The OverAchiever: Littlest Pet Shop, part 2 {WoW}

Oct 6th 2011 9:17AM With the mini jousters, by returning to the area and completing the daily joust quest 10 times will award you the other mini jouster as part of an achievement. The quest giver will send you an ingame mail along the lines of "it hasn't stopped crying since you took it's friend, please take thus little one as well"

Know Your Lore: A miscellany of characters {WoW}

Sep 29th 2011 3:28AM Orgrim Doomhammer. Friend to Durotan, the first orcs ever to form a friendship that bridged clans. Second in command of the Blackrock Clan, devoted to the Horde but recoiled at the power offered by Gul'dan and the warlocks. Taking the mantle of Warchief from Blackhand when he believed that the former chief was no longer fit to rule the Orc race. He took the war to the Alliance of Lordaeron. Not because he had bloodlust to be sated, but to provide space for all of his people to escape their dying world. Went out of his way to recruit Zul'jin and the Amani into te Horde. Turned the Horde's strength away from Lordaeron to punish Gul'dan for his treachery. That move may have caused the beginning of the Horde's defeat, but Doomhammer always believed that if the Horde lost it's honor, then it lost everything. Retreating to Blackrock Mountain and being defeated there, Doomhammer still hoped and planned to free his people and find a place for them on Azeroth. Up until his death at Hammerfall, it was still HIS Horde, with Thrall as his second. Doomhammer charged Thrall with continuing his plans. Free their people and create a home for them all.

Doomhammer is, in my mind, the most influential Orc. Who else could claim to work as hard as he to bringing the Orcish race back from the brink of destruction? He may be dead, but his work continues. Thrall, Garrosh. In their own ways they carry on Doomhammer's legacy. The prophecy ofthe Doomhammer line was fulfilled, he was their salvation. Lok'tar ogar Orgrim Doomhammer! Every honorable victory, every honorable defeat, is testament to your belief in the Orc race.

Know Your Lore: Lore Q&A-palooza {WoW}

Sep 4th 2011 9:33PM The rest of the clans were affected by proximity as you said, and were affected even before the Cup of Unity was offered to them by Guldan. Draka mentions to Durotan that his skin was turning green before the Horde marched to Shadowmoon Valley.

Know Your Lore: Lore Q&A-palooza {WoW}

Sep 4th 2011 9:31PM @Anne Grom Hellscream gave his blessing for the entire Warsong clan to drink the blood of Mannoroth. "Voices of the Warsong! Come forth! Not a one of you will be denied this ecstasy!" - pg 305 of Rise of the Horde.

Blackhand's sons, Rend and Maim, also drunk from the Cup of Unity.

Breakfast Topic: What class should a brand new player pick? {WoW}

Jul 15th 2011 8:11AM "Which class do you like the idea of?"
The answer to that is the only thing that matters.

Around Azeroth: From the depths of hell {WoW}

Apr 23rd 2011 7:49PM Don't forget to check out the Hounds sister guild Horde side, the Scythe of Sylvanas!

The Lawbringer: Rookie's guide to the EULA, part 2 {WoW}

Aug 20th 2010 1:27AM You might be able to, but I doubt there's a single gaming retail store out there that will accept it, as most places go to great pains to say they don't accept returns on MMOs

Official: Dalaran Children's Week quests not repeatable this year {WoW}

May 4th 2010 8:52PM Well that sucks. Oh well, gives me a reason to do something during next year's Children's Week.

Officers' Quarters: A friendly loot system {WoW}

Apr 19th 2010 9:52AM When I was GM of a casual guild, this exact scenario came up. The difference was that I was MT, RL and Master Looter. Tank item comes up that I had been hanging out for for *ages*. Both myself and the OT rolled on it and my OT won. All hell broke loose on Vent because the guild believed I was entitled to it. We managed to get everyone calmed down and very carefully I explained what I was going to do. "The rules apply fairly to all, or to no one. Congrats." and handed him the item.

The rules are rules. If people want to 'give' their roll to someone else that's fine. But otherwise if you change the rules for one person, you have to change them for all.

Insider Trader: Profession bonuses and the crafters who love them {WoW}

Dec 4th 2009 10:46PM I run as Blacksmith/Engineering on my Prot Warrior, and I've found it enjoyable. Engineering is often the red headed stepchild of the profession family, but every now & then it throws up something great. Like an 82 stam trink for a tank levelling at the start of WotLK. Or a mail box/repair bot for the raid to grab last minute stuff. Or an ezmode way of pulling Auriaya with an explosive decoy instead of relying on a DPS or healer not to get instagibbed from doing it wrong.

Plus explosives are always good.
