  • Every time I see a new piece of concept art from this game, it takes my breath away. I don't know how true it will be to the story or how far they can go with it.. but the visuals, they just leave me speechless.

    With that said, there is new lore today from the Official Lord of the Rings Online site.

    This watch-tower, its name long-forgotten, once overlooked the eastern reaches of Fornost of which little now remains. Though crumbling and decrepit, it still stands as a grand testament to the architects of Arnor, a monument both carved from the living stone upon which it rests and built from stone blocks and mortar. The ruined tower yet watches over the eastern gate of Fornost, which still stands amidst crumbling walls, bearing the charge of the Seven Stars, though the courtyard beyond has become home to cursed shades, tainted by failure and betrayal.

    Go read the rest and see what I mean about the art.

  • Dun dun DUN! Blizzard bannage.

    According to the World of Warcraft community site, Blizzard's banned 5,400 accounts and suspended 10,700 more since patch 1.10 went live the week before last. The reason? Widespread looting and violence caused by the Blizzard's April Fools' Day jokes? Nope.

    Many account closures come as the direct result of tips reported to our GMs in game or emailed to [email protected] by legitimate World of Warcraft players. If you suspect that a World of Warcraft player is using an illegal third-party program to farm gold or items, or is otherwise violating our Terms of Use, please report the suspected infraction via one of the means listed above. All reports will be investigated, and those that prove false will not result in corrective action.

    Razor (over at Warcry) believes this will only result in 5,400 more copies of WoW being purchased. If he's right, what a deliciously Machiavellian marketing ploy.

  • Will Mac gamers have to go to BootCamp?

    With the advent of BootCamp and the intel Mac, Mac users can play games designed for Windows XP. Blizzard, who released Windows and Mac versions of World of Warcraft in the same box, welcomes the technology, but says the company will continue to develop for native Mac users.

    Blizzard says in its General FAQ and its Technology FAQ specifically for World of Warcraft that an Intel Mac equipped with Boot Camp and Windows XP is indeed capable of working with World of Warcraft’s Windows version, but cautions that Boot Camp is beta software, and said that it won’t offer technical support for the software.

    As to Blizzard’s future on the Mac platform, the company added, “We have a recognized track record of native Mac OS support, and we have no plans to break with that tradition. We understand that our Mac player base prefers native software whenever possible, and our cross-platform development practice addresses that.”

  • Is 1.10 fixed? No? Let's talk 1.11!

    Blizzard is dropping hints about what's in store for World of Warcraft patch 1.11. Apparently it's the mage's turn for an overhaul - the devs hope to provide interesting talent tree choices (cool!) and decrease their downtime (um... downtime? in World of Warcraft? I must be old-school.)

    Anyway, we'll stop waffling now and get to the point: Blizzard has provided first details on the forthcoming 1.11 patch for WoW. What's really only a sneak peek at plans for the update reminds us that it's the Mage that's the World of Warcraft character class receiving an overhaul this time around, talents undergoing a revamp and the developer looking at improvements which "include easing a mage's downtime between fights and opening some new, interesting talent builds through changes to all the mage's talent trees."

    CVG has the scoop on the 1.11 changes, check 'em out!

    And for all your other World of Warcraft info-tainment needs, we suggest the WoW at TenTonHammer community site. It's that good.

  • Er, what I meant to say was the Watching Stone. It's a new bestiary update for you today.

    Statues throughout Middle-earth are not always what they seem. The very stone of some statues hold the trapped spirit of malice within, crafted by the Dark Lord long ago with skilled workmanship and dark ritual. These ominous statues act as sentries and alarms within the realm of Angmar and throughout the lands corrupted by the shadow. Within many of the ruins throughout Eriador and Arnor, in lands once controlled by the darkness of Mordor's reach, these watchers remain, ever-vigilant even after centuries of abandonment.

    Read it all here.

  • The official Chronicles of Spellborn site has a detailed explanation of character statistics.

    Attributes
    The basis of the characters statistics are the three main attributes being Body, Mind and Focus. These main attributes are linked to the class archetypes. Warriors have body as basic attribute, rogues have the focus attribute and casters have the mind attribute.

    This is definately a good read if you're going to play the game.

  • We have lots of lovin for your eyes! If you love Warhammer you're going to love these shots.

    FAIRFAX, VA – April 6, 2006 - Mythic Entertainment(R), a developer and
    publisher of critically-acclaimed massively-multiplayer online role-playing
    games (MMORPG’s), today released assets from their upcoming MMORPG
    “Warhammer(R) Online: Age of Reckoning(TM)” (WAR), including screenshots,
    concept art, character renders, maps and logos. Scheduled for release in
    2007 on the PC, “WAR” is based on Games Workshop’s epic Warhammer fantasy
    world, and features an innovative next-generation Realm vs. Realm(TM) (RvR)
    combat system.

    The latest “Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning” assets offer a preview of
    two of the MMORPG’s six playable races - the Dwarfs and the Greenskins (Orcs
    and Goblins) - and their territories. Mortal enemies, the Dwarfs and
    Greenskins are locked in perpetual conflict in a world where war is truly
    everywhere.

    The screenshots show off “WAR’s” Dwarfs and Greenskins in various levels of
    armor, playable zones including Ekrund, Bloodhorn and the Marshes of
    Madness, plus a few monsters like the river troll. “WAR” character models,
    zone maps, architecture and siege weapons are highlighted in the concept art
    and renders.

    See the shots here.
