VR painting in 3D—like this image of WoW’s Illidan Stormrage—is black magic, and no amount of demos or explanations will convince me otherwise.
Not everyone is happy with some of the changes made to World of Warcraft in preparation for the upcoming Legion expansion. Aside from some minor annoyances, I’ve been having a blast. Being Squirrel Girl helps.
Tomorrow Blizzard applies most of the major mechanical changes of Legion to World of Warcraft, giving players six weeks to get used to the new stuff before the expansion pack launches on August 30. What’s your plan of attack? Aside from leveling a gnome hunter, that is.
Launching with the Legion expansion pre-update later this month, World of Warcraft’s new silence penalty is designed to let players engaging in abusive or inappropriate chat dig their own incredibly quiet, ever-expanding grave.
The World of Warcraft community is abuzz over an infectious, gold-stealing scam affecting players across realms.
A lot of people have played World of Warcraft over the years, but not many have kept a diary of their entire experience with the game like reader Shawn Holmes has. He’s compiled over eight years of experience as a guild leader into a journal series that has just wound up.

Against my better instincts, I’m crossing my fingers for the Warcraft movie. It’s being directed by the guy behind Moon and Source Code. He is also technically a Bowie! If all else fails, though, when the dust settles, we’ll have at least gotten this cool in-game trailer out of it.
