Action Figures 25% off in the Blizzard Gear Store
If you've always wanted some Blizzard Action Figures, now is the time! They are currently
25% off in the Gear Store
, so you can pick up some action figures for as little as $13 plus shipping and handling.
There's no official word from Blizzard on when this sale might end, so if you're in dire need of a Headless Horseman figurine, it may be advisable to act sooner rather than later.
Alas, there is still no Gear Store outside the US, so prepare to pay more for international shipping if it applies.
Game Responsiveness Improved in Warlords
Technical Game Designer Chadd "Celestalon" Nervig posted regarding some notable improvements to game performance coming in Warlords of Draenor. These improvements will mean that the game responds far faster to all player inputs and actions, and will have a good impact on issues like AoE effects not ending where their visual does, boss ability hits, interrupts in PvP, and much more.

Latest Warlords of Draenor Alpha Patch Notes
In the updated Warlords of Draenor Alpha Patch Notes, there's a new section on Active Mana Regeneration, as well as several changes to Ability Pruning. You can see all these changes summarized below:
Active Mana Regeneration
Another part of the changes to healing is providing a way for them to better manage their mana. There are ways to spend more mana for more healing but, we’re also adding methods for healers to trade extra time or healing or more mana to use later in a fight when they really need it.
Innervate has been redesigned to now have a 2-second cast time with no cooldown, and causes the Druid to gain 2.5% of maximum mana every 4 seconds for 8 seconds.
Spending any mana on a healing spell will cancel this effect.
Crackling Jade Lightning's channel duration has been reduced to 4 seconds.
Stance of the Wise Serpent now also causes Crackling Jade Lightning to cost no mana, and restore 2% of the Monk’s maximum mana if the ability is channeled for its full duration.
