The Official World of Warcraft Magazine from Future Publishing just keeps getting better and better. The company got off to a rough start as it tried to find its voice (and a dependable shipping method), but it is slowly approaching its goal of offering something beyond what the myriad of websites can.
The latest issue, which is the last issue before the Cataclysm, features a handful of feature articles on just that topic. The writers reintroduce us to forgotten characters, even the legend of Doomhammer, explain the changes in loot with the loot designers and details the retaking of Echo Isles and Gnomeregan for those who may have missed it. Community highlights are a plenty, including another collecting featurette, this time for the mount hunters out there. Most interesting to some will be the Chris Metzen interview, which highlights just how much his day-to-day life has changed since he created the worlds for Blizzard. All of this comes wrapped in increasingly complex layouts, topped off with never-before-seen art assets.
