The Curse client does a lot of things right…but it does NOT handle version control very well.

Say you don’t run it for a week or so (don’t have an always-on internet connection or something)…you start it up, and get this:



A week! A WEEK!

Grr. Okay, let’s “go there now.” Click Yes.

What’s this?

A 403 forbidden page. Classy.

Oh, and did I mention that trying to just reinstall it gives you an obscure error and directs you to a forum where they tell you your .NET is corrupted, which is totally wrong? A simple program uninstall and reinstall fixes things, but geeze.

(Sorry for the off-topic post, just ranting. When you get 2gig a week of BW as a cap, you get mindful of crap like this.)

On-topic…I got to DPS for our second Baleroc kill (real last-minute, hey, can you do X so we can do Y, etc.). All I had was my hybrid bear/cat spec from soloing SSC. (1/3 Fury Swipes, no BiTW, no FA, etc.) Reglyphed real quick, loaded Ovale, and boom. 23k. I know, not anything special, but after playing resto for a while, it’s good to see that I remember what I”m doing. :) Oh, all JP/MF/359 gear except for a Ranseur’s, since they’re dropping like candy in our runs. (Now if only the healer staff would drop…)

  1. Careful when using this client, since it does bypass any software firewalls you have and can make you more vulnerable to being hacked. More of a pain, but it’s much safer to install them manually
