Shift Happens Deadline Approaching
Just a reminder that the deadline for Shift Happens design submissions is in one week, September 24th. I’ve received one lovely submission so far, so if you still have an idea rattling around in your head, you have seven days to send it in! Once I have them all, I’ll put up a poll for readers to select their favorite (unless of course we only end up with the one submission). You can read more about the contest here!
Great Posts I Recommend You Read
|Spell of the Druid
Things have been quiet around here lately, partly due to RL changes (Mr. Phae just finished his dissertation!) and partly because beta has been nigh-unplayable lately. I am working on an extensive new article about using the Nostromo in Wrath which I hope to have live by the end of the week. In the meantime, why not check out some of these other fantastic offerings:
- Beta: The Awesome from ThinkTank
Kalon shares his optimism amidst all the bemoaning going on about the state of Ferals in Wrath.
- Choosing Professions in Wrath from Yet Another Warlock Nerf
Horns gives a great summary of some of the new features included with the tradeskills in Wrath.
- PvE to PvP Server Transfers and Overdue Policy Change from Lume the Mad
Lume gives a highly detailed explanation of the reasons why PvE => PvP server transfers should be — and should have always been — allowed.
- Role Switching: Part 1 from Bringin’ the Wood
Jive writes about what it takes to switch from playing a pew-pew (or mew-mew) DPSer to a healer.
- Tanked! Revaluing Feral Combat Talents in Beta Build 8926 from Unbearably HoT
Runycat takes a look at the current must-have tanking talents in Wrath.
Thanks to reader Breen of Steamwheedle Cartel (EU) for sending in the following artistically-rendered Resto Cloud:
Several new blog authors appear to have been inspired by my earlier article, So You Think You Can Blog – You’re Right! (and some of whom were already off on the right track before I published):
- Beware Splinters
Sophilia of Turalyon (US) is a Restoration Druid seeking Salvation and Intellect!
- Draenic Wisdom
A beautiful blog from a player with an entire corps of Draenei alts!
- Electronic Escape
Eletronic Escape is a collaborative blog from Maeleigh and Loveth of Blackwater Raiders. Topic selection is pretty diverse but there are several great ones on Magery.
- Less QQ, More PewPew
Drotara of Illidan (US) publishes one of the most stylish and entertaining Hunter blogs out there. One can only assume that he’s assisted by his feline companion as, last I heard, Orcs can’t write.
- Master Shapeshifter
Rather than focusing on a single niche, Master Shapeshifter attempts to address all of the roles that a Druid can perform. Includes a plethora of helpful macros for all specs.
- Moonkin Musings
Neren of Fenris (US) plays a “big furry\feathery Hooter who dances like Chris Farley.”
- A Rogue’s Eye View
This great new Rogue blog recently snuck on the scene. Breaking with the class stereotype, it doesn’t even have a black background!
- Sheep This!
Alluding the the polymorph immunity afforded Druids when shapeshifted, Sheep This is a new blog written by Gelaende of Mannoroth (US). Focuses on play as a Restoration Druid as well as Gelaende’s corps of alts.
Rawfle of Onyxia (US) has chosen the interesting blog focus of writing about individual talents, particularly for the three classes he happens to play: Druids, Mages, and Shamans.
- Tish Tosh Tesh
Rambling, rumbling, and rumination from someone who happens to love WoW … and apparently also adores alliteration!
