Lore-wise, I can't say I understand the direction they've taken with a number of characters from classic Warcraft games in BC, but I suppose that's the reason that the term "lorelol" was coined in the first place. Mike Schramm's pointed out that the canon can probably take the abuse, but there's one...

It's probably true that the best way to make money in the game is to farm primals, but sometimes you just can't stomach the idea of killing yet another elemental or -- given how busy most of the primal hot-spots are -- having to compete to kill them. It's in trying times like these that your thought...

Last year we profiled what the inside of a manaforge in Netherstorm looked like. Reader Hellghast, Horde player of Kagarth, got higher up, right into the funnel of energies being collected by Manaforge Ara. And he brought back this shot that reminds us of the raw power of these strange structures c...

As early as Hellfire Peninsula (which I'm playing through on my Hunter right now), it becomes pretty clear that Blizzard packed Outland with quests and things to do. By the time you hit Zangarmarsh, you're probably already at 62, and with a few instance runs, it's pretty easy to get all the way to...

Reader Sporks of Hellscream (EU) offers us this mysterious shot from Netherstorm. Sporks explains he was flying around when he thought he spotted a mine on one of the floating rocks -- but it wasn't a mine, it was the odd monument you see above (located at 41,83 if you want to check it out yourself...

Reader Smegaleg from Eredar submits this Mage Action Shot (tm) for us all to enjoy. Often, in-game spell graphics come and go so quickly that there's no time to appreciate them -- but in this Frostbolt still-shot, you've got to appreciate the ice crystals and tiny snowflakes contained in each frost...

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 (sorr...

Jason sends us this shot of the haunted city of Kirin'var in Netherstorm. Inside this the Violet Tower at the heart of this ghostly town is one of the more amusing quests chains in Outland, given by Archmage Vargoth. And perhaps it's not the quest line itself that's amusing as the quest item that y...

Reader Elvenduil sends us this shot of one of Netherstorm's five manaforges. Though WoWWiki tells us that these structures, likely Naaru in design, are used to harvest mana from the Twisting Nether for the benefit of Keal'thas and his followers, all I can say about them is that they're very visuall...

Reader Breakerofwnd of Staghelm sends in this interesting shot taken in Netherstorm. Yes, it's one of the rocks randomly floating around off the edge of the world but, if you look closely... there's a face that bears a striking resemblance to everyone's favorite extra-terrestrial. (No, I'm not talk...

Demliss of Proudmoore sends us this shot of a charming home-away-from-hearth vacation spot off the coast of Netherstorm. There's no pool or concierge service, but you can't beat its view of the lightning-filled Netherstorm skies. (And how long did it take Demliss to get a screenshot with a lightnin...
