Last Week in WoW: Return of the pirate king edition

Happy Tuesday morning, everyone. I have great news from the Mists of Pandaria beta. Remember everyone's favorite beta buddy, Captain Placeholder? He's back, baby, and he's been promoted. He's only with us for a short time every expansion, but we all treasure it, for sure.

In addition to welcoming back our favorite salty sea dog, there's plenty of other WoW news to catch up on from the last seven days. Realm maintenance this week starts at 3 a.m. PDT and is expected to last eight hours, so you'll have plenty of time to catch up. Read on, won't you?
