Happy Tuesday morning, everyone. I came back from my vacation just in time to start the Lunar Festival, and let me tell you, I was looking forward to it quite a bit. I mean, sure, this means my druid can restock on Moonglow, but the main reason I was hopeful is that I have two characters stuck in the early 70s, and I was sort of hoping that rounding up all the elders would take care of a significant chunk of their leveling and get me out of Northrend that much earlier. Then I visited my first elder and found out that they give neither experience nor money anymore. You may have heard the howls of anguish.
So anyway, now I'm thinking I should just level them via archaeology, but doing archaeology a second or third time might actually be worse than doing Northrend a seventh or eighth time. Still, at least archaeology is apparently getting a lot more lucrative in patch 4.0.6. Speaking of patch 4.0.6, no, we do not know when it's coming to live servers. Seeing as maintenance this morning is only from 5 a.m. to 11 a.m. Pacific time, it's probably not that week. That said, we do have plenty of other patch 4.0.6 news for you to catch up while the servers are down. Read on for all the latest.
