WRUP: Proposition 65 Warning


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!

WARNING: What aRe yoU Playing contains ingredients known to the state of California to cause night blindness and severe respiratory distress. WRUP should only be taken as directed.

WRUP is toxic. Exposure to WRUP can cause serious illness in small children. Pregnant women should also avoid contact with WRUP, as its effects on fetal development are not yet known.

Discontinue using WRUP immediately if you experience any of the following symptoms:
  • Slurred speech
  • "Brain melt"
  • Nasal bleeding
  • Tyler Caraway syndrome
Immediately call a physician if you come into physical contact with WRUP. Do not liquify WRUP. Do not convert WRUP to a gas and then inhale it. Enjoyment of WRUP in a manner other than its intended use is a violation of federal law. Do not bother to use goggles with WRUP, as they will do nothing.

When not in use, WRUP should be sealed in an air-tight container. Under no circumstance should WRUP be stored at temperatures above 8 degrees Centigrade or below 5 degrees Centigrade. Do not microwave WRUP, or place WRUP in a dishwasher. WRUP is not oven safe.

If you come in contact with a WRUP from the future, do not interact with it or a universe-collapsing temporal paradox may occur. Do not touch WRUP, as you may fuse together with it to your mutual demise if Timecop rules are in effect.

WRUP may contain inaccurate information and is intended for entertainment purposes only.

This week, we failed to ask our writers a bonus question. Instead, I wrote, "and write your own damn bonus question what do I care."

Adam Holisky (@adamholisky) ( I'll be traveling this weekend down to Minneapolis for the Minnesota State Fair -- not quite as awesome as the Darkmoon Faire, but damn close. While down there, I'll also be having a BBQ, cooking my growingly famous blue cheese burgers. Nom nom nom. On the gaming front, it'll be nada, sadly.

Anne Stickney (@Shadesogrey) I am working on kitchen stuff, probably painting. I don't even know if I'm raiding on Sunday; a lot of my guildies are out of town this weekend. As for the bonus question, Murmurs ate it.

Alex Ziebart (@AlexZiebart) ( I'll be dungeoning on my rogue! I recently quit raiding to avoid complete, catastrophic burnout with the game and have focused my energies toward my rogue alt. I don't really know stat weights for her or any of that kind of thing, so I'm probably not playing the ideal Mutilate rogue, but I'm having tons of fun doing 5-man content as my primary focus. I think taking a break from tittering over every single piece of gear that I get to make sure it's as good as it can possibly be is somewhat rejuvenating for me. I can just play. I do wish I didn't need to run Zul'Aman and Zul'Gurub so damn much to fill out my valor points week to week, though. Tiered heroics are a great idea, but two dungeons does not make a full tier, guys! I hope Blizzard plans ahead for better tiering in the next expansion.

Daniel Whitcomb (@danielwhitcomb) ( My parents are coming to visit me next week, so I'll be doing a lot of prep for that -- getting my place semi-cleanish, finalizing how I'm going to keep them fed and entertained for a few days, stuff like that. In WoW, I've been working on a Dwarven mage, in part for the guild class/race achievement, in part because I have never played a mage. Been leveling her PVP-exclusive so far, so I'll probably be queueing with her for WSG weekend as often as I can. Bonus answer is "Yes, but only on Thursdays."

Elizabeth Wachowski (@leeatwaterlives) My mom is coming to town, so I'll be hanging out with her most of the time. If I have time, I'll probably level my long-abandoned rogue while watching my fiance play Deus Ex. Then we have HBO night on Sunday!

Fox Van Allen (@foxvanallen) ( Finally back in Boston -- and with electricity, to boot! Flushing toilets -- you don't know how much you'll miss them until they're gone. Games for this weekend: The original Legend of Zelda and Zelda 2, both on my 3DS. Mega Man 2 on the virtual console as inspiration for my painting. Answer to the bonus question: State Senator Diane Allen.

Joe Perez (@Lodurzj) Just got done moving, so adjusting and making sure the cat is settled in with me. Can't kill bosses without my raid assistant. More Deus Ex: Human Revolution. I'm absolutely addicted to the stealth gameplay in it. After that, back to raiding Monday.

Josh Myers (@Elamqt) Two Worlds II on PS3, since my internet still out. I'm continuing my tradition of playing a rogue/archer in every console RPG ever but for some reason hating rogues and hunters in WoW. As for the answer to the bonus question, I'd have to go with Tyler. Definitely Tyler.

Mat McCurley (@gomatgo) ( I think I want to finally finish a bunch of older games that I haven't really put any time towards. They are all on the Xbox, so I have to pry all of the other eyes away from the TV to do so, however. PC gaming is easier in that regard. More League of Legends is a given. Thank you very much to fan FireStrega for a League of Legends PAX code -- you made my day. My bonus question answer is "all the time," despite the question.

Matt Rossi (@MatthewWRossi) ( I'm going to be playing a game I can't talk about due to an NDA. The bonus question's answer is, "I don't think Fox really meant to smear rancid bacon all over himself. He just likes stink lines that much."

Matt Walsh (@Rhidach) Playing some Sword of the Stars (awesome space 4x game) this weekend. Probably should run some heroic to VP-cap as well ... Though I seem to have run out of things to buy for my main spec.

Michael Gray (@writegray) ( blah blah blah Sylvanas blah blah standing desk blah blah oh did I mention I do P90X blah blah blah LARPing.

Matt Low (@matticus) Busy engrossed in Deus Ex. The new one that is. Going for the blow-up-all-the-things approach!

Robin Torres (@cosmiclaurel) ( Animal Crossing, Tiny Tower and [redacted]. My answer to the bonus question is sushi. Bring me some now, please.

Tyler Caraway (@murmursofadruid) partying it up all over town ~

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!
