Strategist: Lord Jaraxxus
2009/08/25 at 10:47 AM
With BlizzCon around, school (re)starting and twice as much raiding as before (now I lead my own group, and that eats my time a little), I haven't had a whole lot of time for guides. I try though. I've had most of this done a little while ago, but I got a chance to finish it just now. This may be bad news for some, others might be indifferent, but I personally dislike being behind on schedule, even if it's as flexible as mine. It doesn't help to say that you probably will see the Twin Val'kyr Strategist before the Faction Champions one - the latter is just too chaotic, and I doubt there will be a viable strategy anywhere for a long time.
Anyway, enough of my woes. This time it's
- an eredar lord summoned by
(master summoner). Thank or curse the little gnome for cheating you and summoning a mighty demon instead of a measly Doomguard. Whichever one you choose, it matters not - it's eredar you get. Read on, heroes, and find out how to defeat
not one but two
Game Systems Panel
2009/08/22 at 3:26 PM
One of the panels many of us have been expecting today was the Game Systems one - panel about Guild Advancement (leveling & achievements), Path of the Titans, Mastery System, and rated battlegrounds. I am not going to waste your time with introductions - on with the show!
Strategist: Northrend Beasts
2009/08/17 at 2:44 PM
Ha! Not Ulduar. Surprised, aren't you? You better not be...
Ulduar's Strategist was kind of a filler. Many of you had already done it, and a new patch was coming. However this new patch is here now, and it makes sense to start writing more
guides. You know, stuff people might actually get to use. Worry not, Ulduar won't be forgotten - just pushed down the list for a while.
So here I give you the first Strategist in Patch 3.2. The raid is Crusaders' Coliseum,
Trial of the Crusader
. The encounter:
Patch 3.2: Call of the Crusade Review
2009/08/15 at 3:01 AM
So 3.2 is upon us, and the Argent Coliseum is live! There's been a lot of coverage leading up to the new patch, and a lot of coverage now that it's out, but I thought you guys could use a single rundown for everything—which means that you are about to get a full-blown review of the Call of the Crusade, and all its awesomeness!
First, let me just give you the link to the official patch notes, if you prefer to read them there - and then we move on to the review!
We're going to lay this out for you: for every section, we'll have the patch notes first (click the title to see them), and then the reviews of that section of the patch notes. Then the patch notes for the next section, and so on and so on...
Argent Tournament Guide v2.0 (or 3.2?)
2009/08/13 at 7:57 AM
This guide is a continuation of the old
Argent Tournament Guide
Secrets of Ulduar
brought us quite an event - quests, daily quests, unique rewards, Seals system...and now the
Call of the Crusade
expands that. Most of the 3.2 content requires you to have obtained the title Crusader through
Exalted Argent Champion of the Alliance
Exalted Argent Champion of the Horde
, while the others only need you to be Exalted with either
The Silver Covenant
. If you are new to the Argent Tournament, please visit the first part of the guide for details, guides and detailed explanation of the mechanics, quests and rewards.
Ozzy Osbourne Rocks Blizzcon
2009/08/11 at 12:18 PM
Hail, brothers and sisters! If you are reading this, you are either just curious about what's going on (which is fine), or you have the fiery blood of one who listens to rock and metal. Which is even better for this announcement, for you are about to receive a grand facemelt.
Remember the Tauren Chieftains? Also known as Level 60 Elite Tauren Chieftains and L70ETC? The guys that show up at Blizzcon every now and then and perform a WoW-themed rock song like
I am Murloc!
? Well, if you liked them, chances you are going to like this - Ozzy Osbourne, the Prince of Darkness, one who
challenged the Lich King
himself for that title... This very man is going to perform live on Blizzcon 2009! Links below, full announcement - after the break, as usual.
Blizzard Official Announcement
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:

Archivist of Ulduar, Auriaya
unfortunately bears no resemblance to the
in Diablo III.
Actually, scratch that. Sonic Screech looks like
makes me think of Sentinel Blast, and
is kind of like Terrifying Screech. But
I have found myself with some time in my hands, and nothing in particular to do, so I thought I'd put another Strategist together. Hoping that somebody actually reads and uses these... ;)
Also, before I actually start writing, I will have you know that this boss is actually rather hard for my guild. I think we might be doing something wrong - it's not that the strategy doesn't work, it's just messy.
2009/07/28 at 5:53 PM
Slow internet, sitting out of raids this week, poor weather for going out... Which means more Strategists this week!
A little known fact about
- Brann Bronzebeard wiped on him. So you better read carefully and not repeat the dwarven explorer's mistake. In addition to this, Kologarn is a mandatory boss, whom you need to kill in order to reach the Keepers' sanctums. And then Yogg-Saron. His dead body will become the bridge to the Observation Ring, and Ulduar's archivist - Auriaya. Body crafted personally by Ignis the Furnace Master, who hopefully lies dead by his forge by the time you get to Kologarn. You are quite a decimating group of raiders, aren't you? :)
Strategist: Assembly of Iron
2009/07/26 at 5:50 PM
Well, I did earn
The Siege of Ulduar
, did I not? Made an entry for each one of the Siege bosses, that I did. Made me wonder how adequate the term "siege" is, when the only Expedition forces are in the base camp and around Razorscale - looks we've been
Ulduar, not besieging it. But that's just my thoughts :)
So this time it's the
Assembly of Iron
. What many people call '
the Iron Council
'. The three Iron Generals represent each of the iron races in the Iron Army (they also love iron).
, the biggest and physically strongest of them all, is an Iron Giant with colossal strength.
is an Iron Vrykul, who has mastered the art of rune magic.
is an Iron Dwarf with a master's touch in the lightning magic, who hates being mocked for his height.
The Assembly of Iron has taken residence in the left wing of the Antechamber of Ulduar, j
Strategist: XT-002 Deconstructor
2009/07/24 at 6:22 PM
Time to deconstruct another boss' strategy! Har har har!
I love silly jokes. They make me... silly. But it's true -
is the subject of today's Strategist. Similarly to the other Ulduar bosses, not a whole lot is known XT, other than the fact that he is the last boss in the Siege of Ulduar, he is a mandatory fight, and his voice is the single reason people wipe on him.
XT-002 is located in the Scrapyard, between the Formation Grounds and the Antechamber of Ulduar. He is another one of
's creations, whom XT considers to be his father. Hence the boyish voice, the diligent exercise and dutiful guard. You need to defeat XT in order to proceed further in Ulduar, even if you skip the optional Ignis and Razroscale. The Deconstructor also has a hard mode.
And now, skipping over the break, let's take a look at He-who-does-not-drop-my-
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
