"Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end." --Closing Time by Semisonic
Change. We saw it coming right at us all for a while now, and now the reality of it all is starting to sink in. Caterpillar, the IOOM guild master for as long as I have been here, made the decision to step down, and we have started adjusting to the change. People are returning to the game in anticipation of the next expansion, and it is good to see them again. Warlocks no longer have access to a glyph that makes them tanky. As many of you know, a real life change has affected my family and has left the rest of us trying to find the new normal as well.
With the release of patch 6.0.2 earlier this month, the game has changed right along with us. The item squish has occurred, some spells have been pruned, some talents have been changed, storage options have been added (toy box!), and so much more. We are getting the hang of things, and I think it is safe to say that we are having some fun doing it.
That being said, though, some things around IOOM are not going to change. IOOM will continue to be a family-friendly, safe place for new, young, and old players alike to hang out and play the game the way we want to play it. Caterpillar will continue to hang around, trying to find creative ways to heal and/or kill us all with Holy Nova. We will continue to figure out all of these changes together, so let's hunt down the Headless Horseman or run the newer version of UBRS together in this prelude to the Warlords of Draenor expansion. Most importantly, we will continue to be the online family that brought us all here to IOOM in the first place.
