While I sit here and agonize over my answer, why don't you check out our usual roundup of the past seven days' news? Downtime this week is just another set of rolling restarts -- but hey, why not give the servers a few more minutes to calm down?
Hot news and features
- The Mists of Pandaria opening cinematic will debut at 8:00 a.m. EDT on Aug. 16. In the meantime, you can watch the pandaren introduction video instead.
- Do you like daily quests? There will be 48 per day available in Mists of Pandaria. Olivia's not too sure she'll be doing them.
- Still, you may want to get used to doing dailies if you want reputation. Mists faction tabards won't grant reputation in dungeons.
- In order to promote pet hunting, wild battle pets will not be tradable.
