Let's get it on... again! Yes, while the level 30 mount news
got a lot of play, and Rogues had to grapple with the Cheat Death nerf
, there was one tasty morsel of news hiding in the patch 2.4.3
notes: Clockwork Rocket Bots
will be back up to fighting shape! I've had this Winter's Veil gift in my pack from last December, and was bummed when they removed the ability of the bots
to fight each other when summoned out. Now, finally, when two players have them summoned close to each other, the little bots (which look a little bit like Wall-E
, don't they?) will throw down.
According to the patch notes, the problem was a little strange, too -- the robots were supposedly attacking other people in the Arena. No idea why the bots
would see other players as attackable targets in the Arena, but there you go. Unfortunately, the bots still aren't buffable, as they once were
-- it was actually a really fun minigame trying to keep those little bots alive as they fought, but at this point, your bot is on its own. Which means when my bot comes by, your bot better watch its little bot-ty back! Fight!
