Back to normal this week. Or as normal as you can get when Turpster, The T, graces TNB with his presence. We talk about Hearts, Hands and Voices, Blizzcon is NOT in Vegas (or is it), and Wrath is 1! (Happy Birthday!!!)

TNB and AU had some site problems this week.. but we thind we’ve gotten them ironed out. Despite the problems:

Online Calendar at the wow armory shows Pilgrim’s Bounty holiday running from 11/8-11/14. In-game shows it from 11/22-11/28. Since I hadn’t noticed anyting in game I’m going to go with the in-game calendar as being correct. In which case.. watch out on the 22nd for the new holiday. Will discuss the holiday in our next show.
Patch 3.3: (current PTR patch notes)
- ICC is up on the PTR for testing.
- Occulus gets a nerf.
- No longer need to do all wings to get the Saphiron (probably in prep for the weekly raid quests)
- New quest tracker is back in the UI for this patch. Think of it as everything from Questhelper except for the arrow from TomTom.
Viva Las Blizzcon! Blizzcon! in July!! in Vegas!!.. or not.
