Patch 5.0.4 Frost Death Knight

Cool it with the puns!

Patch 5.0.4 brings changes to one and all.  Since I’m also playing a Frost DK, potentially as my new main, it’s important to know what the Hell I’m doing as far as the class reset goes.  So, much like the Fury Warrior, here’s some links to help clarify things on the new 5.0 Frost Death Knight.


Icy Veins – still in the process of updating.  Will edit this once they go live, or not if it takes too long and I forget.

Painless to you, so bring the pain to everyone else.

Patch 5.0.4 Fury Warrior



Well here we are – the day of the great Class reset, Patch 5.0.4, and people are wondering WTF to do.  I’ll be honest, that includes me.  Luckily there are many great sites out there that are poised to help, like great panthers of peace.  I’m not going to reinvent the wheel ’cause that’s not how I roll.  I can, however, point you to some sites that can help you with your 5.0 Fury Warrior.

I will update this as I find sites.  Good luck out there.

Frost Death Knight In Patch 5.0

Time for you to chill!

This post is going to be short and sweet.  I had been concerned about the earlier state of Frost DK‘s in the beta.  However, after checking out this recent video I’m much less tense.  Frost Death Knights in 5.0 is going to be, well, at the very least playable and at the very most awesome.  Check out the latest video from the MoP Beta for talents, glyphs, and so on.

There is another reason that I was excited about the 5.0 changes to the Death Knight, and I’m glad to see it go live.

I find your lack of faith… disturbing.


That is all.

Mists of Pandaria Release Date

Well it’s official – Mists of Pandaria finally has a release date – September 25, 2012!

Blizzard being Blizzard, is also making it worth your while to pick up the expansion by throwing not only swag from their other titles, but both pets AND mounts at you –

The Digital Deluxe version of Mists of Pandaria includes a full digital copy of the expansion along with the following exclusive in-game bonus items:

  • World of Warcraft In-Game Mount: Take to the skies of Azeroth astride the mystical Imperial Quilen flying mount.
  • World of Warcraft In-Game Pet: Journey across Pandaria with the Lucky Quilen Cub at your side.
  • StarCraft® II® Portraits: Bring the Horde and Alliance rivalry to the far reaches of the Koprulu sector with exclusive Infested Orc and Night Elf Templar portraits.
  • Diablo® III Banner Sigil and Accent: Display your status as a hero of Pandaria with the iconic markings of World of Warcraft’s newest playable race, the pandaren.

The wait is over.  Now start making plans for the release date!

Patch 5.0.4 Chaos

Panda Time is Chillaxing Time

MMO Champion wrote in a post that Patch 5.0.4 had just hit the PTR.  Most likely, this means the patch will be pushed to the live servers in 4-6 weeks.

Which also means that I’ll probably be done with WoW for awhile.

This is generally the exact opposite reaction of what most people will be doing.  There’s a great number of World of Warcraft players out there who are salivating at the thought of the upcoming changes.  The new hotness on the horizon, so to speak.  Entire classes are being revamped (hello Warlocks).  The talent system, glyphs, all being changed.  In many cases, people will have to go back to the drawing board and hit the learning curve to play their class with any degree of competency once again.

Now me, I’m not a numbers guy.  I sure as Hell don’t feel like sitting around in front of a targeting dummy to relearn what I’m supposed to be doing in the 5.0 era.  Greater minds than mine are looking forward to that sort of thing, and more power to them.  I’ve seen video footage from the beta regarding some of the upcoming class changes, and from what I can tell it’s not all that great news for my Frost Death Knight and my Warrior.  Hence, I am somewhat less than excited about the changes.

Of course, I understand that things change from the beta, to the PTR, and to the live servers.  But despite all the testing, major patches tend to bring major problems – from server issues to class bugs to general unbalance.  If I wanted to deal with that kind of disorganized mess, I wouldn’t have to log into an online video game that I’m paying to play.  I’d just leave my cave and step out into the sunlight.  It’s kinda like paying for a massage and expecting a happy ending, but getting a surprise Brazilian Wax instead.


I said rub and tug not AAAAAAHHHHH!

Personally, until the patch 5.0 dust settles, I’ll be keeping my head low and saving myself the headache until things sort themselves out.  What about you?  Are you looking forward to 5.0 going live?
