First glance at 2.3

The Patch notes for 2.3 are available.

I know I’m primarily a Paladin blog.. but I’m going to withhold comment on the Paladin changes until they hit live (there’s enough other blogs out there commenting on them that I don’t need to follow the crowd).

I am going to call out these other changes specifically:

Guildbanks. You can buy 6 tabs of 96 items for guild storage. Sounds nice for a guild.. sounds even nicer for a bank toon. A guild of one so the speak. I guess it just depends on how much it costs.

Speed of leveling. This has been ground into the dirt.. but it’s worth mentioning.. I am so going on an alt-ing spree. Wheee!

When you inspect another player, you can now see their talent choices as well as their equipment. I’m not sure if this is good or bad.. really it’s just a shortcut so you don’t have to goto wowArmory to see their talents.

You can now send up to 12 items in a single mail message. This is epic. It makes mail between myself and my bank toons soo much easier. AND it sounds like it will eliminate the need for CT-mail addon.

AND adding flight point for alliance at the Rebel Camp in Stranglethorn.

  • I just usually post the Paladin notes only on mine and all the other notes and maybe highlight any hidden good to be aware of since the notes are usually so long and you forget stuff eventually. Didn’t have much time to go thru the notes today so i just posted what i can. I just often highlight stuff that stands out that affects my class or profession or little good stuff to know.

    On the new Guild Banks. I really need more space for banking and i usually use my sleeping alt toon (Warlock) for space. The idea of being able have a alt and create a guild just for your alt and then have that much more bank space is very tempting a option i’m likely to consider. Bee good to know how much the slots will cost. I can see me doing just that to create more space.

    I like the new mail changes being able to send more things all at once. I was using “GMail” mod which allowed you to do that as a addon. But since Patch 2.2 its not been working so be glad for this as well.

    Inspection should be fine at 30yrds but i don’t think you should be able to see their raw talent point spread just like that on inspection. Thats just me. If you really want to see it go to the Armory thats what its for.

    Mid level changes are nice for everyone with Altism Syndrome :) leveling. Maybe i level one or two my alts. But all great i think.

    I kinda like the new addition it seem for Dungeon daily quests be nice if you got more reps somehow for it but will see. Cooking & Fishing getting new recipes and i’m all over that and for cooking daily quests and new recipes. Seem like a lot of stuff in the new patch though if even little ones.

  • “You can now send up to 12 items in a single mail message. This is epic. It makes mail between myself and my bank toons soo much easier. AND it sounds like it will eliminate the need for CT-mail addon.”

    Out of all the non-pally changes thats what I’m most excited about…no more taking up time to send my alt stuff and vice versa. Bank Toons FTW!!

  • You’re the first one I’ve seen to mention the 12 slots in a mail message. That sounds awesome! I’ve been complaining how much I have to spend mailing stuff to friends who could use things I pick up.

    Though I’m not so sure how to react to making Rebel Camp a flight point. I think it will only draw more Horde campers to the location. There’s already enough around Nesingwary’s. Unless they up the levels of the NPCs or do something else, I don’t think I’ll be flying there anytime soon.

    Talent build shame is upon anyone who runs something a little different I guess… I am kinda weirded out by the inspect changes.

    Theoretically, how would you see my ardent defender-ness? Its weird.

    I could see where it would be useful to know if someone’s primarily Holy or Prot or whatever at a glance. OTOH you can usually tell by their equiptment…
