Official 3.2 Thread!
04/08/2009 alle 08:31
That'll teach me to try going out to dinner on patch day! Blizzard has
that faction restrictions on PvP servers have been removed, apparently as part of their transition into offering a
service. The post is here:
So an interesting article on
indicates that faction restrictions on pvp servers are currently disabled, and users can now create characters of any faction on a pvp server, no matter what characters they already have. No word yet on whether this is intentional—it certainly isn't in the patch notes.
So here's the official thread, y'all! 3.2 is today!
Here then, is a centralized location—to discuss changes, express your irritation at the nerfs, or to rail at Blizzard for not being able to get their servers back u
Priest Q&A with Ghostcrawler
04/08/2009 alle 00:46
It looks like
right—I am not prepared! Who would have guessed Blizzard would release two Q&As in one day? ;)
One of my favorite parts of the interview is that Blizzard's considering removing the "backlash" from
if the target is within "
" range. The other part is that Blizzard wants to make Shadow talents that improve the overall damage of Shadow Priests, so that their damage is not penalized in cases where DoTs are useless. But enough chit-chat—let's get to the interview!
You can read the entire interview after the break, or read the original one linked below:
Rogue Q&A with Ghostcrawler
03/08/2009 alle 15:05
Much like the rogue class itself, Blizzard decided to be pretty sneaky and release the Rogue Q&A as one of the last class Q&As. Maybe they used some rouge to hide it? :D
For the most, I enjoyed reading the interview. I like that Blizzard admitted that a few aspects are in need of a fix, and that they defended a few decisions which negatively affected rogues. My favorite part of the interview was about
and its current functionality—but have a look for yourself! You can read the entire interview after the break, or read the original one linked below:

League of Legends Beta! (DotA Fans Rejoice!)
31/07/2009 alle 17:01
So I don't know how many of your are fans of Warcraft III—I can hope there's at least a small number of you, judging by the comments on my first
Warcraft III related blog
Well, anyone out there who played Warcraft III online is likely ALSO to remember
Defense of the Ancients
—there was a good long stretch where nobody I knew would play anything else. :)
Well, all of you DotA fans may be interested to learn that there's a game coming out shortly called
League of Legends
, which is a free to play game based on the DotA mod, and our sister site ZAM.com has got beta keys to give away. If you're a DotA fan from way back, go sign up for the beta giveaway
The full story and signups are at
All the keys have been given out!
Q&A Crusaders' Coliseum + Isle of Conquest
31/07/2009 alle 13:08
Looks like the class Q&A were popular enough to make Blizzard create non-class Q&A as well :) I don't know about you, but I feel better seeing that all those questions we ask on the forums are being read, and some of them - even answered. Publicly.
This time it's a combined Q&A about the
(the new 5-, 10-, and 25-man dungeons) and the
Isle of Conquest
(the new Battleground).
I myself didn't find a terrible lot of new information in this Q&A, but it helps to see all those thing put together by somebody from Blizzard. Follow the link to the WoW-Europe forums, or read on to find out what
has to tell us:
31/07/2009 alle 12:45
Archivist of Ulduar, Auriaya
unfortunately bears no resemblance to the
in Diablo III.
Actually, scratch that. Sonic Screech looks like
makes me think of Sentinel Blast, and
is kind of like Terrifying Screech. But
I have found myself with some time in my hands, and nothing in particular to do, so I thought I'd put another Strategist together. Hoping that somebody actually reads and uses these... ;)
Also, before I actually start writing, I will have you know that this boss is actually rather hard for my guild. I think we might be doing something wrong - it's not that the strategy doesn't work, it's just messy.
MMOs: Not Just For Kids!
30/07/2009 alle 18:36
So here I was, reading through the official forums, when I found a thread that looked interesting. I'll spare you the unnecessary details of the thread, but the person who wrote the thread claimed to have been eighty-eight-years-old when it was written back in April of this year. You read it correctly—an
year old, and I'm not even kidding.
That thread reminded me of an experience I had back while I was leveling my paladin during Burning Crusade. Intriguing? Read on!
28/07/2009 alle 17:53
Slow internet, sitting out of raids this week, poor weather for going out... Which means more Strategists this week!
A little known fact about
- Brann Bronzebeard wiped on him. So you better read carefully and not repeat the dwarven explorer's mistake. In addition to this, Kologarn is a mandatory boss, whom you need to kill in order to reach the Keepers' sanctums. And then Yogg-Saron. His dead body will become the bridge to the Observation Ring, and Ulduar's archivist - Auriaya. Body crafted personally by Ignis the Furnace Master, who hopefully lies dead by his forge by the time you get to Kologarn. You are quite a decimating group of raiders, aren't you? :)
Blizzard Responds to Extended Maintenance and Instance Problems
27/07/2009 alle 16:44
We all know the drill. Wake up late on Tuesday morning. Shower. Eat a bowl of Frosted Mini-Wheats. Go to work/school. And then whenever you get the time, log onto some site devoted to WoW and gripe about maintenance. And what's worse than maintenance? Extra-maintenance!
Well it looks like Blizzard has had a very good reason for it all—all that extended maintenance you've been experiencing is going to pay off! Basically, Blizzard has been looking into the problems that players have been experiencing with servers and instances and they are trying to fix these problems. The extended maintenance has been caused by this. Read the official Blizzard post
or check it out after the break!
Strategist: Assembly of Iron
26/07/2009 alle 17:50
Well, I did earn
The Siege of Ulduar
, did I not? Made an entry for each one of the Siege bosses, that I did. Made me wonder how adequate the term "siege" is, when the only Expedition forces are in the base camp and around Razorscale - looks we've been
Ulduar, not besieging it. But that's just my thoughts :)
So this time it's the
Assembly of Iron
. What many people call '
the Iron Council
'. The three Iron Generals represent each of the iron races in the Iron Army (they also love iron).
, the biggest and physically strongest of them all, is an Iron Giant with colossal strength.
is an Iron Vrykul, who has mastered the art of rune magic.
is an Iron Dwarf with a master's touch in the lightning magic, who hates being mocked for his height.
The Assembly of Iron has taken residence in the left wing of the Antechamber of Ulduar, j
Wowhead Weekly Review (July 19 - July 25)
25/07/2009 alle 17:00
First off, I'm back, posting my own Weekly Review after months! I cannot believe that the last one posted by me actually was the
fifth Weekly Review
which was too long ago!
Second off, I am entering the blogosphere with the twentieth (coincidence?) Wowhead Weekly Review (which is another milestone)! Hopefully you will enjoy it!

Strategist: XT-002 Deconstructor
24/07/2009 alle 18:22
Time to deconstruct another boss' strategy! Har har har!
I love silly jokes. They make me... silly. But it's true -
is the subject of today's Strategist. Similarly to the other Ulduar bosses, not a whole lot is known XT, other than the fact that he is the last boss in the Siege of Ulduar, he is a mandatory fight, and his voice is the single reason people wipe on him.
XT-002 is located in the Scrapyard, between the Formation Grounds and the Antechamber of Ulduar. He is another one of
's creations, whom XT considers to be his father. Hence the boyish voice, the diligent exercise and dutiful guard. You need to defeat XT in order to proceed further in Ulduar, even if you skip the optional Ignis and Razroscale. The Deconstructor also has a hard mode.
And now, skipping over the break, let's take a look at He-who-does-not-drop-my-

Hunter Q&A with Ghostcrawler
23/07/2009 alle 13:59
This Q&A was more adventurous than the others. Just as we spotted it, it was pulled off the official forums (and website, if it ever made it there).
still had it though, so we used their version - you can find the source over at their
. I personally expect changes to be made to the original Q&A (which is what you see here), hence the pulling off. Keep an eye on the thread, we'll try to post the updated version, if there is one, as soon as we can.
Looks like everything is alright with the Q&A now. You can find the source under the quote, after the break (through nine mountains in the tenth, through nine rivers...). The
in the quote was not there before - it's the only new thing.
This time it's Hunter. Remember how I was happy about the Druid one because my next alt would be a druid? Well, the alt I am currently leveling is a
! So I am naturally excited to see what they have to say about it, and about Marksman in particular. I still haven't r

Sam Raimi to Direct Warcraft Movie
22/07/2009 alle 01:56
So it looks like
was wrong, in his tongue-in-cheek prediction—it looks as though the Warcraft movie has a director—and it's
Here's the press release:
Especially interesting is the fact that
Ain't It Cool
picked up the story first, after which it was picked up by
, and only THEN did the
official press release
come out—and you may notice there's a typo in the title. Looks like the leak caught Blizzard a little off guard. ;)
o what do you guys think?
Good decision? Bad decision? Hopefully we'll have the chance to post an opinion piece on the subject this week.
Strategist: Ignis the Furnace Master
22/07/2009 alle 01:00
Hello, folks! My name is
not important. What is important is that I have finally put together an Ignis guide. Many of you probably have the old giant on farm, but for those who don't - and the future generations - here it is!
Ignis the Furnace Master
is fire giant, located in Ulduar. It is unknown whether he was there originally, or if he was brought by
(although I prefer the former), but one thing is certain - he works for
just as much as Loken did. He is the one who crafted Razorscale's metal armor, and the one who created Kologarn, literally from a chunk of stone. You can find him in his Colossal Forge, on the opposite side of Razorscale.
Not intended to make fun of Dorkins. I love the opening :)
Druid Q&A Follow-up
21/07/2009 alle 18:58
did raise points interesting enough for Bornakk to answer a few additional questions. I am not a very active druid player, but one of the things he said looks very interesting to me:
Please continue to
Any chance I am not going to see any "
"s here? :P
