First thing I noticed logging on was Rhyannon. I could see the difference in the character model right off the bat and she looks great!
After logging on you get a prompt about the new changes and a way to start the quest line for the invasion in Blasted Lands.
After I accepted my quest I was sad to see all the gaps in my bars :(
As a shaman healer though, I have to say it is kinda nice to have space for things other than totems everywhere!
Then I went off to check my bank and check out the Toy Box.
SPACE!!! Space to fill with more junk! It's really nice to have that trade goods tab too.
The new map with quest is nice and simple to use. I wish it wasn't as large, but I'll get used to it.
And you can't hate on the transparency when you are on the move!
Quick tip in case you are going crazy looking for this as I was. To remove the outlines go to your interface> display> and at the bottom you will see options for the outline. I made mine go bye bye.
Then I grabbed Rah and put him on follow and I did the invasion story line.
And got us a title:
And a cute little pet, which can be caged, by the way, for some extra gold when the expansion comes out.
When not bugging out I got a chance to do UBRS, which gives you a little taste of what's to come.
I noticed the healing changes but it was nothing too overwhelming that I couldn't handle. Most of my gear lost it's spirit and yet I have no mana regen problems what-so-ever. I'm currently at 587 spirit, with 2689 mana regen with a 565 ilvl. I went from having 50% mastery to 103% O.o once reforge was removed. MUST GET CRIT/HASTE GEAR ASAP! Other than the slower cast timese due to my loss of haste shaman healing remains much the same as before. I'm scared to go on my other characters though lol because I know they have not been as fortunate as Rhy.
You also get a chance to grab some 550 ilvl blues in UBRS, which can be disenchanted into the new enchanting mats and are selling for a butt load on the AH.
And last, but certainly not least, the new Horde mount! It's AWESOME! And I love the way my shaman looks riding it!
Over all not a bad patch day, but the day isn't over yet. Raid tonight should be fun and interesting and I'm keeping my fingers crossed for no resets during that time.
How has patch day been treating you guys? What do you love/hate? Let me know!
