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… […]

Repping with Leashes – The Shado-Pan

The Shado-Pan The Shado-Pan are a small faction of pandaren warriors who dedicate their lives to the protection of Pandaria from the influence of the physical embodiments of negative emotions, the Sha. Since the mists shrouding the continent dissipated their job has become much harder due to the unleashing of the Sha upon Pandaria in nearly every area, promulgated in […]


Throwback Thursday – Pepitoz: The World of Warcraft Story

Pepitoz: The World of Warcraft Story World of Warcraft has a long history, and many things have been added or removed, keeping the game ‘fresh’. Also keeping the game fresh (and the developers busy) is the WoW community. Some of the more talented people of the community have, over the years, created works of art based on our favourite Azerothian game, […]


Postcards from Outland – Toshley’s Station

Toshley’s Station Did you notice the title graphic? That’s right, for the next few months, we’ll be featuring bucolic locations throughout Outland, from the sweeping plains of Nagrand, to the fel-infused barrens of Shadowmoon Valley, to the intensely purple remnants of Netherstorm. Our first foray into Outland visits the small Alliance settlement of Toshley’s Station, inhabited entirely by gnomes (which […]


Throwback Thursday – Azshara

Azshara Azshara, home for many centuries to a dreadful dynasty of scaly, serpentine naga: the Naga of Azshara. Legend has it that these former high elves can be destroyed by a sword through the heart, or exposure to Moonfire. This does not suffice, however, for they may be brought back to life by means of a secret rite that can […]


Caturday: Picnic Day

August 7 is Picnic Day in the Australian territory* of the Northern Territory. As such, it’s actually a Monday, but any day’s a good day for a picnic! Here are some lovely pics of our feline friends having picnic shenanigans. * Mainland Australia has six federated states, plus two territories: Northern Territory and the Australian Capital Territory (which also manages […]

It has been upgraded and reworked for ease of viewing. You can even favourite streams you want to watch, so as they become available to […]


Undocumented Changes to Prestige Pets

After the release of Patch 7.3, a change to Prestige Pets has come to light. Thanks to Eggs (EU) and Gráinne of Warcraft Pets, word has started getting out about the ability to purchase the prestige pets on your opposite faction. The pets cost 500 gold each and require only that you have unlocked the pet on one character, and […]

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 […]

Repping with Leashes – Hand of the Prophet & Vol’jin’s Headhunters

Hand of the Prophet & Vol’jin’s Headhunters Welcome to Tanaan Jungle, or World Quests 1.0. After the introduction quests here, it’s time to start repping up so you can fly. Sadly, neither of these faction-related factions actually offer pets, but they do offer transmog, toys and a mount. The quest to fly will help you get around Warlords content though, […]


Repping with Leashes – The Saberstalkers

The Saberstalkers If you want to fly in Draenor, these are one of three factions you’re going to need to get to Revered. Of the three, in my opinion, they’re one of the most straightforward, just because it involves just ‘killing all the things,’ similar to the Sha’tari Defense and Laughing Skull. If you want to go slower, but still […]

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, […]
