WoW’s patch 7.3 music is amazing Music is just one of the things that creates so many memories in WoW. The music in Legion has been great, but we didn’t really get anything new after the initial zone music, and one of the big disappointments was that the raids so far didn’t really have unique music. Argus is definitely making up...

WoW’s arena pros give tips in new series In Blizzard esports, World of Warcraft‘s Arena competitions have less visibility than most of the others.

Argus has several new Hunter pets to tame Sometimes it feels like the people at Wowhead and Petopia are out to get me. See, I’m married to a Hunter. She pretty much never players her alts. She’s been playing the same Hunter since launch day 2004, and she gets so excited when new pets become available to tame. So every time a post...

Blizzard unveils new spell animations in patch 7.3 Back at the start of Legion, we got new combat animations for each class.

Argus has its own lore museum to preserve its pre-Legion culture In patch 7.3, you’ll encounter the Krokul, the eredar who refused to join Sargeras on Argus. The invasion of the Army of the Light liberated some of the Krokul slaves, and they have been hiding from the Legion in Krokuun — where we arrive when we first land in Argus. The Krokul keep a small...

Does Jaina appearing on BlizzCon key art mean anything? Probably not Earlier this month, Blizzard Entertainment revealed Jaina Proudmoore will be representing World of Warcraft on this year’s BlizzCon key art. We’ve been debating whether or not this actually means anything for what’s to come in World of Warcraft — and honestly, probably not.
