We will be releasing a patch on Wednesday October, 10 beginning at 8:30 a.m. PDT to resolve an issue that could sometimes prevent players from interacting correctly with in-game objects.
As the patch is relatively small, patching time should be minimal. See you in Pandari

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.

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 email@example.com. We apologize for the inconvenience some of you experienced as a result of this and appreciate your understanding.
