Mione - Solo Twin Val'kyr and Faction Champions
Mione had a busy week after the Solo kill of Yogg-Saron and decided to visit the Trial of the Crusader instance.

The Twin Val'kyrs are pretty fast to kill apparently but the Faction Champions are ... well ... longer ... much longer ... in fact, it took almost 2 hours to kill them. Congratulations to Mione, and good luck for the solo kill of the Lich King.

Karazhan Map in Patch 4.1
Patch 4.1 updated most of the TBC dungeon with new world maps but so far the dungeons with a lot of floors (Black Temple/Karazhan) were missing. The latest PTR build added Karazhan maps and you can now check out how the 17 floors look from above.

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 finally showing up, faster and more expensive than the current generation. Currently they are overpriced because they are new, look for price reductions over the next few weeks. New AMD CPUs are unlikely to surface before June or July.

Make sure to keep your AMD and Nvidia drivers up to date.

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!

    Can Rogues solo cool things yet? I haven't played since WOTLK, but I'm guessing no.

    I am seriously disapointed in seeing any razer products featured anywhere. It just shows that you don't really know what you're talking about.

    Whats with the music in the twin valk vid?

    This is why Kara is one of the greatest raids ever. 17 floors of amazingness.

    Epic raids like Kara/Ulduar/BT/SWP made this game great.

    I was not expecting anyone to solo Twin Valkyrs or Faction Champions.

    Finally maps for Kara, I still get lost in that damn place.

    Daily Blink: 1
    Blizzard Art Design: 0

    As always Daily Blink is full of win.
    I nearly fell off my chair when I saw this & the 'I Am Number Four' parody.

    Why does chaud put 8Gb of DDR3 with i7? Do you need DDR3 to work ad DDR2? All i7 and good motherboards (3+ memory slots) must have x3 memory modules.

    why are the computer's named puppy, dolphin, narwhal, and unicorn? it seems pointless to name them anything at all much less the weird girly names....

    Razer does make some quality mice and keyboards.

    Am I wrong, or can I not remember any other shoulders larger than the hunter T1?
