Hey! I’m coming across so many interesting tidbits about Wow Classic that I thought I’d start a weekly roundup of offsite links. We’ll see if there continue to be enough of them to justify a weekly post — stay tuned.
This is a surprisingly interesting article about lesser-known, and lesser-fully-understood, cities in Wow Classic. The Darrowshire story sparks my interest, but I doubt I’ll ever complete the quest line, which as mentioned, requires a full raid group.
I’m also drawn to the Dancing Troll City. I don’t think I remember it from the original game or Retail. Apparently it requires Slow Fall or Levitation or a similar skill to get there, so with Slow Fall, perhaps Ula will add it to her bucket list.
I’ve already complained at length about the topic, but one noteworthy aspect of this article is that the author agrees with me.
There aren’t any carnival games, and there’s no roller coaster to ride. To be frank, it’s honestly. . . drastically inferior to the modern version of the Faire.Kenny Kimberly, HappyGamer
And there you go.
The Boars’ own Wilhelm blogged about Blizzard’s financials this quarter, with obviously the most interesting point being that Bliz’s subscriptions doubled with the release of WoW Classic.
I do take issue with one of Wilhelm’s statements in the piece, however.

Oh, no. Just no.
This week Archimtiros informed us that the first two clears of Blackwing Lair were completed (nearly simultaneously, it seems) within the dungeon’s first hour live.
Several streamers also commented on the instance feeling easier than Molten Core overall, and some bosses flopped over in a matter of seconds . . .Archimtiros, Wowhead Classic
Flopping bosses? Maybe something is afoot after all!
Close at the heels of Lunar Festival, the next special in-game event is already upon us. And I think it’s a bit more entertaining than Darkmoon Faire. But will it be enough to appease the angry mobs of WoW re-subscribers who are disenchanted by game dynamics?
If you found something else share-worthy this week, please share it in the comments.
