News Round Up: Account-Wide Mounts, Beta Raid Preview, No Level 90 Premades
2012/06/27 at 12:19 PM
In today's news round up, Blizzard confirmed that UI addons will be enabled in the next beta build, and that many expensive and multi-seat mounts like
Reins of the Traveler's Tundra Mammoth
will be account-wide in Mists of Pandaria--great news for players that purchased mounts and then switched mains! We also have some new posts from Ghostcrawler from the Beta Class Balance Analysis thread, this time on Moonkins, Hunters, and Ignite-like mechanics, as well as a preview of the new TCG set.
In addition, we have a preview of the Mogu'Shan Vaults raid testing from June 25th, as well as the Encounter Journal. If you're interested in trying out these raids, you'll have to level up to 90 yourself instead of waiting for premades--Blizzard stated yesterday that they won't be available anytime soon. There are two more bosses scheduled for testing today as well.
On June 25th, both

The Spirit Kings
were open for testing in

Other minor vanity glyphs include mages getting pets to match their specs, hunters shooting fireworks, and shaman turning into spectral wolves.

News Round Up: Purchasable Raid Epics on the Black Market Auction House
2012/06/19 at 6:28 PM
The Black Market Auction House was a hot topic today for blue posters--after beta players noticed that raid-quality epics will be occasionally up for sale in addition to rare/removed mounts and pets. Since some wealthy players pay guilds for mounts/titles already, some players think this isn't a big deal, but others think it changes the character of the game. One of these heroic items is up for sale currently, so we added a screenshot on beta:
In other news, Ghostcrawler recently addressed Death Knights, Hunters, Rogues, and Paladins on beta. The new TCG deck was released and there's also a feature on PrintWarcraft's custom T-shirts!
Black Market Auction House
No one should count on this even being close to a viable option for gearing up a character. If you can raise that kind of gold in the game, you're going to have much better success paying your way into raids for gear than hoping the right items appear for you in the black market AH (which doesn't include set pieces), hoping you can afford to outbid everyone else on your realm, and hoping you're the
