Patch 2.3 launched relatively recently, 2.3.2 is on the PTR, and 2.4 is presumably pretty far from PTR still. As it turns out, that is expected to be about it in the way of pre-Wrath patches, according to Eyonix. 2.4 will introduce the Sunwell Plateau, an outdoor zone, including a 5-man dungeon an...

This week brings John Patricelli, sometimes known as the Big Bear Butt Blogger, to begin looking at leveling the class from the ground up. So, you've been thinking of rolling a Druid. You've seen D...

One of my favorite little additions in patch 2.3 was the boat/zeppelin vendors. Sure, there's a whole crew there, but after talking to them once to see what gossip they had, the vendors were the only ones I went back to. Since Blizzard refuses to take me up on my suggestion to allow fishing from mov...

MMO Champion has a bit of information about some of the latest changes coming in patch 2.3.2. First is something of a non-change for Shamans in particular: Blizzard had in mind to add a 30-second cooldown to Earth Shield, as well as a 50% mana-cost reduction, but now they're putting this change on ...

On Monday, the Horde of Retaliation managed to capture every node in Alterac Valley except the Stormpike Aid Station (and the bugged Irondeep Mine), whittling the Alliance down to 0 reinforcements and almost no honor. Surprising to many, this coup was achieved because of a strong, co-ordinated defen...

Xella found an extremely fascinating change in 2.3 over on LJ-- Warden Iolol is no longer known by that name. Instead, he is known as Warden Moi'bff Jill. He claims that a "secret vote" was passed around, and that his name was changed. Secret vote? The only place I know of where Iolol's name got m...

If not, there's no need to fear, because we're got a gallery of screenshots from the dungeon that will allow you to enjoy the environm...

Feeling a little gassy now that Thanksgiving has come and gone? Not if you're an engineer -- because gas clouds (as well as other types of clouds) are curiously nowhere to be found. At the time of this post , the disappearance of felmist, windy cloud, swamp gas and arcane vortex spawns was being w...

Zul'Aman was released with the rest of patch 2.3 two weeks ago today. Due to its place in the progression chain, many guilds were able to burn through it on the first day it was released. Downing Zul'jin is nothing when you're raiding in Hyjal and Black Temple, apparently. Of course, the intended au...

Every Monday Scott Andrews contributes Officers' Quarters, a column about the ins and outs of guild leadership. It's been nearly two weeks since patch 2.3 went live, so I thought it might be helpful to talk about the impact it has had on my guild and get some feedback from other officers about their...

As we all know, with the changes to Alterac Valley in patch 2.3 have come changes to the tactical balance of the game. Specifically, if you're not willing to put some real effort into defense, you're not going to win, and you can end up in a turtle game waiting for one side to run out of reinforce...

When the Call to Arms weekends first started for Battlegrounds, there were a lot of complaints about the honor junkies causing losses and generally noobing it up. The regulars were right to a point, playing Battlegrounds on non-honor bonus weekends usually means you are playing with people who know ...

Each week, Robin Torres writes WoW, Casually for the player who has 2 hours or less to play at a time. I hope everyone had a drama-free Thanksgiving (void where prohibited). And for those of you in retail, it's been nice knowing you. We'll see you at Christmas. This weekend, the Call to Arms is fo...

The Care and Feeding of Warriors heads into the home stretch of this series of leveling guides with a look at the levels that used to be just before endgame, and which now are just before stepping through the dark portal. Luckily, Matthew Rossi has so many warriors that it's not terribly hard to f...

Leftovers rule. You can pick out exactly what you want without overanxious relatives eagerly watching to make sure you're trying the dish they slaved over, and all the flavors have had time to meld together in exquisite harmony. So while the crazy shoppers head out for Black Friday retail madness,...

With the Patch 2.3 leveling increase changes, many players stuck at the level cap have either created new characters or dusted off forgotten alts. Logging back in at lower levels is quite a rush at first. From the lightning-fast rocket ride of the first 10 levels to the new express train to Outland...

Players are reporting that their guild banks are being robbed by new guild recruits. While this is a known issue for Blizzard, many players are still unaware of the bug. Currently, withdrawal limits are not reset when a character joins a new guild. Whatever a character's old guild status was carr...

Totem Talk is the column for Shamans. Matthew Rossi lives in Canada, so he had Thanksgiving last month and today is just Thursday to him. On the down side, this means no turkey, but on the up side, this means he's desperately trying to get instance runs on his Draenei Shaman and failing because no o...
