Last Week in WoW: Spying on your WoW edition

warlock in water
Happy Tuesday morning everyone. I suppose first we should acknowledge the story it seems everyone's talking about. Yes. The government is still watching you play WoW. I'm betting they have Wrathion on a watchlist somewhere, that crafty little whelp. Still, for my money, the cooler news is that Ghostcrawler was on our podcast and that patch 5.4.2 is dropping this morning.

With the patch dropping, downtime is scheduled to start at 1 a.m. Pacific time and last until 11 a.m., so you should have plenty of time to read up on all the new stuff from patch 5.4.2, as well as all the other news and guides from the past week. Read on for the usual roundup.

Last Week in WoW: Sad news edition

Happy Tuesday morning, everyone. By now, I'm sure most of you have heard the biggest news. Lead Systems Designer Greg Tiberius Street, better known as Ghostcrawler, is leaving us. Not only that, the Warcraft movie has been delayed until 2016.

But don't get too down. There's still good news to be thankful for. For example, The Daily Blink came out of retirement to comment on Ghostcrawler's retirement. We also got some pretty juicy news for the next expansion. For all of that and more, read on. Downtime today is limited to rolling restarts, but it never hurts to take a break.

Last Week in WoW: Boat bugs edition

Happy Tuesday morning, everyone. I'm running a little low on sleep these days. I blame Alex for making me buy Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag, because I cannot stop playing it. This thing is the awesome open world Pirate game I always wanted. Not only that, it has better hilarious boat-related bugs than WoW does. And WoW has had some pretty hilarious boat-related bugs.

If open world pirate games aren't your thing, you joyless human being, don't worry. We have plenty of WoW news to keep you busy. Not only is BlizzCon news still trickling in, but patch 5.4.2 is on the PTR and has some intriguing changes in store. As of this writing, there's no announced downtime for WoW, but it's never a bad idea to catch up. Read on for the usual roundup.

Last Week in WoW: BlizzCon bound edition

Last Week in WoW
Happy Tuesday Morning, everyone. I took a small road trip this past weekend, which means I'm doing a lot of last minute scrambling to get ready for BlizzCon before my plane leaves. If you're in the same boat, I salute you as a comrade-in-arms. If you're staying home for BlizzCon, have no fear. We'll keep you up to date.

That said, we still have a few days until the con goes down. Why not make the wait shorter by catching up on WoW news? We have articles on stuff you'll want to know to get ready to watch or attend BlizzCon, as well as the latest news, hotfixes, and guides for getting ahead in WoW. As of this writing, maintenance has only been announced for connected realms, but even if you're not from one of those realms, now's a good a time as any to take a break, right? Read on.

Last Week in WoW: Video unrelated edition

Happy Tuesday morning, everyone. Have some chickens to amuse you while we discuss the week's news. With BlizzCon less than a month away, we're hearing more and more news about everyone's favorite gathering. In game, the patch 5.4.1 PTR is upon us, and includes new models for the Crusader Murloc pet and the new hippogryph mount. Alas, it is not the mythical patch 5.5 (which, mind you, may or may not exist at all), but it may bring us closer to said patch.

If neither of those tidbits interest you, fear not. We have plenty of new class guides, lore tidbits, and other guides to keep you busy. Downtime today is limited to rolling restarts at 7 a.m. pacific for most realms, though Black Dragonflight and Skullcrusher will be down from 3 a.m. to 11 a.m. If you're from one of those realms, or just need a break, read on for stuff to keep you occupied.

Last Week in WoW: Everybody must get Hearthstoned edition

Last Week in WoW Everybody must get Hearthstoned edition

Happy Tuesday morning, everyone. At first it seemed like all the big news this week was going to happen outside of WoW. Hearthstone got some big news, we learned more about BlizzCon rewards, and we even have a release date for the Warcraft movie.. But Blizzard came through in the 11th hour with a patch 5.4 developer roundtable, delivering lots of insight, tidbits, and even hints of future changes and content. Me, I'm pretty excited to hear about the inventory fixes, and vindicated to hear them admit that melee have it harder in most raid encounters.

If that news isn't your favorite, don't worry, there's a lot of news to go over from the past 7 days. You're sure to find something you like. Downtime today starts at 5 a.m. Pacific time and is slated to last 6 hours, so you have time to catch up. Read on for the latest updates.

Last Week in WoW: Classy edition

Last Week in WoW Classy edition
Happy Tuesday Morning, everyone. While patch 5.4 continues apace, there's been plenty of news of upcoming features, out-of-game stuff, and more. We've also got the first columns of some of our new class columnists, so if you've been missing mage, rogue, or hunter articles, you'll want to check those. If you're aren't big on those classes, check out some of our new patch 5.4 guides or get the latest news on which raid wings are unlocking.

Downtime today is scheduled from 2:30 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Pacific time, so you should have some time to catch up. Read on for the latest.

Last Week in WoW: Meditating on the news edition

Last Week in WoW
Happy Tuesday morning, everyone. Patch 5.4 is well underway, and Blizzard's been pretty busy. So have we, of course, covering all the hotfixes, writing new guides, and even covering some of the interesting news come out of Blizzard's other games, such as some long-anticipated but somehow still unexpected news about Diablo III's most contentious feature.

Downtime this morning is regulated to a series of rolling restarts at 7 a.m. PDT, but why not take some advice from the monks? Relax, sit back, and meditate on some of the past week's news. We have the usual roundup for you below.

Last Week in WoW: Jaina Proudmoore appreciation edition

Happy Tuesday morning, everyone. Patch 5.4 has been out for a week, and we now know who the new warchief is. In the interest of avoiding spoilers, I won't say here. But I do want to say Jaina Proudmoore is the best and as an avid Alliance player, I will follow her into the gates of hell itself. She is the hero the Alliance needs.

If you're avoiding spoilers, or just want to move on to other stuff, don't worry, there's still plenty of non-spoilery news to be had, patch-related and otherwise. Scheduled maintenance today is slated to begin at 5:00 a.m. PDT and last for 6 hours, so you should have time. Read on for the usual roundup on the latest news.

Happy Tuesday morning, everyone. As you read this, it is likely the servers are already down for the long anticipated patch 5.4.

That's where we come in. Read on for a roundup of the past week's news, which includes lots of juicy patch info and answers to your burning questions about the patch. Then, stay tuned here throughout the day for more news and guides to help you get an edge on the new patch.

Last Week in WoW: In the cards edition

Last Week in WoW In the cards edition
Happy Tuesday morning, everyone. There were a lot of big stories this week. It's hard to know where to begin. If I had to pick one, I'd say the biggest was probably the purported Blizzard trademark registration for The Dark Below. Is it real? Is it a hoax? Some people (including myself) thought it might be a Diablo 3 expansion, but this website teasing the name Reaper of Souls may have taken that off the table. There's also strong evidence it may be a hoax. Of course, there's also strong evidence that it's not a hoax. In the end, I'm putting my money on Corgis unleashed. That Corgi pet will be mine, I swear!

I guess there was other news, of course, like that whole epic patch 5.4 trailer release. Me, I'm all about the Corgis though. Or the cards. The Heartstone closed beta has also begun, and most of your intrepid WoW Insider staff are in it, so expect to see more news and previews of the game in the coming weeks. In the meantime, read on to see what we've already uncovered. Downtime today starts at 3 a.m. PDT and lasts 5 hours, so you should have time.
