World of Warcraft Scam Site

While questing in Winterspring, I received a private message from ‘blizzard’ telling me I was a lucky player and would get a ‘surprise gift of the mysterious’ Geesh, does anyone believe this stuff? After watching the trade channel, I guess they do. Stories of people who’s accounts were hacked are all over the trade channel […]

Horde Dominates HKs but lacks defense

We had this game from the start, but, Horde got lazy. Alliance fought as a group, defended the nodes they took (Horde never does this), and beat us by playing smart. They didn’t have to top the HK charts to win, they held three bases and sent small 3 person groups to attack the nodes […]

1337 Armor, 2000 and 2806 Honor, and 73 Armor

However, many hunters hit Mend Pet only when their pet is about to die because healing their pet takes away from their DPS. Sure, PUG battlegrounds should […]
