The end-of-school summer drag has been bleeding off all the 25mans on our server. We've got 10s running, but it's rarely progression stuff in our guild.
We have a couple more hunter mains gearing up, which is nice. I'm hoping for some more energy to be pumped in with the release of Firelands.
And an old (slightly younger) friend of mine passed a couple weeks ago. It's put some things in perspective for me. I haven't hung up my gun or sworn off WoW. But the lack of gun drops in Firelands isn't helping..
The addition of new hunter pet "taming challenges" is very interesting from the standpoint of Blizz doing something special for hunters. Of course you have to "look a gift horse in the mouth" and see that the rewards aren't special.
