WoW Insider Weekly

We've got a special guest for you this week on WoW Insider Weekly (our roundup of the best regular content from the past seven days). Ladies, gentlemen and Gnomes, it's our pleasure to introduce to you the former Lord of Outland, straight from directly underneath Hellfire Citadel, Magtheridon! The Pit Lord is going to talk about all of our most popular weekly features, while your faithful author is going to step out for a much-deserved drink. Later.
Guildwatch: Drama, but the good kind
"Nothing gives me more pleasure even in my weakened state then watching you verminous swine squabble amongst yourselves, and Guildwatch covers every minute of it."
Ask a Lore Nerd: You're how old?
"Older than the birth of sin, mortal. You think you know the history of the universe, lore nerd? You know nothing when faced with the existence of a Pit Lord!"
New Players' Guide: Your life as a Hunter
'Hunters, Priests, Shamans or even those vermin of the Light, Paladins, none matter -- all will fall before the wrath of Magtheridon! Learn what you will, new players -- no mortal shall face me and survive!"
The Light and How to Swing It: Holy Paladin gear enchants, part 2
"Adorn your gear with whatever pithy enchants you like, vermin. I will dress it with your blood and entrails when you dare to face me."
Hybrid Theory: Is it too much?
"My blood is my own! Also, this look at group utility is strangely fascinating -- it almost makes me wish I had some support classes other than these lousy Channelers. But no matter -- the great Magtheridon, Pit Lord of the Burning Legion, buffs himself!"

Boy, that Maggie sure is grouchy. More cantankerous whining about his blood and power, along with a look at our other most popular posts, after the break.
