Nov 27th 2011 7:33AM Do any of you know whether there is a cloak in game that is very white and possibly longer than the cloaks you usually get? I would love to have one.

I'm looking for a white cape to round out my RP costume; ideally it should look longer than your average cloak or cape and be very white. Any ideas folks?

Patch 4.1 PTR notes updated for April 12 {WoW}

Apr 13th 2011 6:15AM No, leatrix isn't good for people who have inherently poor pings. Poor Interent connections such as satellite connections, connections through proxies will always be poor. However the TcpAck hack on machines which use windows Vista/7 will report lower latencies on proper broadband connections. I did the registry fix manually and it helped not only the reported lag but also the actual lag i felt in game. Search tcpack fix on google or your favourite search engine if you use Vista/7, backup your registry and try it. If your pings go up go back to previous registry if it works leave it.

P.S. This registry setting may affect how quick web browsing or P2P is, which is why i say "BACK UP YOUR REGISTRY" before applying this fix.

Gawker hack prompts Blizzard to issue password reset {WoW}

Dec 15th 2010 12:16AM I believe Blizzard encouraging people to click on the links within the email to be extremely irresponsible considering how realistic the hackers (or possible hackers) emails are. They should should encourage subscribers to log onto without a clickable link so they have to type it in to their browser bar. Just my opinion.

Status update on current patch 4.0.1 issues {WoW}

In most cases that is true but not with the Blizzard Downloader. It has been extensively proved within the Blizzard forums and with my own testing that leaving P2P on without having enormous amounts of upload bandwidth (which is not the case with most ADSL connections) will slowdown your download to a crawl. This is because all of your upload bandwidth is being given to uploading data, not acknowledging data has been downloaded which slows it down. Most current bittorrent clients allow you to limit uploads so it doesn't affect speeds while still allowing you to upload data. Unfortunately blizzard has started hiding the actual torrent files in the executable so that people can't use their own BT clients. I'm sure they have their reasons but it is a stupid idea to cripple people who don't have greater than 128K upload speeds.

Oct 13th 2010 4:18PM You should probably turn off P2P, it famously destroys download speed as it uses up all your upload bandwidth.
