Welcome to the web site of the Highland Warriors.
The Highland Warriors are (almost) 12 year old alliance guild on the Thunderhorn(EU) server whose aim is to enjoy the wonderful world of WOW in a fun and friendly guild. We are a level cap casual raiding guild. Our main guild focus is around the people, not the epics and our recruitment policy reflects this. If you are an epic seeking glory boy, Google is here, good luck. If you want to play with friends, have fun in a relaxed adult environment, enjoying wipes and kills, feel free to make an application here.
While we are casual we do still expect our members to work on their stuff and turn up when they say they will, although theres no attendance requirements.
The Warcraft III Invitational will take place on February 27th and 28th, featuring a number of classic competitors. Last week, we speculated that some of the attendees were attending a special Warcraft III event.

New Warcraft Icons Added to Battle.net Launcher - Tue, 20 Feb 2018 23:40:30 -0600 The Battle.net Launcher recently updated with WoW-specific icons for your profile. Previously, you could select some WoW-themed characters but the art originated from other Blizzard games like Heroes of the Storm or Hearthstone.
This was first noticed in a Reddit thread today by ChakraaThePanda and later confirmed by a Blizzard game designer:
This Reddit thread from a few days ago may have reminded Blizzard to add the icons:
Patch 7.3.5 Hotfixes for February 20th - Tue, 20 Feb 2018 19:17:48 -0600 February 20th hotfixes include a cost change for Blood of Sargeras Argus Missions, a nerf to enemy HP in Pit of Saron Timewalking, and the addition of the Ren'dorei Cloak to the Void Elf Heritage Armor.

World First Solo Xavius - Tue, 20 Feb 2018 12:34:06 -0600 Another Legion boss has been soloed today! Affliction Warlock MrNinjaBurger aka Lockoclock has soloed Xavius, the final boss of The Emerald Nightmare.
According to MrNinjaBurger, this solo had no gimmicks like the ones you've seen in solos like the World First on Garothi Worldbreaker, but instead it relies a fair bit on luck with the Dream Simulacrum mechanics.
Warcraft III Receives A New Installer - Tue, 20 Feb 2018 11:12:06 -0600 After last week's rumors about some Warcraft RTS content planned for the future, Reddit user r_ez has noticed that Warcraft III received an updated installer recently, similar to those used by last generation Blizzard games. Although not yet shown in Blizzard Battle.net Launcher, that might indicate that it now has the required tech for such, similarly to Classic Starcraft.
Note that this interface was previously used only to update the game and not to install it.
