This article has been brought to you by Seed, the Aol guest writer program that brings your words to WoW Insider. We've all experienced it: You're walking into Orgrimmar or Ironforge, intent on visiting the auction house to spend that gold jingling in your pocket, when suddenly you stop dead, du...

I love this, as I seem to love most of the things that Mania does. She's just posted that she's put together a whole guild of hunters, all with XP turned off at different levels, for one purpose: testing pets as they move up the leveling ranks. She says she cheated a little bit to do it -- transfer...

Sure, this is hardly the most important change to come down in patch 3.0.2, but anything Furbolg is worth a mention in my book. Personally, a Furbolg casting is more than enough excitement for me, but you, our readers, are discerning people, and we know you'd like a little bit of insight tailored t...

Teech from Cenarion Circle penned a brief note on the forums today about the utter agony of farming Timbermaw Hold reputation at level 70. It seems like a lot of people are revisiting this particular rep grind in the interest of obtaining "The Diplomat" title and Achievement in Wrath, for which yo...

Each episode will bring you the full intelligence on an item or quest that disguises you, enabling you to better carry out those secret missions -- or at least confuse your friends and guildmates. This time, I'll be loo...

This is probably old news to a lot of you, but just in case you happened to join us after Burning Crusade dropped, you might not know about this magical liquid available only in the snowy wastes of Winterfall. Here's something fun that almost anyone after 55 can get. Name: Winterfall Firewater (Wo...

We have some awesome WoTLK news for you today, as Blizzard has just updated their site with a preview of the Grizzly Hills, a Northrend zone that will adjoin the Howling Fjord. Not only are there some really beautiful screen shots, but there's a video with a fly-through tour of parts of the zone, sh...

Reader Ankarah sends us this interesting shot from Netherstorm, where we see two Furbolg enjoying an afternoon stroll... Wait... Furbolg? Ankarah is enjoying some of the game's more interesting quest items. If you can't stand to be without Furbolg form, you'll have to be an Alliance character (sor...

Four Furbolg walk into a bar... no, wait, wrong article! Reader Matt sends in this shot of four interpid players who aren't just disguised as Furbolg, but disguised as Furbolg of four different sizes. So, let's think this through.... One of them is normal sized, one of them is using Winterfall Fir...

Reader Lurthaar sends in this shot taken of one of the many Furbolg camps in Ashenvale. Like all Furbolg camps, they're guarded by these creepy totems. I've tried to ask them what these figures represent, but surprisingly none of the Furbolg in the area are very chatty... Do you have a unique shot...

Reader Scroto of Illidan sends in this amusing image. I imagine the Gryphon Masters in the major Alliance cities don't look kindly upon Furbolg seeking transportation -- thus this screenshot shows an attempt at do-it-yourself Gryphon riding (or perhaps Gryphon-jacking). Do these things come with a...

I'm honestly surprised that Zaraphel of Greymane is the first person to send in a shot taken during the Learning the Language quest chain offered to newbie Draenei on Azuremyst Isle. After completing the Totem of Yor quest in the chain, you are turned into a shadow panther, and the entire world tu...

A great favorite of my guild, Dartol's Rod of Transformation is a bit of an unusual item. It doesn't have any stats, and it doesn't do any damage; no, this is a far more potent piece of loot. It transforms you into a Furbolg for three minutes. And let me tell you, there's nothing quite like a Furbol...
