Alliance Chopper Appears, Blizzard Clarifies Several Warlords Misconceptions
2014/08/01 at 12:10 PM
We've got several giveaways going on: Wowhead's 100k Twitter Giveaway of Beta Keys, Gift Cards, TCG Pets and a TCG Mount, and our Curse of Naxxramas giveaway for iPads, Hearthstone Pillows and more!
The Alliance Chopper Appears!
The Alliance Chopper's arrival on Azeroth is announced - sooner than even we'd expected to see it. Do note the key final sentence of the Blizzard post - these mounts are not cross-faction!
<p>Due to popular demand (and a few shady back-alley deals in Stormwind\u2019s Old Town), the Alliance bike built for <em>Azeroth Choppers<\/em> will be rumbling its way to a vendor in Azeroth sometime after the launch of Warlords of Draenor. This mount will cost a pretty hefty sum of gold, however, so you might want to start saving up now if you want to ride around in style on this masterful machine.\u00a0As a reminder, once the winning <a href="http:\/\/bit.ly\/1kqblqR" target="_blank">Horde Chopper<\/a> is added to the game, it will be available for free to players who log in between now and\u00a0September 30, 2014.<\/p>
<p style="text-align: center;"><a class="lightbox" href="https:\/\/bnetcmsus-a.akamaihd.net\/cms\/gallery\/30AB8HIO3LR41406887053323.jpg"><img alt="WoWChoppers_WoW_Lightbox_CK_500x313.jpg" data-id="15057276" src="https:\/\/bnetcmsus-a.akamaihd.net\/cms\/gallery\/FCDIWEEILK1V1406887051952.jpg" \/><\/a><\/p>
<p>Remember, only characters of the associated faction will be able to ride each bike, so buyer beware!<\/p>
Blizzard Dismisses Several Warlords of Draenor Misconceptions
Blizzard Community Manager Lore has taken to the official forums to dismiss several key misconceptions about Warlords of Draenor:
This thread is getting a lot of attention, which is unfortunate, as it's chock full of misinformation. Let me clarify what I can:
-Black Temple and Frostwolf keep no longer hub cities, just quest locations you visit once.
They won't be hub cities, true. They're a bit more than "just quest locations you visit once," though.

Heartbleed Account Security
Blizzard has released an official statement on the Heartbleed bug. The long and short of it is that Battle.net was not compromised, but if you use the same password for Battle.net as you do for other sites, you should change it. As a rule, it's best to use unique passwords for your different accounts.
Many news sites are reporting a vulnerability (dubbed the Heartbleed bug) discovered in OpenSSL, an encryption technology used by a majority of websites and online services\u2014including banks, email providers, and social media sites\u2014to protect sensitive data as it\u2019s transmitted from users to web services.
We want to emphasize that Battle.net\u2019s encryption was not affected by this vulnerability. However, if you use the same password on Battle.net that you use elsewhere, your Battle.net account could be at risk if those sites were affected by this bug.
If the above situation applies to you, we recommend changing your Battle.net password to a new, unique password. As always, we recommend that you maintain separate login credentials for each online service you use. Using the same email or password across multiple ser
Blizzard Launches Azeroth Choppers

Azeroth ChoppersThis video was just uploaded to the World of Warcraft YouTube account, and appears to relate to the popular American Choppers TV series.
Players will vote to see which bike gets made into a World of Warcraft mount, meaning, presumably, that only one faction gets a new mount as a result of the show. There is also an official Azeroth Choppers site.
Hit the break for the full information on the show from the site.
