Patch Notes Updated—And Some Interesting Haste Changes
We've updated the
with new info!
All of the new data has been conveniently marked with a "New! (10/7):" flag, and the top has a section for the last date it was updated. Looks like a new PTR Build on the horizon, so stay tuned for more dataz!
Haste Rating and DoTS/HoTs
In other news, casters may be interested in
from Ghostcrawler, which discusses proposed changes to DoTs, HoTs, and haste rating. They're talking about a system which actually lets the spells tick faster—and are considering testing the technology out on
. None of this is confirmed yet, it's just something they're testing—but still very interesting to explore the way things work over there.
New Patch Notes:
Icecrown Citadel Preview!
The official World of Warcraft website has released some details on the
Icecrown Citadel Raid
From the sound of it, the
Knights of the Ebon Blade
have joined forces to create a new faction called the
, which will storm the Frozen Throne together—with the help of Highlord Tirion Fordring, High Overlord Saurfang (the Elder), Muradin Bronzebeard, Highlord Darion Mograine, King Varian Wrynn, and YOU.
The item levels are listed as 251 for 10-man normal, 265 for 25-man normal and 10-man heroic, and 277 for 25-man heroic. We've also got a bunch of screenshots of the new artwork, and a description of the individual wings. Go check it out on the

Pit of Saron Impressions
So after much struggle and not a single WoW reinstall, I finally managed to get my PTR Client up and working. Eager to test the Pit of Saron, I transferred my
(who is actually a tank, so his Ret gear isn't that great), I went to the place, got a group together in a few mere instants... and could not enter. Apparently having done so many phasing quests in Icecrown, I was not able to see the instance portals. Which I fixed by simply copying a pre-made character, paladin tank as well, and, oh wonders - I was able to enter the instance soon after my first failure!
So this blog is going to be about my first impressions of the place. A word of caution before we start - I was not able to fight the final boss, Scourgelord Tyrannus. He was just not there. Kind people in the LFG channel politely informed me that he should be there, so I guess I had just encountered a bug. I will try again later and update the blog with impressions of the fight against him as well.
3.3 Speculations (Part 1)
So just a couple days back I brought you some juicy
(because we all know the blog wasn't actually about the PTR coming up). Well, I was talking to Corgan yesterday, and apparently he is really good at digging interesting stuff out of the game files and
. So we just kind of sat
, he was throwing links at me, I was reading as quickly as possible, and then there were some promises and implications that my immediate descendants would suffer an... interesting fate, if I failed to post all that in a blog.
So here it is. The blog is going to be really spoiler heavy. I am only going to cover Quel'Delar in this part (exploring other interesting quest chains, and some interesting spells too in the later issues), so if you are fine with that - go ahead. If not... I just wrote a very long blog for you not to read :P
Wowhead Month Review (Sept 13 - Oct 3)
Hey there, this is our latest Wowhead Weekly Review which includes the 28th, 29th, and 30th all in one! Also, we're sorry about the late WWR post everyone! All of our schedules were screwed up, and the new patch only further pushed back our release. Forgive us! (According to my calculations, this blog has three WWRs assembled, namely #28, #29 and #30. Yay for us hitting another milestone!)
Opinions presented in the Wowhead Weekly Review are not necessarily those of Wowhead.com or its staff members.

PTR Players: We Need Your Dataz!
That's right Wowhead users, we need your data!
For those of you who don't already know, Wowhead keeps its database listings up-to-date using a program called the
. This is a small program which automatically installs and updates an addon (which we call the Wowhead Looter) in your WoW folder, and takes notes on all the items, NPCs and such that you encounter in the game. Then, when you run the Client the next time, it uploads that data to our server—and we put it up on the website.
Those of you who are playing on the Public Test Realms, we need your data now more than ever! Please remember that the Wowhead Client
does not locate your PTR installation on its own
. You need to do that manually if you want to upload PTR data—and the faster we get the PTR data, the sooner we can provide you with PTR searches, PTR talent calcs, and so on!
If you need help setting the Wowhead Client up to work with your PTR installation, we've included some convenient instructions after the break.
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!
