Patch 3.2: The day we find out who stands in Yogg clouds

Like me and my guild, you may have found yourself wiping on Yogg-Saron phase 1 lately because there are people who just can't seem not to stand in clouds. We've been basically begging for a Failbot for this particular phase because, let's face it, when we have no way of finding out who's clipping or standing in clouds, it's impossible to berate them for it over Vent. And the general yell of "STOP STANDING IN CLOUDS" is grating for everyone who's not doing it.

Thankfully, Blizzard has heard our pleas. In the patch notes for Patch 3.2, a small note under the Ulduar section informed us that the clouds will be "more vocal" to players who stand in them.

Then again, by the time Patch 3.2 comes out, we might not even be running Ulduar as much, and people will have learned not to step in clouds ... well, probably not the latter. But still. Thanks for this, Blizz. It'll help separate the wheat from the chaff. And guildies from the raid group.


Patch 3.2 will bring about a new 5, 10, and 25 man instance to WoW, and usher in a new 40-man battleground called the Isle of Conquest. WoW.com will have you covered every step of the way, from extensive PTR coverage through the official live release. Check out WoW.com's Guide to Patch 3.2 for all the latest!

Insider Trader: Where have all the clouds gone?


Feeling a little gassy now that Thanksgiving has come and gone? Not if you're an engineer -- because gas clouds (as well as other types of clouds) are curiously nowhere to be found. At the time of this post , the disappearance of felmist, windy cloud, swamp gas and arcane vortex spawns was being widely and dramatically mourned by engineers. Engineers have been busily harvesting the clouds for motes since patch 2.3, when their handy-dandy Ultra-Spectropic Detection Goggles (which require Engineering [350] to equip) began showing the location of nearby clouds on the minimap.

Where did all the clouds go? Apparently, something significant changed when the servers reset for the debut of Arena Season 3. After the initial round of harvesting (when many engineers reported successful sweeps of their regular extracting routes), the clouds stopped respawning. Many players report seeing what appear to be the shadows of the clouds -- but alas, no clouds to actually cast the shadows.

Just as engineers were beginning to enjoy the fruits of their labors extracting motes with their Zapthrottle Mote Extractors, the outlook seems to have turned ... well, decidedly uncloudy. Engineers are clamoring for a blue response on both the profession and bug forums alike, but no official response has yet been posted. Most in-game petitioners have been told that the situation was working as intended, and several players report email replies indicating that Blizzard is aware of and investigating the "situation." So no, your goggles aren't broken -- stay tuned to the official forums for possible updates!

Read on for tips on spotting pure water pools and a handy way to search for crafted items that have had stat updates in patch 2.3.
