Big News of the WeekEdit

You can be exalted…just like grandpa used to.
“After a player-base melt down of catalclysmic proportions over the last couple of weeks, Blizzard has decided to back down from their decision to devalue the Exalted Title. Bashiok tells the tale…

“”Recently we changed ‘the Exalted’ title to require 50 exalted titles up from 40, which meant those that had achieved it were now asked to get 10 more reputations to gain the title back. We felt this kept the title as a difficult reward given the additional reputations introduced with Cataclysm, and also avoided the problem of achievement inflation as the game continues to grow, devaluing the reward.”

So without further ado, lets peal back the onion and see what’s inside! The new king of the DPS hill is… Shadow Priests.
