Season 11 PVP has begun and the new Darkmoon Faire is now available. Wowhead has a nice list of all the prizes, heirlooms, and mounts obtainable with the Faire as well as all the quests and mini games available. The new PVP gear is iLevel 403 and the old gear has been bumped down for easier availability to battleground-goers rather than arena players. That doesn’t mean that battleground players get the short end of the stick. The Daily BG now rewards 100 conquest for a win (up from 25) and every win after that awards 50.
We’re now running a Terraria server again and don’t foresee any issues with .net framework or whatever was causing us issues last time. It’s got new software (Win Server) and new hardware to boot.
Check out the Terraria Server page for more information. The server is password protected and there’s a link on the page to find out how to get that.
Notch has decided to take a temporary leave from the Minecraft team and leave the lead development job on Jeb’s shoulders – who I’m sure was more than happy to take the position. I’ve always been a fan of Jeb and considered him to be the superior programmer on the team. Don’t get me wrong, I think Notch had a great idea and it has been executed very well and wouldn’t have happened without Notch’s “vision”… but I also don’t think we’d have as great of a game without Jens coming onto the team early on.
