LAGGGGGGGGGGGGGG. Holy fucking shitballs Batman. That is my first major impression from when I logged on last night. There were apparently several servers down, so people decided to invade and spam trade chat until theirs came back up. It took me about 1.5 hours to get all of my mail, mill herbs, and turn them into inks. It usually takes me about 15 minutes. It was terrible. It was better this morning, so I was able to restock my glyphs. Thank god for QuickAuctions2. I got to the auctioneer with about 6 minutes until server restart. I got all 300 or so glyphs posted in that time.
TO DO LIST:
Northrend Childrens Quests: Last night my fiancee wanted to play WoW. Old computer + Patch day lag = no good. Tonight we are probably going to do the quests to get either the Gorloc or Wolvar pet. I will be choosing the Gorloc pet. I am not sure which she will choose, but she usually chooses something that I dont have. This will also be a nice little chunk of XP towards getting her another level.
Raptor Pet: Gonna go get me a raptor pet from Breanni in Dalaran. Not the real Breanni even though he plays on my server. The fake one that sells pointless pet accessories.
New Tournament Dailies: Gotta go try the new dailies. Probably more of the same old crap, but I need the seals. I am about 25 away from getting the mounted Squire who is basically a portable bank/vendor/mailbox. I think you can change the setting to one of the three every 12 hours. I will likely also help my fiancee with her Valiant Dailies so she can also become a champion.
Crusader's Colliseum: Definately need to hit this up. New instances are always fun to try out. It will also be nice that it drops epics no matter what setting you have it on. A bunch of guildies were fighting through the lag yesterday to test it out.
Heroics: Heroics of all kinds and sorts will be on the agenda for this weekend. I am going to be racking up as many emblems as possible and having a blast with my friends. 5 man instance are one of my favorite things in the game. Grabbing a few close friends, chatting, and smashing instances has always been great fun.
Make more gold: It is looking more and more like a lot of the glyph competition just flat left. I am selling a large chunk of my glyphs for 20 plus gold now when they were selling for between 3-10 gold a few weeks ago. I need to scan all of the glyphs to find out if there are any that arent being posted at all. I am making several thousand gold a day now, and the amount just seems to go up.
What are your first impressions of the patch? You guys hit up the new raid yet?
