Server Downtime 2/8/2011

Patch 4.0.6 is going live today, which we creatively call, “Patch Day”.  Those players who have been around while (which is many of us) know the 11am PST estimate for servers being back online is pretty generous.

Now, I’m hoping as much as you that deployment of the patch to live servers goes flawlessly and on time, but history tells me that patience is the name of the game on Patch Days.

I’ll try and keep the status of the servers updated here so long as they are down.  Hopefully, this will be the last time you see me edit this post!

Current Khor Time: 0745am PST
Estimated Server Go-Live: 0907am PST – Servers LIVE!

Edit 0907am EST – Im happy to say Blizz made me eat my words! For now, 4.0.6 is up and running almost 2 hours before they were supposed to be up.

    Since we have downtime can you update the best pre raid gear list to include mastery?

  2. Khor says:

    @ Onyx – I actually have the lists already done. I like to check my work, though, and I’m going to check my stat weights versus Exemplar’s and Redcape’s (Elitist Jerks) before I re-post the lists. I could have them up as early as this afternoon.

    Now that it’s up, how’s ret looking?

  4. Puckett says:

    @ Scott, dang man, that’s a loaded and opinionated question. If I was to answer you, I would say I love RET and played very very well with it before the Patch. Since the Patch in my opinion is an overall BUFF, then I would assume my RET experience post patch is gonna be just frosting on the cake.

    But that’s my opinion. I really really really enjoy RET, I only quest, for leveling and rep rewards, and then primarily do PVP constantly, Arenas and BGs. And I hold my own very very well and sometimes feel almost God-Like at times. But that could be cuz of the Horde I am facing at the time.

    But many other RETs would disagree with me, but that’s okay, it’s not for everyone and personally I love what Blizz has done to my favorite Class/Spec. As long as you enjoy it and have fun with it, then that’s all that matters.

    Great news. Thanks Khor. Very interested in your patch updates as soon as you have time to analyze changes. As always, I come here first for Ret & Holy Pally info. Super site.

    i agree i played this morning, putting on my mastery set, not even hit or expert capped, on dummy b4 patch i remember holding just over 10k with out cd’s and such, after patch now im holding over 14-15k on dummy with out cds , cant wait to get a proper meta and all that stuff and raid to see what i can do now. im happy with what has happened i think its alot bigger buff then ppl where thinking, its hardly a 5% increase, seems alot more and will scale with better gear im sitting around 17-18 mastery atm
