Random Thursday Friday Thoughts

Bleh, late due to feeling bleh, so here are some bleh:

  • Blizzard appears to be starting to take serious note of the Wrath leak sites. The 'Official' (see: not official) leak site has been (temporarily?) muzzled and other leak sites are getting a little twitchy. Ironically it's probably Blizz's PR department flexing it's muscles - pre-release info is magazine fodder and they tend to guard said info jealously.

  • Apart from that there hasn't really been any new interesting Alpha content which hasn't been chewed over ad nauseum on the more high-brow discussion sites/blogs. My gut tells me that Hunter/Paladin talents should be expected in mid-July along with the rumoured Dalaran Alpha patch. Till then, any denouncements of Wrath from Paladins on the official forums should probably be treated with laughter rather than credence

  • As I noted earlier in the week 2.4.3 is due to be released quite soon, including the long anticipated 'Pre-Expansion Money Sink'. No news on if Grifta will be using his grafting skills to flog a 'Genuine Gigantik' 18-sloter for 50g a piece.

  • As I write Croatia is playing Turkey in the Euro 2008 4tr Finals. Having monstered their way through their group I think they should beat Turkey handily. However take that with a pinch of salt, I didn't expect Germany to school the Portuguese as they did.

  • A Website to put in your daily favourites if you haven't already: NASA's Astronomy Picture of the Day. Not all of them are hardcore astronomy per se, for instance today's is a great pick of the Moon on the Grecian Horizon.

  • Grats need to go to Honorshammer who has just been drawn for a Figureprint Model, he's now just got to decide what gear he goes for (power-gathering Judgement and a Sulfuras is the obvious answer ;) ). Also deserving of Grats is Alex whose Paladin Firelight is now the owner of Darkmoon Card:Crusade and Shard of Contempt. This should make a big difference to his personal DPS as Rage (his guild on SWC-EU) moves forward to Illidan and then Sunwell. Fingers crossed they can make it to Kil'Jaedan before the expansion hits.

  • I think that's if for now. There was something else, but I can't for the life of me remember what it is. Bah, I'll update this post later if I can think of it.
