I don’t usually like to post too many OOC articles close together, however, there really isn’t a whole lot I can write about my characters right now with their storylines because I’ve been too busy playing the game. I know that I really have been having a real enjoyable time since the 6.1 patch has gone live.
I was real surprised at how much better my Blood Elves looked on “live” than they did in the PTR – I was very pleased that I didn’t have to spend a fortune running back and forth to the Barber Shop to get face lifts or changes in hairstyles. The only complaint I have about the hairstyles right now is the fact that they really didn’t do justice to the hair color for BLACK – the new black appears to be mostly GRAY – not exactly the thing that I wanted my main to be wearing at this stage in his life- he’s mature in age, however, I didn’t think that he was that old. Oh well, I hope that it gets fixed in the near future, however, it’s not so bad that I can’t get used to it as it is right now.
Oh my, the changes to the male Night Elf is awesome. I can finally log back in on my Alliance main without cringing every time he runs across and area. Now, he doesn’t look like an albatross trying to get airborne with clipped wings. It is going to be a real pleasure to get back on that character too. I know that I could have turned the “old” models back on and continued playing, however, I liked so many of the other models that I didn’t want to have to go through that constant switching back and forth.
Heirlooms!! Oh my, that has been such a bonus that I find it really hard not to be bouncing in my chair when I load a character on that doesn’t have them yet – that heirloom tab has got to be the best thing to happen for me in-game that I am going to totally enjoy. I know that when I first saw it in the PTR I was tickled to death and even had to transfer over a couple of my alts to make sure that it worked the way that Blizzard said it would. So, it was with real nervous excitement that I awaited the drop on the 24th to try everything out “live” and I was definitely not disappointed.
I haven’t really had the chance to get started on all of the new stuff in regard to my Garrisons just yet because I’ve been busy jumping from character to character getting everything setup. I am looking forward to the jukebox quests and the battle pets – well, I’ll get to them this week anyway. I really like the changes that I have been able to take advantage of so far and I think that it has definitely added quite a bit to the things that I want to do with my Garrisons now.
Well, I do know that I will probably have quite a bit of time to play World of Warcraft for the next few days with the continuous snowfall that we seem to be experiencing at the moment. It started snowing yesterday morning and it appears as though it really hasn’t stopped yet and isn’t expected too until sometime on Monday. Good thing we got everything all stocked up before this latest round of snow started because my spouse and I both hate driving in this stuff.
Hope everyone is having as much fun with the new patch and changes in-game that I am currently having . I definitely hope to be able to start my regular writing schedule in the next couple of days too, lots of things to get caught up on. I can now feel more comfortable in getting my MyRolePlay storylines reinstalled on my characters after my latest system failure a few months back – really didn’t feel like putting them all back in when I wasn’t exactly sure that I was going to have more trouble. See you all later.
