Around Azeroth: Palpable evil

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

Gee, you can almost see the darkness rolling off death knight Lumila of <Eated Your Cookies> on Ravenholdt. Her evil is flaking from her like so much sunburned skin after an August beach vacation. Time to lay off the tanning, lest your already unhealthy-looking pink skin evolve into a Charlie Crist-style orangocalypse. Do you have [...]

The loose ends of Arko’narin

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

As the years have passed in the World of Warcraft, I find myself meeting more and more players who have no idea what I’m talking about when I mention some memorable quest or tiny hideaway in a level 50 zone. This is by no means unexpected in a game as old as WoW, but I [...]

Breakfast Topic: Where’s the epic

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

So we got a lot of big news yesterday: Badges are going the way of the dodo (and I for one will not miss them), and on top of that astonishing bit of news, the way we raid is about to change forever. Loot from 10- and 25-man raiding will be identical, the only difference [...]

Tuesday Morning Post: Raiding reshuffling redux edition

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

The big news this week came only yesterday in the form of some basic raid changes coming to Cataclysm. Depending on your perspective, they may or may not be as absolutely earth shattering as the changes to raid sizes at the start of Wrath, but they’re still big. The discussion and debate over these changes [...]

Cataclysm badge and PvP point changes

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

Blizzard just released a lengthy statement on Cataclysm badges and PvP point changes. Badges are going away in Cataclysm. Instead, everything will be point based for both PvE and PvP gear. There will be four types of points earned (two PvE and two PvP): Hero Points, Low tier PvE gear Valor Points, High tier PvE [...]

Choose My Adventure: Week 5 schedule

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

Choose the adventures of the WoW.com staff as we level our characters in <It came from the Blog> on US Zangarmarsh-H. I have a confession to make. I did some extra leveling on Robinemia this weekend, leaving my fellow adventurers behind. It’s not my fault! (It’s totally my fault.) I couldn’t resist the call of [...]

The danger of looking backward

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

In history, we often see that military thinking focuses on what is known to have happened and therefore misses chances to prepare for what is coming. Preparing for the horrific trench warfare of World War I led many to build large defensive fortifications that ended up being less useful than was expected in dealing with [...]

The Lawbringer: Copyrights and WoW

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

Welcome to The Lawbringer, WoW.com’s weekly tour of the intersection of law and the World of Warcraft. I am a third-year law student acting as your tour guide (and trying not to get run over, myself). Greetings! After an unintended hiatus (pesky finals to study for), I’m back and ready to start a new theme [...]
