Introducing MMOUI Minion!
2009/05/06 at 12:09 AM
So our friends at
are rolling out a
exciting new project.
, and it's exactly what we've always wanted from an AddOn site—a simple, easy to use client that lets you manage your addons, update them all with a single click (or update them automatically when new versions come out), and does it all with the full permission of the authors and the sites involved—without gimping your features
your download speeds.
(who I'm a big fan of) and the team over there are just about to enter open beta, and they're looking for input from the Wowhead community. I'm looking forward to collecting a lot of feedback over here to give them—don't you guys let me down. ;)
We’ve got an FAQ for you guys here after the break (in addition to the more complete FAQ at WoWInterface
), as well as a couple of juicy screenshots after the break!

Blessing of Light
2009/05/05 at 12:06 AM
So, I have a problem, and maybe you can help me.
Warriors, Rogues, and Hunters draw their abilities from some amount of martial perfection. Mages and Warlocks derive their power from the demonic (yes mages too, read your lore), Shamans and Druids derive their power from nature, Death Knights from the Lich King, Paladins and Priests from the Light.
Now here's what gets me: As far as I can tell, the Lich King and the Light both couldn't care less if you're actually using their power to serve their own goals.
Wowhead Comic #19
2009/05/04 at 11:00 PM
I know this was supposed to be posted yesterday, but hey, we all have bad days.
is finally mine. Apart from the amazingly adorable chubby little piggy, my favourite part of this event is the
achievement. It's not difficult, doesn't have a story behind it, no special significance, it's just ironically mean. And that amuses me. Just one of those fun, selfish and silly achievements.
And so this week's comic has no joke, no punchline, etc. Just lots and lots of delicious and moist cake.
Late Post! (Interview with Malgayne)
2009/05/04 at 6:37 PM
So I did this a while ago, and I could have SWORN I posted about it, but apparently I didn't—so now I'm linking you to some VERY old news. But I would still be remiss if I didn't link you, no matter how embarrassed I am, so here we go:
I've recently done an interview for a WoW video podcast called

The Sanctum podcast is nearly three weeks old now, so feel free to check up on them there, and see how the show has evolved due to my evil influence. Feel free to leave your comments and questions here. :)

Children's Week 2009 (May 1 - May 7) - Quest Guide + Information!
2009/05/01 at 2:21 PM
Seldom in the World of Warcraft do we think that war is at hand, and for every fallen hero, there are a hundred commoners and civilians slain by beasts, agents of the Scourge, agents of the Old Gods, or even members of the opposite faction! In days like this, we, the heroes of Azeroth should take a bit of extra responsibility and do something beyond holding the monsters at bay, beyond slaughtering them, or restoring the health of our troops: we should take care of the numberless orphans left in the wake of this war.
Children's Week is upon us! A week in which we brave face a challenge greater than any undead monstrosity, a task more daunting than saving the world. We must become parents for all those orphans throughout Azeroth and make sure they are happy. We can't tank a child's fears, we can't heal its memories of pain, nor can we DPS the sorrow out of them. So equip your toys, make a mage conjure a candy table, fill your quiver with joy, load your gun with something colorful, and venture into the World of Parenting!
(Yes, the intro did come out as dramatic as you said it was, Argent

ZAM Rolls Out 'Free Realms' Site
2009/04/29 at 3:53 PM
So I know it's not always kosher to post non-WoW-related news up here, but I thought I would take the time to mention this one, because I'm personally kind of excited about this game.
For those of you who haven't heard yet, it's called
, and it's the most recent game from Sony Online Entertainment—the makers of the Everquest series, among several others. Free Realms is one of the first forays by a major US MMO publisher into the free-to-play space, and it actually looks pretty interesting. For once, here's a brand new major MMO that's NOT just trying to do the WoW thing in a different way—and since it's free, and it downloads and installs remarkably quickly, there's really no reason NOT to try it out. :)
Of course, when an awesome new game comes out, the folks here at the
have to cover it, so ZAM has just rolled out it's brand new
