    Software houses sometimes reserve even numbers for internal builds/testing/experimental branches and odd for published branches or mainline or vice versa. Not clue about Blizzards internal development tho. It's entirely possible they do it that way because they hate even numbers more than odder ones.

    What irritates me is how many people in my shop insist that in versioning, 1.0.2 comes AFTER 1.0.19, for example.

    Well, I had a really weird and frustrating bug happen to me when I was questing with my lowbie mage. I decided I wanted to level before I flew to Exodar for a quest so I went about killing stuff in the area, and wander a little ways away from Blood Watch.

    So then, I decide to go back, so I look at map to see where I am relative to Blood Watch---according to my map I'm NW of Blood Watch, so I try to head SE in order to get there. But when I get near what should be the "edge" of BW, I run into a big body of water----I don't remember running across a body of water so I dive in anyways. Soon enough my area gets changed to "The Veiled Sea" and I'm puzzled by this, but I keep on wandering around trying to figure out where I'm going wrong.

    Finally, I decide to logout just beside the big body of water, turn off all my addons, and log back in. When I get back in, my map shows me at the far edge of the map, far SE of where it was showing me before the relog. I then find BW easily.

    I think heirlooms have spoiled me. I'm finding leveling at a low level without them far harder than I thought I would.

    I mean, it's ultimately not *that* difficult or anything, but the dropoff without heirlooms is tremendous.

    The biggest thing is the weapon, because it boost your damage a ridiculous amount if it's enchanted. It practically doubles your damage. And having tons of mana for a caster is awesome.

    Yeah it really is all about the weapon. There's little, if anything, that you'll ever find from 1-80 that will be as high damage, or stats, as the heirloom weapons, unless you get it way early. Even crap like the weapon rewards from the "arena" quests in Nagrand and Zul'drak, are weaker by a good bit, than the heirlooms, by the time you're high enough level to accept the quests.

    The shoulders/chest are nice for the bonus XP, and the trinkets are nice for low levels till you start getting trinkets that aren't total shit from quest rewards in Outland/Northrend; but neither make a huge difference, compared to the weapon for speed of leveling.

    Also, rest XP makes leveling an alt a night and day experience. I can hardly level a character anymore unless they have full rest. I will shelf them for a week at a time to get it too.

    I actually prefer sometimes to only use the weapon and trinkets for an alt; there's a certain joy in getting new gear for the while leveling. And especially seeing new shoulders once in a while, because there's some cool ones in the game.

    My real issue (and understand that this is at an extremely low level) has been that a couple adds means pretty certain death due to the longish cooldown on Frost Nova before you have other escape options like Polymorph or Blink.

    Not that it's a big deal considering these levels aren't going to last any time at all, but still....

    Update on the FUTUUUUUURE.

    So now we're getting 4.0.3, which is likely going to sync us up closer with beta and have all the new zone data. But, 4.0.3a is when the ACTUAL shattering occurs. I don't know which patch race combos and the like are attached to.

    Oh, and now the flying license is linked to launch for some arbitrary reason. Don't be shocked if we get dicked on new race combos in a similar fashion.

    Might as well mention this again, since I got it in right at the end of the last thread...

    But dunno how many beta players we've got, we should try to get together on the same server and take a swing at Blackwing Descent or something.

    I was suggesting Alliance on Gilneas. (Mostly since that's where my stuff is, and I've got officership on a level 25 guild on my paladin.)

    If we want to jump in the /pennyarcade channel, I could watch and hit people with invites.
