Rabid Wolf Smells A Bad Smell

This is me.  Seriously!

This is me. Seriously!

I am not impressed.

To say the least.

I should have seen it coming though.  It’s a big change.

But why oh why did they lift my hopes up, only to dash them away?

The ammo change that was announced might come out for 3.1.0 is most definitely not coming out then.  Blizzard says that they “still fully intend to move forward with this change when the additional functionality becomes available.”(WoWInsider, Breaking: Consumable ammunition will not be removed in patch 3.1, February 10th 2009, Adam Holisky)

So, naturally, I’m kinda upset.  Blizzard will try to make it up to us by allowing arrows to stack higher, by removing the need for quivers, and by making up for the loss of quiver-haste in some way, shape, or form.

This, by the way, is still a crock(or poo, for all you young’uns).  Okay, great! We lose our 24 slot bag for our arrows, and replace it with our 16 slot.  We still have to buy our arrows, but HOLY MACKEREL, they stack higher.  What’s higher? 400? 800? 1000? Who cares, the fact still remains that we have to buy these bastardly things in copious quantities.  We will still have to delegate a bag to them, probably.

Our haste is being made up for losing our quivers, huh? Well, how? I ask you.  It’s likely that when they release it, it’s going to be bugged and won’t work.  Or they’ll leave it out so that BM has a use for haste.

Okay, that’s a little far.  I know Blizzard won’t do that, or my name isn’t what it is.

Maybe I’m over reacting, but this still ticks me off.  This really, in the end, changes nothing for us.  So, that’s a hidden one, slipped under the radar.  I really wish Blizzard would stop sugar coating things.  I can get sugar for my coffee if I damn well feel like, but I’ll take it black, thanks.





  1. “try the gnome dey says…taste like chicken dey says…”

    Srsly – that shot is a lolwolf waiting to happen 😉

  2. I’m guessing they’ll change bullets/arrows to have the quiver-haste built into them. This way they can still change the number based on the ammo, so lvl 10’s wont be using +15% haste arrows.

    Awesome sauce picture is awesome sauce!

    @ Windpaw
    Lolwolf… I like it!

    @ Riffraff
    That’s what I’m going to guess as well…
    But knowing Blizzard, who knows?

  4. You, know, that’s a good point.

    Engineers are going to cry about this, aren’t they?


    Too bad, I say! Some engineers are jerks, and charge way too much.

  5. Dangit, now I have to buy ammo to raise Boogga’s gun skill (why, I don’t know cause I hate guns with a passion, just to have it at 400 I guess). Was going to wait til they put this in but meh, don’t want to wait that long.

    As an aside, Razuvious dropped his bow for Boogga tonight!! /happydance
