It didn’t take long to get from Thunder Bluff to the Echo Isles – Ankona took advantage of a wyvern so she could think and plan before getting to her destination. She had information to confirm with the spirits – was Gromnor dead? Was he really in the northern part of the Eastern Kingdoms, somewhere […]

The Best of 3.0/WotLK Information
comment 32 Written by on October 8, 2008 – 10:28 am

Or at least, the best that I’ve found.

I’ve been following all this expansion and 3.0 brouhaha more closely lately, given that we’re about a week before this thing lands (*hums* it’s the end of the world as we know it…).  Unfortunately, all of the best info is – as you’d expect – scattered across the blogosphere, with many blogs contributing excellent information, making it hard to keep tabs on what’s happening where.  Also, its hard to find information that’s more than just a list of patch notes!

So here it is: a list of interesting, thought provoking, or rear-end saving posts about the upcoming patch from people who (unlike me) spend time in the beta!  If you’ve read something awesome and I’ve not listed it here – PLEASE comment or email me (toomanyannas at gmail dot com) and let me know.  I plan to keep this updated.

DISCLAIMER:  This information may be out of date, due to the constant influx of new information, changes and Blizzard not being able to make up their mind about whether or not this icon should be blue or yellow.  You can always read the live patch notes here, and the most updated PTR patch notes here.

The Patch Notes for 3.0.2 have been released, and you can find them here, at mmo-champion.com.

  1. PERFECT!! Not 5 minutes ago, I posted in BA chat that it’s time for me to get familiar with what’s coming in the patch. Then Matt Tweeted about it, and here I am! 🙂

  2. @Kestrel:

    Glad I could help out – It’s been a veritable deluge of information lately, for sure – hopefully 90% of this is still valid next week!

  6. Just an FYI, Anna. The stuff at Masochist Paladin is horribly outdated, and inaccurate. Not surprising, as the post appears to have been written 3 months ago.

    For up to date tankadin stuff, I’d recommend folks going to the Maintankadin WotLK forum:

  7. @Eapoe: Bah – I knew I’d miss one or two. I’ve been collecting links for awhile, and I thought I filtered out the stuff that was more than a month or 6 weeks old. Apparently not – thanks for snagging it!

  8. Lots of great resources, now I got something to read for the next three hours.

    Thanks for the links to my site as well.

    One shameless suggestion: this post is similar to the one written by Siha about professions and does have a few of my rants, so if you find it useful for some reason, feel free to plug it in

  10. Having 6 (almost 7) 70’s of all different classes, I’m finding it hard to swim around to 30-40 different blogs to keep up. You’ve made my day!

  11. I know it’s rude, but I’m going to plug Petopia’s 3.0/WotLK Hunter Pet FAQ o’Doom, if only because it took me so long to write. *grin*

  12. @Mania: Not only is it not rude, it’s great, and exactly the stuff I was looking for! Added and updated!

  13. You’ve gone to the dark side! 🙂

  14. @PTD:

    hahaha! not really – it only looks that way. You’ll notice you won’t learn anything from MY blog… I’ve just facilitated the learning for other people 😀

  15. This is an awesome summary! *goes off to pore over everyone else’s stuff*

  17. See, and this is why Feathermooninites are awesome.

    I’ll plug my own list, with links: how to hit the spell cap at 80 without stepping into anything harder than a heroic. Only a few rep grinds too, and only to honored, so it’s not even mind-numbingly dull! Geared primarily towards ‘locks, though I guess mages could benefit from it too.

  21. Hello and thanks for the mention! In actuality, my blog is focus on tenacity pets in general and pet tanking!

    Nice amalgamation of information =)

  22. Hey Anna, couple things. One, I’ve moved my spell hit guide onto its own page:


    And secondly, I guess you could add my title compendium, since we’ve still got a couple weeks till Wrath:
