Just wanted to try and take you guys away from Cataclysm (yeah, right!) for another news roundup!
I don't know if you guys heard, but Cataclysm launched on Tuesday!

The undead armies of the Lich King have been vanquished, and the campaign in Northrend has come to an end. Now Azeroth faces a new threat, as Deathwing the Destroyer has burst forth from the heart of the Maelstrom, unleashing widespread devastation upon Kalimdor and the Eastern Kingdoms. As the world teeters on the brink of destruction, champions of the Alliance and Horde must embark on a quest that will take them from the World Tree to the bottom of the Great Sea to the elemental planes themselves, looking for a way to bring an end to Deathwing’s reign of ruin.

Wowhead Exclusive: Level 80 (85?) Elite Tauren Chieftain NEW SONG, "Warriors of Azeroth"
2010-12-07 à 19:21
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
s out there—it's entitled
Warriors of Azeroth!
This is a

anywhere else on the Internet!

Guild Achievements No Longer Reward Guild XP
2010-12-07 à 16:42
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.

First Round of Cataclysm Hotfixes Now Live!
2010-12-07 à 15:08
Blizzard have just released yet another (huge) batch of hotfixes for patch 4.0.3a, addressing post-Cataclysm release bugs. Many specific quest issues were addressed with this patch, so if you were experiencing any problems check to see if it's been resolved! Not too many major changes, though if you were wasting time killing the opposing faction's flight trainer instead of bothering to experience new content, Blizzard has made it a bit tougher for you.
Check out a detailed list of hotfixes after the break!
Cataclysm Launch Event Gallery
2010-12-07 à 14:15
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:
Player and Guild Experience Changes in Cataclysm
2010-12-07 à 00:55
Blizzard has made some posts clarifying some of the new experience mechanics in Cataclysm. Firstly, (as intended)
guild experience will be capped on a per-day basis
, meaning that your guild will not gain experience after a certain point until the next day. Apparently, the EU realms went live without the cap enabled, but corrective measures were taken and guild experience was reset for some guilds.
once you reach the max-level for an expansion, you will only gain 10% experience from killing NPCs from that expansion.
In other words, once you hit 80, there will be no AoE grinding of squishies in Northrend to try to level to 82 or higher. You can still get full experience for
, but you'll need to move on to the Cataclysm zones to get full experience from NPCs.
