No one's kiling any folk here today, on account of we got a really tight schedule. -- Mal, "Trash." Seemed to have some good luck with a previous Firefly quote, so why not? We're all set in Ahn'kahet, so let's pop over to Azjol-Nerub and lay waste to some bosses there. AZJOL-NERUB Every achievem...

Balzaphon, like Scorn, is a lich. Like Scorn (and most liches... lichen?), he's primarily a Frost-based caster. You can find him within the burning streets of Stratholme, and while you can get at him by going in the front door, it's much easier to use the eastern entrance that takes you straight to...

It's always comforting to put a face to a name, and for those who have been raucously awaiting more details on the elusive Rock Band controller, dig in. According to a purported GameStop newsletter, the ten-button axe does indeed favor a Fender Stratocaster, and while the frets appear fairly subtl...

Inspired by an old post about the Endgame Bosses Being Bored a couple of post-60 folks in my guild decided to pay Baron Rivendare a visit (and take some 55+ folks for a drag) as opposed to fighting for spawns in Outland. The sad thing is that this particular instance run simply drove home the point ...

You know, players starting the game today may never see this sight. After all, with the quests, experience, and gear to be found in Outland as soon as you hit 58, why would you bother running the living wing of Stratholme? (In my experience, one of the more annoying level 60 5-player dungeons.) How...

Reader Plod of Daggerspine (EU) sends us this shot from the streets of Stratholme. And instead of sending in just any old image, Plod has pointed out one of the creepier things in the instance -- these charred human bodies that litter the instance, frozen in rather unhappy looking poses. Yep, they ...
