Well the new patch came in today and in keeping with the usual practice of Blizzard, it managed to eat my favourite addons for breakfast. The main one I use (OPie) is nonfunctioning and the author is currently on holidays for a few weeks. I’d hate to be that person when they check their email in a few weeks.

So. In light of the fact that my subscription is up for renewal today, I figure now is as good a time as any to take a break for a few weeks. City of Heroes can now be played on a Mac so now might be a good time to check in on that again briefly. It can usually only keep my attention for a few weeks anyway, but I always have fun with it. There is, of course, always that strange world outside of gaming that I could explore… maybe. Regardless, at this moment I really can’t face sorting out addons and possibly changing my playstyle once again. Tears, torn hair, and bad language would be involved.

Catch you in a few weeks. In the meantime, patch notes to chew on are here: http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/patchnotes

Fantastic new change coming in the new patch for miners:

Mining veins and deposits no longer require multiple hits to receive all the ore. Players will receive around the same amount of ore, stone, and gems they would have received from multiple hits.

I have only one thing to say: Oh thank God!!!

Woot! Everybody will be pleased to hear that Blizzard will be making some changes to old instances in the next patch to help us solo them better.

We’ve made some changes to several dungeons to allow easier access for players in the upcoming patch.

The ritual objects that used to require 3 players to activate in Blackrock Spire and Uldaman now only require 1.
You no longer need quintessence to summon Majordomo Executus.
You no longer need the Scepter of Celebras to teleport to the final section of Maraudon.
You no longer need the Mallet of Zul’Farrak to summon Gahz’rilla.

The Scepter and Mallet both turn into actual weapons.

Woot! Thank God! Huzzah! And so forth…

I’ve still got heaps to do here, but the basic operation of this site is up and running now and I won’t be making any big huge changes. I’ve changed the settings so that anyone can register and start publishing posts, so you should do that soon in case you see something interesting you want to pass along, write up what macros you’re using, post a screenshot or anything like that.

Go here to register.

I’ll nag everyone for awhile and then turn off the “anyone can register” thing since it’s only a matter of time before spammers find this site and start making 5 billion posts about where to buy viagra.

More addon updates, but not many this time.
