Wowhead Weekly Review (June 28 - July 4)
04/07/2009 alle 16:04
Hey there, this is our seventeenth Wowhead Weekly Review!
Got some interesting stuff this time, including tier 9 discussion, more icons, and a new contest!
Opinions presented in the Wowhead Weekly Review are not necessarily those of Wowhead.com or its staff members.
More Huge News: Faction Change Service Coming
. The news won't stop surprising us! In this case, Nethera announced on Blizzard's official forums recently that a faction-changing service is in the works and will be implemented sometime in the future. However it is not yet known whether it will require a fee, like the paid character name change service or the paid character transfer service. Keep your fingers crossed—we'll know more information in the future!!
Faction-Change Service Q&A Released
. As a follow-up to the faction-change service's announcement, MasterOfDisguise presents us the Q&A Blizzard recently provided to us. As soon as we know more information, to reiterate, we'll keep you posted.
Upcoming Engineer Changes
by MasterOfDisguise. In his blog, he presents us with a plethora of intended changes for the Engineering profession—some of them are really interesting!
by Malgayne. For Wowhead's
, we are celebrating by having a contest! It's a giveaway, and the main prize is a chicken mount! See the contest page for more details
Wowhead Scheduled Maintenance (7/7, 2am EST)
. OMG, alert the press—Wowhead will be undergoing maintenance! Okay...on a more serious note, Wowhead will be down next week for three hours starting at 2am EDT on 7/7. For those of you who are timezone impaired, 2am EDT is 06:00, 7th July UTC—but that's all the math I'm doing for you!
EU loot card giveaway!
. Here we (the Europeans) have finally something to cheer about: as the title indicates, there will be a giveaway contest with WoW.com (formerly WoWInsider) hosting TGC cards. If you are EU and always were depressed about the US-only contests, this might be a fair chance for you!
Warlock Q&A with Ghostcrawler
by MasterOfDisguise. Another one of the 'Class Question and Answer' series has been released and the eager-to-help MasterOfDisguise presents it to us—the Warlock Q&A!.
List of Top-Selling Glyphs by Class
. We have covered this thread in a recent WWR, but as it has been stickied ('stuck' is the correct term I think), we would like to bring it up again! It lists the best selling glyphs for each class (in an unformatted manner). The statistics may vary on each server, however.
Blog - New stuff -
More Goodies from the PTR (Build 10048)
. As the title says, more stuff has been added in for the soon(TM) to come patch 3.2. Check 'em out!
Thread - Tier 9 -
Official prevew of a few T9 armor sets.
. A news-worthy thread full of posts about the upcoming Tier 9 sets.
Thread - Arena 2 vs 2 -
2v2 back on tracks!
. It looks like Blizzard has changed their minds and decided to stagger the their actions on the 2 versus 2 brackets in Arena PvP. See the exact details linked in the thread!
Thread - Pets -
An idea for Hunters and Locks
. He suggests a very nice feature that individualises Hunters' pets and Warlocks' minions in the same manner as glyphs or enchants do.
We were not able to find any interesting theorycrafting threads—but anyone who does is encouraged to contact us!
Thread - Achievements -
Hemet Nesingwary: The Collected Quests
. This is a short but nicely written guide which helps newer and inexperienced players through the quest heap which is especially confusing in Northrend.
Thread - Paladin - Protribution -
Prot DPS - Protribution Guide
. One of 'many' guides to be covered this week! This one is about a Protection-Retribution mix of talents. It also has a 'rotation' schedule (if you can talk of a rotation) and a FAQ along with few other things.
Thread - Paladin - Shockadin -
The Shockadin FAQ thread!
. In this thread, (s)he lays out her/his FAQ written off personal opinion. It is directed at newer aswell as more experienced players.
Thread - Shaman - Restoration -
Resto PvP Guide
. In this thread, he lays out a nicely written guide on how to PvP as a Restoration Shaman saving his mates' butts.
Thread - Warlock - PvP -
Warlock Guide: PvP
. As he announces in his latest
, he has updated his Warlock guide to PvP. However, he asks you not to think of it as complete
due to the soon (tm) arrival of patch 3.2.
Thread - Security -
How to not be "hacked"
. In this guide to security he provides us with tips and to-do's for protecting accounts and the own PC/laptop.
Thread - Death Knight - Opinion -
The Slow Kill In The Cold - Tales of a Frost Tank
. In this thread, disguised as a tale, he not only shares his opinion on the talents in the Frost tree but also on the other specialisations.
Thread - Paladin - Divine Plea -
Divine Plea Rotation: Surviving the Healing Handicap
. In this thread he talks about dodging the healing sacrified for more mana. A good read!
Lore and Fan-Fiction
The History And Lore Behind The Classes
. We also may have covered this thread in an earlier version of the WWR, but as it has now been recognised (see the glyphs), we bump this up. It is a thread written in a way similar to
History and Lore Behind the Races
, but this time it covers the classes in the World of Warcraft.
Project Lore Soloing - The Way of the Pug & Mount Run
. Apparently the two guys of Project Lore have finished their mount runs.
Light and Death (Page 17)
. Yet another time the story continues with Morec. But if things go bad, readers might have to wait some time for Page 18.
Light and Death (Q/A)
by MorecofRivendare. It's been time for a 'Question and Answer' thread about the 'Light and Death' series, so MorecofRivendare has released it!
Blizzard trademarks Cataclysm
. There's some wild assumptions on the next-to-come expansion after Blizzard recently has trademarked 'Cataclysm' whatever that may be. An user also claimed to have seen a test realm appearing on his realmlist; however, as I checked, the image seem to have been deleted. Maelstrom for expansion, yay or nay?
The eighteenth Weekly Review will be released the next week as usual! See ya!
You, of course, are free to
whenever you think a thread could be included in the next Weekly Review! Please note we don't accept everything, but we'll take your suggestion into consideration ;)
