Well, a bit of controversy has hit with an official 6.2 battle pet preview. Most of it is stuff we've already known: Legendary pet battles in Tanaan, new vendors in your Garrison, Nethaera's Light in Dalaran, 2 new pets from fishing at the DMF, and so on. But they've announced 2 new pets with the Unborn Val'kyr/Minfernal spawn mechanic: a firefly and a moth. Currently these are just reskins of the same moth/firefly pets we have, no special abilities. Which many people are finding annoying and not worth the camping effort, especially if this is a manufactured reason to get people out of their Garrisons and into new content, only to have to sit in a spawn point and camp until it appears. Not interesting gameplay, or a unique or unusual way of finding a rare pet. I'm thinking more like the rain on Jaguero Isle, or the way you get Nethaera's Light. We'll see how things progress with these two pets; I'll definitely be keeping an eye on it. Here's a blog post with someone's thoughts on it. I know that Lio isn't happy with the idea either, based on her tweets.

There is also a pet from from a boss in the new Hellfire Citadel raid; I'm not sure if it'll drop in LFR or if only from normal/heroic/mythic. Hopefully it will have the chance to drop in all places.

I know I just got the background downloader with some pre-release 6.2 content, but we still don't know when it will drop, and some people are even speculating August. I would be fine with late June or July myself.

What are your thoughts on the two new pets with the rare spawn mechanic, and when do you think 6.2 will be released?

UI Mod Monday!
what day is this?

Morning ladies and lurklemen!

Let's see now. We have updates for Elementarist; DMB modules for Wrath, Cata, Pandaria, and Timeless Isle; HandyNotes has added a WorldMapButton module to allow quick toggling of the addon; Auctioneer; AtlasLoot Enhanced; Collect Me; Garrison Mission Manager; Rematch; TellMeWhen; XRP; Skada Damage Reductions; BigWigs Bossmods; BonusRollPreview; YayMounts; PetBattle Teams; Bagnon; BadBoy Spam Blocker and Reporter; BigWigs Common Auras; BigWigs Cataclysm; NoDuel; and lots of SuperVillain modules.

I saw the Avatar addon, which allows you to view your character in all its transmogged glory, as a decorative part of your UI. What do you think? Would that be something you'd like to see? Or would you rather have that screen real estate for something else? I'm honestly not sure what I think about it yet.

So. UIs. Mods. It's Monday. What's up?

More PTR goodness for pet lovers! The new Cinder Pup will come from a follower mission, and the Shard of Cyrukh comes after unlocking an area with a bunch of quests in Tanaan Jungle. (news courtesy of Warcraft Pets

The model for Crusher, the young fan-created pet, has now appeared on the PTR. He looks like an ore eater with a little pickaxe in his hand, and is very cute. He costs 1k gold currently from the new traders, but is not bound.

I have also heard that Graves, the Heroes of the Storm pet, will be available when you hit level 20 in HotS. Not sure if I can take playing a MOBA for that long, so I may end up passing on that pet. We'll see.

What is up with you and your pets?

I was showing a friend now living overseas some of the places of Warcraft, and this was such a lovely shot I had to share.

It truly can be a most beautiful place.

I called it "Sunset over Warspear"

Hope all the moms had a happy Mother's Day!

I am totally clueless about what's been going on this last week, since I was travelling, so I'm just going to open the floor for your questions, comments, screenshots, discoveries, announcements, whatever you've got.

UI Mod Monday!
Wait - What?
All aboard! photo Allaboard_zpsb9c83846.gif


Right. UI Mod Monday Post. I'm packing for a trip and have to be out today for a crack of dawn appointment so right now, I got nothing. Sorry folks.

Space - have at!

Questions? Comments? Screenshots? News flash? Rumours you want to check about what they're doing to UIs? Bring em on in and we'll see what we can do, but right now I gotta git.

Children's Week is here!

If you haven't yet gotten all the pets, then now is the time to escort that orphan! And if you HAVE gotten the pets, there's something to sweeten the deal in making the various orphans run you about Azeroth & Outland - there's a new bag option in the rewards. Of course, there is still the Curmudgeon's Payoff! But there is now a Pet Care Package, and it can contain Perky Pug costumes, Lesser Pet Treats, Pet Treats, the pet-size changing items, and a Flawless Battle-Stone! It looks like the latter is always in the bag, and remember that's the one that is unbound and can be sold or traded. I noticed on my server the price of the stones dropped by at least 2k in just a few days, so if you don't want to use it, I'd suggest keeping them around until after Children's Week is over to get the most bang for your buck.

And remember that as long as you're high enough level, you can do this on alts (level 10 required for the one from vanilla, 60 for the Outland one, and 70 for the Dalaran one), so you can get ALL THE PETS if you don't have them, as well as as many stones as you want to escort orphans for.

Get escorting!

Am I the only one that has trouble making friends in game these days?
That geisha in the window
It seems really since Cataclysm that I just can't meet and get to know people in the game.  It doesn't help the feeling of isolation that I inadvertantly wiped my friends list a while back.  =/  *laughs at herself*

I spend most of my time in-game running our family guilds. We have one Horde side and one Alliance side.  Our mains are Horde side.  So yeah, I'm pretty much in Mom mode even in the game these days. Gosh.  Am I the only one?

Blessed of Elune (Alliance US PVE RP - Kirin Tor) is looking for family

Blessed of Elune
Alliance Guild on Kirin Tor Server

Hi ladies!

Looking for a social guild that is not all about raiding and the raid group? Want some light RP mixed in with other social events in a relaxed and fun group? Sick of big guilds where you don't get a chance to get to know anyone or is full of kids that want to curse just because they can? If any of the above fits you, you might just be the perfect fit with BoE :)

We have been around since the end of WotLK so we have a strong foundation. There was a bit of a slow down in guild activity between expansions but the officers are all excited to run some fun events for the guild including pvp runs (no pvp gear required. We just do it for fun), rp events and old world achievement runs. We require that members treat each other with respect, support and positivity. We do not have a raid group but many of our guild members are in various levels of progression raiding and we have a raid officer who raid assists/leads a group composed of members from multiple guilds and can also assist members with finding raid groups that fit what they are looking for. This allows the guild to focus on social events and hanging out rather than raiding taking up everyone's focus.

We welcome all classes, levels and even alts. Want to make an alt to check us out and see if we are a good fit? You are very welcome to do so. Still somewhat new to the game? Everyone in the guild is happy to help new players and will never frown at answering questions.

wow_ladies has been a great place for finding good members. In fact, three of my officers came from previous recruitment messages in this group! I am hoping we can find more new family to join us in our adventures.
