The Daily Blues


Each day will take you through all the blue posts and other Blizzard news from around the internet. From Ghostcrawler's latest posts to the lowdown on StarCraft II and Diablo III, we'll keep you informed.

I totally agree with Bashiok. It's almost a triple post.

Bashiok -- Double Post
Oh man. Oh my gosh. Double post. It's a whole double post. All the way.

It's almost a triple post.


So intense.

Ghostcrawler -- Hunter shot use
Marks and Survival generally won't use Cobra Shot in PvE -- mobs don't change their armor. BM will use Cobra Shot in PvP and PvE.

Ghostcrawler -- Warrior damage
You didn't lose any damage. Talents that grant nothing but armor pen or Strength are not the kind of talents we want to offer any more, at least below the first couple of tiers. You won't be doing any less damage when you log in for Cataclysm than you do today.


Valnoth -- Deepholm bug fix
If you are experiencing client crashes in the area near the Alliance Gunship, temporarily turn your graphic settings to low and set your view distance to the minimum setting. After you've completed the quests at the gunship, feel free to restore your settings.

The fix for this issue has already been implemented in the next build.

Zarhym -- Best chance at getting in the beta
For the large majority of players who receive beta access, it's really random. We try and bring in as many people as possible each beta. It's true that we sometimes select people for testing, but that involves very limited circumstances or promotional contests. Your best shot of getting into beta is really just to opt in.

Lylirra -- Party and raid frames updates

A few things I would love to see:

Option to scale them
Option to display horizontally
Option to see party member pets

This functionality is currently planned for both party and raid frames.

Daelo -- Stonecore is open for testing
This level 82-84 instance is now available, and the entrance lies in Deepholm. In this current beta patch you must be level 83 to enter.

There are breadcrumb NPCs in Orgrimmar and Stormwind that will take you Deepholm, and from there you can get to the entrance.

Lylirra -- Music in Cataclysm
Cataclysm will have the largest musical "loot drop" in World of Warcraft's history! A plethora of never-before-heard music will make its debut, setting the mood for your adventures throughout Azeroth.

That said, we love many of the original melodies as much as our players, so keep an ear out for your favorites. Some familiar themes may reflect the changes wrought by the cataclysm, while others still may be heard just as you remember them. :)

Grimiku -- Crygil is gone
He was part of a quest chain to mold keys to get into Blizzard HQ....

Just kidding. He decided to pursue other real life adventures around the same time Eyonix left.
