WoW Moviewatch: Letters from Icecrown

When I finished watching this movie, I sat back in my chair and thought "Huh." I'm really, really not sure what to make of it. Let me explain.

I like the idea. Flashing still images over a spoken letter with hints of backstory, humor, and maybe even roleplay -- that's all good. The music? Good choice. The accent and actual dialogue are all fine.

The final product just didn't come together for me, though. Since the whole thing felt like a love letter, was the "your loving cousin" a joke? Or had I just wildly misread the relationship? Also, for a spoken word presentation, I'd definitely speed up the actual speech by a lot. I'm sure my attention wandered in a few places. Without some hardcore eye candy to keep the focus, the spoken dialogue needs to happen a lot faster.

I don't know -- what are your opinions? I see a kernel of cool, but I think the pacing needs improvements.

Mists of Pandaria Beta: Beware of Darkmoon Rabbits

DeGei of Dragon Roar (also a participant of a few PTR and beta runs with us here at WoW Insider) has found the infamous Darkmoon Rabbit. What's the Darkmoon Rabbit, you may ask? Other than being the objective of an achievement in Mists of Pandaria, apparently it's bad news. According to DeGei, it has 72 million health and an attack called HUGE, SHARP TEETH that, well, lets the rabbit jump onto your neck and chew through it. You run around uncontrollably, taking a lot of damage, and you can't be healed while said rabbit is chewing through your neck.

Effectively, what we have here is a tiny, rodent-shaped world boss, folks. A world boss the potentially drops itself as a pet.

If you're dying to solo him, DeGei reports that pets don't get the debuff, so it's feasible for a warlock or hunter to pull it off ... but that 72 million health means you should bring something to read if you intend to attempt it.

Huge, sharp teeth, people. You have been warned. Speaking as a man who has a rabbit, you do not trifle with them.

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!
