WoW March Patch Notes

[World of Warcraft] I read over the patch notes for the upcoming (when??) patch for WoW. I’m glad to see it is very long. I’ll make some comments here on the notes and their impact on me and my desire to reactivate my account:

“Diremaul, a new dungeon for players level 56-60”: No impact at all. There is a lot of high level content out there for me.

“Meeting Stones are located outside of each dungeon to help players find a group to adventure with in the dungeon.”: Well, this looks interesting. After playing in the CoH static group I am really finding out how much I am tired of soloing. If this makes it less painless to find a group for me, that is a plus. However, it still leaves me at the mercy of stupid players.

“All dungeons now have a cap on group size to limit the number of players that may enter the dungeon.”: No impact.

“General”: Nothing here impacts me.

“PvP”: No impact here either.

“Druid, Hunter, Mage, Paladin, Priest, Warlock, Warrior changes”: No impact to me.

“Rogues changes”: Nothing here seems like a bid deal to me as a Rogue. I did not have my lockpicking up to a point that I was struggling for ways to improve it, but it is nice to see more ways added.

“Shaman changes”: All changes seem minor, nothing makes me want to play my Shaman.

“Monster changes”: Nothing here appears to have an impact on my play and levels.

“Item changes”: Holy cow I did not know there are so many items in this game I have never heard of. Since I never heard of them, the changes really mean nothing to me.

“Profession changes”: Sama as the item changes.

“Raids and Dungeons”: No impact to me.

“Quests”:Lots of changes there which is good, but most of them are above me so I had nothing to complain about before. I do like the added Dungeon description in the quest log.

“Pets, Faction and Reputation”: Meh.

“User Interfaces changes”: Lots of nice stuff here. Improvements are good to see. I still don’t understand the removal of /bug from the game. It seemed like a nice painless way to report a bug. How many people would do that, but would not bother to go to the website later to report it? I bet a lot of people would.

“World Environment”: Nothing really of note to me.

“Flight Paths”: Nothing of note here either.

“Bug Fixes”: Lots of them, and good to see. However the most important issue for me: server instability and downtown is not listed in the notes at all.

Account will remain inactive until I see the improvements in the servers that I want to see.
