  • You know you watch too many home renovation shows when...

    Another month come and gone and it can only mean one thing, another interview! For all of you regular WoW @ TenTonHammer readers out there, we have a surprise for you! No longer will you see the bickering between Hardcore Raiders and Casuals, but instead, WOW gamers who love the environment that Blizzard has given them, and want to improve it.

    These are the gamers who love to watch home renovations shows on Sunday night television, then apply it to WOW. Some of the things to expect are Guild Housing, New Cities, Tattoo and Hair Parlor, and more! Take a look at several people's great ideas on how to improve the World of Warcraft!

    Here we have a very popular idea brought up and discussed by Quicktoe, a level 25 Gnome Warrior on the server Dark Iron. The ideas behind giving Gnomes and Trolls there own cities!

    I realize these two races were the last implemented into the game during its development cycle, but I was thinking it would make for an extremely cool patch or expansion implementation, to create some sort of huge challenge for both the horde and alliance to overcome in order to have all their races to have their own city.

    I realize there would be immense design challenges to accompany this change, but it could be a world effort on the scale of 1.9 and its new instance.

  • Want to know more about Age of Conan? Too bad. Instead I will talk to you today about turnips. . .

    Ok just kidding. The Official Site has a gameplay preview on the Mage Archetype.

    The mage class is based around inflicting damage from range. In their cloth armor, they are unable to withstand much direct conflict. Given the demonic sources from which some of the mages draw their power, the mage classes in Age of Conan will be able to call on dark powers to help them on occasion even when the enemy gets closer! Through the use of spellweaving, mages will be able to create some staggering attacks.

  • LFG - Have C.E.O. still need janitors.
    According to the Inquirer, employers or in this case one employer, Yahoo is looking to hire World of Warcraft players.

    "According to him the reason he was hired was he played WoW. Apparently if you are an effective World of Warcraft guild master you get a crash course in leadership."

  • Since I missed this on Friday and I'm really looking forward to this game and therefore I'm making sure you do too.. Here is the Gameplay Preview #2 Class Tree Explained

    So how do you develop your character in Age of Conan?

    The first thing you choose in your character development is your class. Here you can choose from Cimmerians, Aquilonians and Stygians. Cimmerian is Conans race. They are tall, grey-eyed, dark haired and fair skinned. They are typically tall, muscular and fierce. Aquilonians are the "Romans", if you like, and they represent the pinnacle of Hyborian culture. They are darker in skin, but they have a larger variation of skin and hair tones than the Cimmerians. Both the Cimmerians and the Aquilonians can choose from three different class types: Warrior, Priest or Thief archetypes.

  • The Death of Gimpy

    Sound familiar?

    Gimpy receives loot: Copper Ore
    Gimpy receives loot: Copper Ore
    Gimpy receives loot: Copper Ore
    Gimpy suffers 3200 damage from Silentkiller's Ambush
    Gimpy suffers 860 damage from Silentkiller's Sinister Strike
    Gimpy Dies
    Silentkiller spits on Gimpy
    Silentkiller Dances

    Death is a part of almost every MMORPG on the market currently,
    it's an issue that affects us all, every time we log onto our respective games.
    Death has really changed over the course of the years, every new game adding
    something new, a change for better or for worse it seems.

    With World of Warcraft, Blizzard has thrown at us their own way to penalize us through in game death, however, how far has it really gone since the days of Everquest? Have the gamers been getting it easy these past few years? Check out death editorial "'Tis Only a Flesh Wound" at WoW - TenTonHammer.

  • This just in... Warhammer Online is coming in 2007.

    “’WAR’ is coming!” proclaimed Mark Jacobs, President and CEO at Mythic Entertainment. “We’re well into our first year of intensive design and development on the game that we believe will usher in the next generation of truly great MMO’s. With our expertise in RvR and a rich fantasy setting that is in a perpetual state of conflict, ‘WAR’ promises to be a game unlike any other.”

    “The core concept behind ‘WAR’ is simple – war is everywhere,” explains Lance Robertson, Producer of “Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning.” “This world, dominated by force of arms and magic, provides a wonderfully rich setting for an MMO. Our game will give player entrance into this world to experience the epic nature of war and the glory of battle. Every aspect of the game, including PvE content, is geared towards the greater war in some important way.”

    To learn more about “WAR,” visit the game’s newly redesigned website: www.warhammeronline.com. Sign up for the monthly newsletter to receive exclusive stories, art, and game information, as well as a chance to take part in the game’s beta test.

    It's really starting to look fantastic.
