The Daily Grind: What MMO content are you looking forward to in the last months of 2021?

This is going to be a busy end of the year, isn't it? We've got expansions coming out for Final Fantasy XIV and Lord of the Rings Online, and we've got New World and Elyon both aiming at launch at long last. And that's just the stuff that springs to mind off the top of my head; I'm sure […]

Neverwinter brings back the Harvester of Nightmares to consoles and offers a balance patch to Wizards

You might think that someone called the Harvester of Nightmares might actually be a halfway decent guy in Neverwinter.

Apart from going through particularly good quest stories, filling out a map is my favorite MMORPG activity.
