Live Patch (13329): The Shattering is Imminent!
2010-11-21 в 23:34
It looks like a new patch will be hitting the live servers this week, and all indications are that this will be the moment we've all been anticipating for years.
If you're trying to finish up Loremaster, capture some last-minute screenshots of your favorite zones, or enjoy Barrens chat one more time before it's split into two smaller Barrens chats, you'll probably want to do that within the next 24 hours
. This is, of course, assuming that the patch gets applied on Tuesday, as per the usual schedule.
In case you have some spare time, you can check out the spell changes between the current live servers and the latest PTR patch after the break!
Highlights from "The Shattering"
A few minor cosmetic changes have been applied to some zones. Nothing you'll miss.
That class that you like to play was totally nerfed.

Blizzard developer blog: "Why Does Blizzard Hate Healers?"
2010-11-19 в 14:18
Ghostcrawler has just posted the first "Developer Blog" on the new battle.net WoW site, and it deals with a topic close to my heart: healing.
There's been a lot of concern lately about the effect Cataclysm is going to have on healing performance, and the changes Blizzard is making. When you're just looking at spell changes (like
) it's easy to get the impression that everything else is staying the same, and healing is getting worse. This doesn't take into account the whole picture, though—and it's important to read blogs like these to get the full concept of what the changes are going to
like in Cataclysm.
The full text is included after the break, but let me give you a quick summary:
Healers in Wrath had way too much mana.
This doesn't seem like a bad thing, but in practice it meant that most healers pretty much never had to worry about mana, ever—which makes healing boring and one-dimensional. It meant you never had to choose between your
fast, inefficient heal
slower, efficient heal
. Healing became a game of "spam your biggest heal over and over", and th

Legendary - The WoW Video Podcast - The Shattering
2010-11-18 в 13:10
The Shattering is on the PTR, the TSA is in ur gamez, Tol Barad is terrabad, and Darnell's journey to Ironforge.. last night's episode of LEGENDARY was awesomazing. The best and worst part was that we hit 850+ live viewers, which is great, right? Until they all start spamming chat and destroying Lore and my connection, forcing me to reboot and stop recording 5 simultaneous HD reruns of America's Next Top Model *shakes fist angrily* ..it was like a DDOS attack composed of Chuck Norris jokes.

The patch we've all been waiting for, 4.0.3a, which will activate 'The Shattering' event with the destruction of Azeroth, is currently live for testing on the
Public Test Realms
. With Cataclysm's release date getting closer, there is much speculation on when this event will hit the live servers.
Blizzard has stated that The Shattering is

Once again I am breaking the unspoken "Never post about any games that are not WoW" rule, but the guys over at ZAM asked me to mention this and they have some pretty impressive content going up over there.
ZAM has just rolled out

Jeahr, Inde and Kattar
, the old admins from Guild Wars Guru and GW2 Guru. ZAM's really lucky to get them, they run a tight ship.
There's also a bunch of really cool content up there, including a
