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).

I wrote a review of the World of Warcraft: Ashbringer # 2 available at comic shops and newsstands, accompanied by a lengthy spoiler summary. You can read the first and omit the latter, or you can read both at your discretion. This comic book written by Micky Neilson fleshes out the betrayal of Mograine’s son, and introduces the very moment the Scarlet Crusade and the Argent Dawn are founded.
Blizzard is opening a new PvP Realm (US) for free transfers from 29 realms simultaneously. If your realm has long queues or you simply wish to venture in new frontiers and new people, consider transferring to the Drak’Tharon (PvP) realm. You can read the long list of servers able to transfer to Drak’Tharon after the break.

||We would like to extend the time these transfers will be offered to Drak’Tharon. We now plan to close them on Monday, December 1 at 10:00am PST. Keep in mind these transfers could still close before this time so if you plan to move, we recommend that you do so at your earliest convenience.
We will be offering free character moves from selected high population realms to a brand new PvP realm, Drak’Tharon, to assist in population dispersal. The ability to move a character on the selected source realms will become available starting on Monday, November 17 at 11:00PM PST, and is scheduled to run until Monday, November 24 at 12:00PM PST. Drak’Tharon is a central timezone realm on the Emberstorm battlegroup.
In the event that these realms meet our transfer goals before the scheduled end date, the transfers to that realm will be disabled. We highly recommend that if you are planning to transfer that you do so at your earliest convenience. No characters will be eligible for these free moves once the transfers have been closed.
You can begin your transfer by visiting the Character Move page located here: https://www.worldofwarcraft.com/account/character-move.html
We will continue to evaluate realms and add more free character moves as we feel they are needed.

Times Online reported a Swedish 15-years-old boy collapsed and convulsed after playing Wrath of the Lich King for 24 hours straight. The doctor’s diagnosis was that he had a combination of sleep deprivation, lack of food, and the prolonged period of concentration playing the game. Parents need to be more watchful of their children and even adults need to be mindful about their own health.
“The 15-year-old boy and his friends were playing Wrath of the Lich King when he suffered what appeared to be an epileptic seizure, it was reported today.
WoW Insider interviewed Lead Game Designer of World of Warcraft Tom Chilton (Kalgan) at the midnight release of Wrath of the Lich King in Anaheim. They talked about the raid philosophy and the growth of the game in North America among other topics. Read the transcript.
