    Patch 4.0.1a on live servers this week
    A new bugfix patch appeared on Blizzard servers and it looks like this week's maintenance will be used to upgrade the live realms to Build 13205, most likely to fix the major bugs in the current version of the game.

    We are updating World of Warcraft with a minor bug fix patch. For updated information regarding the changes made in this patch, please visit the official General forum at:

    Ex-WoWWiki Admins Join Curse to Create Wowpedia
    You probably saw a couple of forum posts about it, most of the team behind WoWWiki left the website and created a new site: On a personal level, I'm glad that the team decided to pick Curse for this new project and I'm sure we have a great opportunity to build something really nice with that new site.

    We're extremely excited to announce that the administrators and contributors previously from WoWWiki have now joined the Curse family of websites and have created a new wiki for World of Warcraft,

    This free-to-use, community-driven wiki is the latest in our efforts to provide World of Warcraft players with premiere content and resources to help make your experiences better both in and out of the game.

    Wowpedia is already booming, but it will need the help of the community to continue to thrive. Head over and make it the best wiki for World of Warcraft!

    A few of the stats for Wowpedia, so far:

    • More than 218,000 pages have been created, with over 84,000 content pages
    • Over 72,000 users have registered to contribute to the wiki and its community
    • 15 administrators, all focused on building the premiere information resource for World of Warcraft
    • 330,000 visits since Wowpedia went live last week

    We're also pleased to announce that for the next two months, Wowpedia will operate completely ad-free. And while we'll need to have advertising on the website eventually to cover hosting fees, those ads will never be obtrusive or affect the flow of content on a page.

    As always, it's our goal here at Curse to provide gamers with the best possible tools, and the Wowpedia team is a great addition to the family.

    Cho'gall 25 Multi-PoV and Nefarian/Onyxia Sneak Peek Videos
    Paragon released another video of Cho'gall 25, this one has multiple point of views and might give you a few more details on the fight! Also, the french guild Millenium managed to activate the first part of the Onyxia/Nefarian encounter in Blackwing Descent. Currently, you cannot finish the fight and Onyxia will be stuck at 1 HP.

    The Sunken Temple in Cataclysm
    If you watched/attended Blizzcon you probably heard that the size of the Sunken Temple/Temple of Atal'hakkar is greatly reduced now that the top portion of the instance is gone. Basically the only thing left is a quest NPC at the entrance, some trash, and 4 easily accessable bosses, more than enough to make your rerolls very happy to run the instance!

Most of them are actually now impossible to complete, and this feat will join a long list of "you had to be there" moments in WoW time.

    The feat isn't being removed of course, those who have it will retain it, however; some of the requirements are, so it will no longer be able to be completed by anyone who has not already done so.

    It's possible that in some very specific situations where someone has completed the reputations which are being removed, but not others that will still be in the game, that it can still be completed. But it's something we're waiting for clarity on, and will let you know as soon as we do. (Source)

    Except without annoying ads EVERYWHERE.

    WoWWiki's ads were so bad they'd be in the middle of the content, screwing up the page layout.

    Insane in the Membrane will be the hot rage topic now. And prices are going to skyrocket up.

    The new site is WoWWiki, in the sense that the entire community left Wikia. But they wouldn't give the domain name up. That's the only reason for the name change.

    Oh that makes sense.

    I wish I was that paladin healer using double solace... (or he's just using 2 trinkets with the same buff image).

    For those wandering, my understanding of why it moved is because of wikia itself. Apparently its gone bad with its new layouts and the ads were terrible on the website. Could be more, who knows.

    You know, I don't think I would ever want to put something called "Membrane of C'Thun" on my head.

  14. #14
    I don't really get the point of this, having a look at a couple of pages, it just seems to be a 1-1 copy of wowwiki, whats the point in 2 sites with the same stuff on it...

    Hm... Back on the PTR of 4.0.1, there was a pretty big pre-Cata event questline. When is Blizzard going to implement that? Because I would like to see it again on Live.

    I'm hoping tonight with the patch Lihonessa, theres only 5 weeks to launch so they need to get started soon

    Am I the only slightly annoyed that there are no new patch notes for what's being fixed and/or changed? And yeah, I hated the new layout for WoWWiki, so hopefully the new one will be better.

    Which is why Wikia forced the skin change on wowiki. It was a great change but the wowwiki crew whined about it and left. If you think Curse won't have adds throughout wowpedia after two months, you're delusional.

    Anyone know the music from the Nefarian vid?
