I consider myself a purist in that I would prefer classic to be released as close as possible to the original. Where that is on the spectrum of patch content will be up to blizz. I'm also not vane enough to believe that any single state of the game is the "Ideal" location we should be aiming for. There is common ground that we can agree on, and I would welcome more than a few changes as long as they are made in the spirit of keeping classic on the vanilla rails.
The fact that Cookie's Tenderizer from the Deadmines had +3 instead of +2 strength. The fact that the Stormwind south bank had one instead of two mailboxes. The fact that Jaina's Proudmore's name was "Jaina Proudmore" instead of "Jaina Proudless." Stuff like this isn't what mattered. It was arbitrary. If Cookie had dropped a shield instead of a mace and Jaina had been named Susan, nobody would have cared. It wasn't specific details like these that caused us to enjoy the game.
For those of you who don’t know, a content delivery network is a “geographically distributed group of servers which work together to provide fast delivery of internet content”. Blizzard uses one for the transfer of terabytes worth of assets, patches, updates, and other game content for use in their Battle.net game service, as with a number of other online services.

The 8.2 raid has us venturing into Queen Azshara's Eternal Palace and face off against her most powerful minions, so today we'll be taking a stroll through the palace, courtesy of LeysTV. The Queen herself was only recently tested on the PTR, but first let's take a look at the first 7 bosses we'll be facing, as well as the lengthy intro to the raid:
Analogy: think back on riding the swings in kindergarten. Was it fun? Now, imagine going back to those swings exactly as they were, and sitting in them now, as an adult. They're too small. They don't fit. Your feet drag on the ground because they're so low to the ground. The bar over your head is low enough that you can reach out and touch it, and even at the highest the swing will go, it's only about chest high when you're standing up. It's exactly the same swing, but riding on it now is a very different experience, yes?

After all the "not a bug" issues that have been reported on the Classic beta, we thought it would be nice to take a look at a more serious report that actually takes some time to take a look at the issues discussed and present some proper evidence and data. Mirayne over on the official forums took time to detail some possible major discrepancies for parry, dodge, block, miss and crit values when facing higher level enemies.

In the Duelist Kingdom tournament, Bonz, Sid and Zygor met Bandit Keith, who agreed to coach them through the tournament, so all four of them would advance to Pegasus Castle. Keith wanted revenge against Maximillion Pegasus for humiliating him in the final match of the Intercontinental Championship. While helping them win Duels the first day of the tournament, Keith secretly intends to use them for their Star Chips. When Keith finds out about Yugi Muto, Joey Wheeler, and the rest of the gang, he plans to get in their way and eliminate them.

WoW Classic is officially launching August 27th at midnight GMT (6 p.m. EST August 26th), so you have plenty of time to get all your favorite grinding snacks in order — might we suggest some vanilla ice cream? We’ll be seeing some action sooner than that, since there are several waves of closed beta stress tests plus a continuous closed beta a smaller number of people will get to participate in. 

Patch 8.2, the Rise of Azshara, is coming soon and the Naga play a central role in it, obviously, but it seems they were supposed to play a bigger role a long, long time ago as well. Mark Kern, team lead for Vanilla WoW, recently talked about playable races that were planned for the original game's launch (while playing the Classic beta/stress test, quite appropriately), and that there were initially supposed to be around 20 of them! They quickly realized they had to be more realistic about their content plans so that number went down fast, but apparently Chris Metzen was really disappointed the Naga didn't make the cut.

Recently the new essence received from PvP which gives you access to an extra PvP talent, that also works in PvE situations, has made waves and there are plenty of threads about it on the forums. One in particular got a blue response which clarified just how powerful and how relevant the essence is supposed to be for PvE-focused players. Each spec gets a specific PvP talent added and some of them currently selected on the PTR are a little too powerful and feel mandatory for PvE, such as Moonkin Aura for Boomkins and Leader of the Pack for Feral Druids, but Blizzard clarified it is not their intention to have must-have talents for PvE available through the essence, as its primary goal is to add additional choice for PvP players.
Zygor's Leveling and Loremaster guide is the ultimate tool for players who want to level up quickly and earn the coveted Loremaster achievement. This guide will lead you quest by quest through every zone, telling you exactly where you need to go, how to complete objectives, and everything else required to reach level 120 in the fastest time possible.

Once released, it would be the first time the World of Warcraft Classic beta will be available to a greater number of players. The first taste we got was back in November last year, during Blizzcon’s official reveal of Classic. This beta started you off at level 15 and capped at 19, probably because there was only a limited time to play. The beta also included only two zones, Barrens for the Horde and Westfall for the Allliance. Here’s hoping that this new beta will be much more expansive and can accommodate more players.
