I was idly browsing the blue tracker this morning over at Wowhead, as you do, when I spotted a thread asking whether using addons is cheating. In the instance of this post, the writer is discussing Deadly Boss Mods' PvP functionality in battlegrounds where it calculates how quickly either faction...

It would make a very sad paladin to think that anyone was playing WoW without these addons installed. Sure, some of you are purists -- but if you are, then maybe this column isn't for you! I love these addons, and I want to share. Do note that this is six addons I couldn't play without. Your o...

At this time in an expansion, the pre-panda lull, many of us are leveling alts. Some people have bucket lists where they have set ambitious targets of a certain number of 85s or a certain level achieved. My bucket list is going pretty well. Remember folks, the secret is to set fairly unambitious ...

The original Blizzard UI is great. It's what came with the game, and I'd hazard a wager that it is used by the vast majority of players. And it works.

When I first started playing WoW, I barely had a clue how the game worked. I was really lucky that the group of friends from the pub who'd got me started on it in the first place were lovely, kind, caring people who took time out of their gameplay to teach me how to do even the simplest thing. ...
