I especially like the roaring bone dragon. Very nice touch. I don’t suppose I can tame one…

Unfortunately all the realms I play on are still down. So I can’t log in and get Niqora a nice new chimera or core hound. I’m not really interested in any of the other new pets. Okay, maybe the moths. Brighit might get one of those. And possibly devilsaurs too. I suppose time will really tell. ;)

I am really looking forward to the new pet skills and talent trees. Every family gets a focus dump and its own special skill, Dash/Dive/Charge is now universal, pets have their own talent tress, new pets are auto-leveled to within 5 levels of your hunter…and last but not least, no more traipsing all over Azeroth to find that rank of whatever pet skill you need.

I remember not so long ago when there was a certain rank of Dash Blacky needed, but the lowest level beast with it was in Blackrock. Niqora tried to venture in there on her own, and then later with a druid friend…only to die repeatedly. I decided it was easier just to wait a few more levels. But now I will never have to do that again!

In other news, I reserved my copy of WotLK a couple days ago. It turns out that they don’t take pre-orders for the Collector’s Edition which I want. They sell those on a first-come-first-serve basis. So I’ll be hanging outside my local EB Games come November 13. :) With the expansion, I’m looking forward to new areas to explore and, as always, new pets! I’ve basically been glued to Mania’s Arcania for latest pet updates. Will I be trying out the new Death Knight class? Most likely but I doubt I’ll stick with it. After all, I’m a hunter and pet lover at heart!

    So many cool and exciting things to do right now I am speechless. I would blog about it but too busy playing :)

    Hehe, I know the feeling. My horde realm is up right now (Deathwing), but most of my Ad-ons are screwed up beyond all belief. Ugh, I really need to quit relying on my guy for my add-ons and start figuring it out for myself.

    I know I need a new bar mod and fast. Titan was great while it lasted…

    Tzia´s last blog post…Decisions, Decisions.

    @ Vlcan: There are lots of things to do. When I finally got in, I spent most of the time checking out the calendar, the achievements, the mount/vanity pet thing, etc. It took me about 10 minutes to find the pet talents. >.< But so far I’m pretty impressed with everything.

    @ Tzia: All my mods are messed up as well, and I needed to change some of my macros. I’m sure there will be lots of updates rolling in. If you liked Titan, try out Fubar, that’s what I use.
