To celebrate the launch of out last major content patch, double XP will be active starting right now, until the evening ICC launches.

Icecrown Citadel will start with the zone buff at 0% and will be gradually increased over time, so make sure to down the Lich King before it becomes trivial!

May 11th patch notes:

- Icecrown Citadel is open!
- Current ICC buff: 0%
- Three quests are now auto-complete: "Lightning-Infused Relics", "The Delicate Sound of Thunder", "News from the East"
- Individual battleground queues elevated back to minimum 3 on both sides. Queues for SOTA, IOQ and AV reduced to 3v3 (from 4v4).
- I've received a letter from one infamous "Noxiosa Omegabane". Here's the transcript:

Code: Select all


The latest advancements in Engineering have discovered a way to quantify the amount of actual honor coursing through your body! Studies have also shown that snorting Honor is so much more effective than eating mana crystals.

We are looking for brave soldiers with too much Honor to come and donate their hard-earned grit for superficial, fleeting rewards! You can find us in a dark corner in the Dalaran sewer.

And remember, you're not helping us sell honor-based drugs, you're doing this for SCIENCE!

Noxiosa Omegabane."
