Diablo 3 - Teleport Runed, Beta Contest, Site Updates, Bashiok's Post, and Curse Weekly Round Up

Update - Managed to grab a screenshot of the new Feldrake.

Patch 4.3.2 on Test Realms
A new Patch 4.3.2 is being deployed on test realms as we speak, this is a "minor bug fix patch." according to the official notes but we do not have more details for the moment.

World of Warcraft Optimization
The launcher now optimizes your game folder and tries to improve game performance/reduce the size of the install on your hard drive.

64 Bit Game Client
The 64 bit client might appear in this patch, the current test build is tagged as "test x86", which implies that a 64 bit version is available somewhere.

Client Strings Changes

    Do you know what the PTR is for? Testing things. Do you know why you test things? Because they might contain bugs. Well done, you've found one. Instead of passive-aggressively spouting "hurr GG Billzard", you could report it. Alternatively, use it as evidence that Blizzard is contributing to the downfall of mankind.

    This is just a tooltip fix, it has been nerfed a while ago.

    Serious question.
    What is the point of running 64-bit client on WoW?
    What added features or bonuses does that give me.

    Im running an AMD Phenom x4 945, 4 gigs ram and a 460 gtx.

    Does it allow 1 more gig of ram to be use? More cores? Just curious.

    The Feldrake looks pretty cool, in my opinion. It's definitely suited for warlock players for obvious reasons, so I certainly intend to try and get one. I just hope it isn't ridiculously hard to acquire, though I have a feeling we might be seeing something from the Burning Legion in the next mini patch. I hope it's not a store mount...

    Star Wars is out and Blizzard puts this in.They're like the building sailing ships in the age of cruise missiles and aircraft carriers.

    Dammit, I need that mount now.

    Get ready for the return of the Burning Legion... Look at that symbol on top of the Drake's Head.

    Feldrake = Darkmoon faire new mount!

    I'm hoping the legion has something to do with the mount, as in preparing us for MoP in the next patch!

    Dear Everyone:

    Did you honestly expect a drake mount to not use the drake model already in the game? Please, don't bother with the whole "REUSED MODEL OMG AWFUL" stuff. Just accept that it's a pretty neat looking drake and move on with your lives.

    old drake model again, comeon lazy blizzard. we have seen this mount like hundred times, this one look like black drake except it has green spots instead of orange/red.

    Cool I guess. Assume the two Legion themed cosmetics will be TCG; Feldrake's kind of cool, would've been nice to see a Fel Corrupted Netherdrake model though.
