My Thoughts on Losing at the Broken Shore – Minor Spoilers

Kaeson World of Warcraft, Writer Soap Box (Staff Editorials) Leave a Comment

This editorial may contain minor spoilers, but I’ll try to keep everything as general as possible for those that haven’t finished questing through the Broken Isles yet. One of the biggest complaints from Warlords of Draenor was the fact that we were pretty much the center of the universe. Holed up in our garrisons, we sat on our asses all …

Friend or Foe: Garrosh Hellscream

Frostcairn Writer Soap Box (Staff Editorials) Leave a Comment

Garrosh ruled with the iron fist of a tyrant. In his dream of restoring the Horde to its former glory, he made every member expendable. It is so easy to say that, for the sake of power, Garrosh Hellscream would stop at nothing. During the trial in Pandaria, Garrosh showed no remorse for his actions and, if anything, he seemed …

Combating Toxicity in the WoW Community

Kaeson Writer Soap Box (Staff Editorials) 1 Comment

If you’ve played WoW for any length of time, you’ve likely encountered your fair share of trolls, noobs, and all sorts of “interesting” players (I’m looking at you Moon Guard-US). With the successful advent of the Warcraft movie and the Legion prepatch looming just weeks away, many players are returning to WoW or are just now beginning their adventure for the …

Staying Occupied After Clearing Mythic Hellfire Citadel

Jaybee Writer Soap Box (Staff Editorials) Leave a Comment

World of Warcraft is deep into the 6.2.3 patch and many mythic raiders are having a hard time staying engaged. The rush of putting in hard work and getting progression kills with your team is a feeling that can be hard to get from anything else. If you are the type of mythic raider that lives for throwing your entire …

The Most Boring Raid Bosses in Each Expansion

ConjureVodka Writer Soap Box (Staff Editorials) Leave a Comment

World of Warcraft is supposed to be a fun, challenging game that encourages teamwork, communication and cooperation. However, the developers are still human and still fall short of the community’s expectations when it comes to difficulty, making a boss fight seem as routine as getting up in the morning. In my own personal opinion, here are some of the most boring raid …

Class Stacking and the Trivialization of Raid Mechanics

Jaybee Mass Resurrection (Raids), Role Check (Classes), Writer Soap Box (Staff Editorials) 1 Comment

World of Warcraft has reached the end of another expansion. For the past few months, more and more guilds have killed Mythic Archimonde and others have joined the ranks of guilds selling full Mythic HFC clears. My own guild has had Mythic Archimonde on farm since January and we started selling our own full clears a month ago. The sales …

Warrior Blurb: My Wish List for DPS Changes

Jaybee Role Check (Classes), World of Warcraft, Writer Soap Box (Staff Editorials) Leave a Comment

Warriors have seen several renditions so far in the alpha. With each new version, some problems get fixed while others become even more glaring. I wrote my first wish list back before alpha was released to give myself some comparison points as we progressed deeper into the alpha cycle. After nearly ten builds worth of class changes, I figure it’s not …

Warrior Blurb: Bladestorm Now and Going Forward

Jaybee Role Check (Classes), Writer Soap Box (Staff Editorials) Leave a Comment

Bladestorm has been a signature ability within the Warcraft universe for as long as it has existed. In Warcraft III, it was the very powerful ultimate ability of the Blademaster hero unit. In World of Warcraft, it was introduced as the 51 point talent in the Arms tree and remained just as powerful as its Warcraft III form. Mists of …
