Breakfast Topic: Garrisons and gold-making
At this stage in Warlords of Draenor, it’s no secret that garrisons generate enormous amounts of gold for their players.
Plaguebearer: Chains of Sindragosa
The term "Chains of Sindragosa" refers to a Blood DK playstyle that, as the name might suggest, involves the Breath of Sindragosa talent.

Over the past week, I’ve come to the realization that properly making my cause requires tackling multiple issues- far more than a single article could hope to handle.
Plaguebearer: Frost Runes and resource conundrums, oh my!
