3.2 was released yesterday and here is the summary that I promised to write up which is a followup to my original 3.2 post which I’ve now dubbed 3.2 Kitties – What you need to know – Preview. This post is a complete summary of things that affect kitties in 3.2. This is clearly not a complete summary of all 3.2 changes, for a full summary visit MMO-Champion.com. For those wondering how my Algalon progress is going it’s been on a bit of a standstill *sadface*. Summer has hit everyone hard and it’s been challenging to get a group each week to work on it (even though it’s only one hour). W’e've only had two hours of work in there so hopefully we’ll get some more time in soon. In the interim, except some 3.2 killshots shortly and best of luck to everyone in the Colliseum!
Cat/Bear Form Preview Compliation – I found this over at Secret Agent Cat (hope you don’t mind me linking!)

Profession Changes - All professions have been given a revamp (summary on MMO-Champion.com), the most significant being Engineering. Generally speaking while all professions have been updated, the improvements are aligned across each profession so that the effect is minimal. One significant change is that JC only gems are now colour specific and do not count towards your meta bonus unless the requirement is met.
Epic Gems – These can be obtained through multiple methods:
- Prospecting Titanium Ore
- Alchemy Transmute (2o hr cooldown)
- 10/20 Emblem of Heroism per gem
- 10,000 Honor Points per gem
Call of the Crusader Loot Tables
- Emblem of Triumph Loot Table
- Trial of the Champion (5 Man Dungeon) Loot Table

Tier 9 Sets
- There are 3 levels of T9 available, ilvl 232 (10 Easy), ilvl 245 (10 Hard + 25 Easy) and ilvl 258 (25 Hard)
- Alliance and Horde have two seperate unique looks
- The Alliance set is called Malfurion’s Battlegear of Conquest / Triumph / Trimuph(Heroic)
- The Horde set is called Runetotem’s Battlegear of Conquest / Triumph / Triumph(Heroic)
