We can't believe it either – Turpster has been let loose on WoW.com to bring you videos from in and around the World of Warcraft! You've heard him on the WoW Insider Show, and now see him on TurpsterVision right here on WoW.com.
Happy Labor Day everyone! But more importantly, Happy Birthday to me! Today is my favorite day of the year for obvious reasons but it could also be your favorite day of the year too thanks to my super-awesome-grunty-birthday-giveaway! All you have to do is to follow me on Twitter and sending me a 'Happy Birthday' tweet (Or anything you like, but it's my birthday - Did I mention it's my birthday?) The winner will be selected after 12am Wednesday and notified via a Direct Message on Twitter so make sure to get your tweet in before then.
Battle.net has some pretty awesome new features on the horizon. Sacco has already told us about the Real ID system giving us the ability for cross-realm, cross-server and cross-game chat. Migrating your WoW account isn't mandatory just yet, but it will become so in the future, though there are some great benefits to migrating early. Multiboxers can enjoy having just a single login for all of their accounts and just the one Blizzard Authenticator associated with them all. Any other Blizzard games you own can also be associated with your Battle.net account allowing you to download the clients to your PC without the original disks -- something that saved me $15 on buying StarCraft again (again -- I don't know how many StarCrafts I've bought over the years). You can also opt in to the StarCraft II beta and register an interest in any future Blizzard beta tests in each of their IPs.
So what are you waiting for? The authentication issues that plagued Battle.net accounts when they were first introduced seem to have died down now and the new announced features, whenever they arrive, look awesome and could change the way we play WoW forever. But there is one reason why you should migrate to Battle.net now if you haven't already, and his name is Grunty, and he could be yours if you take part in my super-awesome-grunty-birthday-giveaway!
