Prepare to Die Azeroth

You read that right.  Your little lives mean nothing in the grand scheme of things.  At least that is what the devs for World of Warcraft are telling us in their most recent announcement.  It appears one of the events that is being planned for the introduction to Cataclysm is Deathwing appearing in random zones and murdering the inhabitants.  What will happen is the skies will turn dark and Deathwing will begin to burn everything in his path.  Players that are in the way of his carnage will be rewarded with three things.  They will get a Feat of Strength achievement, a corpse run and a repair bill.

So watch out when the sky turns black and prepare to die.


WoW Geeks Rejoice!

ZOMG! It's a happy cupcake!?!?!After multiple rumors swirling around about Blizzard's new World of Warcraft expansion, Cataclysm, being released, Blizzard decided to put those rumors to bed.  Blizzard has officially announced that Cataclysm will in fact be released December 7, 2010.  Check out the official blue post here.  Only two months to go before the intertubes are bombarded from returning WoW players.  May these next two months fly by like it has only been two minutes.

Cataclysm Coming In December???

Yes Please.World of Warcraft,  my drug of choice.  Recently, I haven't been needing my fix, in fact,  my subscription has been frozen for the past few months.  But, with the new patch on the horizon (Patch 4.0.1) I decided to get back into it.  Good thing too.  With all the changes that will be happening in the upcoming patch, I figured it would be good to get reacquainted with all my toons before the expansion hits. 

A lot of rumors have been swirling when exactly Cataclysm will be released.  While there has been no "official" date, the fine peeps and MMO-Champion may have discovered the release date.  In an earlier blue post from WoW, Zarhym noted that "The next Arena Season will begin for level-85 players approximately one week after the official launch of World of Warcraft: Cataclysm."  It has recently been posted that Arena Season 9 will kick off on December 14, 2010.  So, according to the blue post from Zahym, the logical release date for Cataclysm will be on December 7, 2010.  Check out the full article and the entire blue post of Zahym at MMO-Champion's web site here.

If you're like me, you cannot wait for the expansion hit store shelves.  At least patch 4.0.1 will give me enough new changes to hopefully tide me over until Cataclysm is released.  Stay tuned for any new updates on Cataclysm.
