WotLK: Factions to Grind
Patch Day Respecs

Packrats of the World of Warcraft Rejoice!

My druid's bank is full. It's always been full. There are her 35 vanity pets, the miscellaneous quest items...the full sets of Tier 1 and Tier 2 gear she can't bear to part with, the boomkin set she totes around with her...

I've gotten a lot of grief from guildies and friends over my packrattyness. "You're never going to want to wear any of that again", they say. "That crap is taking up all your bank slots", etc.  But truth be told, I didn't just keep the clothes around to play dress up -- I also kept them as mementos from my early days raiding. I mean, after all the bad luck I had pursuing [Will of Arlokk], I just can't shard it now can I?

As it turns out, Blizzard is rewarding packrats like me in two ways when the patch lands today:

  1. My plentiful mounts and vanity pets will become spells, freeing up 2 bags
  2. All the "crap" in my bank that dropped off final raid bosses will be proof of my killing them for their associated achievements

Unfortunately, I didn't save much that dropped for my main in heroic dungeons-- she usually had better gear from raiding than anything that could drop for her in them. I have a feeling though that after the patch we will see some renewed interest in heroics, for the achievement factor.

Today's post-work WoW agenda: Level inscription. Learn all mounts/vanity pets as spells. Reorganize contents of newly thinned-out banks. Retrain everyone.
