and in order to earn badges of justice, you had to raid. How did you get the gear to raid? By running heroic dungeons and decking yourself out in dungeon set blues. After grinding for the keys. And wasting your life spamming trade because there were no tanks online in guild.

The Burning Crusade was my favorite expansion. I really liked the accomplishment of downing harder content with 25 people. Sure, the logistics were a pain in the ass, but the rewards were great. I liked having to be attuned to get into a heroic dungeon. That way, everyone in the group HAS to know each encounter. Kara was by far and away my favorite raid. So many memories. From pulling the entire audience during the Opera event on a tab-target fail, to winning Attumen’s mount, to chanting “I will not move while the flame wreath is cast” to the Chess event. Oh that stupid chess event. Maiden’s holy fire was a killer as was the cc required on Moroes. Chain trapping. That’s right. There was no trap launcher for hunters. You had to set a trap, hit your target with a distracting shot and pull it into the trap (and pray that your tank knew how to pull off all the other mobs chasing you). And then after about 30 seconds, you had to set another one on top of the current one. Oh and try not to die. They get really pissed off when that trap breaks. Feign death was the most useful ability a hunter had at that time. I had trapping down to a science. I pretty much sucked at everything else, but at trapping? Pro.

And then Wrath hit. For the first patch of that expansion, 25 mans were considered “heroic” mode. And 25 man guilds were the cream of the crop in Wrath. Naxx and Onyxia made a comeback. Way to recycle old content, Blizz. Wrath was not an expansion that I particularly enjoyed.

When Cata hit, it almost seemed to go back to the TBC model.. where purples were rare, and you had to gear up in heroic blues before getting into the entry raid content. But in an almost bassackwards fashion, the content got easier the closer we got to end game, not harder. I think Nef was a touch harder than Rag pre-nerf. Deathwing was a joke. Heroics got nerfed, and heroic dungeons got easier, not harder. I don’t understand. Beating the last boss should be an epic experience, not a “damn squishy dragon. Now what?”

So what do you all miss about expansions past? What are you glad to see go? What you would you love to see again?

My Cataclysm Bucket List

June 6, 2012 12 comments

It’s that time of the expansion where the content is old musty and dusty and there’s nothing to do. Well the first part of that sentence is true, the second part, no way!

At the end of the Wrath expansion, I decided to grind quests on my paladin for the Loremaster achievement. Being as ADHD as I am, I got about 75% through Kalimdor and about 65% through Eastern Kingdoms when Cataclysm hit. And we all know what happened when Cataclysm hit.


Everything changed. My quest progress reset. RESET!!! My Kalimdor progress had a handful of random quests completed in a couple of zones. My Eastern Kingdoms progress was ZERO! Rassafrigginmotherpussbuckets! That’s it Mister Deathwing, YOUR ASS IS MINE!!! I’ve now killed that foo now on 4 toons. Ironically, none of which is the paladin.

My poor Alykii. She was my main for so long, and I just shoved her into a corner for an entire expansion pretending she didn’t exist. Having been my main for so long though, she became my achievement ho, my mount collecting ho and my pet collecting ho. So now that Cataclysm is winding down, what do I do? That’s right. I’m going to be Loremaster before the Panda invasion. I don’t care if nothing’s going to change this time! I’m going to do it dammit and not even the great Panda Boss himself can stop me!

For the record, EK and Kalimdor are done. Hah! Try resetting it NOW suckas! I have the achievements and you can’t take them away! Bwahahaha! As of the writing on this post, Outland is almost done, I have about 35 quests left in Netherstorm. I’ve already Toured the Fjord in Northrend, and got about halfway through the other zones except Icecrown (yuck). I’ve got all the Cataclysm zones done except about 20 or so in Deepholm and the entire underwater area. Oh god. Underwater area. Shoot me now. I got lost underwater after being summoned to Throne of Tides. And I drowned. Twice. It’s safe to assume that I am not looking forward to doing that zone. And that zone will be all that’s left standing in the way of Loremaster. I hate you Blizzard. Hate.

While I’m in Outland, I realized I had a few faction rep’s that were hanging out in “Revered” status. Some ohsoclose to exalted. Why did I abandon these reps when Wrath came out? It made me sad. So I spent a lot more time in Outlands than I wanted to. Grinded up Thrallmar and Sha’tar to exalted and Consortium to Revered (ugh). Consortium wasn’t on the bucket list, but in order to do my last 2 quests in Blades Edge (because another chain bugged out on me), I had to be revered with Consortium to unlock the Bash’ir Landing quests.

Consortium rep sucks big scaly murloc balls. Just sayin’. I spent about three days… THREE farming those goddamn Ethereum Prison Keys and Zaxxis Insignias in Netherstorm just to get to revered. Do  you know the drop rate on those keys? It’s listed as 3%. I call bullshit. I had 70 quests done in Netherstorm before I could finish the last 2 in Blade’s Edge. And now I’m halfway through revered. And in true Masochistic form, I’m not stopping at revered. Not when I’m ohsoclose! I’ll be farming heroic Mana Tombs for the rest of those sadistic bastards’ rep.

So if you got this far, here’s my bucket list of things to do with Alykii before Pandas hit!

  1. Finish Loremaster
  2. Finish Outlands rep
  3. Finish the Outlands Dungeon Hero Achievement (all of which I need for rep)
  4. Get 40 exalted reps
  5. Read the last 6 books needed for the “Well Read” achievement
  6. Go for a Joyride in Azshara
  7. Finish the Outland Raids
  8. Learn how to fish

And my bucket list of things to do in general before Pandas hit!

  1. Max archaeology on at least one toon
  2. Get Star to PVP
  3. Get the GB coffers up to 300k gold
  4. Finish the “Guild Classic Raider” achievement
  5. Finish the “Guild Glory of the Lich King Raider” achievement
  6. Get Kare to finish her legendary dagger quest
  7. Get my hunter to level 85
  8. Kill Heroic Hagara

Anyone else have a Bucket List? Or am I the only weird one?

It’s The End of the World As We Know It, and I Feel Fine

November 28, 2011 3 comments

We are closing in on the one year anniversary of the launch of Cataclysm and finally, the end is in sight. The final content patch of the expansion where Deathwing will ultimately fall. I’m so over this expansion already. It wasn’t the best.

So what am I looking forward to with 4.3?

1. New content. Sort of.

As if I haven’t seen enough of Northrend while leveling as many toons as I can out of sheer boredom, we’re going back there to raid. Dragonblight will be the setting of the Dragon Soul raid. So in a sense, it’s new content in an old setting. I do kinda dig the whole Caverns of Time thing though.

2. Transmummification?…Transmogrifithingiemabobber….oh hell you know what I mean.

For the nostalgics in us all. I’ll collect a nickel for every toon running around in T1 gear. I’ll collect another dime for every toon running around in T6 gear. I like my S10 PVP set on my druid. So that’s what I’m transcombobulating. My pally is probably going to just run around in skimpy santa clothes and my priest is going to rock the mageweave set. Booya.

3. LFR tool.

I’m morbidly curious as to how this might work. Hopefully I can get enough of my guildies together. I wonder if we can cross-realm invite via RealID for this thing? That would be pretty cool. Running it on my alts in a full PuG? Now that would be pure masochism.

4. Deathwing

Oh yeah. The big bad end boss. The death of this god forsaken expansion.

For Pandaria!

(just for the record, I’m ONLY rolling a panda for the racials. My monk will be race changed at 85. I want a goblin monk. Please Blizzard? PLEASE?)
