  • Can you believe they've been asked 37 times?
    EverQuest Vault has posted the 37th edition of their Ask SoE Column. Combined with appropriate exercise, we're certain that reading the
    following will give you rock hard 6-pack abs in only minutes a day
    :

    "Part of the changes coming to spells and combat arts is to adjust how much damage the various classes do in relation to each other. Can you tell us how the different subclasses will rank in relative damage potential?"

  • Does your desk need new paper?
    New Guild Wars deskpaper (wallpaper for you miscreants who use that term) is available at the Official Site. Our attempts to confirm the following information with Michael Jackson's
    attorneys were rudely rebuffed:

    "Ha! It's deskpaper folks.. they don't write anything about deskpaper. If you need an explanation then you probably can't install it anyway."

    You can grab the Guild Wars Wallpaper (Deskpaper) at The Official Site.

  • PvP, no monthly fee and now rewards too.
    The folks at ArenaNET are working on some fancy new Player versus Player (PvP) rewards for Guild Wars. Andrew Lloyd Weber did not issue a denial that he may be writing a 6 hour
    musical version of Guild Wars after reading the following:

    "Our next major update will be the introduction of PvP Rewards.
    We know that many players right now are having difficulty unlocking items, runes and skills for use in PvP. On our private test servers, we have been testing a new reward system that lets you unlock items, runes, and skills for your pvp only characters through kills and victories in PvP. You'll unlock things faster if you are more successful, but we aren't implementing this system just for the elite players. Our goal is that every player will be able to make progress through normal play."

  • 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."

  • It's all about the levels.
    The TenTonHammer.com Guild Wars community team have updated the Guild Wars Experience Chart. They probably wrote this:

    "The experience table located in the TenTonHammer.com library has been updated to reflect recent game changes. Experience required for additional skill points now caps out at 20k, and this is now noted. If you are curious about the amount of experience needed for each skill point before it reaches the cap, take a look at the table."

  • Two million subscribers and one interview.
    WorldofWar.net has an interview with the Blizzard development and it's all about, you guessed it, World of Warcraft. They may have written this:

    "Are there any plans at Blizzard to create more individual avatar styles than there are available now?  Could changes like new hairstyles, tattoos, scarring or equipment dye be worked into the current art and code?"

  • Shadowfang Keep Unplugged.
    Our very own World of Warcraft team has produced a guide to Shadowfang Keep. They mentioned that they wrote this:

    "Being a low level and small instance tactics are fairly easy to master in Shadowfang Keep.

    At the beginning of the instance, go in to the room on the right of the entrance as there is no way to raise the gates, don’t bother trying. The monsters here are a low level and should be fairly easy to pull and kill. Continue up the stairs and down the passage to a locked door. If there’s a rogue in your party he can pick it, if not you’ll have to let out the prisoners that are down the stars to the left of the room you are in. Not sure why they are locked up if the have keys, but there you go. To release the prisoners pull the levers by their cell. Through the door is the courtyard."

  • The theme you have all been waiting for.
    A World of Warcreaft XP theme has been created by Stardock. We think that they wrote this:

    "Now you can enjoy the look and feel of World of Warcraft even when log out of the game, thanks to the specially designed World of Warcraft Windows XP desktop theme pack created by Stardock. Using Stardock's Object Desktop technology, the Worldof Warcraft theme pack changes your title bars, Start menu, icons, push buttons, borders, and much more to mirror the user interface from the game."
