WRUP: You won't believe these incredibel WoW headlines


It's been a slow week. Month? Let's just say: the news hasn't been rolling in like we'd hope. So your intrepid WoW Insider staff took matters in our own hands and took a page from other news organizations. If there's no news worth telling, then we'd just make it up. Keep reading below. You won't believe what we uncovered. (That isn't true.)

Adam Holisky (@adamholisky) I'm working to get all the pets I need up level 25 to do the Celestial Tournament. Only about 12 more pets to go...

Fake Headline:World of Warcraft players to have their real names displayed in-game

Anne Stickney (@Shadesogrey) I'm not sure what I'm going to be up to this weekend. I still have two wings of Siege LFR to run in my quest for a legendary cloak for my alt (I may be insane for even attempting this but it's been okay so far), but beyond that I haven't really seen anything that I want to sit down and play. The regional sports channel over here just started broadcasting spring training games, so I might watch some baseball with my dad, even though it totally doesn't count right now.

Matthew Rossi (@MatthewWRossi) Well, my wife deserves huge credit for somehow getting the warranty people to do their jobs at all, so this weekend I'll be singing her praises. I may also be gearing up to go Prot full time, as it is the end of an expansion and I ALWAYS end up prot at the end of an expansion, like clockwork.

Olivia Grace (@oliviadgrace) This weekend I'm going to be doing some arenas (I feel like I say this every week) and mixing it up with some Heroes of the Storm, as well as hitting up the 100% bonus XP weekend in Diablo III! I can't wait for RoS.

Fake Headline: Warlords of Draenor beta opens!

Sarah Pine (@ilaniel) This is the first weekend since my surgery where I'm starting to feel pretty okay again instead of crushingly exhausted all the time, so I would like to go outside and enjoy the daffodils that have started blooming again, providing it doesn't pour down rain. Game-wise, I think I'm going to poke Diablo III a bit, and there is of course the ubiquitous WoW.

"Then again, mon, they found a way to mess with us in Burning Crusade, so it's hard to stay positive."

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!
