Since it's clearly impossible to go through the holiday season without at least a few dozen parodies of The Twelve Days of Christmas, I offer this thread, courtesy of Rhelk from Maelstrom. In which we see a raider's perspective on the holiday's festivities. And if you don't like the original poster'...

As a priest, I can relate. I rolled a healing class because I wanted to feel like I was making a serious contribution to any group I was in -- a contribution that you couldn't start the instance run without. Maybe it was a long history of being unable to find healers for groups when playing characte...

If you've been playing (and trolling the forums) for any amount of time, you'll know that the argument made here -- for challenging, instanced, single-player content -- is not a new one. This thread has all the usual responses, ranging from definitions of "massively multiplayer" to suggestions that ...

Oh, sure, we all pay our $15 a month to play, and I'm not referring to that. No, what I'm talking about is something a bit beyond that -- paying people in-game to play with you. Poster Cruc on the general forums complains of an inability to find priests for groups -- and that the last time he was lo...

Poster Gnipgnop claims he's taught his pet cat to play World of Warcraft -- and wants to know whether or not this is a violation of the terms of service. Tseric responds to the thread with a cop out answer -- but inquiring minds really want to know! I've chatted with a guildmate recently about teac...

Though many MMOs do have some type of guild housing available, World of Warcraft doesn't have any such option, nor are there (to my knowledge) any officially acknowledged plans to create them. However, there are players out there who would very much like to see some sort of guild housing in the game...

Maybe this is just a very sad attempt to troll. Maybe the person posting it is actually trying to be funny. At least I hope so -- because it's very difficult for me to understand how someone could really be this dense. After all, this is America and we all have a constitutional right to be a member...

I found this post hiding away in the suggestions forum listing players "stupid little wishes" -- minor (some VERY minor) changes to the game that they'd like to see in the future. Top of the list and a personal favorite is "I wish my guild tabard wasn't tucked into my robe." (What can I say, I've al...

Not familiar with the Bloodsail Buccaneers? Well, for those of you out of the loop, the Bloodsails are pirates, and mortal enemies to the goblins of Booty Bay. Some inhabitants of Azeroth have chosen to pursue a pirates' life -- but many become discouraged when they realize they've given up access t...

This thread brings up an interesting point about the minute differences between the various races. As far as gameplay goes, rarely is there any significant advantage to playing one race over another. So where is the flavor? Shouldn't the different races have a different feel to them -- beyond diffe...

Normally, I wouldn't take a second glance at a post with a title like this. However, the little Blizzard icon next to it, indicating a response from a Blizzard employee, compelled me to investigate further. And, if you're in need of a good laugh, perhaps you should take a look at Eyonix's explanatio...

Visited the forums lately? If so you may have noticed something a bit odd -- namely, that everyone's avatars have been changed to candy corn. Human, Tauren, Gnome... all are united by the candy corn! And while the forums now rage with debates about non-epic candy corn (they're not very purple, are ...

While the shiny new beta forums are up and running, the old forums - with all their sticky posts and archived information - are offline.  Drysc claims they're offline due to an unrelated issue and should be coming back, though the continued downtime is the longest in recent memory (starting lat...

Blizzard has unveiled a new version of their forum software, with a lot more sparkle than the previous version.  While it's unclear as to what new hardware or software supports these forums, their intent is to provide a more stable and robust forum system for us all.  One thing that stands...
