Azeroth, Revisited: Scarlet Monastery in Cataclysm
2010/08/11 at 7:03 PM
With the upcoming
expansion now going through its beta phase, I thought now would be a perfect time to take a look at some of the classic dungeons that everyone loves and see how they will be changing.
The first dungeon we're taking a look at is . While technically only one instance, it has been split up into four wings: Graveyard, Library, Armory, and Cathedral. The four wings have seen no physical changes, but each has received a nice makeover in mob and quest locations.
Note: This is from a Horde perspective, because that's what character I had available. The Alliance version is slightly different.

Tired of City of Heroes Talk? Good, the BFF Report Has Some Words..
2010/08/11 at 5:38 PM
That's right, besides my outstanding submission to the
City of Heroes Character Creation Contest
, I got to spend the last couple of weeks resurrecting awesome cartoon superheroes and wearing leotards. It's been quite the experience, to be honest... revealing could be a better word for it. I really was pushing this report down to the wire though, within minutes of wrapping up the shoot, beta came to an end. Sadly, this also means no one will ever get to see my amazing japaneserobocop hero. :(

Cataclysm Beta: New Macintosh Repair Tool
2010/08/09 at 3:20 PM
With the new
released last week in the Cataclysm beta, Blizzard has also apparently decided to sneak in something that has been missing from the Macintosh client for quite some time.
works exactly like the Windows version, in that it will check your MPQ files against the current patch file and restores any that are corrupt. Now instead of reinstalling the game or restoring it from backup, Macintosh users will have an easy way to restore their World of Warcraft installation!
for the heads up on this!

Astute visitors have probably noticed that the site hasn't been operating as well as it normally does today. The reason for that is
we've migrated the site to a new set of web servers with upgraded hardware
. We're in the process of tweaking things to get everything working optimally again. In the meantime, please pardon our digital dust. :)

All I have to say is, the Goblin starting experience was clearly directed by Michael Bay.
Oh, and balls.
Blizzard Cataclysm Preview: Southern Barrens
2010/08/05 at 12:27 PM
Blizzard has just posted an interesting zone preview on their European forums, spotlighting one of the most drastically changed classic zones in World of Warcraft -
! In this brief Q+A, Blizzard details their epic redesign of the Horde's beloved Barrens into two different zones, featuring Southern Barrens as a new 30-35 Alliance and Horde leveling zone!
Initially, as a Horde player, I didn't really see any reason I should care that Alliance have wrecked Camp Taurajo, as I never thought of it as being critical in any way. It basically served as nothing more than a reminder that, back in my day, we didn't have that flight path in the Barrens and we had to walk fifteen miles down the Gold Road to look for
. However, once I got out there and actually saw what was done to Camp Taurajo, I'll admit it fueled that good ol' fashioned feeling of bloodthirsty rivalry that hasn't been present in quite some time since we've all grown so accustomed to rubbing shoulders and inspecting each ot
Reforging Now Available in Cataclysm Beta
2010/08/05 at 12:51 AM
, which we mentioned two weeks ago
, is finally active in the beta. It is a rather simple process—Alliance side you will need to visit in Stormwind near the Stockades, ask a guard for the nearest Thaumaturge. The Horde equivalent is in Orgrimmar's Cleft of Shadows. When you speak to the NPC, it asks you to drag and drop the item you want reforged. After dropping the item in the slot it asks which stat you would like to reduce and what you would like to increase.
An example (which is in the screenshots) is taking 32 Haste Rating from , and adding 32 Mastery Rating to it. After clicking
, it will make the changes—and bringing any reforged item back and clicking restore will turn the item back to its original form. As this example is a Tier piece which cannot be vendored it only costs 1 gold while any other pieces will cost their vendor price.

2010/08/04 at 11:10 PM
As all Cataclysm Beta participants are expected to happily redownload and reinstall the client using the
new-and-improved (or so they say!) Launcher
, my joyous adventures taking screenshots for our
