I can help you up or make you fall.
You had some of the best times you’ll never remember with me:
Alcohol

It’s patch day!! Huzzah!!

If don’t care to read through everything, here are some highlights from patch 2.4.3:

Paris Hilton and new new line of bags and jewelry. Though the jewlery is more fluff than anything, how many of you hunters will shell out the 2100g for a new 22 slot bag? Not I. I’ll wait to see what WotLK will bring us that’s a little more pocketbook friendly.

Mounts at level 30! Gratz all you lowbie hunters. Give your Aspect of the Cheetah a rest.

Two new time management features: in-game clock and stopwatch. Let’s face it, time flies when you’re having fun. Blizz has added a small clock located on the bottom of your mini-map that keeps track of in-game time and real time. Or if you have trouble managing time, type /sw or /stopwatch will allow you to use the new stopwatch feature. This is a nice little addition to help you keep track of timed events or even helps you manage your WoW time and Real-Life time more efficiently. No more punching in late for work – got it? ^_~

GM help interface has been simplified. Yay, very nice feature! I’m not afraid to report someone for using off-colored comments, using exploits in pvp or even if I see a someone botting. But I was never really sure which file I should click to categorize my complaint under. Now we have 3 easy choices, “Talk to GM,” “Report Issue,” and “Character Stuck.”Straight to the point.

Nether Ray Fry pet is now available for purchase if you have exalted reputation with Skyguard. This is something else for you non-combat pet lovers to add to your collection. Gotta’ collect ’em all.

Cooking: Juicy Bear Burgers now correctly increase healing as well as spell damage. Well that’s nice. I know a Panda Bear who may really like these. I just won’t tell him what the main ingredient is. XD

Hunter Snake Trap will no longer break players out of stealth if the snakes pass near the stealthed character. Bummer, that’s what I really liked about Snake Trap too. It was fun to watch all your snakes make a bee-line for that rogue hiding in the bushes.

Cheat Death: This talent has been rebalanced significantly. Killing blows are no longer 100% absorbed. If the Rogue is below 10% health, the killing blow is still completely absorbed; if the Rogue is over 10% health, enough damage will be absorbed to reduce the Rogue’s health down to 10%. For the following 3 seconds, damage is not always reduced by 90%; it is now reduced by a maximum of 90%, depending on how much resilience the Rogue has. The damage reduction will be four times the damage reduction resilience causes against critical strikes. Ha-ha-ha-haaaa~ Personally I don’t think this is a huge nerf to the talent but hopefully I won’t see any more rogues running away with 1% HP as I shoot away at them while nothing happens. This may also make rogues who pvp with a mix of pvp/pve gear consider stacking a little more resilience if they want to live longer.

And finally,

Alcohol cooldowns have been rolled into Drinks: All 10-second cooldowns have been removed and replaced with the 1-second Drink cooldown. Woo-hoo, because I do enjoy a good drunk Alterac Valley run. Bottoms up!
