The Crusader's Coliseum!
2009/06/17 at 9:48 PM
Well the updates are just coming fast and furious now. The latest update is about the newest tier in raid content—tier 9—to be released in Patch 3.2!
Apparently the next raid tier to come out will be the Crusaders' Coliseum. No info released yet on what the actual encounters will be like, but there have been a few interesting tidbits—apparently there will be four difficulty levels on this one: a normal and heroic 10-man, and a normal and heroic 25-man. They're unlocking one encounter at a time, one per week, Sunwell-style. They're ALSO creating a system (which has already generated some controversy) which limits the number of attempts you get on each boss per raid lockout, and increases the quality of rewards based on how many "tries" you have left when you down him.
Add in a new 5-man dungeon that rewards
s, and new Alliance-only and Horde-only skins for gear, and this one sounds ESPECIALLY interesting. The blue post is after the break!
Shaman Changes in 3.2
2009/06/17 at 8:35 PM
Class mount spells changes...check!
Class changes...class changes...loading...check now!
That's right, Call of the Crusade is getting juicier and juicier! Must be because of the word "crusade" in it...crusade -- paladins -- awesomeness! Hmm...
Anyway, it looks like the Shamans are getting some love now. I myself have a shaman, and one of the most annoying things in the world (you can all confirm that) is dropping totems, pulling them back, dropping again, making sure none of them is dead, and if there is one, drop it again... It's a pain, brothers and sisters! Well, Blizzard has heard our cries of pain, and is about to make our lives a whole lot easier -- the
awaits us in 3.2, along with spells like
Call of Fire
drops all of our totems at once
, Totemic Call being renamed to
Call of Earth
; and two more,
Call of Air
Call of Water
, which work like the Fire one, just using different presets of totems.
For details and healing juiciness -- read on!
Profession Changes (Buffs) in 3.2
2009/06/17 at 12:26 AM
Looks like Patch 3.2,
Call of the Crusade
, will a patch that brings joy and happiness to many, if not all of us. After the
Argent Tournament Changes
, now we get Profession Changes! Long story short, all of the professions are being buffed.
On a slightly side note, a lot of information starts to leak. Something like this happened about...I believe 2 months before
The Secrets of Ulduar
was released. Do you think we can expect 3.2 around the end of the summer?
Argent Tournament Changes in 3.2
2009/06/16 at 3:49 PM
Update - Check the second quote panel.
Content patch 3.1 brought us not only Ulduar and its secrets, but the Argent Tournament as well - a place where brave heroes of both the Alliance and the Horde fought and still fight for recognition from the Argent Crusade. But more important than any of that (for many players) were the nice rewards - weapons on par with Heroic loot, mounts, pets, tabards, banners... and in the upcoming patch,
! New seal-rewarding dailies, new mounts, pets, tabards, heirloom items, and even a (costly) upgrade for your squire! In exchange of 150 Seals, your loyal follower will be able to serve as bank, mailbox or vendor!
Read on, and find out about the other changes in the preview!

Isle of Conquest Preview
2009/06/12 at 2:56 PM
Alterac Valley, Arathi Basin, Eye of the Storm, Strand of the Ancients, Warsong Gulch...and soon the
Isle of Conquest
Blizzard have finally released some info about their new battleground, to be launched in the next major content patch - 3.2, Call of the Crusade. Apparently the events from the Wrathgate, Undercity, the Broken Front, and a few other locations of conflict have led to something very close to all-out war between the Alliance and the Horde. Even places of no clear significance have become contested zones, certain areas of which are literally ravaged by war! One such place will be the Isle of Conquest, a small island somewhere in the Frozen Sea.
But enough fluffy-talk! Take a look at the entire article, following the link below...

Traveling Changes in 3.2
2009/06/11 at 2:20 PM
EDIT: More changes, this time class-related!
will be trainable at
(as opposed to 20 or 30 right now).
Summon Thalassian Warhorse
(as opposed to 30 now).
Summon Thalassian Charger
(as opposed to 60 now).
, and its speed will be raised to
(as opposed to level 68 and 60% now)
Here is the original post:
Leveling players, rejoice! Zarhym not only presented us with a mount system
, but with new traveling routes as well!
The first change was announced a little while ago - new zeppelin connecting
. Now it was just confirmed to be a change in Patch 3.2.
But the second change is an entirely new story. A coup
Holy Crap: Mount Levels Changed
2009/06/11 at 12:00 AM
So I was out getting dinner and I missed this one, but for those of you who HAVEN'T heard the news yet: Zarhym just announced a radical re-vamp of the mount system.
Among other changes: regular land mounts are now level 20, and epic mounts are level 40. You can now get a flying mount fresh of the rack at level 60. This is going to change the levelling process
—especially in Outland.

World of Critcraft
2009/06/10 at 7:09 PM
Okay bear with me, guys—this one takes a little while getting in.
Secret of Mana
, two of your three characters have magic, up to a maximum of 99 magic points at a time. Your offensive caster has an MP absorb spell, but aside from that, the only way to restore your magic points mid-dungeon is to use a Fairy Walnut, which restores 50 MP. You can only hold a maximum of four.
By limiting the selection of mana-restoring items to one item type, which only restores mana in one large chunk, the game has rendered it almost pointless to increase your maximum mana above 50.
Are you with me here?
Shaman Q&A with Ghostcrawler
2009/06/10 at 12:30 AM
Regardless of whether or not you're happy with the job that
Greg "Ghostcrawler" Street
is doing as a Systems Designer, you have to have a lot of respect for the guy for having the balls to get in front of the WoW community—a community that's famous for sending forum moderators home in bodybags—and defend his design decisions.
In the latest move in this direction, the official WoW forums have published a
—this first one for Shamans, though presumably this is only the first of many future updates. I haven't touched my shaman in a while, but I thought this was very interesting. I am
looking forward to seeing what he has to say about the other classes.
