User Guide Spotlight: Pet Battles with the Elekk Plushie by Albinoette - Sat, 24 Mar 2018 01:32:49 -0500
Welcome! By now you're probably aware of the user-submitted guides on Wowhead, but with over 1500 guides published on the site right now, it can be hard to find a guide, even when searching through a specific category. Because of this, some guides slip through the cracks and aren't viewed by many users simply because you don't know about their existence! Sometimes we go blind to guides that aren't stickied, or lose track of which ones are better than others.

World First All Achievements Completed in Legion by Xirev - Fri, 23 Mar 2018 20:43:39 -0500
WoW has a lot of achievements that are incredibly hard to get. But to collect every single achievement before a new patch of even expansion hits is truly a feat in itself.

However, someone has done it!
