Hey there, this is our thirty-first Wowhead Weekly Review!
Opinions presented in the Wowhead Weekly Review are not necessarily those of Wowhead.com or its staff members.
Blog - Battle.net -
Battle.net merges mandatory after Nov. 12
Blizzard finally has made a clear decision (if you call updating the Battle.net FAQ a decision :P) on non-Battle.net accounts that a huge percentage of the userbase dreaded for. But Blizzard apaprently has planned in an accommodation: Everyone merging their account with Battle.net will receive a penguin pet. It yet not is clear when this feature will be disabled.

In order to prepare for the 3.3 patch, which recently arrived on the testing servers, Wowhead has opened up its gates to the PTR site.
Thread - Roleplaying Event -

This looks to become a promising and very well organized roleplaying event on the US - Lightninghoof server, timed from October to December. Lightbrynger, leader of the 'To Light Forsworn' guild which is organizing the event, has written up a decent timeplan with lots of subevents!
Blog - T10 Set Bonuses -
Blizzard Releases Tier 10 Set Bonuses on PTR (Updated 10-10!)

Blog - Name Plates -
Blizzard Wants Feedback on PTR Nameplate Changes (Updated!)
This time Blizzard seems to care more for user feedback, in this case it's about the new nameplates being tested on the PTR. This is your opportunity, let them hear your opinion on this topic (and on the T10 set bonuses)!

Blizzard has posted the preview of the long-expected Icecrown Citadel raid, which in fact comes with 3.3. Malgayne has enclosed a handful of pictures, so check them out if you are curious about the lookings of the raid. Bosses also are named!
Blog - Icons -
Return to the Valley of the Icons
Another pack of icons have arrived - plenty of them are quite famous through the items they portrait. Shadowmourne and Quel'Delar are assumed to be among them.
OH WAIT - one of the swords actually looks like a frozen
Don't you reckon, even without the glowing circle that is stuck in the blade (as seen
), it could very well be a redesigned Ashbringer? Of course I could be wrong with that assumption.
Blog - Pit of Saron -
Pit of Saron Impressions
Here we get an overview of one part of the 5 man instance, namely the Pit of Saron. Argent gives us tips and impressions from the dungeon. Apparently it is an outdoor instanced zone you can ride in.

Starting the first part of the speculations around Quel'Delar, ArgentSun lays out the quest line concerning the High (Ancient) Keeper as it is translated on
. Beware of spoilers!
Blog - Gnomes -
Gnomes Back in Gnomeregan?
Here ArgentSun is asking users for their opinion on the rumored return of the Gnomes to their beloved (and usually hated by players) city, Gnomeregan in Cataclysm. Though, the gaming magazine which spread said rumor, also mentioned that the Gnomes might 'accidentally' destroy Gnomeregan (once again) at some point in the future.
