Since I have failed to go back to bed, I figured I’d go ahead and watch the “World of Warcraft Preview” session on the BlizzCon Virtual Ticket Stream. Presumably, this is more information on the upcoming Mists of Pandaria (MoP) expansion.
Hah! MoP! I have amused myself.
I’m going to handle this as a live blog again, largely because I am too sleepy to organize my thoughts.
By the way, I’ve been using US Pacific times in order to match the BlizzCon schedule. It’s actually three hours later where I am.
Yesterday it suddenly smacked me upside the head that BlizzCon is today and tomorrow. I have no idea how I managed to forget that, but I suspect that Katie MacAlister is partly to blame.
Void Storage is a handy new feature coming in Patch 4.3. Essentially, it’s long-term item storage with some restrictions, up to 80 items, that you pay for an item at a time.
First, the prices. NOTE: These may change! At the moment you pay 100 gold to unlock Void Storage and 25 gold for each item you deposit. Withdrawing an item is free. [source]
A number of people on the Public Test Realms (PTR) keep asking: What is Void Storage good for? My answer: You must not be much of a pack rat if you need to ask that. *grin*
I present for your consideration the Time-Twisted Nightsaber, a new level 85 non-elite cat that occurs in the Patch 4.3 End Time dungeon.
This cat actually represents not one but two new tameable pet looks: white with stripes and white with spots, and both of them are shiny with glowing red eyes, much like the Cursed Offspring of Har’koa.
This cat occurs in two different colors and does not switch between them. In other words, if you tame one with stripes you will always have one with stripes. The spotted and striped versions are technically different creatures (different IDs), they just happen to have the same name.
I’ve been on the Public Test Realm today playing with the upcoming transmogrification feature in Patch 4.3. I’ve had an (almost) complete set of Bloodlust armor sitting in my bank since … err … 2005, I believe? … just waiting for this feature. (Somewhere along the way I accidentally sold the bracers, though. Gotta pick up some new ones fast!)
Mama Druid was kind enough to share some transmog resources with me. I am particularly impressed with The Visual Roleplay Gear List. Hunters should definitely check out the page of Stylish Mail. I’m considering picking up the Sundered set too. The Nether Trident really pulls it together for me.
