Stats 101: Your character's resources and attributes

If you've been around the game for a while, you know World of Warcraft's system of resources and attributes so well that it seems like it needs no explanation. However, for players diving into their first MMO or even just switching classes, the basics of WoW's resources and stats -- otherwise known as the jumble of numbers listed on your character sheet (just hit "c" to see what we're talking about) -- may as well be a foreign language.

So if you're trying to get started and you're a little lost as to what all of these numbers mean, how they affect your game, and the kind of gear you should equip to play your best, this guide is for you. Read on and we'll walk you through the numbers in plain English.

Icy Veins class guides given stamp of approval by top guilds, theorycrafters

Icy Veins class guides given stamp of approval by top guilds, theorycrafters
The WoW community is so old and so large that there's often a dispute about where to go to get the best information about your class. In the past, Elitist Jerks was often recommended as the one-stop, hot spot, but nowadays the best class resources seem to be speckled around the web at sites like or Totem Spot. So what do you do if you want to find it all in one place? The WoW resource site Icy Veins (probably best known for their dungeon guides) is looking for an answer to that question.

Earlier today Icy Veins announced that their class guides have been reviewed and approved by players from top guilds and other notable members of the community. Looking for an up-to-date elemental shaman guide? How about one that's been approved by Leeds from the guild Method?

Filed under: News items's Guide to WoW Resources

If you've been following for a while, you might have noticed some more directed community content -- things like The Daily Quest, the Weekly Podcast Roundup, and our Twitter account are helping spotlight some excellent content the greater WoW community has to offer. There's been a little less posting about other people's specific topics, but we're also going out of our way to make sure we spotlight the community via other methods.

One of these new methods, which we're pleased to bring you today, is's Guide to WoW Resources. It's a gigantic listing of over 200 sites, blogs, and podcasts. All of these sites are updated relatively frequently, and all are great resources for the WoW community. Even though churns out about 15 to 20 articles a day, we know you need to read at least 100 articles a day about WoW... and now you can!

Head on over to the guide and check it out. If you notice your site or your favorite hang out missing, just leave a comment below or email and we'll take a look. While we've spent more hours than we care to admit putting this list together, there are no doubt a few unintentional oversights -- just let us know.

When you're looking for this listing in the future, just check up on our newly updated nav bar. It's under the "Guides" section.
