WoW Rookie: Reading about Warcraft

New around here? WoW Rookie points WoW's newest players to the basics of a good start in the World of Warcraft. Send us a note to suggest a WoW Rookie topic, and be sure to visit the WoW Rookie Guide for links to all our tips, tricks and how-to's.

Even if you're not a roleplayer, it's almost impossible not to find yourself swept up by some aspect of the hundreds of compelling stories tucked into the World of Warcraft. The question is, how can you dig deeper? Where do you find more? The answer: Books ... Manga ... Comics ... RPGs .... Page after page after page of glorious lore. Blizzard approves the storylines and lore included in the Warcraft and World of Warcraft line of novels, although you won't find a straight and clear progression across the whole line. Not every story and character crosses over from books to game (and vice versa).

Besides the Warcraft novels, WoW-starved readers can chew through enough manga, roleplaying game books and gaming guides to sate any lore feeding frenzy. The best part? You enjoy +Lore bonuses to your online play experience. Even the RPG books add color to the overall picture. Follow us beyond the break for a basic reading outline to escort you down Warcraft's path of lore.

WoW Moviewatch: The full version of Sunwell released

I'm not much for gameplay videos, but this one takes the cake. Cilo has channeled old school Jack Hunt with his cinematic portrayal of the full Sunwell clear. While I'm still quite the new player, I hope to one day be able to participate in epic encounters like this.

When I wrote about Cilo's Sunwell trailer the other day, I had no idea that he'd complete the full movie this quickly. You can expect more sweeping scenery and chaotic battles with a wide variety of enemies. He weaves in cut scenes to break up the raid footage a bit. Combined with a dramatic soundtrack, it's pure win.

WoW Moviewatch: The Sunwell

This next machinima came as a surprise to me. It appeared in my inbox and was so well done that I had to check to make sure that none of it was borrowed from a cinematic. It's not every day that the first time you see someone's work, it's of this quality!

Cilo, of Secretfist on Zul'Jin, created this Sunwell trailer for his guild. While not as long as it could be, it covers a lot of ground. The sweeping scenery is breathtaking, while the gameplay footage is filmed in a way that makes it tolerable. If all gameplay videos were made this way, I'd blog them a lot more often!

[Thanks, Andrew!]
