Leukemia and Lymphoma Society Fundraiser for WoW Players
2010/02/26 at 10:00 PM
About a week ago I got a letter that was very affecting. It almost got lost in the inbox shuffle, but fortunately I caught it only a few days late, because I found it really affecting.
It warms my heart to see gamers coming out to do something really good for society, and considering the way mainstream media only seems to notice when a gamer shoots up a school, it's more important than ever that we work together to get the word out.
Here's the message:
My name is a Maria, a SF Bay Area geek and a very avid gamer. From the age of 7 when my Dad got me into gaming and bought me an NES Action Set/Bundle, I’ve been hooked. Aside from the typical console gaming and having a day job, I am still very active playing PC games especially within World of Warcraft. I was recruited into the guild Conquest on Kilrogg (US) and have since then learned how to split group mobs and teleport through walls. :P
Anyway, the reason I’m writing is because I’m reaching out in hopes that you could help me promote a little fundraising for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. I’m running a triathlon this year whic

So in a lot of the Blizzard interviews and editorials and
, I've been noticing a similar theme cropping up, and it seems to have informed Blizzard's game design philosophy a great deal. It goes something like this:
People go where the gear is.
Blizzard, it seems, has finally pegged us players for the greedy bastards we are. So what does this mean?

3.3.3 PTR Patch Notes Updated!
2010/02/24 at 3:40 PM
Blizzard is already updating the Public Test Realms with a fresh new build, including some very interesting changes to the Dungeon Finder tool and Holiday bosses.
In addition, Blizzard has also included a small number of class changes and change that I know pet collectors everywhere will love -
(the Engineering-required non-combat pets) are no longer Bind-on-Pickup! Now our fellow engineers (or skilled alts) can make these lovable little explosives for any non-Engineer's collection!
Blizzard have also completely revised the way Holiday bosses (such as
) are handled. Players will now be required to use the Dungeon Finder to queue up for these special event bosses via an NPC dialog option. Upon defeating the boss, players will each receive a single loot cache containing a rare, "special" seasonal item. Players will be able to kill the boss for his other drops as many times as they'd like, but can only receive one of these seasonal goodie bags per day. Looks like the days of endlessly farming these seasonal bosses for hours on end trying to get their rarest drops (like a
