Legendary Blizzard designer Rob Pardo steps down

Blizzard has unquestionably earned a place in the Valhalla of game companies. Few companies in video games' history have had the impact that Blizzard has: Warcraft, StarCraft, Diablo. World of Warcraft. Hearthstone.

Quick App: Warcraft Characters

Here we have Gathorc, Dwarf Paladin from the Skullcrusher server (Gathorc gives a big shout-out to Guild Benevolent!). Sure, he's one of those annoying Alliance toons, but nevertheless to our eyes he's definitely got some bragging rights: getting exalted with Stormpike takes some serious grinding time, maxing out Herbalism is nothing to sniff at, and check out the list-o-purple, below!

If you have no idea what the previous paragraph is getting at, move along, nothing to see here. If you're proud of your World of Warcraft Toon and want to be able to show it off on the go, might we recommend our favorite of the iPhone WoW apps, Warcraft Characters (iTunes link, Free).

You can search by character name without having to specify your server, get full views of Basic info, Stats, Combat Stats, Gear, and Reputation, and of course save your favorites to more easily show them off.

Because, honestly, we know that you can't stop thinking about WoW and are going to bring it up the next time we're out -- you may as well have the ability to explain why in the name of the Earthmother you spec'd your Tauren Hunter Marksman instead of Beastmaster. Seriously, don't you read BigRedKitty?
