BFF Report: Horde Starting Zones and the Best FREE Vanity Pet Ever!
2010/11/11 at 12:47 PM
Following up on last week's Alliance starting zone review, I have a shiny new BFF Report FOR THE HORDE (cwutidid?). In this episode, we get the inside scoop on each race, some funky beta bugs and the best FREE companion pet.. Darnell.
I'm happy to report that last week's episode on the Alliance zones broke a record in views for the BFF Report. Thanks everyone for watching!
...now lets see if the Horde episode can beat the Alliance record..hehe ;)
How To Find Cataclysm Instance Entrances
2010/11/11 at 12:35 AM
The other night I stumbled upon the work of the talented
, where he had posted an assortment of nicely made and extremely informative images that I guarantee will be of value to many players in preparation for the Cataclysm! He's given us permission to share with you guys this awesome collection, detailing locations of each of the new dungeons launching with Cataclysm.
Remember, come Cataclysm, you will not be able to queue for one of the new dungeons via the Dungeon Finder unless you have first discovered its entrance! Thankfully, Blizzard has assured us that the normal leveling path will lead you to discovering most of these dungeons without much effort, but there's definitely no such thing as too much information! Enjoy!
We've also put together a video showing easy paths you can take to reach each instance portal! :)
Check out all of the awesome images after the break!
The End Is Near... What Would You Do?
2010/11/11 at 12:28 AM
Blizzard's having some fun with their new forums (how can they not, they're pretty awesome!) and they've posted their first
, asking a pretty interesting question:
If you believed the end of Azeroth was nigh, what would be the first thing you'd do?
Most of the options are pretty funny, and a few raise some very good points - like
just go to Outland?
is pretty nice every time of the year, after all, and there's no reminder of Deathwing ravaging the land. Besides, who doesn't love floating islands?
The earth shakes with growing frequency. Elementals pour out of rifts like rodents escaping a sinking ship. Your esteemed faction leaders, barely recovered from the strain of the campaign in Northrend, have been summoned to deliberate on a matter most urgent. And now, doomsayers affiliated with the Twilight's Hammer are gathering openly within the city walls, preaching the coming of something dark and ancient... and the ruination of all.

These new companion pets (as
we blogged about earlier
) will be available for purchase from the
Blizzard Online Store
soon! Unfortunately, unlike their previous pet offerings, it looks as though these hatchlings might actually be faction-specific (so no Night Elf moonkins for us Hordies, and vice versa). C'mon, Blizzard, prove me wrong! And while you're
Goblin and Worgen Faction/Race Changes Available at Launch
2010/11/09 at 11:16 PM
Blizzard announced something I know quite a few of us have been waiting for:
Worgen and Goblins
will be available on launch day!
There is a little caveat to the way paid services work for goblins and worgen: either of them wishing to change races or factions cannot be in either Gilneas or Lost Isles. There is no restrictions on on players wishing to change to goblins or worgen.
With two new playable races just on the horizon, many players have been asking when they'll be able to convert their existing characters into goblins or worgen. Paid faction and race changes will be available immediately once Cataclysm is released. Realm First achievements for leveling any class to 85 will be available in Cataclysm. However there will be no Realm First achievements associated with leveling characters of a specific race.
There will be a slight change to the way paid services work for goblins and worgen. Goblin and worgen characters wishing to change race or faction cannot be in Lost Isles or Gilneas; they must be elsewhere to initiate the proc

Update: Blizzard has posted some clarifications! Check after the break to see!
Blizzard recently snuck out a new Cataclysm Beta patch, and with it came a number of spell changes, new items, and all the usual goodies. We've posted in-depth details on all of these changes in our blog
, but I wanted to draw more attention to a significantly major change that will affect many completionists out there.
In this latest Cataclysm Beta build,
Insane in the Membrane
