As is unfortunately usual in a Ghostcrawler twitter conversation, it starts out with a troll trying to get under the skin of WoW's lead system designer, and ends with Ghostcrawler making a point that everyone should hear.

It will, however, mark a crucial turning point in the conflict between the Alliance and the Horde when both sides storm the walls of Orgrimmar to take down Warchief Garrosh Hellscream.

Patch 5.4 will be dropping in two weeks, and that means that the battle in the Barrens will be going away, forever.

It's one of the last patches of World of Warcraft's Mists of Pandaria expansion, and that means one more set of adjustments to the game's classes.

PTR files are the gift that keeps on giving: today AdriaCraft posted videos of two mounts from the patch files, which we expect will be drops in the Siege of Ogrimmar raid.

Blizzard Lead Encounter Designer Ion Hazzikostas has already told us that the Timeless Isle, coming in patch 5.4, is meant to be a different sort of experience for gamers: Watcher Note that the Timeless Isle is largely a self-directed experience, which diverges somewhat from our recent practice...
