Throwback Thursday – Deathwing Returns!

Deathwing Returns! Throwback Thursday is coming back, and we’re trialing something different! I take some event in Azeroth’s history and turn it into a front-page newspaper article for the well-renowned Azeroth Enquirer, written by those bastions of neutrality, the Gadgetzan Gobbos. This issue looks back on the return of a much-loved figure — at least if you’re a Twilight cultist.


Caturday – Chinese New Year

恭喜发财! Gōngxĭ fācái! For those who don’t understand Chinese, that apparently translates to ‘happiness and prosperity’, and is a common New Year greeting.

Here are a few kitties enjoying (or perhaps not) the traditional trappings […]

Repping with Leashes – Highmountain Tribe

Highmountain Tribe To start your quests in Legion for the Highmountain Tribe, naturally, it’s a good idea to go ahead and have the plan of getting Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, which will nicely familiarize yourself with the zone.

So, in this case, be sure you have the Azsuna Matata as you leveled, and if you didn’t get it, to go back and get it. Why do you care about Azsuna? […]

Repping with Leashes – Order of the Awakened

Order of the Awakened The main point of getting these guys done is just so you can fly in Warlords content. Fortunately, you only need them at Revered but if you want to press on, making sure you ignored all of the rare items around the world is essential. That’s because the quest they give you, called “Unseen Influence” given by Dawn-Seeker […]
