Adding your mom's worldly wisdom to any situation always makes it better, and clearly the EU forums agree with this sentiment! Elbonio of the European WoW forums wants you to ask your mum to draw the Lich King, even if she's never seen him before. If she asks what he looks like, just ask her to draw...

Not so long ago, I asked this very question in a poll, so it was nice to see this excellent forum post attempting to answer the query "which class should I roll to tank?" Jakalope of US Wildhammer-H goes over the strengths and weaknesses of each of our three current tanking classes (Warrior, Druid, ...

Patch days always bring rumors of the next patch -- but I've got to say, this is the first time I've seen rumors of the patch 50ish patches from now. Zuzupetals starts off the madness by asking if anyone else had heard if 8.4 would be holodeck compatible. Other notable rumors of 8.4 include: ...

When I rolled my baby UD lock (now 52 and lost somewhere in Feralas), my warlock friends told me that my first five talent points MUST be spent making Corruption instant cast. "Everyone does that," they said. Well, apparently not everyone. There's a 22-page thread on the General Forums arguing fo...

Mirages of Cenarius has what might be the most rare problem in all of Azeroth, right up there with "I am overpowered" and "There are too few people in the cave in AV and it's being attacked": she has too much gold. As she writes in the Professions Forum, she has 12,000 gold pieces and nothing to spe...

On the official forums, poster Soylent has started a discussion of how precisely to represent the Murloc sound in text. Suggestions vary from the traditional "mrglmrglmrglmrgl" to "aurrrrrrrrruuuuggguglugglugglugluguaa," with Blizzard poster Bornakk chiming in to let us know that in the I Am Murloc ...

Player Magdar of Grim Batol server was interested in rolling a druid and asked for five reasons to do so. Players responses ranged from practical (versatility, survivability, instant cast flight form) to hilarious (more dance emotes than any other class). Even CM Tharfor got in on the fun with his l...

Over on the official forums, there's a nostalgic discussion of how to tell an old-school WoW player from a newbie. (Of course there's game knowledge -- but there's always the chance a newbie might have taken the time to read up!) So what makes the difference between an old-school player from the r...

Nayami over on Area 52 makes a good point in a recent thread on the official Mage forums about how magi must usually respec depending on which raid they're running: "So I was talking with a few random raiders on my server, and I was informed that SSC and TK has a large amount of frost immunities? I...

Bregdark is worried about Blizzard-- first we had Health and Mana potions, but those weren't enough. Then we had Superior Mana potions, Major mana potions, and now in Outland, we're chugging Super Mana potions. But where can Blizzard go from here? There are quite a few good suggestions in the thread...

Well, I think this collection of jokes on the official forums is absolutely hilarious -- combining my interests in both World of Warcraft and pirates -- but quite a few posters seem to feel the thread I'm about to point you to is quite groan-worthy. So if you don't feel like you can take yet another...

Well, this is definitely something I've never thought about before. Corntrollio of Laughing Skull asks the forums, "Ever wonder what mana or healing potions taste like? What do you imagine them tasting like?" After thinking about this a little, I realized that I actually do sort of subscribe a t...

Anyone who's spent way too much time on the internet has seen the phenomenon of lolcats -- pictures of cats doing funny things with leetspeak text underneath them. Fane of Tichondrius posted a challenge to WoW forumgoers to come up with their own, wow-related lolcats by using the lolcat generator....

Over on the US forums, Arche has started a list of the things class trainers tell you whenever they teach you a new ability. For example, enjoy this possible dialog involving Rogue's stealth: Trainer: Hey. Hey. You know how when you stealth, you walk really slow? Rogue: Yeah? Trainer: You can jus...

Over on the official forums, poster Flaval informs us that Gnome hunting season has begun and will last until August 28th. Though Flaval makes this sound like a Horde-only event, I'm sure there are plenty of Alliance who would also be eager to participate. But here's the big question -- when does ...

It seems like everyone's getting prepared for BlizzCon these days. As a member of the prestigious Too Broke To Fly Out To California club, I have to content myself with reading forum posts and leaked information from my colleagues. But for those of you that are actually going, Adriss's "Helpful Bliz...

Over on the official forums, Granada asks what features you've seen in other games that you wish were available in World of Warcraft. Sure, some of the suggestions are just silliness (do we really need chainsaws and nailguns?), but there's quite a bit of good info in the thread as well. Some common ...

Okay, this is more like Ongoing Forum Post of the Last Month, but it's still funny. Sekkite starts out "Phrases you will never see on the WoW forums" with "PvE and PvP are perfectly balanced." The rest of the forumgoers chime in with phrases that people are too proud, too stupid, or too sane to ev...

One of the funniest threads I've ever seen on the WoW forums starts out in a fairly innocuous way: "One time my Astral Recall crit ... Found myself in New York," wrote the shaman Spaceshock. From that, the thread evolved into a pure being of win and awesome, as other players imagined what would happ...
