Wowhead Reddit AMA, October 9th
2012/10/09 at 9:38 AM
Curious what the people are like who make Wowhead run? Ever wanted to ask us something but felt it seemed off-topic in a blog's comments? With Mists of Pandaria two weeks old and everyone using Wowhead for help, we thought it would be a great time for you to get to know the people behind the site more!
Ashelia and I will be doing an AMA at 10 a.m. PDT over at /r/WoW.
We'll link the thread here when it goes live--be sure to up-vote any questions you'd really like us to answer! Looking forward to seeing your questions.
Edit: it's live!
Vengeance Hotfix and Starlight Ink Trades
2012/10/08 at 3:10 PM
A hotfix will be applied to adjust how Vengeance stacks for tanks of all classes:
Vengeance should now ramp up more quickly. Avoidance will now grant Vengeance based on the average damage of the avoided NPC auto-attack, instead of just refreshing existing Vengeance. This does not apply to enemy special attacks.
This will be noted in the next hotfix update, but we wanted to let you know immediately, as this change will be applied sometime today.
Beginning after the maintenance on Tuesday, October 9, ink traders will be converting from accepting Blackfallow Ink to accepting Ink of Dreams and Starlight Ink will become available for purchase. If you’re still holding on to your Blackfallow Ink, your time to trade it in is running short.
Battlegrounds Preview: Temple of Kotmogu and Silvershard Mines
2012/10/08 at 11:27 AM
With the new PvP season underway this week, we thought it would be a good time to highlight the two new battlegrounds:
Temple of Kotmogu
. They're both level 90 battlegrounds for 10 players, with interesting twists on familiar battlegrounds like Arathi Basin and Warsong Gulch.
Check out our list of PvP gear you can purchase
Temple of Kotmogu
During the lost days of ancient Pandaria, the ruling mogu built temples not unlike themselves – immense in size, vast in scope, and steeped in forces as old as the ground beneath their feet. Stony statues of the mogu still glare down from their long-vacant temples, and echoes of their supremacy persist to the present day. Inside the autumnal Temple of Kotmogu, a vicious melee has erupted over artifacts the mogu left behind: treasures older than the bloodlines of human kings and the clans of orcs, orbs of power that have bathed in the energies of Pandaria for ages. Will they bring the might of the mogu to the Horde or Alliance?

City Exploit Hotfixed
2012/10/07 at 5:13 PM
Earlier today, certain realms were affected by an in-game exploit, resulting in the deaths of player characters and non-player characters in some of the major cities. This exploit has already been hotfixed, so it should not be repeatable. It's safe to continue playing and adventuring in major cities and elsewhere in Azeroth.
As with any exploit, we are taking this disruptive action very seriously and conducting a thorough investigation. If you have information relating to this incident, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. We apologize for the inconvenience some of you experienced as a result of this and appreciate your understanding.
Pet Battles: Wild Battle Pets by Zone
2012/10/07 at 11:10 AM
Capturing wild battle pets is a new way to obtain companion pets in Mists of Pandaria, and it is one of the primary ways of acquiring pets for your pet battle team.
Wild battle pets can be tracked on your minimap: you can have your team fight them for experience, or capture one at low health to add it to your collection. Pet families have strengths and weaknesses against other types, so choose your opponents wisely. There are different versions of each pet--some with more stats than others--so you could get lucky and end up capturing a really strong version! There's also many
achievements for capturing wild battle pets
We've made tables below of all the wild battle pets, organized by continent and color-coded by type. With this chart, you can see what pets are unique to various zones, and also which pet types are pretty scarce--Dragonkin and Mechanical especially. All the data was taken from our
interactive battle pet map
visual battle pet database
, so be sure to check them out for more information!

Patch 5.1 PTR Coming Soon
2012/10/05 at 11:04 AM
While Mists of Pandaria already comes packed full of some of the most diverse and expansive World of Warcraft content to date, we’re staying true to our goal of delivering new content faster. With that in mind, we’re pleased to share that the first major Mists of Pandaria content update, Patch 5.1, is well underway.
In fact, our plan is to release a build of patch 5.1 on the Public Test Realms soon so you can experience it for yourself! Initially, the PTR build won’t include all of the 5.1 patch content, but here’s a glimpse of the major features that are already in the pipeline.
Patch 5.1 Features
Pandaria and the War of Conquest
While members of the Horde and the Alliance have been busy exploring the exotic continent of Pandaria, Garrosh and Varian have been gathering their forces in preparation for the struggle to exert the influence of the Horde and the Alliance over these long-lost lands. Players who have quested through Pandaria will see forces of both factions arrive in force on the shores of the unspoiled continent, bringing the tensions between the Horde and the Alliance in

Patch 5.0.5 Hotfixes: October 2nd
2012/10/02 at 8:22 PM
Players no longer require Honored reputation with Mists of Pandaria factions to purchase gear with Justice Points.
The reputation requirement to purchase certain pieces of Mists of Pandaria Valor Point gear have been reduced from Revered to Honored. These include:
- neck items
The August Celestials
The item level of Mists of Pandaria gear that is purchased with Justice Points has been raised from 450 to 458.
The item level of Mists of Pandaria gear that is purchased with Honor Points has been lowered from 464 to 458. As a result, the quality color of these items has been changed from Epic to Rare. However, the PvP Power and PvP resilience of these items has been increased significantly so these items retain their previous degree of effectiveness in PvP.
Mists of Pandaria PvP item vendors were tired of getting the dook kicked out of them. Their health has been increased significantly.

Justice and Honor Gear ilvl Changes
2012/10/02 at 3:53 PM
Many players felt that the new
PvP rewards released today
were a bit overpowered, especially compared to Justice Point gear. The PvP gear had sockets while Justice Point rewards did not. In addition, the PvP gear had a much higher ilvl than the rewards you'd traditionally choose from Justice Points.
Blizzard released that the fastest way to gear up for PvE was to PvP, and changed the gear ilvls around in today's hotfix.
We’re working to adjust current Justice and Honor gear to better align with intended values. Currently it’s more lucrative to run Battelgrounds for ilvl 464 epics, and convert all Justice to Honor to gear up. While some crossover is fine, the most optimal way to gear for PvE doesn’t make sense to happen through PvP.<br /><br />This hotfix will ideally go out today, and once applied will change all Justice and Honor items (including those already purchased) in the following ways:<br /><br /><span class="underline">Justice Items</span><br /><ul>Current
