Am I the only one that finds his play changed by patch 3.2 information?

I mean seriously, the changes allowing mounts as early as level 20 alone has changed which characters I play.   With the latest news of cold weather flight being available at level 68 (as long as you already have a level 80) it is just that much more pronounced.

I currently have three level 70 characters, two of which I plan to see join my pair of level 80’s. Neither one of those two has even basic flight skill as of yet. Right now I can’t help but look at them and think “leveling will be so much easier if I just wait till after the patch”.

So there they sit, waiting.


I started a shiny new Draeni mage alt yesterday. It is a lot more fun than I thought it would be actually. I managed to get him up to his 6th season without dying, then parked him for the night in the first Inn I came across. The playstyle seems interesting so far, but I am just kinda making it up as I go along. Yes mage bloggers, I will be bugging you for info later.

I wonder though, once my little mage hits level 20 will I get that feeling with him too? That “gee, if I wait till the patch I could have a mount already” feeling? Will I simply park him at an inn somewhere until the patch hits?

What will I do then?

Just log out and wait?


I suppose I could go into a holding pattern of doing profession dailies on those that have them and doing the Darnassus rep grind with my new mage. I hate, hate, hate the elephant mounts. I hate them with the burning passion of a thousand suns, none of my Dreani use one. I’ll get stuck with one though, at least for a while. There is no way I can get exalted with Darnassus before level 20.

I guess I could grind all the mats to level the new mage’s professions up, that could keep me occupied for a while. Actually grinding up all the cloth to powerlevel tailoring and enchanting would likely take a while. Not only that, but it would still be as time efficient now as  later.

Grind like a hundred stacks of each kind of cloth, that sounds fun.

I guess I could do that.

Or I could fish.

Or possibly watch end of the world doomsday shows on the Discovery Channel.
