Gnomes are taking back Gnomeregan!


 
With only a few months to go before Cataclysm finally hits the market, Blizzard has unveiled a new quest chain for the Alliance faction after the weekly maintenance, last night. The Alliance will have their hands full for a moment as they assist the beloved Gnomes in reclaiming what's rightfully theirs, the city of Gnomeregan!

In what I hope is a foreshadowing of a new capital or mini-capital city for the faction and a counter to the Horde Goblins' reconstruction of Azshara, High Tinker Mekkatorque will unveil the plans of his race in retaking what was lost during a civil war and the invasion of the butt-ugly Troggs.

Cataclysm Hunter Preview: Call Pet Ability

To recap for the non-Hunter reader, "Call Pet" is an ability where the Hunter summons a pet that is not sitting idly on the stable. Though barely used because a Hunter always have his pet by his side almost all the time, a player always find it valuable to dismiss a pet on certain situations and use Call Pet to re-summon his ferocious buddy.

Cataclysm Preview: Hunter Pets Claw Their Way Back

Hunter pets have gone a long way since the humble beginnings of World of Warcraft. Back during the vanilla days, Hunter pets were treated as weak, unhelpful, aka useless due to several reasons. But as the game evolved patch after patch, expansion after the next, Hunter pets have now become an important part of a group or raid as they add buffs for your resident Hunter to dish out wicked DPS in any meter. If the Hunter is a Beast Mastery, then all the more the pet needs to stay alive or get healed (hear that raid healers?).

But Ironforge, we’ve got a problem. A hunter’s specialty is to tame various beasts all over the face of Azeroth, why are we almost always seeing the same Northrend Worg every single end-game raid that we go into?

Cataclysm Zone Preview: Azshara Reborn

Ever since StarCraft 2 was out (Awesome game by the way, old school strategy games ROCK!) I expected to see less news on Cataclysm and the entire WOW-dom as Blizzard paves way to its newest release. I am right. But that doesn’t stop Azzor in giving you loyal fans a sneak preview of what is to come when Neltharion rocks Azeroth and the entire face of World of Warcraft gaming.
