    Seems like they are doing away with the enchanting rod upgrades at all levels. Makes leveling a little easier not really needed.

    I really hope they trowing out the enchanting rod upgrades I was stuck so many times on that ones!!

  6. #6
    Enchanting made a bit easier.

  7. #7
    Hmm. Is there any chance you can dig the UI changes out of the new builds - or do you just not bother to post them because too few people are interested? That'd be fair game.

  8. #8
    i never realised the different rod for different levels was such an issue...

  9. #9
    You could've just worded that as "All enchantments take less time to complete and only need a Runed Copper Rod."

  10. #10
    May as well just remove the Runed Rod altogether. Or at least add it to the Gnomish Army Knife!

  11. #11
    No more stag form?

  12. #12

  13. #13
    I believe the change of the Rod is simply to better test the new enchants on beta. It can be a pain getting a new rod made on any test server, but not really an issue on Live.

    Wtf still no Engineering Love...

    I'm pretty sure you buy it off the vendor.

  16. #16
    Dang. I always counted on the enchanting rods as a sure level up. Ugh. And now my BS won't make any $$ off of selling low lvl rods. /sigh. Oh well.

    I hope it continues to live, rods were one of the most painful steps. Arcanite -> Fel Iron rods in the span of a few points? I dropped so much gold on that.

  19. #19
    I don't really pay that close attention to these updates, but seems like forever ago I saw a rogue change.

  20. #20
    I hope they fixed the Enchants where it wouldn't work on it's slot but it works on the Chest piece...
