Remote Guild Chat Now on Android, iPhone, and iPod touch



Remote Guild Chat is now available for Android™ mobile devices, iPhone®, and iPod touch®! The Remote Guild Chat feature lets you stay in touch with your guildmates wherever you go:


    - Read and contribute to your guild's in-game chat channel in real time

    - Participate in one-on-one conversations with members of your guild

    - View the members of your guild who are currently online

For a limited time, both Android and iPhone/iPod touch users can access the Remote Guild Chat feature without a subscription to World of Warcraft Remote. This free preview is currently available on all North American, European, and Korean World of Warcraft realms.

After the free preview period ends, players will need to have a subscription to World of Warcraft Remote in order to continue using the feature. We'll announce the end of the free preview period in the near future -- keep an eye on the official World of Warcraft website for further details.

To access Remote Guild Chat, players will need to download the free World of Warcraft Remote app for Android (formerly known as the Remote Auction House app) or the free World of Warcraft Mobile Armory app for iPhone and iPod touch.

To learn more about World of Warcraft Remote, which also grants you full access to the Remote Auction House, visit the World of Warcraft Remote page, or go here to subscribe. You can also share feedback on Remote Guild Chat in this thread our Website Feedback forums.

BlizzCast 16 on World of Warcraft Patch 4.2



We're excited to present the first-ever video BlizzCast, now in beautiful full-motion 2D! (Don't forget to wear your 2D glasses.) We've also jam-packed this episode with juicy information on World of Warcraft patch 4.2. Rob sits down with Game Director Tom Chilton to find out what the patch is all about, Lead Quest Designer Dave Kosak lays out info on the new Firelands quest hub, and Lead Content Designer Cory Stockton spits and flows on Ragnaros and the upcoming raid content.


Head over to the BlizzCast site to download the video. We also have an mp3 audio version available if you prefer to digest your BlizzCasts the old-fashioned way.

New Maps and Mods Tutorial: Missile Movers
« Reply #27 on: May 02, 2011, 10:00:03 pm »

New Maps and Mods Tutorial: Missile Movers



We've just expanded the StarCraft II Maps and Mods page with the Missile Movers tutorial, located here. The missile mover system allows the map maker to control motion in dramatic and entertaining ways. While typically used to configure missile-based attacks, the underlying motion defined by the missile mover system can be used to drive a reaper’s body when it jumps or a spine crawler’s tentacle when it attacks. Add this tutorial to your toolbox and get more out of your custom map creations.

Cenarion Hatchling for Japan Earthquake Relief

Cenarion Hatchling for Japan Earthquake Relief



Introducing the latest World of Warcraft companion up for adoption in the online Pet Store: the wild and noble Cenarion Hatchling! This little critter is the twin of the rare Hippogryph Hatchling pet players could randomly encounter in the first World of Warcraft Trading Card Game set, Heroes of Azeroth -- and he's emerged from the forests of Azeroth to lend a helping talon to some friends in need. For every Cenarion Hatchling purchased between now and July 31, 100% of the $10 USD adoption fee will be donated to the American Red Cross's Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami relief efforts. This support will enable the Red Cross to provide shelter, food, emotional support, and other assistance to victims of this disaster.


To learn more about the Pet Store, please visit the Pet Store FAQ.

Introducing the Followers

Introducing the Followers



In Diablo III, going it alone is a valid option... but it's not always the safest one. Fortunately, there are others in Sanctuary willing to risk life and limb to strike out at the nightmares sweeping the land. Head over to our new followers page to meet three such companions: Kormac the Templar, Lyndon the Scoundrel, and Eirena the Enchantress. While you represent Sanctuary’s greatest hope for salvation, it never hurts to have a friend watching your back.

Oh no... BlizzCon is occurring on the idiot's new prediction for the rapture.

In most countries selling harmful things like drugs is punishable. How come people can sell Microsoft software and go unpunished?
The Linux philosophy is "laugh in the face of danger". Oops. Wrong one. "Do it yourself". That's it.
Going from Windows to Linux is like trading a glider for an F117.

Diablo III Systems: Runestones

Diablo III Systems: Runestones



In Diablo III, your characters will wield their various skills to devastating effect. But once you add a runestone to a skill, it’ll transform and become even more powerful. Runestones can alter nearly everything about a skill -- the way it looks, how many enemies it hits, and what happens to those unfortunate enough to be caught in its path.

In our newest systems article, we show off several examples of just how much runestones will change the game for each character class.
