If you're looking forward to tomorrow's release of v8.1.5 and the addition of the Zandalari Trolls and Kul Tiran Humans, and if you would like to race change one of your existing characters, then today's news of a price cut in World of Warcraft Character Services may be of interest. Race Change, Faction Change and Character transfer are all on sale for 30% off. That means you can switch races for only $17.50 or switch factions completely for only $21.00. Let's not forget that 8.1.5 also includes the ability for players to have 50 characters per server so it's great news that character transfers are only $17.50 per character. Two new Allied Races—the Kul Tiran humans and Zandalari trolls—join the Battle for Azeroth on March 12. If you’re ready to recruit them and have been thinking about using one of our optional character services to play one, for a limited time we’re making it a little easier for you to make the change. Starting today, you can save 30% on a … [Read more...] about World of Warcraft Character Services Now On Sale Just in Time for 8.1.5 & New Allied Races
World of warcraft character transfer
Blizzard’s been really quiet about World of Warcraft: Classic since last November’s BlizzCon — at least until recently, when the studio posted a dev blog to talk about where it’s at with the project. The big news is that the team has decided on Patch 1.12 to be the foundation for Classic, which was a major question among the community. It went on to discuss the challenges and decisions to make the game work and bring its backend up to spec. I read it, interested for the news but also finding myself feeling rather cool toward the whole project. I mean, I’m glad it’s being done. I think there’s definitely an audience for a classic server, and it will no doubt bolster the game’s population and create an interesting sub-community of WoW players. But I’m pretty sure it’s not for me at all. Oh, I’ll try it. It’ll make for an interesting diversion and a blog post or two. That will put me in the crowd of tourists curious … [Read more...] about I’m cooling on the idea of World of Warcraft Classic
With about a month left until World of Warcraft delivers the pre-expansion patch (according to the community’s estimation), lots of people are scrambling to finish up content and get affairs in order for the expansion. I’ve got my two main characters ready to go, but as of late, I’ve been agonizing around one big question: Should I be spending this final month whipping a Horde alt into shape? In other words, is it worth having characters in both factions these days? Every time I look at this question, I keep drawing up the same pros and cons and finding myself stalemated. Yes, it takes Syp to stalemate Syp — I am my own fiercest competition. Initially, it seems like an “other faction” alt makes a lot of sense. You can experience unique content, areas, and flavor that lies on the other side. In Battle for Azeroth, there will be initial leveling zones dedicated to a single faction (at least at the start), not to mention specific scenarios (such as the … [Read more...] about World of Warcraft: Is it worth having characters in both factions?
This is the full version of entries that have been published in the last week! I just thought it might be nicer to have everything in one huge entry instead of in separate ones (either way: You can find all entries in the category labelled “rift vs. lotro vs. wow” on the right). The topic I wrote some time ago about “Rift vs. LotRO” is still getting readers almost every day. Unfortunately, it is probably not the kind of topic they were looking for. So, since I’ve played both games (at least for a little while), I thought I would make an elaborate posting about those games. I’m also going to throw in World of Warcraft because, apart from playing it as well, the big majority of MMO gamers have played the game or know something about the game, at least. :) (After starting to write this, I realised how long this entry would be in the end and decided to split it into different topics to be posted separately. So expect a posting every day for the next few … [Read more...] about Rift vs. LotRO vs. World of Warcraft – a closer look at all three MMOs (all entries in one)
As the month of November approached, I got to reminiscing about BlizzCon. For those of us that loved World of Warcraft and used to play it, the yearly BlizzCon event held by Blizzard was an obligatory annual MMORPG pilgrimage. Even long after I stopped playing, I would pay the $40 for the BlizzCon Virtual Ticket just to see the Blizzard artists and designers talk about their craft and a genre I love. This year I was seriously contemplating purchasing the BlizzCon 2016 PPV event dubbed by Blizzard as a cerebration of epic games and an epic community. But after reading reports that many of the World of Warcraft panels would not be live-streamed, I declined. After watching the opening ceremony and some of the panels on YouTube I am glad I didn’t waste my money. The BlizzCon that I was hoping would rekindle my passion for WoW wasn’t the BlizzCon I remembered. In the early days of BlizzCon, the fare was mostly about WoW. But the BlizzCon of today is all about e-sports and the … [Read more...] about World of Warcraft’s Diminishing Presence at BlizzCon 2016
