Holy Paladin Nerfs Explained
Nethaera just jumped on to the official forums to let us know about a holy paladin nerf:
no longer generates Holy Power when used with
Luz da Aurora
isn't healing for as much.
Looks like paladin healers were spamming Holy Light on the tank to build up Holy Power, then using Light of Dawn to heal the rest of the raid for free.
These hotfixes were intentional and we wanted to share more information about the "why" for you all here:
Mana is supposed to matter for healers, and in the case of Holy paladins, that just wasn’t happening. We were seeing raid groups attempting to learn new bosses where the other healers were out of mana while the paladins were still at 90% of mana. We also thought the experience of paladins healing harder heroic dungeons was inconsistent with that of other healers, or our design intent. We thought it was only a matter of time before groups started going out of their way to stack paladins for raids or recruit them for dungeon runs, which of course is not our intent. For this reason, we thought it was important to address this point now rather than sitting on it until a fut

PvP Season 9 Has Begun
The first PvP season of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm is underway! Players are now able to compete in level-85 Rated Arenas for top gear, items, and titles -- and for the first time ever, they can enter level-85
to fight for the same rewards available through Arenas, along with the original World of Warcraft PvP titles. Players can also participate in unranked
, skirmishes that allow Battleground and Arena teams to hone their skills against opponents of their choosing -- even if they're in the same faction. So prepare yourselves, aspiring Grand Marshals and High Warlords, as the struggle between the Horde and the Alliance is about to get bloodier.

We've added a new feature to the database:
You can now view a complete list of all the different currencies that are available in the game. Each currency has a short article explaining what the currency is and how to get it, and tabbed lists of everything you can buy with that currency, and any quests that reward the currency.

Blizzard Launching "War Games": PvP Practice Matches
Blizzard is implementing a
system—a system broadly similar to the old Arena skirmish system.
Basically, with a simple text command, you can now start a "War Game" against another group in a battleground, or another arena team, the matches don't actually count for achievements or currency rewards, and you can only initiate them against other people on your realm—but it's a great way to test out new players in PvP, or hold grudge matches against old enemies.
The new system opens up with Arena Season 9!
The full blue post is after the break, complete with a Q&A.

Normal Loot Upgraded for Blackrock Caverns and Throne of the Tides
Astute Wowhead users will have actually caught this before I did—Blizzard has upgraded all the loot from Normal
Throne of the Tides
. The old items were ilvl 279, and have now been upgraded to ilvl 308.
You can see a full list of the changed items here:
It's a good thing, too. I've got to tell you, considering the fact that quest greens in
were already ilvl 272, 85 blues coming in at only ilvl 279 was a little odd—and it made it REALLY difficult to collect the gear necessary to meet the gear requirement for heroics.
I wonder if all future changes are going to be this...unannounced?

Guild XP Stealth Nerfed to 1/4?
Posts in the
Achievements and Guild Advancement
forum are indicating that
Guild XP gains have been nerfed by 75%.
It looks like only 1/4th of individual experience is contributing to guild experience now, rather than a full 1:1 ratio.
We tested this in game, and our findings sync up with the posts we're seeing in the forums.There hasn't been any announcement about this on the official forums—so we're not sure if this is a stealth nerf, a bug, or what. Keep your eyes peeled, and we'll update you as we know more.
Here's the original post:
We're getting 1/4th of xp now contributing to guild xp, and not a peep from any blue about this.
I'd like to trust that there's a reason for this, or an explanation.
Maybe on weekends it's reduced to 1/4th and weekdays it goes up to full to more easily allow caps to be hit weekdays.
Maybe rep affects xp contribution now.
Maybe it's a bug.
Maybe at 85 things even out.
Maybe they went overboard on the nerf, and are going to scale it back up some.
In any case, gett

Wowhead Exclusive: Level 80 (85?) Elite Tauren Chieftain NEW SONG, "Warriors of Azeroth"
So since there were a ton of other media outlets present at the Cataclysm Launch Event, I was convinced that someone else would have a fancy professional video of this up long before I had the opportunity to do it myself, but It's 5:30 and I still don't see any other videos. So, here it is!
The Artist Formerly Known As Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain has written a new song!
This one is dedicated to all the

Guild Achievements No Longer Reward Guild XP
Nethaera posted on the official forums a little while ago to let us know that
guild achievements no longer reward guild experience.
This is a pretty significant nerf, since guild experience is capped on a daily basis—and up until recently, guild achievements were able to reward experience bonuses
above and beyond
the daily cap.
It looks like the result of this was that guilds were leveling a lot faster than Blizzard intended. See the the full post after the break.

Cataclysm Launch Event Gallery
So I'm home from the Cataclysm Launch Event!
it was a great time last night, lots of people there. One person said there were over 9000—but I realized later that may have been a joke. I even saw a lot of people who I had seen two years ago at the Wrath release event—I even ran into John Finch, the guy who was first in line last year. He said he'd arrived 48 hours before, and was still only 20th in line.
Once again, I want to thank Blizzard for NOT being the kind of company who tries to create buzz by not having enough copies of the game at launch. I wasn't there until about 7pm, and I still got a Collector's Edition. :)
This whole process has been kind of nostalgic for me, because for those of you who've been with us for a while, you may know that our discussion and picture gallery of the original Wrath launch event two years ago was actually our very
of blog posts. So with that in mind, I leave you now as I left you then, with the most important part of the whole process:
