Warhammer Online Beta Coming Up!!

It's been a good wait watching the development of this blossom into a true Warhammer game. Beta has just been announced at Warhammer Online's Official Site, in which they are picking guilds for the test. I hope whoever gets the chance to beta test this game really does a good job and nails out the bugs. I've been waiting for Warhammer to become a MMO for a very long time. I even followed the previous Warhammer Online which was being made by a different company until it stopped development.

Here's to hoping my guild named the Legion of Steel gets into beta, we've been waiting for this one for a long time. *crosses fingers*

World of Warcraft : Blood Elf Mask?

Alot of people wonder where they can pick one of these up. They are located in Azuremyst Isle and Wrathscale Point near the southern coast. Both the Alliance and the Horde can kill the Blood Elf Bandits to get these (They are not in the service of the Horde).

*Hint - For lower level characters, it's easier to drown yourself under the boat in Auberdine where you take to get to Valaar's Berth, and then respawn on top of it.

Hunter Pet Training for the Blood Elves?

Alot of new players seem to have no clue that at level 10, the Blood Elf Hunter can do a questline to get the ability to train pets. The person you need to speak to is Oninath, he's located in the Hunter training area in Silvermoon City in the north eastern area.

Trademarking Your Guild Name? Has It Gone Too Far?

When guilds start becoming living communities, is it right or wrong to trademark your name?

Uber Guild vs Zerg Guild? What is it?

People often confuse an Uber Guild with that of a Zerg Guild. A guild who's soul focus is to recruit as many people as possible to bloat their large memberbase and zerg the opposition. That is the generic definition of a true Zerg Guild. In the end, all the guild wants is large numbers by any means possible. An Uber guild is not a zerg guild, although an Uber Guild usually has a large membership and following behind it. They usually rely on skill, organization, and a large memberbase themsevlves but usually attain that over time through strict recruitment policies. Uber Guilds take next to no time at all to build up, but they usually implode as quickly as they were born. It's sort of like having a herd of horny bulls running amok all over the place with little direction, and breeding on a massive scale. lol. Yes, nice analogy huh? An Uber Guild has some sort of order to it, it has structure and a common cause. Some examples would be Fires of Heaven, Solidare, Afterlife, Legion of Steel, among many others. While the Zerg Guild burns bright but dies out just as fast, the Uber Guild is usually quite longlived.
