Wrath of the Liche King - Non-Linear Dungeons Return!

For those of us who are Old School WoW raiders, Blackrock Depths was probably your first venture into a large, non linear dungeon which allowed yo to go where you wanted and kill bosses in your own order.

The fact of the matter was that Blackrock Depths really did allow you to explore!. It provided a lot of adventure which many other dungeons lack as you chain pull down a single corridor. I liked the fact that the keys for the doors was hard to obtain, allowing more select groups to advance to certain areas more easily. I liked the feeling that in this instance you were actually progressing.

It was for this reason that the Burning Crusade left me feeling a little disappointed, and why Karazhan remains my favorite Raid, hell my favorite instance. It seems that in the Burning Crusade you found yourself stuck in very linear gameplay, doin the same thing over and over, following a corridor to the next boss over and over again, whether you were in a raid or an instance.

Fortunately Blizz has been listening to the World of Warcraft community and has moved forward with plans to create a new breed of non linear Raid and 5-man instances, allowing for variation, progression and most importantly entertainment for WoW Raiders!

Since Patch 2.4 was released there has een a huge influx in daily quests, most of them easy to do and all of them giving a lot of Gold. The Shattered Sun Offensive Daily Quests are by far the best daily quests for making gold quickly and bumping up your Shattered Sun Offensive Reputation.

Like many players I tend to do as many daily quests as possible in my free time to get as much gold as possible out of them, after all 2 for 5 minutes work isn't bad!

I did however have trouble finding a complete list of the dailies, so here they are, the entire Patch 2.4 Daily Quest List!

Shattered Sun Offensive Phase One

Shattered Sun Offensive Phase Two
Shattered Sun Offensive Phase 2 (50%)

Shattered Sun Offensive Phase Three

Shattered Sun Offensive Four

New Daily PVP Quests

Reputation Shattered Sun QuestsAnd there you have it, the entire Patch 2.4 Daily Quests, a great way to make lots of gold fast, and the reputation with the Shattered Sun Offensive wont hurt either!

Season 4 Arena Gear Hitting the Shelves Soon!

So it seems that Season 4 is immanent, the rollout of large numbers of Epic Kick Arse Gear is pretty soon going to cover the realms and us poor raiders who are still making our way to the new end game will be suffering once more.

There is some good news though, despite the looks getting yet again almost identically copied (Please blizz you can manage to hire a few more designers can't you?) the new top end Arena sword will be an entire 10 points bellow the equivalent Raid Drop.

And while the incoming Season 4 will soon be arriving to players Drysc from Blizzard will not say how soon other than to say he wants to see more Guilds take down Kil'jaeden, who is currently standing undefeated bar 0.03% of the guilds in World of Warcraft, hell only 3.88% of Guilds have made it in to the Sunwell Platau Raid Instance.

In the meantime its upto us solid PvE'rs to progress with speed to get our gear up before the Arena Goers can torunce us again!
