10-Dec-2010 Legendary Drops from the Grand Master Tailors at J!NX
It's that time of year again, when the days get shorter and body heat becomes a valuable commodity. While many mammals will simply find a nice, dry cave and bunker down to sleep off the winter months, the wi-fi connection in most of those locations is terrible. Instead, as the trees begin to drop their leaves, we humans pile on the layers and use the cold as an excuse to spend more time basking in the warm glow of our monitors. In an attempt to make you look amazing in said layers, and in celebration of the World of Warcraft: Cataclysm release, J!NX is unleashing a slew of new designs. Head over to J!NX to check out the line, which consists of six new t-shirt designs, custom Horde and Alliance sweatshirts and polos, and a murloc zip-up hoodie.

The undead armies of the Lich King have been vanquished, and the campaign in Northrend has come to an end.

As the world teeters on the brink of destruction, champions of the Alliance and Horde must embark on a quest that will take them from the World Tree to the bottom of the Great Sea to the elemental planes themselves, looking for a way to bring an end to Deathwing's reign of ruin.
