southshore vs tarren mill
Southshore vs. Tarren Mill returns as PVP Brawl this week You remember the chaos of Southshore vs. Tarren Mill, both from vanilla and later released as part of World of Warcraft’s 10-year anniversary event.

What would get you to do that thing you hate? It’s no secret that I don’t like PvP in WoW and I haven’t since the Burning Crusade days. But I’ve been doing more of it in Legion. The thing is, I’ve simultaneously realized it’s the people I dislike (the ones who can’t stop ranting in obscenity-laden tirades when we’re one flag cap down in Warsong...

The Queue: Break some worlds

Absolutely one of my favorite weapons in WoW. If I was going to do a list of my favorite 2h’s, it would easily make the top five.

This is the Queue. Let’s begin.


Does WoW need more alternative play modes? Games like Heroes of the Storm, Hearthstone and Overwatch all have a variety of play modes because those games are primarily PvP experiences. World of Warcraft certainly has PvP, but much of the content is PvE, and as such, it’s got pretty well defined historically derived modes of play — there’s 5 player instances, world...

World of Warcraft hotfixes for February 21 The latest hotfixes focus primarily on PvP, with several specs getting alterations to their PvP templates as well as specific ability changes. In addition, Death Knights see significant PvE changes, along with some smaller changes for Paladins, Hunters, and Priests. Unholy DKs should be happy about the Virulent Plague change.
