As for the patch, mixed feelings abound from all camps. For transmogrification there is great news! Beyond being able to mog axes, swords, and maces to whichever of those you would like, they have brought back the Burning Crusade classic blacksmithing weapons as current content upgrades. This will make Amerisia happy, VERY happy indeed. :p
"As the heroes conquer the Isle, they will unlock the powerful Lightning Forge, which will allow Blacksmiths to forge mighty raid-worthy items, as well as classic weapons from the past."
In PvP news, I am out of a weeks long funk when it comes to my second favorite pastime. Flying around the Alliance base on Arithan, I found as many Horde as I could and killed all I could until they were all gone. Then onto Aellin, I assaulted the Alliance base, tower and graveyard until all the Alliance were dead. Then BACK onto Arithan as Horde amassed once more. At one point, it was Arithan vs. 7 Horde and holding his own. Kill one or two, while fending off the onslaught. Run back, try again. And again. Finally, he conquered 4 Horde at once and they started to dissipate. Good, clean, WHOLESOME FUN! :p
