The Black Dragonflight. The mere mention of its name is enough to strike fear in the hearts of even the bravest adventurers. The cunning black dragon and undisputed ruler of his flight, Nefarian, has begun to unfold the final stages of his sinister plan to lead his army to supremacy over all the races of Azeroth. Now, watch a courageous band of heroes challenge Nefarian in his own sanctum at the very height of Blackrock Spire in this latest gameplay trailer of Blackwing Lair!
Wow that sounds pretty sinister doesn't it? It leaves this level 27 n00b Troll shaking. You can download the trailer Here.
Looks like character transfer is the phrase of the day. If you want to move to Rexxar and you're on Suramar, Draenor, Feathermoon, or Windrunner, you need to get busy. The transfer will end on Thursday, February 16. That's tomorrow.
Now, I'm happy for all of the people who get to transfer their characters to new realms to alleviate all of that clogging. However, I'd be extra happy if Blizzard could get off their duffs and fix the lag problem on Sen'jin which is a new server. It was unplayable last night and nobody wants to pay for a game that horks you off because you can't play it.
There's a new producer letter up for Star Wars Galaxies.
Going forward, our overall goal this year is to continue to improve our game by focusing on adding content that offers players the best interactive entertainment experience available online today. We are lucky as we already have the greatest entertainment brand to build content around – Star Wars .
Mmhmm that was all well and good before they changed the game. Now it's just like any other EQ clone. *big sigh*
In Newsweekly reports that Blizzard has issued a public apology to Sara Andrews. (Thank you EuroGamer)
Paul Sams, Blizzard Entertainment's chief operating officer, contacted In Newsweekly and said, "What we've done is decided to add a guild recruitment channel to the game... providing players with a designated area where they can advertise their guilds in an appropriate fashion."
This would mean that players who wish to find others to associate with will have a channel designated to finding those individuals and will not interfere with the general chat channel.
Now, I want a public apology for getting frozen out of the game so much that I logged off in a snit.
For Lord of the Rings Online Screens Go Here This world is so rich and vibrant. I've come to love the colorful WoW type graphics rather than the realistic brand. They tend look a little washed out. So anyway take a look at the new screens and then....
Well 'tis the season and 1up has the exclusive info on what Blizzard plans to do for this day of love and mush.
In order to make any headway in this rose-colored endeavor, gamers will need to stock up on "Love Tokens" from Innkeepers, which apparently constitutes the currency of love during the event. Blizzard states, specifically, that "In each capital, most of the guards and a couple dozen townsfolk are infected with amore. Periodically, they will become "Amorous" -- you'll know this by the floating heart above their head. An Amorous NPC is receptive to gifts of love, specifically Love Tokens (purchased from innkeepers). In return for a Love Token, they will reward the player with their own gifts. Some of these gifts are toys for players to play with, while others are "quest" items used to create Gift Collections." It gets more complicated than that though. Nothing is ever easy in the game of love, and as in real life, there is the horrifying possibility of rejection. But don't despair, where there's a will there's a way. In the event of rejection "there is a small chance when a player gives a Love Token to an NPC that he or she will be rejected. When this occurs, players will become "Heartbroken" for a certain amount of time. However, players can help their heartbroken friends by giving them a Friendship Bracelet and displaying the 'Power of Friendship.'"
Hah to Boomjack! People ARE going to be saying "Just one more friend and I'll log off." I guess I'm going to have to switch from auto kill mode to auto hugs. It's a little disconcerting.
