Jul 15th 2006 9:29AM European client is available to download too :)
Jul 7th 2006 3:04AM I didn't try the mid-summer festival, but the Scourge invsaion is pretty nice (even if it's going to be a bit too long, some places are no longer usable by mid levels (Blasted Lands everyone?)
Jul 5th 2006 3:42PM Having people wait for 6 months is a great idea imo. I'm just wondering how many realms will open AQ in less than this amount of time.
Thanks for spotting the difference, I read them too fast this morning :)
Jun 30th 2006 3:44AM That's te problem of new content. I fear that many guilds will skip MC to try BWL/Naxx (or only do it for a while), without understanding that MC is really a prerequisite to understand how a 40 men instance works. And doing BWL without having at least some of MC gear is being crazy.
And There is only 7 days per week (5 if you don't run on maintenance day and saturday), and MC + BWL + AQ40 + Naxx is going to be a tough schedule... Alts might have problems to gear themselves if nobody wants to go MC...
Jun 20th 2006 4:25AM Oh, it was not like that already in the US?
Anyway, I can't wait at last redoing all my interface that has been completly broken since a week ago :)
May 31st 2006 7:46AM I'm a resto specced druid and as far as I saw when I was playing with damage meters, we can heal as good as them, even better if we keep innervate for ourselves.
Our only problem is that we lack some aggro reducing talent like priest's fade.
We got growl (which is really nice in case of emergency), but the fact that we need to transform into cat and go melee makes it a really expensive ability we can't really use most of the time.
I don't know how is priest gear on test servers but druid gear is really imba, with almost +1000 heal. I don't know many druids that have a gear 75% as good as this one.
May 17th 2006 10:11AM my worst death was probably one night in Azshara. I was heading to Duke Hydraxis. It was late, I was tired and server was going down in 12 minutes and counting.
So I jumped from the first cliff, I had 70% of my life. I stopped, began to heal myself and said "wtf, I don't have time for that" so I jump on the beach... and I die because I missed somtehing like 100hp... I felt horibly stupid for a loooong time.
Now I always heal myself after a jump ;)
Apr 22nd 2006 5:09AM I'm on Burning Legion (EU). We got crashes and chat lag since the 1.10 patch.
That means that starting 7PM, when we try to talk, or form a raid, move someone from a group to an other, etc... We must wait 10+ seconds before the server reacts and send our line to the other clients.
If you add crashes and huge latency issues, most of the guilds have stopped raiding (try and do Vael with 2 seconds of server lag and no "You're Burning" whispers)
The situation is better since last Wednesday, but getting 1 extension day for more than 2 weeks of non play seems like a sick joke from Blizzard. And the issue is not 100% resolved yet.
This company really need to understand customer services or they'll have a big surprise one day.

Apr 3rd 2006 3:17AM Lucky you, European raid instances were reset at... 11:30 PM on friday, with a 6 minutes warning...
European players are pretty pissed off, even more if you count the variouses lags which make BWL unplayable on some servers.
Feb 23rd 2006 3:56AM if I remember well, there is a 4th battleground map in the game. It's called Azshara Crater. As it's internal number is called PvPZone2 (1 being AV, 3 being WG and 4 being AB) I don't know if they still have plans of integrating it yet, but the entrances to it are ingame (only missing the NPCs and the red portal).
The map seems huge and I really don't know what the gameplay could be...
