Gearing Up IRL
2009/01/29 at 7:24 PM
All of us already know that WoW, and by extension Warcraft, is an exceedingly successful franchise. After all, we likely wouldn't be here if it wasn't. So with that in mind, I find myself wondering today about the numerous other sub-franchises that have sprung up around it.
Licensing is an amazing thing. You can get your guild crest printed on a

I submit to you the following question:
“Is your WoW character a violent person?”
Ostensibly, the answer would have to be yes, given that probably about 90% of what your character does involves fighting. And yet, I'm not exactly sure that needs to be the case. Is someone a “violent” character if they routinely use violence to accomplish goals that can

Recently I began digging around in various forums (both here at
and at other sites) trying to find a few good replies to the question, "What does it take to be a good DPS?"
Many players are still learning, or perhaps just started the game—and with over 11 million players, surely there are questions. My goal is to provide answers of a different color. Today I'm throwing out another (hopefully) thought-provoking entry. I originally planned it around damage dealers exclusively, but this entry can be applied to many roles (and in real life). And no, it was not conceived that way because I'm suffering from an influx of

Sorry it's a little late this weekend!
I have heard many tales of the new raid content being so surprisingly easy, and then the oh-so-experienced getting their bottoms handed back on a silver platter by the drake trio in
