Patch 5.0.4 hit last night, and as usual, there were some complications. No matter what I did, I couldn’t connect to the tracker to download the patch (which I thought we had already downloaded). Eventually I gave up trying to fix it when I realized that Mooglegem’s computer was updating just fine. She didn’t have room to optimize, so we moved her copy of TOR to an external drive, giving her 6 GB free on that drive. After optimizing, she had 30 GB free. This morning I copied her WoW copy to an external drive, and by before I left I began copying it to my computer.
I also logged in on each of my characters to unify the achievements. The screenshot above is of my very first character, a Night Elf warrior, looking at his achievements. In particular, I’m happy about the honorable kills achievements! I can now PVP on any character and still make progress on that achievement! I’m really looking forward to PVPing on alternate characters.
Congrats on the soon to be 100000th honorable kill!
The achievement sharing is nice, but for me this is the patch that lets me ride my rare mounts on any character I want (I don’t have to go through the terrible SK-hall grind to get that beautiful mount on my druid alt!)
That’s definitely true! If you look in my screenshot, you’ll see I’m standing near Jaina. I had logged in recently just to go see her in Theramore since I never had. My girlfriend pointed out that I could mount since I was above level 20, but she didn’t realize that I hadn’t played this character since early Vanilla so actually only had 1 gold.
Now that character has mount access :)
Everything about the account-wide changes has been positive to me. I’m very excited. For me personally, because I’m so very close to the 100,000 HKs it means I can now learn to PVP on alts. I’ve always avoided that because I wanted to keep adding towards my goal. I can’t wait to get home and play!
