WRUP: Playing those level 100 blues

So Warlords of Draenor has been out for a week, which means many of us have started to hit level 100 and gear up for the end-game grind. Or have we? Tis the season for new game releases, and console titles like Dragon Age: Inquisition have a strong draw for WoW Insider's RPG-loving crew. But there's still plenty to do in Draenor, plus the 10th anniversary content is just getting fired up. So what's a gamer to do?

Spoiler alert: we're still (mostly) playing WoW. But to see what exactly the team is getting into in WoW (and otherwise), as well as letting us know what you're playing this weekend, read on!

WRUP: So it begins

BlizzCon inches closer with every passing day. It's close enough now that there's little else on the minds of the WoW Insider crew. Whether we're going to be there in person or watching via the virtual ticket, this weekend is one of preparation. One does not walk into BlizzCon unprepared.

Follow along to find out what we're all up to this weekend, and tell us how you're spending your weekend in the comments.

WRUP: Exploring an all-new Hallow's End

The holiday season of Hallow's End is once again upon us, and this year we get a special treat: after a few years of the same old holiday, Hallow's End has gotten some updates. This year, you've got new loot to spend your Tricky Treats on, including costumes and new pets. We may still be a few weeks out from Warlords of Draenor, but new holiday collections do give us something to do.

So just how is Team WoW Insider tackling this updated holiday? Read on and we'll tell you all about it! Plus, be sure to jump down to the comments to tell us just what you're playing this weekend.

WRUP: Patch 6.0 surprises

Patch 6.0 has finally arrived, and with it comes plenty of changes and even a few surprises. Yes, even though Team WoW Insider has been eagerly awaiting the latest patch for a good long while now, there were details we missed, changes we expected that didn't appear, and just things we hadn't thought about until we logged in for the first time post-patch.

But a new patch and new content means we're definitely playing this weekend, surprises or otherwise. To find out just what sort of virtual trouble the team is diving into, read on -- or join us in the comments to tell us what you're playing in this post-patch weekend.

WRUP: Patch 6.0 is just around the corner!

The weekend means WoW time, and since this is our very last weekend before patch 6.0 arrives, most of team WoW Insider intends to take advantage of this time to try to finish last minute tasks. Will we finish all of our pre-patch must-dos before the deadline? Only time will tell.

Curious about what the team is up to in-game this weekend? Want to regale us with your own weekend (and pre-patch) plans? Drop us a line in the comments!

WRUP: Looking forward to 6.0

As the week once again segues into weekend, team WoW Insider gets ready to kick back, relax, and, of course, game. But while we might be diving into WoW, our minds are focused on one thing: patch 6.0, which will bring many of the conveniences we expect to see in Warlords of Draenor to the game now. The patch has been testing on the PTRs and is likely to land on live servers soon... so the question is, what is everyone most looking forward to from the first game patch since Siege of Orgrimmar?

Read on to see just what the WoW Insider team thinks and be sure to chime in yourself in the comments!

WRUP: How many legendary cloaks do you need?

It's the weekend once more, which means it's time to forget about the stresses of the work-week and dive into the delightful escapism of video games... which usually means playing some Warcraft. This week, we're all looking towards the end of Mist of Pandaria's legendary cloak quest chain, so in addition to what we're playing this weekend, we talk about where we are on our legendary goals.

So just what is the team up to this weekend? Read on to find out -- and let us know what you're playing in the comments.

WRUP: Looking forward to WoW's 10th anniversary

This week, everyone's been talking about WoW's upcoming 10th anniversary celebrations, with an updated take on Molten Core (with a corehound mount reward) and a Southshore/Tarren Mill battleground so you can relive the good old days of vanilla WoW. But with the timing of the expansion and the duration of the event (which lasts from November 21st to January 6th), some of us are worried about hitting level 100 over the holiday season with time to enjoy these updated classics.

So who's looking forward to heading back to Molten Core? Let's see what the WoW Insider team has to say.

WRUP: Waiting for Warlords edition

With a few months still to go before Warlords of Draenor arrives, we're stuck in something of a WoW doldrums. Sure, we have plenty of time to catch up on our virtual to-do lists to get achievements we've never gotten or finish leveling yet another alt... but so close to the expansion, the question also remains: why bother? In a few months, the gear we've spent so long collecting will be replaced with new starting zone gear and only the memories (and the achievement points) of Pandaria will remain.

So it's no surprise that Team WoW Insider is doing a lot of stuff that doesn't involve playing WoW this weekend. So what is everyone playing? Read on to find out and be sure to chime in with what you're playing this weekend in the comments section.

WRUP: The news is finally happening

fireworks in azshara
There's been a surprising amount of news this week. It's like warlords from some not-quite-time-travel location are finally catching up to us. Whether we're talking about the night time being dark or just kind of dim, or exciting new fiery corgis, it feels like things are finally happening.

So when we asked What R U Playing this weekend, we also asked: what's been your favorite bit of news? What's on your mind about recent events? Also, most importantly, is the Corgi the best pet ever, or just the best pet available?

WRUP: Breaking Gnome

This week saw the premiere episode of Azeroth Choppers, a new webseries featuring Paul Jr. from American Chopper. Two teams, Alliance and Horde, are being challenged to construct the ultimate chopper for the faction they represent -- and both bikes will be put up to player vote, with the most popular chopper being given a model in World of Warcraft itself. Sure, it might sound kind of silly, but it was also pretty fun -- and in the spirit of fun, we decided to ask our staff not only what they are playing this weekend, but what television spoof they would like to see next?

Alex Ziebart (@AlexZiebart) I'm going to be doing more Heroes of the Storm this weekend. I genuinely expected we'd have the Warlords alpha/beta by this point, so I don't have much to do in WoW for the time being. I want an Azerothian version of Hoarders. They can start with Anne and Rossi's banks and void storage. Puns that combine hoard and Horde need not apply.

Touché, Alex ... touché.

WRUP: Just a little haiku

guild-bank-pun
Some say that haiku is done. That as an internet art form, the haiku has been beaten to death and left on the roadside. But we few, we happy few, we band of bloggers, say that there is yet a little life one can drag free from the beaten style and left to your enjoyment.

So this weekend, we've offered you not only the games that we will be playing. We also offer a bit of our souls in the form of a few poems. Make sure you don't miss out on Rossi's epic lyrics, in particular. I think they'll please even the most hardened prose addict.

But what about you, dear reader? What will you be playing this weekend? We'd like to know. Leave a comment below so that we may know a little more about your deepest, darkest soul. We're curious, and we promise not to tell your family.

But, sometimes, recent world events are so troubling that we might be talking about those affairs. Or we might be talking about some personal news. After all, "news" is a big word. So when we asked your intrepid WoW Insider staff what they thought of the news this week, we got some surprising answers.

Kick back with a bottle of your favorite legal beverage, and join us in the freshest installment of WRUP: What R U Playing? Leave a comment below and let us know as well; we love hearing what our fellow players plan to do with their weekends.
