WRUP: A small stuffed animal and interesting pieces of jewelry

Every week, just at the start of the weekend, we catch up with the WoW Insider staff and ask them, "What are you playing this week?" -- otherwise known as WRUP. Join us to see what we're up to in and out of game, and catch us in the comments to let us know what you're playing, too!

If you'll allow me a moment to fabricate an email from a fan, I offer you this forgery:

Dear Fox,

I read last week's WRUP about how to find a the lady of your dreams at BlizzCon. That's all well and good for the men in your audience, but I'm a lady myself! How do I find true love at a convention filled with nerds?

Good question, female reader I just made up. You're probably just a [redacted], and men don't need that. Thankfully, though, you can be fixed by being something you're not. No more lonely nights watching a rerun of Dallas with a pint of ice cream!

Remember, men really love their sports teams. Now, since you're female, you're prevented from knowing anything about sports at all because that section of your brain is loaded with all sorts of information about lipstick or whatever. So at least learn about an attractive sports player, since we're pretty sure a woman of the '80s like you can handle at least that. So yeah, how about Brady Quinn, am I right? Wait, does he even still play? I don't follow sports, you understand. I just follow players I find attractive.

Anyway. If you're one of those people in this town who could really use good news, this is your lucky day. WRUP is just past the break, and there are plenty of eligible men waiting for you! Let's tap that gold mine!

Gold Capped: Epic gems must be in patch 4.3

loot box epic gems
Every week, WoW Insider brings you Gold Capped, in which Basil "Euripides" Berntsen aims to show you how to make money on the auction house. Email Basil with your questions, comments, or hate mail!

Now that we know that patch 4.3 will be the final Cataclysm content patch and contain the means with which to kill Deathwing, we know beyond reasonable doubt that epic gems will be released in that patch.

It's unreasonably doubtful that Blizzard would introduce epic gems before 4.3, and aside from not introducing epic gems at all, that's the only option that would lead to my prediction being wrong. That said, there's tons of stuff we don't know about how this will work. Here's a big one: Where will epic gems come from? If we knew that, intelligent auctioneers would start stockpiling ages before the patch in preparation.

Breakfast Topic: How will you use the transmogrification feature?

Yesterday, we got huge news out of Irvine (via Germany): Last week's teaser screenshot showing three ethereals is actually a glimpse at new features coming in patch 4.3. And of all these new features, the one that seems to have the most players talking is transmogrification -- that is, being able to alter the appearance of the armor you currently have equipped.

Being a WoW fanatic, I can't help but dream of the possibilities. How would you use the transmogrification system? Is there a specific gear set that you want to transmogrify into? For me, it's all about those priest tier 6 shoulders -- the height of shadow priest fashion.
Brace yourselves for what could be some of most exciting updates to the game recently with patch 4.3. Look at what's ahead: new item storage options, cross-realm raiding, cosmetic armor skinning and your chance to battle the mighty Deathwing -- from astride his back!

WRUP: Pandaren vs. Ethereals

Every week, just at the start of the weekend, we catch up with the WoW Insider staff and ask them, "What are you playing this week?" -- otherwise known as WRUP. Join us to see what we're up to in and out of game, and catch us in the comments to let us know what you're playing, too!

On Thursday, Blizzard uploaded a curious new picture to its Facebook page. It's called "Glimpses," and it shows three ethereals in a building that looks identical to Cordell's Enchanting in Stormwind. But a glimpse of what? Patch 4.3? The next expansion?

The picture set off a flurry of speculation. One intrepid soul decided to treat the names as anagrams, converting Vaultkeeper Razhid to "hide a true leak," with "remaining letters ZPRV." I tried playing around with the letters myself, and all I can seem to make out of it is "Bill is The Mole." What do you think that means?

Of course, a lot of people out there are wondering whether or not ethereals will play a major part in the next expansion. So, in addition to the "What aRe yoU Playing" question, this week, we asked our columnists a very simple followup question:

Pandaren or ethereal?

Ethereal5666 (60.3%)

WRUP: This week, in cat-related news

Every week, just at the start of the weekend, we catch up with the WoW Insider staff and ask them, "What are you playing this week?" -- otherwise known as WRUP. Join us to see what we're up to in and out of game, and catch us in the comments to let us know what you're playing, too!

Welcome to this week's What aRe yoU Playing, brought to you by Catertainment! And you're in for quite a treat -- today's column is the cat's meow!

Item! What has got those cool cats drawn to the Firelands like it was filled with catnip? Why, I'd be willing to bet it's Fandral's Flamescythe, the hot new Firelands weapon that turns kitty druids into flaming kitty druids! Those pesky hunters may want to get their paws on it, but giving it to them -- why, that'd be a cat-astrophe!

Item! What WoW Insider cat lover just had his favority pussy groomed? Why, it's Mat McCurley, who reports his cat's hot new "do" is purrfect!

That's all our items for today, but don't you all go taking a cat nap, now! We've still got WRUPing to do! This week's bonus question: "When do you expect patch 4.3 to come out, and what kind of raid or 5-man instance do you expect it to have?"
