Mar 17th 2011 9:24AM I hate "free" MMO's. The payment model just feels so sneaky and dishonest. I tried a game called Allods Online, which was supposed to be free to play. Sure you could play it for free, but if you didn't pay for items called "incense", you missed out on a buff that made the game practically unplayable, similar to rescurrection sickness in WoW.
Add to that having to pay real money for bag space, mounts, decursing "cursed" items to make them usable, etc. It all adds up to costing about the same monthly fee as WoW, but feeling incredibly sneaky and annoying.
Mar 3rd 2011 9:10PM Actually, it looks like they are adding a bunch of new quests to Silithus and Arathi! Hopefully these are just the first step towards a full revamp of the zones.

Feb 28th 2011 3:42PM They're two completely different, yet reminescent, events. War of the Ancients was the first invasion of the Burning Legion on Azeroth, 10 000 years ago.
The battle of mount Hyjal was the final battle of the Third War (Warcraft III), only 20 years or so agi, where the Burning Legion attempted to return to Azeroth yet again and destroy the World Tree.

Feb 18th 2011 8:28PM Very entertaining short story! It really made me enjoy Gallywix's character more.
Now if only they gave him his own in-game model and finished the pleasure palace in Azshara..
Feb 12th 2011 9:08AM Isn't he called just "The Doctor", while the series is called "Doctor Who"? At least they never referred to him as "Doctor Who" in the old series...
Nov 18th 2010 8:35PM I was under the impression that the 4000 cap was only in place for the transition between WotLK and Cata, and is to be removed after release.
Anyway, the weekly cap on Valor points will certainly help in letting the player chose what to do. If you prefer raiding, you can cap your points by raiding a lot without feeling that you're missing valor points by not running daily heroics.
If you only raid a few bosses per week, you can do some daily heroics to compensate.
Nov 18th 2010 10:20AM Yep, the Wowhead (and thus this article) is wrong on that point. Elementium veins do contain Elementium Ore (http://cata.wowhead.com/item=52185)
Nov 3rd 2010 12:54PM Lorewise, pretty much every race knows at least some common. It's purely for gameplay purposes that the horde can't understand it in WoW.
Oct 27th 2010 6:03PM To further prove that there where night elves in Eastern Kingdoms, there are some night elf ruins in the inaccessible Northern Loraeron (http://www.wowpedia.org/Northern_Lordaeron). Anyone know whether those are still there post-cataclysm, by the way?
