  • TenTonHammer looks at early loot in The Burning Crusade

    Interested in what kind of loot you can get in the first few days of the Burning Crusades release? Want to know where to find it? Check it all out here!

    As mentioned in many places previously, the biggest change that you will see when going to BC loot is the insane stamina bonuses. I have seen a +60 stamina green item, and +40ish isn't that rare either! There are several items that you will be trading in very quickly from your tier 1 and 2 sets. There are even many blues from the old 5 man instances that could be replaced quickly with greens!

  • Rogue Guide Updated

    Our Rogue guide has gotten a massive update, both in its organization and its information. We've gone through and made sure our massive amount of information is easy accessible. Not only that, but we've overhauled our Rogue getting started guide with a ton of new information!

    "So in summary, the Rogue class is your fast attacking high damage output class with very low-defense. Their damage isn't limited to mana, like a Mage, which is an obvious advantage. Simple "white damage" (normal attacks) from a Rogue can be deadly by itself!"

  • Top of the Totem Pole – Scorekeeping in WoW

    Scorekeeping has come a long way from the numerical high scores of arcade games in the past. This article takes a look at how players can prove that they are the best in today's MMORPGs, such as WoW.

    “When I think of scoreboarding, my first thought is of arcade games--you know, those high scores at the end that allowed you to put in your initials so that everyone who came to play the game after you left could see just how great DJW or ADI was. Gaming has come a long way since those Pacman days in the local pool hall.”

  • TenTonHammer's First Look at "The Burning Crusade: The Underbog"

    Today I continue our first look at the upcoming World of Warcraft expansion, The Burning Crusade. Once again I am focusing on the new instance in the game since small group adventures are one of my favorite things about MMOs. So far I have covered the Hellfire Ramparts and the Blood Furnace in the Hellfire Citadel and the Slave Pens in the Coilfang Reservoir. Today I once again head to Coilfang Reservoir in Zangarmarsh, but this time to visit the Underbog. The Underbog is the second of the four instance in Coilfang Reservoir in Zangarmarsh.

    The Fen Rays were very cool because they had an ability called terror. It worked almost exactly like fear, except you ran away faster than a fun (seemed like epic mounted speed) and it seemed like it was not avoidable. I tried trinkets and abilities to avoid and negate fear and they did not work. This got really fun since the first one terrored one of the group into a second, which did it into a third. This left us scrambling to survive having 1-3 members running at all times. The lesson here: remember to pull far back. In this case pull back further than normal since you can run quite far at that speed.

  • Hands On Impressions of Burning Crusade

    Pro-G has posted their hands on impressions of the Burning Crusades. Keep reading to see what they think of the upcoming expansion to World of Warcraft.

    The Burning Crusade presents an interesting conundrum for World of Warcraft players: drop your existing high level character for the allure of starting one of two new races, or keep on with your uber-equipped killing machine and brave the shattered realm of Outland.

    So far, most beta players have opted for the high level rewards of Outland over starting a new character. But this isn't to the detriment of TBC's two new races, the manga-esque Blood Elves and the big blue aliens the Draenei - both have aspects that have drawn concern from the typically vocal WoW fan base, but overall are shaping up nicely.

  • FiringSquad Previews The Burning Crusade

    FiringSquad.com has posted a preview of the upcoming World of Warcraft expansion, The Burning Crusade.

    The Blood Elves are the new Horde race, Blizzard’s answer to the calls for attractive models and Paladins for the Horde. Continuing the story from WarCraft III, the Blood Elves have split from the Alliance by making common cause with Illidan. Their lands and Silvermoon, their city, lay in ruins. The passage of the Scourge has quite literally left a mark on what were once the beautiful lands of the elves.

  • TenTonHammer's First Look at "The Burning Crusade: The Slave Pens"

    Today I continue our look at the upcoming World of Warcraft expansion, The Burning Crusade. The part I have been the most interested in are the new instances, as featured in my last few articles that covered the first two instances in the Hellfire Citadel. Having leveled my Undead priest to 62 I headed into the marsh to explore. In today's article I will look at some more of the new instances. Over the last little bit I have ventured into the Coilfang Reservoir in the Zangarmarsh. In what now seems the standard, the location houses another four brand new instances. The instances range from 2 low level ones, a max level 70 one and a raid.
