    Blackrock (PvP) -> Bloodscalp (PvP)

    Deathwing (PvP) -> Stormscale (PvP)

  • PSP Emulation for WoW Has to Wait, Literally
    Portable VNP is a little app which allows you to remotely use your desktop Macintosh on your PlayStation Portable (PSP). PSP + VNP + WoW = it was inevitable someone would try! Gameplay was, however, sluggish...

    "It is way too slow at about 1 - 1/2 fps. You really can't do anything."

  • Ha! Check out the URL that you go to for this...they spelled Rogue as "Rouge". Priceless.
    Ogaming has posted a World of Warcraft Rogue guide. They sold you some gold and then they wrote this:

    "Rogues are damage-dealers, and that is their group role. You are in a group solely to take down single mobs and provide some limited crowd control (as well as pick locked chests and boxes). Rogues have the fastest (and arguably the most exciting) combat pace the game has to offer. Rogues attack the fastest because they are dual wielders and always use fast-swinging weapons (1-handed swords and maces and daggers). Rogues have to be versatile, patient and very articulate."

  • It's a battle and we've got a plan. Let's call it a Battle Plan.
    Shane Dabiri, the lead producer of World of Warcraft has posted a Battle Plan. We crawled through the trenches on our bellies to discover that he maybe, just maybe wrote this:

    "It has been over six months since World of Warcraft launched in North America, and we have seen much growth during that time. Just prior to launching in China last week, World of Warcraft had achieved a subscriber base of more than 2 million players worldwide. Thousands of new players around the world are joining the adventures in Azeroth each day, and the early signs from China are showing that World of Warcraft is proving to be very popular with players there as well."
