When it rains, it pours

The past week has been a flurry of reforging, enchanting, gemming and juggling for +hit for me. Opening up a new GoH vendor, getting 4k Honour points back from Blizzard (when I hadn't expected to), having enough Valour points and having good luck with Firelands trash saw me pick up:...all in the one week.

I'm pretty sure it must be because I gave up the PvP pants that dropped off Occu'thar to the correct hunter when the Master Looter mislooted them to me a couple of weeks ago.

Good karma FTW!

/petassist? More like /petconfuse

I hadn't really had too many problems with /petassist until recently, although I hadn't really liked the change to start with.

However, I've started to wonder if juggling your pet with /petassist might be possible new source of entertainment, because mine seems to do it a lot.

Seriously - has anyone managed to keep their pet bouncing between mobs but not actually hitting any of them for an entire raid trash pull? At least it'd make trash more interesting, if nothing else.

Casting Mis-HEAL-direct on ~Tank~

Has anyone else noticed that the current Misdirection animation sounds/looks like casting a heal?

I know it's a small thing, but I do play with game sounds and whilst it doesn't exactly put me off, it's still a little disconcerting.

Hope it's a bug and Blizzard changes it back; the old sound somehow seemed a lot more... decisive? More fitting, anyway - rather than the soothing sounds my druid makes when throwing a few HoTs up! :P

WoW's celebrity couple

I know his wife is dead, but seriously... why is it that the name "Mankrik" (or various spellings of it) must always appear somewhere in general chat?

Clearly, Hyjal is the new Barrens... but I suppose one positive thing is that Mankrik looks to have gotten over the death of his wife and moved on :P

(If you haven't seen why people keep asking for him in general chat, there's an Achievement)
