Meara—Community Manager of Blizzplanet/RP-PvP Forums has announced a server-wide event on Maelstrom RP-PvP Server:
“Sunday Mass – a ceremony of worship of the Holy Light, the faith shared by those of the human, dwarven, and high elven societies. Granted from the collected spirits of every sentient inhabiting the realm of Azeroth and empowered through the happiness a followerer envokes, the Holy Light is a philosophy of good and kind.
On Sunday, September 18th at 7PM CST/-6 GMT, the first Sunday Mass of the RP-PvP server, Maelstrom, will occur. Hosted by the chaplains of the Kul Tiras Marines, the ceremony will be conducted by Khor, Head Chaplain of the Marines.
Located within the halls of the Northshire Abbey, the event will take place at 7:00 PM Central (server time) and should last approximately one hour. Everyone within the Alliance faction is welcome to visit and enjoy some roleplay.
Light keep you…”

We have added an excerpt from Warcraft RPG: Lands of Conflict—written by Chris Metzen—gathering the Warcraft Timeline since the Titans arrived to year 25 where World of Warcraft the MMORPG begins. The Timeline format is somewhat different to the one in the Official Site. Summarized. Check it out in our Warcraft Timeline section.
A few hotfixes will be implemented by Blizzard today to address some issues with Zul’Gurub, Arathi Basin and Blackwing Lair.
Beginning at 4:00 AM PDT on 9/17 we will be issuing rolling restarts to all realms to apply a hotfix. We expect this to resolve several issues:
-Fixed an exploit with drakonids where players could get a head start.
-Nefarian’s drakonids have reduced damaging abilities
-The wild polymorph cast by Nefarius in Blackwing Lair, can no longer be canceled early by clicking it off.
-Arathi Basin holiday honor should now be awarding the bonus properly.
-Hakkar’s spell Corrupted Blood can no longer exist outside of Zul’Gurub
