With my “Tourist Guide” series I attempted to present a comprehensive guide to the Argent Tournament and their goings-on in Northrend, so let’s look at the new content coming in Patch 3.2.
This post is Part IV in the series, a guide to all the new content introduced in Patch 3.2. This includes a new quest [...]

Note that this is a couple of months late, by now! However, I know there are some folks [...]

I’m putting them all in the one checklist because there are so few of them. Also note that all these quests are available to both Alliance and Horde [...]

Twenty-three rare gem cuts I discussed in the last post are [...]

In my recent introduction to jewelcrafting in WotLK I noted that there were a few missing stat combinations that we could expect future jewelcrafting cuts to fill. Read more for information on a number of new rare gem cuts, jewelcrafting [...]
