    BlizzCon WoW News (P1)

    November 8, 2013 by Raylan13

    Comment here!


    Greetings from Anaheim! We've managed to survive the first bit of BlizzCon and have some great news about the next Warcraft expansion: Warlords of Draenor (ps - The Dark Below was a hoax). I know everyone just wants to get to the meat of the news, so here we go!


    Remember ? Yeah, who doesn't? Well, if you thought he would roll over and stay imprisoned indefinitely, you are dead wrong. Garrosh escapes imprisonment and, thanks to a "friend" that can bend time, hops back to where it all began: before the opening of the Dark Portal.

    To what end, though? One might think his motives pure (if one hadn't met him) as he wants to prevent the orcs from drinking the blood of Mannoroth. That's all well and good, but his true reason? To unite …

    BlizzCon 2013 is right around the corner, and today Blizzard Entertainment opened doors to the pre-sale the Blizzard Store. The assortment of items includes a Diablo III backpack, a WoW mahjong set, a handful of cute plushies, and various art books, among other things. If you were lucky enough to get a physical ticket or purchased a virtual ticket, the sale will run from October 11 through November 9; remember additional items will be added as time goes on.

    If you are lucky enough to be an attendee, consider heading over to the Meeting Stone to see who else is going, plan any meetups, or gloat (well, maybe not that...). There will also be a physical Meeting Stone at the conference:



    Two more realms have been put on the list for Conn…

    News Roundup 7/24

    Comment here!

    A month has gone by since our last news update. We're still waiting for Patch 5.4.0 which, among other things, brings us the Siege of Orgrimmar and Virtual Realms. So what's the news in the meantime?


    If you were lucky enough to attend Comic-Con recently, Blizzard released a very short video blip about the Warcraft movie. Judging by news reports, it wasn't really a trailer as opposed to a "mood piece", but the excitement is building. No one's been permitted to show the clip online, but here's a short description:


    From what little information has been released it's speculated that the movie will be a combination of live action with some hefty CG thrown in.


    Forbes, among others, is in a constant state of wondering if Warcraft will mo…

    News Roundup 6/28

    It's been a little bit of time since out last news roundup, but we thought we'd throw some more news together for your reading pleasure... or displeasure, as some of the current news might illicit. First up: hacking Warcraft.


    Unless you've been hiding under a rock or perhaps don't use the mobile features Blizzard has provided, you have surely heard by now that the mobile armory was somehow hacked. Many players have had large quantities of gold vanish from their characters, spent on worthless junk on the Auction House.

    Thankfully the good folks at Blizzard were able to muddle through the issue and fix it, restoring access to the armory. There's likely still plenty of players out there who are awaiting restoration of items and gold…

    News Roundup 5/31

    May 31, 2013 by Raylan13

    Slow news week! Never fear, we've found at least a little snippet of news here and there. Seeing as how the next big patch is a ways off, this lack of news isn't much of a surprise.

    (Breaking news at the bottom about the Warcraft movie!!)

    New mount
    Blizzard recently unleashed a new Flying mount upon the store, the Armored Bloodwing ($25/£17):
    Soar into battle atop the undisputed ruler of the night skies—the all-new Armored Bloodwing mount. This monstrous, flesh-eating bat is the perfect companion for trips that call for death and destruction.
    Superman
    Wait - what? What does the Man of Steel have to do with Warcraft? Well, nothing really. However, the actor that plays the Kryptonian in the upcoming movie, Henry Cavill, revealed in an interview wi…

    News Roundup 5/24

    May 24, 2013 by Raylan13


    Unless you've been hiding under a rock or just haven't played in a while, you know that Patch 5.3.0 dropped this week. The Escalation patch has quite a few features packed into it, including a new battleground, new arena, four new scenarios, epic questlines, and some changes miners and herbalists might appreciate (yes, you, too can mine and herb in Pandaria, low-skill gatherers!). Blizzard has posted a great roundup of their own on the official site, including content overview, developer tidbits, and links to interviews.

    More news:
