A Wowhead Holiday Treat

So it looks like
spent a little time this holiday season cooking up a special treat!
That's her and her new beau,
, cooking up a delicious batch of
They came out beautifully, and I'm crossing my fingers that I'll get some in the mail before Christmas day—and word is that she might be sending some to Blizzard as well. ;)
Cataclysm Launch Event Gallery
2010/12/07 at 2:15 PM
So I'm home from the Cataclysm Launch Event!
it was a great time last night, lots of people there. One person said there were over 9000—but I realized later that may have been a joke. I even saw a lot of people who I had seen two years ago at the Wrath release event—I even ran into John Finch, the guy who was first in line last year. He said he'd arrived 48 hours before, and was still only 20th in line.
Once again, I want to thank Blizzard for NOT being the kind of company who tries to create buzz by not having enough copies of the game at launch. I wasn't there until about 7pm, and I still got a Collector's Edition. :)
This whole process has been kind of nostalgic for me, because for those of you who've been with us for a while, you may know that our discussion and picture gallery of the original Wrath launch event two years ago was actually our very
of blog posts. So with that in mind, I leave you now as I left you then, with the most important part of the whole process:
Cataclysm: New Dungeons & Raids Preview
2010/12/02 at 2:35 PM
We recently previewed the upcoming
, where we showed off the awesome new zones players will be able to experience in less than a week. We've not only got awesome zones such as Uldum, Kezan and Vashj'ir to look forward to, but many of these new zones feature new dungeons and raids as well! Cataclysm will ship with eight new dungeons, two upgraded Heroic versions of classic dungeons, and four new raids (with more being released in later patches). These dungeons will (of course) feature both normal and heroic versions, with raid encounters offering unlockable encounter-specific difficulty toggling. These raids will support the Flexible Lock System (
, as well as in our
), allowing players to adjust raid sizing as necessary.
We've already seen quite a bit of new dungeon loot courtesy of the Cataclysm Beta, and there are many new items which can be purchased from vendors (including Tier 11 pieces!) using the new Justice Points and Valor Points curren
Cataclysm New Zones Preview
2010/11/30 at 11:50 AM
We're finally in the last days until World of Warcraft's Cataclysm expansion hits, bringing with it two new races (
which we covered previously
) and a ton of new zones, quests, dungeons, raids and more! We've gotten quite a look at the future of World of Warcraft with the recent patch, The Shattering, in which Deathwing brought destruction to the zones of Azeroth, changing our World of Warcraft forever.
The Shattering patch brought massive changes to all of the existing zones.
For those purchasing the Cataclysm expansion, you will see new zones being added to the game
. These new zones include 4 new zones for Goblin and Worgen races and 6 new leveling / endgame zones for players level 80 - 85. Check out our preview of these zones, from our
including maps, screenshots and even videos
after the break!
