I feel like there's so much I'm forgetting to do, but I'm just not going to stress about it and go with the flow. I know I've visited all the places I love, and I'll always have those memories. There are millions of screenshots scattered around the internet so no one will ever truly forget what some of the old places looked like. All in all I'm just ridiculously excited and can't wait to see the changes. I'm really looking forward to my new pets and new characters.

My only real preparations have been to drop Rancid my Jormungar off at that cave in Dragonblight. He's going in there to molt and tomorrow when I pick him up he'll be a pretty new colour.

Then tonight when I log out I'll leave Veph in Skettis just in case they don't port us back to our racial capital cities. Gezzarak is my first tame tomorrow for sure.

It's a weirdly serene feeling knowing when the world will end, just wish I had the day off work. The apocalypse is reason enough to call in sick right?

Nah, you can keep working as the landscape falls apart right?

Well I could try but if I get hit by debirs or fall into a lava vent I'll sue their asses.

Just read this thread properly, Wednesday for the EU, so I got an extra day before the world starts to curmble around me.

I'm not working tomorrow, but I know it's going to be absolute hell waiting for the servers to come back up. :lol: I almost wish I was so I would have that to occupy my mind instead of staring at my computer fidgeting to play.

I have to admit that I'm a smidgen jealous of everyone getting to experience all the fun rollup-to-Cata events. On the other hand, I've done the sitting around on patch day obsessively asking "are the servers up now? How about now?" routine enough times that I won't miss it this round.

/happily lives in a world where tomorrow is NOT a patch day
/obsessively counts the days until post-finals "gift" of Cataclysm


>.> Someone ought to make postcards of all the awesome new tamings they do, for those of us who are waiting for Cata to drop before we resub.

Ahem. I admire your optimism! And I hope the same, for everyone's sakes. But I'd still make sure you have some activity lined up to keep you busy, yeah?

I'm almost happy that I am working. Something to keep my brain occupied and me earning money. Yep.

*eyeballs her schedule and frowns* Bleh! Bad enough it's patch day and Tuesday, but I get the late lunch. Four hungry hours between breakfast and lunch and little but thoughts of warp stalkers and foxes to keep my brain sane against rumbling stomachs and holiday music.

Holiday + retail = lack of sanity

Class trainers in Dalaran where portals once were
New race-class combinations (excluding worgen/goblin)
New Gnome/Troll starting areas
Changes to existing zones
New cata load screens
New cata intro cinematic

I thought the same during Wrath and really upset some people. I may be able to shunt the existing site into a subdirectory, though, so at least it's accessible.

Sheesh. I should have done all this bookkeeping stuff last week.

Azeroth,

You were amazing as I knew you. You shaped and guided the good players there are today, tolerated the bad and coexisted with the average. You've tolerated Barrens chat, RealID issues, zombie invasions and more.

You have faced demons and scourge, and with the heroes you've created, we faced them off. Yet there was one threat we could not protect you from. The ravaging of Deathwing, and for that, we apologize. Yet...From the ashes, you still rose, still fought, still bore hope for us. You reminded us to never give up, that despite the worst of it, we will survive.

And for that, we thank you, Azeroth. Home of the Horde and Alliance, two separate factions...Yet, we are all Azerothians.

R.I.P Old Azeroth

Now I know what I'm doing tomorrow (or when the servers come back up)... other than getting new pets for my Hunter. If the Goblin Quartermaster becomes available, then I'll probably be farming rep for them on Nekthr. If not, then I'll finish up rep grinds for my Troll Shaman.

/locates a handy-dandy Corehound
/convinces it to stand still with its mouth open
/hangs a sign around its neck, an arrow pointing up at the cavernous maw with "complaints" scrawled under it

There you go Mania, the system to handle complaints is all set up for tomorrow! ;) (More seriously: *hug!* You're doing EVERYONE a tremendous favor with all your hard work, if someone wants to give you grief for it not being ABSOLUTELY PERFECT they can either pay you to make this your full-time job or, well, talk to the complaints puppy above.)
