The Care and Feeding of Warriors is about warriors, who hurl themselves into the fray, the very teeth of danger armed with nothing more than the biggest weapons and armored with the absolutely heaviest armor we can find. Hey, we're not stupid, we're just crazy. With patch 3.3.5 upon us and the a...

The Icecrown Citadel raid buffs, Hellscream's Warsong and Strength of Wrynn, just went from 15 with today's maintenance. As always, this means a bunch of raid groups will be able to progress a lot farther in Icecrown Citadel, and we're two thirds of the way to the final 30%. Assuming the schedule...

One of my favorite WoW information sites, Armory Data Mining and its related blog, has now been updated for patch 3.3.3. We've profiled the site here before, but if you're not familiar with it, it's run by a fellow named Zardoz who trawls the armory assembling statistics on race, class and spec pop...

The Icecrown Citadel raid buffs, Hellscream's Warsong and Strength of Wrynn, have increased from 10 today. This is great news for those guilds just on the cusp of downing a boss -- expect to see quite a few new Lich King kills and some more progression in the next day or so. The buff is going ...

Raiders rejoice (or despair depending on how you feel about it)! The Icecrown raid wide buff has been increased by an additional 5. Anyway, if your raid has been on the brink of taking down some bosses but could not muster enough firepower, then the improved Strength of Wrynn or Hellscream's Wars...

A heads-up for our Mac users, although there's a good chance you've already been painfully aware of this if you play on one of the affected systems -- patch 3.3.3 has been causing major issues for some PowerPC and Tiger users, which have (hopefully) been fixed by the mini-patch 3.3.3a. S4d1K -...

A small update has been deployed this morning -- patch 3.3.3a. The file is only about five megs, and we don't know a whole lot about what it does. Speculation is that it allows PPC users to play the game again, although we can't verify that right now (I'm sure some of you can, hint hint). The pa...

As of patch 3.3.3, some people have noticed that some of their level 70 gear is now missing gems and enchants -- they've simply up and disappeared. It only appears to be affecting gear and equipment acquired prior to Wrath, so level 80's shouldn't have too much to worry about -- but for leveling al...

There have been reports in the blogosphere that there was an undocumented reduction to the milling cast time in patch 3.3.3. It used to be two very long, agonizing seconds for a scribe to turn herbs into pigments, and is reportedly going twice as fast: a blazing speed of one mill per second. Thi...

Not surprisingly we already have a list of known issues for the just released patch 3.3.3. None of the issues on the list deal with the servers, and people have been reporting several issues with loading their character past the character select screen. Don't be shocked to see some short downtime o...

Patch 3.3.3 is live, and players all over are checking out all the new features -- I myself was busily exchanging battleground marks for honor points on all my various characters when I noticed something... odd. My level 70 pet had a new buff. Not just any buff -- Hellscream's Warsong, the buff fro...

People are anxiously awaiting the servers to come back up today, fresh with all their patch 3.3.3 goodness. However as luck (tradition) would have it, the servers are not back up yet. This shouldn't really shock anyone, but so many people get angry over it we had to whip out the baby. While you'...
