Fall of the Lich King Now Live

Fall of the Lich King, the latest World of Warcraft content update, is now live! The heroes of the Horde and the Alliance have faced unimaginable horrors and suffered terrible losses in their desperate struggle against the Scourge. Now the time has come to break through the fortified gates of Icecrown Citadel and confront the Lich King in the frozen heart of his domain. Follow Jaina Proudmoore or Sylvanas Windrunner through the Forge of Souls, Pit of Saron, and Halls of Reflection in an attempt to subvert the Lich King's army in a new multi-wing 5-player dungeon. Join the Ashen Verdict as they charge through the citadel's main gate to take on the Scourge's most powerful leaders and fearsome monstrosities in a new 10- and 25-player raid.

Awesome World of Warcraft Ads

Remember the days when World of Warcraft was somehow new (well, more like relevant compared to now)? The era when raiding was (IMHO) more fun and worth all the time an effort behind the computer monitor? The era when celebrities, awesome personalities and cool brands either endorse or use the game in commercials? Yeah, we miss those days too. So why not we do a barrel-roll over memory lane and check out some sweet World of Warcraft commercials that has shattered our television screens of pure awesomesauce.

Watch 'em after the break!

Dungeon Call to Arms Mechanic: Yay or Nay?

You've most likely heard that come World of Warcraft: Cataclysm Patch 4.1, we'll be having a new mechanic in the Random Dungeon Finder called "Call to Arms." For those who haven't it's simply like Battleground's Call to Arms mechanic which gives additional rewards to players who will participate in the specified battleground. The only difference here is that instead of a battleground (or dungeon in our case) being the factor of letting us get the additional rewards, it will be the party role you will be playing instead.
Blizzard is impletementing this system in an attempt to reduce the random dungeon finder wait time DPSers have often been ranting about eversince the beginning of Cataclysm.

April Fools from Blizzard; Meet Crabby and Omgsogoth

And sooo here we go again with Blizzard's yearly edition of April Fools. In celebration of the holiday (it's a holiday?) for the peasants that easily fall for the most scheming or most obvious of pranks, the company had no plans of celebrating it quietly as they introduce to us one hell of an annoying crab that looks like Microsoft Word's paperclip helper, Crabby, and a new instance that eats, speaks, and breathes emo allover, the Tomb of Immortal Darkness. To be honest though, this has got to be the lamest one yet, it's too obvious. But it's still a nice way to celebrate the festive occasion.

Yogg Saron Soloed Death Knight-Style!

It's just crazy how 5 levels make the difference. With Cataclysm blessing us with a level cap of 85, it's quite awesome to realize how easy stuffs in Wrath of the Lich King are right now, especially in raids! We can understand you can solo WOTLK quests and heroic dungeons now, but solo a raid boss? Well that's just crazy sauce! It was shown a couple of months ago how a Death Knight single handedly downed Lord Marrowgar, a boss in the Ice Crown Citadel raid which we in retrospec we considered hard, and now here's another Death Knight (or is it the same?) downing not just some easy squeezy boss in ICC, Trial of the Champions, or Ulduar, but the Old God Yogg-Saron himself! I didn't even know it was possible with all the adds and mind controlling, but leave it to a Death Knight (and most likely a Pally) to get the job done.

Hit the break to watch 10 minutes of awesomeness.

Firelands Raid Preview Screenshots Now Up! Hell is Coming Your Way

If you think the Throne of the Four Winds raid instance was a visual orgasm, well wait until you see the Firelands! With Al'Akir sitting comfortably up along with his clouds and skies, Ragnaros prefers things to be hot and sizzling as his fortress and the entire fire elemental plane is oozing with scorching hot magma. From what we've gathered from mmo-champion, the instance will have a total of 7 boss fights, 3 of which has been unveiled via Achievements panel. The 3 known boss fights are against (or with) the green drake Alysra, former Archdruid Fandral Staghelm, and of course, Ragnaros.
