Video :: WoW Horders (Hoarders Parody)

You know, I don’t want to get into the habit of posting one person’s videos every time they’re released, but this parody of the hit television show Hoarders by the one and only WoWCrendor deserves as much love as it can possibly get on the Web.

If you’ve ever watched Hoarders, you’ll understand why this is so funny. And you’ll have the inexplicable urge to go clean out your character’s bank. Or at least roll a bank alt to keep all the crap.

Video :: PonyCraft 2

Okay, I simply have to give WoW Insider credit for introducing me to this video yesterday, and it’s simply glorious.

It has nothing to do with World of Warcraft, but it does have something to do with Blizzard – specifically with Starcraft 2, and if you haven’t played the original StarCraft, get ready for some spoilers. What? Seriously – StarCraft has been out for like 13 years – you don’t get to call spoiler on the original title. Thankfully, there are no spoilers for Starcraft 2 in the video, because…well…ponies.

If you want to see the source video that the audio was pulled from, it’s below. Honestly? I think they have the dubbing better with the ponies.

Video :: What is the Best Hunter Pet?

Ah, the eternal question: “What’s the best pet?” that so many hunters tend to ask, hoping for a very specific, magical answer for the one in-game beast that they should tame to meet all of their needs. Usually it starts off like the video does: “which pet is the best for raiding?” …which usually really translates to “which pet is the best to have with me at all times?”

This is probably the best treatment of the question I think I’ve ever seen. Well done.

Discussion :: How Do You Stay Motivated in WoW?

I admit, I have a bit of a problem. I’m losing motivation and interest in World of Warcraft. For most people, this would equate to a play-break; a time where they just don’t play for a while and then regain their interest slowly over time. That’s been working for me to some extent – I actually haven’t logged in for a while now and I’ve been toying with other games (ssh, don’t tell!) but I’m starting to wonder how the next time I start to feel a little down about the game that I can keep myself up and motivated to keep playing and having fun.

So, I figured I would ask you, fair readers: how do you stay motivated when playing World of Warcraft? How do you manage to log in regularly? Is it something you look forward to doing the moment you get home? Or maybe it’s something that you do for your friends and guild-mates? Maybe you’re passionate about the lore, or you’re passionate about role-playing?

What’s your secret sauce? Let us know in the comments.

Video :: Tank For Me Matteaus

I picked this one up over at WoW Insider today, so all credit goes to them for discovering it. Tank for Me Matteaus was originally supposed to be a simple celebration of Matteaus’ birthday and a thank you from his guild, Defenders of the Horde on Kilrogg [H] but it turned into something special. Something different. Something truly epic.

Watch, I think you’ll agree with me.

What’s Your Favorite WoW Weapon?

Each week over at The Blog Azeroth Forums, the community comes together around a shared blog topic – interested WoW bloggers can pick up the topic and make posts on their own sites to respond to it, and all of the responses are collected and linked at TwistedNether.net. “What Is Your Favorite Weapon?” is this week’s topic!

This week’s shared topic over at Blog Azeroth was a particularly fun one to think about. Kallixta asked the group:

I was comparing a new upgrade to my older item when it struck me how much I liked my old item. Like is wonderfully subjective and I hope others will explain their measure.

Is your favorite weapon something with strong memories for you? Is it something that just works well for RP purposes? Or maybe the balance of abilities meshes better than normal to your spec and play style?

Admittedly, I don’t do much RP, and I’m not exactly an endgame high-end raider who doesn’t have time to think about the looks and story behind a weapon because he’s too busy min/maxing to care, so I think I’m right there in the middle with those players who have fallen in love enough with a couple of his items that they simply won’t ever leave the bank. Here are a couple of them.

Discussion :: What Are Your Favorite Warcraft Webcomics?


(image above from Ding! by Scott Kurtz, of PVPOnline!)

So there’s no question that our love of World of Warcraft extends beyond the realm of the game…for a lot of us it’s a lifestyle, one that we enjoy even when we’re not in-game, or when we’re bored at the office. Thankfully, there’s a wealth of ways for us to stay on top of what’s going on in the WoW community, but there’s also lots of ways for us to entertain ourselves as well: webcomics!

There’s no shortage of World of Warcraft-themed webcomics on the Web, but we want to know what some of your favorites are. Let us know in the comments and we’ll post a roundup of them – including some of our favorites – next week!

Video :: What Happens During Server Maintenance

WoWCrendor is back again with a fantastic video that – I really hope – will silence the people who just can’t stop whining about server maintenance and wondering what’s happening behind the scenes during maintenance periods.

I mean seriously – it happens every single week, people. Aside from that? Just watch.

Raid Ready Wants Your Videos, Will Award Skittles to the Best

The fine folks at Raid Ready (who we spoke to a while back) have taken a break from making hilarious internet videos and ar eback to working on the Raid Ready service. In the interim though, they need some new videos, preferably from folks like you and I for whom sometimes World of Warcraft can be a little close to reality for some people’s comfort.

So, they’re looking for your videos! That’s right, YOU.

The video above outlines what they’re looking for and what’s at stake, namely a bag of delicious delicious skittles. And 6 months of pre-paid WoW game time, a 2009 Blizzcon Authenticator, and a Starcraft II poker set! But seriously, skittles!

Head over to the Raid Ready: Do It Yourself page for the full contest details and to find out how to enter!

Video :: Paladin Caramelldansen

The beauty of all of the whole caramelldansen meme is that regardless of what you’re a fan of, there’s likely a video of it. This can’t possibly be the first one related to World of Warcraft – heck, it’s not even the first one I’ve seen, but it’s definitely one of the most adorable. Maybe it helps that I play a Paladin.

Regardless, enjoy!
