So The Wait For It Is Finally Over…

 

It finally came this week. After months of waiting the Warcraft magazine has finally arrived. What do I think of it? Is it worth the $40 subscription fee? Lets take a look and see what we see.

First thing I noticed was the artwork on the cover. A beautiful wraparound cover depicting the battle between Sylvanas and Arthas from the HoR battle. As always nicely detailed and showing off their best.

Now what’s inside of it you might ask? Lots and lots of articles. Most of them are short, only 2 or 3 pages long, but they cover a nice spread of it all. It covers everything from a history of WoW to 12 things to expect from Cataclysm. There are several PvP articles which I found interesting as I suck at PvP, and I did pick up a thing or two from them. All in all I like the articles, but they all felt rushed, well that is all but one. The interview with Mike Morhaime seemed to be one of the most in depth and thought out articles. Don’t get me wrong, I know some of the raid information is a little… well… stale, but they do do a very good job of giving good advise on what to do if you’ve never been in any of the Coliseum 5 mans or raids. The 3 articles they have on the different party roles was interesting, and gave a small glimpse of what it’s like to tank, or heal or DPS if you’ve never played that role before.

All in all it’s not a bad magazine at all. They even touched on the new 5 mans in 3.3, and give a little bit of the background history between Arthas and Sylvanas. Now is it worth $40 a year for 4 issues? Well… ummm…. I think that at $10 an issue, and with the huge delay to the first issue, it’s over priced. But, who am I kidding I still would have picked it up. I’m hoping that in the coming issues they clue us in more with what’s going to be happening in game, with Blizzcon and other upcoming events. You know, to make us feel like it was worth it to get the subscription.

So until next time, don’t forget to reload, so you don’t run out of ammo.
