Since 2010, World of Warcraft players have been creating hordes of pink-haired level one gnomes and running them across Azeroth to support the fight against breast cancer. This year Blizzard is giving the event a boost with special decorations, a cheering crowd and its own special quest.
Hayven wasn’t like other World of Warcraft YouTubers. As he himself was quick to point out, his videos couldn’t teach people how to dole out DPS in raids or make rivals rage-weep in PVP. He was interested in the history of the 13-year-old MMO, and he did his best to chronicle it, even after he contracted a rare form…
Some secrets stay hidden for years. Others stay hidden for a couple weeks, but only because people collectively poured hundreds of hours into solving them.
Last month, Blizzard demanded $8.5 million from cheat maker Bossland as part of an ongoing legal battle. Now, in absence of any defense from the Honor Buddy (WoW) and Watchover Tyrant (Overwatch) creator, the court has sided with Blizzard.
Questing in World of Warcraft can be a slog. This is especially true during the game’s early levels, before you reach recent expansion content. Warcraft Tales is a mod that would’ve improved that with voice acting and more elaborate stories. I say “would’ve,” because well...
When you think about it, the troubled heroes and world of Warcraft is a perfect fit for a regicide simulator.
World of Warcraft’s massive Tomb of Sargeras update went live this week, giving players a chance to unlock the new Broken Shore zone and punch the demon invaders right in the junk. Here’s a quick look at how to do that when you’re a warlock who’s forgotten how to warlock.
World of Warcraft gets one of its biggest updates yet on Tuesday, as the Legion expansion’s demon war reaches a fever pitch. Update 7.2 gives players a chance to take the battle directly to the demons’ front door, when they aren’t busy learning to fly, battling through the pet dungeon or engaging in new PVP brawls.
World of Warcraft Redditor LawsuitEsq has crafted an eloquent answer to the question Felguard demons have been asking their Warlock masters over and over again since 2007. “Oh, I don’t know Zhevdarr. Take a wild fucking guess who summoned you. Again.”
Blizzard’s been waging a legal war against cheat maker Bossland, maker of prominent cheat programs for games like Overwatch, World of Warcraft, and Heroes of the Storm, for years. Bossland’s latest tactic? They’ve just stopped responding entirely.
It’s one thing to run a friend through a dungeon that might be a little too rough for them because you’re a Cool Pal. It’s something else entirely to do it for a rando and ask for real money in return. In World of Warcraft, the latter is unacceptable, and Blizzard’s started banning top players for it.
Thanks to a change in the way Blizzard’s WoW tokens work, players can now farm World of Warcraft gold and apply it towards credit for Overwatch loot boxes, Heroes of the Storm character unlocks and Hearthstone cards.
In World of Warcraft, major guilds race to pull off world firsts in new raids. It’s serious business. There are, however, limits. One member of a guild called Method thought it would be cool to sabotage another top guild’s efforts. It was not.
Yesterday, I posted about a Fallout 4 mod that uses a complex, intertwining network of, er, kitties to make radios work. Turns out, game development is full of stories like that. World of Warcraft, for instance, is overrun with ghost bunnies.
And it’s even called Wow! Recipe? The Meal Is Ready. Of course it is.
Heroes of the Storm released its latest hero, Valeera Sanguinar from World of Warcraft, onto the PTR on the 17th. However, some fans of HotS and WoW alike are disappointed in the character choice.
What goes up must come down. This indelible law of nature applies to precisely two things: gravity, which you may have heard of, and World of Warcraft legacy community Nostalrius. While the servers that hosted the new Nostalrius remain, all Nostalrius data is being removed from them.
The cow level has been ensconced in gaming lore since the hoary old days of Diablo, when it was a ridiculous rumor, and Diablo II, when Blizzard gave it life. It’s a gag that evolved into a rallying cry, a reminder of good times long-passed. Now, as part of Diablo’s 20th anniversary, it’s been added to World of…
