Tuesday maintenance and a minor patch inc.

Blizz released a minor patch today. No major changes, but a very annoying bug was squashed.   The "gear" tool tip bug is no more.  Glad to see it, I can't even keep track of how many disconnects I've witnessed so far, especially on the Headless Horseman.

So here's the patch notes, since they didn't show with the download:
  • Using a "/cast!<pet ability" command no longer disconnects players.
  • Mousing over objects that generate a cogwheel should no longer cause the client to freeze or disconnect.
  • Guild Tabards should no longer display on characters not actually wearing the Guild Tabard.
  • Floating combat text should always appear.
  • NPC Health Bars/Nameplates are now appearing correctly.

Blizzcon 2010 Cataclysm Login Screen Revealed

Kid breaks leg at Blizzcon 2010 Dance Contest

Sweet Murlock Hoodie from Jinx

Jinx has a great new Murlock hoodie at BlizzCon.  It's not on sale at the Jinx store just yet but probably will be soon.  I can't wait to get my hands on this bad boy so that I can chase my dog around screaming "Murglggllgl!" like an idiot.  Don't get me wrong, I do it already, but I just look stupid doing it without the appropriate outfit.

Kotaku has the full details.
