Patch 4.3: Blizzard Explains Void Storage
2011-08-18 в 11:06
How many of us are World of Warcraft hoarders? How many of us have banks that have items that probably should have been thrown out but weren't?
My guess? A lot of us. As luck would have it, however, Blizzard's here to stage an intervention with Ethereals through its new system of void storage! Of course, as they explain in the post below, there's always a catch--items put in here will lose gems, enchants, and so on--but it's perfect for those old school items that you want to transmogrify armor into. Read on to see exactly what void storage will be like and how it will help you out.
The best part? It even comes with a nifty search feature!
For quite some time now, players have been asking for a location in which to store important keepsakes including treasured armor sets, unique quest rewards, and gifts from friends, as well as other valuable items they\u2019ve collected on their journeys throughout Azeroth.
This is a feature we\u2019ve wanted to add to the game for a while, so we\u2019re excited to announce that, thanks to the ingenuity and entrepreneurship of the Ethereals, a new long-term storage option will soon be available to completionists and collectors
News Round Up: Transmogrification Will Require You to Own Items, Blizzard CMs Have Lives, and More
2011-08-18 в 09:32
There were a lot of blue posts yesterday and I think it's only fair that we post them up. They answer a lot of questions in general about these new features that were announced such as transmogrification.
These posts confirm that you will need to own the items already in order to transmogrify into them--one of the most discussed aspects of the new system. This will be a letdown for some. It makes perfect sense as it will encourage players to revisit dungeons and raids that many have never seen, but for those of us who raided when they were current, it is a letdown if we have deleted our sets. I know I deleted all my sets come Cataclysm simply because I had zero bank space for anything thanks to all the WotLK sets in there. I will now have to recollect them all it appears!
Patch 4.3 Sneak Peek at Gamescom 2011
Everything we've already heard, but from Bashiok, who is undeniably much cooler than random internet transcripts.
The gamescom 2011 convention is underway in Cologne, Germany, and the first day kicked off with a few big patch 4.3-related announcements for World of Warcraft. Here's a quick summary of the features and content tha
Blizzard at Gamescom: 4.3 Announced, Deathwing, Armor Customization, Diablo 3 News, and More
2011-08-17 в 10:31
So things just got really serious--4.3, which was a huge mystery, is now pretty much unveiled at Gamescom. When speaking to Kotaku and Gamona.de, Tom Chilton was very open in just how much content the patch would have for WoW players. " has a whole bunch of content," he said, "three dungeons for five player instances and a new raid instance culminating in the Deathwing fight."
Of course, it's not just dungeons to be excited for. Those ethereals we mentioned a week and a half ago? They're for what most of us only dreamed in our biggest dreams and Blizzard previously said was impossible: armor customization. "We have a wealth of armor sets we created that people no longer use," Chilton said, explaining why they had chosen to add it in.
What we know about 4.3:
Deathwing in 4.3
According to Kotaku: "The Deathwing fight will be the most epic boss encounter to date, including a battle phase that takes pla

Major changes to threat today were hotfixed in. And when we say major, we mean major--basically it's a non-factor from this point on.
Threat generation for all tanks has been increased to 500%, up from 300%. This applies to

Real ID Party System No Longer Going Premium
2011-08-16 в 10:36
Blizzard announced that their Real ID cross realm party system is now out of beta testing. Apparently it's here to stay as a free service rather than the initially speculated premium one--good news to those of us who made frequent use of this service. Of course, this shouldn't come as any surprise given both its popularity as a service and the negativity it was met with when it was announced as potentially premium only.
We\u2019re happy to announce that the testing period for World of Warcraft's new Real ID Party system is now complete, and the feature is now officially live! We received a lot of great feedback from the community throughout the course of our testing, and we appreciate everyone taking the time to share their thoughts and experiences with us.
For those who haven't yet had a chance to try it out, the Real ID Party system allows players to invite Real ID friends of the same faction to a 5-player normal or Heroic dungeon, regardless of what realm their friends are on. This new feature makes it easier than ever for real-life friends to play together, and it's available to all World of Warcraft players at no additional charge -- all
Blizzard 2011 Global Writing Contest
2011-08-15 в 15:44
Blizzard just announced their writing contest today--of notable interest is the fact that it's now one month instead of two months to get your piece done! You better not get writer's block with that kind of deadline, eh?
Blizzard Entertainment is proud to present the 2011 Blizzard\u00ae Global Writing Contest!
You sit at your typewriter, hands frozen in fear by the sound of crumpling paper from the darkness behind you. Shadows of broken quills encroach on your sight's periphery but slither out of view when you turn toward them. Summoning your courage, you lash out at the apparitions before they fade, only to awaken in a cold sweat with pencils and pens gripped tight in your clenched fists. You know what this dream foretells: the 2011 Global Writing Contest is upon us!
The Prophecy of the Unblinking Eye portends of a time when writing contest judges, mad with ocular fortitude from judging the 2009 and 2010 Global Writing Contests, would brazenly unleash the powers of the Ocunomicon. Seeking rituals to infuse themselves with the twisted souls of fel ocularians, they look to wield powers not meant for this or any other contest. But the sacr
Free to Play: Getting the Most out of Starter Edition Accounts
2011-08-14 в 12:07
Last month, Blizzard introduced free-to-play Starter Edition Accounts. With these accounts, players could level up to 20--of course with some restrictions--and play for free indefinitely. It's an easy way for new players to test out the game, but it's also gained popularity among twinks who are looking for even more of a challenge with in-game restrictions. We've covered all the things you can and can't do on a trial account below.
Activating an Account
Players can get a Starter Account edition by visiting the home page, receiving a Recruit-a-Friend invitation, or through a trial key obtained from other Blizzard products.
Once signed up, you will be prompted to download the game, which can be played as the streaming client downloads data in the background.
Previous trial accounts made before 4.2, which had expired, are permanently reactivated. Characters level 20 and below on these accounts can be played again.

News Round Up: Tyrande Whisperwind, Tier 11 Acquisition, and More
2011-08-12 в 19:20
It was an unusually slow Friday today, but it looks like Blizzard has posted the latest story to their lore section--this one is on Tyrande, one of the more overlooked leaders in World of Warcraft's lore scene.
In some exciting Wowhead news, we have a sweepstakes coming up next week that will give our users a chance at some fabulous gaming gear. We'll talk more about that once it's live, but I figured I'd give everyone a little heads up!
On Epics for Casual Raiders
We've offered players who don't raid a reasonable way to gear up, and achieve high levels of power. The JP\/VP system makes a lot of sense to us, and gives everyone a pretty good personal progression track in addition to loot drops, and we feel pretty good about the system as it stands. That doesn't necessarily mean that we think that full sets are a necessary part of that picture, though.
We still want to preserve some of the most prestigious PvE loot for players who face down raid content (even if it's a tier behind), and we feel that completing a tier set means that a raid needs to fit in there somewhere. That design makes sense to us, and we want to preserv
News Round Up: Ethereals Are Back in Blizzard Teaser
2011-08-11 в 11:47
So Blizzard just posted a really weird picture to their Facebook of ethereal NPCs. A blue posted it with no explanation as presumably a teaser. At this point, it's probably a hint for either 4.3 or the next expansion; in particular, maybe it even hints towards a redone Outlands or further character customization. Whatever it does mean, though, it's pretty crazy.
Curiouser and curiouser...

Latest hotfixes have been posted, including a previously undocumented change to the dailies for the

Instead of one elemental spawning, three now spawn; this should make getting the achievement way easier as many people still didn't have it (despite doing the dailies every day). It was completely RNG and some servers didn't even have an elemental switch yet.
Latest Hotfixes (8\/10)

4.2.0A Patch Notes
2011-08-08 в 17:48
Blizzard has been pretty quiet lately, but they have just posted some new patch notes for the latest live mini-patch 4.2.0A. This patch contained no new content, items, or any of that fun stuff but instead includes a number of system bugfixes.

Fine Dining: A Guide to the Food and Drink of Azeroth
2011-08-07 в 15:39
No matter how you choose to level or spend your time at 85, it's a sure thing you'll be needing to eat or drink at some point. On one hand, in-game refreshments seem quite simple--they restore health and mana. But there's over 600 types of food and drink in our database. Some require specific levels, some are only sold by one vendor in the middle of nowhere, and yet others can get you completely drunk. We'll cover basic food-related things like what to use while leveling and how to complete achievements, as well as featuring some of the stranger things your character can eat.
Here you'll learn about the basics: what to eat and drink while leveling, what quests grant food and drink, and how to easily complete related achievements.
: Once requiring alcoholic beverages, this now works on any drink in the game. Again, find various innkeepers and bartenders--should be an easy achievement.

: Added in 4.1, you'll need to track down new beverage added in Cataclysm. Here's an easy table:
