For the launch of Blizzcon 2013 today, it was revealed that World of Warcraft’s newest expansion would be Warlord of Draenor! I know what you’re thinking, you’ve already been to Outland. However this seems to be the Draenor of the past, focusing on the world rather than a revised Outland. How this time traveling story unravels is still something we’re waiting to hear full details on.
So what does the new expansion hold? Read on to see the animated announcement trailer and some of the details within. (more…)Posted in: PC Tags: Blizzard, Draenor, Expansion, Warlords of Draenor, World of Warcraft, WOW
As many of you know, I was a huge fan of the Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War novel by Christie Golden. Unsurprisingly the events in that book and seemingly the following title Vol’jin Shadows of the Horde (I haven’t read it yet but it does seem to fit the current WoW story) fit into actual World of Warcraft lore.
Odds are if you’re reading this, you’re already a big WoW fan anyway, but if you’ve been out of the game for awhile the info below may contain spoilers. Or if nothing else, a good glipse at the future of Azeroth. (more…)Posted in: PC Tags: Blizzard, Garrosh Hellscream, MMO, Siege of Orgrimmar, World of Warcraft, WOW
The latest World of Warcraft novel by Christie Golden is an absolute treat, and now you can purchase it in travel size! Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War is now available as a paperback novel. Our upcoming review will go into detail on just how awesome this book is, but I can safely say it’s definitely worth a read. I’m sure fantasy fans in general can enjoy it as a stand alone, but Warcraft fans especially will want to experience these latest moments in the war between the Alliance and the Horde for themselves.

The magical words appared in World of Warcraft announcing Mists of Pandaria had launched! Sadly I watched as my guild mates ran off to make Pandaren monks, however I figured I’d go check out the action around Stormwind. I was delighted to learn that Battle Pet Trainers would train my character even though I don’t have the expansion! What followed has almost been an hour of awesome collecting action!

Stuck at work, missed the midnight launch, and want to know what you’ll be getting with your MoP box when you rush into the game store later on today? We’ve got you covered!

As has been noted before I’m currently reading World of Warcraft – Jaina Proudmoore: Tides of War by Christie Golden and I’m loving it. Though it’s definitely a book you’ll want to pick up ASAP if you want to be the nerdy one like me that can impress your guild mates with how much you know about Theramore’s Fall.

For those geared up and leveled up enough to take on the challenge, Theramore’s Fall is now available to all level 85′s leading up to the Mists of Pandaria expansion launch! After launch, you’ll be able to que up for Scenarios at level 90 in Mists of Pandaria, which is what the Theramore’s Fall level requirement will convert to after this week. These are small instances that group three adventurers together.
So how is the first released scenario and how does it tie into Christie Golden’s wonderful Tides of War novel? (more…)Posted in: PC Tags: Mists of Pandaria, warcraft, World of Warcraft, WOW
Though it is very much a Pokémon system for WOW, I’m very eager to get into the Mists of Pandaria Pet Battle System. For those unfamiliar with the concept, the pet battle system takes your collectable yet non-combat companions and turns them into characters you can level up, teach skills to, and even hunt in the wild to add to your collection!
So instead of just buying or finding pets as item drops, you can now encounter and capture pets in the wild. I’m excited for this. The main story to Pandaria sounds wonderful to me and I’m eager to enjoy that new WOW content, but the pet battle system sounds like a bonus game that comes with the universe you’ve already come to know and love. It’s there for those who want to finally name that hard earned rare drop pet and turn it into a high level champion of this new system.

The intro video for the latest upcoming expansion to World of Warcraft has been released! Keeping with Blizzards explanation from Mists reveal, this cinematic features a Pandaren being the peaceful, but able, innocent between the two factions. I’ve personally been holding back on researching information to play out the story myself, but I’m eager to see how the Alliance and Horde influences affect Pandaria.
Set to be released on the 25th of September, that means one month today you’ll be able to play WOW’s first dual faction race. It also adds the new Monk class to the game. Mists is the fourth expansion to the long running MMO based on the lore from the classic RTS franchise.Posted in: News, PC Tags: cinematic, Mists of Pandaria, World of Warcraft, WOW
