FPS issues in one specific game

The boyfriend's having FPS and sluggish gameplay issues in one specific game -- "World of Warcraft." His computer is more than powerful enough to, in theory, run it without any problem, and it used to. What gives? [more inside]

Images of Love in World of Warcraft

As a handmade gift for some folks who met in World of Warcraft, fell in love, and got married, I would like to use an image that says both A) Love, and B) WoW. I found info on Love Tokens and "Love is in the Air" items (and a pretty badass-looking plaque), but I don't play the game, so I worry that an item that visually seems to say "Love" may also have deleterious side-effects or something. I like the non-obviousness of the Lovely Charm Collector's Kit, but again, I'm way over my head. WoW players, what think you?

Gift for World of Warcraft-obsessive

World of Warcraft-filter: what would be a good gift for a WoW-obsessed friend in Europe (I'm in the US)? I don't know much beyond the fact that he's been playing it for the past five years and has recently bought a new keyboard for it. I want it to be a surprise so can't really ask him what he already has. Are there any fun T-shirts out there, perhaps? Thanks!

World of Warcraft on UMPC?

Does anyone have experience playing World of Warcraft on an ultra mobile PC like the Samsung Q1, OQO or Sony Vaio UX series?

World of Warcraft: Want to BUY the most bad ass account possible!

Yes I know it is totally lame to buy a WOW account. Don't Care. I want to buy the most bad ass World of Warcraft character possible. Its a present to myself for finishing a 10 year long project. Anyway, how do I go about doing this, how do I evaluate the bad ass-ness of the account? I'm willing to spend thousands of dollars. Yes yes yes, I know it is lame. Whatever. WOW looks pretty cool and I'd like to get into it no matter how lame.

What to do while playing world of warcraft?

My friends are into World of Warcraft, and I want to get a character on there so I can play along with them. However, it seems like it takes up so much time and requires such constant input that I can't do anything else while I'm playing. Has anyone successfully done other things while playing?

Santa plays the Horde!?

In order to illustrate a part of a loooong blog post I'm finishing about World of Warcraft, I'm looking for a small, one panel comic that features Santa Claus raising his fist and, to his apparent disbelief, yelling "For the Horde!" to Rudolph. For the life of me I can't find it. Could any of you hope me on the matter? [more inside]
