Standing Stone Games made the news twice today.

Today, Dungeons and Dragons Online opened up their Lamannia test server to give players their first hands-on look at the new alchemist class, class changes, and other iterations on current content. First publicly discussed at GenCon last August, this complex class is set to be a support role, using various chemical mixtures to harry its foes or assist its allies in the form of thrown vials.
In 8.3, WoW players will have to wrestle with the usual class changes as they gear up to tackle more content. This expansion unlike the previous 8.2 doesn’t really add any new landscape to visit, but rather does a sweeping set of changes to existing areas in time with the story of players heading to Ny’alotha, the Waking City, for a new 12-boss raid.
