2.2 PTR Summary
Latest PTR Stuff:
Because of the very high level of interest in pre-made characters for the PTR they copy systems is very busy, the queues are very long and may take several days before your character is available. We are aware of this and the only solution is to be patient.
If you get an error when trying to copy a pre-made it is because the queue is full and not taking more requests, try again later.
Pre-made gear and abilities
We are aware that some pre-made characters are missing abilities, or have abilities that they should not. We do not intend to make changes to the pre-made characters at this time in the test phase.
The authentication server was updated with account information at the beginning of last week. If you have changed your password since the update it will not work on the PTR, you may be able to use an old password on the PTR but there is no guarantee that it will work.

World of Warcraft comic announced
When a human is found unconscious on the shores of Kalimdor, with no memory of who he is or how he arrived there, how will he survive? Enslaved by an Orc Shaman, he must fight for survival against members of both the Alliance and the Horde. Will he strike the uneasy balance with the other races he'll need to find the secrets of his past?
The plot sounds really dumb (wait a minute, Orcs enslaving another race? Didn't they just fight some huge war just so no one would have to be enslaved again?), but then again the concept art looks pretty neat. Also, one of the covers has the human with a Thunderfury, so that's gotta count for something.
Besides, the writer is Walt Simonson and he was the guy who made Beta Ray Bill, and who doesn't like Beta Ray Bill?
