I don’t know where I’ve been, but I just realised that there is a skunk pet to be acquired as an achievement for collecting 50 pets. Now, I’ve been a bit “meh” about achievements, since I really don’t see the point (especially since none of the pre-TBC bosses and accomplishments will be reflected. But I’m quite excited about the pet. The first time I saw skunks in Terrokar, I was in love, and said that they would be darling vanity pets. Yeah, shallow, I know.
On a more serious note, I still have no real idea what spec I should take. I don’t think I’ll sacrifice the needed dps points in the MM tree just to have exotic pets (which really hurts me), so I’ll probably go with this. I don’t have anywhere near the agility to try survival, and mana issues which are bad now are expected to get worse, so I won’t go back to MM.
As for pets, I think I’ll get a quick Underbog heroic run together and tame a 70 wasp for raiding, and also try a moth. For fun, I’d like to try tanking with either a gorilla or a bear (probably a diseased black bear just to be all ick and nasty and everything).
And I’m going to play with Kit’s hair. :) I think it will stay white, because it suits her, but I’d like to try that dwarf braid down the back – that looks like a no-nonsense hairstyle for a hunter. Kitsune is a no-nonsense kind of girl.
We’re supposed to be raiding tonight, but given the problems in the States, I don’t see any way we’ll all be patched and ready by raid time. Addons are going to be interesting, although I’ve downloaded most of the updates for essentials: CT Mod, Bartender 4, Recount, BigWigs, FuBar. Fingers crossed that everything works. But I’ve patched and am hopefully ready for tonight…and am really excited. :)
We didn’t get Brutallus down last night, which is a shame – it would have been very nice to do it before the patch. However, judging by the early reports, we should be able to get through a lot of Sunwell prior to the expansion, along with a lot of other guilds. Disappointing, but at least we’ll be able to see the content.
All in all, hats off to Blizzard pulling off one of the largest patches in MMO history.
