Episode 112: "Flying Shipyards"

There will be flying in Draenor! Super-exciting news and a dramatic reversal from Blizzard! We'll all be able to fly—once we perform a handful of tasks...

Check your progress on WoWhead's wonderful tool here.

We go on to talk about preparing for Patch 6.2, including why you should get every single Apexis Crystal you can get your hands on before the patch drops. If you get the maximum, you'll have three iLevel 695 items on the first day! MMO Champion explains how.

We also judge the new Tier 18 outfits and find them actually quite surprising! If you want to see what your character looks like in the new outfits, use WoWhead's preview here.

Episode 100: "BA-BAM!"

It's episode 100—we're as surprised as you are! It's an action-packed episode! (Well...it's packed, anyway!)

February is a big month in WoW with lots going on!

Love Is in the Air! We talk about two new achievements for this year, one easy and the other is really hard! 

Here's the post by a guildie about how to get charms easy-peasy:

Every expansion has an easy way to make Lovely Charms for the Valentine's event, and WoD is no different. Go to Spires of Arak, 58.6 45.0 and kill Stingtail workers and drones. The mobs respawn almost instantly, and die like they're made of flash paper and balsa wood. I created over 500 charms in less than an hour. Extra bonus: bring a bodyguard from your garrison and level up his rep at the same time. i leveled Delvar from nearly 0 to maxed out while I was making charms

Look! It's the new Mystic Runesaber! There is major squee!

Eric changed the load out of his buildings in his Garrison to something that is better than nothing.

The Twitter integration is working in the PTR!

World of Warcraft: Chronicles is a new thing!
