    Armory Scams, Blue posts, Free Character Moves

    Update - The Twitter Dev Chat is in progress, keep refreshing the Blue tracker for updates.

    Blue posters are fairly silent these days, at this point I can say that the upcoming minor content patch will not be deployed next week, but will be deployed on January 26th.

    I also want to point out that there isn't a lot of Season 8 information to datamine, a lot of people sent me messages to ask for a preview of the season 8 gear but ... it's just not in the game files for the moment. This is also why the patch can't be deployed later than January 26th, the files needed to start the arena season are here, hopefully Blizzard will be nice enough to post a preview of the Season 8 armor sets.

    Important - Armory Scams
    The new version of the armory is now available on both US and EU armory and a lot of people lost their account because of scammers exploiting the popularity of the armory. The scam is fairly simple, people buy advertising on Google to display ads pointing to fake armory sites when you search for the real one on google.


    NEVER, EVER, EVER, EVER use google to access the official site or the armory, just type http://www.wowarmory.com / http://eu.wowarmory.com in your browser and bookmark it if you're lazy and don't want to type it every time.

    The armory now requires you to login for a lot of the features introduced with the latest upgrade and you should make sure that you do not do anything stupid when you access it. I don't think you would use google to go to your Account Management page.

    If you think you might have been scammed by one of these pages, change your password immediately. If you do not think that you're concerned by this post, change your password immediately because it's always a good idea anyway.

    Just to reiterate for those expressing concerns about healing becoming too dominant if a buff to resilience goes live, we share this same concern. We do not want to drastically increase the length of fights or make them too healer dominant if damage is toned down. We've been saying this all along. (Source)

    We are still planning to add the strength ring in the next minor content patch. (Source)

    You will be able to choose to NOT use the zonewide buff for whatever that's worth to you. So it seems your battle pride may remain intact. (Source)

    We've selected the very best of these screenshots to offer each creator an Epic Edition Rise of the Lich King stein created by Taverncraft (http://wowsteins.com). We also congratulate our grand prize winner, James Hessler, who will receive the signed #1 of only 750 Legendary Edition Rise of the Lich King steins!

    as an additional remark, checking a toon shouldn't ask for your login, so if you have a login screen while browsing someone's profile, it's a fake site.

    Never, ever, login unless you double check the url.

    bliz's certificate expired in 2009, so no SSL atm. bah

    Can Heal, Tank, DPS, and go AFK like no other.

    So far i've only been able to find that scam site in the google.fr search.
    Most european googles and the Google.com does not have that site at all. Still its always good to be alert about passwords

    Thanks for the heads up.

    I just typed in "WoW EU Armory" and the scam site was at the very top.

    Scary stuff.

    It is the case since quite some time. The scammers simply buy google ad space. When the site is down, they open another and repeat.

    They should add a minor achievement for killing all bosses in ICC without the extra dmg, hp, heals etc.

    I read about this on our realmforums a few weeks ago, searched then and searched now, not getting the link...

    Also: "It is a searchable database of information for the wow... " made me smile.

    anyone got any idea what the Buff could be? i'm thinking if it's similar to the BC buff we got on Quel'danas and inside the Heroic/Raid there i would assume it would be Stamina increase i was thinking 100-120 stamina. and also a 10% damage and healing increase as well
    Unfortunately, until the people at Blizzard take time to quit explaining why they are right and anyone who disagrees is wrong, they are not going to even hear everyone speaking out desperately trying to warn them the ship is sinking.
    the problems driving players from WoW aren't content or the age of the game, the problem is how the game experience and design philosophy are being undermined by Blizzard's hubris and greed.

    It's likely going to have exactly the same hit/crit values as the current Agility ring to ensure that every plate DPS can make equal use of it.
    Also, STRENGTH RINGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG. <3

    Re: Armory Scams, Blue posts, Free Character Moves

    get FireFox, WOT, NoScript and especially Adblock+



    firefox blocks the fake armory site as scam site
    adblock removes the yellow advertise box with the link
    noscript blocks scripts on suspicious websites
    WOT warns you against allmost all suspicious websites, and there are a lot of sites firefox doesn't block from the start
    Time waits for no one.
    Aoccdrnig to rscheearch at Cmabrigde uinervtisy, it deosn't mttaer waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are, the olny iprmoetnt tihng is taht the frist and lsat ltteres are at the rghit pclae.
