Public Service Announcement: The BEST Patch Evar!

June 29, 2011


It’s been awhile since I’ve posted regularly, and probably no one comes here anymore except, apparently, for my post about troll and worgen druid forms… weird. Oh well. In any case, I must present to you… THE BEST PATCH IN HISTORY.

What? No! I don’t care about that big scrub, Ragnaros!

Epic feral weapon? Yeah, I suppose that’s cool, too.

Oh, and it changes Cat form to look crazy epic. Meh, you DO see the picture of a bear at the top of this page, right?

You really don’t know what I’m talking about? Really? Wow. Well then, allow me to educate you!

THEY FINALLY DID IT! We can rearrange our character lists!

Always wanted your toons in order from highest level to lowest? Boom. Done.

Most to least played? Easy.

Alphabetically by name? Race? Class?? Yeah, you can do those too.

WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT? Er. Um… That’s actually a really good question, but it probably has to do with my tendency to be OCD. Like srsly. My character list has bothered me for years now, but I haven’t wanted to pay $400+ dollars to do something about it… I’ve only got tendencies toward the deep end; I’m not quite there yet. (Granted, I think Etsu thinks I’m all the way in the deep end. She showed me the rearranging thing and I… well, I believe there was squealing and jumping and lots of maniacal grinning involved. Or something.)

In any case, enjoy rearranging your toons, people, I know I will! ……….. If I can figure out what order the need to be in… Alph- no, er, level- no… DANG.



Gone Fishin’

June 23, 2009

FishingwhiteOne of my favorite proffessions in the game and something all my characters pick up is fishing. There’s just something soothing about popping on a playlist in iTunes and settling in for a good fish. Thus far, I’ve managed Old Crafty, a Giant Sewer Rat, and my Titanium Seal of Dalaran. If you seriously want to geek out though, you should try getting something like Fishing Buddy that will keep track of your catch rates. Then you can fish and fish and fish because every fish caught will make your data more accurate and…! Ahem. Back on subject.

The thing is though, there’s more to fishing than booze and vanity items! Fishing can be a serious asset to you and your guild, allow me to expand upon this, a fine subject.

Today is the day we druids have been looking forward to for night on 5 years, my friends.

“As it is with the druid, so it is with Moonglade. It is a base untruth to say that happy is the druid that has no history. Thrice happy is the druid that has a glorious history. Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious new forms, even though checkered by past low-polygon counts, than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy their class nor suffer much, because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.”

-“Teddy” Rose-pelt*

I have not even words to describe the wonderful thing that has happened today my friends but come patch 3.2, there will be new art atop this blog, art of a bear who is properly white as his FlagRSP description has been stating forever and a day. “Teddy’s” wife El’nore Rose-pelt said, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.” We’ve been dreaming for a long time, you and I. Those Rose-pelts were pretty smart, eh? When this day comes there will be parties, and feasting, and great 40 man conga lines of colorful bears running great patterns through the streets of Dalaran, Orgrimmar, and Thunderbluff! I declare the need for multicolor conga lines!

I can’t say much more, but I will leave you with the gift of the Devs, this beautiful picture of our new and glorious future. (Click the image for full size.)


* “Teddy” Rose-pelt is, of course, Theodore Roosevelt. His original speech which I brutalized in the name of Warcraft with great apologies to his memory is here.

Hat tip to WoW Insider, who I read the information from, and they got their information direct from the source.


I’ve been looking at as many druid blogs as possible to see what my fellow druids think of this change and I’d like to clarify a couple of issues I’ve seen crop up unaddressed.

1. This will come in “four installments” i.e. Tauren Bear, Nelf Bear, Tauren Cat, Nelf Cat. Post by Nethaera. Tree and Moonkin are something they have planned and want to do in the future, but don’t have for us right now. Do note that they want to though. ^^

2. For some reason, whoever made the picture of the new bears decided to do it with every one of them in a Roar animation. That is causing a lot of people to make loud complaints about bears with open mouths and/or “mouthbreathing”. Take a step back and read this other post by NethearaThe bears will both sit and idle while standing with their mouths closed! Isn’t this exciting?!

Also, on a personal note, I wanted to add that lots of people on the official thread keep saying that they wish this wasn’t just a new model and skin, but that they were adding our armor to our bear form. My personal stance on this, is that… I know we’ve been looking exactly the same for ages now, but can you even picture how dumb a bear with a hat and shoulders on would look? (Seriously, what’s on that poor thing’s head?!) One of the things I really like about changing form is that If my gear is best in slot or even just the best I have right now but it looks like something a colorblind beaver would decorate with, I can make it go away by shifting. I don’t know about you, but I’ve had gear sets that looked worse than tauren cat form, even before they put fur on it’s face.

Personally, I’d rather wear epic gear on my humanoid model where it would make sense, and stay as a bear. If I want to show something off, I can. If I would rather something never see the light of day for fear DEHTA would string me out (and the thing is just freaky anyway) than I can stand around in a form until I change into more appropriate looking gear…


Paw Paws

April 14, 2009

pawpawSo, I’m posting late. It’s still Tuesday though! See, one of the unfortunate things about being a student is that right about now and early December you end up going into a giant cyclone of frenzied final DOOM. To be honest, I hadn’t even started to download the patch until now (11:00 pm CST). In any case this is going to be short, in addition to finals I also have some heavy family stuff going on.

I’m here today to introduce you to a word you will all use. Why will you use this? Because the odds of my ever becoming the high evil dictator/overlord of the planet are pretty slim, so I’m going to cash in my chance at the big pot for a smaller prize, i.e. my very small authority over you now. Muahahahaha!

In my one and only act as fleetingly high evil overlord/dictator of the world, I command you all to use this new word:

Paw Paw Bears

What is a Paw Paw Bear you ask? Why, that’s simple! It’s a druid bear using his/her second spec to heal. It’s perfect, you see. A bear and a tree all at once! My brilliance reigns supreme!!11!!


In any case, hopefully some of you remember this cartoon from back in the day.

This got me wanting to edit their theme song to apply to warcraft, but a) It’s a little to simple to do much with and b) I’m angry that wordpress tries to put a double space between all my lines. I need to figure out how to change that.

In any case, have a good Tuesday!
