    Alythess Kill, Blue posts, Live raid

    Twin Eredars ... Hard mode ?
    Vodka killed the Twin Eredars ! Even if it doesnt sound new, they managed to get rid of Sacrolash before killing Grand Warlock Alythess and the result was surprising ... One extra epic loot and 4 Sunmotes ! It looks like Blizzard wanted to be nice with people completing the encounter the hard way.


    Reminder : You can find Sunwell Plateau bosses loot table in this post

    Generally speaking the mechanics and actions of a fight against an NPC is pretty different compared to PvP fighting. The skirmish Arena modes are available for you to get practice in and get used to all of the options your character has available. That said we will consider this for the future but I can't make any guarantees on it. (Source)

    10-Man dungeons in WotLK
    We do plan to continue making 10 person raid dungeons, we just aren't quite ready to share information on dungeons that will use this raid size. (Source)

    Armor sets in WotLK
    I will say that the armor sets in Wrath of the Lich King are looking awesome. People will always differ in opinions on what "looks cool" but there were many awesome designs in The Burning Crusade and the original World of Warcraft and we plan to continue developing as many new and exciting sets as we possibly can.

    What is the point of green versus gold in Arenas ?
    We universally use blue to define the Alliance and red for the Horde on banners and such across the game. Using green and gold allows us to assign them to either faction while still having colors that are distinct enough that you won't get them mixed up. (Source)

    Balance of Arena Team Compositions
    I wouldn't say that this makes it unbalanced. You are free to create a character of any kind so if you feel a different group synergy will work better it will only take you a few minutes to setup. Players are always looking to maximize their usefulness in some way so there will always end up as some class/spec that is the most popular. Expecting a straight even balance across the board is a little unrealistic but we will continually look to balancing things to provide players with the most options possible. (Source)

    Oceanic Free Character Moves & New Realm

    The destination for this round of transfers is to a new Oceanic PvP realm, Dreadmaul, to provide additional options and growth for the Oceanic community.

    In the event that any of these realms meets our transfer goals before the scheduled end date, the transfers pertaining to that realm will be disabled. We highly recommend that if you are planning to transfer that you do so at your earliest convenience. No characters will be eligible for these free moves once the transfers have been closed.

    Once the transfers open you can begin your transfer by visiting the Character Move page located here: https://www.worldofwarcraft.com/account/character-move.html

    The realms chosen consist of source realms with the highest sustained queues, and destination realms with the lowest population. The numbers gathered are directly from our data, and depict the realms in most need of these transfers. We will be continuing to monitor all realms and open additional free transfers in the future where necessary.

    Source B (PvP)
    Barthilas
    Frostmourne
    Jubei'Thos
    Thaurissan

    Destination B (PvP)
    Dreadmaul*

    *Dreadmaul is a new Oceanic PvP realm that will be in the Bloodlust Battlegroup. Character creation for this realm will be turned off for the duration of the transfers. The Ahn’Qiraj gates will already be open too.

    Twenty-Two All-New Warcraft® and StarCraft® Manga Volumes Slated for Release through 2010
    New York Comic-Con, New York (April 17, 2008) ― On the heels of the critically acclaimed international hit manga series Warcraft®: The Sunwell Trilogy, TOKYOPOP, the leader of the global manga revolution, and Blizzard Entertainment®, creator of some of the world's most popular game series, are proud to announce their three-year publishing plan. Over the next 36 months, the companies intend to release twenty-two all-new never-before-told adventures set in the richly detailed Warcraft and StarCraft® universes.

    According to TOKYOPOP Editor-in-Chief Rob Tokar, "After several fantastic years of working with Blizzard Entertainment on Warcraft: The Sunwell Trilogy, it is both a pleasure and an honor to extend our relationship in such a grand fashion. The entire TOKYOPOP team is incredibly excited to help expand the Warcraft and StarCraft universes through manga. Blizzard has been a terrific partner and, by incorporating original characters from Warcraft: The Sunwell Trilogy into their incredible massively multiplayer online role-playing game, World of Warcraft®, they have again shown that their game universe is a vast, rich, immersive phenomenon that transcends any one medium."

    "We're pleased to continue working with TOKYOPOP to bring our game universes to an entirely new audience," said Paul Sams, chief operating officer of Blizzard Entertainment. "Warcraft: The Sunwell Trilogy proved to be a top-quality adaptation of Warcraft to the manga format, and we look forward to matching that quality with the upcoming StarCraft and Warcraft books."

    In celebration of the 10th anniversary of Blizzard Entertainment's bestselling StarCraft real-time strategy game, this August TOKYOPOP will publish the first volume of the new manga series, StarCraft: Frontline, a collection of four stories set in the dark and gritty StarCraft universe. StarCraft: Frontline includes "Thundergod," by renowned writer Richard A. Knaak (Warcraft: The Sunwell Trilogy) and Naohiro Washio, and focuses on the new Thor heavy combat walker unit that will be appearing in Blizzard Entertainment's upcoming sequel, StarCraft II. Other artists and writers featured in this collection include Simon Furman (Transformers), Paul Benjamin (Pantheon High), Joshua Elder (Mail Order Ninja), and Ramanda Kamarga (Psy-Comm).

    August also hails the debut of the first volume of the all-new manga series Warcraft: Legends. Some of the world's best manga creators join together to bring the world of Warcraft to life as never before! Warcraft vets Richard A. Knaak and Jae-Hwan Kim (Warcraft: The Sunwell Trilogy) team up again for "Fallen," which is the first of a three-part tale. Other global talent for Warcraft: Legends includes Dan Jolley (Warriors; JSA Liberty Files), Carlos Oliveros and Mi-Young No (Threads of Time).

    StarCraft: Frontline and Warcraft: Legends are the first two of more than twenty releases set in the StarCraft and Warcraft universes that TOKYOPOP and Blizzard Entertainment will collaborate on and publish over the course of three years. Stay tuned for more details about other books in this historic publishing program.

    Eavesdrop - the player - target thing next to omen

    also, can it be confirmed if killing them this way does give more loot?
    Lag - Network related. High server response time, stop downloading.
    Low FPS - Your computer can't keep up with the game - buy a better one

    Dalaran doesn't lag (often) your pc just sucks.

    from right to left.

    Swstats (the dps meter that shows hunters owning)

    Eavesdrop (shows recent damage and heals in an easy to read format ( i use it))

    Omen2 ( the threat meter that is blank as he is not in combat, name TPS threat %)

    Bartender3 or some other bar mod possibly with cycircled skins

    Fubar is below it ( durability as a %, money, the time and so on)

    The minimap, possibly Squeenix or Chinchilla or simpleMinimap

    some more buttons next to that ( leads me to believe it is bartender3 because you can customise bars a lot with that. )

    Prat or Chatmod ( shows player names in class-colour )

    The black thing is prolly eepanels2 or kgPanels

    im guessing he has a pretty wide screen monitor to fit that in.

    should be enough info now.


    Edit: spellong r gud
