Well, dear readers, I thought last week's one was pretty darn impossible. I thought I was going to have to come back in and post clues and the like, but yet again you've surpassed yourselves. I was really, really happy to see the elation in the post from the person who got it right when they di...

Well, I think things went marginally better last week. One commenter made a great point that all it takes is for one person to know where these locations are, and that tears it for all the readers. I am quietly encouraged that it's not purely that I am such a dreadful WoW explorer that I can't...

If you're going to keep getting these right within such a short time of my posting them, you're asking for it. I won't stand for this! So let's see if this one isn't quite so easy. I'm kind of hoping it isn't -- and if it's too hard, well, I'll come back again and make it easier. But somehow I...

Right. So the last edition of Where in Warcraft I thought was a little bit harder. None of my WoW-playing friends knew where it was just from the picture -- but you, WoW Insider readers, you're just too darn good! The first correct response was from Marcscgm, who correctly identified the chap's f...

"Too easy!" is a strange saying that crops up in parts of Australia as a response to "thanks for your help" -- too easy, they say, to point out how minimal a disturbance to their lives that effort was. It's a strange response. Last week's image was clearly far too easy! Or was it? Most of yo...

Welcome to the inaugural Where in Warcraft! What's Where in Warcraft? Well, it's a game we thought you might like to join us in playing. Every week, we'll be putting up an image just like this one in the header, and all we want you to tell us is where we were when we took the shot. Like Bliz...
