Featured Article: Managing Editor Jon Wood had the opportunity recently to sit down and speak with Age of Conan Director Craig Morrison about the about-to-be released Ymir's Pass update that will see a new zone and mroe added to the game. How much content will be added to Age of Conan with Ymir's Pass both in terms of number of quests and time commitment?

Craig Morrison: In terms of quests there are dozens upon dozens of quests in the play-field. It's also the largest, and I think the most impressive, playfield we have added to the game-world. It has the largest population of NPCs, camps and encounters. You could in theory play through almost ten levels of game-play just in this area if you wanted to, so there is a lot of content there, and that's before you consider there is a new dungeon as well!

You can read the full article here.

Guide Spotlight: WoW Rogue Talents

Rogue talents are divided into three trees: Assassination, Combat, and Subtlety. You don't get your first talent point until level 10 and once you're at 80, that's 71 talent points to spend across the trees. This keeps Rogue builds unique and diverse, though your options could mean becoming a mace, dagger, sword, or fist weapon user. But don't spend talents for two weapon specialization talents. It's a waste of talent points.

All talent trees are tiered. To access each, you need to have spent the (tier number x 5) talent points to access that. Tier 4? 20 talent points, at least. And each tree has talents that have prerequisite talents before they become available, denoted by the arrow from the prerequisite talent pointing to the succeeding talent.

Whether you love the game, hate the game, or are respectfully indifferent, World of Warcraft is undeniably a juggernaut of the online gaming space, recently boasting more than 11 Million players.

Wrath of the Lich King opens up the region of Northrend, and continues the tale of the fallen prince Arthas, whose evil threatens the world once more.
