Ten Ton Hammer Exclusives: The Week in Review

Posted Fri, Jan 30, 2009 by Sardu

As the first month of 2009 winds to a close, it seems like an opportune time to draw some special attention to all the hard work the members of our World of Warcraft community team have put in so far this year. It’s no easy feat to pull together a complete set of guides for each class in the game on a weekly basis, but that’s exactly what they’ve done. I thoroughly suggest you do yourself a favor check out this week’s round of exclusive WoW guides, highlighting talent selection.

Below, you’ll find handy links to not only the guides, but all the exclusive content from Ten Ton Hammer for the week ending January 30th!

This week’s hot content:

Exclusive Runes of Magic Beta Interview - The free-to-play marketplace has really emerged out of its cocoon in the last year. For those of you that have been reading Ten Ton Hammer’s F2P Top Ten List, this becomes readily apparent as the majority of the games on that list were released in late 2007, 2008, or are slated for the early part of 2009. One of the most prominent of these games (and holding the #1 spot on our Top Ten list) is Runes of Magic. We recently had an opportunity to submit a number of questions to the RoM developers, and we graciously jumped at the chance.

Forever Fantasy: The Forgotten Realms MMOG Dream - For anyone that's passionate about a hobby or activity, speculating about its future is just a natural part of being a fan. There has been a lot of discussion this year about which intellectual properties would have the makings of a top contender for the belt in today’s online game market. In this week’s Forever Fantasy column, Dalmarus steps up to argue why his choice is the granddaddy of them all.
