Latest Cataclysm Hotfixes (March 25 - March 29)
2011/03/30 at 1:37 PM
Just a tiny batch of new hotfixes, all of which were implemented between March 25 - March 29. Maybe Blizzard is finally running out of things to fix? Yeah, right. Don't worry, 4.1 will bring a whole new mess of changes and bugfixes all too soon! Nothing too incredibly interesting today, though I'm sure it was funny how players were using
prior to the fix, and I'll definitely welcome the lack of aggressive mobs near one of the more common

A bug has been fixed that could cause
during the Ascendant Council encounter (Heroic difficulty) to target an existing fire patch, instead of creating a new one.

Patch 4.1 - Rise of the Zandalari Official Preview
2011/03/25 at 12:26 PM
Blizzard hit us today with the official content preview for Patch 4.1: Rise of the Zandalari. It's a well-written summary of the threats adventurers will be facing soon and explains what role Vol'jin will be playing and the numerous threats that Stranglethorn contains. It also shows us some of the new vanity drops we'll be seeing.
In years past, the Zandalar tribe, encompassing the wise and scholarly progenitors of the trolls, heroically assisted the Horde and the Alliance with thwarting the nefarious activities of their brethren in Zul'Gurub and Zul'Drak. Yet the chaos unleashed by the recent Cataclysm has reshaped the Zandalari's philosophy about the world and the dwindling remnants of their race. Led by a mysterious prophet known only as Zul, the Zandalari have issued a call to Azeroth's embattled troll populations: unite into a single mighty empire and save their race from extinction.
Thus far, the Gurubashi and Amani trolls have answered the summons and received aid from the Zandalari, allowing them to rebuild their respective capitals in Zul'Gurub and Zul'Aman. Not all trolls, however, have so eagerly adopted the Zandala

Blizzard Posts on Cataclysm Raid Content: Is It Too Inaccessible?
2011/03/21 at 4:26 PM
Some fresh new Blizzard posts today discussing the accessibility and difficulty of Cataclysm raid content. While I'm sure most of this will be immediately dismissed as "casuals whining, lol" the posters do bring up some valid points and the Blizzard posters provide some excellent and thought-out answers. Not everyone is in a big guild, or can commit the time to meet certain raiding expectations - is Cataclysm content not intended for them? If not, what content is? Remember when it was the
who got buffed in raid dungeons (
Chill of the Throne
How do you feel about the current state of Cataclysm raid content? Too hard? Too easy? TOO SOON?
Check out the Blizzard posts after the break and let us know what you think!
Latest Cataclysm Hotfixes (March 2 - 16)
2011/03/17 at 3:49 PM
It's been so long without Cataclysm hotfixes, I almost missed these! *runs away and hides*
Just a few new hotfixes since March began, as I'm sure Blizzard is extremely busy preparing for patch 4.1 and may finally be running out of things to hotfix in patch 4.0.6 (though I'm sure many of you guys will quickly and eagerly tell me how very wrong I am about that). There's still some time before 4.1 hits so we'll probably see a lot of necessary changes either making their way live or being implemented with the next patch!
This latest batch of hotfixes includes some modifications to Heroic difficulty
encounters, as well as few other fixes (no more cheesing the flag in
, no more kiting
). Check 'em out after the break!
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.
