Ask Blizzard Anything: Blizzard's Reddit Q&A
2012/09/11 at 7:28 PM
Blizzard is following the trend of many gaming companies tonight by taking to Reddit to do their interaction with the community! Tonight Blizzard developers and community team members are going to be hosting a Q&A session through the popular website.
The Q&A is now done and we feel like this was a tremendous one. Blizzard really outdid themselves with transparency, talking extensively about issues they'd previously avoided. The PvE section is especially illuminating. Thanks Blizzard!
Given what Sylvanas and the Forsaken have been up to regarding the Plague, isn't it inevitable that her desire to "procreate" the undead will bring the Forsaken into direct conflict with all the living factions?
Well, first she'd have to run out of corpses, so from that perspective, the war is REALLY helping the Forsaken out... ;)
This is a good question, because the nature of the Forsaken makes them a really unstable ally. That leads to some great stories. At the moment, Sylvanas is fort
Patch 5.0.5 Notes, Jade Forest Preview
2012/09/11 at 12:24 PM
Today's a busy day for Blizzard! They're having a WoW Developer Reddit AMA at 5:30 PM PDT today, and they also just posted Patch 5.0.5 notes (mainly tooltip and bug fixes) and a preview of The Jade Forest, including screenshots and music samples!
It’s been two weeks since <a href="
class="bml-link-url2">patch 5.0.4</a> was released and, with only two weeks to go until Mists of Pandaria takes the world by storm, we feel that this is the perfect time to give you access to the World of Warcraft development team. Tomorrow, Tuesday, September 11 beginning at 5:30 p.m. PDT, we’ll be conducting a live developer “Ask Me Anything” (AMA) on <a href="
class="bml-link-url2">/r/WoW</a>. I’ll be on-hand to host the chat and will have Lead Systems Designer Greg Street, Lead Quest Designer Dave Kosak, Lead Encounter Designer Ion Hazzikostas, and Game Director Tom Chilton available to field your questions. <br/><br/>We’ll spend at least an hour working to answer everything possible.
Mists of Pandaria Rare Spawns: Lost and Found Preview
2012/09/11 at 11:06 AM
We covered the
rare spawns of Pandaria
a few weeks ago, and thought it was cool how they dropped a bunch of unique vanity items like
Mr. Smite's Brass Compass
. We thought Blizzard really outdid themselves by returning to some of the detailed insanity of vanilla with quirky rare spawns.
Well, there's more.
Lost and Found
Exploration achievement series, you'll loot rare items that are just
Pandaria--pulling them out of trees, opening boxes, exploring caves. It's like hunting for a rare spawns' loot, except the NPC step has been cut out! As for what you'll find:
BoA rare weapons--some with unique models for transmog.
Fun recipes including
Four Senses Brew
that gives the illusion that your character is wearing a red
Cursed Vision of Sargeras
Vendor trash like
Ancient Pandaren Woodcutter
with joking flavor text.
Useful profession perks like
Ancient Pandaren Fishing Lure
BoP rares, usually looted from a chest.
Items are still being added--there were several in the most recent patch--so right now not every object listed

2012/09/06 at 12:59 PM
We continue our Mists of Pandaria class previews with a look at

Q&A with Blizzard's Creative Development Team
2012/09/05 at 1:30 PM
We're used to hearing answers about class balance in beta from Blizzard developers, but today we have some details about WoW's lore moving forward from the Creative Development team!
The heroes of Azeroth have faced down many foes; blazing Elemental Lords freed from titanic prisons, mighty demons from beyond the stars, armies of shambling corpses and even eldritch gods who defy explanation. And yet, there exist only a chosen few equipped to deal with the powerful beast that is . . . Ask CDev. Through the heroic efforts of our brave loremasters here at CDev Publishing, we proudly present to you the answers to Ask CDev #3! We even managed to get them out before our stated deadline of “when the Andromeda galaxy collides with our own.”<br/><br/><strong><span class="underline">Here, there be dragons and magical beasts</span></strong><br/><br/><strong>Q:</strong> Wrathion constantly claims that he is the last black dragon, but what of Sabellian and the other black dragons in Outland (and even the Netherwing)?
