My 3.1 To-do List!

April 14th, 2009

1. Update UI.

Ithato on No Stock UI has posted a guide about how to handle the patch, including a list of popular updated addons.  Luckily most of mine are up there, and I hope the ones that aren’t will be still functional!

2. Respec.

Here’s the plan.  Yep, I’ve decided to stay MM for the time being.  I might test out BM soon and see how it’s improved, but right now I’m just really into Marksmanship!

I’ve moved some points around, gotten rid of Improved Revive Pet and Aspect Mastery so I could take advantage of the new bleed stuff and some additional regen.  Also put the 2 extra points from Ranged Weapon Specialization (it was reduced to 3 instead of 5) into Focused Aim so I can equip my Mirror of Truth and my Darkmoon Card: Greatness without feeling guilty!

3. Tame a Wolf.

Actually did this last night, and it cost me 75g because I had to spec to BM to release my Rhino and then back to MM.  They really need to add a way to release a pet without actually removing them from the stable – that’s silly!  I shoulda just stayed BM for the day, if only I knew the patch would be coming!

This is where his talents are going.  Valdyr is still only 78, but hopefully I’ll be able to get him to 80 before the raid tonight (assuming the patch goes well enough to let us raid!)

4. New Glyphs.

Glyph of Aimed Shot or Glyph of Chimera Shot, Glyph of Serpent Sting, Glyph of Trueshot Aura.

I’m really still debating between Glyph of Aimed Shot and Glyph of Chimera Shot.  Not sure if 1 second reduced cooldown will make much of a difference with Chimera.

5. New Bag Slot.

I’ve got to remember to get rid of my ammo bags!  I still have an extra 18 slot sitting in my bank from when I picked up a Dragon-Hide Bag, so that’ll do for now.  I really should invest in some 20-slot bags though… Hmm.

6. Acquire Flasks.

I need to get some of those nice new 1-hour Flasks of Endless Rage made up for Ulduar attempts.  I should have bought the mats before the patch… but I forgot.  That’s gonna cost me!

  1. Very similar to my to-do-list. Do you know for sure if the patch is today? I can’t check since I am at work.

  2. Yep it is for certain, has been confirmed by downloaders and blue posters!

  3. Yay! thanks Brajana! Looks like i’m not feeling well… cough cough…may have to go home a bit early. LoL

  4. Haha :) Well don’t go home too early… wait til you hear that all the realms are back up and running smoothly! That can take a while on patch day!

  5. In before Rilgon: One of us…. one of us….

    Use Glyph of Chimera. That one second means many more shots used during a boss fight.

  6. Yeah, I guess so. I guess I was just thinking with all this buffing to Aimed I’m gettting with Barrage and Improved Barrage and Trueshot Glyph, Aimed with -2 sec might be worth it. But I haven’t tested anything and I don’t know what the numbers are like!

  7. I agree with Negathle. Chimera Shot gives us more bang for the buck. So, the more we can use it, the better. ^_^

    Wulf’s last blog post..Dual Specs

  8. FYI- you can open a ticket and a GM will happily remove pets for you. I avoided a 100g respec bill to make room for my new wolf :)

    I named him Bowmore- got the idea from Darkbrew, whose pet is named after another fine scotch.

  9. Rawr! I actually did think about that and figured I could… but I also didn’t want to wait an hour to get ahold of a GM. Because in an hour… I could make 100g anyway :)

    Lesson learned though, I’ll be sure to petition next time!

    And I still think they should make another way of doing it! hehe.
