Ding: Realm First! Level 85 Rogue
2010/12/21 at 6:03 PM
For those of you who have not been following my escapades on
, a few months back I personally decided I was going to attempt the "impossible" and obtain
Realm First! Level 85 Rogue
. Since I actually managed to achieve this amazing feat two weeks ago, I've had quite a few people ask how I did it and what was going through my head in the process. So here I am, fully rested after several days of recovering from little to no sleep during the launch.
First off I want to put a disclaimer here, doing a Realm First is not for the faint of the heart. It took a lot of hard-work, dedication, and the help of some awesome guildies. To name a few of the people who really helped out and encouraged me during the attempt:
and the rest of my
buddies. I couldn't have done it without you!
But now let's get back to how it actually worked.
Russian Player Obtains All Achievements
2010/11/13 at 12:10 PM
, a player on the Russian realms, has earned the distinction of obtaining every single achievement in the game (as well as 78 of the 165
Feats of Strength
at the time of this writing).
Some of the noteworthy ones (as if they all weren't noteworthy) include
Insane in the Membrane
A Tribute to Immortality
It's Over Nine Thousand!
, and my favorite,
Avast Ye, Admiral!
(I just love the reward). He was also part of
Realm First! Fall of the Lich King
Realm First! Death's Demise
and many other Realm Firsts.
I don't know about the rest of you, but my hat is off to this guy. He's come the closest I've seen to beating the World of Warcraft.
Shen'dralar Reputation No Longer Required for Insane in the Membrane?
2010/11/09 at 11:15 PM
Update: Blizzard has posted some clarifications! Check after the break to see!
Blizzard recently snuck out a new Cataclysm Beta patch, and with it came a number of spell changes, new items, and all the usual goodies. We've posted in-depth details on all of these changes in our blog
, but I wanted to draw more attention to a significantly major change that will affect many completionists out there.
In this latest Cataclysm Beta build,
Insane in the Membrane
no longer requires

This is a quickie but I had to point it out. I NEED this title.
Day of the Dead 2010 Quest Guide + Information!
2010/11/01 at 3:45 PM
Day of the Dead
event has begun yet again in the World of Warcraft! This holiday remains
from 2009, so veteran players will find that there's nothing to do. It's also worth mentioning that the single quest available in the event doesn't seem to have reset from last year, so there's
no reason to participate. Newer players, however, should definitely head over to the nearest major city graveyard and get their achievement ASAP, as the event only lasts one day!
This event is a memorial holiday in which we celebrate the honor and memory of those who have passed on. They make a spiritual return to our lands, which we prepare with food and festivities, for only two days:
. The holiday is a
in-game event, similar to
, but it's pretty interesting regardless!
Everything you need to know about this world event can be found after the break.
Deathwing is Coming—and He Is Literally Going To Kill You
2010/10/26 at 8:13 PM
I'm reading a blue post from Zarhym right now, and he's giving us a chilling warning of things to come...
Apparently in the period preceding Cataclysm, Deathwing is going to be flying from zone to zone, murdering people. The implication behind the post is that once a day, Deathwing will fly down from the sky in a particular zone, and
incinerate every living creature in the area.
Everyone who is killed this way will earn a Feat of Strength for having been killed by Deathwing! Could it be ? We'll see!
Edit: Bibi from MMO-Champion has posted a
of the event!
One of Azeroth’s oldest adversaries will soon tear through the Elemental Plane to reforge the world in flame, but this foe won’t be conducting his reign of terror from the confines of a castle or lair. Deathwing is a destructive force the likes of which adventurers have yet to see in World of Warcraft, and his appetite for devastation can only be satisfied
Hotfix for Violet Proto-Drake and Master Riding
2010/10/15 at 7:52 PM
A hotfix is being deployed for players who are obtaining
Reins of the Violet Proto-Drake
What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been
, currently as it stands you do not receive
(310% flight speed) upon getting the drake. With this hotfix when you obtain the drake you will automatically learn the new Master Riding skill.
I provided an update in the lengthy thread about Master riding, so in case it gets missed I'm throwing it up in its own non-sticky thread for now.
I have a slight update to spread to the masses. We are going to be adding a hotfix for the achievement What A Long, Strange Trip It's Been. This hotfix will make it so that obtaining the Reins of the Violet Proto-Drake will award players Master riding.
The way in which 310% will be awarded is going to be a little quirky at first, but we plan to make it a more smooth process in a future patch. For now, you will need 280% flying in order to learn to use the Violet Proto-Drake. Once you mount the drake for the first time it will teach Master ri

So a little while back, right around the release of
, some of you may remember a little tribute that Blizzard implemented to our
and fearless leader: one
in Shattrath City.
You may remember him for his amusingly relevant quote,
"Here I have amassed what may well be the greatest depository of lore in all of Outland. Even the grand libraries of Silvermoon City pale in comparison. Please... look, read, browse to your heart's content. You'll find everything organized and clearly labeled."
Well as we all know, Skosiris
when things are inconsistent...so he embarked on the quest to get a matching title of his very own. We're proud to announce that, thanks to the help of our new
