10th Mosaic Tile Unlocked: Invincible Music
2010/01/23 at 11:45 AM
It has been
since the last tile was unlocked in the Warcraft
. Blizzard has finally reached the half way mark with
images collected, and with this a new tile was unlocked in the mosaic.
Along with this, instead of a piece of art being unlocked, a
piece of music
was selected as the goodie for this milestone. This one is titled "Invincible", which is the name of the Lich King's steed (see the 3D model on the right).
An ode to one who has fallen. Time and events have left it unclear whether the song refers to the former prince of Lordaeron or his beloved steed.
While we are over half way done there is still
pictures left to be collected, so head on over to the official
Blizzard Selling Gold...?
2010/01/22 at 2:56 PM
Blizzard has recently started selling gold... coins. Well not Blizzard directly— but
, the people who make the official Warcraft
, have created exclusive sets for both the
Each coin features a major faction figure and is made with the actual metal the coin represents. The Alliance set comes with a 24 karat gold-plated coin featuring King Varian Wrynn, a sterling-silver plated coin with King Magni Bronzebeard, and a copper-plated coin adorned with High Priestess Tyrande Whisperwind.
The Horde set features Thrall on the gold-plated coin, Lady Sylvanas on the silver and Cairne Bloodhoof on the copper. Each set comes in black wooden box with a glass window and contains a non-removable commemorative metal plaque with your faction emblem.

PvP Resilience Buff In Place for Season 8
2010/01/20 at 4:52 PM
As mentioned two days ago in the blog about the upcoming
Arena Season 8
, Blizzard has decided to hotfix a buff to resilience. This will
double the value
of resilience in reducing damage done by players, depending on how much you have you could see between a 10 and 20% decrease in damage taken.
The critical strike chance and critical strike damage are unaffected by this change. Blizzard also mentions how this might make healing in PvP difficult to counter and may make changes if this occurs.
So what does everyone think on this change? Is this good or bad for the PvP community?

2010/01/05 at 3:19 PM
Now that the Plagueworks is open in
, we know when the next wing will open.
's platform, you can find out how long until the next wing opens—and according to him the Crimson Hall, which contains the
, opens 2 weeks from today. That puts the release on January 19, 2010!
If Blizzard stays consistent with the last wing that would put the release of The Frostwing Hall and The Frozen Throne, which has
The Lich King (Icecrown)
himself, to be released on February 2, 2010—2 weeks after the release of the Crimson Hall.
This is correct.
Then the next wing of Icecrown Citadel opens in 2 weeks.
Arena Season 7 Ending Soon
2010/01/05 at 2:04 PM
According to a post by Bornakk on the official forums, Arena Season 7 will be ending as early as January 19. When that time comes around it will take one week for Blizzard to calculate who will be eligible for end-of-season rewards, such as
Relentless Gladiator's Frost Wyrm
and season titles.
We are currently planning to end Arena Season 7 as early as January 19. At that point we will go through our normal process to determine who is eligible for the end-of-season rewards. This process should take approximately one week. It's very important for players who feel that they may be eligible for the arena-specific titles and/or Relentless Gladiator’s Frostwyrm to refrain from transferring their character to another realm until after Arena Season 7 ends.
The following Arena Season will not begin for at least one week after the current season ends. During this time between seasons, all rated matches will be turned off and only skirmishes will be available. When Arena Season 8 begins, all team ratings, personal rating, and arena points will be wiped, but matchm

2009/12/31 at 5:08 PM
The fine folks over at Future US have been working on getting the first volume in the new
World of Warcraft magazine
ready for release. Now it's finally time to see the fruits of that labour!
(out of 148) of the magazine for everyone to read. It contains all kinds of interesting stuff from the table of contents of the full magazine to several pages dedicated to companion pets. Also touched on are stories from the past from early beta of the game, the Zombie Invasion, there is even articles on all three play styles (tanking, DPS and healing), and much more.
If that's enough to make you want to get the magazine itself (I know it is for me!) you can head over to their
and order it for yourself.
