Cataclysm Class Previews: Warlock Changes

As I’m sure you’ve heard, starting a couple of days ago we’ve had a deluge of Cataclysm information, most noticeably the class previews, and of course one of these was all about Warlocks (MMO-Champion post). I’m not going to do my own in-depth review of the information because I don’t really feel qualified, since I haven’t actually played WoW in months, but you can go here for Dominic Hobbs’ analysis on, which I found to be pretty comprehensive. You may also like to refer to my Blizzcon post about Warlock changes from August of last year.

With that said, I will make a few comments, so let’s have a look!

The Weekly Warlock Wind-Up: Wait, it’s Monday already?

If you’ve been as busy with your spring cleaning this past weekend as I have, you’re probably hoping for a slightly easier puzzle this week, especially if it’s gone 17:00 and you’ve only just realised it’s Monday… So here we go!

For each of the following words, find another word beginning with ‘D’ which has an opposite meaning to the given word. What are they?

  • Admission
  • Tactlessness
  • Carelessness

Good luck!

Public Service Announcement – Gotcha!

So for those of you who didn’t quite realise it (but bless you for actually working it out), yes my newly announced feature was an April Fool’s joke.

I mean, getting you all to do my homework for me is a nice thought, but I don’t think people would find it either moral or interesting. The fact that I threatened you with History essays about Britain in the 1800s should have given it away! And if you hovered your mouse over the picture of the graph, you’d have seen its revealing caption, too.

“Good luck, and remember to show your working!”


P.S. Puzzle answers for the feature which does exist will be up this afternoon.

The Weekly Warlock Workout

Back in October 2009, I launched (with this post) what has since become one of my blog’s most popular features – my weekly puzzle question, the Weekly Warlock Wind-Up. Since so many people seem to enjoy my puzzles, I have decided to expand upon this success with the introduction of another exciting weekly feature – the Weekly Warlock Workout!

This means that every Thursday I will be posting an item of my homework or coursework to the blog. Readers will then have until Sunday evening to work out the answers to the questions and post them in a comment, and I will announce the correct solution just as soon as I receive the marked piece back from my tutors! Categories of question will include:

  • History essays (Stalinist Russia, Britain 1815 – 1860)
  • Maths Mechanics (forces, momentum, velocity-time graphs, equations of motion, pulleys)
  • Core Mathematics (trigonometrical equations, integration, differentiation, radians, logarithms, binomial expansion)
  • ICT coursework (ICT and Society, ICT and Organisations, Databases)
  • Physics (electricity, waves, mechanics, quantum phenomena)

For my very first Workout, I’ve decided to give you something fairly easy, with a spot of integration:

Good luck, and remember to show your working!
