Enough bitching. Patch 6.0 hits Tuesday, people. Get ready to feel like you're not wearing epics again  DRILLING AND MANLINESS

Is the pre-launch event any fun? I haven't looked into it at all.

There's a quest series of about a dozen quests that rewards you with your own Iron Starlette pet, and the special lvl 90 UBRS will be available. SoO is also getting the new raid changes treatment, so people can start freaking out about flex LFR sooner rather than later  why so serious?

Along with the class, graphics, and systems changes, Tuesday should be fun, should the servers actually make it online and last through the night.

Fake edit: ilvl 550 blues dropping from the lvl 90 UBRS, also featuring some of the new stats and even an on-proc weapon  ACK!

Same slap that comes around every xpac. The saving grace this time around is the legendary cloak, heirloom weapons from Garrosh, and quad-upgradable epics, which these 550 blues can't do.

Also, bitching thread is o'er yonder.

Does the updated Molten Core raid with Corgi pet reward come as part of this step?   I havent played for about 4 months, and I think my main pair of toons was pretty much full normal gear.  Wonder if I am going to get the cold shoulder if I try to find a group for that when it hits (what? not fully decked out in completely upgraded heroic gear.  Noob.  We dont feel like carrying you...)

The Molten Core thing is part of their birthday thing next month. It'll be LFR'able, but you gotta be 100 to get to in.

Everyone will get the corgi pet just for logging in during the birthday event.

I Don't play WoW for any sort of End-game (the raiding Hokey Pokey is uninteresting to me, and the Economy game is not to my liking)... but I occasionally will re-sub to check out major systems overhauls.  So, I'm oddly excited for patch day tomorrow to see some of the changes.  Strange how they've successfully managed to wring the odd ducat out of me on-and-off since I decided the game was not for me in 2007 with Burning Crusade (though in full disclosure, I did enjoy the end of WOTLK - but that was the last time I did anything with group content... since then, just a little solo leveling to admire the snappy mechanics and see some sights).  Like a business trip where I rent a car I wouldn't buy, just to see what its like.

This is gonna sound old-school and corny as hell, but the advice they're giving about defragging before and after the patch is somewhat worth looking into if you've got your install on a non-SSD. I defragged last night, just had my client do the file conversion and patch, and upon a new defrag analysis, I'm back to 18% fragmentation.

Moving a lot of datas today. And I'm sure someone will begin a rant about how this patch bricked their hard drive.

Battle.net applied another WoW patch this morning, only a couple hundred mb or so.
Once it was done, I started up WoW to see what would happen.

The cinematic intro happened (the one where Grom confronts Gul'dan and Mannoroth).

And then the login screen threw an error message at me. Which wasn't shocking; I would have been more surprised if it had let me log in at that hour (~5am PDT).

We'll see how well things are going at the end of the day  awesome, for real

Whelp... that was underwhelming.

The crafting from the new vault tab is nice... but it still needs to be account wide.  I know they just re-did the only the character models... but the rest of the art is still pixellated... except for the tiny nose on my Dwarf that is slightly more expressive (even though I never see it, since I stare at his back and never see his face).  Somehow thought the talent/ability rework was going to be more significant... two icons dropped from secondary bars.

The talent rework depends a lot on the class. Some had a lot more abilities removed than others. Like for my boomchicken they removed a bunch of spells and condensed moonfire/sunfire to be the same button that just changes depending on the cycle. I did find it funny that they also removed the last two expansions max level spell think boonkin are back to spells they had with lich king now.

Since this is the positive thread, I'll point out the things I like.

Statsquish is a good idea, those numbers are getting asburd. Toybox is a great idea and I wish they'd had it two expacs ago. I have no idea where some of those toys are now, or if it will remember what I did with them. Dumping skills is also good. I hate skill bloat more than anything in MMOs. It's just bars and bars of nonsense.

So, I guess they upgraded existing accounts to MOP level.  That's kind of nice.  Still pretty sure I'm never going to play again, but that definitely makes it easier.

edit: NM, read somewhere that they did this a while ago for Cata subscribers.  And now I'm reading conflicting reports.   awesome, for real

Toy box and harvested resource bank would have made the expansion worth purchasing by themselves for those who like wow. Really really nice things so I can use my bank for more interesting stuff.

I did not get a lot of chance to play last night but I did get to putz around a bit with my arms warrior. Very different play style a whole lot of whirl winding in the single target rotation.

I really dont like what they did to the night elf posture. They are more hunched and odd looking now. More thugish. Not that I play an elf, just saying.

Also, it looks really weird to see these nice new high poly heads sticking out of some of the older armor models.

Patch going up today to address issues found over the last few weeks. Most notably graphic and balance issues (apparently the guy put in charge of stat squishing enchants and consumable buffs did a terrible job, as Cata stuff was actually working better than MoP).

Also, for those, like me, who did the Blasted Lands questline before they put in the 520 trinket rewards, you can now buy those trinkets from a vendor in the Blasted Lands. They may not be BiS for longtime raiding folk, but for newly boosted toons, you can't beat 'em.

Finally, it's the last week of Hallow's End. I don't care so much for the pets and stuff, but I would really like that 540 helm for my DK.

Wife wants the Lich King costume, but goddamn is it hard to get 500 treats.  I don't know why I'm doing this instead of her, but at least her character is a mage.

They say that as long as you max your treat income from day 1 to the end and don't consume or spend them on anything, 500 is doable. Somewhere around 620-640 is the theoretical. The blue response is that since the pets and toys are now account wide, they don't have an issue with you using one character to focus on the Lich King costume while another goes for everything else.

I would have worked harder to get the LK thing if it did not have a limited amount of charges. Anything with limited charges means I will NEVER click it because I may want to use it more at some unspecifiec time in the future.

For being able to transmog your entire character model into one of the most iconic characters in WoW's history, I think the time needed to be invested along with having 100 charges is a fair exchange. You can always get another one next year.

Tried out the premade group thing a couple times over the weekend. Brought back memories of years gone by where it boils down to herding cats and booting noobs/PvP idiots, but it's nice to have some kind of group forming tool back in the game. Even got my Garry heirloom with it, so I'm more than ready to tackle WoD now.

At least I'm not the only one. 90% of consumables I ever found in WoW are sitting in the bank with (n-1) charges because I clicked them once and "Oooooh cool!" then didn't want to waste them.

Dropped cash on Warlords, used the bump to 90 on my L40 monk... log in to find I'm outside the dark portal with only 3 spells in my spellbook WTF?

You earn your spells by completing the transition quests except that you are severely gimped and are lucky to be able to solo some mobs because you don't have your passives or bread and butter spells. A friend was in a worse situation - he bumped his 80 warrior only to find that he had charge and one other spell. The rest was autoattack because "we think you should re-learn your spells that you've used for years".

Just when you think Blizzard developed common sense in WoW, they pull shit like this.

Anyway, a quick goole and I found out that going to a class trainer and resetting your specialisation gives you all your spells and flying back. Did I mention that you can't fly until you've done all the quests?
