030: Patch 2.3 so far

Word on the forums was that if you grabbed the new FP at the STV Rebel Camp and flew to Booty Bay, you'd cross directly over the Gurubashi Arena and get flagged if you weren't already. The fun thing is that apparantly you could be attacked by Alliance too, once you landed in BB. Of course we ran through Duskwood to test it - who doesn't want to kill their own guildies once in a while? - but sadly it didn't work for us. Might be a PvE realm thing, since we're always flagged in STV and thus nothing changes for us when flying over the Arena. For those of you on PvE realms, did you test it out and go Alliance killing? And if you did, how did the guards react to it?

Besides that slight dissappointment in what could be a super fun glitch, I'm very happy with 2.3. I don't like that the Wintersaber rep gain is so much easier, but hey, at least I'll get my purple kitty sooner than expected. I'm also very happy with the auto-leave-shadowform when I hit a holy spell. It's gonna cut down that precious GCD second during PvP which might save my sorry ass every now and then! Noticed also that quests you haven't yet picked up show up on the minimap now. That comes off as a wee bit lazy to me, but hey, whatever.

Beyond that I haven't really tested things out yet. Haven't even bothered to pick up Fear Ward. I went straight to Winterspring this morning and I plan to stay here until we head for Zul'Aman tonight (provided that the server lives). There's already another Priest grinding Wintersaber rep and I expect there'll be several more as the days go by. I want to finish asap to avoid the crowd :[

ETA: ding! Revered.

apparently there's a huge bug here on the us realms where shamans are getting free t6 resto gear. so there should be bugfixes soon.

funny as it is, you still need to be attuned to mount hyjal to get it, since thats where the vendor is...

Aww until I read Doom's post I was thinking WOO a chance to test out top end gear!

/sighregret

Mana Battery Bitch said...

Yeah the Shamans in our guild were all excited too, until they realised where the vendor was :P

No problems on our server either. Haven't had the chance to do ZA yet, the guild wanted like the perfect group to go and since we're still in Kara gear I guess we're not perfect. My only bitching is that there seemed to be word going around that ice block would be trainable for all mages, and it's not. Lo and behold there it still sits, 20 points in under frost.

I do like that I can now create refreshment tables though.
