Greatmother Geyah is a total name-dropper. Every time I run into her, she asks how her son is doing, and just has to point out that she's talking about Durotan, just in case I wasn't aware that she was the mother of the Frostwolf chieftain. Meanwhile, Phylarch the Evergreen is some sort of meditat...

I've been diligently plugging away at the legendary quest chain via LFR, follower missions and the occasional stone found in my piles of work orders. Today I was pleasantly surprised to note that I now have 75 of the things -- sure, I have 50 to go, but I should be done with the entirety of it pre...

If I had to list the one character in Warlords of Draenor who already existed, but who improved the most in this expansion, my choice would absolutely be Vindicator Maraad. Before this expansion, all we ever got to see from him was his appearances in the comic book, a brief cameo in Northrend, and...

I've lost my taste for alts this expansion. With the Garrison being so important it feels like I'd be wasting effort to level another character, even though I could theoretically end up with a lot more materials that way. It just seems like a lot of time and effort spent leveling which I could be u...

I remember, back before mounts and pets just existed in a special book, that we actually had to carry them around in our bags. Many, many jokes about this were told. Jokes about how an entire horse took up as much bag space as a roll of bandages, a cherry pie, a dagger, or a greatsword. And even to...

Should Apexis Crystals be account bound? Should Garrison Resources? This is me asking - I've seen a lot of debate on the issue of these kinds of things making Warlords more alt-friendly, and I'm curious what you guys think. I'd kind of like it, I think - I'd feel freer to play a leveling up alt if ...

As much as I love Shadowmoon Valley (and it's a lot) I often wish I could move my garrison. There's something about the idea of planting it in Talador and making a bold statement about retaking Shattrath from the Iron Horde that just appeals to me - I know SMV and Frostfire are were we first arrive...

I now have a dozen followers with an ilvl of 645. This means that they can trek into Highmaul on missions and bring me back stuff -- really good stuff, all things considered. Still, I keep experiencing these moments of odd discontent, although the process of sending my followers on missions is pret...

There was a pretty good post on reddit the other day that posed the question of homes and Azeroth. If you were given a deed to a home in Warcraft's universe -- that includes Outland and Draenor along with all Azeroth continents -- where would you choose? I had to think about that one long and hard,...

Warlords of Draenor is kind of a what if expansion, and that's got me wondering. We've talked about going to the alternate Azeroth where the Horde never showed up, but why should that be the only potential what if we explore? Could we potentially end up on an Argus where we could perhaps prevent th...

Let's not waste a lot of time here in our new year. 2015. Warlords is two months old. What are your plans for the future? What are you working on in-game? Do you have any game-related resolutions? Have you even gotten to 100 yet? Share, discuss, elucidate. It's a new year. Make it yours. ...

It's the end of the year as we know it and I feel fine. 2014 was a year with a lot of big changes for World of Warcraft - Warlords debuted in November of this year, after all - but also, it's the year which saw Siege of Orgrimmar last a very long time, and Mists of Pandaria outstay its welcome f...

So we know we have Highmaul fully unlocked and Blackrock Foundry will be unlocking some time in February (if I'm understanding 8 weeks after Highmaul correctly) and that leaves me wondering - how long will these two raids be expected to last? I doubt patch 6.1 will have a new raid, which might mean...

This year, being the tenth anniversary of World of Warcraft, we actually saw quite a bit - we got the 40 man LFR version of Molten Core and the Tarren Mill/Southshore PvP deathmatch BG, both of which are going away soon. What this leads me to wonder is, what will we get for the 11th anniversary? Ar...

The developers' decision to remove flight from Warlords of Draenor zones was controversial to say the least -- some were fans of the decision and others were decidedly not. We've been without it for awhile now. After having experienced Draenor without it, how do you feel? Personally, I was a fan...

If y'all don't know what Boxing Day is (I didn't until I moved up here) it's basically pretty awesome. It started out as a day where the people who ended up having to work on Christmas (people like servants of nobles or tradesfolk) would still get something from the people they worked for. It goes ...

Everyone loves loot drops, and for many of us, today is the biggest real-world loot drop of the year. So today seems like the ideal time to talk about holiday gifts: just what did you find under your (real-life) Winter Veil tree this year? Did you snag any great gaming gifts or did you just find lu...

Hopefully, if today is a holiday for you, you're spending it with loved ones of some description, or enjoying it in whatever way you like best. For some of us, that includes a heaping helping of World of Warcraft - in past years I participated in special raids on Christmas day, or did a day of dun...

World of Warcraft's holidays are a fun change of pace from the normal daily grind, but after a while even they can seem a bit same-old, same-old. Take a look at Winter Veil, for example, which brings festive decor and quests across the land throughout the holiday season... but some of these things ...

So we're going to potentially be able to buy game time tokens and sell them in game for gold. This has been called buying gold, which is interesting to me, since it's not really much different than when we could buy the Guardian Cub and sell that in game for gold. But what the discussion really got...
