Thanks! I also have plans for a micro version of your ring lift (I call it, micro ring lift ;P ;-P)
(Two different smilleys can't be 'racist' :P :-P)
Heard about your wing accident :P :-P

Also, my wing already healed :3

And, i only copied the ring lift off of Shadowmans in Cataclysm, and i am like 99.9999999999% sure i gave him credits :)

Do they grow out of your body? nope.
