The Queue: Zombie goasts, leave this place {WoW}

Sep 23rd 2011 3:31AM I wonder if Blizzard will ever experiment with different business models for paid character services. For instance, they reduce the fee when migrating from a high pop. to a low pop. server, or they could offer group (i.e. guild move) discounts?

Or is the point behind the cost to help reduce admin. in the first place (among others) ?

All the World's a Stage: Plot points for Gnome roleplayers {WoW}

Sep 11th 2011 5:09PM I'm really fascinated with the gnome archetype - not only in WoW, but in all kinds of fantasy (and mythological) settings. I'd write a tl;dr about it, but it could end up breaking the web form. Thanks for the great article, Anne!

P.S. I have a theory that gnomes as we know them are inspired from a combination of the David the Gnome-kind of folklore and the Noldoi[1][2] of Tolkien, among other things.

The Queue: Attunement was awesome {WoW}

Aug 23rd 2011 5:03PM Oh man, I was so excited to get a Kindle subscription to Wowinsider when I read this. Then I discovered it's not available to people in my geographical region. I can still get it on my Kindle via other means if I wanted (e.g. Readability), so not complaining (...that much). =)

Breakfast Topic: Why did you start playing WoW? {WoW}

Jul 3rd 2011 6:12AM The fact that one of my favourite fantasy races was a playable race was what made me check it out initially. Even though Gnomeregan still isn't conquered, I look forward to the day my gnomes can move back in. =)

Blood Pact: How to be a true warlock {WoW}

Jun 21st 2011 5:50AM One of my favourite warlocks from an online comic: http://outofworld.thecomicseries.com/comics/34

( Though that story arc kind of starts here: http://outofworld.thecomicseries.com/comics/15 )

Breakfast Topic: Azerothian technology {WoW}

Jun 16th 2011 8:56AM World of Warcraft isn't a fantasy world as much as it is a narrative universe. It's not a stretch of the imagination to consider that the steampunk-esque engineering of the gnomes and the conflagratory mechanics of the goblins might well seem primitive to others who dabble in the science of inter-dimensional transportation or organic/inorganic chemistry (living crystals?).

The Queue: From the photo album {WoW}

Dec 12th 2010 5:11PM Adam, I hope that RL will get better. Come back soon!

The 25 most evil achievements finale, part 2 {WoW}

May 6th 2010 6:43PM I've read all the arguments for and against School of Hard Knocks. I really, really try to see both sides of the argument, but in the end, this is the one achievement that I will not pursue.

I don't like annoying people on purpose and, no matter how hard one tries to be the nice guy, this achievement forces people to act like idiots (from both a PvE and PvP player perspective).

WoW Moviewatch: Frontline {WoW}

May 5th 2010 4:34PM Brilliant stuff! Going to have to look at the music video for this song.

The Daily Quest: The mage vs. warlock battle {WoW}

May 5th 2010 9:16AM It seems that "mages vs. warlocks" is the new "pirates vs. ninjas". Mages are, of course, the ninjas.
