Quick Note on a Great Beta Tool

The BlueTracker set up by MMO-Champion is an absolutely fabulous reference tool for finding class changes, item changes, boss changes, or feedback on pretty much everything there is about the Beta, the PTR, or WotLK.

You can find it here.

Let's Take a Minute and Reflect Here

SCREW THAT!!!11!!111!!!oneeleven!!1


Upcoming Hunter Changes

I have some good news, and some bad news. First, the bad news. Unfortunately we won't be able to do the Aspect of the Viper change I discussed yesterday (passive instead of requiring you to attack the target) at this time because of technical limitations and its potential to shake up our current balance goals. However, we will evaluate it as an option for a future patch.

Now, the good news.

- Aimed Shot - This shot will now be instant cast, its damage/effect/cooldown will remain unchanged.
- Scatter shot - This will now be an 11-point Survival talent.
- Readiness - This will now be the 21-point Marksmanship talent.
- Trap Mastery - This will now be the 41-point Survival talent. Granted, not very sexy for a 41-pointer but we'll do some changes there in a future patch (after WOLK ships).
- Surefooted is swapping places with T.N.T. (so Surefooted is now in tier 2)

These changes will be live in an upcoming beta build.

I Stay Up Late And I Don't Do Anything Productive

So here I am, 2:51 in the morning, waiting for the daily timer to countdown so we can have 5 more "go's" at the Brewfest Kodo. We just finished our first 5 ever about 18 minutes ago, and we wanted to try again so we wouldn't have to think about it tomorrow.

I'll let you know how it turns out, we've had one of every trinket so far, and I got my healing trinket. YAY.

But still. WTB 5 Kodos in a row.

Edit: %&$*ing %&$(ers made the reset time 4 AM when the quest log says 3 AM. Oh well, more to look forward to later tonight.

So, It's Time For That Post

Get used to this face (no, not Clint Eastwood's). If I have it my way, this man (haha, Salvi) is going to be the next President of the United States, and there are so many reasons why. I agree with most people that gaming should be left to gaming, and blogging about gaming should be left to blogging about gaming, but this takes precedence. This is about our future as a nation, this is about the sacrifice we have made to a pointless cause, this is our time.

When Bill Clinton left office there was 3 Billion Dollar surplus. George Bush's first year in office had him borrowing over 133 million dollars. Our National Debt is now 10 Trillion dollars. Trillion, that's a lot of freaking money that we don't have. We owe 40% of it to our own Federal Reserve, so, I have a question... where do we have the money to pay for EVERYTHING WE DO? McCain wants to cut taxes and spend more. HOW DOES THIS MAKE SENSE? Let's get less in from the Nation, and spend more? I'm don't have a P.h.D in Economics, but I can tell you that -10,000,000,000,000 + more spending = more debt.

"Obama wants to increase taxes on the top 5% in the country." This is the thing that everyone freaks out about. Bill O'reilly sits on his high horse every night and preaches "Redistribution of the Wealth." What people don't seem to understand is that we aren't increasing taxes on the top 5%, we are just putting them back to what they were before the 8 Years of the Bush error (yes, era). We are reverting back to the time of President Clinton, when the nation worked, gas prices were low, we had money to spend and we didn't know what to do with it.

Who the %&$* does Sarah Palin think she is? That's what I want to know. McCain said the other day, "Sarah Palin is the most knowledgeble person in the United States about Energy Policy." DID SHE LEARN EVERYTHING ABOUT ENERGY IN THE FOUR COLLEGES IT TOOK HER TO GET HER BACHELOR'S IN JOURNALISM. DID SHE LEARN IT DECIDING WHAT KIND OF COOKIES TO BRING TO SNACK NEXT WEEK DURING HER P.T.A MEETINGS? Where does she get her qualifications from? If McCain gets elected (I swear to god...) the thing he's going to have to worry about the most is Palin coming out from behind a corner at the White House, yelling, "Boo!" and him having a heart attack.

People just don't understand. They watch this republican slander and think that they are all cool when they can repeate Rush Limbaugh. The government under McCain would be an idiocracy, that's not what the country needs right now.
