As I’m sure some of you already know, Patch 3.2 is hitting live servers today. If you’re accustomed to logging on just after extended maintenance, I’d brace yourselves for a long morning and afternoon. This one’s a biggie, so no doubt it could take a lot longer than usual.
So what are your plans this week after 3.2 goes live? The Crusader’s Coliseum? Isle of Conquest? A new paint job for your Tauren? Oracle or Wolvar?
I’m excited about this patch. It may not be the patch that Hunters were necessarily hoping for, but with a patch so rife with class nerfs, it’s nice that we got thrown a couple of bones. There are loads of other goodies being introduced this week too…
Children’s week. I’m looking forward to having my new pet Oracle.
Battleground experience! Sort of reminds me how I spent much of my time leveling Garwulf in Alterac Valley in the days of yore. Now we’ll have more options at least. I like this change a lot, since most of my alts will be gearing through PvP anyway. This change will kill two birds with one stone.
Upgraded Wintergrasp items. Some nice stuff here, even if it does have way too much hit rating (well… for PvP at least). Although… the new rings look pretty good and while I’d prefer crit rating, armor penetration is a decent trade-off.
New epic gems (which are pretty easy to attain I might add). These can be transmuted, prospected from Titanium Ore, purchased with emblems, or bought for the paltry fee of 10K honor. Did I mention I’m honor capped..? 😉
New dinosaur pets! I think this is a cool little addition. I’m not a huge non-combat pet fan, but they’re still fun. This will give me something to do when I get the urge to chase down some rare spawns. I especially want the Ravasaur Hatchling. Although he’s not exactly the same skin, he’ll look pretty neat next to HOSS.
New Heirloom items. Chest pieces with the 10% experience buff and The Tome of Cold weather Flying! Good news for those with altitis. Hey, I’ve got 2 toons sitting at 74 now. With these new BoA items I may actually have more than 1 80 before WoW is all done. 😉
Arena Season 7. I like the changes being made to a few of the arenas, especially being able to mount in a larger Dalaran Sewers.
I’m looking forward to some of the other content as well, but I’m not super jazzed about any of it yet. I’m sure that will change once our guild starts messing around in the Crusader’s Coliseum. The Isle of Conquest looks interesting, but I’m not as fond of the siege PvP as maybe some others are. I’ll still be checking it out this week for sure.
I suppose being Beast Mastery for PvP is one reason why I’m not as miffed as some other Hunters are about the patch. I see us definitely benefiting from these changes more so than the other two specs. If only they’d made the resilience scaling a bit higher and added crit rating for pets… Then I’d really be a happy Hunter. Oh well… there’s always 3.3.
What are you looking forward to in 3.2, and most importantly, are you going for the Oracle or Wolvar pet? 😉
Well that’s it for now. I gotta get.
