Patch 3.3: Orcs in Undercity
was kind enough to point out this interesting post on
World of Raids
Usually the fuss is about the new gear, the new instances, and such—but one of the things I'm most interested in is the way the actual game world changes around us—and 3.3 is bringing us some interesting changes in that department...
Patch 3.3 On PTR! (Quel'Delar... Speculations?)
Hey, so 3.3 PTR came down on us like a sword falling on an iceberg. From the sky. Anybody else really excited about going there and kicking some butt (we'd chew gum too, but we seem to be out of gum...) with Sylvanas and Jaina? 'Cause I sure am!
Anyway, hopefully you are wondering where the stupid metaphor came from. 'Twas all intentional. A little while ago, back in the 3.1 days, when the Argent Tournament first came to existence, something starting drilling in the Lore freaks' heads. Right next to Sindragosa's Fall (where we saw the Lich King raising the biggest frost wyrm of them all in the WotLK cinematic), there was a sword. Sword stuck in the ice, surrounded by some stones, and apparently called Quel'Delar. Related to Quel'Serrar? Or maybe some sort of Excalibur reference? We knew nothing about it, until a few minutes ago when MMO-Champion dug some information from the PTR files. It's only spells, but they seem rather interesting by themselves too...
P.S. Stay tuned, more stuff might appear!
3.3 PTR Patch Notes Are Up!
are up for Patch 3.3 on the PTR!
Blizzard is releasing these a lot faster than we're used to. The patch notes have some interesting info in them, particularly about some changes to the early leveling game. Other than that, these are pretty bare so far.

My Throat! It Burns!
It's flu/cough/cold season again and I've been running a fever, had a sore throat, and hacking my lungs out since Sunday, so I've been confined to my house so that I can rest. It's strange, but whenever I'm feeling fine, I always wish that I could go home and relax, maybe level up an alt, pig out on some junk food, etc. Yet when I am actually
to be home, I wish that I wasn't sick so I could get out of the house and
something! But I can't, so I wander around the house listlessly, looking for something to do.
I don't feel very hungry, so no gobbling down my sweets; I can't read a book, 'cause my head hurts so much it's hard to concentrate on the words; I can't play any video games on my computer, because staring at the screen (which is pretty close to my face) hurts my eyes after a while; so I usually just go upstairs, lay down on the couch and watch old movies that I've seen a kajabillion times before.
So I'm pretty bored out of my skull. But that got me thinking: What do you guys do when you are sick and confined to home? Do you play video games? Watch movies? Read bo

Brewfest is a time of year where the focus is placed squarely on the celebration of fun and food.

The festivities will end on October 5th at 11:59PM, so don't miss it!

Icecrown Details Revealed!
Some of you may have noticed, but after launching a brand new EU site, Blizzard decided to pop another surprise at us - in the "Under Dev" section there, about the Icecrown Citadel. Back during BlizzCon, we were told that Icecrown will be composed of two major parts - a huge 5-man dungeon, and a 10/25-man raid. Well, here is the information about the 5-man instance part of it...
: The information below does not mean, nor imply that the Icecrown Citadel is going to be a 5-man dungeon. It doesn't mean that the Lich King is going to be a 5-man boss either. There is a separate raid, information for which has not been released after BlizzCon.
We may end up fighting some form of the Lich King in the 5-man however - a memory, a vision, an illusion...

A Bit of Nostalgia - Who Got You Playing WoW?
Time for a bit of
to feed your addiction. As if it's possible to play World of Warcraft or visit Wowhead without becoming an addict.
Who got you into WoW?
I remember my best e-friend named Shawn. We came from
Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided
, also heavy
players in intermediate gaming leagues (2v2 and 5v5). He introduced me to WOW when he got in the beta. I checked the website and said, "That thing looks corny, and I don't think it's exciting at all. The story sounds good, but..." Oh, how little did I know. I was addicted as soon as
