Every so often I get tired of the self-seriousness that infests some of (OK, most of) the other work I do here, and get the urge to write something purely for fun. After our series on evil achievements and the relentless misery of School of Hard Knocks, I'd like to spend some time on achievements t...

After being asked a question over where Angrathar was really located in the larger Icecrow...

The zombie invasion was the most important kickoff event for this expansion, but especially with what we've been seeing of Icecrown (s...

Rayless on the General Forums asks a question that I've always wondered about but never poked into; how exactly does phasing work?

It's a question that people used to ask about Black ...

Apologies to Paulo Coelho fans for borrowing his title, but we have two Alchemy-related questions to start us off today, in addition to questions on Blacksmithing, cinematics, and dailies: Horizons asks...

That's all I'll tell you here, so you know what you're getting yourself into by going on. Before you read the rest of this post, I want to warn you guys that behind the c...
