Role Play: The art of herding cats Roleplaying is a social activity at heart, and sometimes people have a really hard time being social. That’s where the fine art of cat herding comes in – the ability to guide your guild and fellow roleplayers to moments that encourage that social aspect.

How to upgrade your Legendaries in WoW One of the features that came with Tomb of Sargeras was an upgrade to Legendaries: any Legendaries received since the raid released are ilevel 970, but that leaves our old Legendaries in desperate need of a little update.

Latest WoW hotfixes address Writhing Essence drops, Torch Tossing credit A short list of hotfixes for World of Warcraft have just been released, including a change to Writhing Essence drops.

Writhing Essences have now been changed to a new...

BlizzCaps: You put the load right on me, part two “I bet you always wanted to know what it would look like when mammoths jumped off Dalaran,” writes submitter Gimmlette. “Well, Spectacular Death on Llane (US-A) has you covered.

Latest WoW hotfixes feature a few class tweaks A small batch of hotfixes for World of Warcraft was released late last night for patch 7.2.5. It’s a very brief list, but Death Knights, Monks, and Warlocks all received some minor tweaks. Monks should take note that Zen Pilgrimage should now be working correctly and return you to your previous location when cast from...

BlizzCaps: You put the load right on me, part one “We all know WoW doesn’t exactly conform to known laws of physics, or biology, or, well, a great many scientific concepts,” writes submitter Gimmlette. “Spectacular Death of Llane (US-A) tried, because we talk about these things in guild chat, to see if we could influence a floating city merely by the application of weight.

BlizzCaps: And what’s on the other side? “Though I don’t often play Alliance, I just leveled my Druid to 110 and flew from Dalaran to the Class Hall rather than teleport,” writes submitter Armaiti of Amesha Spentas on Bronzebeard (US-A). “Apparently when the sun hits just right as you fly through Azsuna on an Arcanist’s Manasaber, it can transform into a rainbow...

Hotfixes rolling out tomorrow with more class tuning and bug fixes Patch 7.2.5 has already seen a lot of class tuning as Blizzard rushes to get the game ready for Tomb of Sargeras.

Legion PVP Season 4 begins, time to get your final PVP Artifact appearance Along with patch 7.2.5’s release last week, World of Warcraft also saw the release of Legion PVP Season 4. Outside of the usual rewards this season adds (listed below), Season 4 is notable for a couple other reasons. For one, its release means that Season 3 is the shortest PVP season we’ve ever had in...

Know Your Lore: The legacy of Tyr Alongside his "brother" Odyn, Tyr struck down Ragnaros and led the charge in battle after battle against the spawn of the Old Gods. Tyr helped chain those colossal monstrosities deep within the world and served as Azeroth was shaped to shepherd her world-soul to maturity.

BlizzCaps: A shadow of her former self “When she said she wanted a way to attack the Legion without them knowing, it seems the Gnomish engineers she hired didn’t put enough effort into the task,” writes submitter Gareth. Or maybe they were Goblins. Eh, they all look alike to her. Maybe they wanted a laugh, or maybe there are some implications about...

Zen Meditation: Patch 7.2.5 gives Monks the good, the bad, and the ugly {PB} With the arrival of patch 7.2.5, I’m sure many a Monk is stressing out. Should I be excited? Should I repec? Should I keep doing what I’m doing? The start of a patch with major class changes can be filled with decisions on whether to re-gem or re-enchant, and whether or not you want...

Webcomic Wrapup: You can always count on the bard It’s a shame we don’t have bards in World of Warcraft.
