WRUP: Our favorite 6.1 things edition
Patch 6.1 is getting ever nearer, and as we learn more about what the patch will bring we all have our favorite things about it. So this week when we caught up to talk about what we were playing this weekend, we also also took the time to talk about our favorite things in patch 6.1 (so far).

Are you playing WoW this weekend? Jump into the comments to tell us what you're up to -- and what you're looking forward to in patch 6.1. Otherwise, read on for what team WoW Insider is playing this weekend.

Adam Koebel (@BendakWoW) I'll probably spend a bit of time on the PTR this weekend, and of course more Dragon Age Inquisition. As for 6.1, I'm looking forward to a few things. First, the stage 4 crafting upgrades because I have the absolute worst luck with loot and I need them as a crutch. Weapon drops? What are those? Next, the jukebox is something I'm pretty excited about. I spend a lot of time in my garrison and it will be nice to change the tunes. I just hope they have an interesting (but not too grindy) way of acquiring the different tracks. I'll be going after the Storm Peaks music first! I also like all the new follower stuff, such as the reroll items you can purchase with garrison resources.

Alex Ziebart (@AlexZiebart) I'm in crunch mode to get my book published, so it's unlikely I'll be doing any gaming this weekend. It's been in finishing touches phase for way longer than necessary and I really want to get it out there already. Five year process is too long! I'm excited for the blood elf models because while I don't have any blood elf characters, I do have an Orb of the Sindorei. That means all of my characters are a little bit blood elf.

Anne Stickney (@Shadesogrey) I'm not sure what I'm going to be doing this weekend, but I think most of it is going to be spent away from the computer, save for writing of course. I just finished the first (second?) leg of the legendary chain and I have to wait until Blackrock Foundry comes out until I can begin work on the next part, so I'm looking forward to that -- although that doesn't really have anything to do with 6.1. I'm looking forward to seeing the various model tweaks and fixes go live, and checking out what the new blood elf models look like.

Dan O'Halloran (@danoh) Running Highmaul this week on my Druid and Monk healers to continue gathering the drops needed for the legendary ring quest. Also, and I know I say this every week, I'm going to try to finish the Nagrand quest line. I swear! As for 6.1, though the Scavenger nerf makes me sad, I'm happy to see we can buy follower retraining certificates for garrison resources. Having seven followers with Danger Zone and only two with Wild Aggression is very frustrating. I'm also looking forward to the new Legendary follower.

Elizabeth Harper (@faience) This weekend is focused on revising my resume and sending in job applications after losing some freelance work over the past week. Such is the glamorous life of someone who writes for a living! But I'll also probably be continuing my pet collection quest -- I'm slowly working my way towards the safari achievements. For patch 6.1, I'm looking forward to having heirlooms back in the game for more alt leveling... and I hope to see some heirlooms appropriate for holy paladins, since I've been wanting to level a new draenai.

Elizabeth Wachowski (@leeatwaterlives) I'd like to get my level 99 paladin up to 100, but I may be distracted by a sudden urge to play Skyrim.

Matthew Rossi (@MatthewWRossi) I'm going to be reading my new copy of Passport to Magonia (if you're curious) and thinking about what the UFO myth means, in a modern context. I'm excited for the new blood elf models.


The weekend is the perfect time to kick back, relax and enjoy some game time. Are you an achievement junkie? Can't get enough raiding? Rolling a new alt? Considering taking the leap into roleplaying? Whatever your favorite way to play World of Warcraft, let us know in the comments what you're playing this weekend!
