Spiritual Guidance: Shadow priest news bulletin (as narrated by a discipline priest)

Image
Every week, WoW Insider brings you Spiritual Guidance for discipline, holy and shadow priests. On alternate Wednesdays, shadow priesting expert Fox Van Allen comes from out of the shadows to bask in your loving adoration.

I had just zoned into the instance when the rogue died.

I was running Temple of the Jade Serpent on the Mists of Pandaria beta as a promise to a friend who hadn't had the foresight to invite a tank or DPS. We were two healers and an enhancement shaman, organized enough to be on Vent but still ultimately at the mercy of the Dungeon Finder. My expectations were low.

All the same, six minutes later, we drew a warrior tank and a rogue. Now all we had to do was decide which healer was healing. The resto druid didn't want to DPS; rather, he "couldn't" because he only knew how to play feral and lacked a suitable weapon to actually do so. That meant by default I would have to go shadow, so I started readjusting my bars to do so.

When the druid finished resurrecting the rogue, we set right to work on our next trash pack. I found myself fumbling about, unsure why Vampiric Embrace was on cooldown and where Devouring Plague had gone. My friend, the enhancement shaman, took notice.

"When was the last time you played shadow?" he asked.

"Well, I have my rotation written on the back of an envelope I had on my desk," I replied.

Immediately he laughed, but from the way it awkwardly trailed off, I knew he was losing faith.

BlizzCon 2011 virtual tickets potentially giving out last year's pet

Blizzard has posted that it is looking into an issue with players who purchased the newest BlizzCon virtual ticket for the 2011 show. Some purchasers have received last year's pet Deathy after purchasing this year's ticket. Blizzard is looking into whether or not this should be happening; whether or not this was a mistake or a miscommunication, we do not yet know. It is safe to assume, however, that a new pet will become available for BlizzCon 2011, and purchasers of the 2011 virtual ticket should not be getting last year's BlizzCon exclusive Deathy pet.

One of the perks of purchasing the BlizzCon virtual ticket is that players are treated to a BlizzCon exclusive in-game companion pet. In 2010, that pet was Deathy, a Deathwing-inspired version of everyone's favorite murloc. As in every previous year, a new companion pet (or a mount, once) has been given to BlizzCon attendees. Players and purchasers were potentially confused, as the new pet for BlizzCon this year has not yet been announced. When Blizzard does announce this year's BlizzCon pet, we'll be the first to let you know.

BlizzCon 2010 pets for DirecTV subscribers arrive

If you subscribed to the DirecTV feed for BlizzCon 2010, then you should run and check your email. We've had multiple confirmed sources report the redemption code to receive Deathy has been sent to viewers.

Once you redeem the code, the pet will appear in your characters' in-game mailboxes. Go check it out and show off your murloc pride with this half-dragon, half-adorable pet! With Cataclysm right around the corner, now's the time to let Deathy see the world as it is before it gets torn asunder by his inspiration: Deathwing. Don't worry about him acting strangely -- the little guy is already out of rehab.

The email will come from blizzcon@rayv.com, which is the DirecTV publisher for the event.

Patch 4.0.3: Deathy is going to rehab

Deathy's identity crisis will be over before Cataclysm, according to Nethaera. His days of thinking he's Grunty the Murloc will be over once he goes through "rehabilitation" of some sort. Judging from the words Nethaera uses, Deathy will be fixed in patch 4.0.3.

Nethaera
For those of you who attended or watched BlizzCon 2010 and claimed a Deathy pet, you may have noticed that he's acting strange. In fact, he seems to think he's Grunty the Murloc Marine. This is an unintended consequence of the groupthink from which all murlocs suffer. Deathy will be undergoing an extensive rehabilitation program and should be acting appropriately destructive once his idol, Deathwing, shatters the world in an upcoming patch that will debut prior to the release of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm.

BlizzCon 2010 exclusive pet Deathy still has no custom emotes and sounds

Deathy the murloc, BlizzCon 2010's exclusive companion pet, is currently without his own animation set. At this point in time, Deathy occasionally will make the rifle sounds that Grunty, his space-faring murloc counterpart, usually makes. In addition, his sound emotes are the same as Grunty, and some of his animations include those of the murloc suit.

At the World of Warcraft art panel during BlizzCon, however, we were treated to a sneak peak of Deathy's custom animations, including jumping up into the air and scorching the ground in a torrent of fire breath. Suffice to say, it was really awesome. Hopefully we will get an update soon or, potentially, with 4.0.3.

Cataclysm Beta: New mounts and companion pets in build 12984

Meet Deathy. He's one of the new companion pets that will be joining us in Cataclysm. He won't be the only one, though, as the latest build added a host of new mounts and pets.


Mounts & Pets

Mounts
  • Ultramarine Qiraji Battle Tank Summons and dismisses a rideable Ultramarine Qiraji Battle Tank. This is a very fast mount.
  • Sandstone Drake Transforms you into a Sandstone Drake, allowing you to fly very fast and carry an ally on your back.
  • Mottled Drake Summons and dismisses a rideable Mottled Drake. This is a very fast mount.
  • Kron'Kar Annihilator Summons and dismisses the Kron'Kar Annihilator. This is a very fast mount. cast
Companion Pets
  • Deathy Right Click to summon and dismiss Deathy. / Instant
  • Guild Herald Right Click to summon your guild's Herald for up to 5 min.
  • Guild Page Right Click to summon your guild's Page for up to 5 min.
  • Gold Mini Jouster Right Click to summon and dismiss a Gold Mini Jouster.
  • Blue Mini Jouster Right Click to summon and dismiss a Blue Mini Jouster.
  • Tiny Shale Spider Right Click to summon and dismiss the Tiny Shale Spider.
  • Pebble Right Click to summon and dismiss Pebble. / Instant
  • Landro's Lil' XT Right Click to set down or pick up your Landro's Lil' XT action figure.
  • Enchanted Lantern Right Click to summon and dismiss your Enchanted Lantern.
  • Magic Lamp Right Click to summon and dismiss your Magic Lamp. / Instant
  • Elementium Geode Right Click to summon and dismiss your Elementium Geode.
  • Mr. Grubbs Right Click to summon and dismiss Mr. Grubbs.
  • Brazie's Sunflower Right Click to summon and dismiss Brazie's Sunflower.

I wonder if the Gold and Blue Mini Jousters will interact with each other in some fashion. That'll be somewhat entertaining during downtime in raids. The Sandstone Drake is a mount I'd be interested in grabbing, as well, due to its shapeshifting and passenger capability.

I know there isn't a whole lot of information yet on the mounts or pets, but what are you looking forward to picking up?

BlizzCon 2010 pet revealed

At last, it's begun. Who's the most adorable lava-coated mutant fish man ever? This year's BlizzCon exclusive pet, that's who!

BlizzCon 2010 World of Warcraft & StarCraft II In-Game Items
"Death will rise from the tide!" Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain once warned -- and at BlizzCon 2010, the band's dire musical prophecy will finally come to pass. Everyone who attends this year's BlizzCon or purchases the BlizzCon Virtual Ticket will receive an exclusive set of murlocalyptic in-game items for World of Warcraft and StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty. World of Warcraft players will be joined by Deathy, a murloc companion decked out as Deathwing and doing his best to strike fear into the hearts of Azeroth's crustacean population. You'll also be able to display your tidal pride in StarCraft II with a Murloc Marine character portrait and a pair of deep-sea decals to emblazon on your units, each with a different terran, protoss, and zerg design.

BlizzCon 2010 takes place on October 22 and 23 at the Anaheim Convention Center. For further details or to order the BlizzCon Virtual Ticket, visit www.BlizzCon.com.


Oh, Deathy. You complete me. I think I will have no other choice but to order the PPV of BlizzCon this yeah, because I can't make the flight to Anaheim and I simply must have this pet. This is the most ridiculously awesome volcanic monstrosity I have ever seen in my entire life. (Yes, even you pale before him, Gorthamal. Sorry.)

For more details, check out the BlizzCon site.
