A new batch of fre realm transfers have opened up for European servers, which is always a good thing. A lot of these transfers are ones we've seen before though, so hopefully this time around these options will be more successful than they may have been previously. We also have a whole load of trans...

Auchindoun is very much hit-or-miss on its lore, in my opinion. Some aspects of it are very cool, and others are quite... lacking. This is one area in which the retcons and alterations that accompanied The Burning Crusade are very apparent. The end result gave a proper 'feel' to the environment, bu...

The one that seems to have gotten the most people excited is our beloved Silver Hand. The inclusion...

A post I saw while crawling the forums during one of my 'no sleep' periods has me wondering the same thing the original poster is: where in the Outland are Turalyon and Alleria?

Blizzard is rolling out new hardware for several US realms this Thursday, and the process of transferring the realms means - you guessed it, extensive downtime.  The migration will begin on Thursday at 12:01 AM PST and may last as long as 24 hours.  Those of you on effected realms will rec...

If you're thinking it was just yesterday that Blizzard opened four new realms, you wouldn't be far off.  Hot on the heels of Monday's new realm openings, we have another four.  Still no RP-PVP, but at the rate they're rolling out new servers, can it be far behind?Turalyon - PvE Haomarush -...
