The Guild Bank: How Does Your Guild Make Money?

I would be very interested to hear how other guilds run their guild banks and how they fill their coffers. In fact I would really like to get heaps of information and do a guide because frankly Google just didn’t cut it for me this time.

My Faithful Raiding Companion

I was inspired by Keeva & Kae’s pet posts and thought I would share a picture of my part angel/part devil cat Tristam. 

Lath the Forum Troll

I found this quite humorous – I have been given a 24 hour ban for trolling! I will now be known as Lath the Forum Troll. If only it were an achievement title you could actually earn in game.

The Asshat Clause

I’m sure you’ve heard of it, and chances are your guild has one:

We don’t care how good a player you are, if you’re an asshole we’ll boot you.

I have to admit I’m a bit of a softy and take pity on people with poor social skills. I prefer to work around their ineptness by ignoring them as much as humanly possible. For the first time since I started raiding I was tempted to /gkick a raider in the middle of raid even though we were already short a member and really needed him.

10 Tips to Successfully Apply
to a Raiding Guild

This post is going address the common things I look for when going over an application in the hope that this information can help some great players find quality guilds to join. My own experience has been applying and reviewing applications for raiding guilds who almost always require applicants to submit a written application.

It’s Epic on the Inside

Pixii is the proud owner and wearer of Electromagnetic Gigaflux Reactivator. This has to be the craziest looking head piece in the game. It makes the Druid Tier 10 briarthorn headpiece look boring in comparison. The Electromagnetic Gigaflux Reactivator not only looks cool, it also shoots lightning out of it every 30 minutes!

Patch 3.3 Resto Druid Gear Guide
For the 25 Man Raider

This gear guide is a follow up from my Patch 3.3 Gear Guide for the Casual/10 Man Raider. The guide is focused on raiders who have access to 25 man content through their guild. I’ve included 5-6 options for each slot to ensure that there is both heroic and non heroic items available for those raiders who don’t progress through 25 man heroic content.

It’s a Train Wreck and I Can’t Look Away!

I’ve never done a blogroll spotlight before but this one had me so intrigued I felt it deserved a post of its own.  Now for some twisted reason I very much enjoy reading other peoples experiences (especially when it goes oh so bad) in dungeons and raids and I have a feeling that quite a [...]

Patch 3.3 Resto Druid Gear
for the Casual/10 Man Raider

While Icecrown Citadel has been gated, most gear and boss details have already been data mined which is great because we can start planning and making decisions about what gear upgrades are most achievable even before the bosses are available. Something to keep in mind is that the gear you gather at this final step of raiding will probably also form your leveling set when Cataclysm is released.

2009 Wrap Up, The Pink Pigtail Inn List

Larissa over at Pink Pigtail Inn has started a 2009 awards show! How exciting does that sound? Anyway as I love to ramble I found it too hard to give succinct nominations via a comment on her blog, and instead decided to post it as a blog of my own. So below are the Hots & Dots nominations for 2009.
