Win a BlizzCon Polar Bear Mount!

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in BlizzPlanet Site News

Maticus has posted at Worldofwar.net a new contest where the prize is an awesome Blizzcon 2008 card code with a Polar Bear Mount … the one that has a baby murloc sitting on its neck.  You can even wear your Murloc costume suit while mounted and have your murloc pet or Tyrael pet out while riding it. If you want this prize visit the contest page for further instructions.

As a special holiday treat for our readers, we’re giving away one of the awesome Polar Bear mounts complete with murloc waving a BlizzCon flag. These were only given to people that attended or paid to watch BlizzCon which took place in Anaheim, California back in October hence they are very rare – especially in Europe and other regions of the world.

The mount itself is Bind to Account, which means you can swap it around between all your characters. Once a character has learnt to summon the mount, you can mail it on to the next one.

If you’d like to enter the draw for this mount, all you have to do is comment in this thread. The draw closes on Saturday at 00:01 GMT, December 27 2008. Good luck, and Season’s Greetings!

World of Warcraft: Night of the Dragon - Fans Spoilers Chat

Written by Medievaldragon on . Posted in BlizzPlanet Site News, Lore, Novels, World of Warcraft News

The World of Warcraft: Night of the Dragon novel by Richard A. Knaak hit bookstores on November 18. It’s been nearly two weeks, and most fans have read through the book. Lore fans are invited to discuss the book’s storyline and to share opinions and ideas. We will peel off this novel to analyze what it may foreshadow to the lore and to World of Warcraft: Wrath of the Lich King (MMO). Unconfirmed rumor might be spawn from this novel that the next content patch could be a Grim Batol dungeon.

There are a few details in the novel that clearly marks the time-frame the events happen in. Anveena’s sacrifice at the Sunwell Plateau is mentioned by an angry Kalecgos who shoved it at Krasus, blaming him.

This is mostly a fans chat with full spoilers. Only attend if you have read the book, or don’t mind spoilers, or the book won’t be available in your country for a long time and you wish to learn more of its content.

The fans chat will take place on Sunday, November 30 at 1:00 pm EST (New York) or 6pm (UK).

Blizzplanet:  The Lore chat will start very soon in two hours at 5:00pm. You can catch up anytime. I am hoping to chat for a minimum of three hours. The topic is What sort of thing would you like to see in future World of Warcraft books?

However, fans can also suggest Starcraft or Diablo books. If you really wish Blizzard and Pocket Star Books or Tokyopop to tell the story of certain stage in the past of Azeroth, Koprulu sector, or Sanctuary—feel free to submit your suggestion and discuss yours and others’ ideas.

Blizzplanet:  alrite, let’s commence

[Comment From Mike]
Ok, first idea: Kerrigan’s past and how she came to serve Mengsk.
5:33
Blizzplanet:  I think this one was covered in Starcraft: Uprising
5:33
[Comment From Silverfall]
Hello MD.  How are you doing?
5:33
[Comment From PsiSeveredHead]
Personally, I think Infested Stukov needs to be covered.
5:34
Blizzplanet:  Doing alright. Almost didn’t make it. Got carried away playing Half-Life 2: Deathmatch ;p
5:34
Blizzplanet:  Infested Stukov, that’s a good idea. In the SCLegacy Q&A, Metzen said that Starcraft N64 mission was canon.
5:34
[Comment From Hawki]
IT was

[Comment From PsiSeveredHead]
Hardly anyone knows about him, he’s only been in that mission in a game hardly anyone played (Resurrection IV), and many people don’t realize it’s canon, either.

[Comment From Hawki]
Sorry, missed a bit. Anyway, I formulated a list of suggestions:

[Comment From Mike]
Argh, I haven’t read that one. ^^

[Comment From PsiSeveredHead]
And who is Kaloth, and how, as a Cerebrate, is he still alive?
5:35
[Comment From Hawki]
Warcraft

-Is there any chance of the events of the First War being told in novel format, similar to how the Second War received such treatment from Rosenberg and Golden? The Last Guardian was set in the timeframe, but it was something in the background rather than a main plot point for the most part.

-Is there any chance of a story actually set during World of Warcraft? Cycle of Hatred acted as a prelude to WoW, Rise of the Horde served as backstory for BC
