What I did was I got a summon to Stonecores summoning stone, and then quested in Deepholm. No you dont miss any big chains either. I completed the whole thing this way. Also, to leave the Maelstrom, you can use the unstuck feature and right when the cast is about to end, use your hearthstone. Or you can queue up for Wintergrasp or Tol Barad.

Wants the API documentation changes NAAAOW.

Global Functions (API)

We can create a list of all the global function on our own:

http://www.wowwiki.com/User:Mikk/Scripts

Adding sense to the different functions is another story.

I'm not seeing any patch. The servers are down, but nothing is coming through the launcher. Where'd you see it?

Yep, it's downloading now. 12 megs or so of new launcher, then 1.2 gigs of patch. However, you can play after about 20 megs of patch. I like this new(-ish) download system.

EDIT: rather, you could play after 20 megs, but the servers are still down.

* The global variables this, event and arg1[b], [b]arg2... have been removed. Event handlers and other callbacks must use the appropriate locals. If you have lua installed locally, the command luac -l -p somefile.lua can be useful to search for the GETGLOBAL instruction to find places where code is referencing a global instance of these variables.
It's finally happened, hallelujah

Do not know if want.


I just recently got into addons, and now it seems I'll likely have to relearn how to do a few things. >.<

Yeah, I have to sorta agree. The removal of 'this' is giving me a bit of a headache.

Don't feel bad; it's causing a few issues across all my projects, as well as a few others I'm sure. The problem is that these things were supposed to have been removed a LONG time ago, but their old API still depended on them. Pre-Cata dropdowns were littered with "this" still in it and has become a major thorn in my side with this change.

So now poeple are still used to these being actively used after their supposed "disappearance" and are watching their addons blow up with no documentation (that I've found anyways) listing the "correct" format examples to replace their ancient "this" references. This is very confusing/frustrating for new and old coders alike. Old dogs and new tricks....
