Patch 3.3 On PTR! (Quel'Delar... Speculations?)
2009/10/01 at 10:29 PM
Hey, so 3.3 PTR came down on us like a sword falling on an iceberg. From the sky. Anybody else really excited about going there and kicking some butt (we'd chew gum too, but we seem to be out of gum...) with Sylvanas and Jaina? 'Cause I sure am!
Anyway, hopefully you are wondering where the stupid metaphor came from. 'Twas all intentional. A little while ago, back in the 3.1 days, when the Argent Tournament first came to existence, something starting drilling in the Lore freaks' heads. Right next to Sindragosa's Fall (where we saw the Lich King raising the biggest frost wyrm of them all in the WotLK cinematic), there was a sword. Sword stuck in the ice, surrounded by some stones, and apparently called Quel'Delar. Related to Quel'Serrar? Or maybe some sort of Excalibur reference? We knew nothing about it, until a few minutes ago when MMO-Champion dug some information from the PTR files. It's only spells, but they seem rather interesting by themselves too...
P.S. Stay tuned, more stuff might appear!
My Throat! It Burns!

It's flu/cough/cold season again and I've been running a fever, had a sore throat, and hacking my lungs out since Sunday, so I've been confined to my house so that I can rest. It's strange, but whenever I'm feeling fine, I always wish that I could go home and relax, maybe level up an alt, pig out on some junk food, etc. Yet when I am actually
to be home, I wish that I wasn't sick so I could get out of the house and
something! But I can't, so I wander around the house listlessly, looking for something to do.
I don't feel very hungry, so no gobbling down my sweets; I can't read a book, 'cause my head hurts so much it's hard to concentrate on the words; I can't play any video games on my computer, because staring at the screen (which is pretty close to my face) hurts my eyes after a while; so I usually just go upstairs, lay down on the couch and watch old movies that I've seen a kajabillion times before.
So I'm pretty bored out of my skull. But that got me thinking: What do you guys do when you are sick and confined to home? Do you play video games? Watch movies? Read bo
A Bit of Nostalgia - Who Got You Playing WoW?

Time for a bit of
to feed your addiction. As if it's possible to play World of Warcraft or visit Wowhead without becoming an addict.
Who got you into WoW?
I remember my best e-friend named Shawn. We came from
Star Wars Galaxies: An Empire Divided
, also heavy
players in intermediate gaming leagues (2v2 and 5v5). He introduced me to WOW when he got in the beta. I checked the website and said, "That thing looks corny, and I don't think it's exciting at all. The story sounds good, but..." Oh, how little did I know. I was addicted as soon as
5 Years of WoW
2009/09/22 at 12:01 PM
Just as the new Onyxia encounter has reminded us, WoW has now been with us for five years. :)
I was preparing the posts and patch information for 3.2.2, and I couldn't help but wax melancholy (as I am wont to do) about my time in WoW. Five years makes for a lot of memories. It's not unusual to get
after a five year relationship—and yet here we are spending all of that time with a video game.
I even took some time to go back and look through how the World of Warcraft Official Site looked back in the day—does
look familiar to anyone? Dwarf mages, old fashioned troll and human models.../sigh. Those were the days.
So in honor of WoW's 5th anniversary, I've been asking the staff about their oldest and fondest memories of WoW. I've included a number of them here, after the break. Come and see!
The Things We Do...

It has been almost one year (probably a bit more, right) since the achievements system was introduced to the game. And with the achievements system - one very particular achievement.
. Now that Brewfest is back around the corner, many of us are finally getting our chance to finish the trip and be rightfully awarded with a beautiful
(that flies at 310% speed, but we want it for the beauty, of course). But how many of you stopped while doing all those achievements, and thought "
Man, what I am doing is a complete absurd! I have morals, I should not be doing this for some drake!
" Yea, I didn't either...
But now that we are almost done with our lovely trip, I thought I would put a list of all the weird things we've done over the last year, trying to get the Violet Proto-drake. Read on, and enjoy the (long, strange) trip!

I know this has nothing to do with anything. But I just wanted to point this out, because I think this is my new favorite comment on the entire site.
The comment is from the
Fiery Warhorse's Reins
, the epic land mount that drops from
Attumen the Huntsman
in Karazhan. Posted by
, it details the precise reasons why Midnight is superior to all other mounts.
