Patch 3.3 On PTR! (Quel'Delar... Speculations?)
01/10/2009 alle 22:29
Hey, so 3.3 PTR came down on us like a sword falling on an iceberg. From the sky. Anybody else really excited about going there and kicking some butt (we'd chew gum too, but we seem to be out of gum...) with Sylvanas and Jaina? 'Cause I sure am!
Anyway, hopefully you are wondering where the stupid metaphor came from. 'Twas all intentional. A little while ago, back in the 3.1 days, when the Argent Tournament first came to existence, something starting drilling in the Lore freaks' heads. Right next to Sindragosa's Fall (where we saw the Lich King raising the biggest frost wyrm of them all in the WotLK cinematic), there was a sword. Sword stuck in the ice, surrounded by some stones, and apparently called Quel'Delar. Related to Quel'Serrar? Or maybe some sort of Excalibur reference? We knew nothing about it, until a few minutes ago when MMO-Champion dug some information from the PTR files. It's only spells, but they seem rather interesting by themselves too...
P.S. Stay tuned, more stuff might appear!

are up for Patch 3.3 on the PTR!
Blizzard is releasing these a lot faster than we're used to. The patch notes have some interesting info in them, particularly about some changes to the early leveling game. Other than that, these are pretty bare so far.

My Throat! It Burns!
01/10/2009 alle 05:47
It's flu/cough/cold season again and I've been running a fever, had a sore throat, and hacking my lungs out since Sunday, so I've been confined to my house so that I can rest. It's strange, but whenever I'm feeling fine, I always wish that I could go home and relax, maybe level up an alt, pig out on some junk food, etc. Yet when I am actually
to be home, I wish that I wasn't sick so I could get out of the house and
something! But I can't, so I wander around the house listlessly, looking for something to do.
I don't feel very hungry, so no gobbling down my sweets; I can't read a book, 'cause my head hurts so much it's hard to concentrate on the words; I can't play any video games on my computer, because staring at the screen (which is pretty close to my face) hurts my eyes after a while; so I usually just go upstairs, lay down on the couch and watch old movies that I've seen a kajabillion times before.
So I'm pretty bored out of my skull. But that got me thinking: What do you guys do when you are sick and confined to home? Do you play video games? Watch movies? Read bo

Looks like Brewfest has been extended by two days. Be sure and get your achievements in, and check out our
if you need help!
Brewfest is a time of year where the focus is placed squarely on the celebration of fun and food. In order to give everyone enough time to truly experience this event (and after some fine tuning on the part of the event organizers), we will be extending the event two additional days. The festivities will end on October 5th at 11:59PM, so don't miss it!

Icecrown Details Revealed!
30/09/2009 alle 12:38
Some of you may have noticed, but after launching a brand new EU site, Blizzard decided to pop another surprise at us - in the "Under Dev" section there, about the Icecrown Citadel. Back during BlizzCon, we were told that Icecrown will be composed of two major parts - a huge 5-man dungeon, and a 10/25-man raid. Well, here is the information about the 5-man instance part of it...
: The information below does not mean, nor imply that the Icecrown Citadel is going to be a 5-man dungeon. It doesn't mean that the Lich King is going to be a 5-man boss either. There is a separate raid, information for which has not been released after BlizzCon.
We may end up fighting some form of the Lich King in the 5-man however - a memory, a vision, an illusion...

A Bit of Nostalgia - Who Got You Playing WoW?
26/09/2009 alle 13:03
Time for a bit of
to feed your addiction. As if it's possible to play World of Warcraft or visit Wowhead without becoming an addict.
Who got you into WoW?
I remember my best e-friend named Shawn. We came from
Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided
, also heavy
players in intermediate gaming leagues (2v2 and 5v5). He introduced me to WOW when he got in the beta. I checked the website and said, "That thing looks corny, and I don't think it's exciting at all. The story sounds good, but..." Oh, how little did I know. I was addicted as soon as

Strategist: Trial of the Grand Crusader
25/09/2009 alle 18:31
So this is the last one of the Trial of the Crusader Strategists. Really. This time.
I am going to use this introductory paragraph to explain why the Grand Crusader is different - in general - and then dive into the specific details of each fight.
First, you start Trial of the Grand Crusader with 50 "unsuccessful attempts". Every time you wipe - or every time a boss resets, you lose 1 attempt. When you lose all 50, all bosses despawn and you can't do anything until the next reset. There are two reward systems, to promote better performance. The items that drop off bosses of higher level than the normal version of the raid - they are essentially the same items, with buffed stats. And then there is the Tribute Chest. As I understand it, the Tribute Chest will always contain 2 Trophies/Regalias (for 10/25 respectively) and a number of items. If you reach it with 25-44 attempts left, you get an extra Trophy/Regalia and an extra item. For 45-49 attempts left, you gain another one. And for a perfect run (50 attempts left), you get one unique mount and a very high level cloak.
Now that you are all familiar with the basic idea behind the Heroic raid mode, let's

With patch 3.2.2 being released, I'm sure you're all excited about some of the new stuff that is being introduced. I, for one, am looking forward to being told by several thousand people that I stole my name from an

Bitter? No, not at all.
Not after I kill the wench...
So yeah, pretty pictures! We found
new icons in this patch, most of which seem to be related to non-combat pets. Check them out!
Patch 3.2.2 - WoW's 5th Anniversary, Onyxia and More!
22/09/2009 alle 12:02
World of Warcraft is celebrating its
starting this month! Five years of leveling, questing, partying, pvping, raiding, farming - what a long, strange trip it's been, indeed! Some of you may remember logging in last year and finding an adorable new
Cucciolo d'Orso della Blizzard
waiting for you in your mailbox. This year, you're in for another treat! Log in this year during the 5th Anniversary celebration and you will receive an Onyxian Whelpling, an adorable little dragon whelp in the likeness of the brood mother herself,
! And speaking of Onyxia...
5 Years of WoW
22/09/2009 alle 12:01
Just as the new Onyxia encounter has reminded us, WoW has now been with us for five years. :)
I was preparing the posts and patch information for 3.2.2, and I couldn't help but wax melancholy (as I am wont to do) about my time in WoW. Five years makes for a lot of memories. It's not unusual to get
after a five year relationship—and yet here we are spending all of that time with a video game.
I even took some time to go back and look through how the World of Warcraft Official Site looked back in the day—does
look familiar to anyone? Dwarf mages, old fashioned troll and human models.../sigh. Those were the days.
So in honor of WoW's 5th anniversary, I've been asking the staff about their oldest and fondest memories of WoW. I've included a number of them here, after the break. Come and see!
Strategist: Onyxia 3.2.2
22/09/2009 alle 11:43
Why, hello there! You take your eyes away from the game for a little while and there it is - 5 years pass by. As
would say: "
5 years, you say? Well, you're certainly the bearer of wonderful news, aren't you? Next you're going to tell me that Onyxia is still alive and attacking the city.
" Well, what do you know - old Elling has a big surprise brewing up for him.
is in fact alive (kind of, but we don't mind) and back, ready to wreck raids once more!
And as you very well know, every time a new raid boss pops up, a new Strategist is spawned as well. Buckle up, break the piggy-bank with money for extra repair bills, stock up with flasks, and get ready for even MOAR DOTZ!
The Things We Do...
20/09/2009 alle 15:41
It has been almost one year (probably a bit more, right) since the achievements system was introduced to the game. And with the achievements system - one very particular achievement.
. Now that Brewfest is back around the corner, many of us are finally getting our chance to finish the trip and be rightfully awarded with a beautiful
(that flies at 310% speed, but we want it for the beauty, of course). But how many of you stopped while doing all those achievements, and thought "
Man, what I am doing is a complete absurd! I have morals, I should not be doing this for some drake!
" Yea, I didn't either...
But now that we are almost done with our lovely trip, I thought I would put a list of all the weird things we've done over the last year, trying to get the Violet Proto-drake. Read on, and enjoy the (long, strange) trip!

I know this has nothing to do with anything. But I just wanted to point this out, because I think this is my new favorite comment on the entire site.
The comment is from the
Redini del Cavallo da Guerra Ardente
, the epic land mount that drops from
Attumen the Huntsman
in Karazhan. Posted by
