    Druid Fire Cat Form, Avengers of Hyjal / Valor Points Rewards, Setup of the Month

    Druid Fire Cat Form - Fandral's Flamescythe
    The premade druids on PTRs are now equipped with Fandral's Flamescythe (Majordomo Staghelm Loot - Firelands Raid) and players had a chance to test a very interesting feature of this weapon: the druid automatically changes into a fire cat when in combat!





    Patch 4.2 - Updated Valor Points Rewards
    Valor Points rewarded were updated in the latest build of Patch 4.2, names have been moved around, item models have changed, and most importantly a couple of stats were changed. Among other things, Relic items now have a Prismatic gem slot instead of a Red one.

    See the updated list below, now with item screenshots.

    Computers - Setup of the Month (by chaud)
    Each month or every 2 months, depending on the hardware evolutions, the lovely chaud will work on a couple of hardware setups for those of you who are thinking of upgrading their computer!

    This month
    New SSDs are here, faster and more expensive than the current generation. Look for small price drops over the next few months as the last gen is put on sale. New AMD CPUs will be here in August or later, performance is still unknown.

    Make sure to keep your AMD and Nvidia drivers up to date. If you experience problems after updating, roll back to the recommended Nvidia Drivers.

    New to building your own computer? ArsTechnica recently released a nice guide for new builders (Part 2 and Part 3). They don't talk about it specifically, but Artic Silver 5 is standard for thermal compound, avoid using what came with your heatsink. Usually it is easier to connect the case headers when the motherboard is not in the case, provided the wires are long enough. She does mention a five hour build time, two hours seems more likely.

    Don't hesitate to post any feedback in the comments of that news post, and don't forget to visit the Computer Forum for any extra questions!

    My druid is a rarely-played alt, unfortunately. I'm gonna have to get him that staff though, no matter how long it takes.

    only while in combat means no 'AFK' showing off infront of the AH.. whats the point
    Nice to see a weapon i'll keep in my bags for expansions to follow.
