WRUP: The new Warchief isn't edition

Eliot Lefebvre

So the big thing this week was talking about the identity of the new Warchief of the Horde in World of Warcraft, which is probably exactly who you expected if you've paid any attention to the game's lore over the past two years. Rather than spoil that reveal right here, I'm going to tell you what the new Warchief isn't.

The new Warchief of the Horde is not a basic campfire. The new Warchief is not a piece of furniture, nor is the new Warchief a Sith. The new Warchief is not distributed via flyers to your home, does not go on icy to dull the pain, and should not be applied directly to the forehead. The new Warchief is neither your boyfriend nor your girlfriend.

Most importantly, the new Warchief is not WRUP. This is WRUP. It's right here past the cut with some of our staff members discussing what we'll be doing over the weekend. And then let us know what you'll be doing, which hopefully includes just finding this out so we can stop pretending it's a spoiler.

Anatoli Ingram, Guild Wars 2 Columnist
@ceruleangrey: This weekend I'll be puttering around in Guild Wars 2's Super Adventure Box and leveling my crafting in Final Fantasy XIV! I might also poke at Ascended weapon crafting in GW2, but getting to 500 weaponsmithing is expensive and I'm cheap. I'll also be talking incessantly about my favorite World of Warcraft character, who has finally taken his rightful place as warchief of the freakin' Horde. Nothing in the past few years has tempted me to resub to WoW more than that.

Bree Royce, Editor-in-Chief
@nbrianna: Not quite sure where I'll be this weekend. I've been working on some modding stuff for an article and thinking about returning to some classic MMOs for a while until the next big thing in Guild Wars 2 happens.

David Desi, Multimedia Contributor
@PsykopigAU: Star Wars: The Old Republic has dug its delicious claws into me once again. So I am familiarizing myself with that again while still mixing in some Champions Online!

Eliot Lefebvre, Columnist Extraordinaire and Senior Contributing Editor
@Eliot_Lefebvre: Final Fantasy XIV is still up and playable. I keep thinking I might get a little bored or something, but... nope, going to fight Garuda, wish me luck.

Justin Olivetti, Columnist Extraordinaire and Senior Contributing Editor
@Sypster: Right now I'm deeply smitten with Card Hunter, so that might occupy my little free time this weekend. Perhaps a smattering of Lord of the Rings Online too, now that the countdown timer is ticking for the expansion.

Terilynn Shull, Star Trek Online Columnist
@terilynns: I finally got my Reman officer, Grenna, to level cap in Star Trek Online. As a birthday gift to myself, I bought a boatload of keys and (yay me!) I got a shiny (and spiky) new Tal Shiar Adapted Destroyer! So I plan on working Grenna into the Romulan Reputation system now so I can arm this puppy appropriately. Advice on what weapons might work best would be greatly appreciated. Grenna is a tactical officer and she can't wait to get into this ship!

At the start of every weekend, we catch up with the Massively staff members 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!
