2011/03/25 at 1:27 PM
There are a lot of new items we've pulled up from this patch, way too many to tack onto
the previous post about spell changes
. This time around, the theme seems to be new vanity items and new epics now on certain rare mobs as well as achievements.
See the full list of latest additions by clicking here!
Notable finds include:
We were told that was getting a new loot table a while back: "Loot from the creatures Garr, Julak-Doom, Mobus, and Poseidus has been adjusted to be commensurate to their rarity and invested effort." Well, there's some proof it's happening! is back and there is a new spell datamined:
Not to be outdone, it looks like those other rares are now getting epic drops as well: and more below!

Patch 4.1 - Rise of the Zandalari Official Preview
2011/03/25 at 12:26 PM
Blizzard hit us today with the official content preview for Patch 4.1: Rise of the Zandalari. It's a well-written summary of the threats adventurers will be facing soon and explains what role Vol'jin will be playing and the numerous threats that Stranglethorn contains. It also shows us some of the new vanity drops we'll be seeing.
In years past, the Zandalar tribe, encompassing the wise and scholarly progenitors of the trolls, heroically assisted the Horde and the Alliance with thwarting the nefarious activities of their brethren in Zul'Gurub and Zul'Drak. Yet the chaos unleashed by the recent Cataclysm has reshaped the Zandalari's philosophy about the world and the dwindling remnants of their race. Led by a mysterious prophet known only as Zul, the Zandalari have issued a call to Azeroth's embattled troll populations: unite into a single mighty empire and save their race from extinction.
Thus far, the Gurubashi and Amani trolls have answered the summons and received aid from the Zandalari, allowing them to rebuild their respective capitals in Zul'Gurub and Zul'Aman. Not all trolls, however, have so eagerly adopted the Zandala
Latest Cataclysm Hotfixes (March 17 - 24)
2011/03/24 at 8:59 PM
Some more hotfixes went just went live today, though nothing as groundbreaking as
the last batch
. It seems some bugs were fixed and a possible exploit was also fixed. Honestly, you'd think that with the sordid history of NPCs and their spells being stolen by players for other encounters, their buffs disappearing when players zone out would be common sense by now. Well, maybe next time!

I'm sure a bunch of you have played Spore at some point in the past, or at the very least, seen videos/previews of it. Well, that same company has thrown down their own DotA/Diablo clone... or did they?

Guild Transfer Option Coming Soon
2011/03/23 at 11:43 AM
Transferring servers as a guild has always been needlessly hard. Your guild bank usually has too much gold to bring over and your guild ranks are disrupted when reformed--and with the guild reputation system that's now in place, it's become an even bigger nightmare. It seems that Blizzard finally intends to do something about this, as today they've announced that there is going to be a guild relocation and renaming feature coming sometime in the future to World of Warcraft.
If nothing else, this should provide some more incentive to take use of free server transfers that are offered time to time. And hey, who hasn't dreamed of renaming their guild before?
We want to give everyone an early heads-up regarding our plan to implement a guild relocation service for World of Warcraft. The idea is for a guild leader to be able to transfer a guild to another realm. The guild structure remains intact, including the guild leader, guild bank, ranks, and guild name (depending on availability).
Guild members who decide to relocate with their guild may initiate their own paid character transfer. Upon a successful transfer they will automatically be par

The Weekly Marmot - Gear vs Skill
2011/03/22 at 5:57 PM
This week I take a stab at the ever-popular Gear vs Skill debate. Which is more important? Can an undergeared player really outperform others just by the virtue of their own ability? Or is WoW really just a game of numbers, and whoever has the bigger ones wins?

Blizzard's Second Q+A Answered, UI Selected for Next Topic
2011/03/22 at 1:32 PM
Blizzard just posted their next set of answers to the
their second global Q+A session they held through the forums
recently. It's mostly a mixture of questions about balance, how PvP has changed from its earlier iterations, and what Blizzard is doing to address PvP in the future. Somehow there managed to not be that much complaining, all things considered!
Of course, there will be more of these sessions coming up in the near future. The topic of user interfaces is slated to be tackled next; starting at 4PM PDT today, Blizzard will field questions from NA players while
they are currently already taking
ones from EU players. We'll edit this post with a link when it goes alive.
Some of the topics of the questions they were asked include:
Death Match Battlegrounds
Will a PvP Guild Ever Progress the Same as a PvE Guild?
The Value of CC in Cataclysm PvP
Hybrid Classes and Their Effectiveness
Other ZAM Sites
Final Fantasy XI
