5.4 PTR: Proving Grounds Now Testable
The Proving Grounds are now testable on the 5.4 PTR! As we covered yesterday, Proving Grounds are solo challenges that both allow new players to learn a new role in a comfortable setting, or seasoned players to try something difficult and competitive.
Proving Grounds allow users to select Tank, Healer, or DPS challenges. You can queue up from class trainers, or
who is by Flaskataur or Temple of the White Tiger.
Proving Grounds does have some similarities to Brawler's Guild in that they're solo challenges, but Proving Grounds lets you privately learn a role without people watching you fail on the sidelines, plus there are challenges for all specs. In addition, gear plays much less of a role in Proving Grounds success--all gear is scaled down to ilvl 463, like it is in Challenge Modes.
Once inside Proving Grounds, there are vendors that offer various amenities:
for Jewelcrafting supplies,
is a reforger, and
sells basic food.

5.4 PTR: Proving Grounds Preview
Blizzard just posted a blog introducing an exciting feature coming in Patch 5.4--Proving Grounds. In Proving Grounds, players can try out new roles in a safe environment (no PuGs being angry you failed at something new), or push their limits on high-difficulty settings.
Your gear will be scaled down so it's purely about skill, and depending on the role you choose, you'll be faced with combat mechanics similar to what's in a dungeon, with both friendly NPCs assisting you as well as vendors, soulwells, reforgers, and more inside! You don't even have to worry about durability when dying.
For completing various challenges, you'll be awarded achievements on Bronze, Silver, and Gold difficulty. An Endless Wave difficulty setting is in place for those who want competitive scores (like
Proving Grounds are now testable on the PTR! Simply go to the Temple of the White Tiger to queue up.

Transportation Guide: Maps, Portals, Flight Paths, and More!
Getting around Azeroth quickly is important--especially with holidays requiring lots of travel like the Lunar Festival and Love is in the Air. Basic flight paths can take you anywhere, but they're slow and easily up to 15 minutes across a continent. And which boat goes where from Stormwind anyway? \r
This is a newspost from 2013 which is now outdated. Please refer to the Transportation Guide in our guide section for updates.\r
There are numerous items, teleports, and portals that can shave minutes off your travel experience--even breadcrumb quests that you can hold onto which will provide useful ports!\r
With this guide, you'll learn about all the travel options on each continent, complete with maps. We've also added details on flight paths, mage portals, and Hearthstones.\r
Transmoggable and New Vanity Items Coming to Blizzard Store
Cosmetic items are coming to the Blizzard Store--BoA gear that you can transmog, regardless of your armor type! They'll work just like
in being transmoggable over any cloth, leather, mail, or plate item for that slot.
The items coming to the Blizzard Store do not give players any meaningful stat boosts--it's just for fashion. In addition, the Blizzard Store items have unique looks, so you won't be able to finish up any existing transmog sets from the store.

Talk Azeroth with Olivia - Episode 6: In-Game Store
This week on Talk Azeroth, Olivia tackles the hottest topic of the moment: in-game microtransactions. But first, she gives the viewer a very short French lesson -- the translation is directly after the intro -- and it's on with the show.
Olivia starts off by looking at the datamined item itself: the
. Looking at Bashiok's forum post, she wonders whether it's really something that would qualify as pay-to-win, and considers that there are already similar items available within the game. She then takes a look at the mechanical side of an in-game store itself, and points out how it might affect players' immersion and in-game experience, as well as pointing out ways in which it might be made to work.
Then it's on to the meat of the problem: what is suitable for a cash shop and what isn't. Olivia would love your input on just exactly what you think is OK and what's not. She looks briefly at the psychology of it before hypothesizing about just what might come of the store in the future, and how the player base might react.
Last up, it's two viewer questions! If yo

In-Game Store Details, Experience Buff Coming to Asian Regions
Bashiok confirmed some speculation about an in-game store coming soon: the experience buff
is planned to go live on Asian regions at the outset. There will also be a way to get Lesser Charms of Good Fortune.
Asian servers, due to their unique hourly subscription model, have already gotten some changes in the past. Earlier in MoP, KR servers no longer shared raid lockouts on 10s and 25s, and 25-player loot was changed to be of a higher ilvl.
In addition, it's implied that the in-game store would also sell items like the Pet Store pets and mounts as a long-term goal.
Thanks for all the feedback so far, everyone. We\u2019re still pretty early in the exploration process, but we did want to go into more detail about our rationale for introducing an in-game store, as well as provide some insight into what you might ultimately see available there.
For players who are already interested in the in-game items we offer, such as Pet Store pets and mounts, the benefits of an in-game store are pretty clear. We think ev
