*editNot saying this article isnt semi decent it was just at the top and i was wondering if others hadn't noticed the decline in relevant and interesting articles

Short answer, boredom.Long answer, is that yes their really isn't much to talk about. We are a the tail end of a content patch so we aren't seeing anything new on the live servers outside of the new holidays, the Ice Crown patch is still just far enough away that people aren't really feeling pressured to get back into raiding shape to be ready the moment the servers are stable. Everyone is just holding their collective breath and waiting for new content, when it gets here we will see a month or two of significant volume as blogs everywhere argue over new specs, BiS lists and rotations.In the mean time and after the mad rush immediately following the patch we are really only going to see articles either speculating on how something on the PTR is going to affect things if they go live or articles like Allison's series about effective health which is less about how to actually play the game and more about how we perceive the game. Add in to this that it is new game season as every one releases new titles in time for Christmas and things really slow down, on the other hand with the festive season upon us I would be surprised if the number of articles didn't pick up some as people come up with new WoW related treats and ornaments to show off for other gamers.Don't forget too that somethings haven't changed much in the last five years, All the world is a stage has basically had the same material to work with since the beginning until Cataclysm comes out and we see the true extent of things there really isn't much me to say. I mean why talk about roleplaying a Tauren Paladin or Troll Druid when we still don't know anything about them.

I disagree. This was a great article.

*sigh* down voted due to relevance and bad mouthing towards a great website. That is well liked by many including me. (i'm guessing) response:I am not saying its due to the season or the lack of wow t-shirts and wow-pods and new wow keyboards out.I mean i remember back when the website was called wow-insider there were articles about game mechanics that went way into a depth beyond anything i could comprehend. and now all i see are "articles" that are basically advertisements and a lot of beginner's guides. Just feel likes wow.com has forgotten about its many year WoW players and readers. haven't learned anything new in a long time. I used to read this website every day (2-3 times LoL web design and oracle are boring) and i hope they will one day draw me back in the same way as before.

OK i can name 3 articles off the top off my head that arent the least bit relevant to most people and that majority would agree to be "fillers"Around Azeroth (a picture, ummm okay?)Wow Moviewatch (if i wanted to see videos, id go to youtube. Im here to read blogs)Two Bosses Enter (im not even gonna start on why this is fail)That and i could count all the world's a stage but i won't cause i guess some people are into RP i respect that. You want to RP i want to kill anub on 25 man heroic fair enough lets respect each other. But really, there's not much good content here anymore. I could only think of about 5 or 6 blogs that are still greatReady CheckRaid RxClass columns (good mix of leveling and end game advice)Wow Rookie (great for the new players)The Queue (great for new players, funny too)I know this will get downgraded but for those of you who share my sentiment that around azeroth, moviewatch and two bosses enter are utter shite help me out and maybe the admins will do something about it./salute

@Sky: You are not the center of the universe. Just because you don't like something doesn't mean the site should remove it. Particularly because, if they remove it, those of us who like it can't get it. OTOH, if you don't like something and they don't remove it, all you need to do is not read it. Skip over it. I know, that's a major hardship for your highness to be forced to deal with, but do understand that the entire universe is not ordered for your exclusive pleasure.Personally, I like Around Azeroth and Moviewatch. I don't care for the two bosses thing, but I just skip over it. I'm not immature enough to think that because I don't like it, no one should get to see it...
