Blackrock Caverns Impressions

The latest news on the Internet - Cataclysm closed beta is hitting us good! But we all know this. What's more important is that since the NDA has been lifted, we'll be showering you with tons of new information, blogs, guide pages, videos, screenshots, and dataz.
just posted some good stuff about the
in Cataclysm (and you should check it out if you haven't), so I decided to go a different route - do a dungeon, see how it feels, give a few screenshots, and a bit of an overall opinion about how the experience is.
Right now the only two dungeons available for testing are
Throne of the Tides
. So I went to my good old friend, the Dungeon Finder, and said "Yo dawg, you heard I like dungeons? Give me a random one!" And so the
Wrath of the Lich King: Exhausted?

I have been playing WoW for close to 3 years now, I think. One of the main things that has kept me
in the game so long was a basic MMORPG concept, that Blizzard developed to great heights - there is always stuff to do. If it's not leveling, then it's questing. If it's not questing, it's money-making. If it's not money-making, it's gearing up. If it's not gearing up, it's raiding. If it's not raiding, it's achievement farming. I could probably go on for a while (without mentioning PvP, I don't really do that).
So okay, there is always stuff to do. The game is endless, and that's one of its charms.
Cataclysm Professions Preview
2010/05/12 at 11:37 AM
Well, we've seen what the plans for the class changes in
are - 3 new abilities in the 80-85 range, talent modifications, new talents, and some core class mechanics overhauls. Oh, and masteries. Overall - pretty interesting stuff.
Now a new wave of juicy and interesting news hits the board - changes in the professions. Ever been annoyed by the various profession specializations? Well, that's going away. Elixirs not good enough for you? Getting buffed. New Jewelcrafting, Cooking and Fishing dailies, but most importantly -
Enchanting vanity pet
Follow us after the break, and see it all!
Battle.net Real ID Friends
2010/05/05 at 2:16 PM
Blizzard just announced yet another one of the features the new and improved Battle.net will have. Just earlier today they said that Battle.net will have Facebook integration, and now this.
to your Battle.net account will allow you and your friends (who have also entered their IDs and have agreed to be friends with you) to access a number of unique features - real names for friends, cross-game chat, rich presence (additional information about what your friends are doing/playing), broadcasts (short messages to all your friends), and see-all-characters.
X-53 Touring Rocket Available Today
2010/04/27 at 10:55 AM
You may recall that Blizzard announced some changes to the Recruit-a-Friend
mount reward a little while ago. If you had an unclaimed Zhevra, the announcement said, or if you decided to recruit a friend in the near future, you would have the normal Zhevra reward changed to a spectacular
X-53 Touring Rocket
Well, the big day is today. As of today, April 27, 2010 (possibly after the maintenance), if you recruit a friend or if you have Zhevras waiting to be assigned to one of you characters, you will start getting the X-53's!
Here is the short post by Zarhym:
Time is running out for those who wish to claim their Zhevra, as the launch of the X-53 Touring Rocket is now scheduled for tomorrow, Tuesday, April 27! If you’ve fulfilled all of the Recruit-A-Friend requirements necessary to claim a mount now but choose not to claim the Zhevra, you will be able to claim the X-53 Touring Rocket instead once it launches. Sounds like they’re firing it up for a final test run now....

Cataclysm Raid Progression Refinements
2010/04/26 at 10:58 AM
Some clarifications have been added to the bottom of the post.
Another blue post from the blue world of blue Blizzardness descends from the skies - this time it's about how raid progression is going to work in
10- and 25-man raids will share the same lockout.
10- and 25-man raids will share the same loot.
Heroic loot will be, like in Icecrown, just a buffed up version of the Normal loot.
The raid leader will be able to decide between 10-man and 25-man (possibly on a boss-to-boss basis), much like you can now choose between Normal and Heroic mode for a raid.
Since 25-man raids will drop the exact same items as 10-man, to promote people actually going to 25-man raiding, Blizzard is making 10-man encounters drop less loot per player (actual items, badges, gold...). In short, if you can get 25 people, you will get more out of the raid than if you were to go with 10.
Heroic mode for the bosses will be unlocked simply defeating a specific boss as few as (probably) 1-2 times. Limited attempts will likely go away completely, except for rare bosses (e.g. Algalon).
