Lichborne: Stupid death knight tricks on the Isle of Thunder - Tue, 26 Mar 2013 19:00:00 EST

Every week, WoW Insider brings you Lichborne for blood, frost, and unholy death knights. In the post-Cataclysm era, death knights are no longer the new kids on the block. Let's show the other classes how a hero class gets things done.

With patch 5.2 well underway, by now you've probably spent a good amount of time on the Isle of Thunder. There's lots of fun stuff to dig into there. For the most part, non-raid content seems designed so that most classes can deal with it with a minimum of fuss. Still, some classes will have an advantage, and this time, death knights are among them. Today we'll look at a few ways in which you can use your death knight specific skills to make your time on the Isle of Thunder more profitable.

WoW Moviewatch: Stuff PvPers Say - Tue, 26 Mar 2013 18:00:00 EST

I was really hoping that there would be some phrase in Stuff PvPers Say that I wasn't familiar with. Or that, maybe, I hadn't myself said. But as it turns out... yeah. Slightly Impressive got it pretty right. That's the stuff I say, and I imagine you've all said it before, also.

The problem isn't that PvPers are so predictable (although we can be), it's that battleground experience is eventually fairly universal. We're all playing on the same maps, with the same rules, doing the same thing over and over until if you see that lone tank standing on the flag one more time... you'll lose your mind. Because the cat druid is always nearby.

Interested in the wide world of machinima? We have new movies every weekday here on WoW Moviewatch! Have suggestions for machinima we ought to feature? Toss us an email at moviewatch@wowinsider.com.

The 15 nastiest trash clears of WoW - Tue, 26 Mar 2013 17:00:00 EST

I was reading through some links while writing a follow-up to Robert's Not-So-Original WoW Miscellany when I happened across some discussions concerning the game's most agonizing trash. This is a popular subject for players, not least because complaining is a lot of fun, but I don't think anyone's going to argue that there haven't been some legitimately unpleasant trash clears in WoW.

Fortunately, most of the really bad trash clears are a distant memory, but there was at least one recent one that almost everyone who raided Dragon Soul could agree on. I'm going to include both dungeons and raids here, mostly because Shattered Halls was among the first things to go on this list. After including that, I knew there were other, equally nightmarish 5-mans that had to be included in the interest of fairness.

Drama Mamas: Time to stop tanking? - Tue, 26 Mar 2013 16:00:00 EST

Drama Mamas Lisa Poisso and Robin Torres are experienced gamers and real-life mamas -- and just as we don't want our precious babies to be the ones kicking and wailing on the floor of the checkout lane next to the candy, neither do we want you to become known as That Guy on your realm.

Our email address is having technical difficulties. If you would like to send us a letter to be answered in our column, please email to dramamamas@gmail.com for now. On to this week's letter.
Your recent article on Time Management has me considering if I need to change roles in the game.

I'm the main tank for my small 10 man guild. We raid two nights a week. We are currently working on Horridon one night, and going back to HoF/ToES the 2nd night to help some members get better gear. If I don't play, 9 other people don't get to have fun. I also feel a certain responsibility to my guild to have the best gear I can get which means putting in a ton of time into WoW on our non-Raid nights.

The thing is I love playing WoW. I love my guild. I love tanking. It's a blast and a great way to shake off the stresses of my day.

  • When: Saturday, March 30 at noon EDT (9 a.m. PDT, 10 a.m. server time)
  • Where: Meet the fountain in the Court of the Sun in Silvermoon City on Zangarmarsh (US-PvE-H)
  • Who: Any horde player
  • How: Just ask Tizzi or any member of It came from the Blog for an invite
Some of the companions have been donated by guildies and others are extras I have from holidays. The great thing about battle pets is that everyone who joins us will still be able to use their prizes on their home servers.

The contest will be held in zones that don't allow flying, but you'll have a better chance of winning if you have a mount. That having been said, I have many pets to give away, so there will be many winners.

The hunt list will be provided in /say when the event begins, so that only those who are punctual will be able to see it. It will be given again 15 minutes later in event chat.

These hunts are always fun so please join us!

Please join us on Zangarmarsh (US-PvE-H) in It came from the Blog. All guild ranks can invite, so /whisper Tizzi or any online member. You are all welcome as long as you play by our simple rules -- basically, don't be a funsucker! Visit the guild FAQ for more details.

Resto druids vs. the world 2: War harder - Tue, 26 Mar 2013 14:00:00 EST

Every week, WoW Insider brings you Shifting Perspectives for cat, bear, restoration and balance druids. This Tuesday, we may hate numbers, but oh, they add so much to our lives.

Story time!

I first got a lesson on how to read healing meters while raiding Serpentshrine Cavern. One of our healers, an otherwise very competent holy priest, consistently ran OOM early on Morogrim Tidewalker and was next to useless during the final phase of the fight. The head of the heal team took an hour to look over the logs, and decided to give me a lesson on how to read them while doing so. It quickly became apparent that the priest was unwittingly covering for a resto shaman, who not only wasn't pulling his weight, but also seemed to take an unusual amount of damage.

"Why aren't you doing anything during the add phases?" asked the head, a paladin.

"Because our off-tank can't hold aggro for s$#t and I'm tired of dying to murlocs."

This was actually true. Our head healer pondered for a moment. "Can't you just Chain Heal after he's already gotten all the murlocs?"

"No, I die that way too. And we have to save BoP for the clothies who have to AOE the murlocs." Also true.

Analysis of Blizzard's post on patch 5.3 PvP gear - Tue, 26 Mar 2013 13:00:00 EST

The patch 5.3 PTR notes brought some big, scary changes to PvP, which WoW Insider explained for its readership yesterday, and now Blizzard's official blog has, as promised, arrived. It deals with a lot of the same concerns as we addressed yesterday, but also adds in several pieces of new information for players to digest. Let's start with that. Here are the changes in full:

Daxxarri
  • Base Resilience will be set to 65% for all characters level 85 and higher
  • Resilience will be removed from nearly all PvP gear
  • Players will still be able to use Resilience gems and enchants
  • PvP power will remain exclusively on PvP gear
  • PvP set bonuses that currently provide Resilience will now provide PvP Power
  • Healers and hybrid-casters will benefit to a greater degree from PvP Power, and Battle Fatigue will increase to make PvP gear superior for healers.
  • The Big Change: We will be adding an item level ceiling to all gear in unrated Battlegrounds, Rated Battlegrounds and Arenas
  • All gear with item levels higher than 496 will be scaled down to 496 (Conquest gear item level). This includes even Conquest items that exceed the ilevel ceiling, such as weapons.
In addition, some of the changes that we've discussed previously will also be implemented:
  • In patches that don't include a new season (including patch 5.3), the seasonal currency requirement of 7,250 Conquest Points earned will be lifted from weapons. The seasonal currency requirement must always be met to purchase Elite items, though.
  • Once the 27,000 Conquest Point seasonal currency requirement is reached, players will be able to purchase Tyrannical Gladiator's gear with Honor Points.
  • The Conquest Point catch up cap will be introduced. You can read our PvP Gear in 5.2 and Beyond blog for more information on these changes.

Around Azeroth: Wile E. Coyote style - Tue, 26 Mar 2013 10:00:00 EST

"I was giving a guildie a ride to a Black Temple farm run when we flew over the chasm between Blade's Edge Mountains and Netherstorm," writes submitter Neffi of Reckoning on Wyrmrest Accord (US-H). "Apparently we cross-realm shifted in-between zones, and the game disconnected him, knocking him right off my saddle. While he was disconnecting, he stood there in mid-air à la Wile E. Coyote. When he managed to get logged back in a few seconds later, there was a pause -- and then he plummeted to his death, frantically bubbling the whole way down. What we took away from this is: Two person mounts + cross realm zone = bad."

Enter to win The Art of Blizzard Entertainment - Tue, 26 Mar 2013 09:00:00 EST

When we first heard about The Art of Blizzard Entertainment, a collection of artwork from Blizzard's artists over the course of their development history, we all seriously underestimated its size. While many expected something on the scale of the art books that come packaged with a World of Warcraft Collector's Edition, it turned out to be a 376 page behemoth that dwarfs nearly everything else on my office bookshelf. The book features everything from Chris Metzen's earliest Blizzard works to far more recent Mists of Pandaria and Diablo III artwork.

Thanks to Blizzard Entertainment themselves, we have a copy of the book to give to one of our lucky readers.

To enter for a chance to win, leave a comment on this post before 11:59 p.m. ET, Tuesday, April 9, 2013. You must be 18 years of age or older and a legal resident of the United States or Canada (excluding Quebec). You can only enter once. One winner will be chosen at random and we will contact you via whatever method you've used to comment. Official rules here.

Breakfast Topic: Which is the hardest class to play? - Tue, 26 Mar 2013 08:00:00 EST

I have been informed by The Management that the answer to this question is a rogue. This is probably objectively true. Rogues are a finicky class to play. Gearing can be an inordinate pain, with new pieces of gear often requiring complete regemming and reforging for optimal DPS output. Rotations, priorities, and situational attacks are also quite complex, and I have a lot of admiration for accomplished rogues. I have a rogue myself, and if I'm away from her for even a few days, it takes me a little while to get back into the rogue play style groove. However, I cannot truthfully say that a rogue is the most difficult class for me. My main is a druid, and I have played feral spec since I started WoW (though I raid and run dungeons mainly as Restoration - I prefer healer queue times, who doesn't?) so roguish game mechanics are pretty familiar to me. No, to me, the hardest class to play would be a death knight.

I have never been able to make sense of death knight mechanics. I can recite them: abilities consume runes, which produce runic power, which is necessary for other abilities. In practice, though, when I play a death knight it always eventually boils down to button mashing, which is not fun at all. So, despite having rolled a death knight at least three or four times, each in an attempt to finally stick with the class, I've given up. Death knights and me, we just weren't meant to be.

I still don't understand why, though, because honestly the concept behind both death knight and rogue mechanics is really similar! It doesn't make any sense that I'd be perfectly at home with one class but not the other. What gives, brain? I feed you and give you sleep when you need it, the least you could do is be more consistent in your virtual-world data processing, okay?! Alas, I cannot change the natural order of things, and death knight mastery will likely remain my World of Warcraft white whale. What about you, fair readers? What is the hardest class for you to play?

Last Week in WoW: We fell for Blizzard's trap card edition - Tue, 26 Mar 2013 05:00:00 EST

Happy Tuesday morning, everyone. The past week or so has been one of unexpected announcements, to say the least. First, we heard about Hearthstone, the Warcraft-based online CCG, then we had the first patch notes and build for the patch 5.3 PTR, right before the first guild downed heroic Lei Shen. I am pretty sure Alex is clairvoyant now, because he picked the perfect week to go on vacation.

Downtime today is limited to rolling restarts at 7 a.m. PDT, but trust me, a lot of stuff went down this week and you'll want to read about it all. Our usual roundup awaits you below.

Blood Pact: To summon or not to summon, that's the question - Mon, 25 Mar 2013 20:00:00 EST

Every week, WoW Insider brings you Blood Pact for affliction, demonology, and destruction warlocks. This week, Megan O'Neill scraps another attempt at Kanrethad to discuss being a pet class instead.

Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous pet bugs in encounter design like jumping down into Nefarian's pit in Blackwing Descent so your pet then did nothing but stand in the middle, or to take up Doomguards against a despawning abyssal phase 3 in Throne of the Four Winds -- and by opposing end them: to die, to sacrifice.

To sacrifice, perchance to DPS; Aye, there's the rub, for in that sleep of death, what meter-topping dreams of 5.0 may come, when we have shuffled off this mortal coil (no, not that one!), must give our developers pause.

My terrible warlock Shakespeare adaptation aside, we've had the ponderings about how tied to pets warlocks should or shouldn't be. As I continue to throw myself at Kanrethad's own demonic stampede, I've had some thoughts about the subject.

Revolutionary new minigame datamined in patch 5.3 - Mon, 25 Mar 2013 19:00:00 EST

We've asked for other minigames in WoW, but so far there's been no official word of anything on the horizon. The Plants vs. Zombies minigame is loads of fun, and the battle pet system is by far the most expansive minigame that's ever come to the game. Not everyone has the interest or time to invest in pet battling, so it was very exciting to stumble across the newest WoW minigame, just datamined in patch 5.3.

It's a game any player can have fun with. A game many of us have enjoyed ...

Say hello to Rock, Paper, Scissors!

That's right! Forget about the Singing Sunflower. Whether you're bored or want a new and improved way to decide who get's that Thunderforged weapon, this is it. OK, so this may not really be a new minigame -- datamining is a fickle thing -- but the spells are there for one purpose or another. We can dream, right?

Officers' Quarters: 5 arguments for guild halls - Mon, 25 Mar 2013 18:00:00 EST

Every Monday, Scott Andrews contributes Officers' Quarters, a column about the ins and outs of guild leadership. He is the author of The Guild Leader's Handbook.

A few weeks ago, a Twitter user named Quentin Charton asked Ghostcrawler whether WoW could eventually have guild housing. Ghostcrawler's reply was "We worry that guild housing is only content for the guild leaders."

If implemented properly, I think guild halls could be a home run for WoW. Here are five reasons why.

1. Guild leaders and officers deserve in-game rewards.

Ghostcrawler doesn't want to create content just for guild leaders. My question is, why not? Leading a guild is not easy. It requires making sacrifices, both in-game and in the real world, since it takes time and energy. Don't guild leaders and their officers deserve a few small in-game perks?

I agree that the entire guild hall experience shouldn't be for officers only. However, a guild hall could have a special place in it for officers. You could call it something simple like, say, off the top of my head . . . the "Officers' Quarters." This location would have a few small bonuses for them, like a flask vending machine you can use once a day (like Blingtron). Such a perk would be a welcome thank you to the players who make all the best group content in WoW happen.

Interview: Talking Hearthstone with the developers - Mon, 25 Mar 2013 17:00:00 EST

Want to know more about Blizzard's new digital card game, Hearthstone? During PAX East 2013, we spoke with Hearthstone Lead Designer Eric Dodds and Production Director Jason Chayes to learn some additional information about the game.

During the 20-minute interview, I asked the developers several questions, some on behalf of the lore nerds, others for the collectors among us. We discussed some of the game features planned for launch, as well as the possibility of implementing e-sports capabilities later. Also touched upon were the game's visual aspects, like the art work and animated game boards.

And for those of you with a history playing other strategy card games like Magic: The Gathering, I learned a bit more about Hearthstone gameplay and how the Forge works.

Updated! Spoiler Alert: Patch 5.3 Datamined sound files - Mon, 25 Mar 2013 16:10:00 EST

Spoiler Alert! Beyond the break are several YouTube video embeds which contain considerable spoilers for the latter half of this expansion, as well as, potentially, for the next one.

Our friends over at Adriacraft have been at it again, digging around in the latest patch 5.3 PTR files. There's audio from several key characters in the game (including a great deal of Wrathion), revealing what could well be coming our way. Of course, take this with a hefty pinch of salt. This is datamined information and should be treated as such, so don't take it as confirmation of anything.

As ever, spoilers lurk after the break. Do not hit the break unless you are happy to hear spoilers for upcoming content. Do not read the comments unless you are happy to read people talking about spoilers. Fair warning.

Patch 5.3 PTR: Third Talent Specialization datamined - Mon, 25 Mar 2013 15:30:00 EST

If this little tidbit from the Wowhead database is to be believed, we may be receiving tri-spec in patch 5.3. Now, before you begin speaking in tongues or leaping out a window, some caveats:
  • This is the PTR, and stuff can be datamined that never actually makes it to live
  • Even if it does get tested on the PTR, it doesn't necessarily follow that it will be implemented
  • Sometimes stuff gets put in the files just to mess with us
So let us calmly and without panic contemplate what this could mean. How much could triple specialization change the game? Would you use it? Should it be as costly as dual specialization was when it debuted? Does it favor certain classes too greatly or does the hurdle of gear provide enough barrier to keep jack of all trades from dominating the game? What are your thoughts on this potential feature?

Update -- In reply to our request for comment/verification, Blizzard notes the following (best summed up by a tweet from Ghostcrawler on the matter):


Mists of Pandaria is here! The level cap has been raised to 90, many players have returned to Azeroth, and pet battles are taking the world by storm. Keep an eye out for all of the latest news, and check out our comprehensive guide to Mists of Pandaria for everything you'll ever need to know.

New raid pets, wild pets, and hit chance system coming to pet battles in patch 5.3 - Mon, 25 Mar 2013 15:00:00 EST

Earlier this afternoon, Cory "Mumper" Stockton revealed a new wild battle pet coming in patch 5.3: the Unborn Val'kyr. If we can all ignore the creepy implications of its name, this will likely turn out to be an awesome addition to everyone's pet collections. Even if it turns out its battle abilities aren't very impressive (and we don't know yet either way), who doesn't want a tiny little val'kyr following them everywhere?

In addition to the Unborn Val'kyr, patch 5.3 datamining has revealed the achievement Raiding with Leashes II: Attunement Edition which will add pets to Burning Crusade-era raids, much like those added to classic WoW raids.

Mumper clarifies seasonal battle pets - Mon, 25 Mar 2013 13:00:00 EST

There are a number of achievements available for pet battlers, but one in particular has eluded us all. Not because it's particularly tough to earn, but because we're all waiting for MoP's first Summertime in-game. The Qiraji Guardling is said to only spawn during Summer, but there's been a bit of confusion surrounding when WoW's Summer actually is. See, the Raw Summer Bass begins spawning on the first day of Spring here in the real world. With a name like Summer Bass, you'd think that'd make it Summer in-game, right? As it turns out, no.

The Summer Bass is a Spring/Summer fish, just like the Winter Squid is a Fall/Winter fish. Players sought clarification on fish versus pet spawning seasons from Lead Content Designer Cory "Mumper" Stockton, and received it:




So, the seasonal fish span multiple seasons, and the two seasonal pets span single seasons. Single seasons that loosely mirror our real-world seasons. Be on the lookout for the Guardling around the time Summer hits the Northern hemisphere -- in-game we're guessing it'll be May or June. Are you ready for your Zookeeper title?

DREAM Paragon take world first Heroic Lei Shen - Mon, 25 Mar 2013 12:00:00 EST

All-Finnish guild DREAM Paragon have done it again, taking down Heroic Lei Shen late last night in EU time, before their 10- and 25-man rivals, to add yet another world first to their long list.

It's taken almost two weeks for Paragon to get this far, with Method and Blood Legion hot on their heels, along with Eksorsus and Moonz, the only other 10-man guild in the top ten, although they skipped Dark Animus the first time around.

Paragon have been leading the pack throughout the race, with the 25-man versions of both Dark Animus and Twin Consorts needing either "tuning" or flat out nerfs for the 25-man guilds to get past them. Paragon took down the Twin Consorts on March 17th, three days before either Method or Blood Legion, so it's taken Paragon a full week to get Lei Shen dispatched. Blizzard has said all along that Lei Shen was a very difficult fight, and we're just now seeing the extent of that. It'll be interesting to see if the 25m version of Lei Shen remains unchanged through the upcoming raid reset.

Paragon now move on to Ra-Den, they'll be the first players in the world to see this top-secret boss in action, but we wouldn't expect them to be free and easy with the details until he's down. They've only got 30 tries to get past him, but they're in a good position, given that they've taken out Lei Shen just before a reset. Unless the other guilds can catch up today/tomorrow (raids reset on a Tuesday night in the EU), they'll have a full week with only 30 attempts on Ra-Den to play with.

Around Azeroth: She's only a bird in a gilded cage - Mon, 25 Mar 2013 10:00:00 EST

Sure, everyone thinks that the battle pets are the ones in cages. But maybe it's the hunters that are in cages, man! Society's cages of conformity! Wait ... on further inspection of this picture, I guess it's the battle pets in cages. Hmm. So we're making innocent animals fight each other, then removing them from the wild and putting them in cages with a hundred other animals? The battle pet system is a lot darker than I thought. (Thanks to Anton for the screenshot!)

Patch 5.3 PvP Gear Changes: Don't Panic - Mon, 25 Mar 2013 09:00:00 EST

I can understand why you did panic. The patch 5.3 PTR notes had a little section of PvP gear notes -- five bullet points that pulled the rug out from under our feet. These changes are characteristic of the bold, sweeping alterations that Blizzard's new PvP Designer Brian Holinka has been spearheading since he joined the company in August of last year. And these are big changes. If you missed the notes, let me repeat them for you here.
  • All characters now have a base Resilience of 65%.
  • Resilience has been removed from most PvP gear.
  • Season 13 Tyrannical gear had their item levels increased to ilevel 496, up from ilevel 493.
  • Season 13 Tyrannical Elite gear had their item levels decreased to ilevel 496, down from ilevel 512.
  • Battlegrounds, Rated Battlegrounds, and Arenas now have an ilevel cap. All gear will be scaled down to ilevel 496.
What does this all mean? I've been relentlessly bothering Brian on Twitter for your benefit, so let's run down how he's addressing players' concerns. Do note that Blizzard will release an official blog on this some time next week.

Breakfast Topic: Have you ever experienced the perfect synergistic partnership? - Mon, 25 Mar 2013 08:00:00 EST

I don't think it would be an exaggeration to say that nothing will ever approach the synergy I had between my classic era priest and my husband's warrior tank. We've played a lot of character combinations in a lot of different games, but there was something soul-stirring about our link with those two.

It seems silly written here in black and white, but I knew things about his tanking that I can't even describe knowing. Their absence would spill into view whenever I healed someone else. Even after I came to learn the habits and rhythms of the other tanks and we were downing bosses like a well-oiled machine, the missing element when I healed another tank hung in the air like perfume from a beautiful woman who'd just left the room. It was more than knowing his usual patterns of pulling or trusting him to pick up an add or position the boss, deeper than a feel for how much damage he could take or his intuitive sense of how long I could keep up on sheer regen mode after going OOM. I intuitively knew things about how he reacted on that character (and he about me and mine) that allowed us to function as a unit. It was bizarrely intimate. And no matter how well-honed our patterns of play are today, with different characters, we just don't feel the same effect.

It occurs to me that players who enjoy significant arena success must enjoy this sort of wordless communication, and I'm tempted to try some arena PvP with my husband to see if we can recapture and exploit the fruits of our teamwork. Have you ever played with someone with whom you shared utter synergy? What aspects of your partnership raise battle from a series of enjoyable encounters to a breathlessly glorious endeavor?

9 newbie tips for running dungeons without looking like a newbie - Sun, 24 Mar 2013 20:00:00 EST

We were all newbies once -- and some of us who have left the game and come back have found themselves being newbies a second time. And while there's no way to avoid newbiedom entirely, with a bit of foresight, even the newest player can run a dungeon without looking like a newbie. These 9 tips should help you get started on your dungeon running career -- and even if you're well on your way to being a professional, a refresher course never hurt.

1. Know your (instance) role
If you've never been in a dungeon before, the idea of group roles may not be intuitive. But when you're working with a group, you'll typically have one person assigned to tank, one person assigned to heal, and the rest of the group dealing damage (DPS). Additionally, some classes have crowd control abilities they'll be called to use in instances -- if you've got one, make sure it's on a hotbar rather than hidden in your spellbook. Whether you're playing with friends or you've jumped into a random group, know what your role is before you go.

Need tips on getting started? Here's some advice on getting started as a tank, getting started as a healer, and tips on improving your DPS.

WoW Moviewatch: Council Comic Fifth Element - Sun, 24 Mar 2013 18:00:00 EST

Fifth Element is back with another raid video, this time in a sort of comic book style. While it's not quite as flashy or nostalgic as earlier Fifth Element videos, it still satisfies the group's unique, cinematic flair.

There's a lot to be learned from Fifth Element's dedication to cinematic openings. Raid videos can be a tough sell to the mainstream audience, but these outrageous openings really do a good job of getting you settled in. These have been my favorite raid videos in a long, long time.

Know Your Lore, Tinfoil Hat Edition: Azeroth - Sun, 24 Mar 2013 16:00:00 EST

The World of Warcraft is an expansive universe. You're playing the game, you're fighting the bosses, you know the how -- but do you know the why? Each week, Matthew Rossi and Anne Stickney make sure you Know Your Lore by covering the history of the story behind World of Warcraft.

Last week, we took a minor plunge into the idea of Azeroth as a fully-connected entity, and what the implications of that entailed. But there's more to the story than just a matter of connectivity. We know everything is connected. But what we really don't know at this point is why. What is the purpose of Azeroth? What were the Titans thinking? Why did they choose to forgo re-originating the world after discovering the Old Gods? Why have they gone silent, ignoring Azeroth for thousands of years?

Why does Azeroth exist?

Today's Know Your Lore is a Tinfoil Hat edition, meaning the following is a look into what has gone before with pure speculation on what is to come as a result. These speculations are merely theories and shouldn't be taken as fact or official lore.

Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Mike Sacco will be your host today.

Prepare to be ANNIHILATED!

Mikk asked:

With the new 5.3 pvp changes and the announcement that resilience will be removed from most items, has there been any indication of what they are going to do with pvp heirlooms? As a recent devote to pvp, I have been working on accumulating all the pvp heirlooms and I would hate to see all that work wasted ... Maybe they will replace the pvp resilience with pvp power on heirlooms? Any info appreciated.

The patch 5.3 PTR patch notes came out before a blog about the PVP changes could be published, so I imagine we'll be hearing a lot about what the changes mean for various types of gear soon (after PAX East).

Sunday Morning Funnies: Foppish - Sun, 24 Mar 2013 12:00:00 EST

Sunday Morning Funnies is your weekly list of WoW-related web comics.

This week, we have a nice long list plus a slew of bonus material. Moeru (of Lo'meath & Huilii) has posted about her experiences at Toronto ComiCon 2013, including a few photos. Coffin, who has been recovering after a convention, posted some cool notes and drawings about the process of creating What's Shakin'.

Kuo is taking naming suggestions for a wolf and NPC posted some sketches in late February. Gratz posted several updates this week (with the much-promised action) and although Contested Territory is still on hiatus, there are several new sketches up that you might find interesting!

Trig, we're all still wishing you well and hoping for a speedy recovery! Ash (of The Trolling of Azeroth) also mentioned being sick, and we hope that by now you're doing much better.

As always, if you have any tips for comics to include, you're welcome to leave a comment with a link!

Around Azeroth: Catch me if you can - Sun, 24 Mar 2013 10:00:00 EST

Please don't taunt the immobile sha. "I'd just hit 90 on my gnome alt, and I was flying around the Summit to catch up on mining," writes submitter Whistlecheek of Gnomeregan Forever on Wyrmrest Accord (US-A). "I found myself face to face with the Sha of Anger, who looked surprised and amazed, then angry that a little pink-haired gnome was daring to get into his face. I must've really surprised him, because I was able to get right up next to him ... until I flew through his belly. Yeah. That's when I found out a) Shanger is really ticklish, b) really, REALLY ticklish, and c) he hates cute pink-haired gnomes who discover that fact."

Breakfast Topic: Do play behind, atop, or at the bleeding edge of the content curve? - Sun, 24 Mar 2013 08:00:00 EST

I always smile when I come across someone aghast at another player's unfamiliarity with a particular instance or encounter. ("It's been months since that came out!") They're like the horrified grade-schoolers in the neighborhood we used to live in who simply couldn't fathom having a playmate who didn't carry Mom or Dad's cast-off iPhone. These players can't imagine what dire circumstances might keep someone out of Throne of Thunder or how somebody who's played for a year couldn't have Dragon Soul picked clean.

I understand the sense of urgency. Riding into new expansions and patches with a level-capped character and tackling every new update as it releases builds curiosity, motivation, and emotional investment. It's supposed to. But behind the leading edge are tiers and tiers of content that's -- surprise! -- not worn out and useless. With zone updates, raid tweaks, and ongoing tuning, Blizzard works steadily to ensure that players can realistically enjoy older content, too.

Whether you're a late starter or a late bloomer, a completionist still scraping clean nooks and crannies or a time-challenged casual player who simply hasn't gotten there yet, do you play WoW at a rate that's decidedly behind the curve? Like probably most readers here at WoW Insider, are you bobbing comfortably along somewhere in the Mists of Pandaria/Thunder King experience? Or are you chafing at the bit for time and your realmmates to unlock additional bleeding-edge content, thriving on taking down the latest content as soon as it's released?

First impressions of Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft - Sat, 23 Mar 2013 20:00:00 EST

Yesterday at PAX East 2013, Blizzard unveiled their first free-to-play game, Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft. The upcoming title is a digital, collectible card game akin to Magic: The Gathering Online, but designed to be easy to learn and accessible to a larger audience. The game is currently being demonstrated on the showroom floor at PAX, and I was able to play it a couple of times yesterday afternoon.

When starting up my first game, I expected to find Hearthstone confusing because I've never played Magic: The Gathering or any other strategy card game (e.g. Pokémon TCG, Yu-Gi-Oh!) before. I am vaguely familiar with some of the terminology of MTG, having spent most of my life around hardcore players, but I don't really know the rules or how the game is played. That unfamiliarity didn't seem to get in the way of Hearthstone, though. Within two turns I understood my resource system, and also how to play and use cards. By the fifth turn I felt like I understood all the basic mechanics of combat. Then, by the time my seventh turn came around, I was cursing paladins for being overpowered and itching to play another game.

WoW Moviewatch: The Shaping of the World - Sat, 23 Mar 2013 18:00:00 EST

The music of WoW lends a lot of drama, power, and gravitas to the game. It's easy to underestimate the incredible composition that provides flavor and emotion to each zone, expansion, and even instances. For such an integral part of the game, it doesn't get enough attention.

Plasma3Music created this remix of The Shaping of the World. This is what he had to say about it:
My orchestral remix is a more dramatic and epic version of World of Warcraft's "The Shaping Of The World". My intention was to put more energy and power into the song. The remix is accompanied by beautiful landscape shots of WoW Cataclysm.

The parts and melodies from 1:36 to 2:17 are new and composed by me.
No audio clips of the original were used. Every sound, instrument and note that you hear has been carefully programmed and mixed by me.

The end result is very effective. Take the time to listen and let Plasma know what you think.

The Care and Feeding of Warriors: Preliminary DPS in Throne of Thunder - Sat, 23 Mar 2013 16:00:00 EST

Every week, WoW Insider brings you The Care and Feeding of Warriors, the column dedicated to arms, fury and protection warriors. Despite repeated blows to the head from dragons, demons, Old Gods and whatever that thing over there was, Matthew Rossi will be your host.

So we've had the Throne of Thunder for three weeks now, and we're all progressing through it at our various paces. Some of us are working on heroic bosses, others are at particular normal mode bosses, still others are primarily exploring the raid via the LFR tool. However you're going about it, you've had a couple of weeks to start seeing the new fights.

One of the things that's struck me as a DPS player so far is how varied the individual fights are. Love them or hate them (so far I can't think of one I hate although I'll admit I don't like doing Ji-Kun when I have to do nest duty) there's a wide range of mechanics at play. As a result, although this is still a fairly preliminary statement there are a few things I feel comfortable saying at this point.

Our bonus question this week was going to be about our dark, secret gaming habits. That was the plan. And then Blizzard went and released this mindblowingly awesome sounding game... so the bonus question changed. So when you're reading this, we're telling you both our guilty pleasure of gaming... and our excite about Hearthstone.

Anne Stickney (@Shadesogrey) This weekend is going to be spent working on projects around the house and getting some writing done. As for Hearthstone, it looks pretty neat! I think I may end up jumping in the beta just to play around with it and see how it works.

Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Anne Stickney (@Shadesogrey) has taken this thing over today.

I like to think those two cats are excitedly discussing anything relevant in the news. Today they are chatting about Hearthstone and whether or not they're going to sign up for the beta.

Adamndm_ asked:

Allow me to be the first to ask the obvious question we don't have a solid answer for yet: What is Hearthstone's release date?

We don't know, but supposedly it's soon -- not Blizzard Soon[TM], but actual soon!

EavenTheWarlock asked:

Q4tQ: Do you thing Hearthstone will eventually get an Android version? *tinfoil hat on* Or did they make a secret deal with apple to keep it exclusive?

They actually answered that question in their FAQ! Q: Are you supporting Android tablets? A: Hearthstone will launch on Windows, Macintosh, and, later on, iPad. We're looking into the possibility of supporting additional platforms in the future, but we don't have any further info to share at this time.

lucho_pinto asked:

I expect to see tomorrow's Q filled with Hearthstone questions that we don't know the answer to yet :D Kudos to whoever's tackling it tomorrow! I'll add my own question-that-probably-doesn't-have-an-answer-yet: Will this use/accept money from Diablo's RMAH? To buy boosters?

Around Azeroth: Hey, come out and play - Sat, 23 Mar 2013 10:00:00 EST

Submitter Brandon and a large group of wannabe dino-killers on Thrall (US) got tired of waiting for Galleon to spawn, so they decided to speed it up with the eldritch magic of a proto-drake circle. Galleon did indeed appear shortly thereafter, but after seeing the mass of dragons arrayed against him, he hearthed back to wherever he came from and called Oondasta to come to the scene for some backup. And then everyone died.
