So my good friend Fealen over at Cow and Bones had a lovely virus attack on his computer which prevented him from logging in last night, or at least attempting to log in. He could have at the very least made gnomes with the rest of us on a server we will never see again. Anyway, I think he got the better end of the deal not sitting in front of his computer swearing at Blizzard.
We did however get a chance to play with the new Real ID friend feature, which despite it being a little buggy last night is pretty neat allowing you to see your friends online whereever they may be playing. But I have to wonder if this is a good thing, don’t you sometimes ever just want to sign on to WoW and play by yourself and not be bothered by anyone you know? Well if you have this set up thats a thing of the past, every person you sign up to will know every single time you log into the game no matter what toon you are on. Now I am not saying this is nesscesarily a bad thing but just be careful who you invite in.
The other thing that isn’t new to this patch but that we just started to see is the holiday boss being queable in the dungeon finder. I LOVE THIS, this is the best thing to happen to me in quite some time. No more migrains trying to put a group together everyday for this, I just hit a button and 5 minutes later BAM! there I am. Now if only Blizzard could do a randum raid tool I would be a very happy panda.
All in all the night turned out okay even though we didn’t get to raid. It was fun watching trade chat idiots trying to form groups for the Ruby Sanctum and then having them argue with us that we were wrong when we told them it wasn’t unlocked yet. I love noobs.
