WoW Insider has the latest on the Mists of Pandaria!

Lead Encounter Designer Ion Hazzikostas joins Twitter

The latest among the developer team to join Twitter is Lead Encounter Designer Ion "Watcher" Hazzikostas, Twitter name @WatcherDev. Ion's principal role on World of Warcraft is, as his title would suggest, overseeing the design of raid and dungeon bosses and encounters. He and his team put together and test all the fights we face, from the most simple dungeon bosses to the hardest heroic encounters.

Ion's been with Blizzard since 2008, prior to which he worked in law as an associate in a Washington, DC-based firm. Since joining Blizzard he's worked not only on raid boss and encounter design, but also on class design and balance, the achievement system, and more. If you want to see more information on what Ion's been up to lately, and in the past, you can rifle through all WoW Insider's articles relating to his famously wordy forum posts! In the meantime, head over and follow him on Twitter.
