Happy Patch Day!

The servers will be going down in a few short hours for patch 3.0.2: Echoes of Doom!

  • The above guide only concerns itself with patch 3.0.2. I’ll make a separate guide for WotLK that has leveling specs, etc.  I’m also working on gear lists and a few other goodies.

Hopefully there won’t be too many nasty surprises when the patch goes live in a few hours … and hopefully there will be some fun event (similar to the Scourge Invasion, or the opening of the Dark Portal).

I’ve been stressing a bit about getting my add-ons ready for the patch. Admittedly, I haven’t actually done much with them thus far.  I’ve been randomly pulling random stuff off of WowInterface (which, by the way, has its own add-on-updater tool) and testing out various add-ons.

I’ve put together something that looks like this:

And in combat:

I took some inspiration from Beska’s UI.  I’m not really digging where I was going with it, though (I can never find a good way to handle debuffs, or the combat log for that matter).  I may scrap it and start over again from scratch.  Messing with my UI and trying out new add-ons is something I really enjoy doing. Heck, I already found a better tool tip mod than CowTip (in the screenshot) with TipTop. Not that there was anything really wrong with CowTip; I just didn’t need the million customization options it gave me.

If you find any cool, new add-ons, let me know!

The list of things I need to do this patch just keeps growing: find add-ons, set keybindings, clear out quest logs, make new talent specs for all my characters… etc.  It’s enough to keep me busy and out of trouble for a while.  :) Thankfully there isn’t a lot of raiding going on right now.
