BTW I am Quivane in Alpha, I bounce between Horde and Alliance (currently horde waiting for last zone to open for testing). In my time on Alpha, I enjoy closing Lua error windows and complaining how a child gave me a quest that sent me into a hive of GIANT BEES. I also included reloadui into my rotation due to the quest log/credit bug. I make a terrible quest companion because I have to stop a lot due to IRL.

Just wanted to remind everyone that one way you can help right now is to give feedback in the alpha forums!

Wain's started a thread to talk about the hunter pet revamps - if you feel strongly about any of the changes coming to pet models then this is a great way to add your voice. Even upvoting other comments in the thread shows that it matters to people.

I don't know if we're going to make a difference, but now's our best chance to try. :)

Another wave just went out, this time aimed seemingly at people with low-end PCs. They always do this near the end of alpha/beta to help get feedback on what effects don't show enough on low settings, what computers cease being able to run it, etc.

As such, I now have access. I'll be joining you guys in a few days. :) Will take a while to download. Then it's time to hope my computer can run it, which I suspect it can't. Lol

I upvoted a few posts. Honestly, I think updates are always better. I've yet to see a creature in any expansion get an upgrade I didn't think was vastly better.

But I can undestand sentimental people. And I do agree with the vast changes in color needing to be fixed.

Yeah, I'm overall pretty happy with the models themselves, I would just like the colours and patterns to be more faithful on a few of them which bear little to no resemblance to the originals. :(

We can't say that we didn't do our best. Hopefully Blizz has noticed or will notice the thread and will make changes :)

Yeah no prob! I feel like that thread had been kind of lost in one of the topics here so some people may not have seen it.

(I've also been trying to voice as much support as I can in any of the alpha threads dedicated to spec-locked artifact appearances - I feel that hunters especially should be allowed to use BM/MM looks interchangeably)

Just got the access like a day or two ago. I probably won't be posting much in near future because of studies, but hopefully more during summer.

Also as a first timer, do you guys know what is a more valuable form of feedback? Every single bug, overall flow and feel of a zone, raw numbers of a spec or something else?

Really anything will help. They have a bug reporting tool on the UI (You'll see it. It is very obvious) that you can use to report anything from bugs to numbers. You can also post on the official Alpha forums if you want to go more in depth with bug reports, suggestions, or your thoughts on something :)

The new bug reporting mechanisms are great to me. Every quest you turn in gives you a chance to mark Yes/No if you run into a bug, and a comment box. I mark No on every quest that I complete that works fine. I've done a lot of software testing, and seeing a bunch of "No, not bugged" is much more useful than no feedback at all. Even if nothing is bugged with a quest, I add comments if I thought something was off about the quest such as drop rates or spawn rates or if things were hard to figure out etc.

You also want to consider the entire state of the Alpha when you submit bugs. If something is available for testing, like quests, they want feedback on every aspect of it. However some things aren't full fleshed out yet, like rares still drop gray placeholder items because their loot hasn't been implemented yet. Usually with new Alpha patches, they will give a heads up on specific things they want feedback on. I am sure any feedback is welcome, but theres not much value in reporting on a system or aspect that isn't ready yet.

And remember, you have a voice just like anyone else. Whatever your personal experience and thoughts are will be valuable. They have a few sticky threads on the forums for some reporting guidelines as well, kinda lays out what kind of feedback is helpful for them.

I just got an alpha invite (first time in an alpha!), and am in the process of installing the absurdly big 40gig files. Will post character names whenever it finishes installing and I get someone made. Hell, I may even make some 1080p videos and upload em somewhere.

EDIT 1: Good lord the install size is rough. 50~ gigs, not 40 like advertised. Had to actually uninstall something so I could have enough room for the alpha. Fair warning for those who (hopefully) get in.

EDIT 2: That download took WAY too long, and I had to restart my computer about ten times because it forced my memory usage to 100% constantly, preventing me from doing ANYTHING. My hunters are on Anduin server; Kikanuu (Alliance) and Yugyug (Horde).

Is there a chat channel petopians are using already, when looking for/to help with stuff? if not, I'm going to stick with "petopia".

Not that I'm aware of. There hasn't been a need to coordinate things yet, but that doesn't necessarily mean that a chat wouldn't be useful :)
