It’s the New Year, and 2014 is going to be a big one for World of Warcraft. This November marks the game’s 10-year anniversary and the 20

Gear Changes in Warlords of Draenor
2013/11/26 at 12:44 PM
Blizzard posted a lengthy blog covering all the changes to gear in Warlords of Draenor--broken down into two subcategories, Armor and Non Armor. Click the cut for the full blog, or check out our summary below:
Your gear for armor slots (helms, shoulders, etc) changes primary stats and set bonuses based on your spec. There is no "strength plate" or "intellect plate"--simply plate that changes based on your role. Gear for these primary armor slots will always contain Stamina and Armor, as well as either Agility/Intellect/Strength based on your spec.
Secondary stats for armor will remain unchanged when switching between specs (crit, mastery, haste). Hit, expertise, dodge, and parry are removed completely, and spirit and bonus armor no longer appear on armor pieces.
New secondary stats, in addition to crit, mastery, haste: Amplify, Multistrike, and Readiness.

IRVINE, Calif. – July 25, 2012 –

Blizzard Trademarks "Mists of Pandaria," Next Expansion?
2011/08/02 at 7:00 PM
Put on your tinfoil hats--it looks like an April Fools' joke may become a reality. Last week, Blizzard filed for a trademark for "Mists of Pandaria" under computer software. This is a common practice for the registration of expansion titles; for example, the Cataclysm was filed for trademark on June 26, 2009 and its domain was bought subsequently. Similarly, a Pandaria domain was also purchased last week.
This means that it's possible that the next expansion will be announced at BlizzCon and that it will be Mists of Pandaria.
Let the speculation run wild--what do you guys think? Is this our future expansion or a false alarm? Will the pandarens be a playable race for both sides, a neutral faction even though Blizzard has said that they like factions to be identifiable and distinct for horde and alliance? Or maybe their role will be more of a lore one, focusing on them as quest hubs and a central conflict?
