New Races in the Next Expansion - There seems to be a general consensus amongst all WoW newsies that the next expansion will bring with it two new races. The Alliance will likely see the arrival of the Worgen in their ranks and the Horde will be joined by the Goblins. This is still just speculation at this point, but all we're really waiting for is the final nod from the powers that be.
WoW Blogger Gets In-Game Tribute - Sometimes there are those people that come along who go the extra mile to help to bring more joy, fun and knowledge to our favorite game. It is always sad to see them go. About four months ago WoW enthusiast and hunter class blogger Daniel Howell (aka Big Red Kitty) bid the WoW community farewell to concentrate more time on his family. He has been sorely missed not just by his fans, but apparently by Blizzard themselves as the most recent patch brought with it an obvious tribute to him. The BRK 1000, a pretty darn awesome Gun that all the cool hunters will be wielding drops from the Tribute Chest in the new 5 man instance. Long Live Big Red Kitty!!
So, How Big is Ice Crown Anyhow? - In a response to a thread in the tanking forums this week Blizzard poster Ghostcrawler dropped an interesting little tid-bit of information for anyone paying attention. He talks about Icecrown Citadel and refers to it's 31 bosses...yes, 31! This is way more than Ulduar's count or Karazhan or even Naxx. No matter how you slice it, 31 raid bosses is a ton of bosses to go through -- Icecrown could be a return to a really epic, large-scale instance. Bring it on!
