Isle of Thunder Preview: PvE and PvP Dailies, Troll Transmog, Single-Player Scenarios
The 5.2 PTR is up to testing Stage 2 of the Isle of Thunder questing! We last previewed it during Stage 0, so there are some new things available such as the option to choose between PvE and PvP dailies, single-player scenarios tied to each phase, and the addition of troll-themed drops like
Jaula do Vinculador de Loa Melancólico
from Zandalari mobs.
PvE or PvP Daily Quests

As for PvP quests, accepting any of these quests will flag you for PvP, even on a PvE realm. These quests send you into the heart of the enemy's base and while none of them specifically ask you to kill enemy players, you'll definitely be running into them as you kill enemy g

5.2 PTR: New Reputations and Rewards Preview
There are three new factions in Patch 5.2:
Ofensiva do Kirin Tor
. Here's an overview of their different types of reputation rewards:

After the Dalaran fallout in 5.1, these two new factions led by Jaina Proudmoore and Lor'themar Theron respectively are investigating the new island both to help the Pandaren and profit for their own political gain--check out our

to have Valor Point rewards, but since 5.2 was a very raid-heavy patch, epic rewards costing

From Zarhym: "These rewards are ilevel 496 and will only accommodate a few slots, as they aren’t intended to be very attractive to raiders (including those running LFR),

5.1 PTR: New Alliance Scenarios - Lion's Landing, A Little Patience
The latest PTR patch opened up new scenarios for the Alliance and the Horde. Today we'll take a look at the two Alliance ones--"A Little Patience" and "Lion's Landing." In these scenarios, you help the Alliance defeat the Horde, in spite of being at a disadvantage, by using teamwork and organization.

With Mists of Pandaria a week away, we're excited to bring you some interviews covering the expansion!

Q&A with Blizzard's Creative Development Team
We're used to hearing answers about class balance in beta from Blizzard developers, but today we have some details about WoW's lore moving forward from the Creative Development team!
The heroes of Azeroth have faced down many foes; blazing Elemental Lords freed from titanic prisons, mighty demons from beyond the stars, armies of shambling corpses and even eldritch gods who defy explanation. And yet, there exist only a chosen few equipped to deal with the powerful beast that is . . . Ask CDev. Through the heroic efforts of our brave loremasters here at CDev Publishing, we proudly present to you the answers to Ask CDev #3!

Mists of Pandaria Preview: Scott Mercer and Ion Hazzikostas Interview
Blizzard just posted two important news stories. First off, they have a very in-depth interview about the raids in Mists of Pandaria. There are some important tidbits shared in this discussion:
Mogu’shan Vaults will be the first raid and it will probably be delayed up to a week on release, so there is less pressure to hit level cap as a raider.
The other two raids will unlock weeks after Vaults to give raiders even more time acclimate.
Lore has been really thought out this time around. The instances should ideally flow into each other, as opposed to back in WotLK where they felt so jarringly different. For example, you'll fight the Sha of Fear at the end of one raid only to have her flee to the next.
The raid rewards players with items with the following item levels: item level 476 for Raid Finder, 489 for normal mode, and 502 for Heroic.
There’s also a new mount that can be obtained by defeating Elegon, a celestial dragon found deep within the Vault:
Rédeas da Serpente das Nuvens Astral
Other than that, Blizzard also confirmed that
will be delayed so it doesn't make players feel rushed to experience Mists of Pandaria as well as do the holiday. This is welcomed news, as mo

News Round Up: Beta Raid Preview, Ghostcrawler Class Feedback, Tides of War
In today's news round up, we've got visual previews of the Mogu and Mantid raid bosses open for testing on beta! We also have the corresponding Encounter Journals toggled for all featured bosses.
As far as blue posts, Ghostcrawler has answered many more questions on the Beta Class Balance Analysis thread, which we've organized by topic, as well as clarified PvP Power. Blizzard also announced the release of the latest Warcraft book,
Tides of War
, which focuses on Jaina Proudmoore, and did a summer spotlight on Blackrock Mountain.
We also have a preview of the new
Collector's Edition vanity items

Imperial Vizier Zor'lok
Zor'lok shrieks his proclamations so they're heard throughout the sprawling mantid palace. He is the Voice of the Empress, and his words alone inspire the insectoid race's warriors to give their lives without question. Unwaveringly loyal, Zor'lok will stop at nothing to defend his beloved matriarch, regardless of the corruption within her.

Mists of Pandaria Zone Preview: Townlong Steppes
Estepes de Taolong
, intended for level 88+ players to quest in, is a dangerous place. The Pandaren generally live on the other side of the Great Wall, but the mantid have burst through their defenses a hundred years early. The Pandaren have no other choice but to bravely enter Townlong and investigate the majestic empire of the Mantids--while also dealing with the vicious Yaungol, enraged by the Mantid's attacks on their territory.
On the other side of the wall lies all sorts of dark secrets--cloudserpents turned to stone, great trees corrupted by magic, swarms of elite mobs.

News Round Up: Class Beta Feedback, PvP Gear, Leaders of Azeroth
Today's news round up has a ton of blue posts. First off, there's a lot of detailed beta feedback for
s, including discussions about Level 90 Druid talents and Rapture for priests. There's also discussion about PvP gear in Mists,
nerfs, Dungeon bugs on beta, and the recent completion of the Leaders of Azeroth short story series. Click the cut to see all the posts!
PvP Gear in Mists
You will have less resilience on your gear coming into beta. However, you will also have some base resilience and that base should offset the PvP power that everyone is getting. The net result should be that you take about the same damage you do today in a PvP setting, but will take less damage from someone not wearing PvP gear.
Currently on your beta build, I believe the ratio of power to resilience is off. You should have more resilience and less power than you do.
It is entirely possible that some new talents or spell changes will result in too much burst damage in isolated cases, but when giving feedback, it's useful for us if you distinguish between those and survivabili

Mists of Pandaria: Jade Forest Quest Preview
Floresta de Jade
has undergone an extensive revision since we first previewed it, to better demonstrate the Alliance and Horde conflict. This zone is the first zone players will reach upon questing in Pandaria. Unlike past expansions, there are not two options for starting zones.
Players will acquaint themselves with Pandaren culture, as well as the Jinyu and Hozen. The Alliance will trace Anduin Wrynn's disappearance, and both sides will have a tragic clash by the
Templo da Serpente de Jade
, a new 5-player dungeon. Players will also have to return to The Jade Forest at 90 to train with
Ordem da Serpente das Nuvens
in order to ride Cloud Serpent mounts.
Of note: some of the early quests reward items that resemble Tier 9 raid gear, like
Jade Forest Quest Chains
Since we first previewed the zone, some changes have been made. Here's some screenshots from the new areas.

The instanced version of the
Temple of the Jade Serpent
looks practically identical to the outdoor quest version--except it's been corrupted by the Sha. The library and water wings are accessible, as is the central area where questgivers and monks trained formerly. After questing through The Jade Forest, it's intriguing to find out how the temple ended up in such a state.

Mists of Pandaria Interviews and News Round Up
Blue posters were hard at work yesterday, covering a variety of topics: LFR's new loot system, item squish, female pandaren, DotA-style battlegrounds, new models, and as a bonus--a creative blog covering Mists' content features. Here's what's new since yesterday's coverage:
There will be many more options for her hairstyle, face, and features. There will also be options to have a long tail, or a more traditional pandaren stub tail.

Escalating tensions between the Alliance and Horde have broken out into open warfare. The roar of cannons blacken the sky while naval engagements around the globe fill the seas with blood. As the clash of mortal armies spins the world into chaos, a continent -- once shielded by impenetrable mists -- suddenly manifests itself in the southern oceans. There’s no question that this resource-rich new land will be at the center of a global conflict. Will the Mists of Pandaria part to reveal Azeroth’s salvation?

Questing in Cataclysm: The Best Quests and Rewards
With a bit of a break this holiday weekend, it's time for an old-fashioned quirky guide--this time on quests and fun quest rewards.
Around a year ago, the revamped 1-60 content was unveiled, providing players with a fresh way to complete Loremaster! While most everyone is focused on the end-game now, sadly only viewing quests as Molten Front dailies, there's many interesting quests and rewards along the way. With 4.3 on the horizon, take some time before the chaos starts up again to check out some of the following quests. From silly to serious, you'll learn a bit about Azeroth's lore and collect some unique rewards along the way.
The first table covers interesting quest chains (by no means a complete list!), organized by continent. The second table covers quirky quest rewards--gear, pets, mounts, fun trinkets, consumables, disguises, and more! (Disclaimer: mild spoilers.)
Some old favorites were removed in Cataclysm--from small chains like saving Trey Lightforge in Felwood, to epic chains like Fallen Hero of the Horde. But there's still something for everyone, whether you're interested in completing

Orange: A Guide to all Legendary Weapons
With the buzz about the teaser information for
Fangs of the Father
, it's a good time to go back and look at the other legendaries Blizzard has implemented across expansions. Many of these weapons have similarly striking questlines and unique models--even if you can't transmogrify them, they're worth collecting. Whether you're trying to farm one of these for the looks or lore, or were the first person in your guild to receive one during progression, legendaries have a special place in everyone's heart.

Bashiok's "Unintelligible" Notes
I've kept most of my note pads since I've been on the community team, circa pre-BC, and upon going over them I realize two things: that people may enjoy remembering some old game changes I happened to write down, and secondly probably not because my note taking back then was usually so horrible that no sense can be made of them.
