News Round Up: Class Beta Feedback, PvP Gear, Leaders of Azeroth
2012/05/07 at 6:21 PM
Today's news round up has a ton of blue posts. First off, there's a lot of detailed beta feedback for
s, including discussions about Level 90 Druid talents and Rapture for priests. There's also discussion about PvP gear in Mists,
Mass Spell Reflection
nerfs, Dungeon bugs on beta, and the recent completion of the Leaders of Azeroth short story series. Click the cut to see all the posts!
PvP Gear in Mists
You will have less resilience on your gear coming into beta. However, you will also have some base resilience and that base should offset the PvP power that everyone is getting. The net result should be that you take about the same damage you do today in a PvP setting, but will take less damage from someone not wearing PvP gear.
Currently on your beta build, I believe the ratio of power to resilience is off. You should have more resilience and less power than you do.
It is entirely possible that some new talents or spell changes will result in too much burst damage in isolated cases, but when giving feedback, it's useful for us if you distinguish between those and survivabili

Mists of Pandaria Zone Preview: Krasarang Wilds and The Veiled Stair
2012/05/02 at 12:18 PM
is a coastal jungle with tranquil beaches and dense rainforests. It used to be the center of the sinister Mogu Empire, but now it houses the sacred Temple of the Red Crane, revered as a place of wisdom.
Originally intended to be part of
Valley of the Four Winds
, the decision was recently made to turn this area into a full-fledged zone. While some of the quests do take players back into Valley, Krasarang has a distinctive look and unique quest sequences involving the spirituality of the Red Crane and destructive presence of the Sha. There are plans to develop the coastal area further in 5.1 with Alliance and Horde fortresses, and it is also currently home to

There are also

Children's Week (April 29th - May 5th) Guide
2012/04/28 at 6:15 PM
is a week in which we brave a challenge greater than any undead monstrosity and a task more daunting than saving the world. We must become parents for all those orphans throughout Azeroth and make sure they are happy. We can't tank a child's fears, we can't heal its memories of pain, nor can we DPS the sorrow out of them. So equip your toys, make a mage conjure a candy table, fill your quiver with joy, load your gun with something colorful, and venture into the World of Parenting!

Due to the advent of Cataclysm,
was changed last year to have two new pets and redone locations for the initial tier of quests.
It's also worth noting that in Mists of Pandaria, pets will be accountwide! This means you should get extra pets on your alts that you do not have so you can trade them to your main when the expansion hits.
If you already have all the pets, be sure to pick up

New Recruit-A-Friend Mount Coming
2012/04/26 at 2:38 PM
X-53 Touring Rocket
will soon be a collector's item! Within the next few weeks, a third RAF mount will be introduced and the current one retired from Azeroth.
The mount will likely be
Heart of the Nightwing
--apparently it was added to both the PTR and the MoP beta, so it will be the RAF mount! (My bad for earlier saying I didn't know.)
you can always post in the Wowhead RAF friend if you're looking to recruit someone before the rocket is removed
. Happy leveling!
Heads up! The current Recruit-A-Friend reward mount, the experimental X-53 Touring Rocket, will soon be cycled out of the RAF program. If you’ve always wanted a Touring Rocket, but haven’t snagged one yet,
this is your last chance to get one by bringing a friend to World of Warcraft
While we don’t have an official launch date to reveal for the new Recruit-A-Friend mount, we wanted to give you an early heads up that the changeover will be happening “soon” (TM). You have a few weeks to claim the X-53 Touring Rocket before it goes away.
Mists of Pandaria Beta: New Maps, Icons, NPCs, Quests, and More
2012/04/25 at 7:11 PM
We had a huge patch
last night and there's a lot more information to cover!
First off, in the biggest news,
achievements will be account bound
. Blizzard had hinted they really wanted to do this, but didn't know if they'd have the time. They are now mostly account bound!
Secondly, we datamined more
, and icons. We also previewed the new features in the Pet Battle system, as well as general changes such as spellbook improvements and new female Pandaren fur markings.
Do you want to be the best, that no one ever was?

in Goldshire, you will be able to both capture wild pets and battle them. Both types will be tracked on your minimap. The screenshots below show a pet battle we initiated with a

Blizzard Launches Battle.net Item Restoration System
2012/04/25 at 4:39 PM
Back in the day, getting an item restored was a big deal. It took forever and it was a pretty complex process. Everyone had rumors about how many items you could petition for in a character's lifetime and everyone had different stories involving the kindness of Blizzard's GMs.
Well, that's officially a thing of the past now! Blizzard has launched an automated item restoration process. Every thirty days, you can have an item restored via this process. Pretty cool!
Starting today, players can access a new system that will allow players to recover World of Warcraft items that they may have sold, destroyed or disenchanted:
Battle.net Item Restoration
With this new self-service option the recovery of an item or items that were recently deleted or sold to a vendor can be restored to a character immediately when using the ticket submission system on our support site. For any items that were accidentally disenchanted the same method can be used to request a review by Customer Support for restoration.
This restoration option may only be used once every 30 days on active Wo
