New design

The forums have been redesigned and we hope that you like the new looks. It should be easier to navigate around as well now. You might have noticed that the site finally received a theme as well. Of course this is just the very beginning of many more enhancements that you can expect in the coming days.

If you don't like something or if you have suggestions we strongly encourage you to post them. The next things we'll focus on will be:

  • The main navigation menu
  • take care of preview bug (posts that are previewed currently appear on white background)
  • Primary links that will appear on top
  • Smileys (need to be redone along with the smiley block)
  • Better explanations (on how to make guides etc, what and how to make news posts)
  • More graphics in general

Sapphiron defeated!

Sapphiron, the frost wyrm, last boss standing before the Lich Kel'Thuzad, has been killed for the first time today, by the guild Death and Taxes from the Korgath realm.

Apparently Sapphiron always drops two epic items, like those two:

and two of those amazing shoulder slot enchants:

Rumor has it there are more of those shoulder enchants, one that benefits ranged dps classes and one that benefits tanks. Pretty damn nice!

Now only Kel'Thuzad remains in the necropolis of Naxxramas... how long will it take until a guild defeats him? Stay tuned...

Sapphiron engaged for the 1st time!

First of all, here is a little summary of Naxxramas, home of the Lich Kel'Thuzad, and most difficult 40-man raid instance in all of World of Warcraft. There are 4 wings in Naxxramas: Abomination Wing (4 Bosses), Spider Wing (3 Bosses), Plague Wing (3 Bosses) and Deathknight Wing (3 Bosses). So that's 13 bosses already to defeat, and they need to be defeated to open the door to the last 2 bosses, Sapphiron and Kel'Thuzad.

A few days ago the guild Death & Taxes on the realm of Korgath finally defeated the last and most difficult of the 13 bosses, the Four Hoursemen, and gained entry to Sapphiron's Lair.

Here is their first video of the encounter, the least I can say is that it looks truely amazing!

High quality
Low quality

I recommend the high quality version, enjoy.

Drums of War

Cross-Realm Battlegrounds
For the first time in the history of World of Warcraft, you will be able to face off against players from other realms in the Battlegrounds. PvP Battlegrounds link Alterac Valley, Warsong Gulch, and Arathi Basin so that players from several realms will be combined into one huge matchmaking pool. Replenish your mana, sharpen your blades, and get ready for some brand-new challengers!

World PvP
The stage is set for intense, objective-based land battles as Horde and Alliance vie for control over important strategic positions and resources around Azeroth. Head out for Silithus and Eastern Plaguelands to engage the enemy on the field!

General

Threat Reduction Effects
This system has been redesigned to eliminate inconsistency in how the effects work. Previously, some were additive (for example: 30% reduction + 20% reduction = 50% reduction) while others were multiplicative (30% reduction and 20% reduction made 44% reduction, from 0.7*0.Cool. They are now all multiplicative.

Welcome on our new site!

As you can see we have moved. It took quite some time to move the old forums and guides to this site and configure everything but now the site is finally ready to be used. There are a few things that are different now, many features are improvements however the forums look totally different now. Even though the forums seem plain at first sight, they are much faster now than the old ones. There is still a lot of work to do on them, mainly about the style, but that will be done soon.

We moved to this cms because our old system was way to buggy and slow. Load times were atrocious sometimes and navigating through the site was just not enjoyable anymore. This system is much faster, cleaner and a lot lighter on the code. Also the site has a 'throttle' function which reduces the sites features if there is a lot of traffic, while still keeping content accessible as fast as possible.

Our site now has stopped trying to provide many different things like downloads and macros as well as guides. We find that we weren't able to focus on anything well enough beside guide making. So we decided to take a load off our shoulder and concentrate fully on guides, which will improve guide quality and the pace at which we'll provide them as well. People are strongly encouraged to participate in guide writing, we have added rewards etc. but all about that can be read here: http://www.wow-pro.com/node/722

Things that still need to be done:

- forums need a rehaul in looks and avaliable features, e.g. badges need to be shown etc.
- join dates are toally messed up, need to be corrected
- the site needs it's theme completely redesigned and graphics need to be made for different parts of the site
- user points need to be rewarded for votes that people get on their guides
- avatars should normally appear in a different spot in comments (outside of forums that is)

(Btw don't forget to use the "read more" link under each post on the front page, what you see is mostly only a teaser).
I won't list all the features that the site has now, I'll let you discover those on your own, though the most important change I want to hint at is that forums aren't used for guides anymore AT ALL. Only for discussing. Another important thing is that for now new and old posts aren't well enough distinguished, so use the "recent posts" link to find all new posts and comments. If you have any suggestions or feedback, use the contact form or write a PM to me. (Btw your PMs were imported, however they might contain a few charset errors, apologies for that)

Btw, usernames have been ported over you can just log in with your username and password, just like on the old site.

- Snowflake

P.S. Another thing: All the links have been fixed inside the guides to match the new site but on the forums most links to other forum topics etc. probably won't work, sorry for that.

Guide Writing

You want to contribute but aren't sure as to how? Follow this step by step guide on how to contribute correctly:

  • There are three types of contributions you can make, a guide book page, a guide project or a news post:
    • A guide book page - short explanation: This is ONLY for people who have a guide already worked out in their head and want to dedicatedly work alone on a guide with the sole purpose of finishing it as soon as possible. This basically directly adds a page to the existing Guide Books that we already have. Guide book pages may only be edited by their respective author and no one else.
