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 just...

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 N...

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...

Vill of Demon Soul has an issue with the yet-to-be-released instance of Zul'Aman: "My guild and I have most of Zul'Aman on farm, but everytime we try the timed quests we always wipe on the Drummer Packs. This is obviously meant for players with significantly better gear than we can get in ZA. Plea...

Of course, this design-a-quest thread started by Sheeplle on the US forums is full of all sorts of silliness, but in between that there's some interesting quest ideas. Basically, Sheeplle asks anyone on the forums what they would do if Blizzard let them design one (just one) quest for World of Warcr...

Poor Amulet. He transfered servers and complains on the customer service forums that when he transfered, his 375 tailoring skill vanished. Ouch. After crafting that spellfire set, I can see just how painful that could be. He's complained to GMs, who have refused to fix the problem. Double ouch. You...
