Come See Our WoW Timeline: Heroic Edition

The Escapist has compiled a list of the most legendary events to occur in WoW since its inception. Come take a look.



Do you know the exact date when WoW first launched? Too easy? How about which patch finally made clam loot stackable? Or the first time the Lich King was killable in a dungeon? If any of these questions have piqued your interest - or if you want to check your vast wealth of knowledge against ours - check out our epic WoW Timeline: The Heroic Edition [http://www.escapistmagazine.com/content/wowtimeline].

This timeline was lovingly crafted with The Escapist staff's own blood, sweat and tears. We may have even sacrificed a goat or two to the gods of Blizzard. In any case, head over to the timeline, and enjoy!

There was a machinima contest in WoW? Who won?
What a rich history this game has... Too bad my MMORPG soul already belongs to Champions Online and The Old Republic, when it comes out.

"Axen of the US guild Risen is the first player to receive corrupted Ashbringer, a drop from the Four Horsemen in Naxxramas. The Corrupted Ashbringer can be transformed into the legendary blade Ashbringer via a quest. "

The quest never got implemented.

A note about the celestial steed. It does not go 310%, it can go up TO 310% if you have a mount that goes that speed, but otherwise, it scales to your skill at 280% or 150%.

Haha. I loved reading about the Corrupted Blood "plague". I had forgotten about that.

That item paled in in comparison to the awesomeness of Sulfuras, Hand of Ragnaros [http://www.wowwiki.com/Sulfuras,_Hand_of_Ragnaros], it seems it wasn't newsworthy as well *shrug*.

OT: Hehehe, I've yet to see a single player in WoW use that voicechat feature they added, long live vent!

Loved the voice chat patch comment: "No one cares." XD

Anyway, really interesting timeline. I didn't even know some of this stuff. Good work on assembling it all.

How can the blood plague of this Haggar guy, who gives it when he dies, come around BEFORE he has been downed for the first time?

So... just out of idle curiosity, how long until "The Escapist" becomes "The WoWest"?

Every single day there is some article about WoW on this website. Today I think I counted 3. Possibly 4.

I play WoW. I even LIKE WoW. But for the love of all that is Holy Specced, please, guys/gals. Stop it. There are other things to talk about, and no matter HOW many people play this game, and no matter WHAT it has done for MMO's in general, it does NOT need this kind of slavish devotion aura.


Escapist, you can do better. Ive seen you do better. WoW doesnt need day-by-day coverage. Thats what the Blizzard Loading Screen is for.


Whiskey Echo!!
