Over on Around Azeroth I sometimes think we focus too much on the amazing vistas to be found in Outland and look some of the scenery in our own back yard. Take this for example -- a screenshot of Silithus sent in by reader Dubl3. It my be an unvisited and overlooked area of the game these days, bu...

Reader Silvertiger sends in this lovely shot of a part of Azeroth that I think is oft overlooked since the release of The Burning Crusade: Silithus. In the pre-expansion world, Silithus was a great place for players in their mid to high 50s to quest and grind out those last levels before 60. But t...

Did you know that Auchindoun is pronounced "Aw-kin-doon," not "Aw-chin-do-in," as I've been saying it? As a shaman main, I know that the plural of shaman is shaman, but I always mess up Silithus-- for some reason I called it "Sith-il-us" all the time (it's really "Sil-i-thus," of course). Maybe too ...

It's been a long time since the gates of Ahn'Qiraj were opened on any of the realms I play on -- so it's kind of nice to see this shot sent in by reader Robin reminding me how darned cool the gate opening event was. And, since the game has scarcely enough dragons, this event includes quite a few of...

In my gaming career, I've spent entirely too much time in Silithus, surrounded by countless insects desiring my demise. (At one point, I might have been heard to say that I would scream if I ever encountered another Silithid, but with growing content out in Silithus, that's proven impractical.) How...

I've talked before about how important nature resist is in parts of Ahn'Qiraj and how difficult it is to find in Azeroth.  Well, today the Cenarion Circle reputation page was updated with a selection of craftable cloth and plate nature resist gear.  CM Eyonix has informed us that these wil...

The past few patches have added quite a few goodies to Cenarion faction, and if the gates of Ahn'Qiraj have been opened on your server there are faction-based quests that provide nice, class-based rewards in exchange for item drops from inside the (20 player) instance.  The rewards are best sum...

Ever died and woken up somewhere... else? AFK Gamer describes a strange bug in which death in Silithus meant becoming a ghost in Westfall--now that's a corpse run and a half. I've experienced something similar, randomly arriving in the Barrens after a death in Tanaris.. another time I died in Hillsb...
