That's right, the Wowhead Blog is 1 year old today!
I just wanted to take a moment to thank all of you guys for your readership, your comments, and your support for the past year—as well as a huge thank you to all of our
for their ceaseless contributions. I'm proud of what the blog has become (from our
last year), and I'm looking forward to another year. :)
Blizzard Authenticators: Are They Worth It?
2009/11/13 at 1:39 AM
The Authenticator is an excellent tool that keeps unwanted hackers out of your account through a nearly infallible method. However, this device also has the potential to cause a
of inconvenience for the account holder, oftentimes more trouble than it would cause for a hacker. I can say from this personal experience because I’ve gone through it twice already. After the second incident, it really made me reconsider whether or not the Authenticator was worth the hassle.
The first time happened was when I went on a trip to Northern California.
Forge of Souls Impressions
2009/10/13 at 4:24 PM
So it took me a good few days to find some time to test the new 5-man introduced in the latest PTR build. Yep, I am talking about the Forge of Souls, the first wing of the Frozen Halls, which is the composite name of all 3 5-mans in the Icecrown Citadel. Story-wise it is the first section of the Frozen Halls you are going to enter, so I am going to spend a little time talking about the story behind those three dungeons.
Yep, after the break :D
Oh, and let me tell you something. Instance full of creepy flying skulls that seem to be laughing at you while floating around playfully is one of the creepiest things I have ever seen in the game.
Battle.net Mandatory Starting Nov. 11 (US) / Nov. 12 (EU)
2009/10/11 at 1:55 AM
UPDATE – 12 Oct:
It looks like Blizzard employees have no doubt made it clear the merges will be mandatory starting next month. Players on North American servers will need to merge their accounts before
, and players on EU servers will need to merge their accounts before
if they have not done so already. The threads are located
We all know this day was coming, but we didn't know exactly
it would happen until now: You will need to merge your WoW account in order to access it before November 11th/12th, or else your account will be inaccessible. This report came directly from Boubouille on
, and the source came directly from
EU Blizzard's Battle.net FAQ
The quoted FAQ and article come right after the break!
Pit of Saron Impressions
2009/10/03 at 5:30 PM
So after much struggle and not a single WoW reinstall, I finally managed to get my PTR Client up and working. Eager to test the Pit of Saron, I transferred my
(who is actually a tank, so his Ret gear isn't that great), I went to the place, got a group together in a few mere instants... and could not enter. Apparently having done so many phasing quests in Icecrown, I was not able to see the instance portals. Which I fixed by simply copying a pre-made character, paladin tank as well, and, oh wonders - I was able to enter the instance soon after my first failure!
So this blog is going to be about my first impressions of the place. A word of caution before we start - I was not able to fight the final boss, Scourgelord Tyrannus. He was just not there. Kind people in the LFG channel politely informed me that he should be there, so I guess I had just encountered a bug. I will try again later and update the blog with impressions of the fight against him as well.
3.3 Speculations (Part 1)
2009/10/03 at 2:05 PM
So just a couple days back I brought you some juicy
(because we all know the blog wasn't actually about the PTR coming up). Well, I was talking to Corgan yesterday, and apparently he is really good at digging interesting stuff out of the game files and
. So we just kind of sat
, he was throwing links at me, I was reading as quickly as possible, and then there were some promises and implications that my immediate descendants would suffer an... interesting fate, if I failed to post all that in a blog.
So here it is. The blog is going to be really spoiler heavy. I am only going to cover Quel'Delar in this part (exploring other interesting quest chains, and some interesting spells too in the later issues), so if you are fine with that - go ahead. If not... I just wrote a very long blog for you not to read :P
