News Roundup: Heartbleed Account Security, Azeroth Choppers, Significant Tweets

Heartbleed Account Security
Blizzard has released an official statement on the Heartbleed bug. The long and short of it is that Battle.net was not compromised, but if you use the same password for Battle.net as you do for other sites, you should change it. As a rule, it's best to use unique passwords for your different accounts.
Many news sites are reporting a vulnerability (dubbed the Heartbleed bug) discovered in OpenSSL, an encryption technology used by a majority of websites and online services—including banks, email providers, and social media sites—to protect sensitive data as it’s transmitted from users to web services.
We want to emphasize that Battle.net’s encryption was not affected by this vulnerability. However, if you use the same password on Battle.net that you use elsewhere, your Battle.net account could be at risk if those sites were affected by this bug.
If the above situation applies to you, we recommend changing your Battle.net password to a new, unique password. As always, we recommend that you maintain separate login credentials for each online service you use. Using the same email or password across multiple ser
Blizzard Launches Azeroth Choppers
2014/04/10 at 2:52 PM
This video was just uploaded to the World of Warcraft YouTube account, and appears to relate to the popular American Choppers TV series.
Players will vote to see which bike gets made into a World of Warcraft mount, meaning, presumably, that only one faction gets a new mount as a result of the show. There is also an official

Hit the break for the full information on the show from the site.
How to get the most out of Wowhead's Warlords of Draenor Talent Calculator
2014/04/10 at 2:44 PM
Wowhead has updated the
Warlords of Draenor Talent Calculator
, to include glyphs as well as all the updated spec-specifc abilities and Draenor Perks. But maybe you're wondering how to use it? How do you see all these new features?
The main body of the calculator, which we can see to the right, should be pretty familiar. It works exactly like the in-game one does, only it's been updated for Warlords. You'll notice some differences among the lower level talents as well as the new level 100 talents. What's more, the tooltips have been updated to only reflect your selected spec's version of the talent.
A great example is
, a new level 90 Monk talent. If you mouse over it with any of the three specs selected, the tooltip will update to show the appropriate version of the talent. You can select your spec at the bottom of the talent calculator on the left-hand side.
Clicking any of the Glyph slots you see to the right of the main calculator will open up a list of glyphs. Select from the list,

Female Draenei Model

Following in quick succession from the
