Sep 28th 2011 2:42PM This is akin to the ICC 5-mans, considered the last dungeon tier of Wrath, dropping epics that should aid in getting geared for Deathwing.
Sep 5th 2011 6:24PM Raid spots are a privilege. Not a right. If addressing the individual's behavior hasn't worked for a lack of respect on their part, their spot should be replaced with someone willing to work as TEAM.
Aug 12th 2011 2:04PM Zombie invasion but with a twist. If you get killed by the zombies, you resurrect AS a zombie. Forever. Your only goal at that point can be to kill other players and NPCs to turn them into zombies. Whoever is the last man standing on any given realm gets a year subscription to their choice of Blizzard game. You only get a small window of opportunity to login during the final event or your characters automatically become zombies. You can play any/all of your characters during this window, but the moment the event enters the final stage, you're stuck with whomever you're playing until the end!

Apr 29th 2011 2:14PM I play a hunter on Frostwolf, and once during a random PUG in UBRS, the group decided to do a Leeroy in the rookery whelp room just for the fun of it. They all wiped, of course, except me as I had super sneakily feigned death next to the door. The problem was that there was a whelp somewhat close to where my body lay, and would sure be facepulled for sure. What happened next I laughed about for a good 30 minutes, but felt bad because it ultimately spelled mass party-leaving doom for the group. I decided to make a run for it. So I popped back up from the floor and popped Aspect of the Cheetah and started booking it back towards the instance door, thirty angry rookery whelps hot on my tail. My fellow group members had by this time zoned back in from being dead and were making their way back up when I zipped past them mumbling something about a train of rookery whelps. Sure enough, as my group had been running single file, they each died one by one again with my maneuver. I of course made it free and clear out of the instance while my group members moaned and groaned about dying again. But that wasn't the end of it. The rookery whelps sort of congregated by the instance entrance for a full minute, pwning anybody who stuck their heads inside, which resulted in their deaths for a third time. The group sort of fell apart after that, and I know it was all my fault, so I should feel bad, but even today I still get a kick out of the story. :D
Mar 29th 2011 8:12AM Nagrand has always been one of my favorite zones visually, so I'd prolly make my home on one of those floating islands with a waterfall. :D

Mar 1st 2011 3:02PM I started reading early in the days of Wrath, and have been a daily reader ever since! Besides the obvious scoops on class changes which I have nom'ed gloriously and regurgitated to guild mates, one of the features of WoW Insider I appreciate the most is the Know Your Lore column. For me personally, my game experience has been greatly enhanced by seeing content related to the lore covered in the columns. When guildies started asking questions upon seeing King Wrynn return the the throne, I was able to proudly explain his absence. It is little tidbits like that, that I thank all you writers at WoW Insider for providing! Keep up the good work!
