And now for something completely different...

Hi Friend,

I know you are a huge fan of WoW and you will do whatever you have to do to be UB3R 1337 H4X0RZ , so I am letting you in on a secret. Before you get suspicious, this doesn't involve gold-farming, powerleveling services or anything that costs you money.

The Alien has entered the the Building

After two weeks of waiting and going on minimal WoW status, I just can't resist sharing my new computer :) Everyone has been Ooohing and Ahhhing over it since the FedEx guy brought it over yesterday.

Our WotLK Wish List

As I said in my previous post, my theme for the next week or so will be Wrath of the Lich King. People are thinking alot about it these days, what with the furor of 2.4 dying down and the realization that there will be nothing new to do until the expansion hits the shelves. Unfortunately, this dead zone is also coinciding with the summer months, when more players tend to drift away to greener pastures (and greener lawns, heh). I hear lots of talk about taking breaks for awhile, so perhaps there's also some burnout setting in.

Shattered Sun: What Does it Mean?

My next few posts are going to be focused on a recurring theme: the upcoming expansion. Personally, I don't think we're going to see a release until the end of the year, possibly even January next year. That's because they just recently went to Alpha, so I would estimate Beta starting in Aug/Sept and release following 3-5 months after that. Nonetheless, I find myself thinking about Lich King quite a bit because it's looming on the horizon. It doesn't help that they released a slew of new tidbits this past week and I'm sure we'll see more as we get closer to the Beta.

Craptop City, Party of One

Tonight as I write, I'm using my infamous craptop (infamous to friends and guildmates at least). On Saturday night my regular PC blew it's second power supply in three months. I was actually talking on Vent to my buddy Squorg about my computer woes when a burning smell drifted to my nostrils. Thinking someone was mercilessly torching some unsuspecting food item in the kitchen, I continued my conversation with no thoughts of investigating. A few minutes later my screen went black as the burning smell started to take on a decidedly plastic-infused odor. Needless to say, this story does not have a happy ending.

Crafting Goodies in 2.4.2

New patch notes have been posted recently from the PTR and I've just copied my own characters to the Test Realm to analyze them more fully. Some are pretty obvious, so I thought I'd share my thoughts on these in the interim:

  • All 23-hour profession cooldowns are now 20-hour cooldowns.

  • All 4-day cooldowns are now 3 days, 20 hours.
