    what do you mean "move around." Like if I'm just messing around killing beasts in a friendly area it could suddenly change to an enemy area and I could get worked? Or is it more a territory thing (i.e. different factions can take over land formerly in control of the other faction changing it from friendly to enemy.)

    Will Blizzard do something if there's an imbalance on a server, like the Night Elves start conquering all of Durotar?

    Blizzard has stated they will not tolerate griefing, and that they will intervene in those situations. Whether or not that constitutes "taking over one of the main cities," I don't know.

    I would guess No.

    I don't think that's really possible. The more area a faction conquers the more stretched they are and the less area the other faction has the more it's concentrated. A night elf weakly defended area would easily be conquered by the horde.

    Yesterday Blizzard posted in the beta forums that the data center containing their beta servers was hit by a tornado, and so the servers were taken offline until the damage could be assessed.

    They just posted an update here - http://www.battle.net/forums/wow/thread.aspx?fn=wow-general&t=1998200&p=1#post1998200

    I found several goodies in this patch, but this one made me smile :)

    I thought of the droves of Ashenvale Bears (lvl 21+) in Auberdine.
    It's impossible to deviate from the path without training 4-5 of them.

    Hmm. No more Dwarf mages. They didn't make much sense to me anyway. I guess I'll have to be a Human mage for Elbereth.

    Dwarves had 6 of 9 classes before which is a little much compared to the 4 and 5 or 9 that other races have.

    Although I like the tyreal wings I liked the reaper better. Maybe give the reaper tyreal wings or something. Just seems weird plunking an angel down in a graveyard, sort of breaks the mood. Plus the angel looks like some sort of stupid anime fan service shit that belongs in lineage 2.

    Interesting, so if they don’t run a character wipe, there will be Dwarf Mages in OB. Would be fun to have a rare character like that.

    HA! I did this more times than I can count.

    I loved this feature in Knight Online - no more drag and drop.

    Sweet, saves me from having to make my own macro ;)

    It appears OB is going to be cut very short. So says WoW producer, making OB early October 2004 before Retail release late October 2004.

    :eek:

    Where does it say that? I can't find it on their site.

    I remember Shadowbane did that... had an open beta during the few weeks before release, followed by a retail release only a couple days after the open beta ended.
