2009/12/15 at 12:36 AM
, an official German fansite, they had a chance to have a chat with Tom "Kalgan" Chilton who is the Lead Game Designer for World of Warcraft. They touch on a lot of things including everything from player housing (no it's not in the plans) to Cataclysm and the the future.
There is even mention that there may be a
content patch before Cataclysm
but it won't be like a major content patch and could contain class balance fixes, bug fixes, implementation of new Battle.net features, and maybe even a new raid boss? A new Wyrmrest Temple boss? Who knows.

Jace Hall Blizzard Interview Video
2009/11/13 at 2:10 PM
So Blizzard has provided us with a video from their archives!
This is an interview that
did with the Blizzard staff which originally aired on December 15, 2008—just a month or so after the release of Wrath of the Lich King. He explores the Blizzard offices (which they never let me take pictures of!), talks about the decisions they made for Wrath, and settles an old rivalry.
Check out the
after the break!
G4 Interviews Blizzard Team for WoW 5-Year Anniversary Retrospective
2009/11/02 at 2:28 PM
World of Warcraft turns five years old on November 23, 2009, and G4 has kicked off the celebration a little early with a series of
with some big names at Blizzard.
X-Play host Morgan Webb sat down with Game Director
, Lead World Designer
and former Game Director
Jeffrey "Tigole" Kaplan
to look back at the history of WoW from day one.
The combined videos total more than 35 minutes in length, so there's a lot to digest in the retrospective. There's nothing particularly noteworthy mentioned in the interviews, but they're certainly worth viewing for fans who are interested in hearing Chilton, Afrasiabi and Kaplan reminisce about WoW's history and explain their duties at Blizzard.
For those of you who don't know, Kaplan left the WoW team to work on Blizzard's next big MMO project, which he's "super excited about" but couldn't discuss in det
Priest Q&A with Ghostcrawler
2009/08/04 at 12:46 AM
It looks like
right—I am not prepared! Who would have guessed Blizzard would release two Q&As in one day? ;)
One of my favorite parts of the interview is that Blizzard's considering removing the "backlash" from
if the target is within "
" range. The other part is that Blizzard wants to make Shadow talents that improve the overall damage of Shadow Priests, so that their damage is not penalized in cases where DoTs are useless. But enough chit-chat—let's get to the interview!

Rogue Q&A with Ghostcrawler
2009/08/03 at 3:05 PM
Much like the rogue class itself, Blizzard decided to be pretty sneaky and release the Rogue Q&A as one of the last class Q&As. Maybe they used some rouge to hide it? :D
For the most, I enjoyed reading the interview. I like that Blizzard admitted that a few aspects are in need of a fix, and that they defended a few decisions which negatively affected rogues. My favorite part of the interview was about
and its current functionality—but have a look for yourself! You can read the entire interview after the break, or read the original one linked below:
Q&A Crusaders' Coliseum + Isle of Conquest
2009/07/31 at 1:08 PM
Looks like the class Q&A were popular enough to make Blizzard create non-class Q&A as well :) I don't know about you, but I feel better seeing that all those questions we ask on the forums are being read, and some of them - even answered. Publicly.
This time it's a combined Q&A about the
(the new 5-, 10-, and 25-man dungeons) and the
Isle of Conquest
(the new Battleground).
I myself didn't find a terrible lot of new information in this Q&A, but it helps to see all those thing put together by somebody from Blizzard. Follow the link to the WoW-Europe forums, or read on to find out what
has to tell us:
Hunter Q&A with Ghostcrawler
2009/07/23 at 1:59 PM
This Q&A was more adventurous than the others. Just as we spotted it, it was pulled off the official forums (and website, if it ever made it there).
still had it though, so we used their version - you can find the source over at their
. I personally expect changes to be made to the original Q&A (which is what you see here), hence the pulling off. Keep an eye on the thread, we'll try to post the updated version, if there is one, as soon as we can.
Looks like everything is alright with the Q&A now. You can find the source under the quote, after the break (through nine mountains in the tenth, through nine rivers...). The
in the quote was not there before - it's the only new thing.
This time it's Hunter. Remember how I was happy about the Druid one because my next alt would be a druid? Well, the alt I am currently leveling is a
! So I am naturally excited to see what they have to say about it, and about Marksman in particular. I still haven't r
Druid Q&A Follow-up
2009/07/21 at 6:58 PM
did raise points interesting enough for Bornakk to answer a few additional questions. I am not a very active druid player, but one of the things he said looks very interesting to me:
Please continue to
Any chance I am not going to see any "

As usually, you can find the full content of the Q&A at the following link, or after the break!
