What I think of Patch 6.2 and Giveaway!

We all know that last week Blizzard dropped Patch 6.2 upon us, after what feels like a very long wait time.

Which meant NEW content! I personally was super excited to have new content, as I and my guildies were getting burnt out on the same daily grind of garrison missions,.... and no progress towards flying.( I'm not really going to go into flying; but I will say that I'm glad there is compromise for it, a meta-achievement required and rep to FINALLY get flying back.... makes for a happy camper.)

After months of waiting for this patch, we got Tanaan Jungle.... about time. How do I feel about the new zone?
First off, let my start by saying that I'm not that far into the dailies in the jungle, as I just haven't had that much time between work and everything else going on. My first couple of rounds through Tanaan, left me feeling like it is basically Timeless Isle amped up. Dailies, plus rare spawns for gear, achievements etc. I feel like so far there isn't much story, but again I'm not that far into it, so only time will tell. From what I've read, there is story....I'm assuming it's gated behind the numerous dailies and campaigns, and unlocks gradually..? Correct me if I'm wrong. The Objective Hubs are interesting, and the treasure hunting is always a cool find, I mean who doesn't love toys and pets, right?

The Shipyard
 I finally realized why there is that exit gate out of the back of our garrisons that lead to cliffs.
The shipyard is nothing spectacular,... just another hub of your garrison, but with ships instead of followers. I finally got mine to level 2, and now have submarines. Getting extra gear/runes, and treasure is always a bonus as well. I also love the little names that they come up with, one in particular on my Guardian Druid, was " Bad Juju", how fitting.

The Adventure Guide

This is the updated version of the Dungeon Journal, which I am in love with. I like the fact that it offers you things to do, and let's you join groups/ ques right there. Makes it painless and easy.

Bonus Events
 The Bonus Events system consists of a rotating schedule of seven different activities, currently scheduled to run from Friday through Monday of each week.
As  a guild leader I really like that Blizzard added these bonus events into game. Makes more things available to us on the weekends, and allows guildies to spend more time with each other.
Timewalking Dungeons
Love, love, love these! It was like a blast from the past, but with decent gear drops. They are a nice change of pace, and were fun to do, I look forward to running them on my alts, next time they are up for a weekend.

Armor Preview

I'm not exactly excited for many of these... they just seem lackluster. The druid tier isn't half bad, but the hunter ( for my GL toon ) is aweful! To each his own though.

New Pets and Mounts
This is another thing that I'm super excited about, the new pets and mounts available through the factions in Tanaan. I want to collect the  rare pets:

    Periwinkle Calf
    Zangar Spore
    Seaborne Spore
    Nightmare Bell

The Legendary continues

The legendary questline.... I'm glad that it's continued, and I'm slowly getting there. I WILL finish the Legendary this expansion... I kind of slacked off on the legendary in MoP. My bad.

Hellfire Citadel Raid

Having a new raid is nice. Our guild got started late in this expansion for raiding, due to things happening with team, and we've been beating our heads against certain bosses in BRF. It's time to move on and go forward. We went into Hellfire last night, and WOW. The new bosses look pretty awesome, and it's fresh. Something to look forward too. I will update on this section once we get further in the raid. 
There are some things I haven't touched on, but that would lead into a very long blog post. Overall I'm enjoying this patch, there has been a lot of love/hate in the past week since it was released, but it's decent and having new content makes it better... the wait we had for it though, kinda sucked.

What do you guys think of Patch 6.2? Love it? Hate it? Discuss

I'm also doing a giveaway if you enter with the rafflecopter below, and follow the instructions.
I'm giving away a mount worth $25 off the Blizzard store for WoW, of winners choice. Choose a MOUNT .

A couple of changes, and update.

I have been MIA on here for about two months. Things at  work got crazy for a bit, with doing midnights and overtime; but have evened out. A big change, is I got my full-time that I applied for at work, so I've been trying to juggle family, with full-time, plus all the side errands and of course raiding with my guild Emphatica in World of Warcraft.

Now that I feel like I've gotten a handle on the work, and juggling act, and making time for .. almost everything, I can finally free up time to blog again, and get back to weekly posts.

So this is just to update, our little one is speaking more and more every day. She amazes me all the time. She finished her first block of speech therapy a couple of weeks ago, and now doesn't go back until early fall. She still has her play groups every Wednesday and Fridays with her little trips to Tim Hortons afterwards... since the weather has been more like summer lately, she gets outside, a lot. She loves going on walks with her dad, and she even makes it around the block....well half being in her wagon, walking, or being carried on dads back. You know, toddler style, the only way to go.

In World of Warcraft, my guild Emphatica-US on Dawnbringer, has been slowly but surely progressing in Black Rock Foundry. Gruul, is pretty much on farm, Hanz and Franz is a little messy near the end, but they will soon be on farm as well, and we've got Beastlord to 9%. Our biggest thing holding us back is not having more DPS. I'm hoping that with new content, people will be more interested in joining guilds to progress....instead of using LF group finder.... that's another topic for another day though.

Which reminds me, my guild IS recruiting, follow me on Twitter and send me a DM, if interested, I usually have all my info on there multiple times throughout the week.

Sorry for such a short update, everyone, oh and before I forget my husband is turning thirty in two days. The big 3-0! I'm gonna bug him the rest of the year lol.

I will be posting an entry tomorrow morning which will include my World of Warcraft Mount giveaway.

I want to enjoy 6.2 tonight, so that is why the entries won't start until tomorrow. Here's a heads up, to enter, it will involve Twitter, and a question/ discussion about 6.2.... be prepared!

Have a great night everyone, and I'll see you in Azeroth, until tomorrow!
