Blizzard Withdrawing RealID Plan for Official Forums
09/07/2010 a las 12:19
In a statement released today, Blizzard says that they have decided against using RealID to identify forum users on the official forums. Blizzard
that they were moving to a forum system where everyone was identified by their real names. Citing user feedback, they've decided that it was not in the best interests of the community to move forward with that plan.
The statement (seen below) was written by Blizzard's CEO, by Mike Morhaime. It was posted on the forum by Nethaera.
I'd like to take some time to speak with all of you regarding our desire to make the Blizzard forums a better place for players to discuss our games. We've been constantly monitoring the feedback you've given us, as well as internally discussing your concerns about the use of real names on our forums. As a result of those discussions, we've decided at this time that real names will not be required for posting on official Blizzard forums.
It's important to note that we still remain committed to improving our forums. Our efforts are driven 100% by the de

Blizzard Announce Changes To Talents, Specialization and Mastery
07/07/2010 a las 11:55
Zarhym just posted an announcement on the official forums with Blizzard's change in design with how talents and mastery will be changing for an upcoming
One of the major changes mentioned is that instead of putting talents where ever you want starting at level 10 you are asked what would would like your
to be. After picking your spec you will only be allowed to put talents into that tree until 31 points are spent.
Another change (this is a
one) is you will only gain talent points every
level. This means by level 85 you will only have
41 talent points
The final change is Mastery will no longer be affected by how many talent points you have spent in the tree but instead be given as flat percentages. The percentages can be increased by the mastery stat on items which you will be able to make use of when you learn the new Mastery skill around level 75.
So a quick rundown on the changes:
At level 10,
you will be asked to specialize into a single talent tree
You can only spend talent points in th
The Weekly Marmot - Cataclysm Zone & Quest Design

This week, I get entirely too excited about how incredibly awesome questing is in the expansion. No longer will leveling from 1-60 just be the part of the game you try to breeze through as quickly as possible so you can get into the "more interesting" quests. Don't believe me? Watch this.
Also, my wedding ring fell off in a lake.
In the Future, All Posts on the Official Forums Will Show RealID
06/07/2010 a las 13:00
According to a post Nethaera just put up on the official forums, future posts on the official WoW forums will be posted by RealID, rather than by character name. This means that when you post on the official forums, you will be identified by your first and last name.
Nethaera has posted a thread in the official forums detailing the reasons for this change. Most important to note is that it will
not be retroactive
—previous posts on the forums will still be printed the same way. Only
posts will be converted.
This is an interesting change. I admit I'm concerned a bit—partially about privacy issues but mostly about security. But honestly, my first and last name are up all over the Internet already. I have a blog at
, so anybody who happens to be curious about my personal info can find it there. What I'm
curious about is to see how this affects flaming and trolling on the forums. Would you behave differently on the forums if anybody who read your post knew your real name? Time to find out!
The blue posts are after the break!

Cataclysm Dungeon Bosses
04/07/2010 a las 05:11
A couple of builds ago Cataclysm alpha testers saw the first "real" achievements from the new expansion - achievements different from the random funny placeholders and the standard exploration achievements. I am talking about the dungeon (and some raid) achievements. And although they were cool in and of themselves, to me there was something else intriguing hiding inside them - the knowledge of what the different instances will be called and what kind of bosses they will feature. From this we could even gather some very basic and preliminary information about who (or
) those bosses will be. Interesting stuff for me and other players eager to learn more about the expansion.
So! Let me get to the good stuff and present you with a list of all the bosses in the Cataclysm dungeons, as well as with some short description and links whenever they are available. Keep in mind, only Blackrock Caverns and Throne of the Tides are available for testing (even if some of us managed to sneak inside the Stonecore), so information beyond those 2 (3) will be
virtually non-existent. Also, keep an eye out for a similar blog for raids!

The latest news on the Internet - Cataclysm closed beta is hitting us good! But we all know this. What's more important is that since the NDA has been lifted, we'll be showering you with tons of new information, blogs, guide pages, videos, screenshots, and dataz.
just posted some good stuff about the
in Cataclysm (and you should check it out if you haven't), so I decided to go a different route - do a dungeon, see how it feels, give a few screenshots, and a bit of an overall opinion about how the experience is.
Right now the only two dungeons available for testing are
Throne of the Tides
. So I went to my good old friend, the Dungeon Finder, and said "Yo dawg, you heard I like dungeons? Give me a random one!" And so the
