WoW players get instant restoration of lost items

WoW players get instant restoration of lost items

Usually when preparing for a raid in World of Warcraft, I'd disenchant a bunch of items to get enchants ready for any new gear I won. Every once in a while, I'd get sidetracked and come back to DE a vital piece of epic gear instead of the trash I had intended. Panic usually ensued.

Diablo 3 TV commercial reintroduces the Lord of Terror

Diablo 3 TV commercial reintroduces the Lord of Terror

If you are prone to nightmares, I suggest you do not watch this video. Hellspawn, glowing eyes, massive monsters towering over a cowering woman, and all that is good and holy trying mightily to keep the hordes at bay. It's not pretty, but it is entrancing.

Blizzard released a new Diablo III TV commercial announcing the impending return of the Lord of Terror to PC on May 15. The latest cinematic offers never before seen imagery from the game and should have gamers salivating even more over the thought of battling the inbound beasties.

Fans choose new WoW Monopoly pieces

There are plenty of iconic images from the World of Warcraft game and lore. I can come up with at least 25 off the top of my head. So when it came time for Blizzard to choose which icons would be best suited as playing pieces for the upcoming Monopoly World of Warcraft board game, they narrowed it down to 10 and then asked the players to narrow it down to six.

Two new faction specific mounts have been unveiled: the Spectral Gryphon for Alliance characters and the Spectral Wind Rider for Horde characters.

WoW dev analyzes Cataclysm's dungeons and raids

WoW dev analyzes Cataclysm's dungeons and raids

Gamers are always happy to throw their two cents around to anyone who will listen when it comes to their favorite games. World of Warcraft has those types of gamers in spades and while a few bring up solid points, most of the criticism becomes white noise.

But when a developer of the game takes a critical look at his game, people take notice. Blizzard used its WoW blog on Battle.net to chat with Scott "Daelo" Mercer, WoW's lead encounter designer, about the dungeons and raids in Cataclysm. The interview offered some quality tidbits about some of the most interesting encounters in the game.
