Forget whatever I was about to do with my Affliction Lock Endgame Basics thing. Nibuca at Mystic Chicanery just completely owns affliction warlocking and said everything better in just one post.
Though I might post a “raiding etiquette” or something, concerning warlocks. I’ve been told I’m a good warlock by guild healers as opposed to other warlocks who life tap at odd times or whatever “not so cool” things they do. Unless Nibuca just completely pwns that category too.
There’s been a string of awesome WoW blogposts I’m read recently. Before I spam the trackbacks field, here’s my favorite of late:
- Brajana’s perfect post about GS. Honestly, THIS is how GS should be used. Don’t blame the addon for idiots, please.
- Miss Medicina’s right again: standing up when you did bad.
- Ironically, I think Miss Medicina and some others got trolled by a goblin when the Spitfire post came out on World of Matticus. But she posted this just before the fire sparked.
- A friendly reminder from Lissana about account security after a guild hacking. My guild got hacked several times in a row, all with officer who had access to a fair chunk of the guild bank. We’ve even watched hacks-in-progress online. Fortunately, it was before the care package requirement and people managed to get their stuff and the guild’s stuff back. But go get a keyfob or app if you can.
- Tam explains against WoW “addiction.” This really struck me since I had to essentially do the same thing and completely give up on a friendship because she degraded my WoW friends/guildies over my “real” friends. Friends are friends, to me.
- The Guildwatch column, now called “The Classifieds,” at WoW.com is now dramaless! Honestly, with all the group hate and distrust that 3.3 suddenly brought out of the shadows, I’m ecstatic about this. Yeah, the drama column was kind of cathartic in a way, but I’m glad it’s gone. Especially loving the shout-outs for awesome pugs at the end!
- Raiding is band class all over again! Angelya plays the cello, I play the clarinet, but we both agree. I particularly learned from band class that you may not hear the clarinet’s particular voice, but without it, the trumpets sound all brassy and rough (and half of them didn’t know the part without us, anyway). You don’t need to stand out to help the group succeed or fail, raiding or orchestra.
- If Cass ever finishes all the not-in-game instance maps this way, I might just ditch Atlas once and for all.
Some of the comments on these posts are also excellent in advice or pure opinion. I try to read all the comments on posts, especially since other WoW bloggers I like read each others’ blogs. Yeah, sometimes, like on the WoM Spitfire post, it takes about 2 hrs to read them all, but it’s worth it most of the time. Happy reading! 🙂
