Blizzard Responds to Extended Maintenance and Instance Problems
2009.07.27 um 16:44
We all know the drill. Wake up late on Tuesday morning. Shower. Eat a bowl of Frosted Mini-Wheats. Go to work/school. And then whenever you get the time, log onto some site devoted to WoW and gripe about maintenance. And what's worse than maintenance? Extra-maintenance!
Well it looks like Blizzard has had a very good reason for it all—all that extended maintenance you've been experiencing is going to pay off! Basically, Blizzard has been looking into the problems that players have been experiencing with servers and instances and they are trying to fix these problems. The extended maintenance has been caused by this. Read the official Blizzard post
or check it out after the break!
Strategist: Assembly of Iron
2009.07.26 um 17:50
Well, I did earn
The Siege of Ulduar
, did I not? Made an entry for each one of the Siege bosses, that I did. Made me wonder how adequate the term "siege" is, when the only Expedition forces are in the base camp and around Razorscale - looks we've been
Ulduar, not besieging it. But that's just my thoughts :)
So this time it's the
Assembly of Iron
. What many people call '
the Iron Council
'. The three Iron Generals represent each of the iron races in the Iron Army (they also love iron).
, the biggest and physically strongest of them all, is an Iron Giant with colossal strength.
is an Iron Vrykul, who has mastered the art of rune magic.
is an Iron Dwarf with a master's touch in the lightning magic, who hates being mocked for his height.
The Assembly of Iron has taken residence in the left wing of the Antechamber of Ulduar, j
Wowhead Weekly Review (July 19 - July 25)
2009.07.25 um 17:00
First off, I'm back, posting my own Weekly Review after months! I cannot believe that the last one posted by me actually was the
fifth Weekly Review
which was too long ago!
Second off, I am entering the blogosphere with the twentieth (coincidence?) Wowhead Weekly Review (which is another milestone)! Hopefully you will enjoy it!

Strategist: XT-002 Deconstructor
2009.07.24 um 18:22
Time to deconstruct another boss' strategy! Har har har!
I love silly jokes. They make me... silly. But it's true -
is the subject of today's Strategist. Similarly to the other Ulduar bosses, not a whole lot is known XT, other than the fact that he is the last boss in the Siege of Ulduar, he is a mandatory fight, and his voice is the single reason people wipe on him.
XT-002 is located in the Scrapyard, between the Formation Grounds and the Antechamber of Ulduar. He is another one of
's creations, whom XT considers to be his father. Hence the boyish voice, the diligent exercise and dutiful guard. You need to defeat XT in order to proceed further in Ulduar, even if you skip the optional Ignis and Razroscale. The Deconstructor also has a hard mode.
And now, skipping over the break, let's take a look at He-who-does-not-drop-my-
Hunter Q&A with Ghostcrawler
2009.07.23 um 13:59
This Q&A was more adventurous than the others. Just as we spotted it, it was pulled off the official forums (and website, if it ever made it there).
still had it though, so we used their version - you can find the source over at their
. I personally expect changes to be made to the original Q&A (which is what you see here), hence the pulling off. Keep an eye on the thread, we'll try to post the updated version, if there is one, as soon as we can.
Looks like everything is alright with the Q&A now. You can find the source under the quote, after the break (through nine mountains in the tenth, through nine rivers...). The
in the quote was not there before - it's the only new thing.
This time it's Hunter. Remember how I was happy about the Druid one because my next alt would be a druid? Well, the alt I am currently leveling is a
! So I am naturally excited to see what they have to say about it, and about Marksman in particular. I still haven't r

Sam Raimi to Direct Warcraft Movie
2009.07.22 um 01:56
So it looks like
was wrong, in his tongue-in-cheek prediction—it looks as though the Warcraft movie has a director—and it's
Here's the press release:
Especially interesting is the fact that
Ain't It Cool
picked up the story first, after which it was picked up by
, and only THEN did the
official press release
come out—and you may notice there's a typo in the title. Looks like the leak caught Blizzard a little off guard. ;)
o what do you guys think?
Good decision? Bad decision? Hopefully we'll have the chance to post an opinion piece on the subject this week.
Strategist: Ignis the Furnace Master
2009.07.22 um 01:00
Hello, folks! My name is
not important. What is important is that I have finally put together an Ignis guide. Many of you probably have the old giant on farm, but for those who don't - and the future generations - here it is!
Ignis the Furnace Master
is fire giant, located in Ulduar. It is unknown whether he was there originally, or if he was brought by
(although I prefer the former), but one thing is certain - he works for
just as much as Loken did. He is the one who crafted Razorscale's metal armor, and the one who created Kologarn, literally from a chunk of stone. You can find him in his Colossal Forge, on the opposite side of Razorscale.
Not intended to make fun of Dorkins. I love the opening :)
Druid Q&A Follow-up
2009.07.21 um 18:58
did raise points interesting enough for Bornakk to answer a few additional questions. I am not a very active druid player, but one of the things he said looks very interesting to me:

Any chance I am not going to see any "

A Little Off-Topic: Fallen Earth Beta
2009.07.21 um 18:56
I know that the Wowhead Blog is not exactly a source for general MMORPG news, but this seemed cool enough to bring to your attention.
The guys over at

Increase in Hacked Accounts: Cause for Concern?
2009.07.20 um 18:52
As someone who's been reading and posting in Blizzard's
Customer Service Forum
for over a year now, I can tell you that I've seen my fair share of complaints. Sadly, though, I've been noticing an increase in one particular thing—the amount of accounts that have been compromised or "hacked."
Should this be a cause for concern? With the number of compromised accounts increasing by the day, in spite of the numerous warnings Blizzard has put out, maybe it's time to both clear up the misconceptions as to how an account can become compromised and remind ourselves what we can do to prevent a compromise from happening—or for some of us, from having it happen again.
Reduced Cooldown on Paid Character Transfers
2009.07.20 um 13:24
Eyonix, on the official forums, has just let us know that they're changing the cooldown on paid character transfers from 30 days to 3 days, in an effort to lend a hand to people who make a character transfer they regret!
Lot of big changes coming up for transfers these days. I'm definitely curious to hear how you guys feel this is going to affect the game experience.
The original blue post is after the break!
