And we’re about to have the chance to answer.
Well, after the super ultra extended maintenance. As of last night, the realm up time was slotted for 11:59 P.M. EST. That’s a full day of patchy goodness, folks.
I already covered the druid changes, but I failed to come back and finish the raids and professions like I said I would. [Insert BOO track here]. So let me just dive right in and tell you the non-druid specific things I’m excited about (Click here for the complete patch notes):
Flying at level 60. I have one alt that can benefit from this right away, and another who is only 15 levels away. Prepare yourself, Outland; I’m going to fly right through you. And I’ll be able to make my flying machine on my engineer.
My Charger. I have a level 45 paladin who will now have her epic mount. Tanaris? Un’Goro? Silithus? Endless stretches of questing zones? No problem.
More Mailboxes. That’s right, mailboxes. I know it’s dumb, but the fact that I will now be able to stand at Thistlefuzz Arcanery for my enchanting/inscription DK and walk right outside to a mailbox pleases me.
New 5-, 10-, and 25-man Content. Of course I like this!
Potions, Now Even More Stackable. 20 potions per stack? Duh.
Epic Gems. Helps that I’ve been hoarding Titanium and Jewelcrafting tokens.
Flask of the North & Mixology. Not sure if this flask will be usable in PvE without being consumed, but that’s how the tooltip reads, so I’m hopeful. Plus more buffs from Mixology. It’s a good day to be an alchy.
New Battleground. I’ll probably hate it, but right now I’m excited to see it in action.
Twinks Only. I hate being in a bg with twinks; now, twinks will end up getting sorted into their own battlegrounds…or risk LEVELING.
Happy Patch Day, everyone!
