Just patched my gaming pc, watched the trailer, and read some patch notes. Darn it, that old saying really does ring true.
I thought I got out, but they pulled me back in.
Bring on mid December, when the bug fix patches have been applied, and we’re getting right into it. Fo rnow though its just as exciting to think about DeathWing attacking every damn city in Azeroth.
Today’s post is a re-write of an apology to my raid team mates, about having connection issues. I hate connection issues, and hate more when a tech support staffer can’t offer anything overly constructive unless lead by the nose.
It just makes me say Arrrrrrrggg! Continue reading
If you are levelling to 80 before Cataclysm is released then please consider getting your character to level 79.9, and then stopping. This is so they can acquire a full bar (150%) worth of rested xp prior to launch into Cata with. Of course if you’re not going to continue to level that toon, then go to 80 and wait for the rested to accumulate in the normal way.

It is not good form to wait to roll last on the last boss’s loot, then Need roll, then quit.
We can tell that you probably don’t need it, and you appear a total oxygen thief.
I’ve been wowheading a lot, and use the same searches over and over. So here is my list for easy re-use.
You do zero DPS when you’re dead.
Meaning the longer you survive, the better everyone else is. Don’t stand in fire, don’t pull aggro, kill the marked target, or at the very least the Tank’s target.
(this rule sometimes does not apply; like when I play my Boomkin)
Simple mod called KAHolyPower, for pallys like my alt who wish the Holy Power display to be adjustable around the screen.
I tank at a run, using the speed of my cool-downs. If that is too slow then let me know and I’ll drop group. I know who will get a group faster.
DPS pulling aggro is a self correcting problem.
I’ll taunt the first time, maybe the second, but third and forth? No way. Turn your pet’s growl off and read the threat meter. It is there to save your life.
Saw a post by everyone’s favourite Greedy Goblin, which had an excellent tip as Cata Prep. TLDR is complete but do not hand in as many quests as you can; and when Cata launches you’ll be able to do a quick hand-in and jump start leveling.
He also suggested saving your hearth to a city on the main continents, rather than Dalaran as the portals will be removed. I am not sure where the new 80-81 quest hubs will be, but a major city is a good idea till we do.
Sometimes that goblin is darn clever. Go read for his other prep thoughts.
