Looks like the Rusted & Ironbound Proto-drakes will still be achievable for some time yet. Blizzard’s explanation of their change of heart was posted by Eyonix:

After further discussion, we decided not to remove the rusted and ironbound proto-drake rewards for the normal and heroic Glory of the Ulduar Raider meta achievements when patch 3.2, Call of the Crusade, launches, and currently have no plans to remove them in the foreseeable future. However, we will continue to evaluate the situation and if a decision is made to remove these rewards at any point in the future, we’ll provide a one month warning so players will have time to make some final attempts.

So there’s still time to try for them. The Glory of the Ulduar Raider is worth a shot I think & that will score you the Rusted one which I’ve always preferred anyway.

Well I have been flapping around the Storm peaks for a few days now and still no luck.

But I’m not giving up yet :)

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!!!
