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 Class & Race Combinations
2010/11/23 at 9:00 AM
One of the features that will be going live with patch 4.0.3a are the new Race/Class combinations
. This has been in our
for a while but we figured you might appreciate a nice clean table to ponder over while you wait for the servers to come back up.
: To clarify questions being asked in the comments:
When maintenance is complete, you will be able to choose any of the new combinations denoted by the symbol in the "Added in 4.0.3a" table below
. However, you will need to purchase Cataclysm and wait until December 7th before you can roll a Goblin or Worgen.

of the pre-Cataclysm launch event has begun! Doomsday Cultists are roaming the city streets and its up to us to try and put a stop to their strange rituals!
This phase adds several new quests in the capital cities of each faction. The full listing is below.

Elemental Invasion Guide!
Zarhym made an interesting post on the new community site regarding the invasion! Seems it will be even sooner before we see the next phase of the invasion!
The time between the start of stage 2 and stage 3 was shorter. I can tell you the current plan is to make the time between stage 3 and 4 even shorter. ;)
Phase 3: November 12 - November ???

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!
Day of the Dead 2010 Quest Guide + Information!
2010/11/01 at 3:45 PM
Day of the Dead
event has begun yet again in the World of Warcraft! This holiday remains
from 2009, so veteran players will find that there's nothing to do. It's also worth mentioning that the single quest available in the event doesn't seem to have reset from last year, so there's
no reason to participate. Newer players, however, should definitely head over to the nearest major city graveyard and get their achievement ASAP, as the event only lasts one day!
This event is a memorial holiday in which we celebrate the honor and memory of those who have passed on. They make a spiritual return to our lands, which we prepare with food and festivities, for only two days:
. The holiday is a
in-game event, similar to
, but it's pretty interesting regardless!
Everything you need to know about this world event can be found after the break.

It's Hallow's End time once again!
That's right, Hallow's End is here, and that means it's time for one of Miyari's handy-dandy

We'll be updating the guide with any additional information as the event goes on, so check back as you go!

It's Talk Like A Pirate Day in World of Warcraft, Too!
2010/09/19 at 4:42 PM
September 19th (today) is
in World of Warcraft, an in-game version of the international holiday
Talk Like A Pirate Day
! There's nothing new this year, so I'm just going to repost last year's guide for you guys, in case there's some new players out there who haven't had to opportunity to participate! While Pirates' Day not a full-blown holiday (such as
Midsummer Fire Festival
), it still provides an amusing distraction from the everyday grind - complete with pirate costumes and flagons of grog!
The Harvest Festival is here! (Sept 16 - Sept 22)
2010/09/16 at 8:36 PM
is here! Nothing new this year, but I've taken the liberty of reposting last year's guide on a new guide page for anyone who may not have participated. It's a pretty cool little event, lore-wise, but there's nothing remarkably amazing - they're basically just asking you guys to take a few minutes out of your day to show your respects to your faction's fallen hero. It would be really cool if Blizzard ever decided to elaborate on this event some, maybe by spotlighting other famous heroes (not just Grom and Uther) - maybe even tie it in with Archaeology somehow - yeah, yeah? Ah, wishful thinking... maybe next year.
