I really love Blizzard's sense of humor sometimes

Postby Drathian » Thu Dec 09, 2010 2:31 am

I don't know about anyone else, but I always read through all the patch notes and all the hotfixes that I can find. Usually there's one or two that make me grin, but this time there were quite a few, so I decided to share them with everyone else that didn't see them because they were GoGoGo'ing as fast as they could.

Here's the link to the hotfix page, and the cream of the crop. Oh, also, work is boring, so please entertain me!

It is no longer possible for an ill-mannered person of the opposing faction to one-shot a flight trainer in Stormwind or Orgrimmar, which in turn made the 500 players standing on top of the flight trainer with their mammoths really sad.

Players no longer get attacked by guards when landing in Nordrassil with a hostile player targeted. It was a rather rude introduction to Mount Hyjal really.

Players are no longer able to retain the 450% swim speed increase from the Abyssal Seahorse through devious, devious means.

Players of the opposite faction can no longer kill the lures for the Seahorses. It's just mean and wrong. And mean.

Temple Guardian Anhuur in Halls of Origination will now lose Shield of Light at the appropriate times. He was cheating.

There is no longer a School of Fish in Elwynn Forest that like to think of themselves as in "testing," nor do they yield Peacebloom when fished. This School of Fish is no longer a part of the counterculture and will no longer give you flowers when fished.

Haha I had a good laugh when I first read the hotfixes.
All the references in the game that I am finding now are just making it 10x better.
aka Troggzdor the Earthinator was just amazing

Lava Surgers were caught red-handed showing no loot. Showing no loot of an almost broken nature. This will not do.

I normally read the patch notes while waiting for the patch to download... but apparently it's too much to ask for on my current connection (even though it took me ~2 days to download the patch after upgrading to Cataclysm... 12kbps really sucks)

Ah, this pool. I fished that and have a screen shot of me doing so about two years ago. Its the fishing pool by the abandoned fishing camp right under the SW-IF flight path. I was considering filing a bug report at the time but I don't think I was supposed to be up there...

Yesterday's hotfix notes are pretty win, too. I like these. Still waiting for the voice that tells you SKO LO MANS, though.

# All party members are now receiving credit for motivating a Slacking Laborer for the quest "Make Yourself Useful". This is 100% more useful.
#Lava Surgers were caught red-handed showing no loot. Showing no loot of an almost broken nature. This will not do. (They now drop loot and can be mined.)

Not only patch notes and blue posts but several parts of the expansion, several quests and dialogs in game too many to list here..

i loved doing Schnottz's camp quests in Uldum.

"NINE, NINE, NINE, NINE, NINE!!!!" (in German accent, of course)

The only quote that was missing from that sequence - and I was *LOOKING* for it.

Harrision: "Schnottzi's. I hate those guys."

But Junior being two steps behind the old man made it all worth while.

Ah yes, by the same band of stalwarts who brought you "A case of Crabs" and "A taste for tail."

back in beta, the quest you did alongside camel tow was called bait masters. they changed it to master trappers for release though, so i was very sad.

If you look amongst the weeds surrounding the Briny Cutter (where you start Vash) you will see a Companion Crate. :)
