The Classifieds: A vacation package


If you remember Jeff Reitman from his performance at the WoW Insider BlizzCon 2010 reader meetup, then you get another chance to enjoy his comedy with his newly released video, Cataclysm Tour Guide. It's a brief video highlighting the exciting vacation packages made available with the passage of Deathwing over Azeroth's shores.

In case you're in the mood for something a little more musical, then EmberIsolte has released a new song. This is an English translation of Lament of the Highborne. EmberIsolte really gets to show off her vocal chops here, although I'll admit I prefer the in-game language for the song.

Rogadeticon of Farstriders (US-A) On the eve of Cataclysm, Rogadeticon led a group of folks through a few random hard modes in Ulduar off his quest to open Algalon's gate. He then explained the Algalon fight to us. Under his guidance, he took a bunch of folks who hadn't seen the fight before to killing Algalon in under 1 hour. Getting the "Starcaller" title was a treat to all of us that were present. -- Akhria of Farstriders (US-A)
