New poll: “Patch day” comes to WoW

October 13, 2010 By: Ladan Category: Cataclysm, class spec, patch day, progress raiding, talents

Last night, in my EU server guild raid, we ended up doing something fun (some old school raids), partly to diffuse the extra pent up energy that comes in anticipation of a big patch like what’s been happening this week to WoW servers all over the world. I commented that it felt like the night before the first day of school…. everyone reminding me to check my talents, spec, glyphs, reagents… yes, Mum, it’s all in my school bag. :P

So it’s back again–patch day. This one is quite significant, with changes to our classes and talent trees. It’s giving us a taste of what’s to come with Cataclysm in December. Everyone wants to be prepared, no one wants to fall behind.

So what is important to you when you are preparing for patch day? Select the choices in my latest poll so we can see where our focus tends to lie when we’ve got a new patch to prep for. If I forgot something, add a comment! This is a new type of poll, so I’m experimenting here.
