Legendary Cloak Questline: The PvP Portion
2014/06/16 at 7:53 PM
Legendary Cloak PvP - Battleground Guide
The most controversial part of the Legendary Cloak quest line is undoubtedly the PvP section, specifically
The Lion Roars
Glory to the Horde
for Horde players. Many players hate it, wish it didn't exist, and many even give up. So, Wowhead wanted to put together a short guide to getting through the PvP portion of the quest line as painlessly as possible. We're not going to go into huge depth with Rated Battleground level tactics, instead this is a survival guide to help with the basics of these two battlegrounds. Do check out our
full Legendary Cloak Guide
for more information.
If you have the resources to do so, getting together nine other players to exchange wins in these battlegrounds in 5v5 Wargames can be an easy way out of participating in Random Battlegrounds.
Temple of Kotmogu
Temple of Kotmogu's main mechanic is holding orbs. There are four orbs, and holding them earns your team victory points, depending on where you are while you're holding them.
News Roundup: Connected Accounts, Azeroth Choppers, Wowhead Guides, Tank Giveaway, Tweets
2014/05/30 at 6:33 PM
A new feature has appeared on battle.net, allowing players to connect their battle.net account to an X-Box Live account or a Playstation Network account. The page offers "legendary rewards and benefits" for doing so, but it remains unclear just exactly what those might be.
It seems likely that this may relate to the upcoming release of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls on console on August 19. It will release on PS3, PS4, XBox 360 and XBox One. Over a year ago, Blizzard Community Manager Vaeflare said in
a forum post
that "there are currently no plans to allow connectivity between PlayStation Network and Battle.net". Maybe this account connection signals a change to this policy going forwards?
Significant Tweets: Garrisons, Toybox, Pet Battles
We know it's hard to keep up with tweet traffic, especially at busy times like this, so we've put together a post sorting all the tweets since our last update into easy-to-read tabs. And of course there's the

Warlords of Draenor Professions Overview
2014/05/25 at 11:38 AM
Over the past month, we've gathered a lot of data on professions in Warlords, and now we're turning that into a guide!
Our overview takes a look at what's being added for each profession, from useful consumables to vanity items. While Warlords professions will not have combat perks tied to them, there are a ton of neat things you can craft, plus Garrison buildings to help you get crafting materials.
Do keep in mind that profession data is still being updated, and some professions may have additional details yet to come! We'll update this every alpha build with anything interesting we find.

2014 Children's Week Guide (April 28 - May 5)
2014/04/28 at 1:54 PM
is a week in which we brave a challenge greater than any undead monstrosity and a task more daunting than saving the world. We must become parents for all those orphans throughout Azeroth and make sure they are happy. We can't tank a child's fears, we can't heal its memories of pain, nor can we DPS the sorrow out of them. So equip your toys, make a mage conjure a candy table, fill your quiver with joy, load your gun with something colorful, and venture into the World of Parenting!

There's nothing new in 2014, but since all vanity pets are now battle pets in Mists of Pandaria, you might be more interested in collecting pets this expansion! Since battle pets are also account-wide, you can collect different sets of pets on your alts to round out your collection faster.
