Default World of Warcraft just patched

The one patch to RULE THEM ALL


-Mounts 4 Free 2 All levels Lawl

-Twinks have their own private BG's where those of use who aren't cave dwelling trolls needn't bother with them.

-Instances and Raids can be "saved" with a special ID that allows you to pick up where you left off another day. This may well be the end of ginormous fucking 10 hour raiding marathons.

*yaaaaay*

I gotta say, I'm really impressed with how Blizzard dealt with twinks. That shit is elegant.

Yeah I think I more excited about the twinking than anything else. It makes them happy because it is now easier and at the same keeps them out of everyone else's hair. I do predict that there will be alot less twinks now. I think some of the appeal was to beat up on weaker players.

I'm not sure how I feel about the changes to Wintergrasp. I like the fact that it wasn't like all the other Battlegrounds and required actual pre-battle organization.

I do like Battlegrounds experience. I love battlegrounds but only did them on my pre-80's when I had a quest because it took away from grinding time.

I'm not sure about all the other changes because I don't understand the math of the game that well. I guess I'll find out through trial and error.

I have to wonder how many things Blizzard is going to 'fix' before they run out.

Clearly you have never raided. This system has been in the game since Molten Core. The saved ID automatically resets every week (server maintenance is set up to happen at this time, but if for some reason they do maintenance on a different day the ID still resets on the same day)

The change this patch is that you can elect to prevent last week's ID from resetting.

So, this is the beloved 'Vanilla Patch' everyone's been waiting for?

Apprently the option has just been stuck in some obscure Cthulhu Fthagan corner of the UI where no one has ever seen or heard of it then.

I am terrified to log in and find out how much my PvE DPS has been nerfed in the name of PvP balance.

I've been dreading this day for weeks.

The 'option' is not optional - it happens automatically as soon as you kill a boss, and you're the last person on earth not to know about it.

Nobody but you ever thought that it wasn't possible to leave off in the middle of, say, Naxxramas, and come back the next day and all the bosses you killed would be back. (Unless it was Monday.)

At first you had to input some weird slash command to see your raid ID (if you had to tell a GM or figure out if you were saved to the same ID) but now (since Wrath came out, if not before) there's a button in the raid frame that you can push to see a list of things you are saved to and their IDs. It's on the top, on the right.

Again, the only change this patch is the option to extend last week's ID to this week (unless it was already extended).
