Loyalty, and its limits, are pretty big underlying themes in WoW's current story arc. As of patch 5.1, the WoW poster child for complex loyalties and their consequences is Aethas Sunreaver. Aethas has a divided heart. He is a blood elf (and was, once upon a time, a high elf) and as such, he is lo...

Another round of hotfixes for patch 5.2 has just been released on the official blog. It's a pretty short list, by and large involving changes for several classes. Before you get too panicked, most of the class changes simply involve tweaks to T15 set bonuses rather than direct class changes. Sham...

So the Patch 5.3 PTR was announced earlier this week, and I am currently downloading the files for it as I write this. Patch 5.2 only went live a couple of weeks ago, and its PTR began in January, a mere few weeks after 5.1 was released. Oh, and Mists of Pandaria itself has only been available si...

With the World of Warcraft community adjusting to life after patch 5.2, Blizzard is revving up the engine to patch 5.3. The public test realm patch notes have become available, although the patch itself is not yet on the PTR. Patch 5.3 looks to be a boon to PvP players, as it'll kick off a bra...

The deadly dinosaur that caused the mass destruction you see documented in this picture, which was tweeted recently by Dave Kosak, has had a massive nerf to his health. It's gone from 872 million to 436 million, which is a 50% nerf. The reason for this is likely twofold. Firstly, the boss ...

Just when you thought it was over, another round of hotfixes have been released. Today's list of fixes is pretty short and sweet, with only one small class related bug fix. The rest of the tweaks by and large involve the Isle of Thunder and the Throne of Thunder raid. And for those diligently w...

Some like them hot, and the latest round of hotfixes has just hit the Warcraft official blog page, this time around there's a few changes to bosses that may well relate to the inordinate amount of time it took guilds to take down Dark Animus in the Throne of Thunder World First race, as well as...

Along with a new raid, patch 5.2 introduced several solo scenarios into the mix. Some are purely for furthering the plot, but one is far more interesting than that. The Troves of the Thunder King allows you to walk into Lei Shen's treasure vaults, steal as many items and as much gold as you can...

Fresh off the official Warcraft blog are yet another round of hotfixes. For those wondering why we're seeing so many of these with this patch in particular, it's been mentioned by several developers and blues that 5.2 is in fact a gigantic patch, perhaps even the largest patch ever. It's certai...

There's a long-standing rumor that Winston Churchill allowed the bombing of Coventry, even though he could have prevented it via intelligence gathered by cracking German war codes, in order to preserve the advantage of having cracked those codes. Is it true? I have no idea. More important for our...

Patch 5.2, much like the Mists of Pandaria expansion overall, is practically dripping with content. There is content simply oozing out of Lor'themar Theron's over-sized pointy ears. Keeping track of it all is not the most fun thing in the world, and who wants to bother with that, anyway? If you'r...

Another set of hotfixes has been released for patch 5.2 -- but this time, there's some interesting additions to the hotfixes we've grown accustomed to. While we've still got the usual round of class changes, dungeon and raid tweaks, and bug fixes, Blizzard has posted a couple of threads on the ...
