Getting ready for 6.0.2


Really looking forward to it. I'll be transferring Shaolin over to Draenor and will actually start some leveling again. I've also been able to run quite a few Heroics on my toons, getting tons of JPs and VPs which will each turn into 47s tomorrow. 120 JP from each Heroic boss. That's an extra 55g or so from each kill (as long as you're below the 4000 cap). That's insane.

Unfortunately, I'm still not without a lot of knee pain, so can't play at my main computer that much, and I can't do Heroics lying down in bed because I'd mess up too much. I just do the farms on my Laptop in bed and run the Heroics on my main computer every now and again. I have it so I use it standing up (because of my back), and I can only stand with my bad knee for short periods.

Anyway, enough of my issues. I've been doing the farms each day as I detailed last week. I've been doing the non combat dailies too and so I'm building up cash, because Warlord of Draenor is going to require a lot of it :)

I thought I'd just let you have a look at a couple of my characters. Here's Flaying, looking very bored and in mid-yawn:

And here's Draeny, looking awesome:

Now, I'm not into Transmog at all, but I may start paying attention to it now I'm putting pictures in my blog :)

I've also been leveling up Stealthybrit. She's now level 12 and holed up in Stormwind City, waiting for the Heirlooms once Shaolin's finished with them. It's was DMF week, so I did get two Balanced Heartseekers for Stealthy this week.

Achievements got up to 4660 this week. The last two being Cleaning Up (from a Heroic Dungeon) and Explore Silverpine Forest (I did some exploring on Flaying while waiting in a Heroic queue).

The plan for next week is to transfer Shaolin and start leveling her again. Also, I'll be upgrading tons of equipment with Lesser Charms of Good Fortune (I have tons saved up, and at only 50 an upgrade, it's going to be sick). I guess I'll be figuring out all the class changes once 6.0.2 hits too.

Opinion Time - The Best Things in 6.0.2

As I said, here's my new section, where I'll be giving my opinion on stuff in WoW. This week, I'll tell you about my personal favorite things about the patch tomorrow.

It's got to be the Inventory Improvements:

Items in the inventory now have a colored border around them to indicate their quality from Poor (grey) to Legendary (orange).
Tradeskill materials now stack up to 200 (up from 20).

Toy Box

Fun items accumulated through the course of travels now have a new home in the Toy Box. Eligible items can be learned by right- clicking on the item in the inventory. Once learned, the item is available account-wide and accessible to all characters on the account.
Want to complete the collection? Like the Mount and Pet Journal, items that haven’t been unlocked yet will show information on how the item can be obtained.
Toys awarded from quests will be automatically added to the Toy Box.

Bag Sorting and Cleanup

Bags can now be assigned to a specific item type (Equipment, Consumables, and Trade Goods). The bag will display a mini-icon showing what type of item it's assigned to.
Added a "Clean up Bags" button to automatically sort items in the character’s inventory, moving all empty slots to one area, and automatically sorting items to the correct bag. There’s also the option to ignore a bag from cleanup.

Reagent Bank

A Reagent Bank tab has been added to the Bank providing storage for raw materials.
Characters can now craft using the materials stored in both their Reagent Bank and Bank from anywhere.
Characters can visit the bank to unlock the new Reagent Bank tab providing additional storage space for profession materials.

New Void Storage Tab

Characters can now purchase an additional tab for Void Storage. That’s an extra 98 spaces!

The stacking to 200, and Reagent Bank tab are my personal favorites. But the bag sorting and Cleanup is also sweet. In one of my MoP tabs in my bank, I have tons of stacks of cooking stuff. It will be awesome once these stack to 200 and then I can put them in the Reagents tab too. I'm ambivalent on the Toy Box, although it will be nice to get them out of bags. I'll be much more interested in the Heirloom Tab once it is implemented. And I really don't care about Void Storage at all.

I know 6.0.2 has tons of other stuff:

But the Inventory Improvements are what really impressed me, and are one of the main reasons I came back to WoW :)
