Around Azeroth: Molting core

Monday, June 21st, 2010

Taking flight for the first time is an important rite of passage in every young druid’s life. But Rainfury of Moon Guard (US-A) seems to have been stricken by the Featherless Grippe, and is rapidly (and explosively) molting in mid-air over Blade’s Edge Mountains. Time to get into crash position, ma’am. Do you have any [...]

Manga Review: Shadow Wing Vol. I — Dragons of Outland

Monday, June 21st, 2010

The Dragons of Outland is the first volume of the Shadow Wing series, a sequel of sorts to the tremendously popular Sunwell Trilogy. Written by Richard Knaak and illustrated by Jae-Hwan Kim, it follows the further adventures of the paladin Jorad Mace, and the blue dragon Tyrygosa, or “Tyri” in her elven form, as they [...]

Breakfast Topic: What are your plans for the Fire Festival?

Monday, June 21st, 2010

The 2010 Midsummer Fire Festival began earlier this morning, and this year some of the holiday’s mechanics have been changed to reflect the dungeon finder’s impact on the game. With the Crown Chemical Company apothecaries introduced to Love Is In the Air, we saw the last gasp of extensive holiday boss-farming for special drops. These [...]

All the World’s a Stage: 4 ways you know you’ve jumped the shark

Monday, June 21st, 2010

I recently revisited an old roleplay stomping ground. It’s a vampire game, so it’s not the kind of thing in which one expects high fiction. The vampire genre tends to be good gothic goofy fun. It’s a “darker” kind of roleplay, which generally just means that people keep straight faces and focus on telling stories [...]

Wrath Retrospective: Ulduar and Trial of the Crusader, part one

Monday, June 21st, 2010

Ulduar and Trial of the Crusader/Grand Crusader (collectively “ToC”) were the middle children of the Wrath raiding family. And like many middle children, they both turned out wildly different from the children before and after them. Ulduar and ToC could not have been farther apart in design, structure, implementation, and style. I would love to [...]

The Light and How to Swing It: How to keybind your holy paladin

Monday, June 21st, 2010

Every Sunday, Chase Christian of The Light and How to Swing It invites you to discuss the finer side of the paladin class: the holy specialization. This week, we discuss the proper way to set up keybindings for your holy paladin. I was in a raid a few nights ago with a newer holy paladin [...]

Spiritual Guidance: Do’s and don’t's of priest healing

Monday, June 21st, 2010

Another Sunday is upon us, and while a certain priest who shall remain nameless (his name might start with a “F” and end with an “ox Van Allen“) lies about in a post-Warlock-soiree-stupor somewhere, Spiritual Guidance and Dawn Moore are here to cater to all your priest and healing needs. Dawn Moore won’t forget to [...]

Sunday Morning Funnies: Bubble deeps

Monday, June 21st, 2010

This week’s discussion topic will focus on pointing out the comic that you think has most improved over time. Feel free to illustrate your choice with a link to an early example and a link to a newer entry that really showcases the artistic development. As always, leave any tips for new WoW-related comics in [...]

Around Azeroth: Reverse vampire

Monday, June 21st, 2010

Yay! It’s a hundred degrees and humid, but that doesn’t matter because True Blood is back! After all the Twilight hoopla it’s nice to see vampires who actually rip out throats rather than angst all over the place. In honor of the first of the three shows that will get me through this hellaciously hot [...]

Breakfast Topic: Father’s Day

Monday, June 21st, 2010

The secret to making a good cake is in the fun involved. If you have to ninja your way into making it when your dad is out of the house, so be it. If you have to beg your brother to take your dad to the store for some nonsensical reason so you can frost [...]
