Jeremy Gafneys hosts a Q&A at reddit. There are many interesting questions and answers. It seems that Wildstar is slowly starting to talk about new stuff and ideas.
The last few builds did not have any major changes for Enhancement Shamans, nothing worthy a full post at least. But after 3 builds without comment I decided to share some of the experiences. The Beta Realms have been quite unstable. Crashes, lag-spikes, timeouts in minute intervals. Its slowly affecting motivation of experienced beta testers. Usually Blizzard is quite fast on fixing such builds, hence the delay on this post.
There haven’t been many changes so far in the new Easter Build. A few bug fixes, improved mana situation and and insane Buff to healing. Feral Spirit’s new ability Spirit Strike was something I was looking forward a lot.
If you have the 64-bit client you need to remove it prior patching to the new version of the game, which will be launched today/tomorrow or the patching will result in an internal error. See the blue post below.
With 1 day delay Blizzard published the 64-bit windows and apple client today. The installation is quite easy – in fact it seemed almost too easy, but it works perfectly fine. By using this new client you can expect improved performance in various ways. My PC seems to load faster, WoW seems to have stopped stuttering in raid encounters (with lots of combat parsing) and it seems the load is slightly lower.
Videogamer.com has interviewed Lead Quest Designer Dave Kosak about the 2012 timeline in World of Warcraft.
Patch 4.3 introduced the perfect way to raid for your alts, looking for raid – lfr. Personally I enjoy having the possibility to raid a bit with my alts, even with low experience or bad gear. You don’t need to be in a guild, there is no pressure with consumables or people raging on vt – just plain simple and kind of fun raiding. It helped me improve my skills and motivated me enough to level up 2 of my alts I haven’t touched since vanilla. But how do we use the LFR system to our advantage?
Just a quick note: Bethesday has released Patch 1.2 for Skyrim, which is primary supposed to fix some bugs. However there appear many reports – e.g. at nexusforums.com – who mention a lot of new issues. For example bugged UI, issues with savegames, problems with npcs. Maybe it is better to wait for another update. A New Patch has been released!
