FusionFall + World of Warcraft + Pirates of the Burning Sea + Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning + Lord of the Rings Online + Age of Conan: Unchained Features, Guides, and more

  • It's new, it's shiny, and we'll tell you how to get it!

    In the latest World of Warcraft update, a whole new set of armor was introduced for each class. Seeing how many players are frantically searching for information on how to get this new set, we wrote the following guide:

    In patch 1.10 Blizzard implemented an upgrade to the class set items available in the late game instances. This change is to allow non-raiders to put time and effort in to gaining access to epic quality items without having to raid. While the items are not as good as raid epics they are a decent step up in power from the tier 0 set items.

    The quests for the Horde and the Alliance side are almost identical, as are the quests between the classes. The main difference is the main quest provider. For Horde the main NPC is Movkar who can be found in Thrall's Room in Orgrimmar, while the main Alliance NPC is Deliana who can be found in King Bronzebeard's room in Ironforge.

  • 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.

  • The official Age of Conan site has a new archetype preview. This time they're focusing on the Thief.

    Unconventional and devious fighters, characters in the Thief Archetype are those intent on causing maximum harm to their opponents through any means necessary.

    These classes are not the disciplined soldiers of the warrior archetype, but cunning and often vicious opponents that their enemies would be unfortunate to meet in one of the many dark corners of Hyboria.

  • More help for World of Warcraft's first 12 levels!

    Yesterday at WoW - TenTonHammer, we looked at the dwarf / gnome starting zone of Dun Morogh. Today it's only fair that we look at where orcs & trolls begin their journey: Durotar. This extensive guide describes the best way to work the 29 quests found in this level 1-12 starting region, and includes a touched-up map, some important tips for new adventurers, and even a little bit of lore!

    Foreman Thazz'ril, on the eastern end of Valley of Trials, needs you to whip some "Lazy Peons" into shape. You've probably seen these guys lounging around; complete this quest to get Thazzril's Pick before tackling the Burning Blade Medallion quest from Zureetha (upon turning in the "Vile Familiars" quest) so you'll only have to crawl through the "Burning Blade Coven" cave once. Take the northern track through the cave to go straight to Yarog Baneshadow and collect the medallion.

    Quests are fun, but backtracking isn't. Thinking of rolling an orc or troll alt in World of Warcraft? Just starting out? Let us streamline your early experience with the WoW @ TenTonHammer "Durotar" starting region guide!

  • The fastest 10 levels in World of Warcraft...

    Unfortunately, they're also the first 10 levels. For those of you eager to get out of the starting region and on to the rest of the game, we offer a new series of guides dedicated to the starting regions of Azeroth. The first offers a map and a walkthrough for the 26 quests found in Dun Morogh, the starting area for all gnomes and dwarves.

    You'll start your WoW career facing a dwarf named Sten Stoutarm, and he's offered you a pair of gloves in return for some wolf meat (Dwarven Outfitters). This one's fast and easy, as well as being a great way to become acquainted with your character's combat skills, so turn around and take out some wolves, any wolves will do. When you've met Sten's quota, head back to him to complete the quest, and accept two more: Coldridge Valley Mail Delivery and Glyphic Memorandum.

  • ABC News, "World of Warcraft is the new golf."
    I read it on the Interweb, so it must be true. ABC News as part of their PC Magazine section has posted an article on WoW becoming a channel to meet and network with business contacts.

    "Overheard at brunch: two tech entrepreneur types discussing World of Warcraft. "What server are you on? What guild? Yeah, me too. It's a good way to schmooze." Is that true? Has logging on to the world's most popular massively multiplayer online game replaced a few rounds on the links as the way to make the right business connections in our tech-driven culture?"
