Battle.net Facebook Integration
2010/05/05 at 12:26 PM
This morning Blizzard release a press release that is rather interesting. The new Battle.net, which will be released with the upcoming release of StarCraft II: Wings of Liberty, will feature
This is not especially surprising—clearly the functionality is intended to make it easy to connect and add friends through Facebook to your Battle.net friends list. According to the press release, this should be popping up on the beta test client in the near future.
April Features Update!
2010/05/04 at 7:55 PM
We had so much good stuff in April that we decided to do a
new features recap
a little early—but we've been hard at work since then as well, so I still wanted to do our normal monthly feature recap here. Come check out some of the stuff we've been working on!
We've added a "

You can now directly click where you want to go in the

have been working on this particular enhancement for a little while now, and one feature discussion stood out. As we join our heroes, alayton has just completed an especially confusing change request from TheOnyx:
alayton: I HOPE YOURE HAPPY THEONYX
TheOnyx: you can't tell me that this functionality isn't awesome for quests like this
TheOnyx: we're making this game Easy Mode
TheOnyx: one enhancement at a time
Miyari: you're gonna love my maps
alayton: im just kidding ;p
TheOnyx: you're gonna be in a great mood all day because you're gonna be grinding your troubles away with Wowhead
Miyari: stop having boring leveling, stop having a boring WoW
TheOnyx: you know you hate doing quests
TheOnyx: that's why you have no quests in your quest log
TheOnyx: watch this
TheOnyx: one page
TheOnyx: quest complete
Dalaran Children's Week Quests Issues
2010/05/04 at 4:54 PM
As you may already have noticed, if you have completed the Dalaran
quests that were released last year,
you currently cannot complete them again this year.
An update posted by Bornakk and further clarified by Bashiok states that at this time there is no plan to fix this issue with the quest in time for this Children's Week, and everyone who completed the quest last year will have to wait until the event rolls around again.
This is rather upsetting, I was hoping to complete the Dalaran collection by getting my
Curious Oracle Hatchling
We are aware of the issue that is currently affecting the Children’s Week quest line in Dalaran which does not allow players who have completed the quest line last year to take part in it again this year. We do not currently have a fix planned to address this issue at this point in time.
To clarify, this issue won'
An Informal Poll
2010/05/03 at 8:52 PM
So I have a few things that have been wondering lately, and I'd like to do a poll. I've noticed that a surprising number of our users seem to hang around the site even though they don't actually
WoW anymore. Are you one of those people?
I'd like to get answers to these questions. A simple "yes" or "no" is enough.
Do you have an active World of Warcraft account?
Do you use the Launcher?
Do you regularly visit the official World of Warcraft site?
Cataclysm Friends & Family Has Begun!

Yes you read that right! The Cataclysm

Yes, we can confirm that the Family & Friends phase of the testing process for World of Warcraft: Cataclysm has begun. The closed beta test phase has not yet started, but we will provide updated information when it does.

Screenshot of the Day Now Featuring Cataclysm
2010/04/29 at 7:47 PM
Blizzard have just posted via their Twitter feed at
to let everyone know that they will now be posting Cataclysm screenshots to the
Screenshot of the Day
feature on the
official World of Warcraft website
There's no word on how long they'll be teasing us with these great screenshots of what's in store, but I hope it's at least until the Cataclysm Beta begins and we can start taking some awesome screenshots of our own!
Starting today, our Screenshot of the Day section at worldofwarcraft.com will feature unique #WoW #Cataclysm images!
Today's screenshot features a Gilgoblin, perhaps found in the upcoming
dungeon of the
Sunken City of Vashj'ir
We'll make sure to include screenshots in our

The new Troll starting area will be for levels 1-5, and you will initially tasked with protecting the local raptors and their hatchlings from the sorcery of a nearby sea witch, slaying beasts that prey on our fellow tribe members and assaulting the naga who have overrun part of the isle.

Icecrown Citadel Raid Buff Increased to 15%
2010/04/27 at 12:22 PM
It's been a busy week in the World of Warcraft! With this latest raid reset, the
-specific raid-wide buff has had its effect increased again!
Strength of Wrynn
will now increase damage, healing, absorption effects and health by
You may remember that the buff was last increased to 10% at the end of last month, up from the 5% it provided when first launched at the beginning of March. Seems our
was correct, and this latest increase to the buff's effects was applied exactly four weeks later. I guess we can now assume we'll see the buff reach a staggering
on May 25th,
on June 22nd, and
on July 20th.
This buff should definitely help out players trying to down some of the more demanding hard modes in Icecrown Citadel. Personally, I don't think that a lot of Icecrown Citadel's encounters were scaled properly for their intended difficulty level to begin with (ie. 10-man modes being downed without 25-man gear), so hopefully this helps even out the playing ground a bit more. Remember, you still have
X-53 Touring Rocket Available Today
2010/04/27 at 10:55 AM
You may recall that Blizzard announced some changes to the Recruit-a-Friend
mount reward a little while ago. If you had an unclaimed Zhevra, the announcement said, or if you decided to recruit a friend in the near future, you would have the normal Zhevra reward changed to a spectacular
X-53 Touring Rocket
Well, the big day is today. As of today, April 27, 2010 (possibly after the maintenance), if you recruit a friend or if you have Zhevras waiting to be assigned to one of you characters, you will start getting the X-53's!
Here is the short post by Zarhym:
Time is running out for those who wish to claim their Zhevra, as the launch of the X-53 Touring Rocket is now scheduled for tomorrow, Tuesday, April 27! If you’ve fulfilled all of the Recruit-A-Friend requirements necessary to claim a mount now but choose not to claim the Zhevra, you will be able to claim the X-53 Touring Rocket instead once it launches. Sounds like they’re firing it up for a final test run now....
