OK, so I guess it's *really* beta. After spending about half an hour resetting my keybinds and trying to remember how to play, it took me another half an hour to figure out how to actually get to alternate Draenor because the starting quests don't actually work.
Just read the latest alpha patch notes. (http://www.mmo-champion.com/content...) I'm not going to read anymore patch notes until WoD launch. They're just pissing me off and making the xpac look like crap.
I was bored so I pre-ordered WoD and level boosted my rogue to 90 and finally, FINALLY, completed one of the alchemy specialization quests (transmute). Tossed leather tokens at the rogue and got two daggers from the TI vendor.
More often than not, whenever I name a new character in an MMO or other cRPG/cRPG-like game, I end up naming them in Quenya. I just figured out that Shadowsong (as in Maiev Shadowsong) translates to Lomelinde, which is another name for Tinúviel, so now I have a headcanon where Lúthien Tinúviel is a warden/demon hunter.
Oh man I can't believe I didn't have an authenticator on the account, I own 3! Luckily things worked out, but damn whoever got into my account probably had wet dream when the added my gold up. I usually have more than most medium sized guilds.
I realize Avenger's Shield is a straight-up rip of Captain America's signature move, so Captain America is kind of the ur-prot pally, but I also can't help wonder if Thor isn't the prototype ret pally, what with all the hammers and all :D
After reading down into the Class changes, WTF!? The hell they doing to Hunters? No Hunter's Mark or Distracting Shot? Removing Kill Shot from Survival is like removing Execute for Arms Warriors. *checks to see they didn't do that*
I was flagged on Timeless Isle from doing AV and some Hordie pally started dropping hammers on my head. I thought it was an accident, and I was trying to be nice and I tried to run away, but he stunned and dismounted me, so I had to open up a can of whoopass and pound him repeatedly in the face with my own hammers. Silly Hordie.
