WoW Moviewatch: Mad World of Warcraft Cataclysm {WoW}

Jan 25th 2011 5:01PM Awesome song, it brought tears to my eyes actually!

WoW Moviewatch: I Saw Three Rogues {WoW}

Dec 16th 2010 1:49PM Love the video and the song is awesome! What really cracked me up was the night elf ghosts, silly hordies don't know we have improved ghost form (wisp)!

Know Your Lore: King Varian Wrynn, page 3 {WoW}

Nov 18th 2010 1:20PM The only way I could tell that he went priest instead of holy pally was that he used Power Word: Shield at one point. It's very cute.

Raid Rx: Tell your raid to stand in glowing circles {WoW}

Oct 22nd 2010 11:27AM The floating leaves help a little, though, I haven't seen any bad ground effects with them. But yeah, we probably should announce it.

WoW Moviewatch: No Place Like Gnome {WoW}

Sep 16th 2010 1:15PM Oh that was really cool! I heart Grayfoo.

WoW Moviewatch: How to Tell if Your Guild is Bad {WoW}

Sep 14th 2010 2:28PM Yay Wowcrendor! I was sad when I saw it was only 44 seconds long, but it was an awesome 44 seconds :)

Guest Post: How to assemble a hot gaming rig for Cataclysm {WoW}

Sep 14th 2010 11:45AM Yeah, that first line totally put me off the whole article. You are not hypersensitive, and you do not have to pick your battles. It was rude and made it clear that the author was a male addressing males, and did not know or care if he had female readers.

The Queue: Spiders are gross {WoW}

Aug 20th 2010 4:19PM This ran about 2 weeks ago: http://www.wow.com/2010/08/08/know-your-lore-nathanos-marris-and-the-dark-rangers-of-the-fors/

He was a hero of the alliance who was killed and raised as Scourge and forced to betray everything he had once believed in. This is, literally, a fate worse than death, and King Varian felt that killing the undead version of him could bring peace to his spirit (the version of it that existed before he was turned, at least). See also the Crusader Bridenbrad questline in Northrend, it's basically what would have happened if we couldn't cleanse his spirit.

Also he was a tactical genius who knew his enemy's exact strengths and weaknesses since he was once one of them, and would have been very dangerous to let fight on the side of the Forsaken. This is where the traitor part comes in, his loyalty shifted when he was killed and raised, though he didn't have much choice in it.

As far as the Forsaken not having a right to live as they choose, from the alliance perspective the way they choose to live includes wiping out all other life on the planet, so yeah, we have a problem with that. It's not just Wrathgate either, they have done other things like performing fatal medical experiments on alliance prisoners, which is not exactly endearing.

The Queue: The Life of Bryon {WoW}

Aug 17th 2010 2:03PM "If you macro pick pocket to your openers you will always have plenty of junkboxes to stay at max skill."

That.. is brilliant. Off to make macros!

The Queue: The Life of Bryon {WoW}

Aug 17th 2010 11:37AM Well, the last time I asked someone in a cross-server LFD group if I could open the box for a skillup, they couldn't put it in the will-not-be-traded box. Though I wondered if they were trying to put it in the wrong side. But if that should work than it's cool with me!
