News Roundup: Connected Accounts, Azeroth Choppers, Wowhead Guides, Tank Giveaway, Tweets

A new feature has appeared on battle.net, allowing players to connect their battle.net account to an X-Box Live account or a Playstation Network account. The page offers "legendary rewards and benefits" for doing so, but it remains unclear just exactly what those might be.
It seems likely that this may relate to the upcoming release of Diablo III: Reaper of Souls on console on August 19. It will release on PS3, PS4, XBox 360 and XBox One. Over a year ago, Blizzard Community Manager Vaeflare said in
a forum post
that "there are currently no plans to allow connectivity between PlayStation Network and Battle.net". Maybe this account connection signals a change to this policy going forwards?

2010/11/24 at 9:19 PM
Remember when we posted yesterday to let you know about our new
Personalized Quest Searches
Well we've published a little tweak to update it—you can now filter
any search you have completion data for, based on whether or not you've completed it!
That means you can sort out any of the following categories based on whether or not you've completed them:
(so you can sort by which ones you have at Exalted and which ones you don't)
There's a lot of potential here, and I'm really eager to see how you guys use it. Let us know!
