  • Oh those busy little beavers! There is a new dev preview of Burning Crusade at the official site.

    Despite the myriad terrors that lie within, adventurers are still drawn to Karazhan - tempted by rumors of unspeakable secrets that may be found
    within the tower's arcane libraries. It is said that the vast, magical halls house the powerful spellbooks of Medivh himself.

    Only one thing is certain when visiting the dreaded tower of Karazhan...

    ...you may never find your way out.

    The decrepit tower of Karazhan once housed one of the greatest powers Azeroth has ever known: the sorcerer Medivh. Within its halls and corridors, he summoned all manner of otherworldly beings, researching magics no other would dare touch. Karazhan now stands abandoned; with its master gone, the monstrous
    things and untamed powers have grown unchecked, waiting to pounce on whoever is brave or foolish enough to enter its halls. Forge a group of ten stalwart adventurers and journey to the wasted land between Duskwood and the Swamp of Sorrows known as Deadwind Pass, where the mystical tower lies. Only the strongest need apply: only those who have achieved level 70 are skilled enough to face what lies within. Prepare for:

    * Boss encounters scripted to unveil the mysteries of Karazhan and challenge your skill as a team;
    * Dozens of new items from the vaults and experiments within the tower;
    * Brand new monsters, the likes of which Azeroth has never seen;
    * And much more!

    *Squeals* I wish they'd hurry up and release the thing! I want to play!

    There's nothing sexier than our World of Warcraft site!

  • What happens when you get so big that your servers become a muck of stinky mud where nobody has a good connection and it's a miserable mess? Well you open new servers and you say "Ok I'll let you move!". This is what Blizzard is doing.

    Select Character Transfers to New Realm! - Eyonix on 1/26/06
    We will be opening character transfers for the 8 realms listed below tomorrow, Thursday, January 26 at 3:00 AM. Characters on these realms will be able to transfer to a new PvP realm, Mug'thol. This round of transfers will be open Monday through Friday from 3:00 AM to 3:00 PM PST until Wednesday, February 1 at 3:00 PM PST. Please be aware that until the transfer window is closed, standard character creation will be unavailable for Mug'thol.

    Archimonde
    Mannoroth
    Warsong
    Bleeding Hollow
    Skullcrusher
    Azgalor
    Burning Blade
    Burning Legion

    Character transfers are available Monday thru Friday from 3AM to 3PM.

    Interesting to see Skullcrusher back on the list. Our guild of over one-hundred just moved from there. I wonder if this is going to help actually. The room left after the mass vacate just fills up faster than you can push sand into an ant hole. Are there any permanent solutions? Let me know!

    In the meantime you can do three things with us -

  • Batwing crunchies? Um...

    We, like you, don't put much thought into the tasty delicacies our characters devour after a tough fight. Nevermind that (arguably) the best dish in World of Warcraft contains more than a snort o' "goblin rocket fuel." And no, Booty Bay revelers, we're not talking about the "volatile rum" they serve down there.

    But for those of you that want an inside look at the horrors of the World of Warcraft "Cooking" profession, we offer a new guide that Upton Sinclair would be proud of.

    If you can stomach it, check out our Cooking Guide. You've been warned!

    (No mechanical war-chickens were harmed in the creation of this guide.)

  • Jump start your WoW secondary skills.

    Maybe you thought the "Cooking" and "Fishing" professions in World of Warcraft are gimp, too complex, too time-consuming, too boring, or too expensive to get into. Not so. At least, not anymore.

    We have a couple secrets to share with you, secrets that will catapult your skills from 1 to 150 in both the Cooking and Fishing professions for a handful of silver, and in less time than it takes to watch another late-night "B" movie. It's not an exploit, it won't get you banned. It's just a taste of the old-school massively-multiplayer "grind smarter, not harder" approach.

    Two hours, no gold, no auction house transactions, 300 skill points.

    Interested? Check out Ten Ton Hammer's Two Hours to 150: Cooking & Fishing guide on our World of Warcraft Community Site.

  • I had noticed that we didn't get any posts.This leads me to believe that either you're unsure of what we are offering, or that you're maybe a little cluck cluck chicken.

  • The Official site has updated information on the Cenarion Circle Reputation Rewards and Class Quest Rewards

    At last, the long watch has ended - the hero has risen, to mend that which was broken, to unite those who were divided. But the true test is yet to come. When the gates of Ahn'Qiraj open, will the mortal races stand united once again and face the onrushing terror or will they fade silently into the darkness that has risen once again in the distant lands of Silithus?

  • Here it is, although I wouldn't necessarily call it a guide page. We'll use the word guide as it's meant to be termed. It gives you hints on where you should go as a high level. What you should do. There are no walkthroughs here so don't get excited before you leave the gate.

  • In a Press Release today, it has been stated that WoW has a little bit of a discrimination problem. Who is being discriminated against? People of Asian descent primarily. The fear that they are "Chinese Gold Farmers" has given the English speaking servers a bad name.

    There is a common belief among English speaking players in World of Warcraft that most non English speaking players are gold farmers. This is a type of player who is only playing the game to profit, not for the “love of the game.” Gold Farmers are largely despised by players who feel they take away a certain purity of the game.

    To combat gold farmers, players are requesting anybody who wants to join a group to type one or two lines of English. If the sentences or grammar are not proper English these players are rejected from joining this group. This is what is creating the backlash among non-English speaking players with feel they are being discriminated against based on their language.

    There is an article on Kotaku (thanks mmorpgdot) about this issue. I'm not going to say whether I agree with it or not, but I'd love for you to Tell Me! what you think about the whole ordeal.
