WotLK Beta - Wintergrasp future changes
Quote from: Verimonde (Source)
We’re hoping to get the zone into better shape in the next couple patches. Here’s a few things that should be coming in the next build:
- All vehicles should be despawn after the battle ends
- Demolisher and Siege Vehicle health has been reduced by 50-75%
- Demolisher and Siege Vehicle ram attacks no longer knock a player high enough to kill them
- Jet & Bomber health has been reduced
- Bomber damage has been increased
- Players in Bombers should no longer take damage
- Reward for holding the keep has been added
- The Goblin Workshops in the North and South now also supply players with land mines that deal bonus damage to tanks
We also hope to have a system for rewarding only players that participated in the battle working soon.
WotLK Lore - The truth about the creation of the dwarven race
Don't miss the great article published earlier today, however we want to warn you that it contains Heavy Spoilers.

WotLK Beta - Blue Posts
Achievements - Spirit of Competition '08 Feat
Great idea. We implemented two Feats... one for the Tabard and one for the Pet. (src)
Achievements - Profession Recipe Collection
We're working on the ability to do these kind of achievements. We wouldn't do anything percentage based but rather choose a flat number and add more achievements as we add more content.
Most likely, you'll see a cooking version like this in the near future. Versions for the primary professions won't go live until account-based achievements are active. We don't want to encourage people picking up and dropping profressions simply to gain achievements. (src)
Anticipation & Shamanistic Focus
One change we're doing to Anticipation is changing it to 3-points, and giving it disarm reduction. We are also most likely going to change Shamanistic Focus to make it a flat mana reduction in shock cooldowns. It's too spammy right now, and the class has too many on proc buffs. (src)
Windfury Weapon concern
We'll see if we can make the ability less complicated/"mathy". (src)
Upcoming Content Patch
We'll be doing some considerable work on Warlocks before that patch hits. (src)
Furious Attacks - This talent will see some revision before retail so don't worry about a world where warriors are dual wielding daggers for MS bonanzas. (src)
