Postcards from Azeroth – To Argus: Ahn’Qiraj

Ahn’Qiraj Ahn’Qiraj: The Fallen Kingdom is a zone in the extreme southwestern corner of Kalimdor. Originally it was technically part of Silithus, but inaccessible until Patch 1.9, when the famed event known as the Opening of the Gates of Ahn’Qiraj took place, unleashing the qiraji hordes upon the unsuspecting world. This was the culmination of a truly epic quest chain, […]


Repping with Leashes – August Celestials

August Celestials Thousands of years ago, Pandaria was ruled by emperors, the last one being Shaohao. Since his passing the four ancient guardians of Pandaria, the August Celestials, have taken over the role in a sort of joint caretakership. Chi-Ji the Red Crane, Niuzao the Black Ox, Xuen the White Tiger, and Yu’lon the Jade Serpent had a tough time […]


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. This year the Chinese New Year starts on 16 February, whereupon we transition from the Year of the Rooster to the Year of the Dog. Here are a few kitties enjoying (or perhaps not) the traditional trappings […]


Repping with Leashes – Santa Claus

Santa Claus Santa: The Hidden Rep Grind So, Christmas is now in the past, and now thoughts turn to face the next one, so I thought I would cover that rep grind that never seems to be covered by any guide — getting Exalted with Santa Claus.

Repping with Leashes – The Nightfallen

Nightfallen Back in my day, you had to grind through the emissaries or world quests to raise your reputation enough to keep going with this faction. Well, good news, everyone! That wall is now gone! So the first thing I would recommend to you is to go and quest through the zone. At this point there’s quite a bit of content, […]

Repping with Leashes – Court of Farondis

Court of Farondis The good thing about the Legion factions and their pets is that the best way to unlock them is to just properly quest in the related zones. 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? […]
