I wondered for a long time whether western MMOs could survive a free-to-play transition, especially since many of them were bent on having both a cash shop and subscription fee.

Transmogrification. That's the first and biggest thing Blizzard did that I thought they would never do, frankly. I not only never believed they'd do it, I didn't want them to do it. I argued against it. And now it's probably my favorite part of the game, bar none. It turns out I absolutely love...

It's no secret that I like the race change service. Since it debuted, my main has gone from human to night elf to draenei to worgen to tauren (OK, that's a faction change -- still counts) to night elf to draenei again. And I'm considering going worgen again. So the news that race change is going...

Way back in the days of vanilla WoW, your character was something you were stuck with, as well as your talents. If you wanted to unlearn your talents, you were certainly welcome to do so, as long as you didn't mind paying a lot of gold to do so. Once you made a character on that server, it stay...

Blizzard Community Manager Zarhym hit the thread to discuss the nature of Blizzard's premiu...

Blizzard has stated that despite being able to create the new race/class combos being introduced with The Shattering, players will not be able to change the races of existing characters to those new race/class combos until Cataclysm's launch on Dec. 7. If you had planned on, say, turning your taure...

Additionally, there will no longer be any achievements for being the first of your race to hit level 85; the achievements ar...

The virtual lands of World of Warcraft have played host to a number of strange sights these past few days -- and we're not just talking about the Halloween festivities which have turned once proud heroes into foam-mouthed candy addicts. No, we're talking about the new "Race Change" feature, which h...

Just about every wall has been broken down now. The only thing left is the ability to change one's class, which probably won't happen anytime... soon®. Yesterday, the highly anticipated Race Change service went live, and I'm sure a lot of players rushed to get their makeover. Take Gregg, for ex...
