It's a fact that the majority of what we do in World of Warcraft is kill things. Nearly all the supplementary activities we engage in, from shopping to crafting, are all basically to help us improve the effectiveness of our violent capabilities. Many players have noted that if WoW were at all real,...

I couldn't give this screenshot a better caption than Macabee did when he sent it in, so here goes: When Tauren Senior Sergeant Macabee was ordered to aid the forces in Outland, he wasn't sure what to expect... but perhaps he should have asked. Do you have a unique shot of Azeroth or Outland that...

We've profiled movies of a Paladin soloing Blackrock Depths. We've even seen one solo Blood Furnace. Now, ten of them have banded together to tackle Karazhan. And they manage to clear it all the way until the last two bosses, Nightbane and Netherspite. Not bad for a class that constantly beats up o...

Reader Okan of Gilneas tells us that he's been leveling a new Blood Elf through Eversong Woods and has been impressed by the scenery. So, of course, he's decided to share it with us! This shot appears to have come from along the edges of The Scorched Grove, where vegetation is sparse and the trees...

Every other week, Robin Torres investigates Paladin issues, interviews experienced Paladins and reports her findings in The Paladin Report. After the release of The Burning Crusade, many Horde players raced to level a pally to 70. The addition of this new class prompted many raiding guilds to encou...

The year is 2012. WoW fans are excitedly awaiting the game's 5th expansion, Revenge of the Gnomes, which brings two new races to the game (Sporeggar and Goblins, at last!), as well as a new class (the Tinker), and a slew of other features. As everyone knows, this is the expansion where the gnomes fi...

Children's Week is one of my favorite holidays in WoW, along with Halloween and the Fire Festival. Last year I dragged my little orc into so many places, I thought the Child Protective Services of Azeroth would come to arrest me. I even took him to Molten Core, where no one should ever have to go. S...

The other night we finished the Path of Conquest quest chain in Shadowmoon, and I found myself running around blasting Colossi as a Blood Elf. It was fascinating to see what I would look like if I had rerolled my character, something I consider on and off just for fun. Often times we get a chance...

Flash back to six months ago. There were people swearing up and down that the Blood Elves would ruin the Horde with their silly antics and their overly-pretty looks. Many on the Horde side had misgivings that we'd be dealing with a slew of switchers who were just rolling Horde to play pretty charac...

I know what you're probably saying..."you mean there are eight more of these?" Yes, yes there are. This time, Shepiwot has brought a friend along for the fun in Winterspring. Take two parts Blood Elf, three parts frostsaber, and about 30 parts wintermaw furbolg, and hilarity ensues. Enjoy. [Tha...

As Children's Week approaches, we turn our attention to the needy of Azeroth. The poor orphans, only looking for some companionship and a nice vacation, who end up dragged into Magtheridon's Lair. The elderly, who disappear somewhere once they're too old to fight. The homeless, the gnomeless, the ...

By this point, even inveterate Alliance players like me have gotten a chance to check out the Blood Elf areas, and presumably Horde players have looked at Draenei too. There's no question that both Azuremyst Isle and Eversong Woods, as well as their associated next zones, are very well designed. In ...

Unlike some other draenei and blood elves, I'm not 60 yet. I hit 40 last night on my Draenei Shaman, and immediately picked up the mount and converted to mail gear. Then, a feeling of emptiness came over me. I was puzzled. I've leveled up before through Azeroth, this Shaman will be my 7th trip to 60...

We've made it to the last of our grand prize contests in the Countdown to Burning Crusade, and it's high time to announce the prize winners. The runner-up, who will take home a JINX World of Warcraft hoodie for her efforts, is Myssiing on Stonemaul, aka photochik02, who sent in the following video p...

We have our winners in the penultimate Countdown to Burning Crusade Fan art contest. Matthew Renner is going to receive the Sennheiser PC 160 noise-cancelling headset and a More Dots! t-shirt for his entry above (right-click for a high-res version) of his main character Sheltem who, "having specced...

The results from our launch night poll earlier today indicated that a lot of you wise individuals opted not to traipse out into the cold and snow (or the enviable heat, as it were) in the middle of the night and are either camped out by your own door waiting for UPS or perhaps had a chance to swing...

Here's a simple question to start your morning off right: which is more attractive, Blood Elves or Night Elves? Personally, I'd have to go with the blood elves (though that's probably because they look more human). I believe this male Blood Elf is from before the models were beefed up; be sure to ta...

With exactly two weeks to go, I'm left feeling a little blah about what to do in the World of Warcraft. Not quite enough time to get another character to 60 (well, maybe my shammy), not really in the mood for raiding when my gear is soon to be replaced anyway, and the PvP grind is wearing me out a b...

When I returned to my blood elf, she was ready to go kill some Wretched and arcane patrollers in the wreckage of the Blood Elf starting area. The whole Ruins of Silvermoon area is very confusing. It's a city, but half of it is overrun by enemies, so you can't really figure out where most of the que...
