News and Guides for WoW Classic

The Blizzard April Fools Archive and Highlights The Blizzard April Fools Archive and Highlights After the recent re-emergence of the one day a year that's officially allowed to be funny and the official Blizzard patch notes that came with it, we wanted to go back and check out older editions of this now tradition. It turns out Blizzard actually has an archive for their April Fools posts, which is good news, but they also stopped updating it in 2015, which is bad news.

The Best WarCraft Meme(s) of All Time The Best WarCraft Meme(s) of All Time Now, this isn't actually related to April Fools (and we'll be doing a roundup of all the crazy stuff related to that at the end of the day), but it seemed appropriate to get into the humorous mood of the day. Everyone will have probably seen this one at some point, as it's a very old one, but it's still one of the best memes/copypasta that's every been in WarCraft, and we have it reforged to boot! This latest version adds quite a bit to the classic, and itself has been around a while, but I'd dare say it's the best version of the joke so far.

Full disclosure: I've been looking for a reason to post this one for months now. Thanks April Fools!

Rallying Cry of the Dragonslayer Resets to Stay as They Are for Now Rallying Cry of the Dragonslayer Resets to Stay as They Are for Now This is a pretty weird and very specific one: a lot of people have been resetting the Rallying Cry of the Dragonslayer buff you get from killing Onyxia or Nefarian and getting to reuse the heads again. This is being done by a Priest of the opposing faction mind controlling the npc mid-event and then the players who started the event killing him. In case you weren't aware, the heads from the bosses only drop for the first kill and there's a possibility of a shortage on servers, so this technique is very useful.
