Today is the last day before everything is changed for good.

Quote:
Let's confirm this, yes, Patch 4.0.3a will be deployed on live servers this week and will change the world of Azeroth forever. You only have a few hours left to say good bye to the old world (and farm try to get that stupid mount in Zul'gurub) before Deathwing decides that it needs a new look. All the information and the official patch notes are available below.

Get ready for the biggest change you ever witnessed in World of Warcraft, and enjoy!

dangit, I tried one last time this morning on ZG, no mount, no turtle tome (i did get the epic Nat Pagle's beating stick though). I guess thats a plus...

I'm excited for my new Ancient Sea Turtle though. Thats pretty neat, or the foxes possibly.

Heh one more post. This is going to suck for 2 weeks not being able to FLY in Azeroth, but yet no portals from Dalaran anymore. Might as well get ready to spam for ports more often

Wtf?! They got rid of the portals why?

Because blizzard wants old cities to be populated.

That's what I keep asking myself. The answer they gave not a good one. I can only hope if the players make a big enough stink about it then they will bring them back. Alot of alts are in dal or shat because it's easier to get from one part of the world to the next.

Because with them putting trainers and AH in shatt/dal the portals aren't really needed anymore. This also entices the mage business.

Chrizesu and Erwil answered it. The portals won't be necessary for leveling through the content and the trainers will be readily accessible right there. (Think of it - how often do you really use the Shattrath portals now?)

Aww, I don't have enough time for another ZG run on my main before it's gone for good. Oh well, I guess I could get in one more mount run on mine and my bf's main alts. At least I have the raptor on my main. I really wanted the tiger though.

Besides that, I'm looking forward to the changes. My biggest decision is going to be desiding which server to put my Undead Hunter on. I have room on Alterac, and then my alts can send her stuff, like money, but another Petopian wouldn't be bad either. I was going to make my Troll Druid on Nesingwary too ...

Decisions decisions.

The boats and zeppelins got moved more inside the cities for a reason; it's not THAT big a deal, honestly. Plus we don't want mages to become redundant!

Also, here are the hunter notes:

Quote:
All special attacks based on weapon damage (except Scattershot) are now normalized.
Scare Beast is now available at level 36, up from level 14, and has had its training cost updated.
Deterrence is now available at level 78, up from level 36, and has had its training cost updated.
Disengage is now available at level 14, down from level 78, and has had its training cost updated.

Glyphs
The level requirements for glyphs that affect Scare Beast, Deterrence, and Disengage have been altered to correspond with the level changes of these abilities.

Bug Fixes
The Core Hound pet ability Ancient Hysteria now places its own unique debuff on affected players that has the same effect as Sated and Exhaustion.
Certain pets should no longer forget how to Dash.


GOOD NEWS that disengage dropped again. Deterrence is amazing, but I'm glad to see this swap.

Edit to add other stuff I missed. THE DASH BUG IS GETTING FIXED, YAY! :D And hooray for puppy lust fixes too!

I'm surprised there wasn't an Aspect of the Cheetah level drop as well...it's in such a bizarre place right now since you don't get it until after you have a mount...and it was always that ability that was a great help to get before acquiring a mount, after that it's use is more limited.

Yeah, the zep tower is inside Org now. The FP is near there and is closer to the main gate now, I think. I was very disoriented. >_<

Found the new ancient hysteria debuff! It's Insanity. It still doesn't apply to the pet, though (as it shouldn't). Will have to check after the patch at some point, I think, to see if the debuff on pets was removed from bloodlust/heroism.

Anyone know when the EU realms will get this patch? I don't want to change Petopia out from underneath them.

I think their patch day is Wednesday, so they're a day behind.

That's good. I won't have to maintain double data for very long then. Thanks!
