2008 is coming to a close and it's time to reflect back on World of Warcraft and all of the happenings in this past year. David "Xerin" Piner takes us from the Sunwell to the Lich King on a journey through the major events of the last year in the game.

This left players burning through it only to find a roof where they had too few players, too little experience, or just no will power to advance further.
