Bearheals: (on archaeology) The smallest distance between two points is a bunch of erratic zigzags. After patch 4.3 went live in late November, class columnists and commenters busied themselves with the new 5-mans and Dragon Soul raid. I think it's safe to say that Raid Finder problems have...

@Druidis4fite The AH Fee structure is a regressive tax on the poor. #OccupyGregStreet @Warcraft This movement doesn't seem to have a clear message. -- CM Lylirra As with all BlizzCon-related months, October was jam-packed and probably the busiest month of 2011 for the site. However, t...

Curulan: Pigeon raid boss. I love it. GET ON THIS, BLIZZARD. September was pretty much all patch 4.3, all the time. The PTR didn't actually go live until close to the end of the month, but we definitely made up for lost time when it did. Transmogrification thoughts still dominated the site'...

Candida: Knitting Grandmas would be an awesome guild name. Money, money, money, money. Money! August saw an avalanche of money and gold-related discussion as Blizzard announced that Diablo 3 would feature a real-money Auction House. Oh, and Blizzard registered Mists of Pandaria as a trade...

Rekon13: To make you look at other gearing options, we've decided to remove other gearing options. July was a very busy month for the site. Patch 4.2 hit in late June and with it, the Molten Front, Firelands, and a slew of mechanics and policy changes for the game. The latter is something y...

Merry Christmas to all those of you who celebrate! June 2011 was a pretty patch-oriented month. 4.2 was still on the PTR, and we slowly wound our way through the content there, writing as we went. As with patch 4.1, it was a late entrant in the month it debuted, so you'll see most of our commenta...

Does WoW ever creep you out? NoYou Read trade for more than 20 seconds and you can make a strong case against evolution. CloakedDrifter The Goldshire inn on Moon Guard. *shudder* MattKrotzer It creeps me out that one of the quest writers has such a fascination with poop, and making ...

Afrozombie: At least we know why it took so long for them to release (the new version of Zul'Gurub). They were stuck waiting for (Bloodlord Mandokir) to finally find and solve his sword, Zin'rokh, Destroyer of Worlds. You know all that editorializing and back-and-forth discussion you saw ...

Rai Yer a wizard, Harrypotterarthasdk. In marked contrast to February, this was a fabulous time for the arts and WoW Moviewatch. However, what jumps out at me most about March are the number of things that, with the benefit of hindsight, we realized Blizzard was already thinking about for M...

Croe We even had a tank go to the first boss in Stonecore for farming a mount, and dropped immediately afterwards. Snuzzle He's gonna be joining and dropping Stonecore for a while then, 'cause the mount drops from the second boss. This was a relatively slow month for WoW Moviewatch, al...

Revrant: (What's the best new quest of the expansion?) The Bears Up There. Climb a tree, grab bear cubs, throw them screaming through the air, and they explode if you miss. Good gravy -- this is the third year I've written a Best of the Year series for WoW Insider! Longtime readers will probabl...

The expansion went live, and in short order became the fastest-selling PC game of all time. We were too busy playing it to write anything, though. Yeah, that's a lie. As an aside, we wanted to thank our readers for hanging with us this past year -- for the comments, the tweets, the emails, and j...

The cataclysm went live in the form of patch 4.0.3a. We thought that was pretty cool. Also, Orgrimmar got the equivalent of a raid boss. That was also pretty cool. Oddly, on top of all the news that came rushing in this November, it was another great month for the arts scene. News Ghostcrawl...

BlizzCon, BlizzCon, BlizzCon! October revolved around the events and revelations of the annual Blizzard convention ... not that there were a lot of revelations this year. Oh well, we still had fun. This was another month with a ton of articles devoted to straight news reporting, but patch 4.0.1 and...

While drafting this outing of The Best of WoW Insider 2010, I realized that Chase's The Light and How to Swing it: Why is the mana gone? was accidentally slapped into the May 2010 edition. Whoops. It's really supposed to be here, so I've engaged in a little cut-and-paste. Otherwise, the march of...

Beta news started to come in at the approximate pace of an avalanche this month, so we devoted a lot of time to straight news reporting that'll probably feel a bit dated now that the expansion's gone live. We've selected the more timely bits. Also, the news of Blizzard having to monitor Goldshir...

Two words: Real ID. July was defined by the latest iteration of an old meta-game, Blizzard versus Players. The community had an almost universally hostile reaction to Blizzard's announcement that the use of one's real name would be required for posting on the Battle.net forums, and the controv...

A Merry Christmas to all those of you who celebrate! Today we're going to tackle June 2010, which was a relatively slow month for us. The Cataclysm beta was in full swing at that point, but most of our staffers didn't yet have keys. Raid content on the live servers got a slight boost with the intro...

The Net interprets censorship as damage and routes around it. -- John Gilmore That quote'll come in handy for understanding May. The Cataclysm alpha was released and stayed private for all of about five minutes before appearing online, leading to a flurry of cease-and-desist letters (we assume) ...

January was a busy month for us, but February was still busier. Players were getting deeper into Icecrown CItadel, the Lich King encounter became available, and controversy swirled over who really got the world first. News Ensidia scores world-first 25-man Lich King kill As expected, Ensidia ...
