Temporary slow down on mounts after 70

Temporary slow down on mounts after 70

By now you have probably already read this, but I felt like sharing around anyway…

Guess I need a pet pally again…

Ghostcrawler says:

Any items or enchants that affect mounted speed will no longer affect any character over level 70. This includes the Riding Crop, Mithril Spurs, Riding Glove Enchant, Carrot on a Stick, Skybreaker Whip and all similar effects. Talents or spells that affect mounted speed will continue to do. In part, we thought it had become a hassle for players to have to equip (or macro) riding trinkets. We have new plans for how to improve mounted speed that we will unveil eventually.

Gnomer & Out!

Premature Speculation

Premature Speculation

I just love the title of this post, which is in fact the only reason I am writing it.

I just saw the two words used in conjunction by Karthis from Of Teeth and Claws in a comment to The Rambling Bear’s post It’s Raining. I Swear!

I thought it really summed up the whole WoLK speculation thing.

A WoLK bedroom scene

A few moments of heated grunting and cheering, followed by hours or days of disappointment.

Was it good for you?

No, I am a Mage and it sucked, how about you?

No I am a <insert class here> and it sucked for me too!

Novelty Glyphs

Glyph Interface from the Hunter's Mark WoLK screenshots

I guess one thing that inspires me about the coming glyphs in WoLK, is the flexibility that this will give Blizzard to give us minor tweaks to things, even if they are cosmetic. Most likely they will need to increase the number of minor glyphs that are usable to satisfy my desires, but at least they have given me 2 slots to begin with.

So if I could add some novelty glyphs into the game, what would I add? (more…)

Negative Achievements

It started over at Larisa’s Inn (well to my knowledge) and I see it has cropped up again over at Black Grimoire with Ideas for Negative Achievements

My favorites so far…

Pink Pigtail Inn
Apprentice dc:er. The 50th time you’ll advance to Expert.

Black Grimoire
Guardian of the Cave – You have proven your grasp of tactics by spending 50 AVs defending your home base. The one the other side can’t capture. So your really not defending anything. But who cares, you still get honor just like all the people taking towers, killing players, and defeating generals. Alternately can be awarded if the bot helping you pretend to be active kills 1,000 rams or wolves.

Here are a couple that I can think of:

Pre-WoLK Currency

OK, so my post on When is enough, enough? got me wondering.
If our gear is going to be redundant 1 hour after the release of WoLK, then where is the future value of “stock” that can be squirrelled away waiting for the release. (more…)

When is enough, enough?

Gear that is!

WoLK is approaching and our hard earned level 70 epics will soon be worth nothing bu the price of a shard, or small vendor change.

Arguments are erupting across the Blogsphere over “welfare epics”, whether PvE via badges or PvP via honor.

Is it worth running Kara week in week out, hitting every daily heroic to pickup the badges to buy the gear to run the raids that had the gear that isn’t as good as the gear you just bought with your badges? (more…)
