Your Heavy
Metal Questions Answered!

Heavy Metal is coming, and you
had better be ready. Beginning Tuesday, November 18th, this second Live
Event will hit the servers with a vengeance. Be ready to log in daily
to complete the required task of the day, and earn points towards the
special event rewards. Why should you care about these prizes? Take a
look at these Level 2 Reward Cloaks:

Now tell me that you don't want one of those bad boys on your back!
They are both pretty awesome,
but I'm seriously considering converting to Destruction-ism for the
reptile skin version. The other two rewards are a shiny Trophy, or the
chance to play a Knight of the Blazing Sun or Blackguard one week
early. That early class unlock is only for the dedicated players that
log in every day during the event. Any other questions you have are
likely answered in the href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/49429" target="_blank">Grab Bag
#5 that
Mythic published this past week.

style="font-weight: bold;">Meanwhile,
on the Other Side of the Ocean...

This week Mythic Entertainment announced a style="color: rgb(238, 232, 170);"
href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/49358" target="_blank">partnership
with Hangame,
that will bring the WAR to Korea. Everyone knows the Asian MMOG market
is huge, so this move can only mean good things for the game we love.
In Europe, GOA brought word that players on their servers would have
access to href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/49212" target="_blank">free
character and guild transfers soon, to help balance
out the population. The EU site also saw the birth of their very own
href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/49431" target="_blank">Realm
War site, which will give players access to the same Character,
Guild and Server stats that North American users have had all along.

style="font-weight: bold;">FAN-tastic Entertainment

There were plenty of player-made entertainment contributions this week.
href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/49147" target="_blank">The WARP
09: The Orc Behind the Mask Podcast made its way onto the
scene with talk of Witching Night experiences, Tome unlocks and RvR
tips galore. An interactive comic and fan fiction story follows a surly
Dwarf and grumpy Witch Hunter into the style="color: rgb(238, 232, 170);"
href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/49430" target="_blank">Marshes
of Madness. The href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/49262" target="_blank">Warpath
Podcast #6: For the Emperor! talk about the past Live Event and the
to come, and discuss the new Knight of the Burning Sun class.

The Herald announced the href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/49211" target="_blank">winners
of the official Halloween contest,
showcasing photos of some amazing costumes and pumpkin carvings.
Congratulations to those who won a style="color: rgb(238, 232, 170);"
target="_blank">WAR prize pack from Mythic!

style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);"> style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);"> style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">Patches?
Yes We Want Some Stinkin' Patches!

The Warhammer Online servers got their continuing doses of patches
href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/49207" target="_blank">Monday,
href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/49209" target="_blank">Tuesday,
href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/49354" target="_blank">Wednesday
and href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/49414" target="_blank">Friday.
Renown merchants were added to
the cities in the main merchant areas. No more running all the way out
to the Guild Taverns is necessary (although, I found the Devastator
shoulder piece was not up for
sale outside). Rally Masters have been assigned to all war camps; now
they could just recruit a few more Flightmasters. Certain over-used
Scenarios were adjusted to not pop as often, hoping to add a bit more
variety to the Renown point grind. Electromagnet and Chaotic Rift were
nerfed, making Engineers and Magus' shed a few tears. The new Test
server href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/49261" target="_blank">wasn't
left out of the fun, as the class abilities re-write
continued on.

It's My

If you're reading this Monday,
then have one on me. It's my Birthday, and I'm celebrating by
out-leveling my friends while they are trapped in their offices. Hurray
for those of us that work at home! My first gift came from my good
friend Leahme of style="font-style: italic;">Thorgrim's Exiles
on the Monolith
server (formerly known as
href="http://www.tentonhammer.com/node/46663" target="_blank">Calamitous
before the character transfers). She made the awesome banner that now
headlines this weekly feature. Did you forget to send me a present?
I'll let it go
this time if you forward some screenshots, fan
art, fiction and other exciting Warhammer Online links to style="color: rgb(238, 232, 170);" href="mailto:[email protected]">[email protected] style="color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">.

of the Week

style="border: 0px solid ; width: 200px;">

Directly from Grab Bag
#5 comes this week's Tip of the Week. Your backpack can sort items
according to certain classifications, to make the giant mass of
incoming loot
look a lot more organized. By clicking the arrow on the right side of
the backpack window, you can choose which type of items will drop in
that bag. The choices are: Weapons, Armor, Potions, Crafting
(Cultivating, Apothecary, Talismans or Salvaging), Misc (Accessory,
Dye, Talisman or Trophy),
(Currently Usable, Will be Usable, Never usable) and Rarity.

He's back! Coyote has returned
with another edition of his tongue-in-cheek WAR guides, style="color: rgb(238, 232, 170);"

Ultimate Guide
to WAR Part 3 - Empire vs Chaos.  It's always fun to see just
how many people he can offend, before they fall over laughing, of
course. Let's tally up the carnage:

1. Bright Wizard - "He dresses like
a signal flare."

2. Warrior Priest - "
style="font-style: italic; color: rgb(255, 255, 255);">Nothing says
"believe in the peace and mercy of our lord" like getting smashed in
the kisser with a big frickin' hammer."

3. Witch Hunter - style="font-style: italic;">"The Witch Hunter is only a rebel flag and
a few snake dances away from being exiled to Alabama."

4. Knight of the Blazing Sun -

is to hit them hard and hit them fast, or at least get
them to remember painful memories of their days as Altar boys of

5. Chosen - style="font-style: italic;">"Unfortunately, most of that size,
durability, and strength comes in the
form of cancerous tumors that make it REALLY hard to pee."

6. Magus - style="font-style: italic;">"Voldemort was TOTALLY a Magus."

7. Zealot - style="font-style: italic;">"The Zealot is the stalker ex-girl friend
of the Raven God who refuses
to admit that they broke up and have agreed to start seeing other

8. Marauder - style="font-style: italic;">"They can turn their arms into tentacles
straight out of a weird Japanese anime porn."
