Surprise! It’s The Argent Tournament!Edit
Blizzard waited until right before the 3.1 public test realms went live this week to drop a big announcement on us – the next patch will not only contain new raids, nerfs, buffs, new quests, dual-specs and A NEW CAR!!!… just kidding about that last one… 3.1 will not only be a big content patch, but it’s also coming with a one-time event to top all. We hope. That is, if you have a character above, say, level 77. It’s The Argent Tournament, and we’ve got a first look what this in-game event has in store.

How To Get The Armored MurlocEdit
Last week on The Instance, we talked about the start of the 2009 open Arena Tournament, and mentioned that one thing that got everyone listening – loot. On Tuesday, Blizzard CM Aratil made a post in the WoW forums clarifying several points about the Arena tournament. Simply put, folks, you should be participating in PvP madness.
We Said We Were Going To Talk About ItEdit
We’ve gotten quite a few follow-up inquiries from listeners about our promise to discuss the WoWMatrix controversy. Many of them have been bitter complaints from small-ish mod writers who feel that WoWMatrix is a great killjoy in the WoW modding community. Many have been odes to joy from WoWMatrix users who couldn’t imagine playing without the utility. Do we have a solution? Maybe.
