WORLD OF WARCRAFT – BUBBLE DUB VIDEO

Okay, so my guildies and I have been really bored with the past few months leading up to the release of Cataclysm material. We’ve worked on Ulduar Hard Modes, getting ICC Heroics and world achievements, but I can’t say we’ve done anything THIS constructive:

I’m impressed with the timing they managed to pull off, firstly, but secondly… WTF! I have four level 80 Alliance and I still get lost in Stormwind. I hate that city! So I am actually mostly impressed with their positioning, lol.

Massive kudos to Dark Endeavor of Durotan for this fun video. Music credit: Billy Joel.

GIFT THE GIFT THAT KEEPS ON WOWING

I just hit Worldofwarcraft.com on my way to check out the forums and was completely blown away by the deal they’re having right now.

Check out this insanity! For $20 you can own the original vanilla WoW as well as the next two expansions. That’s three games, with thousands of hours worth of playtime, for the price of the first game!

There has never been a better time to start playing World of Warcraft, or to return to the game.  Azeroth just went up in flames last week with a major patch, giving us a ton of new stuff to play with, new and previously blocked off zones opened up to explore, a completely new 1-60 quest leveling experience, changes to race / class combinations and tons more.

Keep in mind you’ll still have to pay normal ($39.99) price for the expansion that’s coming out December 7th, but if you were curious about WoW, now’s the time to buy the old content you’ll need to play Cataclysm. This would also make a great gift for the holidays for someone you know who’s curious. Don’t forget, WoW also has a $15 monthly fee to play, so if you’re giving this as a gift, you might want to also consider a game card as part of your package.

Give the gift of WoW, or treat yourself! Come see Azeroth burn and help us fight Deathwing!

BREATHLESSLY WAITING FOR THE ELEMENTAL INVASION!!

So excited that Part 4 of the elemental invasion is live!! Standing in Stormwind with my guildmates and a ton of other players, just waiting for something to happen. We were hoping that it would start at the top of the hour, but 6pm came and went with no evacuations of the citizens and lower level characters.

Of course, some awesome person just threw down a train track, which was promptly dealt with by some nice person with a wrecker.

Here’s me, looking out at the sea of mammoths, on my trusty steed. I no has elephant on this toon, QQ.

I can’t help but find it a little bit morbidly amusing that a Worried Citizen keeps saying, “There must be someone who can help!” while we all just stand around squishing her with our mounts. Read the rest of this entry

W.O.W. NON-GAMER HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE

The holidays are coming up and you’re probably wondering what to get your favorite gamer. Being the materialistic fangirl that I am, I spend a lot of time looking at World of Warcraft schlock and paraphernalia. Here are a couple of standard gift ideas, as well as some more unique options, to show your uber l33t loved one that you support their passion 😉

I’m going to assume, since Cataclysm comes out light years before the holidays (in terms of how long a gamer can usually stand to wait on an expansion), that your gamer will already have this next edition to the game. However, if they don’t, this is where you’d want to start with them. Make sure that they also have the other two expansions leading up to Cat before splurging on the most recent one. If you know they’re raiding Lich King / ICC, then you’re all set. If they keep talking about Azeroth and the difficulties of trying to find other level 60s to play with, then you might be in for more of an investment than you were thinking.
