MMO Champion has, as usual, begun posting and updating a masterful collection of anything and everything new related to the 3.1 Patch that is on the PTR as of last night.
There is so much stuff there, that I just can’t really cover it all right now. The best I can tell you is to go to MMO Chapmion and see for yourself. It’s massive, and the undocumented changes MMO Champion is reporting finding are the real show at the moment.
I’m still in shock due to other things in the blog world (why is it that someone that is a roaring asshat, a hardcore arrogant egotistical little prick, that you wish would stop blogging, just goes on forever, while the nicest, most incredible, wonderful blogger in the whole world decides it’s time to stop writing to concentrate on family? Why, God? Why? I give to charity, I don’t kick puppies… give me a break, man.) but I did want to mention four things that just blindsided me in this one.
1) A massive amount of new non-combat pets is listed as being added. Oh how freaking awesome! And one is a puppy!
I have long, LONG maintained that the fact that there are many cat non-combat pets, but only one doggie model was a shameful aberration and an insult to dog lovers everywhere.
There should be a Pug, a Bulldog, a Doberman, a German Shepard, a Great Dane, a Poodle… even a Boston Terrier! Lots of dogs!
Yes, I know that new dog models is a lot more work than different kitty skins on teh same cat chassis… I dinnae care. Are you SERIOUSLY telling me that nobody at Blizzard has a dog and understands the bond between a person and their beloved pet?
Oh, and I’m a cat person, myself… but that does not mean I lack empathy for my doggie brothers and sisters.
2) An Aquatic MANTA RAY MOUNT?!?! WTF!?
Okay, all I can say is… I brought it to you here FIRST, damnit!
That just came outta nowhere… please, let me have underwater PvP.
3) New monster models with pictures are up… and can I say, I sure hope THIS is tameable? Please?

4) The next round of crafted epics is revealed, at least in part… requiring Runed Orbs instead of Frozen Orbs. I guess it’s safe to say you’ll be getting those as BoP drops in Ulduar, eh? So Leatherworkers making some nice crafted epic boots and belts, everybody making SOMETHING.. and tons of new Glyphs. Lots of crafting goodies coming.
But hey… seriously… can my hunter tame that kitty? Huh? Please?
Oh wait, you wanted Druid breakdowns?
I think I’m going to wait a bit. I talked about most of it a bit already, and I’d like to see this stuff up for more than an evening before I make any statements.
It’s enough just to wade through all that and speculate, isn’t it?
