I’d just like to take a moment enthuse about a new podcast on the WoW blogging scene: Twisted Nether. It’s hosted by Fimlys of Asleep at the WoW, and Breana of Gun Lovin’ Dwarf Chick, and it focuses on news from the WoW-o-sphere and the WoW-blog-o-sphere. Fim and Bre are always worth listening to, and [...]

First of all, I’d like to apologise for my radio silence over the last, oh, month or two. My health yo-yoed quite a lot, which made it hard to keep up with WoW, let alone blogging – and, of course, once you’ve had a break it’s hard to know where to start again.
Anyway, I’m back [...]

Major new content’s going to be a bit thin on the ground hereabouts for the next few days while I power through as much Shattered Sun content as possible.
However, my Guide to Shattered Sun Daily Quests is being regularly updated, so take a look there if you’re interested in the new content but you don’t [...]

A recent conversation in Trade channel, transcribed verbatim:
Gold farmer: [insert gold seller spam here, including phrase "100% legal"]
Player A: I like that 100% legal bit, as it is 0% legal
Me: Actually, is it illegal? It’s against the EULA and the TOS, but they’re not laws
Player A: It is “illegal” as far as Blizzard is concerned
Me: [...]

I’ve got a big post half-written at the moment, but I’ll interrupt that to make a quick website recommendation:
WoW Character Watch, a website developed and offered by Alinden of Moar HP Than Jesus, provides a handy service for anyone interested in keeping track of their friends, enemies, and anyone else. (The tagline is “We watch [...]

Thankfully, after the most recent patch, the PTR is playable again – with all mods loaded and graphic effects at maximum, the framerate is still decent.
Unfortunately, I missed a lot of the Shattered Sun daily content; all the phases are now open. I’ll still do an overall guide to the SSO dailies, and I hope [...]

Unfortunately I won’t be providing any PTR-related content for a while, as the biggish PTR patch last week rendered 2.4 unplayable for me – I get 5 FPS or less in almost all areas, and the towns are particularly horrific.
I’m hoping this clears up before 2.4 goes live, but in the meantime I can’t provide [...]

Leafy of Leafshine: Lust for Flower has created a “Don’t Nerf Druids!” campaign that I’m proud to support:

I know this is a cute cause, but I really do believe that the lifebloom nerf is a bad idea. It sets resto druids back months in their PvE gearing for no apparent reason other than the mythical [...]

As I did with 2.3, I’ll be checking out 2.4 on the PTR and reporting back on the items of interest I usually talk about here – I’ll be adding more to my Guide to Daily Quests, for starters, and looking at the five new gems in 2.4.
If you’re interested in checking out 2.4 content [...]

Blizzard is advertising for fiction writers. I meet all of their requirements and their pluses… and it’s an onsite job in California.
