I’d like to see race specific flying mounts.

Orcs get wolves with wings. Trolls get raptors with wings. Etc. (But obviously Blizz would have to utilize much cooler ideas. :P)

Yeah, just a thought…

Healing Consequences

I went to bed right after a well attempted, yet unsuccessful, Heroic Grim Batol last night, where I was healing.

Not too long after that, I got up.  Half asleep I muttered something to Regis about “noises” keeping me awake. I wandered back to bed shortly after that.

Today, Regis reports “You said something about spell noises, although I don’t totally remember myself.  I just recall NOT hearing anything unusual.”

“Maybe it wasn’t “spell” noises…” he added. “You may have said “chakra”. 😛

It’s all coming back to me now.  

The distinct sounds of a prayer of mending bouncing around… inside my mind.

Dear Gov,
 
I haven’t seen you online in forever! I sure hope you still exist!  And I’m sure you’re as handsome as ever, you big frosty bearded lug you!
 
I’m having a DK Critter Party on Saturday night which I think you will LOVE!  Okay, okay – I had to take the “DK” out of the event name for class balance purposes but we all know that DKs are the top Critter Killers around – with our Blood Boil and sweet Death and Decay! Not to mention Howling Frost if you decide to spec Frost for the event!  Those penguins won’t know what hit them! Bwahahaha!
 
Anyway, hope to see you!
 
XO ~Muah!
 
Maiwyn!
 
 
PS.  Be sure to bring a flask of Dalaran Red.  It will go well with tiny skull bashings!

Fear of Talent Points

Last night, my troll shaman hit level 10 and with great interest, I read all the shiny new in-game announcements of what spells I could learn and what had unlocked.

“Oooh – talents are unlocked.”

I looked at the talent summaries and they all sounded great.  I looked at the first tier of talents that I could choose from and they all looked good.  It was at that point, indecision struck.

“Crap..”

What?” said Regis.

“I have pick a talent spec.”

I think you should go Elemental.” he said.

“I think I should re-roll.”

Instead of making a decision, I logged on to my level 15 Tauren druid.  I withdrew everything she had in the bank, emptied her bags and forwarded it all to another toon.  I sold off all of her soul-bound items, clothes and bags.  I deleted her and then immediately re-rolled her into a fresh level 1 Tauren druid!  Woo-hoo!

And behind my druid, I’ve got plans for 3 other security blankets  fresh toons to roll. 

In all seriousness, it is quite silly to have this ‘fear’ of talents and it’s something that I must get over.  With the changes Blizz has made to the leveling process and to the talent trees, there is no better time to get over this insecurity.  Leveling specs are mostly a thing of the past.  There is no right or wrong spec for leveling anymore.  It’s more widely accepted to level which ever way you’d like to play (at least I think so).  Sure, there are advantages and disadvantages to each spec in terms of leveling but if you aren’t in any rush, who cares.

So, patch 4.0.1 has been with us a few weeks and I’m  starting to get used to the changes.

One thing is very clear at this point — I was not prepared.

I thought I was in good shape. I had looked at the new talent trees, read about some of the class changes and my inscriptionist knows every glyph. I figured it would be about on par with 3.0.

Now I realize exactly what needs to be done for each character spec before they are really ready for Cataclysm.
