WoW Moviewatch: Pointless Top 10: Fishing pools in World of Warcraft

Wowcrendor's latest Pointless Top 10 highlights the shocking (lack of) diversity in World of Warcraft's fishing pools. Frankly, there isn't much to say -- Crendor's trademark brand of humor does all of the heavy lifting. Personally, in just waiting for the day we can post Top 10 Pointless Top 10 Lists. This is number seven from Crendor, so only three more to go. Don't let me down, man.

WoW Moviewatch: Beta Bob

It's been a while since we've heard from Wowcrendor, but the master of the medium is back with Beta Bob. Whether you're looking for the technology to decide whether a beta activity is actually productive, or a handy reminder that you should submit the bugs that you find, Beta Bob will keep you mindful of the true purpose of beta testing.

You can always rely on Wowcrendor for some truthful WoW examination. Beta testing can be a complex activity for the developers, and it's not really meant to be a preview. If nothing else, maybe we can get a Beta Bob to defend design decisions. Except for that ice lance thing. That's not their fault.

WoW Moviewatch: Pointless Top 10: Coolest Frostfire Ridge Mobs


Wowcrendor's Pointless Top 10 lists are usually really, really pointless... but since it's right there in the name, you know what you're getting into when you click. But that said, we always wind up laughing at even the most pointless of pointlessness, so we keep watching them.

Today's Pointless Top 10 is actually less pointless than usual, since it takes you to the Warlords of Draenor alpha to find the coolest mobs on Frostfire Ridge. We hate to break it to you, Wowcrendor, but #10 is on fire and therefore it can hardly be considered cool... but other than that we take no objection to these coolness rankings. So why not take a tour of Frostfire's most interesting and/or pointless inhabitants?

WoW Moviewatch: Pointless Top 10: Useless Npcs

Wowcrendor is back with another top 10 list. In Pointless Top 10: Useless NPCs in World of Warcraft, he's counting down all those NPCs scattered around Azeroth that lack any discernible purpose, randomly roam in the middle of nowhere, stare at a wall, or are quite simply no longer useful. I really like this current series Wowcrendor has going, not just because it's funny, as is pretty much everything he puts out, but because it often reminds me of those odd little things here and there that I'd forgotten about. Like poor Sognar Cliffbeard, the meat vendor.

But I have to say, I'm pretty sure that Topper McNabb has a mansion somewhere in the outreaches of the kingdom, purchased with all the coins people have thrown at him over the last 10 years in an effort to get him to shut up. He's the quiet master of the art of panhandling, I bet you. And if, in another 10 years, Azeroth is suddenly obliterated, he'll be laughing at us all from the depths of his terribly comfortable and lavishly furnished panic room, created especially for the purpose of survival.

Yeah, don't think I'm not on to you, McNabb.

WoW Moviewatch: If Fans Created Filler Content

Honestly, this particular machinima (If Fans Create Filler Content by Wowcrendor)... honestly, some of the ideas don't sound that bad to me. I mean, random world cities with worldwide treasure hunts? How is that a bad idea? Tell me you wouldn't go on a worldwide treasure hunt. And while I don't think zombie dragons are particularly interesting, just imagine if they took that basic idea and broadened it out so that you could fight on any mount you have. That's right, I'm suggesting a PvP battle league where you fight on your mounts, collect more mounts to use in the league, and yes it's battle pets, but with mounts and with you on the mount.

Seriously how is this a bad idea? Heck, the Farmer John's farm bit sounds good as long as you don't actually burn it down with a zombie dragon at the end. That dude needs help.

WoW Moviewatch: Looking up

Much like dogs, WoW characters are perfectly capable of looking up. And what you see when you look up in WoW might just blow your mind. Or, just as likely, you'll wonder why you're watching a video about the top 10 ceilings in Azeroth. That's kind of the point of Pointless Top 10: Best Ceilings in World of Warcraft.

This video was originally going to be titled, "Wowcrendor looked up and you won't believe what happened next," but he passed on it because he doesn't work for a blog with buzz, viral, or worthy in the title.

WoW Moviewatch: Being a Noob vs. Being a Pro

The master of game-based sardonic humor returns with Being a Noob vs. Being a Pro. Plenty of differences highlight the essential natures of new player and pro player, and Wowcrendor casts a critical eye on both.

The most painful moments probably have to do with playing a Night Elf Hunter. I'll admit; I was that guy. I played that character for years, and I still look back on it with bemused shame. Don't get me wrong. Things are far better balanced now. But a decade ago, the nelf hunter seemed like the obvious choice for any newb coming or going. Well played, Mr. Crendor.

WoW Moviewatch: How to Win at Nostalgia

I have yet to see a machinima by Wowcrendor I didn't like. That said, How to Win at Nostalgia is pretty much a highlight reel of the best of Wowcrendor's videos all rolled up into one delightful package. While most of the material is re-used content, it's all the stuff I loved in one hysterical montage, and even included some things I'd forgotten about, like the heartwarming journey of Edward the Earth Root. It's four minutes of everything I love about Wowcrendor, which makes it feel a little like one of those best-of compilation album commercials, but it absolutely works here.

I think the best part about the video isn't the material included -- which is stellar, mind you -- but the immediate realization that some of my personal favorites weren't included, which led to a prompt revisit to Wowcrendor's massive archive of machinima. Check out the video, and if you like what you've seen, it might be time to go-go-go back and take a look at Wowcrendor's entire scope of work to remind yourself how far he's come, and how funny he is.

WoW Moviewatch: Vanilla WoW in a Minute

Warlords of Draenor cometh, and it won't be long before we're all not-really-time-traveling into the past to either bring back heroes of legend or kill them. You know, whichever. The game mechanics are getting another overhaul, and the number of buttons are getting trimmed down. As I read over complaints and rose-colored glasses of how the original game was so much better, and so pure, I thought of this video by Wowcrendor.

One of his earlier pieces, Vanilla WoW in a Minute is a good way to remember what the game used to really be like. It wasn't all traipsing through flowers with 40 of your best friends, and nobody needs to go back to that version of Alterac Valley.

WoW Moviewatch: What Are NPCs Thinking 5

What Are NPCs Thinking 5 is the latest installment in the secret thoughts of Azeroth's most overlooked characters. Once again narrated by the incredible Wowcrendor, this series just keeps getting better. With sly references to other games and plenty of jokes, this video also introduces the newest superhero to WoW: Totem-Arm! He's got an arm that's also a totem that's also his arm! I think fanfic is probably right around the corner.

If you want a few minutes of giggles and good spirits, make sure you hit up What Are NPCs Thinking 5.

WoW Moviewatch: Mists of Pandaria in a Minute

Did you somehow manage to miss an expire expansion? If so, don't worry about it. Wowcrendor will get you caught up to speed with Mists of Pandaria in a Minute. It's a little like vicious satire of the game or a vicious satire of the players or maybe just a hilarious look at the last year of WoW.

Frankly, you need to watch this video just for the sake of the Blingtron Rap. That's the moment we've all been waiting for.

WoW Moviewatch: What Are NPCs Thinking 4

The master of comedic commentary is back with What Are NPCs Thinking 4. It's a few minutes of hilarious interpretation of some of WoW's most iconic characters. Not the big ones like kings and war chiefs. No, this is that smug, self-satisfied snake statue or that clever auction goblin. This is probably my favorite Wowcrendor series; I don't think they get old.

I've always wondered what those ogres had in mind with their peculiar standing places. That's just not safe behavior. Ogres aren't the smarter critters in Azeroth, but you would think some basic self-preservation instinct might take over.

WoW Moviewatch: How to Tell if Your Alterac Valley Will Fail

A few subtle signs can warn you in plenty of time if your Alterac Valley is going to be a painful failure. Subtle things like an extended Belinda stay, too many people socializing with kobolds, and bottlenecks at graveyards. Wowcrendor put together this handy video, How to Tell if Your Alterac Valley Will Fail, to help you identify some early warning signs. Learn from this man's mistakes and save yourself some pain and angst.

WoW Moviewatch: Sneak Peak at Garrisons

With the thundering news from BlizzCon that Warlords of Draenor would include garrisons (a sort of player-housing light, most reminiscent of some farms that we love so much), the huddled masses of eager WoW players are desperate for a first look at the new gameplay. Trust that inimitable Wowcrendor to tackle such an anticipated subject by providing his own Sneak Peak at Garrison. It might not be the trailer we deserve, but it's the trailer we need right now.

WoW Moviewatch: If Fans Created the WoW Expansion

Not every crowdsourced idea is a good one, and Wowcrendor is here to show you why. If Fans Created the WoW Expansion highlights some of the more surreal notions our community occasionally comes up with, and probably why Blizzard doesn't always implement them. While not every notion is silly, we do like to get hung up on some particular details. I'm personally waiting for the expansion titled Hogger Kills Everyone.
