April Fools' 2011 - We Won't Forget You, Crabby
Yet another April Fools' Day has come and gone softly into the night, leaving in its wake a bunch of jokes and rumors. This year seemed tame to the previous one, where we heard about everything from top guilds merging to aquariums being added, but sometimes tame is good--especially where being pranked is concerned. All in all, there were still some great jokes around the WoW community to be found and fun to be had.
Some of our favorites were:
told us about a newly implemented companion loyalty
. I mean, as Breanni puts it, Hunter pet loyalty is gone--but where exactly did it go?
A guild some of you may have heard of, Paragon,
came up with an elaborate guide to an encounter involving a certain Firelord you may also have heard of
Wings of Chaos and Divine Wings
made us sad when we realized they weren't

Wowhead Exclusive: Level 80 (85?) Elite Tauren Chieftain NEW SONG, "Warriors of Azeroth"
So since there were a ton of other media outlets present at the Cataclysm Launch Event, I was convinced that someone else would have a fancy professional video of this up long before I had the opportunity to do it myself, but It's 5:30 and I still don't see any other videos. So, here it is!
The Artist Formerly Known As Level 80 Elite Tauren Chieftain has written a new song!
This one is dedicated to all the
s out there—it's entitled
Warriors of Azeroth!
This is a

New Dwarf Female Hairstyles, Still No New Model
Something unexpected out of the latest Cataclysm Beta build - they've updated some of the existing
hairstyles! So far, they've changed three of the existing hairstyles and added one new one. I haven't checked all of other races to see if they've gotten anything new, just confirmed that the troll female hairstyles are all still bad.
Blizzard, Blizzard, Blizzard — you can add all of the new hairstyles you want but it won't change the fact that there are simply some player character races out there which are dramatically in need of some updates. Maybe after the Cataclysm, Deathwing could ravage over some NPC models as well? It worked for Desolace, right?
The hairstyles changed are, in order,
. Click to see 'em all big and dwarfy (wait, that makes no sense). Enjoy!
Blizzard Homage to Red Shirt Guy
We waited a little while to post this to make sure it wasn't private server shenanigans, but it looks like it's been confirmed—Blizzard has done an homage to the man now known only as
Red Shirt Guy
, not only by restoring
to his rightful position as Wildhammer Clan Representative, but he is now joined by an assistant: the
Wildhammer Fact Checker!
The above screenshot is leaked from an internal beta build, but
Alex Afrasiabi has confirmed
that it's real—red shirt and all. As soon as he appears on live servers, we'll have him on our db for comments and screenshots. :)
Congratulations, Red Shirt Guy. I hope Blizzard hires you to check their facts.

BFF Report Rummages Through Steam's Indie Bin
After months of heated debate and seventeen riveting
Hungry Hungry Hippos
has finally granted access for yours truly to post BFF Report episodes here on the lovely Wowhead Blog. And, while it may have cost me twenty big-toe massage sessions and my dignity, I'm proud to have finally made it to this stage in my life. Now to the meat and healthy carbohydrates portion of this week's post...
Last week I took it upon myself to dig through the dollar(ish) bin in the XBOX Live market and left all you PC gamers mildly unsatisfied. As a result, I've turned my focus to Steam in hopes to find something indie, cheap and worthy of my precious in-between-MMOs time... which I apparently have had ample amounts of these past few weeks!

The Lich King is Still Alive...

What better machinima could exist than one combining two of the most evil and sinister villains in recent gaming history, our beloved (yeah, right)
