The Ruby Sanctum Preview
[blizzquote author=Blizzard source=http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/index.xml]Wyrmrest Temple has been breached. The Ruby Sanctum
, hallowed domain of the red dragonflight in Northrend, is under siege.
Now, the mighty dragons must rely on the mortal races for salvation. The fate of the red flight, caretakers of all life on Azeroth, hangs in the balance. Stalwart champions, Horde and Alliance alike, will rush to the defense of the sanctum. Will you be among them?
Featured in the upcoming World of Warcraft patch 3.3.5., the Ruby Sanctum is the final Wrath of the Lich King dungeon and a precursor to the events of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm. Learn about it here

[blizzquote author=Blizzard source=http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/index.xml]You're called to action once again, to use your wits and strength, to compete for the ultimate prize. Your weapons? They seem to be but a musty tome and quill, but know that their power is far stronger than the armies of the Scourge, far craftier than the zerg Swarm, and far mightier than any demon from the Burning Hells. Ready your tools, scribe, and prepare for combat with the inky beast called fiction!
Enter a short story for the chance to win a free trip to Blizzard's headquarters in southern California! This contest is open to entrants from around the world and will be judged by Blizzard's very own writers and masters of lore. For more information, head to the contest page
