World of Warcraft Patch 3.1.0 UlduarSo, as always, the face of World of Warcraft is ever changing. With this most recent patch we see some interesting ideas being implemented, some new areas opening up and as always, huge changes to every class within at least one talent specialization.

I’m not going over the changes to classes or professions or any of that (even though I would like to know which was the profession that got a 32 slot herb bags and how you obtain the right to make them)–You can find all those things on Wowhead, including up-to-date talent calculators. Instead, what I am going to go over is some of the Epicness of Ulduar, who exactly is Yogg-Saron is and why you should care & probably some other stuff as well.

First off, did anyone else see the sweet video that Blizzard posted on patch day? A lot of interesting things happen, including a brief clash. Yogg-Saron, the old God of death gets mentioned, and as luck would have it, he is a boss in Ulduar. It turns out the Titans forced all the old Gods underground and imprisoned them there, because killing them would have killed Azeroth. It is believed, due to what is said in the video, that Yogg is the source of corruption you see across much of Northrend, and is pretty much controlling everything you will face in Ulduar. Suffice to say he is as much an antagonist as Arthus or the Lich King in WoW:WotLK. Yogg’s voice can now even be heard whispering things to player who venture into the Ymirheim Saronite Mines and Whisper Gulch.

Tarsonus on the plains of Nagrand

This is going to be the second installment of the true-life accounts of a cow person, just trying to make it in the world, and his IRL alter ego’s battle through depression and life changes. (To catch up, here’s Part I.)

Right before I left that morning, I said goodbye to all my guildies, unsure of what to expect when I reached the hospital. Tarsonus was relaxing, ready for sleep after a long night of leveling out in the Blasted Lands. I wandered to an inn, to be sure I could level with ease once I returned home later. As I logged out, I knew today was going to be one of the hardest of my life.

August 4th, 2008 is a day in my life I will never forget. It was blistering hot, the sun was bearing down on everyone outside that day. Everywhere I looked it seemed like such a peaceful day. Everyone buzzed about their business, my friends and I made jokes, I chain smoked cigarette after cigarette. Everything seemed normal, except that we were outside of the hospital and my mother was upstairs, hooked up to machines to make her breathe, slowly slipping away from me and everyone else who loved her. I felt horrible at the time for thinking, but I didn’t want to be there. I didn’t want to be anywhere. Even Azeroth had lost its shine and shimmer for me at this time. Dalvengyr (my server) was no longer my sanctuary from the outside world, simply another reminder that time eventually passed and things changed. Outside, my friends chattered on and I am sure I did too, though I couldn’t tell you the conversation. I hated everything and everyone for feeling normal. For being able to smile without a false sense of hope.
