Virtuosos

You may have heard this fact quoted in serious discussion about World of Warcraft: According to Malcolm Gladwell, 10 000 hours spent doing an activity (before the age of 21) is all that is required to become a “virtuoso”:

Flashback and the Items You Remember

Considering just how important weapons are to your DPS and, even measuring them against the size of your character in terms of pixels, they’re pretty god damn important as far as gear slots go.

So surely I would remember off by heart the “glory days” of my early raiding and my hard sought after weapons? Nope.

Must Have… Xeppe
(and about DeZire and Vitare)

If you haven’t been reading An Ordinary Priest you might not know it but Xeppe has turned from a white bar into a dark blue one: these days she’s playing a Restoration Shaman. And it just so happens that my guild, Vitare, is being very open-minded about our roster for Cataclysm. And there’s definitely room for a Restoration Shaman.

Just When You Think There’s No Hope

Priests have all the Personality

Are you watching Big Crits too? (Episodes 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5)

The Future of Raiding

A few days ago we got to look into the crystal ball and see the future of raiding in World of Warcraft. Developers released this announcement which outlines how they intend raids and progression to work in Cataclysm. Most of the changes left me feeling pensive about Cataclysm – I can’t help but feel that all the things I love about raiding are slipping further out of my grasp.

That’s a 50 DKP Minus!

A guild member posted a link to an article on MMO Champion: 25 People in Your Raid. Perhaps you’ve read it? It got me thinking. Am I just like one of these raiding personality types? Do my guildies think of me as a Teehee? Ms Prepared?

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.

Raiding Alliances and Self Promotion

And I don’t mean “LOL lets go kill the Stormwind Auctioneers!”. I mean, when people talk about being part of a “collective” or a raiding group bigger or outside of their guild, how does it function?
