As much as I like being the action hero in MMOs, even I must admit that the ratio of combat to non-combat activities is lopsided to the extreme.

Thief just got its second unveiling last week, now retooled to be more traditional and in-line with the original games in the franchise versus the grammar grotesqueness of the announced-in-2009 Thi4f. Eidos Montreal offered further insight into Thief in a blog post, confirming that protagonist Garr...

Now, I like to think of myself as a bit of a pacifist. I avoid taking on non-hostile mobs wherever possible, but Tauren Druid Irenic of Mal'Ganis US has raised the pacifist game. Irenic has leveled from level one to level 90 without doing a single quest, with the exception of one quest he couldn't...

We've heard of people trying to play as pacifists in World of Warcraft, but there wasn't a lot of support for it in the game. A lot of the experience was earned from holiday events, battleground dailies, profession dailies, items with repeatable quests, and collection quests scattered across the ga...

If there's one thing that MMOs have burned into our brains, melted into our psyches and stamped all over our reflexes, it's that if something moves in game, we should kill it. Sometimes we get a little yellow caution light telling us not to kill it yet, because we're not high enough level or that p...

Reinisch is the pacifist Undead Priest who's aiming to make it to level 80 without killing anything at all (he's the same player as Noor, who we interviewed way back when and followed up with a while ago), and apparently this Friday, he's going to do it. He's inviting everybody out to a party on Fri...

When I started playing WoW two years ago, my first character was a warlock. Not understanding what the warlock class was all about, I built myself a bright sunny blond little lock, and quickly tired of the class. My next character was my mage, and I took to that class quickly and easily, having play...
