Welcome to your Wednesday Loading...

The 493rd edition of Loading... is brought to you by Pirates of the Burning Sea. Click the link and take a shot at one of the remaining PotBS beta keys.

Winners of the first batch of PotBS keys will be receiving their keys shortly.

But theres more....

We gave away dozens of keys to the Scions of Fate Close Beta Phase 1. Keep checking this link for your chance to grab a key in Phase 2 or 3.

Last, but certainly not least, I have a limited few Vanguard: Saga of Heroes beta keys to give away. That's right folks, where else can you get beta access to Pirates of the Burning Sea, Scions of Fate and Vanguard: Saga of Heroes? We aim to please and our aim is exceptional.

I guarantee that our loyal readership will be all over this like a hobo on a ham sandwich. So.... please don't be offended if I don't reply to everyone who asks for a key. If you win, I'll let you know. If you don't hear from me, then consider it a one e-mail stand and get on with your life. If you're planning on going Fatal Instinct on me then you came to the wrong place. We don't need any more crazy. We're all stocked up.

Do you want a Vanguard: Saga of Heroes Beta Key? Mail me.

Then visit our Vanguard community.

Super, Happy, Fun, Thanks to our resident rodeo clown and #1 Loading writer, Jeff Woleslagle for sitting in for me yesterday while I was taking one for the team at the dentist's office. Thanks Jeff! It's always a shame that I have to come back. Jeff spoils you with quality humour and insight that you aren't going to get from me. I promise.

Are there other games that you would like to have beta access to?

  • Dungeons and Dragons Online: Wiki Structure Updated
    "Ralsu sent me a description, but it was so full of links and jibber-jabber (Mr. T pities that fool) that I couldn't put it in the descriptive text section as it blew the whole Exclusive Content table out of whack. I'll get you Ralsu!!!! I'll get you!!!! In the meantime, check out the DDO Wiki and/or send Ralsu a naughty e-mail."
  • EverQuest 2: Guild Raid Guide
    "Guild raids are a great way to get together with your friends and throw down some fairly decent raid content. What are the raids you can get, how hard are they, and how do you beat them? Ten Ton Hammer has your guide."
  • Vanguard: Saga of Heroes - Necromancer Spell List
    "The quest to keep our spell lists updated continues with the necromancer. Check out all the deadly (and we mean that quite literally) spells this class has to offer from level 1 to 50."
  • World of Warcraft: Mage Guide Revamp
    "We've gone and revamped out entire Mage guide. In addition the recent updates, we've gone and updated our talents & skill listings, made the entire guide easier to navigate, and made sure that it's compatible with the release of the expansion!"
  • World of Warcraft: Playing A Beastmaster Hunter
    "Ten Ton Hammer has once again brought you a guide for one of the hunter talent trees - the Beastmaster. This oft-neglected tree can be quite useful when trying to level your hunter."

  • World of Warcraft: Exploring The Outlands Pocket Guide
    "With the Burning Crusade expansion less than a week away I thought it would be a good idea to pass on some exploration tips for those hearty explorer types that have the need to explore the whole new world as quickly as possible. Many players that I have talked to do not even want to start questing until they have mapped all of the Outlands and have an idea where everything is. While this is an admiral goal, it is a difficult one. For those not in it to find everything right away your lucky, these tips will still come in handy no matter the level you are when you explore an area."
