All Loot, No Group – Group Finding Tools Hurt World of Warcraft

I still actively play World of Warcraft. No, I don’t mean that I just log into my garrison a few times a week to collect gold and send out followers. I love pets, but that’s not why I log on. There are many more I have to farm, but don’t have the energy to put into hunting them down. I love exploring the beautiful worlds, but that’s not why I log on. I’ve seen almost every inch...

Siege of Orgrimmar Coming Soon To 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...

So instead of just buying or finding pets as item drops, you can now encounter...
