Logged into the game, already in Org and was like woah, whole new world, ha! Looks clean, but far too easy to get lost right now.

again...nice changes, and tons of them with this new patch.  Org was frustrating to begin with, but is just awesome now.  Running my alts through the new areas like Southern Barrens, etc, and loving how easy it is to group up for dungeon runs.  Still loving my Orc prot warrior above all, but that's why its called my main.  I'm not sure if I like that little tricycle everyone is shooting for, but I'm wearing the talbard for the rep anyway.  I'm sure there will be other benefits along the way.  The new blue gear is also pretty cheesy, but it will only push me harder to get the new tier sets.  Game just keeps getting better overall, and only 11 days to Cat.

Sarah...I'm sure you've seen the trikes by now, as just about everyone has one.  Kinda like my Headless Horseman mount =(.  I used to feel like the only one who had that mount and now they're everywhere.  I have the rep for the trike, but probably won't be riding on it much.  Too 'toys r us' for an orc to ride on.  We ride on beasts of death!!!  lol  New changes are awesome, and loving running the new / old dungeons with my alts.  I'm just a little upset about the Cat server launch time being 12am pst for the first time since WoW has been out.  Guess Blizz devs just wants to cut off the majority of the country off for 3 hours just so they can play first and get world first achievements.  Oh well, nothing's perfect.  Happy hunting.

Who's 85?  Who is replacing their epic gear with greens?  What a great launch day, with little issues, and tons of fun.

I didn't get to play until I got home last night, but I made sure to get to 81 before my night was over. It makes me cry a little to see my hard earned epic gear being replaced by these insane green drops that seem to be dropping like candy.

I am loving the underwater zone, it makes me want to sing.."under the sea" the entire time I am down there. There is a lot of easter eggs within that zone as well which is making it fun also.

All in all it has been a well handled launch by Blizzard, they have handled mob spawning issues for zone overloads, I experienced no lag at all during my game play, and everything has been very smooth and well performing. They have done an excellent job on the release and I look forward to further exploring Cata.

Oh, and the seahorse mount that I now have, totally cool.

yes, the mob spawning issues are gone.  I was killing a mob last night, and just stood there to re-kill the same for credit.  Very fast respawns, and very much needed with all the peeps. 
 
My gear getting replaced just reminds me of my first journey into the Outlands.  Made my tier set seem stupid, and made me a little sad too.

I almost cried when I replaced my Frozen Bonespike dagger on my Warlock with a simple green that dropped off a mob. Cry I ran ICC for weeks to get that weapon haha.
 
Blizz has handled the launch very well and respawn rate for mobs is awesome. I sold a stack of the new cloth the other day for 100g and I couldn't believe it. Working on my Alchemy now because early adopters will pay ANYTHING to have the newest stuff and it just makes me rich haha.

Yeah, I maxed out herbalism before the expansion went live so I could make some profit, especially since I don't do alchemy its pure sales for me on that. It helps fund the fact that im an engineer.

Yeah I wish I would have been thinking about working on herbalism. I got alchemy to 500 lastnight and made my first new epic trinket. Its pretty sweet to already have a new epic trinket and I'm not even 85 yet. Wish I could sell them I would make a boatload but its Alchemy specific and BoP =(

I only have mining to 475 so I could farm Elementium while I quest/lvl.  Don't want to miss those nodes if they're there.  I've also noticed that many of the mobs are mineable (if that's a word) after death, allowing you to gain more resources.  May explain the lack of nodes laying around.  I'm still just focusing on hitting 85 first, and then I'll max out everything.  Hopefully that will be tonight!

Yeah, im selling a stack of herbs from Cata at 250g a pop for each stack, some times more it depends on the herbs, and its all selling within 5 minutes of me placing the auction up.

I'm making a killing on herbs.

herbs seem less competitive than ore.  I was buying elementium yesterday for almost 500g a stack.  yes, I'm one of those that would rather spend than gold than dig, so at least I keep you frugal folks in business.  =)

Oh, im not frugal, I just know how to make my money. My main right now has engineering and herbalism, but my other toon has smithing and mining, so im pretty well covered in my needs, which is why I picked up herbalism to make extra money. I've made like 3k in the last day. Oh, and im 49% away from 85 then I can work on maxing out guild achievements and archeology while sitting in 45min + dungeon ques!

You've got it made in the shade!  I've only got my main, and I'm smith and mining too.  I have been doing the same thing while waiting on dungeons, all though the q's don't seem to take too long.  I also like the new archeology skill, and I'm having fun with that little telescope.  We are only at guild lvl 4 at the moment, but that will hopefully increase sooner than later.  Grats on the upcoming 85!!!  Less of a grind at that point =)
 
Anyone not liking the new expansion that sold 3.3 million in the first 24 hours?

One thing that does irk me though is that the reputation you can earn with your guild is maxed by weeks. It took me 2 days to max out my weekly reputation gain with the guild. So at this rate it is going to take me forever to max out my reputation with the guild in general, so that is a bit frustrating.

I would be curious to see how long it takes because once we run out of quests to do, it will be a lot harder to earn guild reputation as far as I am aware.

My guild is currently level 4 though, we are maxing out our daily xp gain within hours each day since we are all hard at work on playing, some of us around the clock, lol. We are already working on clearing all the heroic dungeons that are new, and gearing up for the raiding content.

We are not the best guild on the server, but we enjoy what we do and progress.

I totally am..to the point to where people could probably guess what I spent every free hour doing this weekend...

But its alright, because in the process of that, I still manage to have a full time job, an active social life, and if I didn't tell you I played WoW, you would probably never know, unless you looked at my Horde t-shirt, or my Horde beanie, or my Blizzcon hoodie..or my Horde keychain, or came into my house and saw the collectors editions on display in the livingroom...or the figurines from the game....are we seeing a pattern yet? lol

I agree that the guild leveling system is a bit 'whack' at best, but it is new and a work in progress.  (hopefully o.O)  The heriocs are nuts, but I'm loving the hp now too.  I'm 90k+ in Fury and 120+ in prot.  NICE.  I like the new dungeons and the challenges of each.  It's definitely a lot more fun than easlily slamming down randoms in Wrath.  That became tiresome.  Grats on the 85 tonight, and you're not a NERD.  The word is GEEK!  Zug Zug

I did hit 85 last night and now I am working on maxing out Archaeologyand let me tell you, they made it painfully slow and some what boring, but I continue on in the hopes of a pet, or a mount.

It involves a lot of traveling, a lot of patience and boredom! It is best done while waiting in que so you are being double productive. It took me 30 minutes to get to 20 skill points, and I flew all over Kalimdor in the process.

This is probably a stretch, but I was curious if Windows 7 and Cata would fit on a 40gb SSD.  (Including small addons or if the addons could go onto a HDD and WoW still benefit from the SSD, if thats even possible) any replies would be nice ^-^

My main (Warlock) just hit 525 Alchemy and transmuted my first Truegold.....within 5 mins it sold for 2200g.....with a 24hr CD I have a feeling this is going to be a GREAT investment. Mats cost me about 1500g (I'm too lazy to farm them) so a 700g profit is not bad at all.

Working on Archeology also is a pain but like you said its best done when waiting on instance queue's. I just hit 30 the other day and solved my first piece! The heroics are a joke right now. Our tank who had 160k health was getting smashed by trash mobs and stuff. Things have definitely changed and hopefully for the better.

Um, dont do any combines on Arcehology until your at least a minimum of 75 in skill, or even further, basically skillup on Surveying first as much as you can stomach because once you hit a certain point, you can skillup on surveying anymore you can only skillup on combines.

That's good advice Sarah...thx.  I was trying to work on that last night during random q's, but the q's did not last for more than a minute or so.  I am a tank, so I don't know if that helps, but the randoms were very fast yesterday.  I'll try and just survey tonight, and not run those hard asss dungeons.  I've got almost 140k now, and still takin a beatin in some of the runs.  But I'm really enjoying the new challenge, as well as all the new quests, that are full of suprises and great content.

Thats why your que is short, its always short for tanks and healers. DPS have a 45+ minute wait as far as que's go. I am about 50 now in archeology and I have found it faster to fly all over Kalimdor with my own mount then to use the Wyverns, thats pretty sad.

Its a slow process, I am collecting my artifacts and fossils and will not "solve" anything until I have pushed my skill as far as I can surveying. I have read reports of people going as far as 100 with it, however I don't know if I have the stomach to go that long without solving my finds.

The only thing that keeps me going with archeology is the hopes of a fossil mount.
