News Round Up: Mogu'Shan Vaults Raid Testing, Rocket Mounts, Ghostcrawler Class Feedback
2012/06/24 at 10:46 AM
Today's news round up has a ton of class feedback by Ghostcrawler, as well as a preview of Mists of Pandaria's first raid open for testing and some new mounts!
New Rocket Mounts
The two mounts we featured in our
Geosynchronous World Spinner
--are now automatically learned by all players in the most recent beta patch. Enjoy the ride while you can before you'll need an Engineer to craft them:
The Stone Guard encounter in
was open for testing at 10:30 and 16:30 PDT, on 10-player mode. The official feedback thread is

Mists of Pandaria: New Cosmetic Glyphs
2012/06/21 at 2:03 PM
Many cosmetic glyphs have been added recently to beta, especially for Monks and Priests! We've taken screenshots of them all for you. Be sure to check out our
more spell animations
One particularly fun minor glyph is
, which can be cast on any friendly target and rewards you with whispers like "I go into dungeons not to make Azeroth a better place, but just for loot." and "I have "borrowed" things from my guild bank." Other minor vanity glyphs include mages getting pets to match their specs, hunters shooting fireworks, and shaman turning into spectral wolves.

News Round Up: Purchasable Raid Epics on the Black Market Auction House
2012/06/19 at 6:28 PM

Since some wealthy players pay guilds for mounts/titles already, some players think this isn't a big deal, but others think it changes the character of the game. One of these heroic items is up for sale currently, so we added a screenshot on beta:
In other news, Ghostcrawler recently addressed Death Knights, Hunters, Rogues, and Paladins on beta. The new TCG deck was released and there's also a feature on PrintWarcraft's custom T-shirts!
Black Market Auction House
No one should count on this even being close to a viable option for gearing up a character. If you can raise that kind of gold in the game, you're going to have much better success paying your way into raids for gear than hoping the right items appear for you in the black market AH (which doesn't include set pieces), hoping you can afford to outbid everyone else on your realm, and hoping you're the
