  • All You Need To Know About Naxxramas

    We here at WoW – Ten Ton Hammer present an exciting new guide on the latest instance in World of Warcraft, Naxxramas! This dungeon is full of undead creatures waiting to assault the Eastern Kingdoms. These powerful monsters are still holding their own, as currently no guild has fully purged the floating citadel of the Scourge's filth. Currently our guide contains all of the information you need to know about Naxxramas along with a complete guide to the first boss in the Spider Wing, Anub'Rekhan. As we get more information, both first hand and from the community, we will be updating the guide with more tactics on more bosses. So be sure to check back often!

    "Getting to Anub'Rekhan is easy for most guilds. Heading into the Spider Wing (the area with spiders, conveniently enough) simply pull spider packs and take them out. There is generally no complicated tactic for them yet, other then "DON'T LET THEM KILL THE RAID". A good tip in this instance would take the pointy end of your sword and stab it into the icky spiders. Those without swords can heal those who have them or cleanse the various poisons that the spiders like to apply to people."

  • Hope for the Lore Challenged

    Not everyone has time to scour the existing Vanguard: Saga of Heroes lore. That's why we sent Aunraye on a mission to scoop up some intriguing lore about the continent of Thestra and boil it down to its bare essence. Are you looking for the Cliff's Notes version of Thestran Lore? Here are some random bits of lore goodness for your consumption.

    "Rindol Field, home of the Halflings, comes after the northern plains. From there you travel to Bordinar’s Cleft, home of the dwarves. As you approach Bordinar’s Cleft, which is near the peak of Widow’s Veil, you find a Halfling watch tower."

    Head over to Vanguard Ten Ton Hammer and learn more about Thestra. Did we miss anything? Let us know in the forums.

  • Build Week Continues

    One engrossing thing about Dungeons & Dragons Online (DDO) is imagining all of the possible ways to build a fun character. That's why we've dedicated an entire week to DDO Builds. Darkgolem starts off with a very special build designed to deal with many of the non-humanoid enemies DDO has to offer. It can be a niche build, but it is still a functional fighter in its own right.

    "With immunity to sleep, hold, slow, poison, disease and energy, the Destroyer of Horrors (DoH) is largely immune to the special effects of oozes, aberrations, and giant vermin...Since many of the horrors that plague the dark places of Xen’drick come in numbers, the DoH has many attacks, with Two Weapon Fighting, Cleave and Great Cleave. Stunning Blow is not effective against all of the types of beasts that the DoH fights, but it is against one of the most dangerous foes the destroyer faces: the beholder."

    Keep reading to learn more. Do you have something to say about the builds you've seen so far this week? Or maybe you have a favorite build to share! Stop in to the forums at DDO Ten Ton Hammer and let us know.

  • New Site Poll

    It’s DDO Build Week here at Ten Ton Hammer. We’ve given you builds for every race and every class in DDO. One race we hear a lot of debate about is warforged. Some people dislike them because they are hard to heal. Other players don’t care. Where do you stand?

    Poll: Will you group with warforged?

    * It’s all about the skill of the player. I’ll group with any race, including warforged.
    * If warforged bring their own wands to help heal them, I will group with them.
    * I’ll group with warforged, but I will not heal them.
    * Warforged are more trouble than they’re worth. I will not group with them.

    Let your voice be heard! Head over to DDO Ten Ton Hammer and vote!

  • Chaos Theory - Colton Burgess and Loud Ant Studios Introduce Thrones of Chaos

    Copycats are a dime a dozen in the MMORPG niche of the gaming industry. So are promises. But when a developer touts features like familial structures and aging, doesn't pussyfoot around the PvP issue and tells us the game is meant to be a no-holds-barred, guild-up-or-die bloodbath, and tosses in an active trade system between cities that guilds can use or subvert, we take notice. Whether all this will resonate in the unapologetically carebear-ish fantasy MMO camp, time will tell, but if Thrones of Chaos can deliver, we might have a darkhorse candidate challenging Age of Conan for the badassinest MMO title set to be released in 2007.

    We talk to Colton Burgess, owner of Loud Ant Studios, about his vision for Thrones of Chaos. Check out the exclusive screenshots graciously provided by Loud Ant Studios as well.

    "However, yes, each race has their own multiple finishing moves associated with combat that can be performed once you have defeated your opponent and these animations are being made with a more violent feel to them. If you are going to have a hardcore pvp themed world than the combat should also be supported with equally well-made and violent combat visuals. [Thrones of Chaos] simply is what it is... a hardcore , unrestricted pvp world focused on warring clans and guilds. Some will love it because of that and some will hate it. ;)"

  • We have two fantastic interviews up on the network with none other than Jeffrey Steefel, Producer of Lord of the Rings Online and Oren Aviv, the President of Walt Disney Studios, who talks about Pirates of the Caribbean. A big round of clap to Jeff Woleslagle, our rodeo clown in training for delivering those two gems. Mr. Woleslagle is in New York City today delving deep into something that many of you are going to love. I just can't tell you about it until tomorrow. I guess you'll just have to come back.
    My question about why fishing is a part of MMOGs gots some interesting responses, which if you check the blog regularly you have already perused. For you slackers here are some nifty comments that you should have read.
    More fishing, ATMs in churches, five MMOG articles so fresh you'll have to slap them and much more is but a click away.

  • The Truth About His Departure

    MMORPG.com took some time to talk to Mark Firor who has recently left Mythic Entertainment. Speculation can now cease as to the reason for this move as he shares the truth with all of us.

    Matt Firor was the producer of Dark Age of Camelot and Executive Producer for all of Mythic until he stepped down a few weeks ago. Hot on the heels of the EA deal to buy Mythic, the timing was conspicuous to say the least. We get the truth from Matt about why he left.

    MMORPG.com: According to the official release, you left Mythic due to the commute. Obviously, with the timing so close to the EA buyout, there are a lot of skeptics. Can you explain exactly why you chose to leave Mythic and the reason for the timing?

    Found out what the answer is and then stop by the forums here at Ten Ton Hammer and tell us your thoughts.
