\/sigh...So here I am, writing a blog post when I should be studying for a chemistry and physics final for next week.\r
I've got a question for you all who go to school, or even those who go to work (wait, those things don't happen if you play WoW!): How do you balance WoW (or another video game of your choice) with the obligations you have in real life?

2009/05/15 at 5:27 PM
We continue to tinker away in the background, and we've made a few small updates today that we wanted to make sure you knew about!\r
We've added the
(as well as the long overdue
Wintergrasp Mark of Honor
) to the list of items on the "Purchaseable With" filter! Try it out here: Purchaseable with Champion's Seal and Purchaseable with Wintergrasp Mark of Honor\r
We've also added an Obtained via Milling filter to the list!\r
Not to mention of course, we're constantly updating the list of items found in Ulduar with fresh new data!\r
For all those of you in the process of clearing Ulduar right now, especially the hard modes: Please be sure to run, and upload, from the Wowhead Client! It's the only way we get these pages updated! :D
Not Enough Hotkeys? The Secret Art of Palm-Pressing
2009/05/14 at 6:36 PM
Standard keyboard with extended CTRL buttonsWishing you had a way to get more keys in-game? I had a tough time managing key binds over the years. Eventually I developed a method I like to call palm-pressing. Through this technique, I am able to multiply the amount of buttons my fingers push. Interested?\r
Wowhead: More Static to You
2009/05/13 at 10:30 PM
Shocking!The development team here at Wowhead has made some changes to the way we serve up static content on our servers. We have been moving files that do not change often (such as images) to a new server to help improve the performance of the site. Today, we completed that move. \r
For those of you who are using the Powered by Wowhead tooltips or the Spread Wowhead logos or search boxes, you should update your pages to take advantage of this performance gain.\r
Religion in WoW
2009/05/13 at 5:23 PM
The Stormwind Cathedral\u2014seat of power for the Church of the Holy LightSome of you may have wondered, what are the different religions in the world of Azeroth? Well, in this blog I will discuss a few of those religions. There are seven major religions with a few more minor ones. The seven major religions are\r
Church of the Holy Light\r
Worship of Elune\r
Mystery of the Makers\r
Followers of the Old Gods\r
Cult of Forgotten Shadow\r
...with the most prominent of these religions (probably) being the Church of the Holy Light.\r
Follow us after the break for a little lore-lesson!
Costume Contest for Blizzard EU!
2009/05/13 at 5:12 PM
Blizzard!So being US-based, we wind up running a lot of contests that are US-only, and I know our non US-based community feels a little left out sometimes, so I figured I'd let you guys know about an opportunity to turn the tables on us. :)\r
Blizzard EU is having a Costume Contest! Any of you who are interested in going to Blizzcon, and (like many of us) are doubtful of your ability to secure tickets when they go on sale this weekend, consider this contest a second chance!\r
The full details are on the contest page here:\r

Check them out over at our Spanish Naxxramas page!\r
Maintenance Complainers: Justified?
2009/05/12 at 1:09 PM
ME SMASH!Every single Tuesday on North American servers and every single Wednesday on EU servers, Blizzard takes down their servers for maintenance. Sometimes it's for full maintenance, and other times it's for rolling restarts. Since this has been the normal routine for over four years now, one thing really confuses me. It's not the fact that Blizzard even does maintenance in the first place; rather, what confuses me is the fact that players still complain about it. It makes me wonder why they complain about in the first place, and if they've not found a way to cope with the 6-8 hour inconvenience. \r
Let's venture into the realm of possibilities!
Thinking About Other MMOs? Me, Too
2009/05/11 at 10:18 PM
Deep in thought, possibly about other MMOs?It started when World of Warcraft was released and it didn't take long for me to become an obsessed fan, a hardcore player spending hours upon hours in Azeroth every day. Lately though, I've burned out and play less than ever. The thing is, I miss adventure. Have you ever thought about playing another massively multi-player online game (MMO)? I have.\r
And it isn't difficult to understand a large number of WoW players are casual gamers. It should come as no surprise that, for a game we subscribe to monthly, many players put a lot of time into their characters. Do casual gamers get tired of playing the same game even though they invest fewer hours per week?\r
Unbeknown to myself, I recently discovered a plethora of MMO choices floating around the Internet. No doubt some of you have heard of games such as Vanguard or Warhammer, games which were supposed to dethrone World of Warcraft after their release (yet failed to do so). But how many of you have heard of the game Perfect World International, the English adaptation of a popular Chinese MMO sequel? It's a free to pla
Breaking News: Applebee's to Open Up In Storm Peaks!
2009/05/11 at 2:14 PM
The following is based on completely true facts. No part of this story has been doctored in any way, shape or form.\r
Chef Valkyr\u201cYes! Home from class early.\u201d I run into my room and throw my bag on the floor, and jump on my computer. \u201cCome on you stupid computer, load faster.\u201d I put in my user name and password and off I go\u2014I log in to find my Paladin in Storm Peaks, just where I had left him. \u201cAlright, time to get my artisan flying, stop being lazy,\u201d I tell myself, but who am I to kid? It\u2019s not going to happen anytime soon. Too many shiny things to buy, so little gold to spend on them! I mount up; grab the reins of my\u2026wooden mechanical flying machine, and whoooosh! Off I go at a moderate pace into the abyss.\r
Creak, crack, clank goes my flying machine. I\u2019ve loved this thing since the day I spent way too much gold at the auction house to craft it. How I daydream as I\u2019m flying towards Naxxramas and all my guild mates are flying past me at incredible speeds of the day I get to fly my epic mechanical flying machine, complete with hula girl doll, wind whipping through my long, flowing beard. Maybe if I just paint the face myself, and
Wowhead Weekly Review (May 3 - May 9)
2009/05/10 at 2:54 PM
With apologies to Pink Kryptonite.Dear readers,\r
Welcome once again to the ninth Wowhead Weekly Review and the second one to be posted as a blog! If you missed the previous one, go here.\r
Let's see if this week has come something special to offer...\r

Gamers Are Normal? Shh, Don't tell!
2009/05/08 at 9:34 PM
Normal people, doing normal things.Do you know someone who plays games, but isn't really a gamer? I've met a lot of what I like to call \u201cnormal\u201d people in Azeroth. But wait, normal you say? Playing World of Warcraft? How can this be?!\r
All kinds of people play WoW. People who are new to online gaming, or video and computer games period, have been constantly flocking toward what I consider the most full-featured and accessible MMO built to date. The number of people who had, previously, never ventured beyond Solitaire on Windows 3.1 is impressive. Now they're raiding and getting phat lewtz every week. How awesome is that?\r
Of course, everyone knows we gamers are far from normal. We fly around on mystical dragons, take magic carpet rides, and yes--we even have neighbors who waggle when they walk (sometimes named Noxychu). So what exactly is normal when we're all responsible for this madness?\r
What exactly do you define as a \u201cnormal\u201d person? Do you hide your gaming habits from others?
