Hound Dog

When the image store fails, WHEEL OUT THE PANDA CHAIR.

With the minimum of fuss 5.3 dropped on the PTR at the weekend, and with it an absolute SHEDLOAD of Quality of Life changes (quite apart from the massive PvP shakeup, which better women than I are already covering) have now appeared via the wonders of datamining. The one that makes me sit up and take notice? Stable slots for your average Hunter increase to 55. FIFTY-FIVE SLOTS :O Even I might have some trouble maxxing that lot out, but it won't stop me a) thinking how to do it and b) giving it a DAMN FINE TRY.

The other ones that give me pause to stop, think and then fall over are pretty obvious too:

  • Raiding with Leashes II: Attunement Edition means I'm going to be spending some time in Karazhan, Serpentshrine Cavern and Tempest Keep. I notice there have already been some tweaks to the instances to accommodate soloing. I suspect some dry runs may be in order! Oh and yes, I know I promised a Pet Battling Guide in February and it's almost April. *sigh* It's coming, honest.
  • If you're bored in LFR, waiting for that third replacement Tank? Time to play Rock, Paper, Scissors! (This makes me think that changes to models is going well, if they can add new animations like this to the existing models)
  • There is an achievement for collecting 200 Mounts. Regardless of the reward, I'm already quietly gearing up to make this happen, and expect a Blog Post on it this week.
  • There's a chance that I'll have 3 rubbish DPS specs to choose from at some point in the future.

There's a lot more besides: check out the Wowhead Datamining Post for more details. There is one more item of interest that I'd like to mention and then say no more about: the Unclaimed Black Market Container. This item should be making an awful lot of people unreasonably excited, and will be the reason why a L1 bankalt is officially summoned to the BMAH. Needless to say, we will not be mentioning this again. Oh no, if anyone asks I never saw this and you never told me about it. Now be off with you before I clip you about the ear...^^

55 slots!? Wait, so they're finally getting over their fears of being accused of Pokemanzing everything?

Welp, there goes point the level 20 huntard alt!
