Pyo’s Patchnotes YaYs, Boos, and Mehs part 1- Patch 3.2

A post in which the ever popular- and slightly insane- Pyoska shares what she is looking forward to and dreading in upcoming patches.  Today’s patch- 3.2!

YaYs!

-New druid art for cat and bear forms has been added. There are now five unique color schemes for each form and faction. Changing hair color (Night Elves) or skin tone (Tauren) via the barbershop will change the look of one’s cat and bear forms:  all I really have to say to this is- ITS ABOUT TIME YOU FIXED TAUREN CATFORM BLIZZARD!  No more looking like a mauled wyvern with bad hair.  And, for the record, I am very glad they kept the horns.  -waits eagerly for Tree of Life and Moonkin forms to be prettied up-

-Northrend Children’s Week has arrived in Dalaran! Players can find out more by visiting the Eventide District:  new pets?!  And where’s this kid gonna drag me off to this time?

-Tauren now have the option of changing skin tone by visiting the barber shop:  I’m pretty happy with Koko’s skin color (a light cinnamon shade), but its nice to have the option, especially with the new animal forms.

-Flying over Dalaran and Wintergrasp is now possible so long as players keep a healthy distance above the ground:  WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO no more crash and burn over Wintergrasp!

-The ravasaur trainer Mor’vek has returned to Un’Goro and will offer to help Horde players raise and train a Venomhide Ravasaur as a mount… if they can survive the creature’s deadly poison:  -blink blink-  Yep.  Its about time.  Alliance had the Wintersaber Trainers for far too long without a Horde counterpart.  -makes the GIMME hands-

-All new Argent Crusader daily quests and rewards have been added for players with the Crusader title. Rewards include a new Argent Crusader banner and tabard (which can port players to the tournament grounds), a mounted squire (can periodically run bank, mail or vendor errands for the player), a paladin-exclusive Argent Crusader Charger mount, and new heirloom items:  New Heriloom Items?  Guess my baby Shaman is getting leveled faster now.  New Banner?  Pretty Cool.  New Tabard?  Meh.  Mounted Squire?  WANT!!!!!!!! Wantwantwant. 

-A customizable totem bar will now be available for shaman allowing the storing of 4 different totems. These totems can be placed on the ground at once in one global cooldown for the combined mana cost of all 4 totems: Shaman everywhere REJOICE!

Boos! 

– Lifebloom: The final heal that occurs when this spell blooms has been reduced by 20% on the base and on the spell power coefficient:  WTF BLIZZ.  STOP.  NERFING.  LIFEBLOOM.  GODDAMNYOU.  -pout-

-Innervate: Duration reduced to 10 seconds, and cooldown reduced to 3 minutes. This means each use of Innervate will give half as much mana as before, but it will be available twice as often:  I saw this coming.  Honestly, Innervate is godlike now, it probably needed a nerf.  Will Shaman stop crying?  Probably not.  But, maybe they’ll cry less now.

Mehs:

-The local Postal Service has grown tired of walking so far each day to collect mail and have decided to install a large number of new mailboxes to Stormwind, Undercity, Darnassus and Orgrimmar:  -shrugs-  I have a husband that’s an engineer.  If I REALLY need a mailbox that badly, I’ll get him to drop one.

FOR THE HORDE!

    Mailboxes – Oh… myGOD! This is SO overdue! There are mailboxes everyfreakingwhere in Silvermoon, which is really nice because if some asshat on his ginormous mount is standing on top of the mailbox, AFK (of course), you don’t have to run across town or over to the next town to check your mail or mail stuff. Stormwind has two that I know of (and I only found the one in Old Town by accident). UC and Org I only know of one each…? Darnassus isn’t such a huge deal *for me* because there are a couple fairly close, and I haven’t had the problems there with people stacking up on the mailboxes, but OMG UC and Org are horrid for that! I have personally wanted this for longer than I even want to think about! =)
    *does a little happydance*
