A few days ago I’m talking about our planned weekend of raiding and 1.4 dropping… (excerpted from my illustrious chat log…)
I’m sure they will launch 1.4 at a time that is the most inconvenient for us
like thursday and break all the stuff for our friday raid
Welp, that happened, although at least it deployed on Wednesday and not Thursday, but things did break. The GTN totally broke. A lot of people probably don’t care about that, but remember, I am seriously stalking those last few recipes.
Also, the hat toggle for companions is not yet fully functional… Both the self-toggle and the companion toggle have the problem where the hat sometimes shows even when the box is checked. To turn the hat off again, you have to uncheck the box and then recheck it. The companion hat toggle works right until you go into a cut scene. When you get out of the cut scene, the companion is once again showing hat. I like the idea of the hat option for companions a lot, but it’s frustrating that it requires constant “babysitting” right now.
I also said in that same IM conversation
or it might be buggy RIGHT after the patch and need the subsequent fix-it-patch that they always do the next day
The servers are down today? Unscheduled maintenance? SHOCK.
These patch bugs aren’t a big deal. They usually get fixed in a reasonable timeframe and bugs don’t enrage me like they do some of my guildies. However, the knowledge that something will likely break, and it may not be something related to the patch, and it may be something really annoying – that really saps the carefree, unbridled excitement of rushing online to experience new content.
Also, moods make my toon look like a perv or an ax murderer or a pervy ax murderer.
This weekend, we’re going to try Terror From Beyond. I haven’t studied a new encounter in a while. I’ve studied hard modes of known encounters, but it’s been MONTHS since I’ve had to study a whole new thing. I’m a bit nervous that there will be bugs – in fact, given the track record of the last few patches, I expect bugs.
Wish me luck!
