|This week we welcome Nevik, the author of Nevik’s Notebook. We have a great discussion on blogging and wow, of course, but stray into unforseen places such as FFXIV and FFXI. After a couple of great bonding moments, Fim and Hydra move on to talk about the News including “Old Weather Flying” (cough) and patch 4.0.1 PTR. We’ve got a few tips, some TNTCasts and a list of New BA Sites. It’s a whole new century, baby.. Get used to it!

Hydra’s Basic Gold Tip
Honor… 75,000 is cap. Sell uncut gems. Stormwind, Orgimmar, and Dalaran. 10 thousand for Cardinal Ruby. This is how I gem my reds, Don’t use Emblems on red since they are twice as much then the others unless you price them out. Wintergrasp marks get turned into honor. So it is your honor storage. I fly through WG to get to ICC … great opportunity to do a few of the quests prior to raid.
Paint.NET for images, Free!! uses the .NET frame work which on the computer I use for images I needed to install. It was very easy. You can make transparent backgrounds if needed. Resizing and cropping pictures easy. Add basic or fancy text. Since it is open source there are a lot of addons to expand its usage.

Shared Topic This Week
Each week on BlogAzeroth a new topic is posted for general blogging. We encourage our listeners to post about that topic on their own blog and then post a link to it in the forum.
So two weeks ago, our Topic was suggested by RestoDude was on how to assist other players in the raid.
how you (as a rogue or warrior for example) would protect an other member in your group, or how you would assist him to help do his job, or as dps and working together to achieve higher dps
the other way around is also possible (which is the thing i’ll write about) as a tank/dps/healer how other can help YOU in various ways
And for last week’s Topic, Elkagorasa brought up the UI and the changes we’d like to make to it in Cataclysm.
I don’t know about you, but I run a ton of add-ons. I run add-ons for fighting, I run add-ons for rep tracking, I run an add-on for auto-selling grey items and repairing when I go to a vendor. Blizzard, in the past, has taken some of the favorite add-ons and rolled them into the game (loot window follows to mouse, integrated quest map).
One thing that has always bugged me was the “looking for” interface. When out on my warlock in old zones, I like to search for ‘low-level quests’ in addition to pick herbs. On the current interface, this is an either/or option. You can’t do both, while logically, my orc could.
If you could provide input into the game, what would you have added to the Cataclysm interface?
