Patch 4.0.1a on live servers this week
A new bugfix patch appeared on Blizzard servers and it looks like this week’s maintenance will be used to upgrade the live realms to Build 13205, most likely to fix the major bugs in the current version of the game.
Ex-WoWWiki Admins Join Curse to Create Wowpedia
You probably saw a couple of forum posts about it, most of the team behind WoWWiki left the website and created a new site: Wowpedia.org. On a personal level, I’m glad that the team decided to pick Curse for this new project and I’m sure we have a great opportunity to build something really nice with that new site.
We’re extremely excited to announce that the administrators and contributors previously from WoWWiki have now joined the Curse family of websites and have created a new wiki for World of Warcraft,Wowpedia.org.
This free-to-use, community-driven wiki is the latest in our efforts to provide World of Warcraft players with premiere content and resources to help make your experiences better both in and out of the game.
Wowpedia is already booming, but it will need the help of the community to continue to thrive. Head over and make it the best wiki for World of Warcraft!
A few of the stats for Wowpedia, so far:
- More than 218,000 pages have been created, with over 84,000 content pages
- Over 72,000 users have registered to contribute to the wiki and its community
- 15administrators, all focused on building the premiere information resource for World of Warcraft
- 330,000 visits since Wowpedia went live last week
We’re also pleased to announce that for the next two months, Wowpedia will operate completely ad-free. And while we’ll need to have advertising on the website eventually to cover hosting fees, those ads will never be obtrusive or affect the flow of content on a page.
As always, it’s our goal here at Curse to provide gamers with the best possible tools, and the Wowpedia team is a great addition to the family.

Cho’gall 25 Multi-PoV and Nefarian/Onyxia Sneak Peek Videos
Paragon released another video of Cho’gall 25, this one has multiple point of views and might give you a few more details on the fight! Also, the french guild Millenium managed to activate the first part of the Onyxia/Nefarian encounter in Blackwing Descent. Currently, you cannot finish the fight and Onyxia will be stuck at 1 HP.
The Sunken Temple in Cataclysm
If you watched/attended Blizzcon you probably heard that the size of the Sunken Temple/Temple of Atal’hakkar is greatly reduced now that the top portion of the instance is gone. Basically the only thing left is a quest NPC at the entrance, some trash, and 4 easily accessable bosses, more than enough to make your rerolls very happy to run the instance!
