World of Warcraft Patch 5.0.4
The latest patch notes can always be found at http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/patchnotes/
Dear Blizzard,Is it really too much to ask for more stable slots? I want to tame more pets, even if I never use them regularly...or at all...but they are so pretty, they must be mine! I just wish there were more pet slots for when I'm out and about--I've been quick-changing pets while going through dungeons for the buffs/debuffs and usually find I don't have the right ones. Ah, well...people make fun of my pretty pink flamingo, but with an AoE armor debuff now, it's worth it.I haven't been able to log in today after the patch, so the jury's still out on a pet having any old spec to it (if I'm even reading that right). A tenacity spirit beast? I find that strangely appealing. o_O No, don't ask me why, but it would be fun for questing. My general overall thoughts on MoP is "squee!", though I'm not looking forward to deciding on talents...there are a few rows I wouldn't mind having two of the talents, since they sound so cool, but whatever. Blizzard will do what it wants, even if in this case I think they pared off far too much. I mean, we went from 30+ down to 18? Crazy. I will miss spirit bond (since I'll probably only take it for PvPing now). T_T And I still don't understand the existence of the fireworks spell....sure, it's fun, I guess (Hunters are now trained in pyrotechnics for weddings, festivals, and graduations? I guess it would help pay for pet food...), but I'd rather have something else. RIP Theramore, but I will gladly take the lovely tabard, since I've been ogling it for years!
Well since I read this an hour ago I managed to pay another month on my other account which houses my Belf Hunter who I would love the Scarlet Chain set on and got the last piece, the legs for her future transmog. Just need my various higher levelled toons to send her the rest which were collected weeks ago. However only having 5 attempts in the space of that hour cost me the tabard. It also cost me never having the full Bloodmail set for her which was another aim. She's only lvl 55, I was hoping to get her to 60 before all this happened. Curse my lack of money this month! -.-;I don't understand why they are releasing the updated instances now, thought it was supposed to be a lvl 90 instance. Guess they're of the first ones you get at lvl 85.Other than that mild QQ I am SO looking forward to the new patch and getting used to my new talents. I had beta and still didn't know what to make of them. Also Hunters need to focus more on expertise now am I right? Lots to get used to. Account wide mounts + pets though = :DEDIT: Omg is that a HYDRA talent I see there? I thought we weren't getting tameable Hydras!EDIT 2: Thanks for the reply Adamsm, that makes sense. I wasn't around for the pre-cata patch so didn't think of that.
try getting the Tabard before the 25th i got it 4 weeks ago
shockadins are back!
The character creation screen has been changed to reflect the faction conflict instead of your race's homeland.But why? These look awful and static compared to the old ones. And the pandas get their own, so it isn't even to separate horde/alliance pandas, either. I thought they learned that fixing something until it breaks is a bad idea.
The PlayerScore addon was causing major performance issues, try disabling it first if you having issues too.
Wow! This patch is seriously broken. In 2 minutes of logging in I see multiple bugs.First, on the character select screen my DK is about 40% smaller than all my other characters.Second, one of my characters has 104 pets. Not bad, except I have 2 Alliance Balloons, 2 Anacona Chickens, 2 Bombay Cats, etc. Not everything is doubled, I'd guess it's doubled from the pets from the only 2 characters I've logged in with. (Logged in with another - yup 3 shared now! 141 pets!)Third, my mounts aren't shared. Some are but I have the blue drake on my shaman that isn't showing up on my other characters. (Ah, you have to log in with all characters before you get them!)Fourth, a few achievements are not shared. Loremaster of Northrend shared instantly but all my other Loremaster achievements didn't. Loremaster of Eastern Kingdoms and Loremaster of Cataclysm did share (I'm sure many more didn't either).Terrible that we get to beta test this. This is core functionality that should've been working already.
The "Blacklist Battlegrounds" doesn't seem to work right now. Blacklisted Alterac Valley and still got put into it.
AoE Looting ! woooooow!
and this marks the end of WoW and its great gameplay and the start of the end of the franchise im so sad at the changes that they made to all the stuff i loved and now its just not the same anymore.....
Not to sound ungrateful, but one extra character slot four expansions later is too little, too late. Heck, allow us to PURCHASE a character slot. I'd pay 15 bucks for a new slot in a heart beat.
One thing I have to say.I hate what they've done to Jaina's hair *sob* :(
Playing whilst the download is in progress, so would this affect why my achievements/pets/mounts have not been shared across my account? On my old server, my old main has 50+ mounts, tonnes of pets and various achievements (including the Meta for the world events). Shouldn't this be showing up on my characters on the new server? (e.g. shouldn't my 85 BElf priest on Kazzak be able to access the violet Proto Drake and the various titles earned by my Human Paladin on Arathor)
I didn't see anything mentioned about the Reputation changes.there seems to be no more Weekly rep cap for Guild reputation nor daily guild XP earning caps either.
.... and the world will now be overtaken by pandaren yay =D
