WoW Dragonflight set to reduce XP required to hit 60 by over 50%

Level grinding in World of Warcraft is very much a Marmite experience. Some love it, levelling dozens of alts to max level in quick succession, others do it once per expansion and hate every second of it. In a move that’s probably good news for both camps, the latest expansion, Dragonflight, is set to reduce […]

WoW unkillable Felguard bug exploited in high-level Mythics

Earlier in the week we reported on a strange World of Warcraft bug, in which a warlock’s Felguard, the beefy Rinnrike, retained the buffs from a Torghast run even after leaving the roguelike dungeon. The player, hoping to avoid a suspension for using an exploit, made every effort to rid themselves of the unearned power-up, eventually successfully ridding […]

World of Warcraft survives and even prospers thanks to its highly engaged, knowledgeable, and, above all, opinionated player base.

WoW Dragonflight Rogue talents are getting an overhaul

The World of Warcraft Dragonflight Rogue class is set to get an overhaul when the expansion hits, with talent trees returning to the MMO game for the first time in several years.

World of Warcraft runs like a well-oiled machine, nearly two decades into its existence – but it’s not without its share of bugs.

Latest WoW raid tuning nerfs Sepulcher of the First Ones – again

The final World of Warcraft raid is usually designed to be more difficult than those that came before in the expansion, as you’d expect from a big last battle. There tends to be a significant gap between the final content drop and the next expansion, and it helps to keep WoW guildies engaged in the […]

Darkmoon Faire returns to WoW with a DDR-style dancing minigame

World of Warcraft world events are a curious beast, at once wildly exciting for new players and a humdrum carousel of recycled content for jaded veterans of the long-tenured MMO game. Having said that, Blizzard usually makes an effort to include some new content each time the calendar rolls around, and July’s WoW Darkmoon Faire […]

World of Warcraft reintroduced rare transmog helms for Prime Gaming

Collecting and World of Warcraft go together like chocolate and peanut butter. Mount and pet collecting have existed since the inception of WoW, but Blizzard are always introducing new tchotchkes to keep the collecting bug alive and well in the MMO game. Transmogrification first showed up over 10 years ago now, way back in Cataclysm, […]

WoW Classic Wrath of the Lich King will include “some changes”

The guiding philosophy in the development of Blizzard’s throw-back World of Warcraft spinoff, WoW Classic, can be summed up by the hashtag first popularised by the more die-hard members of the fan community: #NoChanges. WoW Classic was to provide an unsullied retro experience of the world’s most tenured MMO, and for the most part it […]
