In the last two days I’ve actually managed to get back into the game a bit. No, not on my main computer. So far Blizzard’s reply to my ticket was to refer me to the 5.0.4. known issues thread and post…which doesn’t mention my problem and I’ve already done all those things. Of course upon telling them that, I’ve not heard back.
From a talent standpoint, things are certainly interesting. I’ve only done some questing at this stage, so I don’t know how the changes would stand up for me in a raid or dungeon setting. I do know this: most of the level 15 talents do nothing for me and don’t feel all that much like a “choice.” It’s like when I ask my son if he wants jam on his peanut butter sandwich or not. In the end, he’s still having peanut butter.
I cannot get used to commas in the game. Whether it’s my gold, or damage meters…it’s just weird to see.
I really love the flavour Glyphs. It just feels to me like that’s how they should have been in the first place. I also like the idea of learning abilities from them (Corpse Explosion!!!). As I haven’t been on as much as I’d like, I don’t have a full grasp on them, nor have I managed to make as much gold off them as I wanted to (still do well enough just the same).
AoE looting is wonderful. I say that truthfully, but still manage to completely forget its very existence more than half the time. The same can be said for no longer requiring range on my Hunters. Liouxpold keeps backing up to take his shots. Old habits die hard, don’tcha know.
Read Tides of War and will be posting a review on it. Short thoughts:
- Jaina’s final destination makes complete sense.
- Windle Sparkshine was tied in beautifully.
- I didn’t like the key relationship in the book.
- Um, exactly how did Garrosh’s new assistant end up where he is? Seems kind of “So, I’m here now. Deal with it.”
I need to be updating the LBR schedule for this month. After the Alliance go get Illipants this weekend, the Horde will get Arthas next weekend. I had originally planned on getting a Deathwing run in before Mists but after a minor incident a few weeks ago, I think something current (plus still adjusting to all the class changes) would create the wrong environment and defeat the purpose of Laid Back Raids. I’m sure in no time I’ll be adding the Cataclysm ones in though. I can’t wait to see them for the first time!
Indeed, the only Cataclysm raids I’ve done are the two Deathwing ones in LFR. It wasn’t intentional, it just worked out that way. Plus, I know for a fact if I wasn’t running LBRs each week, I would’ve been able to go with Myth on a few. Sad thing is how many Transmog outfits I could make even better if I did go.
Speaking of Transmog, you’d think I would be burned out after the games wrapped up. to some extent this is true. But, having said that, I have something in mind. No, no more contests for a while. This is just an idea I had that won’t involve too much work. I think I’ll start it next week or the week after.
WordPress added a “random header” feature that allows for your header to change. I don’t know when, but this makes me happy. I like being able to have a non-stagnant header and this will allow me to feature more members of Team Amateur more prominently.
