If you tuned into the series premiere of Azeroth Choppers last week, you’ll recall that Paul and the gang were left with a major problem. Unfortunately, we, the audience, were not privvy to that information. Episode two is now available and explains all that and more. This episode also shows continued work on the bikes and, while I’m admittedly skeptical about the show’s premise, there’s no denying that the bikes do look fairly badass. You can check out episode two below....

In my last article, I asked what World of Warcraft can learn from its newest rival – Carbine’s upcoming sci-fi MMO, Wildstar. While the game includes a lot of MMO staples – group quests, levels, dungeons and raids – it takes a new tack in its implementation. Wildstar has other positives that weren’t covered last time, but I’ve also included the game’s negative aspects – some of which would be very familiar to a vanilla WoW player. Side-note: Since my last article on Wildstar, I took part in the Easter open beta weekend. 7. Paths Path of the Titans (PotT) was a system of character progression that was originally going to be part of the Cataclysm expansion. It was a way to increase character power through regular activities, like questing, PvP and professions, and to make you different from Mage #30,463. While PotT was cancelled, Wildstar has a similar system – although unrelated to character power ...

Episode 16: BlizzCon 2014, PAX East, and WoW Source Welcome to Episode 16 of The Edge! The first major news? BlizzCon 2014 has officially been announced! It’ll be held in Anaheim on the weekend of November 7th to 8th. Speaking of conventions, PAX East was held not too long ago and the big news out of that was around Hearthstone and the upcoming adventure mode involving Curse of Naxxramas. Since The Edge is about class information and improvement, we kick off a multi-part series explaining the new updates coming with each class and spec. Last week, Matt examined the priest. In this episode, Alex goes over Monks....

Glorious coffeebird Community Manager Rygarius has served up the latest tweaks in today’s Hotfix blog. Read on for some improvements on Malkorok and Garrosh, as well the lamentable nerfing of longtime Alchemy moneymaker, the Potion of Luck.

Garrosh Hellscream During the Garrosh Hellscream encounter, Word of Glory no longer generates threat during stages 2 and 3 to address an issue that was making the encounter more difficult than intended for raid groups with Protection Paladin tanks. Unstable Iron Stars now Fixate on players for 12 seconds (up from 10 seconds) during stage 4 ...

In case you missed it (and who could blame you with the sudden announcement of OMGWTFBBQ BLIZZCON that came essentially five minutes after this video was posted this morning) Morgan Webb returns with another WoW Source video, talking with a modified triumvirate of Blizzard devs about a set of reveals and outsourced questions on Warlords of Draenor. New information is somewhat scarce, but what’s more substantial about the video is what points the devs are trying to hammer home and what concepts they’re trying to distance themselves from. Today’s contestants on “who can drop the most science to wow the Webb” are Lead Encounter Designer and malicious eyeball Ion “Watcher” Hazzikostas, Lead Class Designer and murloc aficionado Kris Zierhut, and Senior Game Designer and minor PVP deity Brian Holinka. Highlights include the following: The PVP zone Ashran will be dramatically different from past PVP zones like Tol Barad and Wintergrasp, and ...

The other day I was playing around with Wowhead’s Profiler tool, and by importing my own personal dwarf and gnome character profiles I was able to view them as they will look come Warlords of Draenor. Like the rest of you I had seen the previews Blizzard released, but seeing my own characters with the new models was a surreal experience. Despite being very excited and generally positive to the new models, my initial reaction was hesitation and dislike. I’ve been wanting new character models since I started playing World of Warcraft back in 2009, feeling then that my human priest looked about as exciting as a tree log, so why wasn’t I happy to see my characters in their new skins? Well, after a few minutes I started to get used to the idea of how they looked. I think it’s very natural for people to react negatively to ...
