1008 WoW 2

Hackers will invariably do anything to get a rise, so to say.  When it comes to hacking games, they want to see chaos erupt by any means necessary, even if it means wiping out hundreds and thousands of players, or even an entire city, for that matter.  Yesterday, several hackers in the guise of Level 1 World of Warcraft characters killed off everyone – players and NPCs included – in Stormwind and Ogrimmar.  Other cities, […]

0912 Panda

Before you use World of Warcraft’s screenshot-snapping tool, you might want to think twice.  Reports emerged yesterday regarding watermarks surreptitiously embedded in each screenshot taken on WoW’s tool, containing the user’s account ID, the realm’s IP address and the screenshot’s timestamp.   According to OwnedCore, which had responded to feedback from several WoW players, the codes do not include really sensitive, personal user data.  No real names or passwords are included in these watermarks.  But […]

0817 Pandaren

  Serious World of Warcraft players probably wouldn’t benefit much from Blizzard unlocking all of Azeroth’s races from the beginning of the game.  Heck, why unlock something that was already made available through the Cataclysm expansion?  But we have to consider that WoW keeps drawing new gamers into the fold, and the newbies will (hopefully) be glad to know that Patch 5.0.4 will make each and every race will be playable from the get-go, regardless […]

Bobby Kotick

It was a big blow for World of Warcraft fans when Sam Raimi, one of the most recognizable and high-profile directors in the entertainment world, announced he wouldn’t be directing the World of Warcraft movie.   Three weeks ago, the Spider-Man series director told Crave Online at Comic-Con, “Actually, they don’t have me directing World of Warcraft anymore because when I took the (Oz: The Great and Powerful) job, they had to move on to another […]


So there is a World of Warcraft expansion coming out this fall that some of you may or may have heard about. Supposedly it has something to do with pandas, as if they were a thing now. So while all eyes are locked on panda goodness, Blizzard has done the norm for a new expansion and let a select few players into a closed beta. As it goes everyone with an active WoW account would […]


With Mists of Pandaria just around the corner Activision Blizzard is hoping that their “dwindling” subscriber base will see a huge increase in returning and new players. World of Warcraft was, at one time, seeing 12 million subscribers on average and has recently dropped as low as  the 9 million mark. There are quite a few factors that come into play for this decrease. WoW has been around since the end of 2004 and the age is definitely driving some […]

Pet Battle System

The pet battle system, or Warcraft pokemon if you wish, went live on the beta realms a while ago, and as the name suggests, it’s basically a Pokemon battle with pets. The system itself is a little more complicated than that though, you need to catch your pets yourself and then level them up to do battle. Right now it’s basically set to moderate difficulty to capture pets, if you mess up you ability rotations […]


Although I hate to openly admit it, there are times when I am prone to rash decision making. Take for instance my experiences within the World of Warcraft. Several times I either looted an item that I wasn’t supposed to or sold a sweet purple chestpiece because of a random misclick. I can’t imagine that I’m the only one who has dealt with this kind of dilemma, and am therefore shocked that a restoration system was […]

Stormstout Brewery

Well, this will be the last part of our quick look into the upcoming World of Warcraft expansion Mists of Pandaria. And to top it off we’ll bee looking at the instances from a general, hopefully spoilerfree point of view. When the game launches there will be 9 new dungeons and 2 remade old dungeons. First out we have two old Classic WoW dungeons which will be remade for Mists of Pandaria, both of them […]

Jade Forest

For the second part of our look into the upcoming World of Warcraft expansion, Mists of Pandaria we will look at the new leveling zones, ranging from level 85 – 90. There are 7 new zones, all with some new interesting design, contrary to the slightly dark and damp theme of Wrath of the Lich King and Cataclysm, the Mists of Pandaria zones are light and soothing, there is everything from lush forests to high […]
