You need a reason to drink?

I generally pour a cold one from the tap everyday when I get home, head to the basement and watch whatever is semi-decent on TV, hoping I can get at least 30 minutes before someone bugs me.

Good. Blizzard in their brilliance doesn't allow you to tell it what to store downloads so it puts them on the install drive. Even with an 80GB drive they want over half. I have to move the entire WoW directory off before I can attempt to patch. Since I can't get the additional 5GB free that they want. (I had 8GB free when I launched).

Ugg... I've had to do that and it sucks. I've now got my WoW on a 120GB SSD with Win 7 being the only other thing and I'm already down to 40 BG free.

OK, Bliz should give us an achievement if we can beat the damn dragon layout twice in Mahjong Titans while we wait.

The folder you selected cannot be used.

Please select a different folder.This error generally occurs when the game is installed on a hard drive using the drive letters A:\ or B:\. Try changing the drive letter to any other letter D – Z.

I didn;t seem to get any of the achievs or mounts from my old EU account except for Mr Chilli.

On the plus side I did get my MoP delux edition mount and pet already. Not that I can figure out how summon companions.

Make sure you log in and out with all your toons. Once you do that, everything should populate.

I'm hoping all my addons work after patch. I redid my UI a few weeks back into what I hope are still active mods.

Today is my grand test.

Speaking of mods, anyone know a good quest tracker replacement? Or well, mover? I used to use SexyMap's movers, but they basically said "this gets all screwy if you use it, leading to the infamous boss health frame problem, so we're disabling it".

I suppose MoveAnything works, but that thing was tedious to use and I'd prefer a drag approach.

Just a last thought - keep going back to Curse because there's been a few updates since the patch dropped not the least of which is Gatherer.

Surprisingly, all of my "must have" addons are already back up and working right now. Only one I was really worried about was Carbonite, the developers haven't done much of anything for it this year other than a minor 4.3.x bump. A fan fix came through for it tonight, just worried the developers might tell the fixer to stop and leave the addon to rot. BTW Carbonite is the best quest tracker replacement I've found, and it does a whole lot more. I'm not sure if you mean replace the entire blizz made one or just move the blizz made one elsewhere (Carbonite is the former).

I have 2 major addons that still don't work... Titan Panel(doesn't even load) and Carbonite(LUA spam). So for the moment, I'm using Bartender's micro menu and bag bar, along with Chinchilla Mini map until they get updated.

Finding a working Healbot was a bit of a chore. I had to grab a user edited version from a thread at the Healbot forums. The current Beta 3 spams LUA errors.

At this point tho, beyond the addon issues, I am very disgusted at some of the changes to a couple classes I have been playing(Priest and Druid), nevermind the fact I feel like the Talent trees are designed for preschoolers now.

I don't care if you bash wow just stop talking about GW2.

A BoA bank would be nice and I don't care if some other game has something similar.

I was going to make a WOW GW2 comparison until I read your stop talking about GW2 standing order... I wouldn't want to anger someone with such an obvious lack of social skills. Maybe connection with others going through the same thing will help you feel accepted and comfortable with who you are. Only then will you stop felling the need to be an ass in online forums. Just saying.

My two complaints are that the separated Feral tanking from Feral DPS on the druid(so the druid has 4 spec line choices compared to 3 for other classes) and on my priest, they took away a couple base damage spells that were usable in all spec lines and dropped them into shadow only.

Keep in mind, I am leveling these guys, they are not 85s. I particularly don't like the Druid Feral separation. Prior, leveling was nice to run a Feral spec and be able to either DPS or Tank depending on what is needed for a run or dual spec over to a healer if needed. Now you are forced to chose to be EITHER a tank or a DPS(unless you dual spec both, then no healing possibilities).

Oh and I also hate that now it's EITHER a wand or weapon and not both( I hear the same goes for Hunter with weapons and bows).

I think the reason behind that is because they are thinking purely endgame. I seems blizzard's doesn't concern themselves with how changes affect leveling. Endgame bear tanks and dps want specific dps/tank talents. I never like losing spells, the wider aray of spells you have the more effective you can be.

I left the launcher "downloading" over night and it started with the "Downloading updated tools" crap when I woke op this morning the launcher was closed with no error message, checked firewall settings even added it to the "ok" list to no avail.

Will give another try tonight.

Maybe this is a signal from heaven.

Ya

right now my mana regen as a MAGE is insane
I'm not dropping mana unless there's a mana drain effect (mana void/blue slime) and even then I can still fully DPS as I regen so fast the loss is nothing.

I bet at 90 that won't be the case.

I did notice that Intellect has no role on mana pool now....just spellpower and spell crit. Might be why my mana pool went down to 100,000 even.

SHIFT+P is the default. The first time I accessed it on a couple of toons it was black. Close it down and open it back up if that happens.

They have updated Titan Panel »www.curse.com/addons/wow/titan-panel and Carbonite received a fan update »virtxchange.com/carbonite/ the authors have more or less abandoned according to the talk in official support forum »www.wowinterface.com/forums/show···3&page=1. Grabbed both of these last night and been back to 90% - 95% operational on my addons again (mainly just atlasloot and mogit throwing a bunch of errors). One note though, I grabbed the original fix of Carbonite, the newest update has an error when abandoning quests, I can e-mail you my copy of the fix if you want until the fix is fixed.
