Post-Patch Planning

Real life and WoW have conspired against blogging in the past 48 hours, but that doesn't mean I haven't been thinking about you all. I've also been thinking about what I'm going to do first once patch 2.3 hits. I'm sure I'm not the only one compiling a list, but here's mine:

Update my mods.
Let's face it: even with the Ace Updater, mod tweaking could take up most of Tuesday night.

Respec my mage from arcane to fire.
Arcane's been fun, but the nerfs to the Lightning Capacitor and the Mystic Skyfire Diamond have put at least a temporary nail in the coffin on its viability for PvE raiding. It looks like we may see significant mage changes down the road, but for now, I'm looking to scrounge up 146 spell hit rating by a combination of regemming my current gear and swapping out some of my current pieces for +hit gear I've kept in my bank.

Buy some new gear with Badges of Justice.
I'll need 60 to purchase a Voodoo-woven Belt, which should help with the spell hit.

Buy my shadow priest her heroic keys.
She's made a lot of trips to Karazhan and even to SSC, but getting revered with all the factions was just too much of a time sink. I will have to remember to actually go buy the keys themselves, though. Thankfully they're cheap.

Go talk to The Rokk in Lower City and start the cooking daily quests.
Rogues are really going to need the Spicy Hot Talbuk recipe, which gives 20 hit rating, and hunters will be all over the new pet food Kibler's Bits. Skullfish Soup isn't bad either, and Stormchops will finally give us a use for Lightning Eels.

Take my shaman to Dustwallow Marsh.
With a bunch of new quests in the zone, I'll want to pick up the flight point at Mudsprocket, then head out to Tabetha's once-remote shack. All the XP changes should make leveling him much faster, and the new content out there looks fun.

Go fishing.
Crates and trunks you fish up in 2.3 will have a chance to contain a Weather-Beaten Journal, which will let us track fishing nodes on the minimap.

Head out to Zul'Aman.
My 25-man raid is still struggling to take down Vashj, but the 10-man Karazhan raid I ran back in the spring is reforming for our usual Saturday runs. The only question now is whether we'll try and squeeze a second day in to take advantage of ZA's 3.5 day reset. I'll also need to remember to stop and talk to Budd Nedreck outside the instance to get the quest for my Tattered Hexcloth Sack. (Free 20-slot bag? Yes and thank you.)

So there you have it: a compulsive raider and altoholic's to-do list. But why stop there when I can survey the GMW readers?

What's on your list of things to do as soon as the patch hits?

I'm looking forward to the new incentives to show my alts the love they deserve!

As well as running around and nabbing the new flight points on my main, just because.

Not so much looking forward to the inevitable breaking-of-the-addons, but eh.

Someone said...

Mostly, level my alts, although, ironically, next tuesday my subscription ends and I will most likely not renew it for a couple months due to work. Maybe... :)

rdutley said...

Mostly like everyone else. Alts, farming, PvP, then some more farming for good measure.

Girl Meets WoW said...

Pike, I hadn't even thought of the flight points. Another thing to add to the "GMW is a compulsive completionist" list...
Someone, best of luck out there in the real world.
Rdutley, sometimes I don't know how people who PvP with their mains on top of everything else manage it.

Michael said...

I'd be curious to hear more about your Shadow Priest. That's my main at the moment and I'm concerned about my amount of spell damage before stepping into Kara and Gruuls.

And I'll be working on alts as well with the new patch...huzzah!

Messyah said...

Update my mods. - And that is providing that they are all updated.

Respec my mage from arcane to fire. - Fire does the most damage for sure, Frost is excellent for PvP, and Arcane is like the "utility" spec. Our all-Fire mage, Blastwave hit the Curator for an 11K+ fireball. Just watch your aggro. ;-)

Buy some new gear with Badges of Justice. I'm bent that they nerfed the 3-badge farm in Heroic Mech.

Go talk to The Rokk in Lower City and start the cooking daily quests. I'm stoked about this. All that cooking work finally will pay off. I am a 375 chef after all. :-)

Take my shaman to Dustwallow Marsh. - I'll get my priest there someday.

Go fishing. - This should nmake the cooking quests easier.

Head out to Zul'Aman. - We already have our raid group scheduled for Tuesday.

What's on your list of things to do as soon as the patch hits? - Since they are boosting Ferak statistics and Attack Power, I will be taking my Epic-geared Feline butt out to kill, Kill, KILL! I'll be doing BGs, shredding every squishy clothy I find. Muwahahahaaaaaaa

Messyah said...

Woops, that was supposed to be Feral, not Ferak. LOL

Galoheart said...

Looking forward to all the new things in 2.3.

What i'm not looking forward to us my UI addons gain been broken or not working. I've barely recovered from the last patch as it is.

LadyJessmyn said...

Well I didn't HAVE a to-do list until now...lol cooking quests...awesome can't wait:)

Lady-Jess said...

oh and i added your blog to my favs list on mine:)

Arren said...

I'm really looking forward to the new cooking recipes. I'm a recipe-aholic, which leads me to believe I'm functionally retarded as well since leveling fishing and cooking was as much fun as a swift kick to the teeth. But I figure since they're both maxed out, I may as well use them.

Guess I'll also dust off the ol' rogue alt and get him headed in the right direction instead of sitting fat, dumb and happy in Darnassus.

RCole said...

1) Buy my paladin 55k honor worth of Season 1 gear.
2) Buy my warlock a S1 weapon... maybe.
3) Figure out exactly what the chagnes mean to my Fury / Prot build warrior.
4) Cooking Daily quest FTW! I have two 375 cooks...
5) Erm...
6) Profit
