Ghostcrawler joins Twitter, nerfs you in 140 characters

Ghostcrawler joins Twitter, immediately disapoints shockadins

Our favorite Lead Systems Designer of World of Warcraft joined Twitter yesterday, meaning we can now get our daily doses of his infamous "nerf me, bro" in 140 characters.

Actually, he's been pretty approachable and has already been answering questions and communicating with players. It'll hopefully end up to be a great medium for him to interact with the playerbase, which hopefully won't go all insane over everything he says (and doesn't say).

Already he's dropped an interesting tidbit when asked if there's a chance they'll remove the requirement to be in a raid when entering an instance: "Yes (meaning there's a chance)."

Follow Ghostcrawler on Twitter at @GregTStreet @Ghostcrawler.

Just don't spam him asking for a pony.

It's open warfare between Alliance and Horde in Mists of Pandaria, World of Warcraft's next expansion. Jump into five new levels with new talents and class mechanics, try the new monk class, and create a pandaren character to ally with either Horde or Alliance. Look for expansion basics in our Mists FAQ, or dig into our spring press event coverage for more details!

Ghostcrawler cleans up two dev chat questions

As you probably noticed if you watched along with us, yesterday's developer chat (with Blizzard's J. Allen Brack and Tom Chilton taking questions from Twitter and answering them on the forums) was a little light to say the least. Rather than answer questions about game balance seriously, the devs chose to make fun of hunters taming druids and do a lot of hinting and winking. Fortunately, we have Ghostcrawler -- he's responded to concerns about two of the questions yesterday over on the forums.

The first is in response to some feedback about what the devs yesterday called "binary" hard modes -- they said that instead of providing multiple levels of difficulty (as in Sarth and his drakes), they'd prefer to have a hard mode either on or off (you'll be able to toggle between the two in Icecrown). This relates to what we just said recently, with different types of guilds looking for different types of content to play. GC replies that the "in-betweens" in terms of difficulty will come with later bosses in normal mode -- if you want to play a challenge without stepping into the hard modes, Blizzard will do their best to make sure that the last bosses on normal give you that challenge. Which makes sense -- bosses should ramp up in difficulty as the instance goes along, and no one would suggest, for instance, that Yogg was nearly as easy as Flame Leviathan.

And GC also talked about one of my favorite (and missed) game mechanics: crowd control.

Your very own Ghostcrawler Promised Me a Pony Shirt

Ghostcrawler promised us a pony. He did. Or... did he? The statement became World of Warcraft-famous when Blizzard developer Greg Tiberius Street, otherwise known as Ghostcrawler, used the statement to end a thread that was guaranteed to become a whine and flame-fest. It also became one of's favorite quotes -- so much of a favorite, in fact, that when BlizzCon rolled around, we fitted our crew with custom-made Ghostcrawler Promised Me a Pony shirts.

It turns out we're not the only ones who like the phrase. Some of our readers who saw us walking around with the shirt asked where they could get one. People who saw the design on the site wrote in, even including some super secret Blizzard blues who presumably want to wear the shirt as an inside joke at the office. Since we love you guys, we're here to oblige. While we won't be able to give you actual shirts, we're making the high resolution file of the image we used available for download right here on the site.
