Experience Reduced for Dungeon Quests
2010/11/30 at 4:19 PM
Looks like Zarhym just jumped on to post that
Experience for 1-60 dungeon quests is being significantly reduced.
We are applying a hotfix today to all level 1-60 dungeon quests for Kalimdor and Eastern Kingdoms dungeons which will significantly reduce the amount of experience they award.
While dungeons should remain integral to our evolving storylines, and great places to collect gear in cooperative environments, we need to make sure each player’s questing progress remains relevant as dungeon quests are completed. In many cases we’re seeing players enter dungeons to complete quests, only to come out ahead of the leveling curve for the zones they’re in.
This change should allow players the opportunity to reap the benefits of running dungeons, while not outpacing the leveling flow from levels 1-60. At this time there are no plans for making any adjustments to dungeon quest experience for Outland, Northrend, and level 80+ Cataclysm dungeons.
You can find a list of all of the latest hotfixes here:
I don't know about you guys, but I'm really happy about this. I love

Hotfixes and Mysterious Patch Download
2010/11/29 at 8:43 PM
We mentioned this on
, but I figured it'd be good to get this posted here as well: The Blizzard folks have released another round of hotfixes onto official servers, and a brand new patch download.
This download is not a new patch.
It's actually a re-push of Blizzard's
patch, because some people got an incomplete download the last round.
It's not a new patch, it's actually "re-downloading" data which will replace current files. It's intended to resolve a few issues including disconnects and 'pink squares'.
As it's not a patch, if you're extremely eager to get into the game (or it's taking too long) you can actually bypass the launcher and run the wow.exe in your game directory and play normally. You can then continue on downloading it later after you're done playing.
We've also had a bunch of new hotfixes deployed on live servers, as listed by Zarhym below. Check after the break to see them:
Reminder: WoW 6th Anniversary Begins Tonight
2010/11/29 at 5:58 PM
Just as a quick reminder—even though WoW's 6th anniversary was technically on November 23rd, the anniversary Feat of Strength goes into effect on
If you're on an EU server, you can already get the
WoW's 6th Anniversary
achievement just by logging in right now. US servers will have to wait until midnight before the achievements go live on their servers.
If our sources are correct, you should have until
to log on and get your achievement! Now that shouldn't be a problem for any of you, should it?
New Utility: DB Pages Without Screenshots
2010/11/25 at 3:03 AM
Considering how much new stuff has been added in this latest patch event, we thought it might be a good time to roll out this little bonus feature!
If you look under
Tools > Utilities
, you'll find a new button labeled
. This will show you all the items, spells, NPCs, and so on in our database that don't have screenshots yet, so
can be the first to submit one!
Now's the time—explore that brave new redesigned world, and post your findings!
Personalized Search Update: Now Works On All Completion Data
2010/11/24 at 10:19 PM
Remember when we posted yesterday to let you know about our new
Personalized Quest Searches
Well we've published a little tweak to update it—you can now filter
any search you have completion data for, based on whether or not you've completed it!
That means you can sort out any of the following categories based on whether or not you've completed them:
(so you can sort by which ones you have at Exalted and which ones you don't)
There's a lot of potential here, and I'm really eager to see how you guys use it. Let us know!
New Feature: Personalized Searches
2010/11/23 at 2:39 PM
You guys are going to love this:
you can now display search results based on whether or not your character has completed them!
Here's how it's done:
Upload character data using the
This won't work unless you have quest data uploaded for the character you want to use!
Go to the character you want to use as your main.
Once your data is upload, the character should appear on your

as an example.
Click the button.
Now go browse through a category we show completion data for—
are one good example.
There should be a new section at the bottom of the filters, labelled
Now, just click "Available" or "Unavailable" to only show quests that are available (or unavailable) to your pinned character!
The real power of this comes when you view a list of quests for a zone, then you filter for ones that are 'available' and for your faction. This will give y

Elemental Boss Portals Open Until Further Notice
2010/11/22 at 9:46 PM
Bashiok just announced an "Elemental Portal Fire Sale" on the official forums:
All four elemental portals are open until further notice.
Elemental Invasion Guide
If you're looking to grab some last minute gear from
Crown Princess Theradras
Grand Ambassador Flamelash
, now's the time to do it!
Due to your valiant efforts in protecting the key invasion cities, the four boss portals are now 'permanently' open. If you need anything from inside the portals, or maybe you dropped your keys in there, now is the time to go through and get them.
Initial reports from shaman in the area that were available at time of publishing suggest that this is hinting at something far more sinister. One such shaman, a one 'Krunkmaster' from Proudmoore was quoted as saying "This is hinting at something far more sinister."
You'll want to stay tuned to the World of Warcraft community site for the latest developments on this and other events.
