World of Warcraft + The Chronicles of Spellborn Features, Guides, and more

  • Guide Covers All Nine Classes

    With nine unique classes in World of Warcraft it can become hard to choose the right one for you. That's why we've gone through our Classes Guide and updated it with even more helpful information on the various classes within World of Warcraft. Don't forget to stop by our individual class guides for your favorite class! They provide even more specific information about each class within World of Warcraft.

    "There are nine classes within World of Warcraft. Each class represents a very unique gameplay style. For instance, Warriors get toe to toe with their enemies while Mages stand far away and sling devastating spells. Each class has its own feel and sometimes you'll have to play through several classes to pick what you want."

  • ZOMG... Kenny got pwned!

    Comedy Central commercials revealed (and the WoW official site confirmed) that South Park will open the second half of its 10th season with a stab at World of Warcraft on Wed, Oct. 4th at 10pm (US Eastern and Pacific time):

    In Comedy Central's teaser commercials for the first of a new batch of South Park episodes, the series' four main characters--elementary school kids Stan, Kyle, Cartman, and Kenny--gaze slack-jawed at computer screens, morbidly obese and riddled with zits. While the portrayal is a bit of a caricature of the typical massively multiplayer online role-playing game addict, it doesn't take a genius to guess that the show is turning its gaze toward the genre and its current standard-bearer, World of Warcraft.

    Make love, not Warcraft in South Park, and Gamespot has the scoop.

  • Planting a Seed

    This week's comment content editorial is about the recent failure of a promising upstart MMO known as Seed. Seed was an open-ended roleplaying game that allowed players use the environment to do whatever they wanted, from politics to trading. Recently,
    Runestone Game Development (the creator of Seed) filed for bankruptcy and announces that Seed will be permanently closed. This begs to question, is there room in this industry for a non-combat orientated MMO? Our very own Aureal answers that question in this week's editorial: Planting a Seed.

    "Conflict is the key to a good story and continuing conflict will keep a reader turning page after page to see what happens. In a game, the player is central to the plot; conflict is either resolved or ignited by their actions. This keeps the player sitting at his or her desk, continuing to finish that quest or vanquish that enemy."

  • WoW Ten Ton Hammer's Guide to Blackwing Lair Updated

    We've updated our Blackwing Lair guide to include even more information then before. We've gathered some of the most helpful hints that make the instance a little easier either on you or your raid. Not only that, but we've included some alternative strategies for some of the bosses within this vast fortress.

    "Always bring along any extra consumables that you have. Even the lowest of buff/heal potions can be helpful within Blackwing Lair. Bandages are also a must. While they are not often used, for encounters like Firemaw they are life savers."

  • WoW Ten Ton Hammer's Guide to Instances Updated

    Wondering what that "instance" thing you hear about all the time is? Do you have some quests for the Deadmines but no clue what the Deadmines is? Well look no further! We've updated our Instance Guide with more information then ever on these unique dungeons that provide a separate area of the world just for you and your group.

    "Instances are personal copies of the game world designed for 5 to 40 players (depending on the encounter). Groups or raids can enter special portals to be taken to a separate copy of that dungeon/area that is only available to that group/raid. Instance automatically place people in their proper instance, making it impossible for anyone outside of a group/raid to enter their instance. They are instead given a copy of their own, just for their group/raid."

  • WoW Ten Ton Hammer's Guide to Naxxramas

    Our Naxxramas guide has now been completed with skills and tactics for all fifteen bosses. From Anub'Rekhan to Kel'Thuzad, we have every boss within this dread citadel covered. Never fear within this dread citadel no more, as Ten Ton Hammer has all the information you need to slay the Scourge and claim victory for Azeroth!

    "Kel'Thuzad is the last boss within Naxxramas. You'd have to have slain every boss before Kel'Thuzad to even step foot within his chambers. He's the same Necromancer from the RTS games and is just as formidable. Except this time you don't have Jaina Proudmoore or any of the other heroes standing beside you. Only those who have plenty of Frost Resistance and gear from within Naxxramas dare even attempt to
    do battle with Kel'Thuzad."

  • What players will see after they leave the starting city and begin to explore Spellborn International's gameworld

    RPG Vault has posted their second look at The Chronicles of Spellborn. This look gives us a glimpse of what lies beyond the starting city.

    With the current target being to launch in the fourth quarter of this year, closed beta testing has been under way for some months, during which the team has been working to raise the title's visibility. As a result, we've learned a fair bit about it during this period. For instance, we can readily discern from the available visuals that the art direction is imaginative and stylish, and we also know the graphics will be delivered to our screens by the Unreal technology. In addition, we have learned some intriguing things about the design philosophy, one being the unconventional notion that a player's strength in battle is determined by the skill with which a given weapon is used, not its inherent numerical characteristics. Of course, we're eager to know more about these and other key elements of this intriguing endeavor.

  • A Seasoned Player's Look at The Burning Crusade

    With the release of the first expansion for World of Warcraft just months away, many vocal players are stepping up to voice their opinions about the game. We've got in touch with one of these very players who will be affected by upcoming changes to the raiding scene. We've sat down and talked with an extremely seasoned player, DarkFact
    of the Blackhand server, on this very subject.

    "Xerin: Blood Elves, Draenei, Shaman/Paladin mixup, etc. How do you think the new skills and classes for the two factions will help or hurt raiding?

    DarkFact: I think it'll make the raiding game more balanced overall and make content easier to make since they don't have to balance it for both Horde and Alliance. They will make the raids that much powerful but you will need to decide how many of each you're bringing and why, what buffs to apply, etc, so in a way, you'll have to think more."
