5.4.2 PTR Patch Notes
2013/12/03 at 5:08 PM
We've gotten a few small PTR builds this past month, and finally got official patch notes for 5.4.2 today. It's good to have a refresher on the cool cross-realm raid browser and improved mailing system coming soon, and there's the new tidbit that you can place raid markers while dead now.
Karazhan 2: Eclectic Boogaloo

December 2nd Hotfixes, Blizzard Sale Extended, WoD Scaling Tweets
2013/12/03 at 11:02 AM
Last night, there was only one hotfix but it was a big one--the Celestial world bosses got a significant health nerf if you're in a small group. This should also greatly help players who need to kill all four for
The Emperor's Way
and were frustrated that they couldn't get a decent-sized group together. The larger the group is, the more their health will increase.
December 2nd Hotfixes
The Celestials (
) have their health reduced to 25% of original health. If more than 10 players from the same faction are engaged with the Celestial, their health will scale up. The health increase will cap at 100% of their original health with 40 players.

Official Announcement: Ghostcrawler Leaving Blizzard
2013/11/27 at 2:20 PM
You know that part at the end of raid night when the final boss is dead and you’re done handing out loot and everyone kind of goes their separate ways? Yeah, this is one of those times.
We just came off of a great BlizzCon. We had so many different games to talk about, and we were thrilled at the reception of Warlords of Draenor. It was great to meet or reconnect with so many of you. I love BlizzCon dearly, which makes it so hard to tell you that this will be my last one, or at least my last one up on stage. An opportunity has come my way, and I have made the very tough decision to move on from Blizzard.
I wanted to thank all of you for being a part of this grand quest. I have said a hundred times that having passionate gamers, including the angry ones, is a far better place to be than having a community that doesn’t care. You all care. Like us, you want the game to be the best that it can be. So I ask you to keep on providing your feedback. I promise (and I rarely promise!) that the developers care very much about what you have to say.
I’ll be out there, and I can’t imagine it will be that hard to find me.

The PTR store now has categories for Mounts, Pets, and Consumables, as well as a Featured Item page. The
most recent Blizzard Store items

Gear Changes in Warlords of Draenor
2013/11/26 at 12:44 PM
Blizzard posted a lengthy blog covering all the changes to gear in Warlords of Draenor--broken down into two subcategories, Armor and Non Armor. Click the cut for the full blog, or check out our summary below:
Your gear for armor slots (helms, shoulders, etc) changes primary stats and set bonuses based on your spec. There is no "strength plate" or "intellect plate"--simply plate that changes based on your role. Gear for these primary armor slots will always contain Stamina and Armor, as well as either Agility/Intellect/Strength based on your spec.
Secondary stats for armor will remain unchanged when switching between specs (crit, mastery, haste). Hit, expertise, dodge, and parry are removed completely, and spirit and bonus armor no longer appear on armor pieces.
New secondary stats, in addition to crit, mastery, haste: Amplify, Multistrike, and Readiness.
