Ignis the Furnace Master has been tweaked by Blizzard to lower his DPS in Heroic Ulduar 25-man. Some guilds are reporting their main tank is getting one-shot by Ignis within 20 seconds into the encounter. Blizzard will compensate by increasing his hit rating.
This has been a hot topic in the community latety concerning the stealth-removal of the Hot Hot Hot Streak/Flawless Victor achievement without a mention of it in the live 3.1 patch notes. Blizzard now has an official statement about this. The achievement was removed due to an exploit, and it willl be re-implemented at a later time.
Our sister site, Worldofwar.net, has a giveaway of five World of Warcraft: Arthas Collector’s Edition. If you missed Blizzplanet’s, then head over there to participate.
Myndflame has released a new machinima video titled Theory of a Death Knight. A good watch while patch 3.1 is released during Maintenance downtime. It has heavy use of the “F” word and maybe other inappropiate language however. Use discretion.
Blizzard has announced the winners of the recent Blizzard Theme Park Contest. The lucky winners will get some cool swag for reward. Take a look:

Patch 3.1 is almost upon us, and Blizzard’s AWESOMENESS is shown off with the debut release of The Secrets of Ulduar official trailer. Prospector Brann Bronzebeard flees Ulduar to alert Rhonin at the Violet Citadel in Dalaran that the Explorer’s League expedition’s raid on Ulduar failed, and that Yogg-Saron has escaped. There Jaina Proudmoore and King Varian arrive to meet with Rhonin for a possible support of Alliance forces to attack Ulduar. Thrall and Garrosh arrive to Dalaran for a meeting with Rhonin too—- and a battle between Varian and Garrosh ensues. Hatred is in the air for what happened at the Wrathgate, and that’s something that won’t be easily forgiven.
Varian refuses to join forces with the Horde because his forces have been killed more by the Horde in this Northrend campaign than by the Scourge. Garrosh messes up big time too. Without the support of the Alliance and the Horde, the Kirin Tor must face the mysteries of Ulduar on their own with the help of heroes.
It is up to heroes like you to hear the call, and to band together with Rhonin and the Kirin Tor to put an end to Yogg-Saron and to unveil The Secrets of Ulduar. Watch this great trailer here.
Blizzard has updated their UI developement policy granting a grace period to the UI addon community to comply. Those who do not comply after May 19 will be contacted by the infamous Blizzard Legal Department. A letter you really won’t want to ever have in your inbox, no doubt. Blizzard is known to win most if not all of their cases in court. This policy was triggered when certain addon communities were selling the addons or advertising within World of Warcraft through the UI system.
Blizzard Entertainment bids farewell to Dave Arneson, a pioneer of the roleplaying genre (alongside Gary Gygax) who inspired the boom of board games, d20, tabletop, MMO and RPG games. Last year, Blizzard dedicated patch 2.4 (Sunwell Plateau) to Gary Gygax. It remains to be seen if they will do the same for Dave with patch 3.1.
