Tuesday maintenance notice and roundup for June 3rd, 2008

Good Morning, everyone. It's 4:30 PDT on a Tuesday morning, and you know by now that that means maintenance. For now, most of us will be sitting pretty, with only an hour and a half or so of downtime from 5am to 6:30am PDT. 72 servers, however, will be getting the full treatment, and won't be up until at least 11am PDT. You can see a list of those servers in our original announcement post here.

Since we're coming up on at least an hour of no WoW, if not more for 72 servers and for those stuck at a job or schooling that doesn't allow sneaking in some game time, I would like to, as customary, suggest that you read about WoW, here on WoW Insider. I have a list of some of our best content from the past week organized for your viewing pleasure coming right up after the break.

In raiding news, we had a few world and regional firsts going down, some of them from places you wouldn't expect, and some of them causing more than a little controversy.

You can also check out some of our discussions and opinion articles from the past week:

Here's some of the advice we've handed out this week. There's some pretty handy tips in here that almost any player could make some use of:

If you're looking for the cool and interesting around Azeroth this week, here's a few ideas for you:

  • Does the Spirit Healer whisper subliminal messages? Judge for yourself.
  • Our new column, Ask a Lore Nerd, is going strong coming into its third week. Check out the word from Alex on Night Elf lifespans and that one Argent Dawn dude in Dun Morogh in the latest installment, and ask your questions in the comments.
  • Check out the first article of our new feature series, Illusionary Tactics, on all those cool disguises scattered about in game.
  • See how one WoW player is using his car to show off his love of Murlocs.
  • Remember, it's the first week of the year, so it's a perfect time to go grab your free gems once the servers are back up -- if the Consortium likes you, of course.
