Sunwell items recolors
I think it's not a big surprise if I say that the 2.4 Patch introduced a lot of new item models in the game, most of them aren't used more than once but there is actually tons of different skins available for all the weapons added in each patch. Patch 2.4 items aren't an exception and Blizzard added a few color variations for each weapons added to the game, you probably won't see most of them in game, recolors are mostly here for :
- New items using old models (Arena weapons, or just loot from future dungeons/encounters)
- Weapons used by NPCs and recolored to fit their style.
- Nothing, 90% of the recolors are here "just in case", you'll never see them in game but they still look nice.
Thanks a lot to endarion for all his work on the screenshots.
Darkmoon faire hotfix
There was a "bug" with the Darkmoon Faire this month and it spawned one week early. According to the calendar on the official site, it should have been this week but it seems that
[blizzquote="Kisirani;http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=5103878682&postId=52356038068&sid=1#12]I apologize greatly for the miscommunication between my team and the web team who maintains the event calendar. The March Darkmoon Faire was listed a week later than it actually occurred.[/blizzquote"]
However, after a very long talk on the official forums, Blizzard decided to hotfix it and the Darkmoon faire will be active for one more week, starting after the next maintenance.
It's been a while since the last time we heard anything about Uldum, but Drysc decided to post a little something about it.

No more changes to socket bonuses in the future
[blizzquote="Hortus;http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=4665488769&postId=52352744252&sid=1#172]I didn't say we can't change socket bonuses, clearly we have in the past, and when we did it caused problems that required hotfixes. These problems may not have affected you personally but they did affect many players. We will not be making changes to socket bonuses in the future to avoid these problems. That is the end of discussion on this topic.[/blizzquote"]
Sometimes wearing a tabard over a robe will only show the top half of the tabard, it's a known issue but sadly it can't really be fixed and you'll have to live with it.
[blizzquote="Drysc;http://forums.worldofwarcraft.com/thread.html?topicId=5103879525&postId=52356046637&sid=1#1]t's been a while since this was asked of the designers/artists but if I remember correctly the reasoning given at the time was that it was not a bug or oversight, but a decision based on technical limitations. The way our armor and animation systems work, of which I will not pretend I have any knowledge of, would make it extremely difficult and labor intensive to have the tabards show properly over the robes and actually look right/good. Something like having to change the entire system as well as remodel every piece or robe armor or some-such, I can't recall the details. So anyway, the decision was made to just hide the bottom portion.[/blizzquote"]
