In honor of today's long awaited update, this morning's Breakfast Topic poses a patch-related proposition. Player Beardsley of the Tichondrius server posed a very interesting question: If real life were an upcoming patch, what would you put in it? Answers from the thread is very inventive. Here are ...

Restless for the 2.2 patch to go live, players have been flooding the official forums for updates on long requested features: surnames, player housing, engineering revamp, to name a few. The response to all these requests was the same: we'd like to implement these ideas, but don't know when. The onl...

After taking a summer break from WoW, I returned to discover the joys of Daily Quests. I have limited play time and these daily quests go a long way in helping me towards that mythical 5,000 gold that will grant me epic druid Flight Form. Well, 5kg and some quest or something. Taking to the skies of...

Hot on the heels of the Orc shoulder scandal (to be fixed in patch 2.2), World of Raids has some screenshots suggesting that Draenei shoulder graphics are smaller on the PTRs. While I always thought the level of concern with shoulder size to be sort of odd, the outcry over Orc shoulders made it cl...

World of Raids has pointed out some lowered enchanting costs that are showing up on the latest build of the public test realms. However, changes at present only seem to apply to enchanter-only ring enchants (if you're not familiar, these enchants soulbind the item when enchanted, so they're only u...

Patch 2.2, currently in testing on the PTR, has some great improvements like voice chat and reporting AFK'ers in Battlegrounds. What it doesn't have is any new, big, sexy chunk of playable content. So when are we going to see the post-Karazhan 10-main raid zone, Zul'Aman? New Heroic Badge rewards? ...

When the Public Test Realm is up, any player who has had an active account since November 2006 can copy their character over to help test the new update.

Reader Chris was just logging on to the public test realms to check out the arena vendors when he stumbled into this scene. So take this word of advice -- if you're simply interested in examining new vendor items, perhaps copying your characters over to the PvP test realm isn't the best idea. Othe...

Over on YouTube, Neona has posted a couple of videos demonstrating a lighting effects change in patch 2.2. Sure, it's a minor cosmetic change, but it is pretty cool looking. (Of course, I'm always happy about more glowiness -- so a glowy sun is all good!)...

On the Test Realm Forums, Hortus has compiled a list of all known issues on the PTRs. While bugs are never fun, the good news here is that they're all being investigated by Blizzard QA, and we can hope they'll be fixed well before patch 2.2 hits the live realms. Items of note include: Many ite...

For the many Orc players unhappy about the state of their shoulder armor, I have good news and I have bad news. The good news is that Drysc has confirmed that the fix for the shoulder armor graphics has made it into the upcoming 2.2 patch! And the bad news? Well, no one knows quite when the 2.2 patc...

EU Forum MVP Schwick has posted a very nice and very thorough listing of everything we know about patch 2.2, 2.3, and the next expansion. As far as I know, there's nothing really new here, but it's a terrifically indepth listing of every rumor, hint, and suspicion that we've heard so far. Some of th...
