Razer and Turtle Beach Gear Reviews, News Round Up
The staff at Wowhead got the chance to try out some awesome gaming accessories recently! We've included our reviews below: Ashelia covered the
2012 Edition Razer Naga
and I wrote about
Turtle Beach's Z11 Gaming Headset
. They're both fine additions that will definitely enhance your gaming experience in Azeroth and beyond.
We've also included a news round up as usual after the cut--the level cap has been raised to 90 on beta, so expect a lot more previews soon.
Razer Naga: 2012 Edition
Most of the time a mouse is a mouse. You won't notice anything too different and the features don't matter much. There are numbers like DPI and other buzz words, but unless you're into competitive FPS games, chances are you won't notice a difference.
And then there's the Razer Naga. The folks at Razer

Throne of the Tides Impressions
About couple of weeks ago I posted
about how one of the new Cataclysm dungeons, Blackrock Caverns, felt. If you are interested in it, go ahead and take a look - I found it a pretty cool instance. Not as cool as the one I am about to present to you here and now though. You can read my shorter description
The Throne of the Tides is an 82-84 dungeon, supposedly the second one in the Abyssal Maw - the first one still unnamed and with 0 info about it. If you follow the normal quest flow, you will find the entrance to this dungeon during your last quest in Vashj'ir, after a colossal battle featuring Neptulon the Tidehunter himself. As you approach the giant whirlpool beneath Vashj'ir, you get sucked in, everything swirls around you, and - tadaaa - you drop in the elemental realm of water. Pretty cool looking place, by the way. But let's talk content now!

Cataclysm Dungeon Bosses
A couple of builds ago Cataclysm alpha testers saw the first "real" achievements from the new expansion - achievements different from the random funny placeholders and the standard exploration achievements. I am talking about the dungeon (and some raid) achievements. And although they were cool in and of themselves, to me there was something else intriguing hiding inside them - the knowledge of what the different instances will be called and what kind of bosses they will feature. From this we could even gather some very basic and preliminary information about who (or
) those bosses will be. Interesting stuff for me and other players eager to learn more about the expansion.
So! Let me get to the good stuff and present you with a list of all the bosses in the Cataclysm dungeons, as well as with some short description and links whenever they are available. Keep in mind, only Blackrock Caverns and Throne of the Tides are available for testing (even if some of us managed to sneak inside the Stonecore), so information beyond those 2 (3) will be
virtually non-existent. Also, keep an eye out for a similar blog for raids!

Blackrock Caverns Impressions
The latest news on the Internet - Cataclysm closed beta is hitting us good! But we all know this. What's more important is that since the NDA has been lifted, we'll be showering you with tons of new information, blogs, guide pages, videos, screenshots, and dataz.
just posted some good stuff about the
in Cataclysm (and you should check it out if you haven't), so I decided to go a different route - do a dungeon, see how it feels, give a few screenshots, and a bit of an overall opinion about how the experience is.
Right now the only two dungeons available for testing are
Throne of the Tides
. So I went to my good old friend, the Dungeon Finder, and said "Yo dawg, you heard I like dungeons? Give me a random one!" And so the

Star Trek Online: Impressions From a WoW Player
World of Warcraft has the distinction of being the first MMO that I ever tried to play. Before WoW, nothing had ever interested me for two reasons:
I didn't know many people playing any particular game.
I didn't know the game's lore.
WoW overcame both of those via Warcraft III and the following that game brought with it. I've played WoW for years at this point. I find the game to be one that is "easy to learn, but hard to master". Such games appeal to me greatly.
I occasionally sample other MMOs as well (Auto Assault, Guild Wars, and EVE Online being three such examples), but nothing ever keeps my interest for very long. Largely, this is due to the problems described above. Without having the history of the realm stored in my brain and friends with which to play a game, I find it difficult to immerse myself into a game.
Star Trek Online is only the second MMO created where I know substantial parts of the game's lore before even entering the universe. I am also a science fiction nut and have been awaiting an MMO that introduced space combat in such a way that you had more control of your ship outside of "orbit this and

A Look at League of Legends
Some of you may remember Malgayne's
a while back about the upcoming game
League of Legends
. Well, LoL has been out for a while now, and I have had a chance to test out the game, so I thought I would share my experience with you!
Those of you who aren't interested in anything but WoW have my permission to stop reading now. :)

Forge of Souls Impressions
So it took me a good few days to find some time to test the new 5-man introduced in the latest PTR build. Yep, I am talking about the Forge of Souls, the first wing of the Frozen Halls, which is the composite name of all 3 5-mans in the Icecrown Citadel. Story-wise it is the first section of the Frozen Halls you are going to enter, so I am going to spend a little time talking about the story behind those three dungeons.
Yep, after the break :D
Oh, and let me tell you something. Instance full of creepy flying skulls that seem to be laughing at you while floating around playfully is one of the creepiest things I have ever seen in the game.

Patch 3.2: Call of the Crusade Review
So 3.2 is upon us, and the Argent Coliseum is live! There's been a lot of coverage leading up to the new patch, and a lot of coverage now that it's out, but I thought you guys could use a single rundown for everything—which means that you are about to get a full-blown review of the Call of the Crusade, and all its awesomeness!
First, let me just give you the link to the official patch notes, if you prefer to read them there - and then we move on to the review!
We're going to lay this out for you: for every section, we'll have the patch notes first (click the title to see them), and then the reviews of that section of the patch notes. Then the patch notes for the next section, and so on and so on...
