World of Warcraft is turning 10 years old and Blizzard is going to throw a big old party at BlizzCon, but you don’t need a BlizzCon ticket for it. Outside of BlizzCon from 8:30 PM through 10 PM on Friday November 7 you can come hang out and party outside the convention center and hotels for one giant celebration. We’ll be there, will you join us? You can read about the full celebration here: It’s been 10 epic years since World of Warcraft opened the way to Azeroth and players around the world set out on a decade’s worth of adventure. To help celebrate this momentous occasion, we wanted to invite you to join us Friday, November 7 from 8:30 p.m. until 10 p.m. for a little get-together just outside of BlizzCon in Anaheim, CA. This event is open to everyone, whether you’re attending BlizzCon or just happen to be ...

 

Warlords of Draenor Beta Ending Soon!

by JGGiant on

If you are in the Warlords of Draenor beta and there is still something that you want to see or do before the big launch, it looks like time is running out. Early this morning, Blizzard announced that the beta will be coming to a close on Monday, November 3rd at 4:00 PM PST. Additionally, they appear to have an end-of-beta event planned for 2:00 PM PST. The end of the Warlords of Draenor beta test is upon us. As of Monday, November 3 at 4:00 p.m. PST, the beta realms will be taken offline and players will no longer have access to the beta. But before we bring down the realms, we’d like to invite all beta testers to join us at 2:00 p.m. PST (Monday) for an end of beta event. We’ll laugh, we’ll cry, we’ll trade bad puns, and probably let loose just a little chaos too. ...

This week’s Play Your Way Thursday feature is especially special. No, it isn’t Deadmau5 or anything like that this time around. Even better, the BlizzPro clan has received the honor of having one of its members featured in the column again! As you may recall, I had my go at it the first time around and now Thibbledorf is in the spotlight. This week’s feature focuses on the Witch Doctor class with Thibbledorf’s crowd control build working off of the Helltooth Set. While openly admitted to be a rather underpowered set by developers and the community alike, it’s nice to see Thibbledorf making it work in this build, as he spins a new take on hybridization of support and DPS roles for the Witch Doctor. Community Representative Nevalistis breaks everything down far better than I can here in my mini-recap, so go ...

The Edge: 6.0 Impressions!

by matticus on

Episode 36: 6.0 Impressions! The first week of 6.0 has come and gone. Most of the crew tried out Siege of Orgrimmar on their characters with the updated models in a post-stat squish environment. Many of the bosses were significantly nerfed. Outside of SIege of Orgrimmar, those of you interested in soloing raids will be happy to know some of the legacy raids have been made easier. For example, Icecrown Citadel’s Dreamwalker can be skipped entirely by walking right past the mobs and the Gunship encounter can be defeated within seconds of jumping into a cannon. In other event news, Hallow’s End is also now available! Blasted Lands is seeing elements of Iron Horde forces attempting to establish a foothold in Azeroth. The Edge crew also discuss the latest news with BlizzCon. The final act has been announced! It’s Metallica! Bonus: How many Metallica references and song names can you ...

Metallica to Play at BlizzCon

by JR Cook on

It’s always fun to hear people speculate every year on who will play at BlizzCon and I don’t think anyone has ever got it right. There is no rhyme or reason on who Blizzard gets to play at their biggest show of the year and this one is no exception. Metallica will now join the ranks with Ozzy, Foo Fighters, Tenacious D, and Blink182 of the past and will be playing at BlizzCon’s closing ceremony this year. Prepare yourselves for awkward moments of the lead singer asking if you actually brought an iPad to a rock concert. You can read the full announcement here: We’re thrilled to announce that Metallica will be performing the closing concert at BlizzCon 2014, playing before a sold-out convention crowd on the night of November 8! If you didn’t score tickets to the show, don’t worry—you can still get a front-row seat from home with the BlizzCon ...
