MMO-Champion T-Shirts now available from J!NX
Curse and J!NX have teamed up to bring you what some people have been requestiong for a while: MMO-Champion T-Shirts!
The T-shirt is available in a basic tee, which has a boxy fit and is available in more sizes. We are also offering a premium shirt, which is made of softer cotton and has a slimmer fit. More designs/colors might be available in the future depending on the success of the operation.
I would also like to mention that it is scientifically proven that people wearing MMO-Champion T-Shirts are 137% more likely to end up in awkward pictures on the front page if they wear them during the Blizzcon.
Patch 4.3 - Chromatic Dragon Pet
A "ChromaticDragonPet" model was added to the PTR with the latest build, it looks pretty cool for the moment but it might be a work in progress. It's also incredibly big for a companion pet, I'm not sure if it's because the model was just implemented or if it's intended, wait & see!

Raid Finder Loot Rules Update
Short version: When using Raid Finder for the Dragon Soul raid instance, players whose currently assigned class role (Tank, Healer, or Damage) matches the class role that a piece of armor or a weapon is flagged for will receive +100 to their Need roll.

In response to concerns regarding how loot will be distributed in the Raid Finder system, we are making some changes to how loot rolls will work when using the Need Before Greed system in the Raid Finder. When using Raid Finder for the Dragon Soul raid instance, players whose currently assigned class role (Tank, Healer, or Damage) matches the class role that a piece of armor or a weapon is flagged for will receive +100 to their Need roll. For purposes of this check, your currently assigned role is defined as the class role you have assigned when a boss is defeated. Sound confusing? I hope not, but here's how it'll work:
A boss dies and drops EPIC TANKING ITEM.
A mage in the group yawns and clicks the "Greed" button, getting a 98.
A Fury warrior in the group wants to take up tanking, so he rolls "Need" and gets a solid 64.
Both tanks want the item. Tank 1 rolls a 12, and Tank 2 rolls a 7.
So what happens?
Because the mage rolled greed, she's right out from the start. The Fury warrior's Need roll was higher than the tanks', but he was in the Damage Dealer role when the boss died, and the item is flagged for tanking, so his 64 is still just a 64 out of a possible 100. In contrast, Tank 1 and Tank 2 each get a 100 point bonus to their rolls because they were in the Tanking role when the boss died and they’re rolling on an item that has been flagged for the tanking role. That means that Tank 1 rolled a 112 out of 200, and tank 2 rolled a 107 out of 200. Tank 1 wins the item! If a roll got a bonus, that bonus will be clearly displayed in the chat log.
Please keep in mind that, at least for now, this system will only look at class role, and not player spec. This bonus isn't only for tanking items either – it applies to Tanking, Damage Dealing, and Healing items, and some items are flagged for more than one class role too. Starting out, only Dragon Soul raid items will be flagged for class roles in this way (though all of the items in the raid will be flagged for one or more roles). As you might expect, all the normal Need Before Greed rules are still in place, so that means that these roll bonuses won't overrule normal class and usability restrictions. Item tooltips in the raid won't reflect which class roles will get rolling bonuses, but it should be fairly obvious based on stat allocations and item type.
We are considering expanding this system to apply to the new 4.3 dungeons as well, though it is unlikely that we'll see the system apply to older dungeons or raids for now. Also, please keep in mind that this system is newly minted, and it may see further changes before it's released with the Raid Finder in patch 4.3.
Adventurers will be tested like never before in 4.3 as they take on Deathwing and his minions, emerging with powerful new treasures. Please enjoy this preview of the hunter tier 13 set, as well as a visual guide to tiers 1 through 12 for Transmogrification purposes.
Hunter – Wyrmstalker Battlegear
We like to tie a Hunter’s Tier armour in with an appropriate donor creature – it suggests the Hunter has actually hunted for the set! As there’s an awful lot of dragons in this patch, a draconic theme was the way to go. We wanted to reference but not simply reproduce the classic Dragonstalker set. To that end, we limited the use of dragon heads to the helm and chained leathery wings around the shoulders which gives the impression of a skeletal dragon crouching over the Hunter’s upper body.
Hunter Tier 1-12

VO_ET_MUROZOND_AGGRO_01 - So be it.
VO_ET_MUROZOND_DEATH_01 - You know not what you have done! Aman'thul.. what I have seen..
VO_ET_MUROZOND_EVENT_01 - The powers of the hourglass do nothing to me!
VO_ET_MUROZOND_EVENT_02 - To repeat the same action.. and expect different results is MADNESS.
VO_ET_MUROZOND_EVENT_03 - Another chance will make no difference. You will fail.
VO_ET_MUROZOND_EVENT_04 - Again?! Is this your plot? Your scheme?!
VO_ET_MUROZOND_EVENT_05 - The hourglass's power is exhausted. No more games, mortals! Relent or perish.

VO_ET_MUROZOND_INTRO_02 - You crawl unwitting, like a blind writhing worm towards endless madness and despair. I have witnessed the true End Time. This? This is a blessing you simply cannot comprehend.

VO_DS_NOZDORMU_DWBATTLE_04 - Hurry, heroes! In mere moments, Deathwing's cataclysm will complete what he has begun.. and end the world!
VO_DS_NOZDORMU_DWVICTORY_01 - Although you may want to hurry...
VO_DS_NOZDORMU_IRIS_01 - Not entirely unexpected..
VO_DS_NOZDORMU_ULTRAXION_01 - The cycle of time brings and end to all things!
VO_ET_NOZDORMU_EVENT_01 - Mortals.. I can not follow you any further. Accept my blessing and use the hourglass of time to defeat Murozond.
VO_ET_NOZDORMU_EVENT_02 - At last it has come to pass! The moment of my demise. The loop.. is closed. My future self will cause no more harm.
VO_ET_NOZDORMU_EVENT_03 - Still.. in time. I will fall to madness. And you heroes.. will vanquish me. The cycle will repeat.. so it goes.
VO_ET_NOZDORMU_EVENT_04 - What matters is that Azeroth did not fall! That we survive to fight.. another day!
VO_ET_NOZDORMU_EVENT_05 - All that matters.. is this moment!
VO_ET_NOZDORMU_INTRO_01 - There is an unnatural darkness to this place. A perpetual midnight.. take caution heroes, and do not stray from the light.
VO_ET_NOZDORMU_INTRO_02 - The undying flames are all that remain of this sacred place.. I sense much anger here. A seething rage barely held in check. Be on your guard!
VO_ET_NOZDORMU_INTRO_03 - And this is all that is left of the blue dragonshrine.. a great battle shattered the timewaves leading out of this forsaken place! You must reconstruct the fragments scattered across the ground and defeat the trapped spirit to proceed.
VO_ET_NOZDORMU_INTRO_06 - This is where she stood, heroes. And this is where she fell. The time-lost echo of Sylvanas Windrunner will reverberate through the rotting limbs of the dragonshrine for all eternity.
VO_ET_NOZDORMU_INTRO_07 - You must give peace to these lands if you are to face Murozond.
VO_NOZDORMU_GREETING01 - In time, all things are possible.
VO_NOZDORMU_GREETING02 - All that matters, is this moment.
VO_NOZDORMU_GREETING03 - Time is a tangled web.. try not to dwell on all the loose ends.
VO_NOZDORMU_GREETING04 - Do not confine yourself.. to linear thinking!
VO_NOZDORMU_GREETING05 - I can arrange for your parents not to meet!
VO_WOE_NOZDORMU_EVENT_01 - The Dragon Soul is safe once again! Quickly.. into the time portal before this world sunders!
VO_WOE_NOZDORMU_INTRO_01 - I see you've arrived. This is the eve of the sundering.. when the collapse of the Well of Eternity fractured the continents of the world.
VO_WOE_NOZDORMU_INTRO_02 - Here we will snatch up the Dragon Soul before it lost to the mists of time!
VO_WOE_NOZDORMU_INTRO_03 - But first, you must bring down the protective wards of Azshara's highborn lackeys.. you will find them within the palace. I will scout on ahead.
Patch 4.3: Tier 13 Set Bonus Update
Last night's PTR build changed a couple of Tier 13 Set Bonuses, it seems that they're more recent than the latest update of the official preview but you might want to wait for an official confirmation just in case! For a complete list of the T13 Set Bonuses, check out the official preview:
Feral, 2P -- Pulverize now also grants your Mangle (Bear) critical strikes a 100% chance to trigger Savage Defense, and your Blood in the Water talent now causes Ferocious Bite to refresh the duration of your Rip on targets with 60% or less health.
Feral, 4P -- Frenzied Regeneration also affects all raid and party members. This effect cannot be triggered if you have been in Bear Form for less than 15 sec. In addition, using Tiger's Fury will cause your next Ravage to cost no energy, not require stealth, and have no positioning requirement for 10 sec.
2P -- Steady Shot and Cobra Shot generate double the amount of focus.
4P -- Your Arcane Shot ability has a chance to grant 30% haste to you and your pet for 15 sec.
2P -- Your Arcane Blast has a 100% chance and your Fireball, Frostfire Bolt, and Frostbolt spells have a 50% chance to grant Stolen Time, increasing your haste rating by 50 for 30 sec and stacking up to 10 times. When Arcane Power, Combustion, or Icy Veins expires, all stacks of Stolen Time are lost.
4P -- Each stack of Stolen Time also reduces the cooldown of Arcane Power by 7 sec, Combustion by 3 sec, and Icy Veins by 6 sec.
Healer, 2P -- After using Power Infusion or Divine Hymn, the mana cost of your healing spells is reduced by 25% for [10|23] sec. (10 sec for Discipline, 23 for non-Discipline.)

Protection, 4P -- Your Shield Wall ability now grants 50% of its effect to all party and raid members.
Patch 4.3 - Professions Epic Items
Patch 4.3 crafted epic items have been updated in last night's build, they now seem to have better stats and gained sockets!

Unlock - 100g Deposit - 25g Withdrawal - Free
We agree with the suggestions we've seen that placing a higher fee on withdrawals would create a stronger deterrent for using Void Storage as a secondary bank. That said, we don't want players to find themselves in a situation where they are unable to retrieve an item simply because they don't have the gold. This is why we're leaning towards a more expensive deposit (to differentiate Void Storage from a normal bank) and allowing all withdrawals to be free. Please keep in mind that these prices may not hit the PTR and are, of course, subject to change before the release of 4.3.

Rather than potentially having my statements in this thread come back to bite me at some point in the future, I'm going to risk being confusing or sounding dumb.
In short, they agree that the process of mailing heirlooms around constantly is a little annoying. We'd prefer to try and work ourselves away from the method of mailing out BoA items in the future, like pets, mounts, etc. To that end, we have some design goals in mind that would improve this sort of item distribution system. And with those design goals have come some ideas for changing heirloom mechanics. This is sort of contrary to the idea I stated in this thread about just designing the system to allow players to mail their heirlooms all around their accounts without realm restrictions.
That's all of the information I can share at the moment, but I feel like it's worth pointing out that the design philosophy I stated earlier isn't so set in stone -- we're reevaluating these types of systems as we look toward the future. I apologize if I've caused any confusion. (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
