Cataclysm currency exchange rates {WoW}

Sep 15th 2010 1:07PM They still have to fix the cost of items. 108 Justice Points for a Dreadstone is a bit crazy.

Ulduar proto-drakes will get one-month warning for removal {WoW}

Jun 22nd 2009 1:52PM Putting together three different pieces of information-

1. The Colosseum will have one boss unlocked each week.
2. The "heroic" version of the Colosseum will not be available until the final boss is defeated in the normal version.
3. Proto-drakes will have a one-month warning on when they expire.

QED - They'll kill the proto-drakes after 3.2 comes out. There won't be enough loot from the Colosseum normal-mode to matter, especially since it won't be better than hard-mode Ulduar25.

Noblegarden: Sexy or Sexist? {WoW}

May 1st 2009 1:30PM Yes, it's sexist.

I know that I felt creepy when I spotted a female Troll or whatever, and then spent the next couple minutes following them around while waiting for my bunny-ears cooldown to finish.

The Queue: Close the floodgates again, please {WoW}

Mar 25th 2009 11:19AM Every hard mode in Ulduar has an activation either before or during the encounter - except for Hodir.

Flame Leviathan - Destroy towers before encountering the boss
X-002 - Destroy its heart during the encounter
Iron Council - Kill order of the dwarves
Freya - Pull Freya while her Elders are alive
Mimiron - Push the shiny red button before the encounter
Thorim - Defeat the gauntlet fast enough to keep Sif around
Hodir - Timered :(
General Vezzax - Don't destroy the green crystals.
Yogg-Saron - Tell the immensely powerful watchers that you don't need them to face a nearly omnipotent god from before time began
Algalon - There is no easy mode. He feeds on your tears.

EoHs (not) exchangeable for EoVs at 10:1 on the PTR {WoW}

Jan 9th 2009 10:17AM When I checked on the PTR last night, the Emblem of Heroism vendor was not selling Valor badges. I also didn't see the rare gems that were supposed to be there.

The Emblem of Valor was selling Emblems of Heroism (at a 1:1 ratio) but didn't list the price it was selling them at.

Meet WoW Insider at the Wrath midnight launch {WoW}

Nov 11th 2008 4:32PM Stupid question but, how will we identify the meetup?

I'll be at the Chicago bar with a friend, but beyond that I have no idea.

Ask a Beta Tester: Blacksmithing and socket slots {WoW}

Aug 12th 2008 11:19AM Can an item have both a blacksmith socket and an enchant?

Officers' Quarters: No empty slots {WoW}

Jul 7th 2008 3:42PM A raid group needs a large waitlist to be healthy, especially during the summer. The only solution I've even considered is to give anyone on the waitlist full DKP and attendance. With warlocks able to summon to instances, our waitlist people can do whatever they want as long as they're available with five to ten minutes notice (longer breaks are ok as long as we're told in advance).

It helps greatly with burnout and recruitment. It's very easy to track who wants in just for easy epics and to let experienced raiders not go to the fight they've been killing for six months or whatever.


As far as determining who should go on the raids, the best is to have class leaders handle it. Each officer should be in charge of 4-8 people and figuring out who should go based on the slots available (raid leader tells class leaders how much they need). If there is a swap, arrange it ahead of time (at least ten minutes in advance) so the raid doesn't slow down at all.

Hacked and robbed blind, one guild's cautionary tale {WoW}

Feb 29th 2008 2:29PM Every other instance I know of a guild bank being cleared out and then transferring to another server has been dealt with by the GMs. You really should put in another ticket. The standard GM won't be able to deal with you, but the loot restorers can. The timeframe for returning stuff is one to four weeks.

Pay gold, get title {WoW}

Feb 18th 2008 5:34PM It probably requires Exalted with the Shattered Sun Offensive AND can only be done during the time when the fourth area is unlocked (Sun's Reach Harbor), but before the monument is completed. Read the quests "A Chariatable Donation" and "Your Continued Support" to get an idea of the timing.
