Firefox Persona for Wowhead
2009/05/28 at 12:26 PM
Unlike most of my blogs, this one is going to be very short, for all I bring after almost a week of no Internet, is just news about something little I created.
If you use Firefox, you might have noticed that recently a new feature was released -
. Personas are like small skins for your Firefox browser - they only change the header (the area where all the buttons are, along with the search and address bars) and footer (the little area on the very bottom of your Mozilla). You only need to

the plug-in, and then you are free to use any Persona from the
by simply clicking on it. No restart, no installation needed.
Well, now that I have familiarized you with this feature, here is the news - I have made a little (and very simple!) Persona for Wowhead.

Some of you might remember the
pandemic from a few years back, when
became the Number 1 cause of death throughout the entire World of Warcraft.
Some of you (mostly those living in the Americas I guess) might be thinking about the recent
H1N1 outbreak, which is still a reason for a lot of worries among most families in not only the Americas, but other continents as well.
But have you even imagined that the two events may not only be similar in character, but that the players' behaviour during Hakkar's madness could be used by U.S. Department of Homeland Security? Well, it's not only possible, but it's happening!

Update: Patch 3.1.2 introduced new mounts and reduced costs for existing mounts! See the

The cold winds of the north blow over the frigid icy glaciers of
. The sun barely reaches the frozen lands with its rays. The Lich King gathers his power, his Scourge minions planting destruction everywhere. Bloodthirsty Vrykul shout promises to eviscerate adventurers too foolish to enter their lands. Yet, in the northernmost corner of the great glacier, something defies the self-proclaimed true king's threats. Workers' sweat flows like rivers, as hired hands build a Coliseum. Mounts scream in pain or triumph as their riders - men and women representing all the peoples of Azeroth - fight to prove their worthiness to members of the
and their own war factions.
Despite the imminent danger of the Lich King, despite the hatred between King Varian and Garosh Hellscream, and despite the weather for which "harsh" would be a soft word, the heroes of Azeroth battle to determine who will face the h

Let's do a quick time travel. Let's travel back to the hot summer and autumn months when Blizzard first started feeding us on Wrath of the Lich King news. News around the Vrykul and the Kvasir were one of the most commented topics, and the general opinion was "I love it, we are finally getting vikings in WoW!". I guess some people never liked it, but I have been a long-time fan of vikings, Norse gods and mythology, and the like. So seeing how much Northrend was influenced by the Nordic cultures and traditions made me one really happy panda. But it wasn't until a little over a month ago that I realize how much Nordic stuff is there actually in WoW.
With the upcoming release of Ulduar, we get even more references to the aforementioned cultures. I think it is about time I share my findings with you. I am not going to cover the different references in a great detail; just enough so you understand what is in the core of the idea. If you know more than what I have written, or if you have something interesting to share - fire at will, I think a lot of us here love learning new cool stuff!
So, shall we dwell in the frozen secrets of Nordic Northren
Raider Apprentice - Addons

You ever found desktop so full of icons that you almost need to use a search engine to find the folder you need? Or your desk/working place literally hidden by mountains of papers, hole-punchers, sticky notes, staplers, folders, binders, pens and other office tools? Well, things like that can happen in WoW too, and I am an unfortunate victim of Addon addiction.

But before we move to the sets, there is a little teaser I would like to toss in here. Remember how at the end of each Arena Season the top teams were rewarded a Nether Drake mount with 310% bonus speed? Well, the reward for the next Arena Season is going to be a

Title Status: Achieved!
2009/03/04 at 2:44 AM
I remember back in first days of Patch 3.0 and Wrath of the Lich King, when all the new titles were introduced, and all the fuss they created—all of a sudden people were rushing back to the old world, farming reputation, running instances...it was madness (
). I remember how I was digging through forums and websites, looking for all the titles, trying to learn whatever I can.
So now, a few months later, when everything is settled down, I decided to compose a nice little summary of all the obtainable titles. Just to make things easier for everybody else who, like me, decides to go and dedicate hours and hours to something, just so they can have a little something next to their name.
