Even though I played/tested all these changes on the PTS, it’s only by seeing them used in anger on the live servers, do I think you get a real feel for their impact. So I’ll spend the weekend getting to know them all better before commenting, but even then I think it will be a while yet to see how it all pans out. The one thing I am grateful for, is the fact that I absorbed these changes a little bit at a time on the PTS, instead of being thrust into them all yesterday. I did see a lot of people just following other people, since they really had no idea what was going on.
I do like the new pets, I appreciate it’s a trivial thing but they made me chuckle, especially the dopey basset like hound, who’s named Fang due to his ferocious demeanor. The one thing I didn’t expect was the RR60 cap on the new 70% speed mounts. For whatever reason, that was unexpected, probably down to the fact I didn’t look at them on PTS system. I’m sure I didn’t see that in the published material either.
Anyway, enjoy the changes and don’t get to annoyed that things aren’t they way they were. If you don’t like change, then MMO’s aren’t for you. The one thing that really annoys me is, people moaning about things before they’ve even given them a fair crack of the whip.
