Screenshot of the Day Now Featuring Cataclysm
Blizzard have just posted via their Twitter feed at
to let everyone know that they will now be posting Cataclysm screenshots to the
Screenshot of the Day
feature on the
official World of Warcraft website
There's no word on how long they'll be teasing us with these great screenshots of what's in store, but I hope it's at least until the Cataclysm Beta begins and we can start taking some awesome screenshots of our own!
Starting today, our Screenshot of the Day section at worldofwarcraft.com will feature unique #WoW #Cataclysm images!
Today's screenshot features a Gilgoblin, perhaps found in the upcoming
dungeon of the
Sunken City of Vashj'ir
We'll make sure to include screenshots in our

Blizzard has released a pretty awesome of preview of the

The new Troll starting area will be for levels 1-5, and you will initially tasked with protecting the local raptors and their hatchlings from the sorcery of a nearby sea witch, slaying beasts that prey on our fellow tribe members and assaulting the naga who have overrun part of the isle.
Also, it is during the
event for Cataclysm that we will have a first hand chance to help in the reclaiming of the area for the trolls new starting zone!

Icecrown Citadel Raid Buff Increased to 15%
It's been a busy week in the World of Warcraft! With this latest raid reset, the
Cidadela da Coroa de Gelo
-specific raid-wide buff has had its effect increased again!
Brado Guerreiro de Grito Infernal
Força de Wrynn
will now increase damage, healing, absorption effects and health by
You may remember that the buff was last increased to 10% at the end of last month, up from the 5% it provided when first launched at the beginning of March. Seems our
was correct, and this latest increase to the buff's effects was applied exactly four weeks later. I guess we can now assume we'll see the buff reach a staggering
on May 25th,
on June 22nd, and
on July 20th.
This buff should definitely help out players trying to down some of the more demanding hard modes in Icecrown Citadel. Personally, I don't think that a lot of Icecrown Citadel's encounters were scaled properly for their intended difficulty level to begin with (ie. 10-man modes being downed without 25-man gear), so hopefully this helps even out the playing ground a bit more. Remember, you still have
X-53 Touring Rocket Available Today
You may recall that Blizzard announced some changes to the Recruit-a-Friend
mount reward a little while ago. If you had an unclaimed Zhevra, the announcement said, or if you decided to recruit a friend in the near future, you would have the normal Zhevra reward changed to a spectacular
Foguete de Passeio X-53
Well, the big day is today. As of today, April 27, 2010 (possibly after the maintenance), if you recruit a friend or if you have Zhevras waiting to be assigned to one of you characters, you will start getting the X-53's!
Here is the short post by Zarhym:
Time is running out for those who wish to claim their Zhevra, as the launch of the X-53 Touring Rocket is now scheduled for tomorrow, Tuesday, April 27! If you’ve fulfilled all of the Recruit-A-Friend requirements necessary to claim a mount now but choose not to claim the Zhevra, you will be able to claim the X-53 Touring Rocket instead once it launches. Sounds like they’re firing it up for a final test run now....

Cataclysm PvE Badge and PvP Point Changes
Blizzard just posted changes to the badge system in
... they are going to become Hero and Valor points! Basically the PvP point system being applied to PvE raiding.
will be earned from most dungeons (much like
Emblema de Triunfo
will be from high-tier raids (like
Emblema de Gelo
While there will be a maximum cap of Valor Points you can earn each week I personally think this could be one of the better changes to come to the badge/emblem/point system since the introduction of them in The Burning Crusade. So what does everyone think of the changes?
On the PvP side,
will replace Arena Points as the complement to Honor Points. Personal rating requirements will also be removed from almost all items, including weapons.
You can read all the details in the original blue post, available after the break.
Cataclysm Raid Progression Refinements
Some clarifications have been added to the bottom of the post.
Another blue post from the blue world of blue Blizzardness descends from the skies - this time it's about how raid progression is going to work in
10- and 25-man raids will share the same lockout.
10- and 25-man raids will share the same loot.
Heroic loot will be, like in Icecrown, just a buffed up version of the Normal loot.
The raid leader will be able to decide between 10-man and 25-man (possibly on a boss-to-boss basis), much like you can now choose between Normal and Heroic mode for a raid.
Since 25-man raids will drop the exact same items as 10-man, to promote people actually going to 25-man raiding, Blizzard is making 10-man encounters drop less loot per player (actual items, badges, gold...). In short, if you can get 25 people, you will get more out of the raid than if you were to go with 10.
Heroic mode for the bosses will be unlocked simply defeating a specific boss as few as (probably) 1-2 times. Limited attempts will likely go away completely, except for rare bosses (e.g. Algalon).
A Tour of the REAL World of Warcraft - Blizzard's Headquarters
It's midnight here, and I'm still awake, pretending I don't have to be up for gym (and work!) in a matter of hours. Thankfully, tonight my persistence in staying up late breeding Pokémon and browsing the Internet has paid off! I stumbled upon a post on one of my favorite sites of all-time,
, who were recently invited to tour Blizzard's Irvine campus (again).
I don't know about you guys, but I
these sort of things because I'm just like every other geeky kid out there who wants to grow up and design video games for a living. Being able to see where the magic happens AND being able to go, "Holy crap, they have a SLIDE in their food court!" just blows my mind.
(Please note, I don't think Blizzard actually has a slide in their food court, but I remember reading ages ago that

ZAM Interview with Richard Knaak
Cody Bye, the Director of Content of ZAM, has just interviewed
, one of the most famous writers of novels and short stories for not only World of Warcraft, but a number of other fictional worlds. Knaak's "Blizzard" bibliography includes novels like
(the latest official Warcraft novel on the market), 3 standalone Diablo novels,
The Sin War
War of the Ancients
trilogy, as well as 2 standalone novels other than
. In addition to those, he has an impressive number of Dragonlance, Dragonrealm, Conan, individual novels... not to mention his short fiction pieces and the manga.
Sadly, this interview didn't quench my thirst for lore (could anything?), but it was an interesting read nonetheless. The interview is after the break!
