Last Week in WoW: Everybody must get Hearthstoned edition


Happy Tuesday morning, everyone. At first it seemed like all the big news this week was going to happen outside of WoW. Hearthstone got some big news, we learned more about BlizzCon rewards, and we even have a release date for the Warcraft movie.. But Blizzard came through in the 11th hour with a patch 5.4 developer roundtable, delivering lots of insight, tidbits, and even hints of future changes and content. Me, I'm pretty excited to hear about the inventory fixes, and vindicated to hear them admit that melee have it harder in most raid encounters.

If that news isn't your favorite, don't worry, there's a lot of news to go over from the past 7 days. You're sure to find something you like. Downtime today starts at 5 a.m. Pacific time and is slated to last 6 hours, so you have time to catch up. Read on for the latest updates.

Hot news and features

  • Blizzard has released a screenshot that teases at a new hippogryph mount.
  • Hearthstone's big beta patch is live. Everyone's cards and decks have been reset, but all cards gained from now on will transfer to the live game.
