Wrath is almost all wrapped up, and while we didn't know much about it before the expansion, we've all certainly experienced the token system that Blizzard implemented as they went along, where early instances drop one kind of badge/token, and then the newer instances offer up new tokens, which can...

To go along with their recently created Twitter accounts, Blizzard has now started up an official YouTube channel as well.
