Frozen Throne
WoW Archivist: Icecrown Citadel Was any raid in WoW ever anticipated as voraciously as Icecrown Citadel? Players had been eager to face the Lich King in person since the game was announced. The hype only intensified after the blockbuster reveal that players would travel to Northrend for the game’s second expansion. Ghostcrawler fed into it by stating (jokingly) that...

Everything we know about Hearthstone’s Knights of the Frozen Throne Hearthstone’s sixth expansion, Knights of the Frozen Throne, comes with 135 new cards and free solo missions against iconic bosses from Icecrown Citadel such as Lord Marrowgar, Professor Putricide, and the Lich King.

Instead, Raiding with Leashes 4 goes...

Know Your Lore: The wrath of Sylvanas Windrunner We looked at her life, her death, and her rise to become the Banshee Queen. But Sylvanas’ story didn’t end with the destruction of her Dreadlord enemies and the ascension to the throne of the Undercity. After bending the Nathrezim Varimathras to her will, she took steps to secure her power, both for her own sake...

We’re not sure we can call this tiny abomination “cute” Can an abomination be cute? With this super tiny abomination, we’re filing that one under “maybe.” Eostre — whom you can find on DeviantArt — decided to take Putricide’s Tiny Abomination in a Jar and make a real world version. And okay — despite the guts hanging out and the wide-eyed, slightly disturbing stare… anything this...

Breakfast Topic: How far will you go for WoW? A few weeks before Icecrown Citadel was released the officers of my raiding guild had this brilliant idea that we should all faction transfer to Alliance, and then — because our server was terribly imbalanced toward Horde — server transfer as well.
