WoW Insider has the latest on the Mists of Pandaria!

I'm clamming it up


I was doing a bit of research tonight for upcoming articles about patch 3.0.8, and I came across some more changes to clams. Yes you read that right, clams. The little things you get after killing every damn murloc and sea creature.

This topic deserves an article for a few reasons. First, let's take a look at all the changes to clams since 3.0.2:
  • Clams are now stackable in stacks of 20. (Patch 3.0.2)
  • Players can now open clams while riding a vehicle, sitting, mounted, stealthed, and invisible. (Patch 3.0.8)
I look at this and think to myself "Some at Blizzard spent time thinking about different conditions that clams needed to be opened up in, wrote out a list, discussed it with someone, and then implemented the changes."

And further, someone said "Clams take up too much bag space, let's let them be stacked together."

Okay, so the latter isn't too silly. But this change that's coming in 3.0.8 allowing them to be opened while in non-default states is just weird.

I'm not saying that Blizzard should be doing anything other than fixing our massive clam dilemma. In some ways I'm glad that the game has come down to fixing clams.

But if you're at all like me, it does raise an eyebrow, doesn't it?

Author's Note: Yes, I know the Simpson's quote is "say it... say chowder..." But it sounds much better with the word clam in there.
