Facing Requirements

Strict facing requirements can be frustrating to deal with, especially in hectic Raid combat or PvP environments. In order to ease this frustration, we decided to remove or significantly loosen the facing requirements of all attacks that required the player to be behind their target.

Druid: Shred no longer requires the Druid to be behind the target.
Rogue: Ambush no longer requires the Rogue to be behind the target.
Rogue (Subtlety): Backstab can now be used on either side of the target, in addition to behind the target.

Life is good!

What? There was more stuff? Wait a minute.

Cat? Cat? They say there was more stuff in the patch notes.

Apparently to a Cat this IS an in depth analysis I guess. Cat? ANYTHING else?

No more Mangle for kitties.

Sorry, I thought she had more. She says this is it.

I guess this is: A Lazy Cat’s Glance at the Warlords of Draenor Alpha Patch Notes

Anything else to add Cat?

YAY YAY YAY!

Yeah, again I’m sorry. I thought she really … you know … read them all. I jumped the gun I guess. I apologize.

scarypicHere. How about I add a bonus scary picture. I KNOW! How scary is that! For today? The rest of my life? I guess we’ll find out.

Not Just Another Pretty Face

undeadFirst, I should get this out of the way. If you’ve read many of my posts you may already know this. I am low maintenance. I always have been. I was one of those kids that you could give a cardboard box and she’d entertain herself for hours. I don’t know if that speaks to a lack of IQ or a great imagination. Depends on who you ask.

There is only one, ONE beef I have with Blizzard after just leveling a character to 85. CRZ … that’s it. I really didn’t WANT anything other than another expansion. I thought new character models would be nice for those who wanted them but I didn’t really care one way or the other … I thought.

When I watched the art panel I could see trouble coming. Look at that Forsaken! OH! OH! And the Orcs! And the Gnomes! And the Dwarfs! I have to have one of each! I need one of everyone! And I don’t even want to think what will happen if they improve the Human Male, Cat will be uncontrollable!

And Sasche has been mooning around after seeing that handsome Forsaken up there saying, I wonder what Frank will look like … I wonder if he remembers me, giggle … sigh.

I have my eleven slots full … what to do … I know! I see Fenris is to merge/blend/coalesce whatever they’re calling it with Dragonblight, that’s it! I will invade Dragonblight and when they come together I’ll have 22 slots.

Let’s see … I need a Orc and a Goblin … oh and maybe … yeah, getting ready for those Warlords is going to be a ton of work, I’d best get busy.

My only concern is, am I going to recognize Cat, Sasche and Cim when Warlords gets here? I know, I’ll tell them to hold up signs when I first login. You know, like they’re my driver or something picking me up at the airport. Yeah … that’ll work.

Okay, got to go agonize in the character creation screen over my Orc.

The Warlords of Draenor Oh My!

mapOkay, I’m really, really excited about this expansion … yeah … okay, it’s true I would have bought it if it had been Corgis Unleashed but this is SO much better. To get real live hard facts about it, as always, you should look elsewhere.

What excited me the most was when Chris Metzen addressed a question about why no Emerald Dream Expansion. He said they had many, many expansion set ideas and they would keep churning them out as long as we wanted. Okay, I’m paraphrasing but whew, I got a little spooked by that level 100 thing but according to Metzen they’ve no plans to end WoW on a nice round number.

So garrisons, boosts to level 90 for one character, bag enhancements, character model updates and pretty pictures!

steamI know! How cool is Draenor! I can’t wait to get there except I see in that one shot that stupidhead Gulp Frog has followed me to Draenor to mock me. Damn that frog.
