Ten Ton Hammer

  • In 2000, a crack commando unit was sent to prison by a military court for a crime they didn't commit. These men promptly escaped a maximum security stockade to the Toronto underground. Today, still wanted by the government, they survive as programmers of fortune. If you have a problem, if no one else can help, and if you can find them, they will produce cool stuff like our World of Warcraft Server listing. It breaks every North American and European server down by date launch, server type, population, region and alliance to horde ratio. If you are as tired as I am of reading posts in the official forums asking what the newest Lithuanian PVE server is, then this is the answer to your prayers. Link to it religiously. Link to it often!
    Another first occurred today. We have posted the shortest exclusive article in the history of the company. A teeny, tiny hat off to the good folks that look after our Vanguard community for this Ask The Devs article.
    Numbers, Snakes on Zeppelins, Devs speak and much more is but a click away.

  • WoW Ten Ton Hammer's Guide to Grouping - Update

    Last week we launched a new guide, a guide to grouping in instances. Since it's launch I have already gotten lots of posative feedback, and made a few minor additions. Today, I launch the rest of the guide featureing items to consider for each role and class as well as what not to do and horror stories. I would love to expand these sections with additional content submitted by our community members, so if you have more tips for others or some funny or horrifying grouping stories, send them in!

    Now that you understand the basics of working in a group, its time to look at some of the finer points. What I detail in this section is all the little things that help groups work. Whether it is what a tank needs to understand about his task, or what the other players need to remember about the tanks task so that it is easier for him to do it successfully. Much of this section is simply point form items to remember.

    Keep reading to learn more. Stop by WoW Ten Ton Hammer and share your experiences with us in the forums!

  • The Inquisitor for Launch?

    We approached Sigil Games Online with an idea: what if our community members asked questions, and a developer provided one answer each week? Sigil said, "Cool, let's do it!" The result is our Ask the Devs feature. Will the Inquisitor class make it into Vanguard by launch? That's the question on the minds of a lot of people interested in playing this unique Vanguard tank class. We've got an answer for you in our very first Ask the Devs column!

    "I’m fascinated by the concept of the situational tank. I was reading that the Inquisitor (anti-magic tank) may not make it in for the initial launch. Just wondering if anyone can confirm or deny that."

  • WoW "Transportation Basics" Guide Updated

    We've updated our "Transportation Basics" guide to include valuable links and information, including a teaser about flying mounts in the upcoming "Burning Crusade" expansion.

    "With the arrival of the Burning Crusade expansion, we'll see flying mounts for the first time flying around the Outlands. These special mounts are used not only for speedy travel but also to reach special level 70 dungeons at heights unreachable by normal means. Though flight is only possible in the Outlands, these mounts can walk along the ground as well, making them useful anywhere in Azeroth."

  • TrustedReviews Offers a Preview

    World of Warcraft's upcoming expansion, The Burning Crusade is the subject of the latest update on TrustedReviews site. They offer a preview today that gives their view of the expansion.

    Unless you’ve been living in a gaming vacuum for the past couple of years, you will have heard of World of Warcraft. To call WoW a phenomenon is an understatement of epic proportions, and to be honest I don’t think that anyone, Blizzard included, realised just how massive this game was going to be. There are always stories in the media about obsessive gamers that lose whole weekends, or even weeks to their favourite game, but WoW took this sickness to another level!

    Get clicking to find out how they scored this preview! Do you agree with their postion? Let us know in the WoW Ten Ton Hammer forums today.

  • Huge expansion (and tiny race) in store for EverQuest II

    Games Radar has taken a look at the upcoming expansion to EQ2, Echoes of Faydwer. Keep reading to see what they think of it...

    Tired of endlessly waiting around for the World of Warcraft to get bigger? Massively multiplayer online gamers should take note that EverQuest II is planning an expansion that will make it larger than ever, with the Echoes of Faydwer add-on that will be available this November. Introducing a rarely-seen new race (the tiny, winged Fae), EQII is clearly attempting to pull the heartstrings of the ex-EQ (now Warcraft) faithful.
