Should the WoW:EU group migrate from Bladefist to Outlands?

We are currently having discussions and a poll on whether or not the SSX on Bladefist should migrate to Outlands or not.

Outlands is a brand new server which will be using new hardware, currently a massive proportion of the Bladefist community are seriously considering migrating there. Should we move too or should we stay on Bladefist?

Please join in the discussions in the Bladefist group forum, migration from Bladefist to Outlands is planned for: April 17th - 21st.

SSX down Nefarian!!

This evening the SSX on Bladefist stepped in to Blackwing Lair and defeated the one and only Nefarian!

-Nefarian is the final boss of the Blackwing Lair instance and up until just recently with the introduction of the Temple of Ahn'Qiraj (AQ40), he was the hardest boss in Azeroth.

This is a huge achievement for the SSX!

Congrats! - AQ40 here we come!!!

The Burning Crusade: Hellfire Citadel Preview

On the blasted world of Outland, within the heart of Hellfire Peninsula stands Hellfire Citadel, a nearly impenetrable bastion that served as the Horde's base of operations throughout the First and Second Wars. For years this gargantuan fortress was thought to be abandoned...

Until recently.

New Ahn'Qiraj Trailer!

Something sinister dwells within Ahn'Qiraj, something that gave pause even to the mighty dragons when they led the night elven forces into the heart of the qiraji empire during the War of the Shifting Sands. In this new gameplay trailer featuring footage of the opening of the Gates of Ahn'Qiraj, watch an enormous group of heroes, from both the Alliance and the Horde, gather before the Scarab Wall to face the coming darkness as one.
