Aug 13th 2008 1:05PM This question is really insignificant compared to all the other Beta news coming out, I admit that, but my curiosity has gotten the better of me.
Have they made any changes, or have they given any indication of making future changes to, the way Fishing is leveled? Every other profession, be it primary or secondary, requires you to level it by performing more "difficult" tasks as you progress; be it the skinning of higher level mobs, cooking more fulfilling dishes, etc. And you can raise your skill by harvesting (or crafting) one thing at a time. Fishing requires successful catches in batches to level up one skill point, and you can simply raise your skill by fishing in the lowbie zones. It doesn't make any sense to become a Bassmaster by repeatedly plucking minnows out of the wading pool.
I'm not asking for it to become any easier or more difficult, but I would like to know if they intend to match it up with the other professions as far as how it levels.
Thank you for your consideration.

Jul 17th 2008 3:14PM Boy, oh boy, do I like that new pet leveling system. I stayed with my first pet pretty much to 70 before I tamed any others, and it was a bit of a shame I had to tame upper-sixties. Now we can go back and get some of the cooler low-level pet skins. Awesome.
Now, can we get some more stable slots for all these new pets? Pretty, pretty please?

Jul 15th 2008 12:20PM I got G4 last year, so I never saw it as TechTV. I admit to liking a lot of its shows, though. (And what can I say; Blair Butler FTW.)
Actually, Alex Albrecht co-hosted an episode of "Attack of the Show!" last December, and he gave WoW Insider a mention. Had it not been for me catching that particular episode, I would have never heard of this website, and by extension WC Radio, Big Bear Butt, BigRedKitty, or countless other resources. So because of that, I will always have a soft spot for him.
Jul 13th 2008 8:43PM There are many Warcraft novels on the market. Are they a good source of in-canon lore, and if so, in what order should I read them?
Jul 1st 2008 11:31AM I've been playing WoW for about eight months now, and have been an avid reader of this site for nearly as long. I've only recently, however, become interested in the story behind the gameplay.
I enjoy these columns, as well as Know Your Lore, but there's something about the encyclopedic way in which the lore is presented that seems a bit sterile to me, not to mention that at times it's difficult to keep track of when certain things happened at various points in the timeline.
Now to my question: I know that there are many Warcraft-universe novels on the market. Are these a decent source of information as far as in-canon lore is concerned, and if so, in what order should I read them?
