A little while ago, we did a "Top ten most beautiful spots in WoW" post, and many commenters had an interesting request: a companion post of the ten most desolate places in WoW. We thought it was a great idea, so we're taking the suggestion to heart. This was an interesting topic to think about, be...

This Breakfast Topic has been brought to you by Seed, the Aol guest writer program that brings your words to WoW.com. Soon, Deathwing the Destroyer will spring forth from his exile in Deepholm and wreak havoc upon Azeroth. The world (of Warcraft) as we know it will never be the same again. Some ...

I don't know that we've ever quite posted about this, but here you go: given that we're going to be losing old Azeroth forever (sometime in the next 12 months, if the guessing is to be believed), Too Many Annas is stepping up the wallpaper project, aiming to put together pictures of every single z...

So when I first heard about the Cataclysm, I actually sort of figured Blizzard would use a sort of phasing system on the old world: You'd start in the current old world, and at some point, you'd do a quest series that would phase you into the new, Deathwinged Azeroth similar to the way one progresse...

I've been farming a lot of ghost mushrooms and gromsblood lately in order to make Demonslaying Elixirs. My guild's farming trash in Sunwell Plateau at the moment and has taken a few half-hearted swings at Kalecgos, all of which ended in much hollering and arguing and waving of hands in the air. Bu...

There's not much to say about this video other than it's beautiful. Robgee did an excellent job with his footage and color filters. While Shipwreked is technically a music video, we would say that it's a work of art. Robgee filmed this machinima in multiple locations, including Stranglethorn Vale, F...

Where would you guess this beautifully lush landscape was located? Would you believe in the very heart of grey, dismal Desolace? If you find that hard to believe, you've probably never ventured very far into Maraudon (and I can understand why you wouldn't bother -- completing the dungeon requires ...

I generally don't like to post negative questions, but I think we all have a story here. Player Mementomori of the Dethecus server kicked off the discussion by picking Desolace as the worst zone in the game. He cites a badly placed graveyard and lack of decent quests. Its only redeeming value is bei...

Reader Tkrask of Hellscream (EU) sends in this nice picture of Ranazajar Isle in Desolace with a picture-perfect sunset in the background. If you aren't familiar with the scenic Ranazajar Isle -- and I can understand why you wouldn't be, the Naga inhabiting the place aren't what you would consider...

It's not often that I run across sites I have never before seen in Azeroth, but I must admit that this is one of them. Reader Shane has sent us this interesting image of the Maraudine War Horn. This is apparently what I've missed for skipping over those centaur quests on every character I've ever c...

Desolace certainly lives up to its name -- its desolate and lonely plains are a solid mass of grey. (Well, I imagine the plains aren't lonely if you happen to be a scorpid, vulture, or centaur -- but to the rest of us...!) This particular shot, courtesy of reader Chris, shows Thunder Axe Fortress, ...
