World of Critcraft

Okay bear with me, guys—this one takes a little while getting in.
Secret of Mana
, two of your three characters have magic, up to a maximum of 99 magic points at a time. Your offensive caster has an MP absorb spell, but aside from that, the only way to restore your magic points mid-dungeon is to use a Fairy Walnut, which restores 50 MP. You can only hold a maximum of four.
By limiting the selection of mana-restoring items to one item type, which only restores mana in one large chunk, the game has rendered it almost pointless to increase your maximum mana above 50.
Are you with me here?
Religion in WoW
2009/05/13 at 5:23 PM
Some of you may have wondered, what are the different religions in the world of Azeroth? Well, in this blog I will discuss a few of those religions. There are seven major religions with a few more minor ones. The seven major religions are
Church of the Holy Light
Worship of Elune
Mystery of the Makers
Followers of the Old Gods
Cult of Forgotten Shadow
...with the most prominent of these religions (probably) being the Church of the Holy Light.
Follow us after the break for a little lore-lesson!
My Problem with Varian Wrynn
2009/04/22 at 8:21 PM
As someone who "grew up" as Alliance,
(shown here in his old digs at Stormwind Keep) was something of a fixture in the Alliance and generally his storyline, quests and dialog seemed to be pretty well-written. Aside from that, many of us appreciated how awesome he was when we first saw him fighting off the
Onyxia's Elite Guard
that were hiding in the keep, surrounding Bolvar.
These days, we're looking at
instead. I didn't think too much of it when Wrynn first showed up, but then I read up on his lore and I found myself rather unhappy with the general nature of the story and his background. My gut reaction was to dismiss the lore behind him as being simply
. I wouldn't have a problem with him if the story didn't have the somewhat perplexing sense of an attempted shoe-horn of a new character into WoW. I use the word perplexing because the word was used by the loquacious, frenetic and n
Rest In Peace, Dave Arneson

Dave Arneson, one of the co-creators of Dungeons and Dragons (with
, who died in March of last year),
died of cancer
last night in his home in St. Paul Minnesota. He passed away in his sleep, surrounded by his loved ones.
It's a strange feeling, now—it's like moving out of your parents' home. The great-grandfathers of Role-Playing Games have passed on. The future of Role-Playing Games is now in our hands. Take good care of their gift, dear readers. Dave and Gary would have wanted it that way.
Rest in Peace, Dave.

Dear Wowhead... (Episode 8)
2009/03/29 at 2:14 AM
Long time no see, dear readers! Please forgive my absence at the writing desk, for I have been separated from my mailbox! Let us all dearly hope that no such inconvenience strikes us again.
Today we have a letter from a confused young man in Stormwind City. Shall we?
I am yet another addict, seeking your help - for the sake of both me and my beautiful wife, Elaine. I am a huge fan of your "Dear Wowhead" section, and have recently gathered my courage to write to you, seeing that you have already helped people like me -
, being two examples.
It is more than embarrassing to say, but I am addicted to...cheese.
Yes, cheese, is that a problem?!
...I am sorry for my temper, but it took me almost quarter of an hour to compose this part of the letter, and that has been a painful cheese-less quarter of an hour. As I was, saying, I am addicted to cheese.
Spiced Onion Cheese
Fine Aged Cheddar
