5.1 PTR: New PvP Faction Rewards and Quests
2012/10/19 at 12:04 PM
The conflict between the Alliance and Horde is really heating up in 5.1. In the recent PTR patch, vendors were added in Krasarang Wilds that sell zone-specific PvP items, and we datamined a few more quest chains charting the story developments in this area.
(Edit: This article was updated 11/28 with finalized Commendation items and prices.)
To recap: there are new PvP hubs in Krasarang Wilds in 5.1 that have daily quests, charting the growing conflict between the Alliance and the Horde. Along with this, there are two new factions:

As you quest in Krasarang's PvP areas, you'll loot commendations from enemy NPCs and players. These commendations are only acquired from looting--they are not quest rewards. Players can turn them into items that buff other pl

Level 90 characters are working once again on the PTR, so we took a look at the new developments in Stormwind, Orgrimmar, and Krasarang Wilds. There's two major features that we found:
Krasarang Wilds PvP Hubs
. From what we've seen, it looks like the Alliance is getting a lot of love when it comes to these new areas that show off combat and PvP skills--their areas show that they've rebounded from Theramore.
Krasarang Wilds: New PvP Hubs
A large part of 5.1 is about the Alliance and Horde conflict escalating to the point where they've set up military bases on the shores of Krasarang Wilds.
Two new reputations have been added as a result:
for the Alliance and
for the Horde.
The Alliance hub is located at
in the east, and the Horde hub is located at
to the far west.
Each base has objectives for the enemy team to capture like graveyards and towers, commissions to earn that can recruit guards to protect your new territory, and daily quests.

Wowhead's Patch 5.0.4 Guide
2012/08/28 at 12:46 PM
5.0.4 is live today and we have an extensive guide to everything new! While there's no new raids or gear in this patch, many things will keep you busy. Class abilities, talent trees, and glyphs have been drastically changed, so it's good there's a month before Mists of Pandaria to familiarize yourself with the changes! If achievement-hunting is more your thing, all achievements are account-wide in 5.0.4, as well as many mounts, pets, and titles.
Below, you'll find consolidated versions of our 5.0.4 feature coverage, as well as patch notes, videos, class guides, and links to blue posts.
Patch Notes and Overview
The talent system received an extensive overhaul
: players get one talent every 15 levels now, for 6 maximum in MoP. Specialization and core class abilities have changed as well.
Prime glyphs are removed
and many new minor vanity glyphs are added.
Achievements are now account-wide
and some can even be completed across characters. In addition, many mounts, pets, and titles are account-wide as well.
It is not possible to earn

Patch 4.3.2 - PTR Build 15176 - Spell Changes
2012/01/10 at 2:19 PM
We have our spell changes from the latest PTR build up. We've merged them with the past ones from last week, so you can see all the spell changes that are on the PTR so far. Besides the TCG items, there are no new items so far, but these are significant spell changes. The biggest are actually under NPC changes, where you can see Dragon Soul is in for some huge nerfs come 4.3.2.

News Round Up: 4.3.2, Darkmoon Faire, and D3DB
2012/01/04 at 1:41 PM
Due to yesterday's downtime, we were a little slow on announcing our contest winners and getting the new PTR information out. However, we should make that up with some exciting news today that has to do with Sanctuary!
I have some awesome news that I've been holding in for a few weeks:
D3DB has joined the ZAM Network
! These guys were heavily inspired by Wowhead when they launched their database years ago and have become the best Diablo III resource around, so it's great to see it come full circle and get to team up with them in an official capacity. We'll be working closely with them as they are a fellow Blizzard fansite. (And it's Diablo III, I mean, do you know how awesome that is?)
On the WoW front, there were some difficulties this month with the Darkmoon Faire; dailies were not resetting, some monthly quests didn't either. Blizzard has patched it up, though, last night.
Make sure to check out our guide to how to get the most tickets
