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.
- 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…

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.

Okay time to tell you the best classes for each race starting with the Hordes. The best classes for the Blood elves are Hunter, Mage, Rouge, and Priest. These four classes are the best for Blood elf race. Blood elves make great Hunters, Rouges, Mages, and Priest cause the personality of each class fits the Blood elf race. Although you may choose another class besides the four above, but if you want a strong blood elf race, choose the Rouge class. If you want a good DPS choose the Hunter class for long range and great pets that can be maxed fast. for magic using Mage and Priest are good Magic DPS classes. If you want to ha…

The night elves, or kaldorei ("Children of the Stars" in their native tongue of Darnassian), are a powerful and mystical race whose origin extends back to Azeroth's earliest known history. The founders of a magical and advanced civilization which at its peak spanned the breadth of Ancient Kalimdor, the night elves came into a horrific conflict with the Burning Legion and achieved a pyrrhic victory that sundered Kalimdor's landmass into the continents of the present age. The devastation wrought by their conceit caused the kaldorei to abandon their magical ways entirely, and craft a radically different socie…

According to sources who wish to remain anonymous, Activision-Blizzard is no more. Activision's Bobby Kotick, after expressing private disappointment in the shrinking subscriber base of World of Warcraft, has engineered an intellectual property and stock swap with rival EA to acquire BioWare in exchange for Blizzard Entertainment. Hoping to capitalize on the remaining goodwill of the BioWare name, Activision has decided to rename itself "ActiviWare" with a merging of the two companies already similar logos.
Complete details of the merger swap were not disclosed, but EA's interim CEO has proposed an initial project to try to restore user's trust in SimCity after that property's recent launch problems by marrying some elements of the Warcraf…

The Litch King is the King of World of Warcraft. He is hidden deep within ICC. In order to defeat him you would need a raid group of about 10-15 people of different classes. For example you would need healers, at least 2 tanks, dps and magic users. So there would be at least 1 warrior 1 paladin 2 hunters 3 priest 3 mages and 1 of each of the different classes.

Have you ever heard people talking about this game called "World of Warcraft"? Well, if you are wondering what "World of Warcraft" is and why you should play it, you have come to the right place!!
"World of Warcraft" was introduced in 1994. It is a role-playing game. It has tons of action in the game. In World of Warcraft, you create your own player and name them and click create! It is as simple as that! When you enter the game, there is a short introduction which you can skip by pressing "escape" on your keyboard. After that, the game may look hard and confusing, but you'll get the hang of it! You start off at level 1 and to level up, you kill monsters with spells and attacks, and do quests.
To accept a quest, you go up to a person with a …Read more >

i bought the cataclysm + i dith the subscription but still if i go on me account and want to whisper somebody it says you must upgrade what must i do?
- From what I remember, you will have to create a battle.net account, go into account settings, and fun your Wow trial, nearby there should be an upgrade to cataclysm option. You will need to put in your product code that came with it, unless you bought the game online. It should automatically upgrade if so. I believe there used to also be an option to upgrade after launching the client itself. Let me know if that helps. 18:48, January 7, 2013 (UTC)

One week after the release of World of Warcraft's fourth expansion, Mists of Pandaria, Blizzard Entertainment has announced an increase in subscriber numbers, back to above 10 million.
2.7 million copies of the new expansion have been sold thus far, including digital and retail sales. However, the sales were not enough to overcome first week sales of Cataclysm and Wrath of the Lich King
During the last two expansions, Blizzard had over 12 million active subscribers. In August 2012, it was announced that the number of subscribers dipped to around 9.1 million. The most recent expansion release has helped propel subscriber numbers back upwards.
World of Warcraft still maintains a very strong subscriber base, more than any other subscriber-based …

In preparation of the upcoming release of the newest Middle Earth movie (The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey), Wikia has come up with a way for interested sites to show their enthusiasm and possibly reap some Hobbit-related rewards.
Sites do not need to be related to the Lord of the Rings in any way; the only stipulation is that their content has to tie in to the fantasy genre. WoWWiki overwhelmingly fits that bill.
Here's the info in a nutshell, though be sure to check out the full blog post on Community Central:
1) If interested, a graphic and badge will appear on the main page (only)
2) "The Fantasy Fellowship will also serve as a vehicle for delivering exclusive Hobbit-related content (we’re talking goodies from the movie, games, merchandise…

In this video we will investigate the reasons why WoW became so successful and some of the reasons why it may become stagnated.
Some might say there really is no need to review WoW because it's the undisputed champion of the MMORPG world, and those individuals would be correct. There is no need for me to give a review to it, at least not in the traditional sense of the word.
What I'm going to do with this video is critique WoW. My goal for this review is not to inform people about WoW, but rather analyze what makes it a successful game, and what makes it a stagnating game.
Some have said WoW is the first casual MMORPG and I strongly disagree with that statement. WoW is a MMORPG that can be played in a casual way, but the bulk of content canno…

I'm a lvl 20 blood elf warlock and I recently went to Darkmoon Faire for a quest (with an odd looking grey and yellow question mark) and went through a portal in an arena looking area and an unfamiliar loading screen appeared (which looked to be a picture of Darnassus), and every time it gets stuck at about 90%. I've tried logging off and logging back on, turning the computer off, etc. I can't abandon the quest because every time I press that character it goes straight to the loading screen. I can't even play as this character. Has anyone experienced anything like this? How did you fix it? Thanks in advance.Read more >
, , and are content with staying at Stormstout Brewery now that we helped clear out a bit of the riffraff and secured Thirsty Alley. As we mentioned before, it seems we're just in time in returning things to normal, for an has come all the way from Stoneplow for . We don't quite have a clue what we might be facing as we head down the western road, but as we make our way further from the Alley and Brewery, the surroundings become a bit more wild. Mushan graze in giant packs off to the south, while wolves prowl the grasses and trees to the north.

at Stormstout Brewery might have broken any normal pandaren, but Chen resolves to prove himself to not only but the entire valley community. How? By doing what any self-respecting Stormstout would do: !
To do this, Chen needs supplies, and the best place to get them is at Halfhill and the market. Just like the other areas we've encountered in the Valley, Halfhill is experiencing its own problems. If his perfect brew is to ever see the light of day, Chen, , and must take separate paths for a short while, each pursuing a different but necessary component for the brewing process. Chen starts by gathering the barrels needed, but then sends us in to the Heartland.

Now that we've fought off the virmen and rescued the herd animals, we follow from Shang's Stead. , his niece, is ready to go as always, eager to explore the whole of Pandaria as quickly as she can. She's more than a little annoyed with Chen's steady, slow pace, but he's quite comfortable taking his time... for now.
Halfway down the hill our little trio chances upon a lone pandaren gazing across the fields. Compared to the pandaren we've met thus far, he has a distinctly... southern... drawl to him. He is none other than , a local brewer who uses muddy water for his beer. But his ability to brew has been hampered by the virmen. With beer threatened, Chen is quick to offer aid, or at least our aid.

With the Jade Forest closed to players, we headed back into questing by diving into the Valley of the Four Winds. Unlike the Forest, this is a neutral zone, and the vast majority of our interactions are with the local pandaren. The Valley serves as an agricultural center for Pandaria, many of the giant crops within the Heartland fed by waters cascading from the Vale of Eternal Blossoms. The local farmers are beset by virmen in the east, while those in the west are rapidly losing their lands to the mantid swarming over the Great Wall from the Dread Wastes.
First, a few vistas to get us off on the right foot:

There is a possibility in the future of having access to a 3d model viewer that would allow people to look at models of items, NPCs, and mobs as they appear in the game. More than likely the way it would function is direct linking to another site that has the viewer already in place.
There are various pros to this:
- No more clicking through to a site, than having to click another button to access their viewer. It would be a one-step process.
- This can be valuable for those wishing to use transmogrification, as well as those just wishing to actually see what a boss drops, or what that PvP/heirloom/PvE gear looks like before committing to spending points/currency.
- WoWWiki would also receive linking in turn.

At last, the final zone was opened for the Mists of Pandaria expansion. After the darkness and horror of the Dread Wastes, the Vale of Eternal Blossoms is like a breath of fresh air. The trees are in an eternal state of autumn, with golds spread everywhere. The same can be said of the grasses, but while the grasses of Kun-Lai Summit might share a similar hue, there is a distinct impression that these golden blades are vibrant. Lakes and pools abound, all tucked behind the safety of the great wall.
Besides the great gate separating the Vale from the Dread Wastes, or the gate opening to Kun-Lai Summit, the most impressive structures in the west are the pair of giant mogu statues standing above the Golden Pagoda. Yes, these are very same that …Read more >
The Dread Wastes is, by far, the darkest zone on the continent of Pandaria. Having progressed from the Jade Forest, it seems the theme while transitioning zones has been an ever-increasing sense of dread, war, and turmoil. The Jade Forest was benign by comparison.
Here we have an entirely different type of forest, one whose trees are twisted and gnarly. Almost all are inhabited by the mantid, and it seems you can't really go two feet without running into them. Sha influence is palpable, as the boundaries of the Horrid March and many of the trees themselves bear the now-familiar flickering energies associated with the elementals.
Almost every one of the new humanoid races can be found here in varying numbers. The saurok are found in the coast…Read more >
Now we have the last (currently) available zone for you: Townlong Steppes. By and large this area is mostly covered in grassy hills, with the pandaren seeming as if they are hanging on by a thread to their various encampments. Much of the eastern part of the zone is yaungol heavy, and Longying Outpost is consistently under attack. Not far away is the Gao-Ran Battlefront, under heavy attack from the mantid. The insect creatures have swarmed from the Dread Wastes to assault and infiltrate, even going so far as to attempt a leap across the Widening Deep.
This is the first major presence of the mantid. More of them can be found assaulting the island Niuzao Temple sits atop, making their way across from Sra'vess, the island they seem to hold exc…Read more >
Kun-Lai Summit definitely has a different feel than the other zones we've explored thus far. The Jade Forest was largely vibrant and filled with thick bamboo forest while, in contrast, the Krasarang Wilds were a much darker kind of forest, a dense jungle filled with hidden dangers. The Valley of the Four Winds was more about rolling hills dotted with rocky crags, small lakes, and ponds, very much a thriving pandaren community, despite its perils. The Veiled Stair was a different creature altogether, shrouded in mist and mystery.
Kun-Lai Summit is at once both beautiful and deadly. The Ancient Passage deposits would-be adventurers in the autumn-like serenity of Binan Village, but it is soon apparent that everyone choosing to call the summit …Read more >
Screenshots of the Krasarang Wilds has been added! Unlike the Jade Forest, which is more serene at times with a lighter ambiance, the Wilds are covered a in thick, foreboding jungle. This oppressive feeling is instant as we stepped into Zhu's Watch, and only grew as we encountered hostile elements, chief among them the mogu, sha, and saurok. Enjoy the screenshots below and take a look at the video. You'll catch a glimpse of Galleon, one of the first world bosses we've spotted, standing high upon the cliffs within the first seconds of the clip.

We've got a few videos to share before we delve into Krasarang Wilds. We know it's one thing to look at a collection of screenshots, but it can be quite a different experience to see with your own eyes! Check out the small bundle of videos below for a few zone teasers and a look at what pandaren use as taxis for their flight paths.

After romping through the Jade Forest previously, we continued on to the Valley of the Four Winds. There is a distinct difference between the two zones. The Jade Forest is covered in dense trees and littered with hozen and all manner of wild creatures, while the majority of the Valley of the Four Winds appears relatively peaceful, with gently rolling, grassy hills.
Of course, this verdant serenity is misleading, to say the least; each farmstead has some sort of beast or thief they are concerned about, ranging from now-familiar virmen to beasts such as worgs and hawks. Steep mountains, a shattered wall, a long river, and dizzying cliffs serve as borders for the Valley.
While we were exploring, we also ran across the Veiled Stair. This rocky p…Read more >

We're taking a small hiatus from running through quests in order to focus on our zone updates! The Jade Forest is largely complete, and before we start really jumping into the Valley of the Four Winds we decided you might appreciate a large gallery of all the subzones we've visited. We've also included three videos: the newly updated character creation screen and the Alliance and Horde intros to Pandaria. Enjoy!
