This post goes back a little more than a week because last week’s Suggested Reading was written in advance. This is also all from WoW Insider, although I swear I caught up on my other WoW blogs!
Around Azeroth: Mistaken identity, Elizabeth Wachowski, WoW Insider, 7/10/12.
I never expected an Around Azeroth post to make it here, but this is just so cute. It’s a screenshot of a gnome at the Darkmoon Faire competing with the NPC that ports players back to the cannon.
Know Your Lore: The final boss of Mists of Pandaria, Anne Stickney, WoW Insider, 7/15/12.
The Old Gods are known to cause destruction and chaos around them. Who’s causing destruction and chaos in the upcoming expansion? We are.
WoW Archivist: The evolution of Alterac Valley, Scott Andrews, WoW Insider, 7/13/12.
A great look at how Alterac Valley has changed. While they were clearly flaws in the original, and I’m glad I can do AV relatively quickly, this article does make me think that Blizzard’s has gone too far.
Reflections on moving from a PvP to a PvE realm, Matt Walsh, WoW Insider, 7/9/12.
After moving from a PVP to a PVE server, Matt realized he didn’t have to be afraid out in the world anymore, but it also felt like something was missing.
Team Matticus takes on the updated Pet Battle system, Matt Low, WoW Insider, 7/17/12.
Matt gives a tour of pet battles!
Grandpappy Frostheim on dumbing the game down, Brian Wood, WoW Insider, 7/12/12.
Is the game really getting easier, or is it just getting more accessible? Grindings not hard; it’s time-consuming.
Obsidian Nightwing now available as Recruit-A-Friend mount, Daniel Whitcomb, WoW Insider, 7/16/12.
Take a look at the new RAF mount.
48 dailies are 48 dailies too many, Olivia Grace, WoW Insider, 7/18/12.
There are up to 48 Mists of Pandaria dailies to do each day, and Olivia Grace thinks that’s 48 too many.
