Today's roundup covers an increased spawn rate for

Shan'ze Ritual Stone
Several users have already reported this on
's page, but everyone's favorite dinosaur now more frequently respawns. If you haven't tried
yet, he's located on the
Isle of Giants
and drops ilvl 522 loot with dinosaur-themed names.
Agreed, this is an amazing fight of epic proportions and really tiny arms. We definitely want players to have more chances to experience it. The epicness should be about fighting it, not about finding when it spawns, even though that can also be somewhat fun as long as the timer is not so long that it gets frustrating.
You should be able to find Mr. “Tiny Hands”
a bit more often now.

As covered in the
hotfixes from last night
Ra'sha's Sacrificial Dagger
is now on a 30 minute cooldown instead of a 5 minute cooldown.

Mists of Pandaria: Vanity Items
2012/08/11 at 10:26 AM
After previewing all the
rare elites and their vanity drops
recently, we're taking a look at the rest of the fun items in Mists of Pandaria. There are disguises, pets, picnic baskets, and trinkets with fun visual procs. to name a few!
While quest rewards use a dynamic system in Mists of Pandaria, there's still some neat vanity items everyone gets, regardless of spec. And there's collectable items from dungeons, scenarios, and reputation vendors too.
Valley of the Four Winds
Valley of the Four Winds
has the most vanity rewards out of all the zones. Fortunately, many are available early on while questing.

Mists of Pandaria Loot Tables and Dungeon Journals
2012/07/18 at 1:52 PM
We've been holding off on posting the encounter journals and loot tables until they've gotten more filled out. Last Friday's patch, however, seems to have added a lot of data: there are loot tables and a lot more abilities added! The only journals that seem incomplete are the world bosses, which makes sense as they are probably deciding what mounts and rare items to assign them.
Be sure to check out each bosses and their back stories as well--
is by far the most menacing of this expansion!
Straddling the mountain range between the Jade Forest and the Vale of Eternal Blossoms, the Terrace of Endless Spring has been a sacred refuge for millennia. Its peaceful fountains are said to have the power to heal and rejuvenate, but when the Sha of Fear attacked, many of the complex's guardians turned on each other in fits of terror.

Azeroth in Sanctuary: WoW References in Diablo III
2012/05/19 at 11:47 AM
With Diablo III out this week, we suspect you haven't totally be focusing on WoW these past few days. We've been having a blast in Sanctuary too, and noticed little details that reminded us of Azeroth along the way, like constantly killing Community Manager Zarhym.
Finding little details like that is a ton of fun, so we put together a list of references between the two games: both references to WoW found in Diablo III, and references to Diablo I and II found in WoW. The Diablo items listed are from our sister site,
