World Of Warcraft Classic: Maybe You Can’t Go Home Again

My brother and I started taking World of Warcraft Classic seriously again two weeks ago. We both played during the mid-2000s Vanilla period—the era Classic attempts to replicate—and jumped into Classic last year, grinding to the mid-20s.

Tell Your Own Story With World of Warcraft: Shadowlands’ Improved Character Creator

World of Warcraft’s Latest Boss Finally Goes Down After Glitchy, 10-Day Race Between Top Guilds

The “Mythic” difficulty version of World of Warcraft’s latest raid, Ny’alotha, is a doozy.

I Level Boosted A New World Of Warcraft Character And It Felt Empty

Rather than leveling up a vulpera, which is a new character race introduced in last week’s Visions of N’Zoth update for World of Warcraft, I used a character boost I’d gotten with my preorder of the upcoming Shadowlands expansion. That gave me instant access to a fully-leveled fox critter. So now I’ve got a level […]

World Of Warcraft’s New Update Unleashes Eldritch Horrors On Azeroth

Twisted creatures from nightmare realms invade Azeroth in this week’s Visions of N’Zoth update for World of Warcraft.
