Alert: Emeriss Green Dragon Removed

This alert is announced to fans so that time is not wasted transporting to the spawning place.  Emeriss the Green Dragon was removed to hotfix certain issues not disclosed by Blizzard.

Tseric: ” The green dragon Emeriss will be temporarily removed from game, as we work to correct an issue with it. We hope to have the creature returned to it’s ornery self as soon as possible”

However, fans are sharing to others what the cause of this exploit was.  Some fans are saying that the Gnomish Engineering item known as the Shadow Deflector was killing the dragon very fast and certain players were exploiting this in farming-mode to loot a few epic gear.  This is not official,  nor confirmed by Blizzard.

BlizzCon: Battlegrounds Tournaments

BlizzCon, Blizzard’s inaugural gaming convention, will feature a king-of-the-hill tournament on World of Warcraft’s newest battleground: the Arathi Basin.

Players can join as part of a full pre-chosen team, as a small group, or as an individual in a pickup team. After each match, the players on the winning team will keep their seats while the losing team members give up their bank of computers to the next challengers.

In all, there will be three concurrent matches of Arathi Basin going on all day during both days of the convention. The team that retains its status as Kings of the Basin for the most consecutive wins will face the ultimate challenge on each day of the show: a battle against a team of World of Warcraft developers. In addition, there will be other prizes for teams that win multiple consecutive matches.

Jeff Grubb: Pokemon Figure Game

We are nearing a public interview with Jeff Grubb, concerning Warcraft: The Last Guardian.  The interview will take place at our Forum partner RP-PvP.com IRC chat.  I will provide details as soon as they become available.  For now, I wanted to tell fans of Jeff Grubb, of his latest project. This may be exciting to some Pokemon Collectors in Europe and Asia, sans-USA.

So, this morning, 1 AM (local time)/10 AM (in Germany), at the Essen Toy Fair, Pokemon-USA announced that it was releasing a new Pokemon Trading Figure Game in Europe and Australia (Not America, yet). At that time, we also announced the web site for the game, at Pokemon-Figures.com

Did I create this game? No, it was the work of Pokemon TCG creators. Did I do the graphics? Nay, they were the work of Rick, our graphics designer. Did I do the writing? No, that was done through the Marketing Department and edited ably by Mike. Well, how about uploading the entire beast? No, that was done by Eric, our Web Tech Guru.

So what the heck did I do? Monitoring everything that happened, tracking down resources, making corrections, keeping people updated, talking to people, and keeping folk from jumping out of windows as we kept adding features. You know, that management thing.

And I feel pretty accomplished by it all.

More later

If you want to read a funny as heck blog made by Jeff Grubb concerning the theft of his Trash can, go read it here, under October 13-entry.  We also added a new section where you can read a mini-bios and bibliography of Jeff Grubb.

Malfurion Stormrage is In-Game

A player that has advanced through killing one of the four Emerald Dream dragons made a great discovery.  It seems the Emerald Dream instance isn’t too far from been released.  The dream form of Malfurion Stormrage NPC came before Remulos in the Moonglades to report that C’thun the fifth Old god is the cause of the Nightmare within the Emerald Dream.  We get to discover that Cenarius’ spirit is helping Malfurion in the Emerald Dream—which is a big chance Cenarius NPC will offer quests at some point.  Malfurion also mentions that Illidan has lost his mind after his defeat during his showdown with Arthas.  Read the brief dialogue between Malfurion and Remulos at our Wow Story Arcs section

The Fifth Old god C’Thun and the Qiraji

The Silithus storyline seems to be among the most epic lorewise to be released in patch 1.8.  One of the quests involves Geologist Laksbane who reads from an ancient script the story of the origin of the Qiraji, revealing that indeed a fifth Old god existed.  This Old god is named C’Thun—creator of the Qiraji.  The Silithid were one of the creatures sprung to life by the Well of Eternity, but used as a tool by the Old god C’Thun to serve as avatars.  The Avatars were known as the Qiraji, who enslaved the Silithid as hosts.  According to War of the Ancients Trilogy novel, three Old gods were imprisoned beneath the ground by the Titans.  In Darkshore, by the Master’s Glaive, can be found the skull of one of the Old gods impaled by a Titan sword.  The revelation of C’Thun—an old god fallen in Silithus—confirms the existence of a fifth god.  Read the full story at our Wow Story Arcs section
