RP-PvP Servers and Patch Notes 1.7 - World of Warcraft -

Lots of news coming out of Blizzard Entertainment this Tuesday, September the 13th. First and foremost, WoW developers have announced two new RP-PvP servers designed for those players out there who love the role playing aspects of MMOs, but who like the particular challenges that PvP offers. If you fit into this category of players, check out "Emerald Dream" or "Maelstrom".

"Salutations! I, Bokkle, humble tinker and Gnomeregan exile, have come to you with wondrous news! My fellow lovers of lore and spinners of stories, we need wait no longer to find a new home; the path is open to a grand new experience not yet seen in Azeroth! Come, my friends, and rejoice! Let us celebr-eeeeerk!" The troll set his spear aside and looked down upon the tiny, prone body. "Heh. Dat gnome be chattin' so loud, he not see us comin'." "Heh." A cold smirk came to the Orc's scarred face. "The little chatterbox forgot to watch his back. No magic protects the foolish in these lands. Be on your guard -- enemies could be anywhere!"

The RP-PvP realms are live and available for play! Are you a loremonger seeking gameplay with a little more bite? Look no further! Join Emerald Dream or Maelstrom and defend the realm against your enemies!

If you're not a role player and are still looking for a good home for PvP action, we suggest Gurubashi and Smolderthorn. Charge into the fray and battle; make your mark on Azeroth!

News from Blizzard rarely comes in ones, so to follow the exciting PvP news Blizzard has also provided us with the patch notes for "Patch 1.7":

Patch 1.7 Changes


      Hidden within the jungles of Stranglethorn, an ancient Troll city full of peril has been uncovered. Do you have what it takes to delve into its mysteries with a band of hardy explorers? There's only one way to find out! Zul'Gurub is a high-level, 20-man raid instance with 120 new rare and epic items to uncover. Adventure awaits!

Arathi Basin

      Join the League of Arathor or the Forsaken Defilers as they battle for the precious resources stockpiled within the latest Battleground, Arathi Basin! Pitting 15 members of each faction against each other, the race is on to be the first to 2000 resources, capturing strategic landmarks around the Basin to increase your team's gain and cripple the enemy. With an all-new set of reputation-based rewards, there's never been a better time to join the war!

Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza

      The Stranglethorn Fishing Extravaganza is a grand new event set along the coasts of Stranglethorn Vale. Early on the appointed day, friendly neighborhood goblins will visit Ironforge and Orgrimmar to inform aspiring anglers of the grand tournament and give instructions. At the appropriate time, the shout will ring out across Stranglethorn to bait your hooks and cast your lines!...
