World of Warcraft Articles In Old Magazines and More!

Recommended Posts

After I saw the 'Vintage Screenshots' thread I felt bad that I didn't save any screens back in the day. I was young and I barely understood the game, but that's another story.

Here are some old WoW articles that I've found in my gaming magazines collection (they are in romanian but I will translate some parts).

 

 

They used to put 3 WoW ads in every issue!

'Create - Connect - Join the battle'

'A new world awaits you!'

They also used to put Guild ads!

'Dogwatch' is still an active guild to this day!

'Do you have work, three children, and something better to do during the day? Dogwatch is the guild you need!'

Burning Crusade Release Article

'You are not prepared!'

When I first saw the new zones in this article I knew Nagrand was going to be my favorite zone.

Really cool stuff, thanks for sharing. I find the above particularly interesting though. They gave TBC 10 for multiplayer and 8(!?) for storyline. Makes me wonder what score Legion would get... :D

This is why I love Vanilla. You had so many variety items and most of them had cool effects not just +stats. Let's not even talk about Artifact weapons...

Damn I never should throw away all my computer game magazines. There was a lot of stuff about World of Warcraft, I remember I used to read guides and the reason I chose a druid as my first charakter was bcuz I read about it's versatility in that magazine.

 

The WoW hype was real. It had had it's own culture.

Yeah man, who needs helmets and cloaks and trinkets at 60? I remember staring at them screenshots on the box art for aggggeeess while this game installed. I am fairly certain my first character was a nightelf hunter because of the nightelf with the glaive in one of the pictures, looked cool as вау.

Wait, since when can shamans use polearms??

 

I thought they could only use maces, axes, staves and maybe daggers.

If your talking about the tauren with the polearm, hes a warrior, the player is a troll shaman, hes just targeting and inspecting the warrior.
