WRUP: Some of this, some of that

Alex Ziebart

Every week, just at the start of the weekend, we catch up with the WoW Insider staff and ask them, "What are you playing this week?" -- otherwise known as: WRUP. Join us to see what we're up to in and out of game -- and catch us in the comments to let us know what you're playing, too!

Another week, another weekend. We've just about run out of patch 4.0.6 news for now, so it's a full weekend of rest and relaxation for most of the WoW Insider staff ... unless you count raiding and heroics as work. If so, we're busting our butts around here.

Alex Ziebart (@AlexZiebart): My Mass Effect obsession never ends. The release of the new Mass Effect: Evolution comic has me replaying the first game. The second one was certainly a better game, but the first one did a lot of awesome stuff that BioWare dumped for the sequel and that makes me sad. In WoW, more raiding and grinding of guild rep this weekend. Also, trying to get my prot warrior geared for heroics.

Allison Robert (@AllisonRobert): More raiding with the guildies, but I suspect that no small amount of my time is going to be eaten up by shoveling snow. Truly the devil's own task.

Anne Stickney (@Shadesogrey): I am going to venture in the exciting world of electrical wiring. I will try very hard not to set my house on fire. On the WoW front, more raiding on Sunday, but other than that, nothing too terribly exciting!

C. Christian Moore (@TheArenaGuy): I'm probably going to start playing some 5v5. My FRAPS has been buggy lately, drastically reducing my frame rates. I'm going to see if I can figure out what's wrong with it so I can record some games and get them up on the site. 5v5 is by far my favorite bracket and makes for some really interesting videos and commentary. By the way, I've been in love with making videos for the site lately.

Dan O'Halloran: I've been playing an unhealthy amounts of SOE's new Facebook game, Dungeon Overlord, and don't plan to stop. If you enjoyed Dungeon Keeper back in the day, you're gonna love this new game. In WoW, I'll be gearing up for heroics on my druid and leveling my enhancement shaman through the 40s.

Daniel Whitcomb (@danielwhitcomb): I think I want to try to get my warlock to at least 75 this weekend so she can learn the next level of enchanting. Also going to start running some BC heroics for rep and pet/mount drops on my death knight. Yes, I am an achievement junkie. It is true.

Joe Perez (@Lodurzj): More heroics, trying to kick this lag issue in the rear and getting ready to spend a week with my godfather. We're going to hit some bars to check out some local musicians and get some playing time in together. Just something awesome about having family you can bust out the guitars with and just jam. Also getting ready for another awesome recording of Raid Warning this Sunday!

Kelly Aarons (@Cadistra): I've finally started doing heroics, thanks to my amazing guildies. I also picked up Ghost Trick: Phantom Detective, so I'll keep myself busy with that as well. Aside from that, it's drawing, drawing and more drawing.

Lisa Poisso (@emused): I'm finally getting that one-hour massage I've been rescheduling over and over since fall. I suspect that means I'll be too limp to level!

Mathew McCurley (@gomatgo): This weekend, I'm going to work on some art projects I've been meaning to do, as well as get some computer cleanup done. So much crap adds up in such a short period of time. Also, WoW, probably. Sunday is raid night after all.

Matt Low (@matticus): Spending some time on my shaman and paladin this week. I want to get some additional perspective on life as a ranged and melee player. Hoping that'll help me gain a better understanding so I can heal better. Think I'll watch some How I Met Your Mother and do some fishing at the same time.

Robin Torres (@cosmiclaurel): Robiness, the newly-transferred tauren druid, has joined the <It came from the Blog> family of guilds on Zangarmarsh (US-PvE-H). Formerly known as Freja, she is going to try to reach 83 before the end of the weekend. When I'm not playing Roblin the goblin priestess or Robinemia the Forsaken mage or Robinemic the Forsaken huntress or ...

The weekend is the perfect time to kick back, relax and enjoy some game time. Are you an achievement junkie? Can't get enough raiding? Rolling a new alt? Considering taking the leap into roleplaying? Whatever your favorite way to play World of Warcraft, let us know in the comments what you're playing this weekend!
