And I’m…. …. … … .
Yeah. That. Now that doesn’t mean I’m floored, jaw on the floor, at a lack for words because things are so great.
I’m also not speechless because things are so horrible that I’m ready to leave the game. I’m not.
I’m just….. yeah.
I made it through without losing any enchants like I heard some people did. Apparently it was just a bug. I did still have a ton of ammo in the bank that I just up and vendored. Not a big deal. Most it it came from skilling up engineering on an alt with materials I had anyways. I know it’s a still technically a loss of gold, but nothing huge.
I set the first of my specs back up with a basic Beastmaster build. Nothing fancy but seemed to work well enough when I took it out for a spin to farm some chilled meat and leather. The DPS did seem a little low, but I had mostly run as survival before the patch so it’s not quite a fair comparison. In Beastmaster, obviously more DPS comes from the pet.
Speaking of pets….What I am missing in this patch, are my pets. And that bothers me. It says my first pet is a raptor (I don’t recall ever having a raptor). It says my second pet is my wolf, Frostymug (my active pet when the patch hit). The rest of my available slots are empty! Where may I ask, might Pintglass, Sixpack, and Taphandle get off too Blizzard? I mean, it isn’t exactly easy to hide a giant white Devilsaur for crying out loud! I’ve been told it’s a bug, so I’ve taken the path of being patient for now, but I *really* don’t want to have to go tame that sucker again.
Especially with Hallows End starting. I guess I’ll see how survival specs out for that if the pets don’t come back.
In the meantime, I’ve been leveling a mage alt. Immediately after the patch, it was glorious. Even specced frost for survivability I was often killing things before my water elemental got off a shot. Even after getting hit with the nerf bat, he’s cruising right along. Of course, I did make sure he’d have heirlooms and good gear so that helps. He should be 80 by cataclysm easily. Now if I can just do something about that awful hat he’s wearing.
