News Round Up: World of Warcraft Loses Another 300k Subscribers and More
The awaited second-quarter call just happened and World of Warcraft is at 11.1 million subscribers, down another 300k from the last reported number. The previous quarter had reported a loss of 600k.
However, this doesn't mean revenues themselves are down or that Blizzard itself is in trouble.
Gamasutra reported today
on Activision Blizzard's second fiscal quarter earnings which were 53% higher than predicted. The company largely beat its expectations because of a large increase in digital sales company wide, which includes things like Blizzard's digital subscriptions and store. CEO Bobby Kotick followed up by saying that there would be continued investments in all of Blizzard's staple titles, including the upcoming unnamed MMO nicknamed Titan.

Vanity Roundup and Guides for 4.2
We've been enjoying the small additions as well as the major raid content in 4.2; here's an overview of some of the quirky items that didn't really fit anywhere else. We've also provided a practical guide to

The Molten Front introduces 4 additional pets and two vanity items.

Beyond Bloody Rare: A Guide to All Rares
Meet Ashelia and Perculia. They collect things and camp rares. Ashelia once spent seventy-two hours camping
. Perculia, drawn to the quirky and absurd, has a crush on
Burgy Corazón Negro
--if only he wasn't a ghost and a gnome.
It seems sort of natural, then, that for this weekend's guide we're all about rares. We've combed the database looking for rares, talked amongst ourselves, and then Perculia's made sense of our findings by writing up detailed explanations. The end result is that now there's a giant guide of every rare in the game worth camping. So while Ashelia is camping for a camel deep in Uldum and as Perculia almost considers camping
, you can read this guide and join in on the insanity.
Before you get started, make sure to download addons like

Littlest Pet Shop: A Guide to Vanity Pets
With new rewards for obtaining 100, 125, and 150 pets in 4.2, there’s been a lot of talk on how to get those few remaining elusive pets. Many players stopped after collecting 75, as there were no more incentives. Well, in 4.2 there are three new pet rewards as shown in
our video last week
, as well as several more from Firelands, so it’s time to start collecting again. (Edit: We've updated the guide for 4.3 and there are even more with the Darkmoon Faire.) Some pets are easily obtainable from questing, vendors, and achievements. Others may take some time and luck to farm up. We've got it all organized and covered for you though, so you should be able to get 150 pets easily!
of pet companions one can obtain. As you can see, there’s a good deal more than the 150 needed, but some are no longer obtainable or cost money from the Trading Card Game. You can keep track of pets on our very own Character Profiler;

Patch 4.2: Two New Hunter Pets, Molten Cats, and Dungeon Journal Interface Changes
There are a couple exciting things still left on 4.2's PTR worth checking out, so we've rounded them up here. These topics include two new hunter pets (
following up from Blizzard's original eight they introduced last week
), some new vanity items including a staff that turns you into a molten cat, and a lot of Dungeon Journal changes for functionality and appearance (it's looking very good).
We'll start with the hunter pets first since a lot of you were unimpressed with the five spiders, two spectral cats, and the reskinned owl of last week. Blizzard apparently listened to the masses and decided to add two very cool new models with their own trick for taming them.
Remaining Hunter Pets
Karkin spawns in Fireplume Peak--you'll reach him by jumping off Skitterflame's Ledge. He is a crab with a shiny metallic skin that casts a frontal fire attack from range. Again, you will have to jump between floating rocks to get in range to tame Karkin, but not too close or else you’ll be attacked.

Patch 4.2: Celestial Dragon, Nuts, Brilliant Kaliri, and Mylune's Call Preview
Vanity items and pets are fun. And if you like them, 4.2 has them in
like any beefy content patch should.
To help show you some of these cool things, we threw together a quick video of the achievement pets plus an item that you get from the 4.2 dailies:
Llamada de Mylune
. Originally we were going to just describe the item and its effect in a post, but it's one of those you should see for yourselves hence the video. The effect is surprisingly cool and it can be yours after you complete the second stage of the dailies for a mere 2,800 gold.
The additional pets we're including are the achievement pets. 3D models don't give them justice, especially when their animations are so cool (and, in the case of one squirrel, downright silly).

Arena Passes for 2011 Now Open
It's that time of the year again--Blizzard has opened registration for the arena tournament realms where players compete for a chance to win exclusive prizes, including
Pequeña lanza de Murkimus
and the elusive Vanquisher title. The title is worth getting for the sheer number of questions you'll get, we promise; for some reason, people always seem to think it's a bug with Twilight Vanquisher not displaying properly.
So are you competing this year seriously? Are you facerolling for that pet you've always wanted (he is pretty cute)? Or maybe you've already conquered past years and are passing this time? Let us know in the comments!
Oh and if you're just interested in the pet, it's 50 rated games to qualify by the end of the online qualifier.
Registration for the 2011 World of Warcraft
is now open. Remember, this year all participants in the Arena Pass have a chance to earn the exclusive Armored Murloc pet as well as the exclusive "Vanquisher" title, so get your team together and be ready for fierce competition.

Cenarion Hatchling on Sale, 100% of Profits go to Japan Relief
Blizzard is doing Japan earthquake relief their own way--with a cute in-game pet!
We've been speculating for a while how Blizzard will help Japan out, but none of us imagined they'd do this!
just went up at the Blizzard store for $10 USD with a notification that 100% of the profits for this pet will be going to the Red Cross. Let's hope a lot of WoW players buy this little guy and help out Japan in the process; it's truly a win-win for people who want to donate to a good cause and get a ridiculously cute vanity pet in the process. Blizzard definitely deserves some commendation for putting this out there to help Japan and making sure that
the proceeds go directly to the charity.

Children's Week (May 1 - 7) Guide, Including 4.1 Changes
It's been a while since a holiday has gotten a serious rehaul, but
Semana de los Niños
starts this weekend and it's going to change that. This year the event features a redone quest chain for the initial leg of quests that take place in Azeroth, inviting you and your orphan to tour the changes Cataclysm has wrought. There are some clever additions to the questline as well, notably new ice creams that are served up specifically for the holiday at a mage run shop called
Cone of Cold
and dragon kites to fly with your orphan. Both the kites and the shop can be found in each faction's major capital city.
Additionally, there are two new rewards for those pet collectors:
(reward for new Azeroth quest chain) and
(reward for old Outland quest chain). This means if you've done this event every year, you'll still have a reason to check out this year's celebration.
As usual, we also have
a comprehensive guide
to share with the Wowhead community that outlines everything you need to know about the event in a lot of detail.

A Guide to Patch 4.1's Vanity Items and a Wowhead Comic
As our own in-house artist Noxy would be quick to point out, 4.1 isn't all about the trolls and the 353 epics. It's also not just a filler patch meant to tide us over until Firelands. In fact, according to her, the patch is very important--it has a lot of shiny vanity items to play with! From ones you dig up to ones you're lucky enough to adopt, there were a lot of little things added in this patch. Read on for a wallpaper about them and a miniguide of where to find these fun items.
Rise of the Cute Kittens
Noxy was so inspired by the new vanity pets that were introduced that she made a wallpaper for you showing her true feelings towards this patch. Yes, she's awesomely talented. Yes, she should draw more.

Things To Do Now That the World is Destroyed: Get New Companion Pets!
So, apparently Deathwing coming out of the ground and destroying everything turned out to be one of the
best things to ever happen
to the World of Warcraft. It's kind of a strange way to look at things, with the paths of destruction in many zones, and the mounting tensions between even our own faction leaders, but as a player I can't help but feel like most things got pretty damn awesome. The new zones look phenomenal, the new quests / zones are more involved and storyline driven than ever before - even though I can't help but feel weird, it's like sitting in my room waiting for the apocalypse because I think it's going to be as awesome as
In the last week before the actual Cataclysm comes, there's already once again much to do that most players may not be able to make time for until after their actual Cataclysm plans (such as leveling to 85, leveling a goblin/worgen, etc.). It's okay - because the
