The Dreamer Awakens

In the new fanart posted to the Blizzard Gallery, there is an excellent image of Ysera in her Night Elf form:

Speaker of dragons, I've been working on the rep for Brood of Nozdromu, finally got out of hated,  Couple of AQ40 runs, and the rep quest, and I'll be able to work on the Scepter of the Shifting Sands questline.  I'm going to try and finish it before patch 4.0.3 hits.

Horseman falls Again

Strumwulf acquired the Headless Horseman's Reins on Monday, so both my 80's have the mount now.

Blizzcon Day 2 - Art Panel

The art panel was a blast.  We got a preview of art from the various new zones, a glimpse at how the art team develops the props that each faction uses, dungeon building, as well as a look at the new opening screen.

Blizzcon Day 1 Away

First day is off to a start.  Chris Metzen had a great intro.  Geeks rule.  The Dungeon and Raid panel gave out some good info, and a preview of some the raids and dungeon coming in 4.1.  The Lore and quest panel gave out a lot of hints and spoilers in their Q&A.  The entries in the costume and dance contests were great.  Looking forward to tomorrow.

Patch 4.0.1 Suggestions.

So far, so good.  I tried out a few of my characters, and here are some suggestions to help you get your characters up to speed.

1) Get your glyphs.  Review all of the glyphs for your class and see which ones you want to use based on your spec.

2) Visit the class trainer.  No matter what level you are, you probably have at least 1 new skill to learn.

3) Review all your spells and abilities.  A lot of spells and abilities have had some type of change done to them.  Your are playing a whole new class essentially.

4) Respec.  All of your talents have been zeroized and all the trees are brand new.

5) Be patient.  If your performance is not at the level it was before the patch, Blizzard will see this and make adjustments.  You can also post on the offical forums and describe what you are seeing.  Make sure you include as much detail as possible.  What you were doing, what abilities you used, etc.   Just saying you are doing less damage, for example, will not be very helpful.

6) Have fun.  Everything is changing. Take some time and learn the game anew.

Welcome to a new world

Patch 4.0.1 drops tonight, and almost everything changes.  All the class, profession, equipment mechanics change.  Sometime between Thanksgiving and Dec 7, we'll see patch 4.0.3 drop which will change the appearance of the world and redo all the quests.  Anyway, I'm looking forward to trying out all my characters with the new class abilities, and talents.

Character progression -

Strumwulf has reached 350 in engineering, and is starting on the Northrend recipes.
Ksenjai is learning Inscription, and is rocketing through it with the help of Kiriann, who is leveling and picking herbs along the way.
Paksenarrion has joined the Scryers and is working on her leatherworking and enchanting.
Greigol has become Yekaterina and still plugging at at the Dalaran dailies.
Karmag has reached level 71, and Honored with the Kulak.

Hope everyone has a good night, and fun adventuring on the morrow.

I've picked up several achievements for my characters this weekend.  Strumwulf finally made it into Zul'Gurub and took down Hakkar for the Raid Achievement and finished up Classic Raider, as well as defeating Malygos to earn his Champion of the Frozen North title.  He also made his way through the Scarlet Monastery, Wailing Caverns and Ragefire Chasm to earn the Classic Dungeonmaster achievement.  He's 370 of 700 quests into earning the Kalimdor Loremaster.

Paksenarrion reached level 60, and Karmag, my new Orc Death Knight reached 70.   I'm working on getting Karmag to level 75 so I can finish the Echo Isles event before it goes away.

Greigol fished up a Giant Rat from the Dalaran Sewers.

Have fun and exciting travels.
