Not too terribly long ago, Blizzard sent me an invitation to come check out the Panderia expansion for 10 days for free.
Now, checking out the pandas, themselves, is not something I need to do because, well, I have already done it. I made a free-to-play-to-level-20 account and created a Pandaran Priest, just to see the starting lands. It didn't take 20 levels before the character was merged completely with the Alliance or the Horde (did both, so I could see what happened) and therefore ripe for deletion.
So if the only attraction was the pandas, there really wasn't any attraction.
But with all the people who come to this blog for information on the Vuhdo addon (yes, I keep up with the statistics on this blog), I really felt tempted to accept this invitation, install the latest Vuhdo version, log in, see what major changes have happened, and see if I need to update anything on my little guide.
After a lot of thought, I decided to do it. So this week, I'll be waking up Anachan for the first time in over 14 months, ready to see what has happened to Vuhdo in my absence.
If I'm lucky, not much will have changed, and I'll be able to just
tweak things here and there in my guide. If I'm not so lucky, the interface will look completely different, and I'll be spending hours staring at my screen,
trying to figure out what is going on.
As Anachan has never been removed from Tempest guild, I'm mildly curious to
see what will happen (if anything) when I log on . . . Given the
turnover typical of most raiding guilds, I know there are really only a
few people remaining who remember me, so I don't expect much.
