Rumors and Scuttlebutt

Patch 2.4 Is Coming, Eventually

The Public Test Realm is back up and running today, after being unavailable for several days. This, in addition to rampant background downloader activity this week, has led to speculation that patch 2.4 will be coming on Tuesday, March 25th here in the States. So what are we looking forward to in patch 2.4? Check out the Fury Of The Sunwell trailer.

Drysc Whets Our Appetite For Season 4

In a post on the WoW forums yesterday, Blizzard CM Drysc cut to the chase about the forthcoming 4th season of Arena PvP: “There will be no changes to gear availability/rating requirement until Season 4 starts, which will not begin when patch 2.4 goes live. When Season 4 starts here’s what will happen:
* Season 1 removed
* Season 2 moved to honor
* Season 3 rating requirements and prices lowered
o Shoulders: 1950 rating
o Weapon: 1800 rating
* Season 4 gear added
Season 4 isn’t expected to begin any time soon, but as always we plan to give at least a two week notice before it does. Season 3 prices and Season 4 rating requirements are not yet announced.

Series 3 WoW Action Figures Incoming

According to Jay at Toy News International, DC unlimited has promised to release series three of the highly-sought World Of Warcraft Action figures later this year, and we’ve got pictures! What do you think of the male Blood Elf, female Dranei, female human and male undead rogue?

Are playing on private servers illegal? I understand that they are against the T.O.A. but are they against the LAW?

Drop Of The Week

MMOvie, Installment #1

It’s 10 and a half minutes of pure MMO parody, with a lot of WoW and a lot of potential. MMOvie is a machinima, of course, and it doesn’t really break new ground – video game players probably recorded their exploits in Pitfall 2600 on VHS and then dubbed in dialogue from Raiders Of The Lost Ark. But you can’t deny that MMOvie has MMOxie. It’s extremely well-produced – a cut above most all machinima.

And We Give Away That Scott Johnson Sketch!

  1. Another awesome show! It was fantastic that you were able to gather so many of our favorite guest stars in one episode.

    Congrats on #100! I’m already looking forward to #101 and beyond. :)

  2. Gratz again! I hate you guys… I reactivated my WOW account on Earthen Ring over the weekend. I am playing a BE/Rogue called Vermithrax. Fricking Blizzard and their damn digital crack.

  3. On the question as to which is one’s fav map: Hands down, it is Ungoro Crater. I love the atmosphere and the quests (especially the Linken quests which are some of the best in the game I’ve played).

  4. Awesome! Thanks for the 100 And the add-on of Veronica Belmont was great to hear her on the podcast.
