One of the things which kept me in Azeroth -- at least long enough for the addictive side of the game to set in -- was the promise of exploration.

So there's been a feeling in the air lately that some of the blues have been in a bit of a teasing mood.

Sometimes we, as players, do some incredibly silly things. Even after, say, 45-50 levels of dealing with the character, learning the tricks of the trade and the ways of your class, we can still make mistakes which may or may not lead to our certain doom. In the case of our poor Tauren friend in thi...

Hot on the heels of tomorrow's expected 2.2 release, Neth has posted the short-but-sweet 2.2.2 patch notes, which include Brewfest and Hallow's End, featuring lots of new seasonal rewards and quests.
