Last Week in WoW: I left my heart in San Diego


Happy Tuesday morning, everyone. The big news this week is kind of invisible. Blizzard introduced the first teaser trailer for the new Warcraft movie at the San Diego Comic Con. They then proceeded to not put it online. If it makes you feel any better, it apparently wasn't actual movie footage, since they haven't started shooting yet.

There's plenty of other news for the week with more substance, luckily, including new stuff from the patch 5.4 PTR. Realm maintenance this morning begins at 3 a.m. PDT and lasts 8 hours, so you should have time to read up.
