Pacifist hits World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands’ level cap by picking flowers

World Of Warcraft's best story doesn't concern old gods, banshee queens or gruff orc heroes. Rather, it involves one panda's stubborn determination to drop the "War" from "Warcraft". Having not once picked up a sword, left the starting zone or even pledged allegiance to the Alliance or Horde, WoW player DoubleAgent has now hit the Shadowlands level cap doing nought but pick flowers for eighteen…

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands is “the fastest-selling PC game of all time”, Blizzard claim

As the latest expansion for Blizzard's unstoppable MMORPG, World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands seems to have gone down quite well. So well, in fact, that the publishers have declared it the fastest-selling PC game ever released with 3.7 million first day sales, beating out the company's own previous record-holder, Diablo 3, beating out its 3.5 million day one sales high set all the way back in…

This Warcraft fan-film recasts Cyberpunk 2077 with orcs and goblins

It wouldn't take too much to push World Of Warcraft in a cyberpunk direction. After all, Blizzard's increasingly comic-book plot has already taken us far beyond the simple scuffle of orcs and humans with time-travelling, alternate universes and honest-to-god spaceships. Now, a fan-made trailer reimagines the game set in the grim, neon-splattered streets of Cyberpunk 2077's Night City - albeit, a version of the dystopian…

World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands level cap was smashed in a brisk three hours

Study / relax / raid the underworld with these lo-fi Warcraft beats

One of the smaller frustrations that come with writing for a living is that you really can't listen to music with lyrics while working. So, for the past few years, I've listened to every "24/7 lo-fi jazz-hop beats to study and relax to" mix the that exists, a thousand variations of some Sisyphean student cursed to forever turn pages to the sound of chill, non-distinct…

Return to World Of Warcraft for free ’til Monday

Just when you think you're out, World Of Warcraft finds a way to drag you back in. Briefly, at least.

World Of Warcraft is cracking down on multiboxing abuse

Ah yes, a tale as old as time—or at least as old as old-school MMO players. You've got multiple World Of Warcraft accounts, for one reason or another, and are "multiboxing" to sign in to both accounts simultaneously. Blizzard have updated their policy on multiboxing to clarify that multiple instances of the game are fine, but they'll be issuing warnings and bans to players using…

Blizzard celebrate “incredible decrease” in toxic chat

In a new virtual 'fireside chat', Blizzard head honcho J. Allen Brack has given an update on the success of their anti-toxicity systems. They've been using machine learning to help combat abusive chat and bad behaviour in Overwatch and Heroes Of The Storm for a while, and recently brought the system to World Of Warcraft's public channels. It sounds like a success there too. Brack…

World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands dives into the afterlife next month

We're back on track for a trip to hell, adventurers. After last month's delay failed to give us a new release date, Blizzard are now confident in their ability to deliver World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands by the end of November. It's not the Halloween launch I imagine they were hoping for, but hey - what better way to close out this year than by yeeting…

While World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands is delayed, the pre-expansion patch introducing many of its big changes has arrived. Here's one to start: WoW's level cap is now 50. It's come all the way the down from 120 as Blizzard rescale everything. The new starter zone is in too, easing newbies in on a new island.

Blizzard have delayed World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands

Sorry, death. With the news that World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands has been delayed out of its October launch, it looks like we'll be avoiding the grave a little while longer. Blizzard today announced they've pushed their behemoth MMO's next expansion back to "later this year" to give the underworld a bit more polish as developers continue to deal with the weirdness of remote working.

BlizzCon Online is scheduled for February 2021

As with most other physical conventions this year, BlizzCon 2020 is cancelled due to the Covid-19 coronavirus pandemic. Blizzard said that they wanted to take the con online but didn't think they'd be able to squeeze it into this calendar year. They were right on that front, but you won't be waiting until next November for the con to return. Honorary BlizzCon 2020 will now officially…

World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands minimum PC requirements now include HDDs again

After yesterday's kerfuffle over World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands' PC requirements listing an SSD as the minimum type of storage supported, Blizzard have now updated the game's minimum requirements to include good old-fashioned HDDs as well. In their updated support article on the subject, the storage entry for WOW's Shadowlands expansion now includes both SSDs and HDDs, with the extra clarification that "player experience may be…

World Of Warcraft: Shadowlands PC requirements calls for an SSD

World Of Warcraft's Shadowlands expansion is getting a formal release on October 27th, but Blizzard's recently updated PC requirements for the game have been causing quite a stink among its player base. While the minimum CPU and GPU requirements haven't changed all that much, the minimum storage requirement now seems to imply that you need an SSD to play WOW's Shadowlands expansion rather than a…

Brought your bug repellant, adventurers? World Of Warcraft Classic is going back to Silithus to revisit the game's most notorious bug hunt. Today's update for the throwback MMO is preparing to re-open the lost Silithid empire of Ahn'Qiraj - which is to say that the long and arduous task of funding an army, piecing together an ancient staff worthy of a Scarab Lord, and knocking…

Who needs clothes to kill WoW Classic’s biggest dragon, anyway?

Onyxia, Broodmother of the Black Dragonflight. If you're a veteran World Of Warcraft player, that name will immediately conjure long-buried feelings of dread - from the precision play needed to take her down, to the hours spent grinding quests to even enter her lair. But Azeroth's scariest dragon seems to have lost her touch, as a band of 40 World Of Warcraft: Classic adventurers worked…
