Breakfast Topic: The end of the World (of Warcraft)

Breakfast Topic The end of the World of Warcraft
Supposedly the world is ending today. If you're reading this, it means we've at least made it through the first eight hours OK. Just 16 to go! Granted, I'm not sure how this end of the world thing works with the international date line, since technically the Australians have already survived the end of the world.

Anyway, assuming the world doesn't end today, how do you think the World of Warcraft is going to end? Let's say we digest a few more expansions and there comes a day where it simply has to end. What will be the reason? Will it be to lead into the next Warcraft RTS game? Or maybe the Warcraft film? Will Blizzard simply decide they need to upgrade the infrastructure and segue seamlessly into a new version of the game with a World of Warcraft 2? Do you think Blizzard would ever end the franchise, and would it end with WoW?

One also has to wonder how it would end from a story standpoint. We already showed Deathwing what we do to major lore figures who try to destroy the world, so I sort of doubt Azeroth would ever be destroyed. But how else could Blizzard wrap the game up? Will it end once we've killed all the bad guys we haven't faced yet, like Sargeras or the other old gods? Or will it all resolve when the Horde and the Alliance finally find peace? Or who knows, maybe the game will end with the formation of a new, third faction?

What do you think?

WoW Moviewatch: End of the World (of Warcraft)


I never usually answer my phone when the number is blocked, but this time, I had a hunch. Swiping across the screen, the gravelly voice immediately came across the line. My eyes narrowed, grip tightening around the metal frame. "We have Gray. You know what we want." This time ... it's personal.

Nymh and Sharm, two of the most prolific machinima voices out there, come together for End of the World (of Warcraft), a parody of R.E.M.'s awesome It's The End of the World As We Know It (And I Feel Fine) . The vocals are on par with other Nymh offerings, and I did enjoy the lyrics, giving it a big "A" for effort. Some of the rhymes are there for filler purpose, but is pretty good for an R.E.M. parody. I am enjoying these refreshing reminders that WoW really is changing substantially in less than a month, and sometimes the gravity of that is a little bit lost on me. Enjoy.

Interested in the wide world of machinima? We have new movies every weekday here on WoW Moviewatch! Have suggestions for machinima we ought to feature? Toss us an email at machinima@wow.com.

Breakfast Topic: 101 things to do before the world dies

On the EU forums, a character named Redbranch from Thunderhorn came up with what I thought was a pretty nifty idea -- getting his/her fellow players to chime in on a list of 101 things to do in old Azeroth before Cataclysm hits. It's sort of the WoW equivalent of The Bucket List, and the responses range from the violent ("Slaying as many people as possible") to the nostalgic ("Go base jumping again in Feralas") to the practical ("Prepare plentiful supplies of gold").

Then Slorkuz chimed in with the following:

The old world is changing forever. Let's compile a list of things to do before the end.

1) Play through all the starter zones, to give some idea if each race's lore.

Visit the Shimmering Flats!

We already know that Thousand Needles is going to be mostly underwater in Cataclysm, but it was another nudge to the realization that the world we know is going bye-bye forever. Right now, my personal "bucket list" includes doing the dungeon set 2 quest line, but I'd love to hear from other players on how they're approaching the "end of the world."
