Rumors And ScuttlebuttEdit
It’s An All-3.3 Rumors And ScuttlebuttEdit
It’s been over two months now since patch 3.2 arrived in World Of Warcraft, bringing the Crusader’s Colosseum, Tier 9 epic gear, Isle Of Conquest battleground, and all of the other accouterments we’ve come to expect from a major patch to the game. Well folks, we reckon that we’re now less than 2 months away from the release of 3.3, which hit the Public Test Realm a couple of weeks ago and has started to generate buzz all over the WoW community.
Kosuke from Aerie Peak writes: I just want to ask, which class do you guys’ know or think has the trouble pulling the most sustained DPS? With just in-game knowledge and seeing people play their characters during raids and looking at a damage meter such as Recount, could you guys add your thoughts into this?
Regur from the Azuremyst server writes: I recently had confirmed that I am on a horrible server for the horde. We are outnumbered 4:1 in the Alliance favor and I’m tired of always losing Wintergrasp. So I have decided to find a new server, but I’m not entirely sure how to go about finding one. What would you guys suggest?
Drop Of The WeekEdit
An Arctic IncentiveEdit
Blizzard is full of surprises. We’ve been talking about authenticators and Battle.net for over a year, but as everyone knows, security alone isn’t a perfect incentive to use them. This week, Blizzard sweetened the pot. It’s Mr. Chilly the penguin! He’s an in-game vanity pet available to every player of World Of Warcraft. All you have to do to get Mr. Chilly, if you have not already, is merge your account into Battle.net before it becomes mandatory on Nov. 11. After you do, you will receive his egg in your mail in-game.
