PTR Build 10805 - TONS of New Models (And 2 New Icons)!
I'm sure we can all tell that Icecrown is coming soon, and these PTR patches are getting bigger and more cram-packed with awesome! This latest patch included a plethora of new items so we've got some brand spankin' new models to share with you guys. Not too many new item icons have been added, but I'm sure we'll be seeing even more soon!
We've added a few new models! Check again for some more cool recolors. Be sure to check out all of the awesome new weapon and armor models in 3D (!) after the break!

What's New Page Updated
page has been updated with our latest projects, and some shiny new artwork!
We've actually been stealth-fixing this page for a while. We originally had an "Under Development" page in its place, but we decided we'd rather keep the big things a surprise (stay tuned for some cool surprises this month, btw). We've changed the page over to a "
" page now, so you can always check there and see the latest things we've added.
Go take a look!
More Blue Pugs!
Apparently the previous episode of
PUGging with the blues
went so well, they've decided to do it again.
On Wednesday, November 11, 2009 at 4pm Pacific Standard Time, the Blizzard dungeon team will be testing out their own new LFG feature on the PTR—so all you have to do is hop in the queue, and who knows? You might get the chance to personally ask Ghostcrawler for that pony he promised you.
For a chance to group with the Blizzard team members, you need to use the Dungeon system and choose the "Random Heroic" option. All employees will have the <GM> tag next to their names and be able to choose whichever class, realm and faction he or she wants.

Dolby Axon in Open Beta
A friend of mine pointed this out to me a little while ago—apparently
is now in open beta.
For those of you who aren't familiar with Axon, it's a competitor for
. It's got a couple of really interesting features—most interesting among them, I think, is the ability to chat "visually" in surround sound. You can drag each person on your Axon channel to a different location, and hear the voices in surround sound, coming from the actual locations where you put people.
I haven't downloaded it yet, but if this really does what it says it does it could be a really compelling replacement for vent. If you're interested in signing up for the beta, check it out
Weight Scale Updates
Wowhead has made a long overdue update to the
We've gone through the sticky threads and pulled the best weights we could find to update our weight scale system, so the
should now be showing much more realistic results.
There ARE a few weight scales that are still out of date though! Our Blood Death Knight scale still doesn't have a value for agility, and our Frost Tanking scale still has old numbers. We're changing the way these scales get updated so we should be much quicker to get the scores up to date—but we need your help!

3.3 PTR Patch Notes Updated! Bug Fixes Galore!
Greetings Wowhead users! There's a new build on the PTR so you guys know what that means! Blizzard has updated their
PTR Patch Notes
with a plethora of bug fixes and some additional changes.
Nothing too amazing this build, though significant changes have been made to

Looking for Dungeon
system. Sadly, I don't see anything about Blizzard actually having made the dungeon

Patch 3.3 Guide - Recent Updates
The reason for this out-of-the-blue blog are some recent updates to the
Patch 3.3 Guide
we released about 3 weeks ago. Several PTR builds have hit us since then, I have been updating the index page of the guide, and occasionally dropping a reply in the blog, but all of those have been somewhat subtle. So here is the official announcement of what has been updated and how it has been updated.
Note: We know we've been spamming you with blogs a lot lately, but this one had to be done. And better now than when Halls of Reflection, or some other major feature appears on the PTR. Blizzard has really made us work for this patch.
PTR Build 10772 - New Models
The Public Test Realm was recently updated to build 10772, and with that comes some new models to enjoy! Some of the interesting models in this build are new armoured frost wyrms, new models for Quel'Delar, and some snazzy boss models of what I assume are the San'layn (Vampiric Blood Elves).
Check them out after the jump!
