Omigodohmigodohmigodohmigod I want one I want one!! When I saw the picture I thought it looked okay, but what the fuck is it? Then Dan made me watch the video. This mount is frickin’ amazing!! Just makes me sad that it’s more than probably going to be either TCG (*sob*) or Blizzard store, from which I’ve bought nothing since Celestial Steed.. when you’re unemployed with a mean book habit, there’s no spare cash for Banana Dragons and Creepy Flying Lions and Flying Closet Goats. But omigod isn’t it equally adorable and amazing looking? It poops rainbows for goodness sake, people!!
I just wanted to know – why does everything always have to have a group of haters? Okay, the trailer won’t be for everybody but by no means does it signal the end of WoW and surely the arguing is a little unnecessary?
And then I got all curious over “Why do HC raiding guilds say ‘no’ to females?” and clicked on it and I honestly have no idea what went through my head because I know what the vast majority of male WoW players say to this sort of question. I know. And I still clicked. And I was still disgusted.
And they’re just from page 1, I couldn’t bring myself to read any more and risk seeing anything worse. The state of gender inequality within the general World of Warcraft community drives me insane. And I love that two of those comments were so bad that they had to be edited by a mod…
So there’s my daily doseage of hate. But isn’t the trailer amazing at least?
So, not only are these pieces well itemised, it’s kind of clear from the word go which piece to not go for looking at the stats and socket bonuses. Every single piece has a red socket with an agility bonus, with the chest having somewhere to put your Nightmare Tear. The legs are the one piece I’m not impressed with, and I wouldn’t say they’re too awful either. I’m a happy hunter.
Don’t you hate it when your PC crashes mid blog post when you haven’t even thought about saving it yet and the auto save hasn’t even triggered itself? Sigh.
Anyway, as I was saying. Whilst trying to complete a few quests I was met with “Go check MMO. NOW!” So off I trotted only to be met with the news that all of the recent Cataclysm news, including the new Goblin/Worgen races, class combinations (Tauren Paladins woohoo!), as well as a huge revamp of Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor, has now been confirmed by Blizzard.
I recommend you go check MMO-Champion for yourself to see. Also the direct link to the blue post for easier finding later on. The race/class combinations can be found nicely laid out here. World of Raids have some awesome live blog coverage going on from Blizzcon if you’re interested in uptodate Cataclysm/Blizzcon news as it happens.
