I hadn’t actually heard of Alltop until the WoW subsite launched and Matt posted about it, but now I’ve taken a look I like the concept. Alltop presents a selection of recent posts from a number of editor-selected blogs on an issue, allowing you to browse like you would at a magazine rack. It’s a [...]

In a creative and entertaining riff on the Discovery Channel “Boom De Yadda” ad campaign, Ilcyra of US-Bladefist has created a video tribute to Azeroth (and Outland too).

(In other news, my family visitors have departed, so normal content will resume shortly.)

I’ve just played through the Death Knight starting area and quests on Siaka, my Draenei Death Knight. I have to say it: this is the single most fun and immersive in-game experience I’ve ever had. I tend to think almost everyone should roll a death knight – even if they have no desire to play [...]

Now that the “media blackout” has been lifted, I’m happy to announce a new project I’m involved with:

Plus Heal is a new community for healers of all stripes. Founded by Matticus of World of Matticus, the admins are Matt, Auzara (of Chick GM) and yours truly. We’re joined by a great mod team with some [...]

The video is visible at Leafy’s blog; the results are quite surprising. Did you know, for instance, that Azeroth is about twelve kilometres in diameter [...]

It’s an excellent summary of the steps to go through when preparing to act as a healing strategist, and [...]

So, the Midsummer Fire Festival has just started, and it’s been newly revamped with the kind of content familiar to those who played around with last year’s Hallow’s End and Brewfest holiday festivals. There’s lots of flavourful fluff and some nifty non-combat rewards.
Rather than write up a guide myself, I’m just going to provide a [...]

Some useful links for your day, in bite-sized chunks:
Bre of Gun Lovin’ Dwarf Chick has a very useful list of pre-raid gear guides, by class and spec. She’s kieeping it updated, too.
Seri of World of Snarkcraft has a great guide to reputations. It’s aimed at priests, but there’s a very useful roundup of all the [...]

A friend asked me for a guide to the quests involved in the Love Is In The Air festival, which has just started and runs until February 15th.
However, I don’t need to provide one! MK of A Dwarf Priest has written an excellent guide, which you can find here. Thumbs up, go read it.
(Oh, in [...]
