So the 3.0.2 patch for the World of Warcraft was released by Blizzard yesterday. The patch, called "Echoes of Doom," features all sorts of updates and is furthering along the servers to get ready for the Wrath of the Lich King expansion, which is set for release on November 13th.
Blizzard is one of those companies that has a very firm policy on releasing new products. Namely, they release them “when it’s done”, rather than setting a release date many months in advance. However, they have broken form and revealed when they are planning to release the latest WoW expansion.
Since it was announced earlier in the month that the beta keys were being emailed out for Wrath of the Lich King, I’ve been pretty much checking my email non-stop. Well last night I finally saw the email I was looking for. That’s right, we can now bring you firsthand details of the beta.
Anyone has dabbled a bit in WoW know what a Mooncloth Bag is, well now you can own one in real life. Through the beloved Etsy of course, granted it is kind of a girly depiction of the bag.
Remember that patch for World of Warcraft I mentioned a little while ago? This was the one which lowered not only the cost of obtaining your first mount, but also the level requirement as well. Well this patch has finally hit the live servers, making low-level characters everywhere very excited.
The gaming community has a tendency to get a bad reputation, especially when it comes to the mainstream media. Thankfully, the LA Times has a story about a married couple playing WoW together and it’s actually positive.
The story is about Brad and Cynthia Murdock who are happily married and play WoW together. She actually started playing with him, so instead of grumbling she tried out the game.
We were hoping to hear some kind of announcement regarding the status of the Wrath of the Lich King Beta during Blizzard’s WWI. There was little information to be had at the event, however, they have just announced that they are now taking applications for the beta.
Anyone who frequents the world of Azeroth is likely familiar with the danger of your account being hacked. Those that would do harm against your account have a variety of methods, most of which cannot be completely defended against. Common sense about passwords and not downloading unfamiliar add-ons helps a lot, however, if you’re still worried about your account being accessed by someone else, then you might want to get your hands on the Blizzard Authenticator.
It seems that the merger between Activision and Blizzard is already beginning to bear fruit. So how does one combine two of the largest titles from each company into something cool for the masses? You release a World of Warcraft song for Guitar Hero.
If you had a chance to play an ad-supported version of World of Warcraft, rather than shelling out $15 per month, would you go for it? Well apparently that’s the way Blizzard had originally intended to make the game.
