StarCraft II's Battle.net Preview
2010/02/09 at 5:39 PM
Blizzard just launched a new page on their StarCraft II website that contains a preview of the new
integrated service for all Blizzard games, including World of Warcraft.
In this preview you will find some of the new features and developmental screenshots of the new service—which includes competitive arenas, cross-connectivity between Blizzard games and a way to post mods and community created content. There is also a video interview with Greg Canessa, Project Director for Battle.net, where he covers all of this and more.
As this pertains to World of Warcraft players as we will most likely see most of the previewed features integrated into the game in future content patches.
I am personally very excited about this, how about you?
No More Limited Attempts in Icecrown Normal Modes
2010/02/08 at 9:02 PM
Blizzard has decided that they needed to change up the limited attempts system for
Normal mode wipes on
The Lich King (Icecrown)
will no longer
count towards the limited attempts. The limited attempts are still in effect for Heroic mode versions of the encounters.
After each region's maintenance this week, raids will no longer lose attempts on wipes in Normal mode for Professor Putricide, Blood-Queen Lana'thel, Sindragosa, and the Lich King. There will still be limited attempts in Heroic mode.
We will continue to monitor developments in Icecrown Citadel in the future, especially since the Heroic difficulty has been unlocked by a significant number of raids.
Changes to Lich King Weapon Drops
2010/02/08 at 5:57 PM
Blizzard recently decided the weapon drops from
The Lich King (Icecrown)
needed to be re-optimized in order to measure up to the quality you would expect from The Lich King. Both the heroic and normal versions will have traded certain stats for others—for example,
Royal Scepter of Terenas II
is having its MP5 replaced with haste rating (yay!).
The blue post with the full list of changes follows:
After reviewing several items available from the Lich King encounter, we've decided to re-optimise certain weapons that didn't meet with our expectations and the quality that the Lich King expects. The weapons listed below, both their Normal and Heroic versions, will now better represent their respective roles and present more intriguing options to players.
Archus, Greatstaff of Antonidas
: Critical Strike replaced with Haste rating
Fal'inrush, Defender of Quel'thalas
: Haste rating replaced with Armor Penetration
Heaven's Fall, Kryss of a Thousand Lies
: Armor Penetration replaced with Haste rating
Royal Scepter of Terenas II
: MP5 replaced with Haste rating
Stormfury, Black Blade of the Betrayer
: Armor Penetration replaced with Expertise rating

Icecrown Citadel Weeklies Now Available
2010/02/03 at 3:22 AM
So I know I've been spamming you with blogs today, but I couldn't let this one go by: The
for Icecrown Citadel are now available!
If you're looking to find them all in one convenient list, you can just use the
Sack of Frosty Treasures
item page! Scroll down to the
section to see the complete list of quests. :)
For those of you who are wondering, the raid weeklies don't have a centralized NPC who gives them. The NPCs who give the quest actually spawn inside the raid instance itself. Only one NPC will spawn, and it's a different spawn for each quest. It's my understanding that they're pretty hard to miss, though, so you shouldn't have any trouble finding yours. :)
