I had just gotten back into Ironforge from getting my brandy-new mechanostrider, and was reading all the normal patch day "OMG what's this? OMG what happened to that?" from the people who not only don't keep up on the upcoming patches, but don't read the notes as the patch is installing. Granted, there's always a few things that are changed but not mentioned in the notes, but it's always sort of fun watching people go crazy on stuff he rest of us have been yapping about on forums for weeks.
Anyway, I made an off the cuff remark just for the heck of it, saying that Night Elves were removed from the game just to see what happened, and I enjoyed the resulting zaniness.
Oh, and grats to all you new Mechanostrdier owners and new Tauren raptor, dead horse, and chocobo owners!
