3.1 Changes

Looking over the latest patch notes there were a few changes that caught my eye. The first of which was bear swipe being 360 degrees and not requiring a target.

Not sure what other bears think about this, but I actually prefer it the way it is on live. Call me old fashioned, but I like to use crowd control once in a while. I am already a bull in a china shop with my maul hitting two targets so I've always had to be extra careful which way I am pointing around crowd controlled targets. Takes a pretty dense tank to want stuff behind them anyway so even if I can hit things back there I doubt there will be anything to hit 99% of the time. The not requiring a target is kind of nice though.

Another nice thing was the removal of fishing and cooking training books, now you just learn everything from a trainer. They also got rid of the nat pagle quest requirement as well as the clamette surprise one. Makes life on alts easier. Now if only they did the same for first aid, or maybe they have and didn't mention it.

And last but not least, when you or someone else loots a badge everyone else gets one. That will save me a lot of double checking and even better let me skin sooner without having to wait for those looting slackers.
