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. Soon just isn't soon enough. Luckily, we still have some choice WoD news tidbits coming out, as well as a flood of news from the patch 5.4.7 PTR.

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: 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.
