Caithe of the Firstborn

It’s tough to talk about the sylvari because there’s still so much we don’t know about them. The newest of the playable races, they’re the only ones we haven’t encountered in Guild Wars and so we lack any hindsight for their existence or basis to really compare to. The state of their design also adds…

To Err is human… But That’s Why We Love ’em.

A little late on the train, but here goes! Ah, humans. It’s hard to imagine them being interesting; people are people. We are human, after all, and we’ve been playing humans in Guild Wars and other games for decades. But with the information handed to us this week, we’ve been given a little more insight…

Queen Jennah of Kryta

Spoiler Warning: This article contains significant spoilers for Edge of Destiny and minor spoilers for Ghosts of Ascalon.  And so it is: human week has concluded & we’ve got a lot of tasty information regarding the race as a whole. While we’ve been given a little more insight to their mysterious monarch Queen Jennah, she…

Seraph : The Second Soldier Profession of Guild Wars 2?

Warning: Minor spoilers for the two novels ensue. Disclaimer: This was written literally a few days before the Guardian release. That said, I still think the political implications still hold merit. So have fun with it. 🙂 I think we all figure at this point that the 2nd solider class is a paladin-like buff /…

Edge of Destiny Review & Character Analysis

Spoiler Warning: This article is spoiler-free up until the indicated point.  So I -finally- got around to finishing EoD. I know a few people were nervous since I gave Ghosts of Ascalon a pretty harsh assessment, but I’m happy to say that I very much enjoyed this book. It really blew GoA out of the water in…

The Female Characters of WoW and why they need work…

The way females are portrayed in video games is a long standing hot-topic that never fails to get the attention whores a-yappin’ while the majority of the gaming community just rolls their eyes in exasperation. That being said, it’s always a fun conversation to have among peers; you’ll have five people arguing and six different…

Garrosh Hellscream is a tool, and really needs a hug.

To be fair, as a counter to all my Varian hate, I decided to expand on my extreme distaste for Garrosh Hellscream. It’s only fair I pick on a fellow Hordie. As much as I love my faction, we are not without our toolbags. Now, in an attempt to give Varian some depth as a…

King Varian is a Tool, and You Can Too.

So my distaste for Varian has been long festering, and of course it started with bias. As a Hordie, anybody who runs around threatening my peeps gets put on my shit-list. A lot of my wow friends from my server, though, wanted me to sympathize with his sad and broken past. So out of respect…
