We have exciting news for our many Italian players: you will soon be able to play WoW in your native language!
Existing players will be able to download a free language pack to experience the game in Italian when it launches later this year.
Gamers in Europe will also be able to purchase fully localized versions of World of Warcraft (which now includes its first expansion, The Burning Crusade) and its three following expansions, Wrath of the Lich King, Cataclysm, and the upcoming Mists of Pandaria.
The games will be available for purchase at retail and digitally through your Battle.net account.
Of course, the official World of Warcraft website and forums will be offered in Italian, and we’ll also be opening up Italian realms!
Stay tuned for more information on a release date in the coming months.

Patch 4.3.2 Live Today
2012/01/31 at 12:11 PM
It has taken its time, but 4.3.2 is finally hitting servers this week!
A controversial patch, this one introduces gradually scaling zone buffs to
that recall back to the ones Icecrown Citadel had--a 5% buff will be added to the instance for raids who which to take advantage of it. There are also several encounter specific nerfs that aim to allow different raid compositions for the instance's final heroic modes and several class balance tweaks.
As Blizzard has said prior
, this will be the last patch of Cataclysm before a pre-Mists of Pandaria world event, so this patch also marks the beginning of the end for this expansion!

This spell will grow progressively stronger over time to reduce the difficulty and make
Patch 4.3.2 Will be Cataclysm's Last According to Dave Kosak
2012/01/17 at 5:45 PM
Dave Kosak, Blizzard's lead quest designer, gave a
solid interview with Videogamer.com
late last week. He highlighted 4.3's successes, failures, and also confirmed that there will be no extra content in the wings for Cataclysm--meaning anyone betting on a Ruby Sanctum styled encounter should stop while they're ahead.
In the interview, Kosak also touched on World of Warcraft's recent subscriber losses as well as Blizzard's overall feelings towards Cataclysm as an expansion. Although many have been disappointed with Cataclysm, he was quick to note the sheer level of content it brought to the world and how much of an epic undertaking that truly was for the World of Warcraft development team. Overhauling all those low level quests took massive amounts of time--and were desperately needed, whether players realize it or not.
While Cataclysm may not have been the highlight of WoW's timeline, it was a necessary one to prolong the life of Azeroth.
Hit the break for a transcript of the full interview and let us know your thoughts on both the interview and the expansion. Was Cataclysm a good expansion? Should there have been anot
Patch 4.3.2 - PTR Build 15176 - Spell Changes
2012/01/10 at 2:19 PM
We have our spell changes from the latest PTR build up. We've merged them with the past ones from last week, so you can see all the spell changes that are on the PTR so far. Besides the TCG items, there are no new items so far, but these are significant spell changes. The biggest are actually under NPC changes, where you can see Dragon Soul is in for some huge nerfs come 4.3.2.

Cross Realm Raids in 4.3.2
2012/01/06 at 8:49 PM
We previously introduced the ability to form cross-realm parties with Real ID friends, and now with Patch 4.3.2, we're adding the ability for players to use that same functionality to form raids to run older normal or heroic raids, or participate in Battlegrounds!
This will allow you to join up with your Real ID friends from other realms and:
Form a cross-realm raid and use Raid Finder
Jump in to any classic dungeon or raid and be automatically placed in the same instance
Join forces and dominate the Battlegrounds
Please note, you will not yet be able to run normal or Heroic Dragon Soul with cross-realm Real ID raids.
As we look forward to the BattleTag system, it’s a very exciting time for World of Warcraft. No matter what realm you and your friends are on you’ll be able to team up and take on group content throughout the game.
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.
