Is it just me or was the wind was taken out of Patch 4.3's sails with the announcement of Pandaria?With the exception of Transmogrification nobody seems to care about the upcoming content patch at all. Even The Queue questions have little if anything to do with 4.3. I was excited for the new raid finder, void storage, and mortal strike buff (with apologies to PvP Healers). Now I'm feeling kind of "Meh." about the whole thing.Am I alone and burnt out, or are other players feeling the same way as Cataclysm ages?

Have you seen the two Deathwing fights? The fact that this will be available through the new LFR is incredibly exciting for me.

I am REALLY looking forward to the LFR thing. I've never done 25 person raiding.

The timing of the Mists announcement was unfortunate, but pretty much unavoidable. They couldn't have released 4.3 before Blizzcon, and they couldn't wait a whole year to announce Mists at the next Blizzcon.As for excitement: Mogging, Dragon Soul, new non-troll heroics, usable keybindings for my mactop, T13, and the Raid Finder..... I'm pretty excited.

No new features have been announced for 4.3, and everything has been covered to death. There's a new nugget here and there, but it looks like they are just finishing tuning the bosses and the 5 mans at this point. 4.3 is the culmination of the Cataclysm story. I hope it resolves things, especially after reading the Thrall book. I think I'm a little more hyped for the pre-expansion 5.0 patch though, especially being an Alliance member. The attack on Theramore and the ascension of Varian as the "king the alliance needs" sounds like a good setup for the conflict Metzen focused on at Blizzcon. I guess the only question that could be asked about 4.3 is When??? After Thanksgiving is my call.

I felt the same way. Mop seems so awesome all I want is to play. I know when 4.3 drops though it will be occupying a ton of time. Faster dungeons and LFR sounds amazing.

Have you forgotten Rogue Legendaries?!I'm excited for the patch!
11-03-2011 @ 11:28AM
Meant to say no new features announced recently, so nothing to really ask about that hasn't been asked already. I'm sure at 4.3 launch, the Queue will be inundadted with "Why can't I transmog using X legendary," "where can I buy tier gear with valor," and questioins on LFR.

"No new features have been announced for 4.3, and everything has been covered to death. There's a new nugget here and there, but it looks like they are just finishing tuning the bosses and the 5 mans at this point."How come everyone's forgotten that we still haven't gotten any hands-on time with Darkmoon Island? :(

Hell no son!I am extremely anxious and excited about the imminent release of 4.3... New dungeons... never having to do a full-length troll run again... being able to raid on all my alts without having to herd 9 or 24 cats that are my guildies... new gear, new storyline, and new RAID!!! Probably a new PvP Season... Transmogrification - changing how all my toons look, Void Storage, OH GOD THIS PATCH IS GOING TO BE AMAZING!

Haven't you heard? PANDAZ!!!!!!!!!!!(Apparently we're still supposed to TRY to kill some dragon first, but... idk... whatever.)PANDAZ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
11-03-2011 @ 11:48AM
Personally, I'm just looking forward to not having to kill Jindo and/or Dakaara 7 times a week. BRING ON THE NEW 5 MANS!

Nothing in MoP is as exciting as raid finder. I love raiding but my schedule does not allow for regular raid times and my server ( anvilmar horde) is dead with no pug community. The success or failure of raid finder will likely determine whether I stick with game or not. And no, I don't want to pay for server transfer.

(cutaia): good call, that's the only other announced feature that hasn't been tested on the PTR yet. I could see the Darkmoon Faire become centralized around the pet battle system as well. Wandering Masters, anyone?4.3 is going to be hype, and I can't wait to tank and spank Deathwing! 5.0 though gives me chills thinkibg about how they push the conflict forward.
11-03-2011 @ 12:56PM
Blizzcon had one big theme "How to keep players"
11-03-2011 @ 1:14PM
Darkmoon Faire!Three new dungeons!These will keep me busy for a long time.

Lt. Horatio Cain speculates that, "When MoP drops, it will be complete....."/sunglasses"Pandamonium"YEAAAAHHHHHHH!!! WON'T GET FOOLED AGAIN!!!

Yes, it's like the whole world (of Warcraft) has forgotten about patch 4.3. I think with the announcement of MoP, we can all breathe a collective sigh of relief that our long (inter)national nightmare known as Cataclysm is almost over. That's how bad Cataclysm was--Blizzard said, "Panda monks!" and the fanbase said, "Hooray!"Having said that, I can't WAIT to kill Jaina...and I'm Alliance. I'm looking forward to it like an early Christmas.

@Andy: You nailed it there. Now that the launch heroics will award the same amount of VP in 4.3, it will cut way down on the monotony. Not to mention new heroics as well. I can't believe I am saying this, but I kind of miss the other heroics...except for Vortex Pinnacle. Screw those windbags. (Seewutididthar?)

A lot of the content in 4.3 doesn't apply to my play style. I don't raid, and I don't do Heroics. Since the new dungeons are only available as Heroics, it's basically content I won't bother with. I am hoping to get enough honor / justice points together to buy some T12 and other gear for my warlock, and I am looking forward to tmogging my heirlooms. Darkmoon Faire Island sounds fun but I have this sneaking suspicion that I'm getting burned out and hitting the wall. Pandaria sounds like everything I've wanted in an expansion (except for the new resource systems for warlocks), but I'm feeling more and more anxious than anything else. Like, Cataclysm was such a huge disappointment for me, I don't want to get hit with an even worse package. I'm really hoping that 4.3 surprises me with its awesomeness, and that 5.0 hails a new era of... ummm... additional awesomeness.
