A long-standing bug regarding Shaman having difficulty curing Rogue poisons will finally be squashed, though not until 2.1.0. From Ommra: Ok, so I had the wrong information on when this bug was fixed. Apparently it didn't get fixed in the last patch (as you noticed), but will get fixed in 2.1.0 ins...

Blizzard people always give fairly good interviews, and this one is no exception (even if it is a week old or so). Play.tm caught up with WoW lead producer Shane Dabiri about the success of WoW and BC, and what the future holds. I'd agree with one of the commentors on the blog that most of the quest...
