News Round Up: 4.3.2, Darkmoon Faire, and D3DB
2012/01/04 at 1:41 PM
Due to yesterday's downtime, we were a little slow on announcing our contest winners and getting the new PTR information out. However, we should make that up with some exciting news today that has to do with Sanctuary!
I have some awesome news that I've been holding in for a few weeks:
D3DB has joined the ZAM Network
! These guys were heavily inspired by Wowhead when they launched their database years ago and have become the best Diablo III resource around, so it's great to see it come full circle and get to team up with them in an official capacity. We'll be working closely with them as they are a fellow Blizzard fansite. (And it's Diablo III, I mean, do you know how awesome that is?)
On the WoW front, there were some difficulties this month with the Darkmoon Faire; dailies were not resetting, some monthly quests didn't either. Blizzard has patched it up, though, last night.

4.3 Preview: Chromatic Dragon Pet and Loot Rule Changes
2011/10/07 at 11:44 AM
We wanted to post a few models up that Alayton found for us--mostly the Chromatic Dragon pet, which I am betting is the reward for the guild legendary for tier 13, since there already was a Deathwing pet a while ago. There are also the Lunar New Year rewards we speculated one as well as the Scarab pet from the next TCG edition (not archaeology as we had hoped).
As for the Fel Hippogryph, he's actually from the TCG (thanks to reader Nathanyel for the tip).
New Loot Rules in 4.3
In response to concerns regarding how loot will be distributed in the Raid Finder system, we are making some changes to how loot rolls will work when using the Need Before Greed system in the Raid Finder. When using Raid Finder for the Dragon Soul raid instanc
4.3 Preview: End Time 5-man Coverage, Dungeon Set 3d Models, Dungeon Journal Entries, and More
2011/09/28 at 6:14 PM
Today's been a long day. Like, a really long day.
But I enlisted the help of Perculia and my guildmates; together we tackled the first 5-man End Time (the other two weren't open) for screenshots and videos. We've
also got their drops from the client uploaded on our PTR site
; modelviewer sets of all the new dungeon sets which all match each other, even if they don't have set bonuses; and the dungeon journal entries for every instance. There are a lot of placeholders for the DJ, though, so be warned!

4.3 Preview: Season 11 PvP Sets
2011/09/28 at 5:03 PM
We've datamined the season 11 arena sets and here they are for you to check out--some really gorgeous sets, especially the paladin set. Remember to click on the images to load our awesome modelviewer so you can preview the images for yourself and take your own screenshots if needed!
Patch 4.2: Ruthless Gladiator Season 10 PvP Sets Preview
2011/06/10 at 1:20 PM
With Season 10
as coming at the end of this month, we figured this was a great time to break the season 10 PvP sets out and show you how you'll look if you're a particularly
gladiator yourself. (In case you forgot, we previewed the weapons that go with these colorful sets back in March and you can see them
To help showcase the armor sets, we've put together a video showing each variation and we've also taken screenshots of each set along with links to our modelviewer. If you choose the modelviewer, make sure to view them in Java for higher particle effects--you can also set your own gender and race preview there so you aren't stuck at looking at either a female Blood Elf or a male Human!
Honestly, we think you're in for a bit of a surprise. While PvP sets aren't known for their beauty, some of these sets look pretty awesome and sometimes they look even better than their tier 12 counterparts.

Patch 4.2: 3D Models for Firelands' Weapons and Offhands
2011/06/07 at 8:19 AM
Back in the beginning of March,
we posted a large collection of 3D models
for weapons and offhands we had discovered through datamining. Of course, this was all before Firelands was pushed into the next patch; with that bit of news, our models got lost in the depths of the blog.
However, since we recently provided a
list of drops from Firelands
, this is a good time to check out what these items will look like in addition to knowing their stats. Although the jury's still out on the tier sets, personally we think these models are looking pretty awesome.
We have included screenshots of the models that weren't previously mentioned in our blogs.
Patch 4.2 - PTR Build 14133 - New Models for Nozdormu, Fire Raven God and More!
2011/05/19 at 4:51 PM
Last night's patch included a few interesting new 3D models after all! Most notably the fiery version of Anzu makes an appearance--
he was mentioned here
a while ago as one of the coveted vanity rewards, but there's still no word on where he drops.
In addition to this bad boy, the patch also included an amazing humanoid model for the bronze dragon Nozdormu (he shows up at some part of the
legendary staff quest chain
and the Thrall questline) and an amazing set of fiery shoulders upon one of Majordomo Staghelm's Druids of the Flame. These guys appear in the Alysrazor encounter and throughout Firelands as trash mobs. Not only that, but we've got an updated model for the new , a scorching Overfiend, and a poor guy having a very rough day. Be sure to click the screenshots and check 'em out in our awesome 3D model viewer!

Patch 4.2 - PTR Build 14107 - Achievements, Spell Changes, Items, and More
2011/05/13 at 5:22 PM
Another patch on the PTR just in time for Friday. There's tons of stuff, but the most important thing we have is that we think we've figured out the proc of from our spells in our database.
This is purely speculation and is subject to change, so take it with a grain of salt, but I wouldn't be surprised if we're right.
It looks like you gain an aura () and it duplicates your harmful spells sometimes: . Their damage appears as which is arcane damage.
Other notable finds
WoW's 7th anniversary might have a little more than just a vanity pet or a feat of strength: ! You will most likely be able to change the appearance of your tabard so you aren't stuck wearing the same old one for its benefits.
Pet collectors are going to be very happy with 4.2 it looks like. will introduce the return of from the TCG. There will also be which will reward a new pet: .
Achievement hunters should be happy, too: from achievements for Zul'Aman that should have existed ([achi
Druid Tier 12 Preview and Other 3D Models
2011/05/10 at 3:21 PM
We have a preview of Druid Tier 12 armor up as well as some more 3D models to share with you from the PTR. Remember to view it in our model viewer through the java option rather than flash if you want to see particle effects and details--this feature recently received an overhaul so they're looking even better than before.
For items, maps, icons and spell changes from this build that hit earlier today, you can

Patch 4.2: Tier 12 Armor Variations and 3D Models
2011/05/05 at 10:46 AM
We've datamined some recolors for tier 12 from the latest PTR 4.2 patch. There are no new tier sets to see except Warrior, but each tier that was already previewed has three shades of color (except Hunters, which have four). It's possible these could be the difference in color from non-heroic and heroic, 10 or 25 (like Ulduar's 8 and 8.5 was), or possibly even PvP models. An interesting comment a Wowhead poster presumed is that they could even be colored based on what talent tree you've specialized the majority of your points in--which would make a lot of sense, given the naming conventions on the PTR.
Anyway, we won't know until we get more information, but they're worth looking at. Some of them are certainly a lot less fiery and I hope they see the light of day.

Patch 4.2 - PTR Build 14002 - New Models
2011/05/04 at 8:48 PM
If you like models, you're in luck. We've got a ton of models for you to view from the PTR's latest patch. Remember to click on the thumbnails to expand and get them in full 3D--they look better and you'll be able to see the details clearer, like how the has pouches on his saddle and tons of details.
From these pictures, it also looks like Hallow's End will be getting a revamp or at least a new pet. Black and orange kittens in witch hats look pretty awesome. The Winged Lion pet will probably go with the Winged Lion mount from last patch; it will be interesting to see when these land in the store together and if he's tied to another plush. Oh, and that bizarre looking whelp? How legendary indeed. (It's most likely , a reward for completing .)
Patch 4.1 - PTR Build 13750 - 3D Models (Lions and Ice Cream and Bears, Oh My!)
2011/03/16 at 4:20 PM
That's right -
. There weren't very many new models this patch but the ones that were included definitely stand out. In addition, we've (also) decided to post the winged lion model that you may have already seen floating around other sites. This model was actually added a few builds ago but looks rather unfinished at this time. We will, of course, post an updated version as soon as its available. So... what do you think it is?
In addition to the lion, we've also got a new Amani Bear model which is simply a recoloring of the old
Amani War Bear
. No word yet on whether or not this is the finished version of the upcoming , or simply a dungeon NPC or otherwise, but judging by the fact that the Zul'Gurub raptor looks to have gotten a recolor as well, this may be the case. Laaaaaaaaaaame. Oh, well!
Also, ICE CREAMS. OM NOM NOM.
