Nothing is more sacred than your name in World of Warcraft. It’s the first thing players see about you, and the name your raid leader will shout when you stand in the fire and ruin the fight. Naming yourself is a task that you can’t rush, even in the excitement of Blizzard-run Classic servers. To prevent that kind of stress on day one, Blizzard opened up a piece of World of Warcraft Classic a little early. Players can now reserve their server, character class, race, and name. To start this process, you need to open the Battle.net client, find World of Warcraft, and change the version to World of Warcraft Classic. If you have multiple World of Warcraft accounts, you may need to change that as well. Then you need to install Classic to your PC, and hit play once it’s ready for launch. When you’re in the game, select a server, faction, race, and class. You can fully customize your character’s look as well as their name. After you create your character, you … [Read more...] about Here’s how to reserve your name for World of Warcraft Classic

The recent Rise of Azshara update may have thinking about jumping into World of Warcraft to see what the fuss is about—but as you'd expect with a game that is coming up to 15 years old, the sheer choice of classes might be a little overwhelming. Or perhaps you're returning to Blizzard's long-running MMO after a few years and are unsure how much things have changed. Read on for an overview of all the classes that are available, as well as their individual specialisations (specs).If you're new to AzerothWhile most players will be fine playing any of the classes that World of Warcraft has to offer, if you're planning on levelling solo there are certain classes and specs that will make things much easier on you—especially if you're new to MMOs. For example, ranged caster classes generally do a lot of damage but will require you to kite enemies or use crowd-control in order to survive, whereas a plate-wearing Paladin can take on half the zone without worrying too much about his … [Read more...] about World of Warcraft class guide: choose the best class for you
In a world where countless free-to-play games and games as a service compete for attention, World of Warcraft remains one of the most fascinating titles on the market. It’s a 15-year-old game that dominated a genre and inspired so many competitors who would ultimately fall short of WoW’s dizzying heights. The game’s previous expansion, Legion, was seen as a return to form. Battle for Azeroth, Blizzard’s current expansion, has been far messier. The antidote to many of the problems plaguing Battle for Azeroth was administered in the most recent content patch, Rise of Azshara. Patch 8.2, the midpoint in an expansion’s lifespan, bolsters Battle for Azeroth and is worth a return to the game for longtime WoW fans ... but it also reveals many of the structural weaknesses showing up in World of Warcraft as a whole. Let’s talk content One of the biggest complaints about the first third of Battle for Azeroth has been a lack of content — or rather, a … [Read more...] about Did Patch 8.2 solve World of Warcraft’s expansion woes?
World of Warcraft is no stranger to parodies, having been parodied in countless YouTube videos, songs, and even by South Park in the hilarious “Make Love, Not Warcraft Episode” from season 10. This time, the hit animated comedy series, Family Guy, who often jokes around with other video games, series, and movies, has taken a shot at World of Warcraft. A snippet from Season 16 Episode 10 of Family Guy shows how Peter, Cleveland, and Joe come up with an elaborate plan to escape a tight situation that they are in. Cleveland makes reference to pulling a “Leroy Jenkins,” which World of Warcraft fans are all too familiar with following the Leroy Jenkins video that went viral in 2005.Below is the snippet from Family Guy:Family Guy cleverly parodies the original Leroy Jenkins video almost word-for-word when Peter comes up with an elaborate plan to attack, and even asks Joe to “crunch some numbers,” which shows that the … [Read more...] about Watch Family Guy Parody World of Warcraft in Latest Episode
Peter, Brian, Stewie, and the rest of the Family Guy cast are heading to Azeroth. Fox confirmed a special World of Warcraft-themed episode will air this week. I feel like Peter Griffin might be a fan of World of Warcraft's bigger body representation. It’s a frankly stunning display of a company who are right on the pop-culture button. Indeed, it’s less than two years since the Warcraft movie had a less-than-stellar critical and commercial reception, back in 2016. Fox’s bravery in tackling an IP which clearly doesn’t resonate with middle America is astounding. Leeroooooy Jeeeeeenkins!!! Tune in Sunday at 9/8c on @FOXTV for some @Warcraft magic on #FamilyGuy. pic.twitter.com/EcLeP4UxT1— Family Guy (@FamilyGuyonFOX) March 26, 2018 For those keeping score at home, it’s also been more than 11 years since another beloved American cartoon series aired its own take on World of Warcraft. South Park’s ‘Make Love Not Warcraft’ aired in October … [Read more...] about Family Guy heads to World of Warcraft in this weekend’s episode
