Big News Of The WeekEdit
Blizzard Brings The TunesEdit
Just when you thought you’d never hear a WoW Soundtrack story called the big news of anything, Blizzard unexpectedly got the soundtracks from StarCraft, Diablo II, Warcraft III, World of Warcraft, and The Burning Crusade all published for sale on iTunes this week, and the clamor has been impressive. But what made the move even better? Discovery Download placed the overture from the forthcoming Diablo 3 into iTunes for free for a week. That week ends in two days, presumably on September 8th!
Competitive Gaming This WeekendEdit
The 2008 North American and European Warcraft Finals will be taking place this weekend, September 6-7, in Boston, Massachusetts, and Madrid, Spain. These events will feature the top eight qualifiers from the 2008 World of Warcraft Arena and Warcraft III tournaments for their respective regions. Attendees will also have the opportunity to try out demos of Wrath of the Lich King and StarCraft II on-site. Admission is free, so come by and check it out if you’re in the area.
Rumors And ScuttlebuttEdit
Stop Trying So Hard To Get To 80Edit
Tigole posted on the official forums yesterday that Blizzard has “decided to remove the titles for the Realm First Feats of Strength that are associated with reaching level 80. We’ve also removed the titles associated with the Realm First Feats of Strength associated with gaining 450 skill in the professions and secondary skill. Lastly, we’ve removed the title associated with Realm First to accomplish the Northrend Vanguard achievement.”

I have a question thats been buggin me for the past year. Where do you get the commendation signets that the guys in stormwind and ironforge (and other cities I guess) with the blue question marks are asking for. I thought those were from battlegrounds but I guess not.
