Last week’s Community Spotlight with highlighted articles got such a great reception that I think it’s something I’ll try to continue. Hopefully you’ll enjoy the gems I’ve set aside for you (they’re 11 +Healing, 5 Spirit)!
Another fantastic set of posts to educate, entertain, and edify you!
- Best Looking Druid Set from Horns of YAOWN
Horns gives further evidence of his secret love affair with Druids with his poll of what the best-looking set of Druid armor is. I won’t spoil the surprise of who the winner is, but I must express disappointment that Nordrassil didn’t fare better than it did.
- Nature’s Swiftness (for Shamans) from Anna of Too Many Annas
Ever notice how all the races who can play Shamans have funny feet? Hmm. Anyway, in this article Anna explores and encourages the use of Nature’s Swiftness for Shamans.
- So What are You Wearing? from Runycat of Unbearably HoT
This week Runy writes about the advantages and best methods of optimizing multiple gear sets with an eye toward maximizing DPS and threat for Ferals. And with that post title, she’s sure to double your entendre!
- The End Heal of Lifebloom Generates No Threat from Lume the Mad
A must read for Restoration Druids, this article details controlled tests he performed to determine that the end heal of Lifebloom generates no threat whatsoever, either for its caster or its recipient. This article is preceded by Lume’s also useful Threat Mechanics post.
- Druids Dance with So Little Provocation from a Scary Bear
So true. I know the first thing I did when speccing into Restokin last night was to /dance /dance /dance the night away. And then I Moonfire-spammed a squirrel.
- No More Salvation? What to Do! from Rollin’ Horde
Learn about the new threat mechanic that will replace the Paladin’s Blessing of Salvation in Wrath of the Lich King!

Arena Pole Dancer Shirt
To celebrate her blog’s 100,000th visitor, Megan from Out of Mana decided to give away an autographed PvP-themed T-Shirt to the lucky winner. She had some great ideas and, in thanks for letting her sell the design myself, I offered to execute my favorite: Arena Pole Dancer. Here’s a preview of the shirt, both front and back (not to scale):

This shirt is now available within the Resto4Life Tree-Shirts store, albeit without the “Out of Mana” design on the back because printing two designs on a shirt increases the shirt price significantly. I prefer this design on red, yellow, brown, white, or even black shirts, but free color selection is enabled for all of them. You can read more about the T-Shirt winners (all four of them) at Megan’s post #100,000 Winnars, Shapeshifted Indeed.
New Blogs the World Over
And here are some new or newly-discovered additions to the blogosphere!
- Grumble ‘N’ Autumn
Written by a husband and wife who play Hunters on the Shandris server, Grumble ‘n’ Autumn details their in-game explorations.
- Hoofed Hybrid
Formerly the author of the blog entitled Lifebloom, Boudi of Feathermoon (US) now writes about both her Druid and her baby Shaman on Hoofed Hybrid!
- An Old Druid’s New Druid
The Alliance welcomes a Tauren-become-Night Elf Druid who enjoys raiding casually and apparently enjoys Druids enough to roll a second.
- Secret Agent Cat
Tigerfeet writes an entertaining and cleverly-themed Feral blog. They’ve give her a Mangle and taken away her Mane.
This blog explores the role of tanking from the perspective of multiple tanking classes. There seems to be a plethora of great Feral-related articles, though!
- Unpack Your Adjectives
You did pack your adjectives, right? After all, you never know when you’re going to need words like: Feral, Wry, and PvP-oriented. In fact, those words would come in handy if asked to describe this blog!
