The World of Warcraft 5.0.4 patch has been out for 2 days, so it's about time I published a new addon. BuffGuide shows you your raid buff status (for the new 8 buff system), along with food and flask buffs, replacing the long-ago discontinued BuffEnough. Source is on GitHub.

I've also updated Precedence for 5.0.4, but only the Hunter module so far and it's not quite ready for a release.

World of MapCraft

For quite a few months I have been working on creating a full set of zoom-able slippy maps for World of Warcraft. After much dithering, it's finally ready, along with an article about its creation and the WoW internals needed to build it.

You can read the article or head straight on over to the live maps.

WoW Intel HD Graphics bug

If you play wow on intel integrated graphics and you've been freezing on the last boss in hour of twilight, this thread contains the answer.

so this is interesting - blizzard to release auction house integration into armory. and some of it to be premium? on top of the $15 per-account per-month subscription fee, i assume. but the big question is will it support buying and selling over the web? and via an api. oooh

the world is imploding - tweetcraft auto-tweeting seems awful

this still remains the best wow video of all time. need to level my druid

a bunch of class changes are upcoming in wow - including no ammo for hunters? huh?

12th December, 11:00 am

wow now has paid sex-changes, and they're much cheaper than the real thing. this pay-for-addons model is great for players and blizzard alike

24th January, 11:38 am

sounds like someone is lapsing

11th December, 8:51 am
