That store button is back, and it wants you to touch it

Patch 54 PTR The Store button is back
Guess who's back, back again on the patch 5.4 PTR... yes, it's that sneaky Store button. And yes, yes I did click it. I must have clicked it a hundred times, just in case this one was the time that it would work. I will log back in in a moment just to try again. Just in case. It still didn't work. This was the very best I got it to generate for me, and that was only on a fresh reload of my UI.

The button itself, as much as you can discuss the quality of a button, isn't too obnoxious. Let's be realistic, Blizzard was never going to have a singing dancing button with big flashing arrows pointing at it, constantly in the player's face. But this little, subtle thing in the micro-menu is just fine.

While we wait for more information, and for the store itself to appear on the PTR, rather than just that teasing button and this rather trolly UI error, WoW Insider has the things to keep you all Store-y. The WoW Insider Round Table waxed lyrical on how they'd happily pay for just about anything, the Community Blog Topic discussed what should and shouldn't be available, and we wondered whether Battle Coins could be a new in-game currency for the store. Is any of it serving to soothe your worries about the store?

Show your pet some love with Happy Pet Snacks


Ok, this is getting silly. Breanni from the pet store in Dalaran seems to be widening her offerings and now sells Happy Pet Snacks for 47 silver and 50 copper for a stack of five. While we're not exactly in the habit of promoting every little product she's peddling, it's really hard to resist something this cute. It's not quite the Papa Hummel's Old-Fashioned Biscuits I hinted at over at my last post about the Pet Grooming Kit, but it's a pet snack you can give to non-combat pet to make them love you more. Literally -- when you feed them, a tiny heart pops up over their heads, just like when Love Is In The Air. The coolest part? It stacks with the grooming kit! So we can actually have sparkly pets that show us just how much they love us.

Unfortunately, this won't work on Hunter pets to get their mood up -- you'll have to give them real food for that! Vanity pets have always been one of small things in the game that I enjoyed, even if I didn't obsessively collect all of them. I even have my Mini Tyrael key bound, although I have yet to install the MiniPet AddOn that reminds me when I don't have him out. Even though this build was loaded with nerfs, the developers managed to insert a lot of happy things, too, like lots of new icons for items and spells, including a proper one for my Captured Firefly!

While it's easy to notice huge changes like world zones, class nerfs, and whopper talents, it's little touches like these that keep the game light and fun for me. Blizzard always manages to keep a sense of humor about the game, and it just works. When Mumper talked about having vendors sell more interesting stuff in Dalaran, I'm sure he was thinking of Breanni, too. When Wrath of the Lich King finally goes live, a trip to her little store is definitely on my agenda. As usual, thanks to Wietkop for the heads up!
