Last Week in WoW: The Parting Glass

Happy Tuesday morning, everyone. Life is full of endings and partings. For example, Love Is In the Air is over for another year, and the Mists of Pandaria expansion is pretty much over except for the Garrosh farming. Sometimes those partings are pretty sad. For example, I still don't have my Big Love Rocket. Sometimes, though, they can make way for something better. For example, Mists of Pandaria may be gone, but Warlords of Draenor is coming on fast, and we've got a lot of great news and insight about it this past week.

Downtime today is limited to a series of rolling restarts at 5 a.m. PST, but seriously, take some to read up on the Warlords of Draenor news, if nothing else. It's good stuff. We also have our usual roundup of other great news and features. Before I tell you to read on, though, let me say just one more thing, dear readers. You were fantastic. Absolutely fantastic. And you know what? So was I.

Warlords of Draenor news and features
  • Check out our Warlords of Draenor guide for all the news you need in one place.
  • The new orc female model has been revealed, and the dwarf female model can be seen in 3d on the official Warlords of Draenor site.
  • Warlords of Draenor PvP will feature a spectator mode and the return of skirmishes.
  • You will need a silver medal from the Proving Grounds if you want to randomly queue for heroic dungeons in Warlords. In addition, they've hinted that Proving Grounds may be able to scale up instead of down in the future.
  • The Dread Hatchling is now appearing in the pet journal as of patch 5.4.7.
  • A recent press event has resulted in a glut of new Warlords info. Check out video of the character boost process and Alliance Shadowmoon Valley questing.

Last Week in WoW: Lack of beta blues edition

Happy Tuesday morning, everyone. I feel like we're officially in the part of the year where we're all desperate for the expansion beta, but have a sinking feeling it won't be out for at least another month or two.

With so much to read up on, you might want to get it to. Maintenance today is limited to rolling restarts at 5 a.m. pacific time, but you'll want to take your time absorbing this good stuff.

Last Week in WoW: Dragons deserve better edition

Happy Tuesday Morning, everyone. Patch 5.4.7 is out on the PTR, which means, even if it's not a content patch, we got lots of cool news coming in. I admit to being a little too bummed out by those poor dragons, but even I'm still pretty excited at the prospect of getting my free 90 boost a little earlier. Now I really need to decide between my priest and my rogue.

Of course, beyond patch 5.4.7, we still a lot of other news, including Hearthstone's open beta, new female human model previews, and our usual roundup of guides. As of this writing, there is no announced downtime, but why not take a break and read up anyway? The usual roundup is below.

Last Week in WoW: Card envy edition

Happy Tuesday morning, everyone. The stream of Warlords of Draenor news continues unabated, although we've yet to hear the long-awaited beta announcement.

Last Week in WoW: Yes, we have no corgis edition

Happy Tuesday morning, everyone. Alas, another year, another Winter Veil without a Corgi of my own to keep forever. The Holidays are mostly behind us, and it's just about time to get back to work in earnest.

Last Week in WoW: Spying on your WoW edition

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.

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.

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.
