I apologize for not posting sooner.
I've been... ill.
There was a terrible accident. My spleen, whom I thought inured to almost any toxin, decided to rip itself out of my abdomen and flee for the hills.
Well, flee for somewhere. I have to admit I'm worried, itsa bad neigborhood, it doesnt have any money, and doesnt really know anyone around here.
I tried tracking him by the trail of blood, but was a bit too dizzy. I got to the corner hot dog stand and no further.
Mmmm... hot dog bodegas...
Anyway, 3.1 is here. And you will be as surprised to learn as I was that Melvin had been keeping up with the 3.1 news! The most important thing in 3.1 for him? Titansteel spellblades! His lock and mage finally get an upgrade! (Melvin doan know about the flame heart scalpel... and wouldn't really be able to grind Kirin Tor rep either way since he doan get invited twice to heroics...)
Also of interest to Melvin... them changing frostweave bags to 24 slots!
(don't ask... I mean... I didn't. Even tho Melvin confessed to having read articles "nonstop" regarding the upcoming patch.)
So, I was quietly discussing the changes with Melvin on tuesday.
"No, Melvin, the bags aren't gonna suddenly get more slots!"
"How do you know?"
"I read the patch notes."
"How do you know those aren't fake?"
"THEY'RE ON THE BLIZZARD SITE."
"But I read..."
Anyway. Melvin then asked me what the big deal in the patch was gonna be. I told him about the hunter ammo bag changes... thunder stomp fer all tenacity pets... shammies becoming the only healing class without insane mana problems... and mages getting both jack AND shit.
Oh yeah, and the whole dual spec thing.
"You mean my mage and lock will be able to use two titansteel spellblades? I'm gonna need more titansteel!"
I wasn't really able to correct him. I felt a brief sharp pain right next to my liver, and we spent the next hour looking for missing body parts.
Which, I have to admit, has long been my ideal way to end conversations with Melvin. Just... I never thought it would be MY body parts we were looking for.
