Cataclysm Beta: New Macintosh Repair Tool
2010-08-09 à 15:20
With the new
released last week in the Cataclysm beta, Blizzard has also apparently decided to sneak in something that has been missing from the Macintosh client for quite some time.
works exactly like the Windows version, in that it will check your MPQ files against the current patch file and restores any that are corrupt. Now instead of reinstalling the game or restoring it from backup, Macintosh users will have an easy way to restore their World of Warcraft installation!
for the heads up on this!

Wowhead Server Upgrades
2010-08-05 à 16:29
Astute visitors have probably noticed that the site hasn't been operating as well as it normally does today. The reason for that is
we've migrated the site to a new set of web servers with upgraded hardware
. We're in the process of tweaking things to get everything working optimally again. In the meantime, please pardon our digital dust. :)

All I have to say is, the Goblin starting experience was clearly directed by Michael Bay.
Oh, and balls.
Blizzard Cataclysm Preview: Southern Barrens
2010-08-05 à 12:27
Blizzard has just posted an interesting zone preview on their European forums, spotlighting one of the most drastically changed classic zones in World of Warcraft -
! In this brief Q+A, Blizzard details their epic redesign of the Horde's beloved Barrens into two different zones, featuring Southern Barrens as a new 30-35 Alliance and Horde leveling zone!
Initially, as a Horde player, I didn't really see any reason I should care that Alliance have wrecked Camp Taurajo, as I never thought of it as being critical in any way. It basically served as nothing more than a reminder that, back in my day, we didn't have that flight path in the Barrens and we had to walk fifteen miles down the Gold Road to look for
. However, once I got out there and actually saw what was done to Camp Taurajo, I'll admit it fueled that good ol' fashioned feeling of bloodthirsty rivalry that hasn't been present in quite some time since we've all grown so accustomed to rubbing shoulders and inspecting each ot
Reforging Now Available in Cataclysm Beta
2010-08-05 à 00:51
, which we mentioned two weeks ago
, is finally active in the beta. It is a rather simple process—Alliance side you will need to visit in Stormwind near the Stockades, ask a guard for the nearest Thaumaturge. The Horde equivalent is in Orgrimmar's Cleft of Shadows. When you speak to the NPC, it asks you to drag and drop the item you want reforged. After dropping the item in the slot it asks which stat you would like to reduce and what you would like to increase.
An example (which is in the screenshots) is taking 32 Haste Rating from , and adding 32 Mastery Rating to it. After clicking
, it will make the changes—and bringing any reforged item back and clicking restore will turn the item back to its original form. As this example is a Tier piece which cannot be vendored it only costs 1 gold while any other pieces will cost their vendor price.
Cataclysm Model Update - Neptulon and Goblin Cars!
2010-08-04 à 23:10
As all Cataclysm Beta participants are expected to happily redownload and reinstall the client using the
new-and-improved (or so they say!) Launcher
, my joyous adventures taking screenshots for our
have come to a temporary halt. But that won't stop me; Wowhead demands eyecandy (and justice)!
managed to find a few more Cataclysm 3D models that I completely forgot to post - UNTIL NOW! Check out some new models after the break!
The Weekly Marmot - The Cataclysm Healing Game (Part 2)
2010-08-03 à 23:21
This week, in part 2 of my discussion on the effects that the Cataclysm healing changes have on the game, I go over how Tanking and DPS roles will be affected. Will avoidance make a comeback? How responsible are DPS for their survivability? These questions and more will be answered in this week's show!
Also, my wallpaper is amazing.
Games to Teach the Youth
2010-08-03 à 15:12
For most of my life I have been unhappy with the education that has been offered to me. Few countries know how to deal with gifted or troubled students, and only a few teachers are able to act properly when they find one. The bane of the genius and the idiot is to never be understood, they say. Well, I did a little thinking, some more talking, and finally decided to do some writing on the topic as well. Why do we often find education inadequate, and why are students growing increasingly uninterested in the classroom activities?
A simple answer would be something like "They are not interesting." Well, let's stick with this and try to figure out how to make learning more interesting. After all you can be the greatest teacher the world has ever known and will ever know, but if your students are not interested in the stuff you are talking about, almost all of your talent is wasted. We can look at neurobiology, or at religion, or at psychology, or at philosophy, and we would probably find some pretty good answers. However, I would like to offer you a drastically different approach to the problem - let's look at games.
New Cataclysm Beta Launcher (Soon!)
2010-08-03 à 04:17
Our favorite floating skull Zarhym just announced that a new launcher for the Cataclysm Beta is in the works. It should be available with the next beta patch, and will incorporate a few of the programs you already need to run during patching. Namely, those are the Launcher, the Updater, and the Downloader. It will also stream game data while you are in the game, playing. In other words, patching should happen much easier, and hopefully - faster. If the downloading process is slowing down your internet, or if the patching is eating your processor, you could always stop either one of those processes and let it finish after you are done playing.
Zarhym has posted a FAQ on the new launcher, you can read all about it after the break!

The Weekly Marmot - The Cataclysm Healing Game (Part 1)
2010-07-30 à 19:31
This week, in the first of a two-part series, I begin a discussion about the changes to the way health and healing works in Cataclysm. To start, I take a little trip down memory lane to how healing worked in The Burning Crusade, as well as WoW Classic.
Also, LOOK AT THE PUPPY.
