You guys make me laugh :)

I want to explain my post from yesterday, but I have a feeling that I'll confuse you even more! Still, I have to give it the old college try, so here goes.

To put it as simply as I can think of (and in as few "gaming terms" as possible, for those who aren't familiar).. today we're getting a patch on WoW.. meaning that they're adding new stuff to the game, and changing the way a lot of things work. This is in preparation for the expansion.. which is a bigger and more involved change to the game as a whole. So big, in fact, that they have to sell an entire new bunch of CD's to get the data out to all of the subscribers.

What this means for me.. they're changing a lot of things for hunters. (That's what Asara is, up there on the left). The skills we use will be changing, and we're getting the option to use a bunch of new pets as well. Right now we can have up to three, soon we'll be able to have five, and I'm going to take advantage of that!

Be prepared for a lot of new screenshots, these new pets are wicked cool, and I'm going to want to show off what I get! :)

And as for the part about the server, well, "patch day" is notorious for messing up the game servers pretty badly. We already won't be able to play for half of the day today because they're adding all of this new data, and they have a lot of servers to add it to. The older ones (like mine) sometimes don't take the change too well, and end up being offline longer than originally intended. So, my hope for the other WoW players that stop by is that this doesn't happen on their servers, and that they are able to log in and enjoy the game and all the new stuff that is going to be available, not just to hunters, but to everyone! Hooray!

So, let me get this straight...

There's this online world, sometimes it changes and you get new abilities, talents, pets and places to go...

You get to meet up with new and interesting characters who join you in quests for treasure and fabulous items...

Man, sounds better than real life.

My hunter is an alt to mine and skin for my main. Can you suggest a good talent spec that includes 51 in BM? I assume a Ferocity pet would be a good idea or should I get him a Tenancity pet?

If you enjoy it then that is all that matters. Have fun. :)

Absolutely! What Sandee said.
Anything that involves pets has to be a good thing!

I wish I could do this. I know it'd be loads of fun. But, with babies as small as mine there's no time. Maybe some day! :)

Hope you have fun, darling!

Ah, so this is what all the moaning and groaning from the dining room is all about! Amanda says that her patch is only about 25% done.

I haven't really played Cherrise yet, but I did play Stargazer for a while last night. I didn't see too much new for her but I did respec her to Fire.
