In northwest Mulgore, right on the border to Stonetalon Mountains, there is a small plateau area that is chock-full of prairie dogs, rabbits and mice. At first glance, this would appear similar to the icebergs in Northrend that were home to entire colonies of our small, suited companions. That is ...

That's right, when a player suggests that maybe a zeppelin should be flying around the Tauren city of Thunderbluff, Kisirani says only, "Okay." So, a zeppelin is coming to Thunderbluff?

Brig of Lethon sends in this incredible shot of Thunder Bluff in Mulgore, framed by bright blue sky and verdant green grass. In fact, I can't recall Thunder Bluff ever looking so beautiful and pristine. Is this a doctored shot or is Brig's video card just that much cooler than mine? At any rate, Th...

What do you do when the pressures of endgame all become too much? When the PvP grind gets you down, and raiding just isn't doing it for you any more? Spend some time away from it all, in an exotic location where everything's new again -- make an alt. Preferably a cross-faction alt. It sounds idyllic...
