As seems to be the usual pattern, after the public test realms were brought online they were immediately slammed with traffic, bringing them offline again.  As of writing this, the only test realm that seems to be up is the RP-PVP realm.  The character transfer system suffered a similar fa...

No, patch 1.11 isn't even live on the test server, but there is already information coming out about patch 1.12.  It seems to be fairly well-known that rogues will be getting reviewed in this patch, and World of Warcraft Vault's E3 wrap-up notes that we should expect some kind of PvP revamp.&n...

Blizzard has released official information about the new tier 3 armor sets, which we'll find in the Naxxramas dungeon to be released in patch 1.11.  I have to say I'm pleased with the graphical look they're going with - unlike tier 2, I wouldn't feel embarrassed to be seen in any of these sets....

News about patch 1.11 has come from Blizzard at a snail's pace - one tiny bit at a time.  While there's been a good amount of information released, it's difficult to keep track.  However, WoWWiki has the answer, with a neatly compiled list of released changes, along with links to the sourc...
