An Ode To Starfall
Not your usual wall of text today, just a quick update.
Moonkin will never be the same
The PTR 4.0.6 patch notes are full of important stuff that I should probably comment on, but one item stood out for me:
Starfall will no longer strike targets that are not in combat and will now drop stars at a slightly faster rate.
Oh Starfall, why did you have to go change?
I loved you as you were, despite everyone’s gripes
You were so magnificent, pulling everything in range
You caused us so many amusing wipes
You gave me a reason to make fun of moonkin
and someone else to blame
I always thought that you were really something
I could count on to stay the same
Er… yeah, that’s enough. I should never ever try to write poems. I am very sorry. The point is, although I know that this will be a boost to Moonkin DPS on trash because they won’t have to live in fear of pulling the entire room, it still makes me a little sad to see it change. It is just one of those things that will fall into WOW’s history as an amusing anecdote.
I’ve been doing a little work behind the scenes on some static pages that I wanted to share:
- Power Auras Tutorial – a quick overview of Power Auras Classic and a walk-through of an example (also accessible under Resources > UI > Power Auras from the menu)
- Addons List – a list of all the addons I currently use (also accessible under Resources > UI > Addons List from the menu)
- Website Information – hosting information, WordPress plugins, etc. (also accessible under About > Website Information from the menu)
A Generous Gift
Vidyala from Manalicious offered 5-minute sketches to commenters on her Blogaversary post. I’ve been a long-time fan of her lovely WOW art, so this really excited me. I don’t think she realized just how many comments she would get!
Last night she posted a bunch of these sketches, and to my delight, my shaman was among them:
So thanks again to Vidyala for being so wonderful! She really captured the spirit of the characters of so many in the community, with simple black-and-white sketches. It was very generous of her to donate her time and skill.
