Before I even begin, I'm going to state the one thing that's been on my mind, and likely the mind of anyone else waiting for this particular title: It's about time. World of Warcraft: Dark Riders is the offshoot of the World of Warcraft comic series, specifically, the characters introduced in the ...

If you're itching for a good World of Warcraft story and patch 5.3 is too long to wait for new story content, Blizzard is happy to oblige with the just-released World of Warcraft: Dark Riders graphic novel. Unfortunately, Blizzard's own description of the comic -- talking about an "enigmatic destin...

Once upon a time, there was a Warcraft comic series. It ended in 2009 with a special issue that featured an entirely new cast of characters, both Alliance and Horde. The premise was that the series would continue on with two individual comics, one Alliance-themed, and one Horde. This shifted ov...

Here's some coolness for your Saturday afternoon: while most of us can't afford the hundred of dollars it takes to enjoy World of Warcraft in real 3D, Toth of Aman'thul is bringing faux 3D to the masses. There are a bunch of stereoscopic images over on the forums -- these are pictures that are tak...

Welcome to this week's edition of Know Your Lore, bought to you today by assistant lore nerd Daniel Whitcomb. Stalvan Mistmantle, an inhabitant of Duskwood, is one of those guys who just sort of sits there in lore, provoking admiration in some, malaise in others, and a lot of questions in other...

In today's Know Your Lore, we're going to take a look at something that has been requested by a few readers(and a blogger). It's not a very well known topic, it comes from a quest line tucked away in the far corners of Ashenvale that sends you running all over the world as if you had absolutely not...

Reader Treant of Kul'Tiras sends us this excellent shot taken in the Duskwood cemetery. (And if you can't see why it might be excellent, you ought to click it for a higher detail version.) Of the image, Treant says he saw the moon on the horizon and thought the view would be improved with the addi...

If you have an Alliance toon, one of your early extensive quest chains was probably The Legend of Stalvan out of Duskwood. This series of quests had you running over much of the lands south of Stormwind as you learned of the bloody massacre of travelling nobles at the hand of Stalvan Mistmantle. Th...

Serisa of the Gigaknights on Daggerspine (EU) was showing a newbie around Duskwood when they ran into Emeriss in the Twilight Grove. And they did what any sane World of Warcraft players would do -- called for help on the guild line and put up a fight. Of the attempt, Serisa explains that the level...

Reader Jon sends in this shot of Beggar's Haunt, an easily overlooked location in Duskwood, laying just off the road towards Deadwind Pass. There's a couple of undead questgivers in the area if you're horde (and, in my humble opinion, they give some of the funniest quest text in the game) but the m...

Reader DigitalFire sends in this shot of the Twilight Grove in Duskwood. I personally think that this portal into the Emerald Dream (no, it doesn't currently send you anywhere) looks pretty impressive deserted like this, but occasionally you'll be exploring and find it guarded by a massive green dr...

I leveled my first characters during a time in which these massive world dragons did not exist, and therefore when exploring Azeroth I never accidentally ran into one. I can, however, imagine how shocked I would have been to be wandering around Duskwood and accidentally bump into this unfriendly fe...

So reports CM Drysc.  Only sixteen servers (of the original thirty-two) remain offline, and these still could remain offline for the full 24 hours.  However, the progress with so many realms is promising news.  The remaining offline realms are as follows: Andorhal, Anetheron, Archimo...
