Cryptozoic announces new WoW card game Clash of Champions

Cryptozoic Entertainment, which puts out the WoW Trading Card Game, has announced a new way for you to enjoy the Warcraft universe with Clash of Champions, a new deck-building card game. This game allows you to take on the role of a major hero of the Warcraft universe such as Thrall, Jaina, King Magni, Garrosh, or Varian Wrynn and fight monsters and epic bosses. As you fight, you level up, and you can add new abilities and loot to your card deck.

As you may expect from the basic outline of the rules, this will be a separate game from the TCG, with new rules and new ways to play, but it sounds like an epic playing experience and a fun way to battle with your favorite characters from the Warcraft mythos.

The new game is expected in spring 2012.

Love is in the Air event plagued by bugs

While Love is in the Air on the calendar, the air is full of grumbles in game as people discover that not only has the holiday changed on them, but a lot of bugs and anachronisms have popped up. Among the most dire:
  • Quests for the faction leader gifts currently point to faction leaders who died in the Cataclysm, including Cairne and Magni.
  • The dailies and main quest chain currently do not function for level 81-85 characters, leaving anyone who has a new 85 or just didn't get around to doing the quests in previous years unable to finish their achievements.
  • It's hard or impossible to buy certain special vendor items due to errors that show up when you click on them.
  • Apothecary Hummel is sometimes not showing up in the LFD tool for level 81-85 characters.
Blizzard is aware of these bugs, and blue poster Nephadne has posted a list of FAQs on the customer service forums that address many of the changes and bugs, including workarounds for the latter two issues listed above. She's also assured everyone that these bugs will be fixed either with hotfixes or when patch 4.0.6 drops. Read on after the break for the full text of Nephandra's FAQ.

This is it. The last Friday before the last weekend for our last kiss in Wrath of the Lich King. This is when we have our last hurrah, when we run down the bucket list to make sure we've done everything we can to prepare for the Cataclysm.

If you're not sure what to expect next week, check out our guide to the Cataclysm expansion. There's a lot going on right now, so let's get into the heart of it.

Ask a Faction Leader: The Brothers Bronzebeard

WoW.com's prestige in the community has afforded us the opportunity to speak with major Azerothian leadership figures on any subject, and we're letting you, the reader, Ask a Faction Leader!

We recently spoke to Master Mathias Shaw, leader of Stormwind's SI:7, and he shed light on several key issues, including melee hunters, frenemies, cheesemongers, black dragons and erotic fanfiction. In this installment of Ask a Faction Leader, we'll be sitting with the brothers Bronzebeard, dwarven royals who tread very different walks of life.

Our first reader question ...

Dear Brothers Bronzebeard:

Thunder Ale or Rhapsody Malt?

Sincerely,
Alenei di Capernio
Shadow Council

The brothers respond:

Magni: Gettin' dwarves to agree on beer is like gettin' humans to agree on pizza toppings. Not possible. And ye'll never get a dwarf to say his favorite, either!

Breakfast Topic: Lore and story progression via static NPCs

Hemet Nesingwary JrWhen the Burning Crusade first came out, veterans noticed a few things back on Azeroth: Some of our favorite NPCs had disappeared! The wandering Rexxar was replaced by a fellow name Rokaro, and Hemet Nesingwary left Stranglethorn, leaving his son, Hemet Nesingwary Jr., to take over the hunt. More recently, Lady Liadrin has come to Shattrath City, leaving behind Lord Solanar Bloodwrath to guide up and coming Blood Knights in her place. In order to move along a few story lines, Blizzard decided that it was worth moving NPCs to move along the story, and left other NPCs in place with minor alterations so that other people could still experience their old quests.

This, however, isn't the only way Blizzard has dealt with progressing story lines.
