PvP tips for new Hunters


Over the past few weeks I’ve been spending more of my time in battlegrounds and arena on my Rogue, as well as leveling yet another alt – a dirty Warlock. It’s only in the last couple of weeks that I’ve been able to find time for some regular PvP action. One thing I’ve noticed is [...]

Soloing Magtheridon’s Lair for fun and profit

Previously I have written about soloing old instances for fun and profit. Today I thought I'd write about a Burning Crusade era raid that, with patience, can be soloed quite easily by a level 85 character. I'm talking about Magtheridon's Lair. Read more...

The state of DPS following patch 4.0.6

With Patch 4.0.6 now live for almost a week there is enough data starting to trickle through to take a look at and see just who benefited the most from the patchy goodness.

The King is dead and the Cataclysm is here

I'm probably not the only one that is feeling Shattered right now. In case you've set up house under a rock, Cataclysm is here, it has happened.
