So, last night I log in and boot up the PTR for the first time.
Woo! My main and a fully decked out premade are there waiting for me. And the gear on the pre-made made me drool. (Although, my main has a better PvP set.) Gem, enchant, fly around a bit was all I was able to do, but today I’m on the case to make the PTR, playable.
See, I didn’t think of the fact that, well, I had no addons, all my macros were gone, etc. Basically the PTR is a clean copy of the game and while the game is technically playable that way, I miss my stuff, especially my zoom out macro, I forgot how close to your toon the base game keeps the camera.
I may take advantage of the PTR to overhaul my UI. I attempted to do so once upon a time and well, it didn’t go so well. It ended up choking my computer heavily and my numbers dropped like a rock due to the extreme lag. This time, I’m going to try and see what I can mod, while hopefully keeping the changes as low impact on my memory footprint as possible, because it’s honestly time for a change. I feel cluttered and could use some more macros.
And this time I also have the advantage of Addon Control Panel, hopefully that will help as I play with things.
