Blizzard announced last night that they are making changes to the racials and already there are pages and pages of threads crying, complaining and demanding.
Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won’t come again
And don’t speak too soon
For the wheel’s still in spin
And there’s no tellin’ who
That it’s namin’.
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin’.
It seems that Bob Dylan was spot on. Personally Im in two minds about the whole thing, yes its Blizzard’s game and they reserve the right to chance what they want when they want, but they must be aware that certain people roled certain class/race combinations with race in mind.

Picked up Spore this afternoon and we are loving it so far. The gnomeling is playing a carnivous cute but evil species bent on galactic domination and im playing a plant eating butterfly bird thingie. Typecast much…
The only downside is it makes me feel sick after a while so my civilisation is still living in a nest whilst the “Lyloids” are already nuking people.

Up the airy mountain,
Down the rushy glen,
We daren’t go a-hunting
For fear of little men;
Ok I admit, my hunter hasnt got beyond lv 30 because im scared of gnomes… although gnomes are scary, its because im lazy. That said, ive been eyeing the forthcoming hunter changes with interest, especially the pet related ones (im a sucker for pets).
- Being able to have 5 pets up from the 3 we can currently have.
- Pets actually having their own talent trees and the trees being defined clearly into tanking, dps etc
- All pet families having focus dumps
- All pets getting a unique family skill (Although this is a bit of a double edged sword but ill come to that later)
My first thought when i read about the changes was “oooh, i can finally go back to having a wolf”, after all ive always been a dog person and in Vanilla WoW my little hunter had a black worg from Shadowfang keep (one of those with a fast attack speed). I even picked out a worg on Petopia, one of the new white ones coming in the expansion. Then i got my Beta key and discovered them in the wild. Whilst one was biting on me, i realised that i didnt actually like them.

But at my back I always hear
Time’s wingèd chariot hurrying near;
And yonder all before us lie
Deserts of vast eternity.
To his Coy Mistress by Andrew Marvell
This has always been one of my favourite poems, but I think im beginning to grasp his point more and more these days. Time is a ticking, Christmas and the expansion are sneaking up on us, I have work to do in RL (EEK) and oh so much to do in WoW, but im just procrastinating (another favourite word) and making lists.
