I Did it All For… Alchemy?

Alchemy is the carrot-on-a-stick that is dragging me all the way through the levels. Not the promise of reaching level 80. Not the quests. Not even the dungeons. Certainly not the gear. But the profession… yes.

Taking Control of Trade Chat

Of all the chat channels, [Trade] is the only one that is broadcast to all the major cities. If you’re standing in Dalaran, and decide to put together a 10 man group for Icecrown Citadel, what’s the best way to advertise for additional group members?

Yep. Trade Chat.

Shadow Lessons from the Professor

Well the first eight or nine Heroic modes in Icecrown Citadel go down pretty easy. I’m sure the Big Crits guild will get Lady Deathwhisper next without too much trouble. But then they’re probably going to hit their heads against the wall also known as: Heroic Professor Putricide.

A Belated 1 Year Blogiversay Post

To all the readers, commenters and fellow bloggers who have welcomed us into the community, thank you the last year has been a blast. We hope that the next 12 months will bring us as much lively input, debate and commentary as the last year has.

Choreography and Hard Modes

So Tuesday nights and Friday nights I tend not to think much about gaming. Well, that was until the latest routine was released and I found myself surrounded by 20 people awkwardly imitating the male Human World of Warcraft dance.

Dressing Down

I’m probably getting way ahead of myself. But there’s a chance, a small chance, that I might be able to weasel my way into a 10 man Ulduar group bent on earning both their Rusted Protodrakes and the title, Herald of the Titans. I’m so excited!

State of Mind

My state of mind while I’m playing World of Warcraft is just not suited to PVP. Call me a care-bear, a pacifist a big fluffy marshmallow and I won’t be offended. I was in the right state of mind for PVP. It took almost a six month absence from the battlegrounds but now I was ready to return.
