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˜‰
