MMORPG Update: WoW News
I’ve been almost solely playing WoW recently with my band of fellow worgens, battling our way through each expansion towards the glory of level 90. I’ve just hit 80 with my holy priest and I can honestly say that I’m enjoying every minute of being a healer, first time playing this class and I’d take this over a DPS role anyday – I do miss the thrill of hacking into your enemies with a massive sword or mace though! There have been just a few things going on in the Blizzard realm recently, first and foremost the first batch of BlizzCon 2013 tickets went on Sale, we’ve had the latest installment of Dawn of the Aspects released and Pinnacle of Storms became available in Raid Finder.

First Batch of BlizzCon 2013 Tickets Sold Out
When the first batch of tickets went on sale on the Wednesday 24th April it was certain that they would be sold out, but if you didn’t manage to get your hands on a ticket in the first batch a second batch of tickets will be going on sale on Saturday 27th April at 10am PDT. There are also tickets available by buying the pre-BlizzCon charity dinner tickets. If like me you are not lucky enough to be physically going to the actual event there will be virtual tickets on sale at a later date so you can still be part of the event.

Dawn of the Aspects Part Three Released
The third book in the 5-part ebook series written by Richard A. Knaak is now available, you can download the latest version through the Apple iBooks store or you can download it from Amazon. In this book the proto-dragons rally against Galakrond, while Kalecgos is beginning to lose his own identity. The visions he is having (seeing through the eyes of Malygos) are becoming more and more real to him and he struggles to tell the past from the present. Jaina meanwhile investigates the artifact that is causing Kalecgos’ visions and this leads to shocking revelations about it’s origins. For more information about this series and the publication schedule, take a look at our blog post here: http://www.thegamersblog.com/mmorpg-update-dawn-of-the-aspects.
Pinnacle of Storms is Now Available
On the 17th April the final wing of the Throne of Thunder was made available, the Pinnacle of Storms. You will face Iron Qon, the Twin Consorts, and Lei Shen – the Thunder King. In order to access the Throne of Thunder in Raid Finder you will need a minimum average ilevel of 480. This marks the completion of the Throne of Thunder raid that was released in patch 5.2.
I’m off to do a couple of dungeon runs now, good luck to everyone hoping to get BlizzCon tickets on the 27th April!
