An interesting new wrinkle in patch 5.4 has been discovered, in the form of a whole host of new Bind to Account weapons found in the files for Siege of Orgrimmar. Available in Flexible Raid, normal and heroic levels (although for many of them, only one or two versions have yet been found) these it...

Orgrimmar is about to get wrecked, the Horde is in a state of political upheaval, the Alliance is on the brink of storming Stormwind's gates and Garrosh seems to be unstoppable, which leaves many players with one question: Just where the heck is Thrall in all of this, anyway? After all, the former...

Blizzard Lead Encounter Designer Ion "Watcher" Hazzikostas made an interesting post on the PTR forums regarding the delicate relationship between "bleeding edge" raiding guilds and the developers. Both sides stand to gain something from their arrangement, where the guilds get advance attempts on h...

If you're one of the many players who don't like to spend real cash on virtual items (like Blizzard's recently added cosmetic helms), you'll be glad to know that patch 5.4's Timeless Isle is packed with cool cosmetic items that won't cost you anything but time. And by time, we mean grinding -- thou...

The latest batch of Patch 5.4 PTR Patch notes has landed, and brought with it some relatively in-depth class tweaks. The playability of the PTR right now, along with these smaller changes makes me wonder how far along the 5.4 testing schedule we are, as it seems to be progressing nicely. When do y...

You can sort of guess what this boss will do if your raid group wipes. There won't really be any corpses of your group left when Thok is finished. Patch 5.4's Siege of Orgrimmar will feature a trend that started in patch 5.2: Fighting raid sized dinosaurs! Know what's more worse than fighting di...

Perculia of Wowhead has been extremely busy digging up cosmetic glyphs and transmogrification sets. You can see several of the cosmetic glyphs in action in the video above, as well as on the original Wowhead post, and we are very impressed with several of them, particularly the Shaman Rain of Frogs...

Some of the coolest stuff on the PTR are the new glyphs. And one of the coolest purely cosmetic glyphs I've run into is the Glyph of the Weaponmaster. In the header image above, you can see me dual-wielding Uroe, Harbinger of Terror and Bo-Ris, Horror in the Night. And yes, they happen to look like...

Spoilers lurk after the break in this post. Very spoiler-y ones. Frankly, if you're concerned about spoilers, you should probably make a filter or something that artfully removes any post mentioning Adriacraft from your screen. Today's offering is Stivan completing the most recent stage of the Leg...

Yesterdayay, WoW Insider posted a round-up of all the fun things coming out of the latest build of the patch 5.4 PTR, but there was one item that particularly caught my bloodthirsty fancy. The Censer of Eternal Agony grants a buff with a similar name, that makes you hostile to all players, in retu...

The latest goodies and PTR build changes are up on Wowhead, and there are some very fine things there indeed. My personal favorite?

Whilst out killing rares on the Timeless Isle, which, by the way, seems to be the Timeless Isle's principal purpose: a hunting ground for rare mobs, I happened upon some interesting purple pieces. If you have a look at the header image, the left-hand tooltip is a Timeless Curio, an item dropped by...
