    Updating addons, of course, was a bit of a pain in the ass but nothing too bad. Otherwise, been enjoying it somewhat; specifically, updating specs and experimenting with the those changes.

    What?
    Mages didnt get pruned? We got some nice spells like alter time back and finally some possible contenders for the god awful rune of power.
    What pruning are you refering to?

    I logged in after several months of not bothering and found out all it appears they did was delete 70 levels from all of my max level chars and added some different customization at the barber shop. Oh yeah I forgot they screwed up some of my addons, so in my opinion not worth it.

    Not stupid. It's a strange change to go back to. Holy pally damage and survivability is awesome in the low levels too. I'm glad i'm working on another holy pally.

    Actually after the changes to that row, i'm more willing to use RoP now. IF is boring after using it for multiple expansions and the spell they brought back and made a talent is one I hoped they would never bring back. (It should work the other way, buff yourself with crit and give a teamate a crit buff when you crit.) Mages have stagnated in the "Not broken so don't fix it" mindset and it's showing it's age (ugh and ignite
    spread being tied to an ability again, no thank you. They can come up with a better aoe setup for fire than.)

    They also changed pretty much every spec/class in some way.

    It's worth coming back if you want to level alts.

    You can mage swap it. With decent gear it should be a very high uptime on 10% crit. Thats not negligble

    to sum up my prepatch experience so far:
    "where does the event quest start?"
    again and again and again...

    Wait for release. Pre-patch is still bfa, but with the level squish, and an awful new starting zone for new characters.

    Give it a week or two and the quest will be available. Should be a pop up quest.

    Idk man I just enjoy the haloween event too much I guess. Reminds me of old times and its fun to revisit scarlet monastery. I just like it

    So I was using a gold dupe hack. I don't know why i was banned for this. It is so unfair.
    People need an incentive to play content. "Its fun!" is simply not enough.

    Ah right, I didn't realise you meant in-game chat, my bad.

    Updated GPU driver (I don't have ray tracing but ok) then addons were crashing game etc so had to fix that also. Apart from that everything seems to work fine settings needed full re-adjustment but I didn't notice a performance hit. Ofc remains to be seen once in the new areas but from previous experience I would say that if it works at prepatch it will work in expansion.

    Its agenda based. He probably hasnt even tried it. The mods condone this kind of trolling though. They dont like it when people talk real :/

    Everything is overturned, even alts who never had corrupted gear are struggling against some elite mobs that used to be pushovers before.

    I doubt they will fix anything that is related to the quality of the pre-patch experience. The bug-catching brigade is only in the Exploit and Fun-detected setting right now.

    I am abusing the barbers right now.

    Did the new starting location too. which I did do in the beta, was pretty decent. Very kids Saturday morning storyline I was expecting one of those old kids PSA's to pop up at the end and tell us not to play inside washing machines, but I think it was nice :P
