Employers already search your Facebook before hiring you. With RealID, now they can search your epix.

Note: for most careers, more epix (more time invested) = less likely to get hired.

See note from the old forums ('Job Posting: World of Warcraft players need not apply').
This is what actually worries me the most to be honest. Will I have to stop playing or not use this feature when entering a very competitive job market?

I'm pretty sure most employers aren't going to be all that hip to what a realID even is.  Facebook is way more mainstream, the inner workings of WoW isn't.  Most folks know about WoW, but probably not the mechanics or infrastructure of the game.

If a company does sleuth that hard, you're probably applying for the CIA, and I'm pretty sure everyone has worse things on their 'life resume' than WoW for that. :p

Most employers put your name in the Facebook search box and the Google search box. Google will find RealID for them, regardless of hipness, I would think...

My impression is that your Real ID info is only available to people you've friended.

http://blue.mmo-champion.com/t/13525668570/patch-3-3-5-regional-release-information/

Ruby Sanctum will not be available immediately upon the release of 3.3.5.  This is because the US is getting the patch a week ahead of the other regions (because of something related to battle.net chat integration) and they don't want to be quite so unfair to the US vs. EU progression race.

The vote kick timer restriction is going away... except for players who use it often or abandon groups often.  (I'm not sure why abandoning groups often is tied into this; I would expect it to tie into the deserter debuff instead.)

There is a small download today.  It's not 3.3.5, and I'm not sure the build number even changed, but the item DB is slow just like it is on patch day (which I believe happens because everyone's client-side item cache gets invalidated).  Allow extra time before raids if possible.

mmo-champion expects 3.3.5 tomorrow, and is usually right about this stuff.  Ruby Sanctum won't be available for another week.  This patch breaks AVR, and adds battle.net chat.

The +25% buff is also expected tomorrow, judging purely by dates.

Depends on whether you believe "last Tuesday of the month" or "four weeks per stage."  Both rules have been consistent with the +10% through +20% buffs, but "four weeks per stage" predicts +25% tomorrow while "last Tuesday of the month" predicts June 29.

3.3.5 is indeed today.  The patch downloaded and installed in just four minutes for me, and was only 24MB (plus 2.5MB for the updater binary).  Between patch day, raid weekly day, and day two of the midsummer fire festival, this evening is going to be quite the exercise in triage.

ER is up, with all of the zippy performance you've come to expect on patch day.

How are you going to get loot lag in Dalaran, Mr. Anderson ... if you can't even authenticate?

Look like every 4 weeks is the winner. its 25%.
