Repping with Leashes: Alliance Vanguard & Horde Expedition

Alliance Vanguard & Horde Expedition Alliance Vanguard and Horde Expedition In Wrath of the Lich King, when both Horde and Alliance forces moved upon the frosty continent of Northrend to fight the forces of the Lich King (among other things), adventurers found themselves working for two new factions: the Alliance Vanguard and the Horde Expedition. Each has a main base on both […]


Blizzcon 2016 Opening Ceremonies Recap

This year’s Blizzcon was full of huge milestones for the company and its games. The weekend opened up with a video montage showing the history of the company and the people involved for the past 25 years, ending with a hopeful “looking forward to the next 25 years with you”. Mike Morheim, President & CEO of Blizzard, gave the opening […]


Obalis – Grand Master Tamer

Obalis Hello everyone! Hope you’re enjoying Legion so far. This month we’re taking a look at Obalis, the Grand Master Tamer out in Uldum. I think the hardest things about his team are Pyth’s Vicious Fang and Spring’s Moth Dust, which is annoying from any enemy pet. Clatter doesn’t really have anything super difficult to counter. The most important thing I would […]


Caturday for Sept 24, 2016

It’s Caturday! Fall is here! Time for pumpkin everything, falling leaves, and cooler weather. To help you get in the mood here are some kitties who are totally prepared for Fall! Also, be sure to check out Brewfest in World of Warcraft. The event will be going on until October 6th. The Ram Racing is my favorite part of Brewfest… […]


Tiny Terrors – Defiled Earth

Hello, everyone! I hope you’re all gearing up for Legion! This month we’re covering one of the Tiny Terrors of Tanaan Jungle, Defiled Earth. While this strategy doesn’t work 100% of the time, it is typically a winner. One of the catches for the Tiny Terrors is that their backline pets are “random”. It appears that each week each server […]

Caturday – July 4th

Editor’s Note: As everyone knows, Caturdays are traditionally on Saturdays, but in reality, every day is Caturday! So on that note, here’s a Caturday: Special Edition! “God Bless America! Oh, say can you see by the dawn’s early light? La cucuracha! La cucuracha!” — some weird medley I can’t recall the performer of Yes, for those in the United States it […]


Postcards from Azeroth – Bloodmyst Isle

Bloodmyst Isle “That’s the problem with this country: everything is in red!” — Vladimir, in the 1997 Don Bluth film Anastasia Bloodmyst Isle is indeed quite red, covering almost the full spectrum of crimson hues. The island lies to the north of its larger neighbour, Azuremyst Isle. Both islands, and a number of smaller ones, lie far off the coast of […]


Repping with Leashes – Klaxxi

The Klaxxi The southwestern section of the land of Pandaria is dark and depressing, tainted by the Sha to such an extent that even the sky is affected by the black and white effects. These are the Dread Wastes, home to the mantid-like race of the Klaxxi. Players will encounter them sooner or later — unless they skip through Pandaria […]


Throwback Thursday – Talent Trees

Talent Trees Talent trees. Who remembers those wonderful flowcharts showing the different tiers of talents, and spending points on each to make themselves more powerful (or more useful to guilds)? I sure as heck don’t. I started playing WoW at the start of Mists of Pandaria, thus I never experienced the talent system as it used to be previously. After […]


Throwback Thursday – Dr. Weavil

Dr. Weavil What do you get when you combine a very belated April Fools joke and a look back at history? You get this: the strange story of Dr. Weavil. Once upon a time, there was a grub who had delusions of grandeur. Seeking to elevate himself above his more common brethren, he sought entrance into Stormwind University, and managed […]

Legion: What’s Next?

With 7.1 fresh off the shelf, it’s been hard to think what news Blizzard could possibly give us about the Legion expansion, and yet they keep on giving. The panel was opened with an announcement on a new design philosophy regarding patches. Rather than breaking up an expansion into separate stand-alone patches as has happened with previous expansions, they will […]


Blizzard 25th Anniversary: A Look Back

During Blizzcon, five people who have been with Blizzard since the very start spoke about their experiences with the company. The following video explains how the company has evolved over time with its unexpected success, and why Starcraft 2 took so long to be made. Footage is © Blizzard Entertainment.

Repping with Leashes – Sha’tari Defense / Laughing Skull

Sha’tari Defense/Laughing Skull It’s two for one time at Repping with Leashes! Well, actually it’s Horde v Alliance again for Warlords content. Like I’ve mentioned before, Warlords loves the rep grind aspect and these two garrison Trading Post related reputations are no different. Now that we’re in Legion, not having a trading post, in my opinion, would be folly so if you […]

Repping with Leashes – Council of Exarchs

Council of Exarchs After reviewing the starting faction Horde-side with the Frostwolf Orcs it’s only reasonable to now hop over the faction divide and take a look at the Council of Exarchs. Welcome, then, to the pristine version of Shadowmoon Valley! Unlike Horde-side, I was able to hop onto an alt who completed only Shadowmoon Valley, so this gives Horde players […]

Repping with Leashes – Frostwolf Orcs

Frostwolf Orcs My opinion of most of the Warlords factions is ‘welcome to the grind party.’ What’s fortunate about the Frostwolf Orcs is that they’re the Horde-side starter faction. You basically start questing for them the moment you step into Frostfire Ridge. Don’t worry, my Alliance friends, you have a mirror version of this faction with the Council of Exarchs, […]

Repping with Leashes – Steamwheedle Preservation Society

Steamwheedle Preservation Society This is probably one of my favorite factions of Warlords. One reason for that is that as a player you can pursue it with any character. ‘How?’ you may ask. Well, let’s cover the basics first. The first thing you want to do when pursuing this faction is simply quest in Nagrand (Draenor). Be sure you get […]

Repping with Leashes – Arakkoa Outcasts

Arakkoa Outcasts The next Warlords faction I’m going to hit is the Arakkoa Outcast because, like the Cartel, they have a garrison Bind-on-Account reputation item: Relic of Rukhmar. Therefore, the most effective way to get them to Revered (that’s all you need for the pet) is to ensure you’ve received the Spires questing achievement Between Arak and a Hard Place and […]
