25 Years of Warcraft Anniversary Video 8K Upscale 25 Years of Warcraft Anniversary Video 8K Upscale The last few Upscale videos haven't been that impressive, as the newer things they upgraded were already pretty good to start with, and I assumed this one would be the same. But, as the video has plenty of footage from older games, it's very much worth taking a look at, especially the comparison in the second half. Also it's a pretty good video in general, so why not check it out again: Blizzard Blizzard 4 comments Yesterday at 17:38 by Starym
All WoW Achievements Completed - A Xirev Interview All WoW Achievements Completed - A Xirev Interview We've all heard about the man who's finished the game very recently, getting all the currently available achievements and claiming that he can now finally play the game. What you may not have known is that this is his second time to do so, as he also finished Legion World First back when it was current! We took some time out to talk to Xirev about his impressive... ahem... achievement, and found out a whole lot more about his process. World of Warcraft WoW 3 comments Yesterday at 08:05 by Starym
Battle.net App Updated for Shadowlands Alpha Battle.net App Updated for Shadowlands Alpha Yesterday, we posted an update regarding Shadowlands Alpha and speculated that we might see it as early as next week. MMO-Champion noticed an update to the Battle.net App which made the wow_beta product no longer marked as deprecated and renamed it to Alpha which is obviously a good sign that Alpha is close.

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.

Is Shadowlands Alpha Coming Next Week? Is Shadowlands Alpha Coming Next Week? It seems Shadowlands Alpha has been delayed due to the coronavirus lockdown and the work-from-home policies implemented by BlizzardTowelliee recently teased on his stream that a dataminable Alpha client could become available as early as next week around Monday/Tuesday. Blizzard also increased the frequency of new builds, hinting they might want to have a playable Alpha up soon. World of Warcraft WoW 2 comments Apr 03, 2020 at 17:07 by Stan

Community April Fools Roundup Community April Fools Roundup We've already seen Blizzard's official April Fools, uh, I mean patch 8.8.8 notes, so now it's time to take a look at what the community has created for this special day. Let's start off with the WoW reddit itself, as it got slightly reforged, with the header being distorted (and asking you to activate Windows), and the font changed to comic sans.

Patch 8.8.8 Official Notes Patch 8.8.8 Official Notes Here come the traditional April Fools patch notes! This time it's patch 8.8.8, so Ion was correct in that we won't have 8.3.5 and are jumping a bit ahead! There's a whole lot new coming... some day... as we get Terrific Visions, new allied races in Mechatauren, High Dwarves and Kul Tiran Worgen, new M+ affixes, essences, micro-holidays, new flavors of Classic and a whole lot of (very serious) class changes!

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!

Make WoW Look Like a Painting Without Any Mods Make WoW Look Like a Painting Without Any Mods We have some more art-related content, but this time around it's not just fans painting their favorite characters, but actually transforming WoW into a painting - and without using any mod! Now, there's plenty of mods already out there that you can use to change the game's aesthetics, but with Blizzard's recent tightening of EULA enforcement, it could possibly be risky using some of them (although they've been mostly safe to use so far).

How Gold Farming in WoW Lead to the Steam Workshop How Gold Farming in WoW Lead to the Steam Workshop While it's no surprise many game developers and producers spent time playing WoW, hearing that Valve co-founder and internet santa Gabe Newell actually spent time intensively farming gold in it is slightly more surprising. While talking to Edge magazine (issue 344) he mentioned how, while doing research on games as productivity platforms, he decided to farm gold in World of Warcraft to see if it was worth it.

World First Prophet Skitra Normal Solo in Nyalotha by Rextroy World First Prophet Skitra Normal Solo in Ny'alotha by Rextroy Rextroy is back after a bit of a soloing absence, and he's gotten some gear ready in 8.3 - so naturally it was time to head into the current raid and solo a boss! Prophet Skitra is the second or third boss of the raid, depending on whether you pick her or Maut after Wrathion, and in this World First video we get a little extra explanation on how he did it by Rextroy (head to 5:36 in the video for that part).

You can also check out our in-depth interview with the man himself, as he goes over some of his more controversial tactics and discusses the difference between an exploit and creative use of game mechanics, as he had a bit of experience with the subject after being banned and unbanned for a solo kill he did (the 0.5 second Vectis kill).

There are some pretty cool discoveries he had to make about the boss mechanics to pull it off so it's definitely worth a watch:
