The Tuesday Morning Post: Later, losers!
Danny Whit is usually the one sitting here writing this thing up for your maintenance day entertainment, but he's out of the office today. Where is he? I wish I knew. Last time I saw him he put on a pair of shades, gave me a thumbs up, then jumped out of our office window and landed on a sweet hog three stories down. He yelled something in Greek, then rode off into the sunset. So... here I am. The craziest part of it all? The window was closed. He didn't even have the decency to open it and now there's a draft. Thanks a lot, Danny.

Servers are down, and will remain down for a number of hours as patch 3.1.3 rolls out and many servers receive significant hardware upgrades. As long as you're here, you might as well make the most of it. In case you've missed it, here's the best of from the past 7(ish) days.

Hot News and Features
  • While not WoW specific news, Windows 7 is on the horizon. Our own Adam Holisky took it for a test drive with WoW and let us know how it went.
  • Only a select few guilds have managed to down Algalon the Observer, and only on 10-man so far. His Heroic version has yet to die. If you're interested in a look at the boss, the Underground Kosmonavts have a video of their world-second kill on the crazy constellation.
  • I'm still chugging away on Turpen, who hit level 15 last week. Keep an eye on the site today for an update! The little guy is 25 now!
  • WoWInterface just launched the beta of their new addon manager, MMOUI Minion. Eliah Hecht jumped on it in a flash and has a very quick review for you.
Class News and Guides
Items, Dungeons, PvP, Professions, and More
  • Our raiding column, Ready Check, has expanded to twice-a-week. Michael Gray joins Jennie Lees in writing this sweet thang. Gray's first contribution is an in-depth look at cooldowns in a raiding environment and how to use them!
  • I didn't like how long that bullet point was going to be, so I made a new one. Jennie's edition of Ready Check this week makes a bold statement: I'm more hardcore than you. Wait, what does that even mean?
  • Do you collect recipes for whatever crazy profession you've picked up this week? Not sure where to find the recipes you need in Northrend? Insider Trader has you covered.
  • It's okay to be a noob. Really. It is. Embrace the noobitude. Well, not forever. It's okay for now, though!
  • The Colosseum's interview this week is quite possibly one of the best its seen yet. Go read what Ogc the Warlock has to say about their arena experience.
