Good Tuesday Morning, everyone. We're now around 2 weeks into the new expansion, and I'm sure by now everyone has some reason to give thanks for something in this thing. Despite the long queues and the iffy server issues that plague some, I'd say it's overall been pretty sweet.

Downtime today is around 6 hours, from 5 AM to 11 AM Pacific time. If that cuts into your normal playtime, or if you're stuck at school or work, I'm going to suggest my usual: Why not catch up on WoW news? There's a lot of it right now, of course, what with the new expansion. Let's look back at this past week in WoW:

  • BlizzCast 6 is out! It's mostly focused on Diablo and Starcraft, but there's a few things a WoW Player might be interested in.
