World of Warcraft sometimes gets panned for its graphics, which have never been on the bleeding edge of virtual reality. This, however, was a deliberate choice on Blizzard's part, and I think it's a good one. It allows for people who are behind the hardware curve (such as myself) to enjoy the game,...

At its most basic level, pet battles are a game of rock, paper, scissors. Flying beats Aquatic, Aquatic beats Elemental, and so forth. However, there are a few pets that change up that dynamic and add another level of complexity to the system. The Nether Faerie Dragon, for example, is a Flying pe...

Patch 4.1 is adding a bunch of new content to Cataclysm, including retuned Zul'Gurub and Zul'Aman heroic instances, but it's also adding a resort, apparently. Perculia over at Wowhead went on an expedition to the 4.1 PTR, where she discovered that there's been a new area added in the mountains be...

On the EU forums, a character named Redbranch from Thunderhorn came up with what I thought was a pretty nifty idea -- getting his/her fellow players to chime in on a list of 101 things to do in old Azeroth before Cataclysm hits. It's sort of the WoW equivalent of The Bucket List, and the responses ...

I've been looking at the Noblegarden items for awhile now, since they first showed up on the PTR. For some reason, it never hit me until I saw it on live realms how cool one item in particular actually is. For five chocolates you can buy your own Noblegarden Egg, which allows you to lay a Brightly ...

Revanchion is a level 60 ghost... thing in Dire Maul: West. He's one of the more annoying-to-get-to invasion bosses. Not because he's all the way out in Feralas, but because he's in Dire Maul: West. To get to him you need the Crescent Key which is earned via a quest in Dire Maul: East. So he may be...

Well Fed Buff serves up tasty dishes to boost your HP, stats and appetite – with that special WoW twist, of course. With Wrath of the Lich King barreling down upon us, we felt somewhat compelled this week to pull a recipe from a less well-travelled area of the old world. Come with us back ...

There's not much to say about this video other than it's beautiful. Robgee did an excellent job with his footage and color filters. While Shipwreked is technically a music video, we would say that it's a work of art. Robgee filmed this machinima in multiple locations, including Stranglethorn Vale, F...

While riding in Feralas from Desolace, reader Kahdrill noticed this tree next to the road. As she put it, "The first thing I noticed was the shape of what seemed to be a man, standing with his arms stretched out. Then i saw that opposite of him was what looked like the figure of a woman. Made me w...

Reader Michael sends in this shot taken in the lush landscape of Feralas. And though you may be inclined tot take this for just another waterfall, Michael points out an interesting detail: the water splashes off the rocks as it falls. Is this a recent addition, or just something we've never bother...

As I've said a few times on the site before, I love seeing Archmage Vargoth in the weirdest of places. Wherever players can go, I love seeing that little purple guy show up, too. And so reader Horns has made my day-- he's started a blog completely dedicated to seeing Archmage Vargoth all over Azer...

Pheonix_singing found Outland... and it's in South Carolina. Doing a little searching, I also found Durotan, Nagrand, Crossroads (oh man watch out for all the Chuck Norris jokes there), and Lakeshire. Unfortunately, Azeroth doesn't appear on Google Maps anywhere-- at least until they start mapping o...

With the release of the latest WoW TCG expansion, a new in-game pet has arrived, Bananas the Monkey. Looking into this has led me to a wonderful site dedicated to collecting all the non-combat pets in Warcraft. And when I say "dedicated", I mean "look no further than this site." World of Warcraft Sm...

Nemain of Medivh snapped this shot while swimming from the shore of Feralas to Feathermoon Stronghold at 2 in the morning. And all I can say is wow -- I don't think I've ever seen the sky over Feralas in quite those colors. And while it's quite beautiful, I have to wonder what sort of air pollution...

We gave you some screenshots to caption last week in our Countdown to Burning Crusade, but this week it's your turn to provide us with some screenshots. We're going to do a series of three "best screenshot of location" contests, and we're going to give you some extra lead time on a couple of them, s...

Jason sends in this shot of Feralas looking out towards the island stronghold of Feathermoon. A boat comes around to this dock to take you there -- though I have been lead to believe that it's actually faster to swim, I've never bothered to confirm this myself. Do you have a unique shot of Azeroth ...

Reader Kelgas of Azjol-Nerub sends in this impressive shot from Feralas. And while Feralas is a zone full of amazing scenery, this waterfall must be off the beaten path, because I can't quite place it. Though that probably just implies that I'm ill-explored.... Do you have a unique shot of Azeroth ...

Moony on WoW Ladies is freaked out by the Burning Crusade. But unlike most of us, she's not freaked out because all the new instances look so awesome, or because she loves playing with the new races. Nope, she's freaked out because there are spiders. If you've ever been to the Spider boss in ZG (or ...
