I wonder how many Coren Direbrew fights I’ve healed with that equipped?

Don't let Healers Fish!

Cata Chatter Disclaimer: This post was written prior to Patch 4.0.1 and Cataclysm when things were changing weekly, if not day by day! So there is no guarantee that the information below won’t change. Let us not forget that The Ice Stone has melted.  Thank you!

Ever since I first heard that our unused emblems will be converted into a new system of “justice points“, I’ve wondered what my best move would be concerning heirloom items.  Should I buy them now before things change or wait until the new system is put into place?  Would there be an advantage or disadvantage either way?

Thankfully, a friendly commentator on WoWinsider.com has found the answer for me!   And I wanted to pass it along to all of my fellow indecisive friends who haven’t yet committed to a plan of action for a new toon!

Assuming the prices for heirlooms on wowwiki are correct and do not change, there is a slight advantage to keeping your emblems and buying heirlooms after the patch hits.

40 emblem gear becomes 435 JP (up by a factor of 10.875 )
50 emblem gear becomes 543 JP (up by a factor of 10.86 )
65 emblem gear becomes 706 JP (up by a factor of 10.86)

The emblems themselves go up by 11.58. 

(For example:  40 emblems will equal 463 JPs after the conversion!) 

So the emblem value goes up slightly more than the cost of the gear (about 6%).

Hullo ~ I am back. 

On a sunny day in Dalaran,while fishing in front of Violet Hold, I managed to catch a half empty bottle of moonshine.

Half Empty!

Being an experienced fisherlady, I have had the unfortunate luck of catching this before.  Not to mention the unfortunate idea of drinking it’s contents. 

On this unlucky fishing day, I also managed to catch the bottle’s twin.  A twin that I had blindly vendored away in the past, without realizing it’s true nature. 

Half Full!

At the time, I had thought to myself that the Blizz Gods had missed a chance to send us a message. You know, to go with that lovely question “How do you see the glass?”

It would have been fun had the sell price been more for a half full bottle vs a half empty bottle.  Or vice versa, for that matter.

Of course, I was wrong.  The Blizz Gods did have  a mesage for me.  

Prison Moonshine is so bad, it actually decreases the value of the bottle that contains it!    

Completely Empty but with Extra Value!

Cataclysm – Mage Trees

As you may have learned from my last post, I’m feeling a little unprepared for the upcoming changes to World of Warcraft. 

Not so much on the changes that are happening in Cataclysm – I’m following Dechion’s advice.  But moreso when the changes in the play mechanics, which will be happening with Patch 4.0.  And with stage-2 of the pre-patch download already completed, it grows nearer and nearer.  As such, I decided to take a look at the Cataclysm mage talent trees (dated Sept 17, 2010.) 

Come take a look at the builds I made!  Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

Illidan once told us when Burning Crusade was pending release, “You are NOT prepared.”  Little did I realize that he was referring to a different patch.

I actually saw it before I read about it.  But in case you haven’t heard, Patch 4.0 is on the downlow… er, download.
