Big News Of The WeekEdit

I Just CalledEdit

In what certainly puts this last week among the least exciting we’ve ever had in terms of WoW news, Blizzard released the Dial-In Authenticator. If you sign up for the Dial-in Authenticator, you will be asked to make a toll-free phone call from a specific phone of your choosing to authorize unusual login attempts with the associated account. Please note that you will only be asked to make this phone call when something about your login attempt appears out of the ordinary. For example, if you were to log in from a location from which you do not typically play, you may be asked to call in and provide your selected PIN and a unique, single-use security code before access to the account will be granted.

Rumors And ScuttlebuttEdit

Lookin’ At Tier 11!Edit

We got a look at what appears to be Blizzard’s final pass at the forthcoming Tier 11 gear sets this week.

For The Last Time, Yes. We Think.Edit

For over a year, you’ve written us and asked us questions about race or class availability in Cataclysm. Questions like, “Will my heirloom gear work on my goblin?” or

“Can I use refer-a-friend with a new Worgen on December 8th?” or

“Will they let me race change to one of those new races immediately?” This week Blizzard reiterated that the answer is yes. To all of those. In a post on the new community site, Blizzard specifically outlined that last question, saying, “Paid faction and race changes will be available immediately once Cataclysm is released. Realm First achievements for leveling any class to 85 will be available in Cataclysm. However there will be no Realm First achievements associated with leveling characters of a specific race.”
