Wowhead's Artist's Corner and Giveaway - Kyle Punk Art
For this month's Artist's Corner on Wowhead, we're highlighting the art of Kyle Punk Art, as well as a giveaway by this month's artist.
In an effort to share what our wonderful community does, we are trying out what we like to call the "Wowhead's Artist's Corner"! About once a month, we will feature an artist and their craft. This article will feature a small description of themselves so that you can get to know them just a bit, show off their art, and learn more about what they do. And of course, there will be a special giveaway for one of their items.

Mean Streets of Gadgetzan: Comparing Gadgetzan in Warcraft and Hearthstone
Mean Streets of Gadgetzan
, Hearthstone's latest expansion, launched on Thursday, December 1st! As Gadgetzan was originally a city in WoW, we thought it would be interesting to compare both versions of the city.
Gadgetzan in Hearthstone is much more of a cosmopolitan city than in WoW; it would be fun to see some of the Hearthstone factions make their way to WoW. Perhaps the leaders of each faction could each be a boss!
For info about Mean Streets of Gadgetzan, check out our guides on

First Look at Orgrim from Warcraft Film, Blizzard's Selfie Scavenger Hunt
has an exclusive first look at Orgrim, played by Robert Kazinsky, from the upcoming Warcraft film!
Some insights into how the character was created:
Orgrim’s likeness comes from the masterminds at Industrial Light and Magic, who took concept art from Blizzard Entertainment—creators of the massive World of Warcraft videogame franchise on which Jones’ film is based—and merged it with photographs and scans of Kazinsky to create the orc.
Is this what you'd expect Orgrim to look like? Warcraft is live in theaters June 10, 2016.

Introducing Wowhead Class Guides
Class information is a crucial resource for boosted 90 players and alts. Here at Wowhead we try to build tools and present data in the best possible way to help players, and since class gameplay lends itself well to guides, we've launched a new Class Guide section!
Click here to check out our new class guides!
These guides are in the style of our popular guides written by Wowhead staff, such as our holiday and patch guides. We've asked a number of raiders and bloggers, many of which were familiar faces at WoW Insider, to write guides aimed towards beginners. We've aimed for brevity, to give you just the core facts you need to get started, without bogging you down with hugely detailed strategies.
The guides include everything you need to get started:
Spells: core abilities, rotations and priority systems, self buffs, utility, CC and more
Talents: basic builds and optimal choices for different situations
Glyphs: the most popular choices and options for different contexts
