The Weekly Marmot - Gear vs Skill
2011-03-22 в 17:57
This week I take a stab at the ever-popular Gear vs Skill debate. Which is more important? Can an undergeared player really outperform others just by the virtue of their own ability? Or is WoW really just a game of numbers, and whoever has the bigger ones wins?

Blizzard's Second Q+A Answered, UI Selected for Next Topic
2011-03-22 в 13:32
Blizzard just posted their next set of answers to the
their second global Q+A session they held through the forums
recently. It's mostly a mixture of questions about balance, how PvP has changed from its earlier iterations, and what Blizzard is doing to address PvP in the future. Somehow there managed to not be that much complaining, all things considered!
Of course, there will be more of these sessions coming up in the near future. The topic of user interfaces is slated to be tackled next; starting at 4PM PDT today, Blizzard will field questions from NA players while
they are currently already taking
ones from EU players. We'll edit this post with a link when it goes alive.
Some of the topics of the questions they were asked include:
Death Match Battlegrounds
Will a PvP Guild Ever Progress the Same as a PvE Guild?
The Value of CC in Cataclysm PvP
Hybrid Classes and Their Effectiveness

winged lion mount
which was discovered in the Patch 4.1 files! This mount is apparently "coming soon" to the

Wowhead Introduces Unified Login For Your ZAM Accounts
2011-03-21 в 19:41
Wowhead and other ZAM sites (such as
) will now feature unified login. All of your ZAM Network accounts that use the same email address will have the same master password and premium status. You can even log in to Wowhead with your email address now!
For those without other ZAM accounts, the login process will remain exactly the same.
If you have any other ZAM accounts with the same email address you will need to merge them. The merge process begins the first time you log into any of the affected sites. The first account that you log in with will set the master password for that email address. Thereafter, logging in to any other site with an account that uses the same email address will request a master password so you can merge your accounts.
If you have multiple accounts with multiple different emails, you can also now merge them into one unified account by changing your email address to match. You will be asked for your master password to authorize merging your email addresses. Changing your email address or password on any ZAM site will make similar changes on all other sites you use your unified login with.
Your login information is always st
Blizzard Posts on Cataclysm Raid Content: Is It Too Inaccessible?
2011-03-21 в 16:26
Some fresh new Blizzard posts today discussing the accessibility and difficulty of Cataclysm raid content. While I'm sure most of this will be immediately dismissed as "casuals whining, lol" the posters do bring up some valid points and the Blizzard posters provide some excellent and thought-out answers. Not everyone is in a big guild, or can commit the time to meet certain raiding expectations - is Cataclysm content not intended for them? If not, what content is? Remember when it was the
who got buffed in raid dungeons (
Сияние Солнечного Колодца
How do you feel about the current state of Cataclysm raid content? Too hard? Too easy? TOO SOON?

Blizzard's Ask the Devs #3: User Interface
2011-03-21 в 15:17
Blizzard has opened up yet another Ask the Devs Q+A thread, with this one asking for questions related to the World of Warcraft User Interface. Ever wonder why so many seemingly fundamental functionalities are limited to addons instead of being included in the default interface? Curious about upcoming UI changes in 4.1? Now's your chance to ask!
Be sure to check out Blizzard's previous Q+As:
Ask the Devs Q+A #1: General
Ask the Devs Q+A #2: PvP
As this is a
Q+A, threads will be made available to both US and EU. So far, EU players can submit their questions
and the US thread has yet to be posted. We will, of course, update the blog when it has been - so think of some really good questions!
Do not despair. We post the question for each region at an optimal time for that region (thus why EU posted "early".) In this case, we haven't posted for the North Ame
Changes to Valor Points and "Heroic Dailies" in Patch 4.1
2011-03-19 в 00:55
Blizzard poster Lylirra has just revealed some details about the upcoming changes to the "daily" dungeon system and documents the new procedures for earning Valor Points this way. You can check out the full Blizzard posts after the break, but the basic rundown is:
You can earn
980 VP per week from random Heroic dungeons.
Of that 980 VP, only 490 VP can be earned from tier 1 Cataclysm Heroics. The remaining 490 VP must be earned by running Rise of the Zandalari Heroics (tier 2).
Alternatively, you can reach the 980 VP cap exclusively by running tier 2 Heroics.
The 980 VP you can earn from running tier 1 and tier 2 random Heroic dungeons will count towards your weekly overall cap of 1250 VP.
And, as stated before, if you want to maximize your VP gains, you can still reach the overall weekly cap of 1250 by defeating raid level content.
What do you think? Personally, I'll enjoy being able to run all of my Heroics on a day that I can dedicate the time rather than sitting in queues every day, but how do you think this will affect Dungeon Finder queue dura

I respond to the FLOOD of questions after Weekly Marmot #73
How do I deal with players that just aren't improving?
Why is weekly maintenance still necessary?
Is it possible to raid with a hearing impairment?
New Ghostcrawler Blog: Raid Progress
2011-03-18 в 11:36
In his latest developer blog, Ghostcrawler talks about progression raiding. Aptly timed after some hotfixes to Cataclysm encounters last night, he addresses what Blizzard feels is the right and wrong way to strike balance in the heart of their raiding players. His major argument is that content is always being nerfed--whether through the raiders themselves acquiring better gear or Blizzard developers retuning encounters after their release. Moreover, he feels that everything is going as expected as this level of content starts to wrap up, citing pick-up groups on servers and guilds attempting encounters as positive signs that the first set of Cataclysm raids were a success.
Check out his thoughts on the state of raiding, progression, and the balancing act that ultimately comes into play with each set of new PvE content after the break.

PTR Shows New Daily Dungeon System + New Wowhead Feature: Event Calendar
2011-03-17 в 18:15
There are a lot of in-game events nowadays. There are Call to Arms for battlegrounds some of us still haven't set foot in, the Darkmoon Faire is always coming and going, and then there are things like actual holidays and fishing tournaments. Keeping track of them can be confusing--or at least it
confusing. That all changes today as we've now added
an event calendar
to Wowhead that will show you what's going on in Azeroth right from the comfort of your own browser.
Since it was an otherwise slow day, we also hopped on the PTR to confirm whether or not the daily dungeon had been changed--and it has! Players will now be able to do seven dungeons a week instead of one dungeon per day. Cue sighs of relief from everyone, I'm sure. I'd personally rather do seven dungeons in a row with a group of guildmates over the weekend than squeeze one in every day.
There were some new graphic setting options[
