Patch 5.0.4 stuff

Some thoughts...

Love the way the Ulduar guns go on the back of a dwarf. Perfect fit.

I like the quillen mount more than I thought I would, I might get the upgrade.

I'm amused that the formerly conquest trinkets are now better than some of the raid trinkets.

Small things:
1) The patch has turned the Mature Language Filter back on by default.
2) Opening mail no longer shows the item received in the chat window. I assume this is something to do with the new "loot window", which I've yet to see.
3) Enchant cast times seem to be much faster now!

They did some nice things to facilitate gnome sacrifices. Our gnome warlock's pet felhunter (now a floating eyeball) likes to randomly taunt the boss, even though it has no taunt, and get bitch-slapped, resulting in the gnome lock taking upwards of 300k damage via soul link.

While amusing, it's also quite annoying.

Lack of any resistance makes Hagara a bit interesting - you have to avoid getting the cold stacks now or she can 1-shot you. However, with a run-speed boost, she's easily kitable when spazzing.

Oh, and I seriously miss Righteous Defense. May be a deal-breaker for me as far as continuing to tank in MoP. That's been a core ability as long as I have played a Paladin tank, and was *the* reason I preferred pally over any of the other tanking classes.

Glad I kept that addon that turns it off then! :D

All the quests now give around 367 guild rep, dailies, level 84-85 at least, even those quests that usually give like 5 pts will now give full 367 guild rep..

There's no weekly cap so you can get exhalted in a matter of hours..

Those who needed classy achieve this is the time to do it..

Small things on this end (as of last night):
*Whenever my resto shaman had Water Shield active, and was inscribing glyphs into the slots, Water Shield would turn off (I don't know if it affects Lightning Shield, or someone else with Earth Shield on)
*Dark Phoenix mount (requires exalted w/ guild) is usable by my mage, who is revered (and by my other mage, who is neutral)
*The small "information interface" all over the companion pet area is fucking annoying and retarded. Took me about 10 minutes to figure out how to turn it off.

VuhDo no longer shows Blessings in the Buffs panel. Has anyone found a workaround for that?

Stoneform now turns your character grey, instead of just darkening your colour.

LFR trash is extremely frustrating now with 10 pets taunting constantly and no Righteous Defense. :<

That said, I'm loving how overpowered we seem to be at the moment. 50-60k absorb shields from Sacred Shield on Madness with a 67% physical damage reduction from ShotR makes Impale barely tickle. :D

When did Enchant Cloak - protection change from 250 armor to 30 stamina?

Any that you didn't have completed will be impossible to do until MoP gets released, as monks are now added to all of them.

Couple questions:

Did they keep the guild experience per quest at 30k (or whatever it was on beta?)

Is DS Normal/Heroic cross-realm enabled?

This is going to be interesting for the rage and QQ and rejoicing that will pour out on the earth like the wrath of hell...

Apparently they changed the DS Raider meta achieve, removing H Spine and H Madness. Logged in tonight to see that I had the achieve, and lo and behold, I had the mount as well. Checked the achieve, and those two were gone.

Wonder what my raid leader will do, since that is what he was pushing for (and since our MT is taking a GW2cation)

I love how you make me win arguments against a certain someone who is Always Right (except when he's drunk).

Weirdly, I'm not that happy :-/ We're barely at 4/8, and it was clear in my head we weren't meant to get the mount (like all the other Glory of the XXX Raider).

On a global scale, it seems insane that a guild that could barely field 2/7 HM in Firelands could, despite losing three top dps, reach for a Glory mount.
On a more personal scale, that means our intented foray in T11 "relax" achieves might get thrown in the back burner.

But hey, Blizzard's game. Not like I'm going throw a hissy fit over a mount :roll:

At the start of the DS, me and a guildy started a new social guild with our alts so we can get some cash and whatever... we usualy had 1million Guild xp's per day, raising to 2million on weekend when we were spamming invitations.

Yesterday my guildy pet new alt leveled from lvl 9 till 19/20... When i left the game he had 3million Guild Xp's won in a afternoon. We won about 40million XP's in 1day...

The lvl85 Daily quests of Tol Barad went from 19k each pre-patch to 60k each. What my friend told me is that his lvl19 was giving the same value for each lvl10-20 quest.

Maybe he kept telling the boss about his beholder's butthole.

sweet mother of the beholder... I've tried to hold it, by the end of Fourth: New Glyphs I couldn't resist any more and burst out laughing, very well worth read.

Is anyone having an issue with buying the JP BoE stuff? I'm trying to buy the plate stuff for my paladin, but on my shaman. However, all my shaman sees is the mail stuff.

Vendors are all filtered by default. Should be a dropdown in the top corner.

Well, if I'm guessing right and you don't have Hagara yet, that fight is more of a challenge due to the dispels. Warmaster is still a pain due to the RNG.
