Create YOUR Own Wowhead Title!
2009/11/05 at 1:34 PM
That's right, folks, you saw it correct! You now get a chance to design your own title to be added to our pool of randomly generated witticisms you get to see every time you load the homepage!
You have asked for it, and we are giving it to you. There have been several threads on the forums, all of which asked us (nicely, of course) to add new sayings to our pool. We have read them all, but until recently time was just never enough to bother with something so small.
Well, we are as busy as ever, but this request of yours we can fulfill!
This is not a contest
, and there are no rewards beyond bragging rights. But think about how cool your friends will think you are when you go to them and say
"See that thing up there just after where it says "Wowhead: ..."? That's right, I gave them that idea!"
You would become a superstar in matter of seconds!

3.3 Patch Notes Updated! (Build 10747)
2009/11/03 at 5:56 PM
So the latest PTR build has some very interesting changes to the
, including one I've been waiting for for a long time—it appears that meeting stones no longer have a maximum level requirement. Anyone above level 15 can be summoned by any meeting stone. It also appears that 71-80 battlegrounds now reward a small number of arena points. Veeeeery interesting...
Looks like they've adjusted that line in the patch notes. It now says "All level 71-80 Battleground daily quests will now award 25 Arena points in addition to their current rewards."

China Gives WoW China Non-Approval
2009/11/02 at 3:40 PM
Just as Chinese players expected to finally get Wrath of the Lich King later this month, China's GAPP has given NetEase (China's World of Warcraft operator) its non-approval which means NetEase needs to stop taking in subscriptions and new sign-ups. This is strange as the content was already approved while being run by the former operator The9, which may (or may not?) mean this will be overturned.
Also, this just may have been a problem for Netease as they have been collecting subscription fees for quite some time now, which they weren't supposed to be doing without official GAPP approval. What makes this even stranger is that NetEase hasn't had any communication with the GAPP other than the official press release on the GAPP website.
G4 Interviews Blizzard Team for WoW 5-Year Anniversary Retrospective
2009/11/02 at 2:28 PM
World of Warcraft turns five years old on November 23, 2009, and G4 has kicked off the celebration a little early with a series of
with some big names at Blizzard.
X-Play host Morgan Webb sat down with Game Director
, Lead World Designer
and former Game Director
Jeffrey "Tigole" Kaplan
to look back at the history of WoW from day one.
The combined videos total more than 35 minutes in length, so there's a lot to digest in the retrospective. There's nothing particularly noteworthy mentioned in the interviews, but they're certainly worth viewing for fans who are interested in hearing Chilton, Afrasiabi and Kaplan reminisce about WoW's history and explain their duties at Blizzard.
For those of you who don't know, Kaplan left the WoW team to work on Blizzard's next big MMO project, which he's "super excited about" but couldn't discuss in det
