Wrath of the Linkbacks 2.4.2

What’s up with the title? I was trying to get WotLK, linkbacks, and patch 2.4.2 all in there and epically failed šŸ˜›

First up, some long overdue linkbacks to:

Laser Chicken – This poor guy has has Petoholics on his blogroll forever but I only found it out after he left the game. But now he’s back and it’s about time I pay him his dues!

Warcraft and Other Hooha – I’m not exactly sure what “Hooha” is but it seems to have lots of pretty screenshots and interesting topics so I like it šŸ™‚

The Troll Hunter – Again, I’m not listed as a “Great Hunter Site”. What does a girl have to do to get recognition around here? On second thought, don’t answer that. I kid of course. Friendly /wave over to Wolfrider!

Next, Patch 2.4.2. It’s live now (or so I’ve been told; I’m at work right now) and the issue that’s been up on my mind is the Growl changes. Blizzard said “Growl now scales with Hunter RAP, not pet RAP” but Mania, Znodis, and others have responded with “Umm, nothing’s changed. Here’s the data from all the tests we’ve performed.” Blizzard then stares blankly at them for a moment then says loudly to no one in particular “Growl now scales with Hunter RAP, not pet RAP.” Hilarity ensues, or at least it would if this wasn’t just plain irritating. My Mr. Paladin has a saying: “If you say something loud enough and long enough, people begin to believe it.” Okay, maybe that works with some people but reality can’t be convinced no matter how loud you yell. I don’t know where things are going awry but something’s not right and I hope Blizzard can at least straighten things out.

Frustrations over that aside, I’m sure everyone has heard of all the new info released about Wrath of the Lich King. If you haven’t…man, I thought I lived under a rock. I don’t know anything going on in local news (because I don’t watch the news on TV or read the newspaper) but even I have heard about all of the new WotLK stuff!

Ahem…I didn’t go in depth into all of it, just read the summaries that have been plastered on every other blog. I did watch all the videos on GameSpy and I really recommend everyone else does as well. It gives you a very good look at how beautiful Northrend will be. That’s what I’m looking forward to the most…aside from taming one of those new wolf models! And mounts that can carry passengers! If they ever give us player housing, I’ll be in Nerdvana šŸ™‚

My personal to-do list before WotLK comes out is to: get Niqora her PvP mount (working hard on that one) and also get her to level 70. That’s what absolutely has to be done. I’d really like her to get her flying mounts, both normal and epic, but that might be wishful thinking. Luckily, they haven’t announced the release date yet so I’m not in panic mode. I’m pretty sure that I have plenty of time to get those done šŸ˜‰

    One nice thing now that you are in Outlands is the Money seems to come in easier. One thing that helped me is having the Ratings buster add-on and then when the quests give out loot (usually non hunter look I think but that’s just me:)) and then I can tell which piece brings in the highest amount of gold and can select that as the reward. But hey, this is probably old news to a pro like you!!!
    I’m hoping to get to 70 soon too!!!I really want the Gladiator’s Mail helm…../drool.

    Pro like me? I don’t know about that one šŸ™‚

    Ratings Buster is awesome. In the beginning, I just got it for curiosity sake but now I use it all the time for my gear changes.

    Thanks for the link back, although it’s partially my fault that you didn’t know hehe. I need to work on not lurking so much and actually leave comments on blogs I read!

    Hey there! Person from that Hooha blog here. Hooha was a word we always used when we couldn’t think of the word for something – but a plural kinda thing. So the singular thing you couldn’t think of was the whatsis or thingamajig – but a bunch of stuff/junk/things was a buncha hooha. Or you could use it to censor yourself – “he called me a what?!!! well that’s just a bunch of hooha!” Which makes little sense…but then neither do any of the other supposed definitions of hooha. It’s a nice flexible word that way!
    And thank you for the nice link!

    And I’ve always meant to comment here that I love your site design, so good looking – and it makes me wish I saw more of that color of cat running around the major cities more often!

    I’m psyched for WoTLK – but at the same time I have SO much I want to get done before that happens!

    @ Delos: Nice to see you de-lurking šŸ™‚ And I want to be a dragonkin too!

    @batgrl: Thanks for the “hooha” explanation. I prefer the word “doohickey” only because it makes me giggle uncontrollably. But I’m weird that way. Also, thank you for the compliment on my design. And here’s to WotLK šŸ˜€

    Bwahahhaaha – have linked you under Pet Master šŸ™‚

    Now what peeps will make of that I am not sure because I totally made the title up.

    But hey with 66 posts under the pet category, your awesome lynx banner, your blog title of choice and the pet namerator you more than qualify to be a Pet Master in my book… errr whatever that is *hee hee*
