Gear Check: Razer Naga MMO Gaming Mouse + Megasoma Mousing Surface!
2009/10/19 at 2:02 AM
Greetings Wowhead denizens! You may remember a few months ago I got my hands on some sweet Razer gaming peripherals and was able to give them a go and
share my opinions
with the rest of you. Back then we were looking at the
Razer Lycosa Gaming Keyboard
Razer DeathAdder Gaming Mouse
, and the
Razer Destructor Precision Gaming Surface
. I enjoyed using all of the products, and still use the Lycosa and Destructor to this day - anyone who has caught me on Team Fortress 2 or in our #Wowhead IRC channel has probably heard my blathering on about how much I love my Lycosa. Razer's new additions are no exception to the quality and performance I have come to expect from their products. Their latest offerings include the
Razer Megasoma™ Professional Gaming Mouse Mat
, a sleek, hybrid silicon mousepad that combines the best of both worlds and (most importantly) Razer'
Hallow's End Achievements Bug
2009/10/18 at 10:27 PM
Just picked this up from the official forums. Watch out, all you achievement mavens!
We are currently experiencing an issue with the Hallow's End candy buckets that is affecting the Trick or Treat Achievements for this event. Certain candy buckets in Northrend, once looted, are preventing characters from looting some of the Candy Buckets required for the Trick or Treats of Eastern Kingdoms, Kalimdor and Outlands. The current way to work around this is to get the candy buckets from Eastern Kingdoms, Kalimdor, and Outland before doing any in Northrend.
Note, doing the Achievements first will prevent some of the Northrend Candy Buckets from being intractable.
We are actively working on a resolution for this and will provide more information when it is available.

Another PTR Build, Another Batch of Icons!
2009/10/17 at 12:50 AM
More icon-y goodness! PTR build 10596 has landed and we've snagged some sweet new icons that should (hopefully) soon be attached to some equally as sweet items! Today we've got what appear to be more tier armor icons, a new trinket icon, and an icon for what may be a new quality of enchanting shard!
new icons in the current PTR build!
[Spoilers] The Fate of the Lich King
2009/10/16 at 11:57 PM
Do not read this blog if you do not wish to learn about spoilers!
So apparently some kind people found out what happens to the Lich King at the end. Or almost. If you follow the YouTube link at the beginning of my (short) blog, you will see an animation of him as he appears at the end of the Icecrown Citadel. I won't reveal anything about the animation in this section, but you can check it out and read a little about it after the break.
And just a few things before we start the comment-off - just facts we know as official Lore. Arthas and Ner'zhul do not exist as separate people/spirits/souls. There is only the Lich King. The LK shares his two "creators" memories and a small number of their emotions and goals, but that's it. Do not think of him as "Arthas" or "Ner'zhul", because the differences are more than the similarities. And if you go back to the Warcraft 3: The Frozen Throne cinematic, where Arthas merges with Ner'zhul, you will notice that the "
Now we are one!
