Yes I have been rather quiet lately, mostly because my WoW life has been a revolving door of mostly the same things over and over – I raid, I level alts, I raid some more – but today I got a Very Special Email, one that definitely injected a little shot of YAY into the doldrums.
I almost deleted the email thinking it was yet another badly-worded, grammatically incorrect phishing scam, but noticed all the headers actually originated from blizzard.com. Could it be? I logged into my battle.net account to see first hand, and there it sat in shiny, sparkly glory – Cataclysm beta! SQUEEEEE
Blizzard probably sent out another mass wave of invites now that the expansion release is drawing closer (I got a beta invite to WotLK right around the same time and the servers were a giant lagfest with all the new people logging in at once), but I’ll take a beta key in any form!
To fulfill my roguish duty I’ll copy over my beloved dagger-wielder and see how she feels with a severely pruned talent tree and OLD WEATHER FLYING (can I get an amen!). I’ll also probably copy over my other 80’s just to check out the changes; my hunter and shadowpriest in particular are sounding like they will be interesting to test drive with new talents. My druid, I’m not sure about… I’ll spend most of the time logged into him crying over spilled tree form – and I probably don’t want to touch my paladin with a 10 foot pole, based on the feedback on the wow forums…
Sigh, beta installer at 18%… *twitch*
