So on the off chance anyone cares I thought I would point out I have made 7 out of 14 topics here.

So anyone else feel Bliz failed with 3.3?

I do like the sound of the Map/Quest changes. This is, of course, site-unseen. Also, I like what I read about reputation based enchants being BoA so you can send them to your alts (if I understood that correctly). Also, I like that you can group with other realms.. it increases the pool of potential raid/dungeon partners.

I haven't logged in since they rolled it out this morning though, so in all fairness, I have experience-based opinion on this. I'll have to play 3.3 and see how it goes.

From the sounds of it Bliz stole questhelper and put it ingame. I think it will probly be one of the major sucesses in this patch. And I dont think your mistaken about the shoulder/helm enchants. Might be seing you sometime Mr Admin

  • The in-game Quest information is quite good and should eliminate the need for quest helper.
  • The cross-realm raids and groups could be nice, but ONLY if it works.. Today was total fail as all the instance servers were down so even though you could group with people for the random dungeons, you couldn't actually get inside of them. Also, the RAID match-making was totally inoperative and a total FAIL.
  • I confirmed the the various reputation based enchants are, in fact, bind on account. This makes me very happy since my main is Exalted w/ all the Wrath factions. Now I can get enchants for my alts without having to worry about rep grinding. I decided some time ago that I did not want to worry about rep with any of my toons other than my main so this is nice. I think it is fair too. A player should not have to reproduce all that effort more than once.
  • I am not too happy with the way they nerfed AoE damage. If you read the patch notes, they capped total AoE damage at the amount you would be able to inflict on 10 targets. In certain situations, such as for all the whelps in ONY this is going to seriously put a dent in several classes dps and potentially will wipe lots of raids as casters will not be able to down all the adds quickly enough. I hope I am wrong about that, but I sort of doubt that I am.

Well as we saw the Cross-realm didnt work terribly well, to many people disconnected. But at least I finnaly got to do Oculus.

And the nerf on AoE was instently noticed by all Prot paladins. made threat on large mobs... difficult.

With regard to the cross-realm match-making for dungeons, I have not used it yet because it was broken yesterday with all the instance servers being down. Here is a conversation I had with my friend who used it this morning though:

Wong: I am in love with the cross server raid tool!!!
Jonathan: I guess it works today then.. cool
Wong: yeah..for the last 2 hours..i was in 4 raid group
Wong: lol
Wong: got 18 badges
Wong: triumph badges
Wong: it's amazing
Jonathan: Wow! So, basically, you get matched fast so you aren't sitting in LFG all day
Wong: and the wait time is 3 minute max
Wong: exactly
Jonathan: OOOOh, never need a guild again.
Jonathan: lol
Wong: I am thinking the same thing
Wong: lol
Wong: plus it's cross server..there are sooo many people to match with
Wong: this is even better than pvp!
Wong: lol
Wong: spank and done!
Jonathan: and it matches you.. so don't have people asking you to link achievements and dps
Wong: yup..none of those non-sense
Wong: they get you the tank, healer, dps
Wong: etc
Jonathan: ooh. I am excitited to try it.
Wong: it's amazing
Wong: it's like a brand new game
Jonathan: Yay!
Wong: no way waiting for stuff to happen
Wong: and sign-ups!
Wong: just sign on whenever you feel like...
Jonathan: That is awesome.. Group-and-Go
Wong: and get a group in 2 minutes
Wong: and spank and go!
Jonathan: Wow.. so get your badges all in a couple of days and rest the remainder of the week
Wong: lol
Wong: I guesss
Jonathan: Did you do 25s that way?
Wong: I don;t think you can do 25 :(
Wong: that's the down side
Jonathan: Oh.. so you did for 5-mans? Or were they 10s?
Wong: all 5 mans..not sure about 10 man tho
Jonathan: SO, you didn't use Looking-For-Raid /lfr
Wong: not this morning
Wong: no
Jonathan: Ah, okay.. I thought you were using looking for raid
Jonathan: The random match-making for dungeons in cool
Jonathan: and you can do them every day for Triumph badges
Wong: I think so
Jonathan: NICE
Wong: if they don't do 25 man
Wong: i wish they will add that later
Jonathan: everyone will have 245 level gear for all slots in no-time
Jonathan: try Looking for RAID.. is supposed to be the same thing
Wong: yeah..i just upgraded my shoulder
Jonathan: /LFR
Jonathan: It was not working yesterday at all though.

So, the cross-realms stuff, when it works, is looking to be really nice.

That explains why LFR was so bad last night. Nobody was trying anyway since the instance servers were down. Good to know though. I can break 5K gear score in a matter of days now (on my main). Already only about 50 away.

Not yet. Nothing was working last night and I am at work during the day. More than likely will not get to any of the new content until middle of next week.

No, I don't mind. You can get the code for them for free at MyWoWCard.com. They don't seem to properly show talent point allocations but they're pretty accurate otherwise.
