A Game for the Obsessive Compulsive
02/12/2008 em 23:30
So having been busy with the site since the expansion came out, I'm actually not NEARLY as high level as I should be. My paladin was level 73 at the time of this writing, which is pretty tame considering the rate at which people are tearing through the new content. But as time goes on, I've realized that I have a problem with WotLK.
I've heard complaints that it's too easy, or that the new gear isn't good enough to replace the old, or other things along those lines. But the difficulty that
have is with instancing.
The instances in WotLK are
. I mean, I don't know if there are any people out there who haven't done them yet, but they're just
. The environments are bigger and more interesting. The fights are more nuanced, and more fun. They feel more connected to the game world--you don't feel as much like you're stepping out of Azeroth and into instance-land. You can see the Howling Fjord from the balcony of Utgarde Keep. There are cinematic sequences embedded in the instances to draw you further in--not long ones, just enough to hype you up and keep you interested.
So what's the problem? The problem i
Five Handy Macros (Yes, I use them!)
01/12/2008 em 21:30
Ever wanted more bag space? How about more slots on the toolbar? Here's a list of five practical macros which I enjoy myself and would like to share with other players embarking on their epic journey to Northrend. These work even if one doesn't have the expansion. Simply copy and paste the code into the new macro text area (type /macro to start) and
A Micro-Macro Philosophy
A macro should be something that helps a player out, not burden them or make their play experience unwieldy. So that said, a macro should meet at least two of the following three stipulations to make it on the list:
A macro should not play the game for you, but help you play the game,
A macro must save space on the hotbar,
A macro must provide functionality which, by default, was difficult to achieve.
Check out the 5 macros, after the jump!

So it's that time of year again here in the US--time for us to gain another 10 pounds, and to start thinking about what we're thankful for.
I started thinking about this recently and it occurred to me that in a very real way, one of the things I'm thankful for is WoW. I hate to sound like a sap, of course, and I know that there are some people out there who have met friends, significant others, even spouses via WoW--or people who have real social lives thanks to WoW friends, etc. I read those stories and I can't help but smile. But that's not
story. My story is a little different.
Another Warcraft RTS?
26/11/2008 em 18:30
recently put up a
in the Randomness forum which asked if Blizzard was planning on a fourth real time strategy (RTS) in the Warcraft series. I quickly drafted a reply after reading through the others, then realized this would make great blogging material! The question I sought to answer was: how exactly is Blizzard going to create another RTS game, and still fit it into the Warcraft universe and timeline?
After some thought, I was able to come up with five possibilities.
The Future of Storytelling
26/11/2008 em 00:15
Someone recently brought the following to my attention:
It's a fascinating interview with
, but for those not interested in reading the entire article, I was drawn to a particular moment when he says “Storytelling in MMO's is the future”. Considering the limitations of running an MMO in a static, unchanging, endlessly repeating world, I found this to be an interesting philosophy.

Looks like someone over at

Just in case HP takes the headline down, I've linked a screenshot rather than the front page of their website. :)
Anyone else seen WoW references popping up in unlikely places?
For those of you who don't know the reference, perhaps

A Tale of Two Tribes
24/11/2008 em 17:07
Greetings fellow travelers of Northrend! Today I invite you to join me in my adventure into
and experience a war between two rival factions. The
, who were forced to travel to Sholazar Basin because of the Scourge invading their homelands, have taken up arms against the native Gorlocs. The Gorlocs who occupy the basin are known as
, and consider themselves the guardians of the mysterious titan artifacts that litter their home. Though they know almost nothing about these artifacts, they worship and protect them from any harm.
Upon reaching level 76, you might find yourself trudging through the marshes and jungles of Sholazar Basin, surrounded by the warm atmosphere and rich, lavishing landscapes. I'm sure you have come across our little friends roaming the basin, shouting at each other and calling each other names like "Big-tongues" and "Puppy-men", and you may have thought to yourself, "How can I get involved in this growing conflict between these adorable little creatures?" This, my friends, is your answer.

So you guys may have noticed some slowdown on the site lately. Unfortunately, one of our webservers has suffered a major hard drive failure, and had to be taken offline, and the other two are a little overloaded trying to keep up. We have the team at the data center working on it, and it should be fixed soon.
Kindly bear with us! :(
WoWInterface Pick of the Week for 11/23

This week, we're tackling
Ara Broker XP
(a new addon) and
(an updated addon).
Ara Broker XP
This is a LibDataBroker plugin to display an ASCII representation of your experience bar. You can change which characters to use for the bar (could do ******* or >>>>>> or ~-~-~-~-~-~- even), how many times to repeat the pattern (how long the bar is), and what colors to use. Options are controlled in the lua file, but it should be fairly easy to customize it to your liking, and there are explanations on the addon's download page. Since this is just an LDB plugin, you will need a display to show it in. For more information on LibDataBroker, see

Friday is Casual Day

To an extent, I have always been a social person. When given the option, I prefer to be hanging out with friends as opposed to doing something alone. I discovered video games before I turned 10 years old during a social gathering where some friends of mine were playing Super Mario Brothers on the
. I was instantly enamored by the concept of electronic gaming and that fascination has carried on into my adult years. The social aspect of gaming has remained important, even to this day. Sure, I play a video game by myself every once in a while, but I have way more fun when I am competing with or against friends, or even when we're simply watching one another play a game.
World of Warcraft is no exception.
What's Your Game?

So Blizzard has added two more celebrity WoW commercials to their lineup for World of Warcraft, one featuring Ozzy Osbourne (the Prince of Darkness) and one featuring Steve Van Zandt (of

Now I love these commercials as much as the next guy. But to me, the genius of this whole thing is much bigger than just some good commercials.
Skills to Pay the Bills: Fishing
20/11/2008 em 17:59
Skills to Pay the Bills
is a three-part feature that will cover the important details of leveling the secondary tradeskills of Fishing, First Aid and Cooking in Wrath of the Lich King. These posts are written for the player entering Northrend with all secondary professions already maxed (at 375 skill). For information on leveling tradeskills prior to 375, check out the
Profession Leveling Guides
sticky on our
Part 1: Fishing
is one of the easiest professions to max out, though it can be fairly time consuming. Most players opt to raise fishing casually when they find themselves with free time. You can train
Grand Master Fishing
Grand Master Fishing Trainer
. You can typically expect to spend somewhere around three to five hours raising your Fishing skill from 375 to 450. Skill-ups are gained typically every 10-15 or so suc

I'm not sure offhand what percentage of World of Warcraft players also played
Warcraft 3: Reign of Chaos
and the expansion pack,
The Frozen Throne
certainly did--for a while, Warcraft 3 and Diablo II were the only games I was capable of playing. I was never much GOOD at Warcraft 3, but I enjoyed it a great deal even when I was losing. In fact, my primary reason for picking up World of Warcraft in the first place was because I was excited to see the familiar characters, locations and battles from my old favorite game writ large--I wanted to see Warcraft 3 from the Footman's point of view.
My choice of race in Warcraft 3 was the

Your lovable Skyfire has signed up to blog (woe on him?!). I'm the Master Bookkeeper, and this week, we're going to tackle a serious subject that you may not have thought on before: The Nathrezim, more commonly known as the Dreadlords. You should know who they are -
