ZAM's RIFT Launch Day Guide
2011/02/23 at 6:49 PM
There's games other than WoW -
Yeah, that's right! Other companies indeed dare foray into the seemingly Blizzard-dominated World of Warcr- I mean massively multiplayer online universe, and sometimes they actually get stuff right! This latest example of stuff being done right comes from
, a new fantasy MMO that looks
pretty damn awesome
. Haven't heard anything about it? Well it's time to step out from under that rock, get out of that instance, stop farming those herbs and check out some of the badass features and content RIFT is promising. Will it succeed? You should be the judge. It's okay, we won't tell WoW you're cheating on it.
Rift is launching on March 1st, and our friends at ZAM have been working their butts off on their snazzy
and have recently posted an equally awesome
RIFT Launch Day Guide
which I definitely recommend checking out! We'll all be rolling on the Wolfsbane shard, Defiant side so feel free to come stalk us! <3

This year, the Lunar Festival runs from
. So far, the event looks to be mostly the same - no new Dungeon Finder boss or anything of that nature.
It's worth mentioning that due to the Cataclysm, some Elder locations have been changed! Most Elders locations have changed only slightly, as they remain in the same general area - it's just that the general area itself may have moved!
We have now updated all 2011 event Elder locations, thanks to our community and a bit of elbow grease (let's hear it for

Ready for Raiding: Flasks, Elixirs, Potions and You!
2011/01/07 at 6:39 PM
Do you want to be better at your class? Sure, we all do. The first step to a successful raid is to learn as much as possible about playing your class to its potential, and executing what you've learned in a clean and understanding fashion. The next step? Mind-altering and strength-modifying chemicals!
No raiding career is complete without the hundreds of hours spent farming raw materials for consumables! Right? Of course, some clever players opt to instead farm the Auction House, scoring the sweet deals and making good plays that earn them the money to supplement their raiding "habit." For everyone else though, it means knowing an
and getting them the herbs they need to help you! So what flasks do you need? What herbs do they take? Where is lizard help? Don't worry, Wowhead's got you covered.
I've put together a guide to help familiarize players with the new consumables available for Cataclysm content. This should serve as an informative introduction as well as a strong reference for all of your flask, elixir and potion needs! Be sure to check out the detailed guide, including run-downs of all-things liquid and c

Cataclysm Daily Quests: Therazane
2011/01/03 at 9:40 PM
The Cataclysm expansion added thousands of new quests, and among these were quite a few new daily quests with which players can raise various reputations and earn some gold. I'll admit, I'm not particularly impressed with the monetary gain from these quests, as most quests award around or so, but I can tell that these quests were added as an alternate means of raising reputations without having to grind dungeons with the appropriate tabard on. That being said, I thought I'd take a look at the daily quests added for various factions with this expansion, starting with the big momma herself,

has been completed. You will first start earning Therazane reputation from quests upon completion of

News Roundup: Rated Battlegrounds Honor Change, Traveling Azeroth
2010/12/30 at 4:48 PM
Just two little brief tidbits of news today!
Blizzard changes Rated Battlegrounds to award full Honor to players already at the Conquest Points cap, and have also posted a helpful and informative guide on getting around in the World of Warcraft!
We've recently made a change in an effort to promote continued play in Rated Battlegrounds. Now when a player is at their weekly Conquest cap they will receive the full amount of Honor from kills, objective completions, victories and losses while in a Rated Battleground match. Those not at their cap will continue to earn Conquest normally, and will only earn Honor once they reach their weekly cap.
Whether you’re capped and others on your team aren’t, or you’re all capped and just want to keep playing, we hope this change will allow more flexibility for those participating in Rated Battlegrounds.
Check out their informative post on travel methods in Azeroth and beyond after the break!
