HOT Topics

Shared Topic This Week

Windsoar posted on TNB a Shared Topic Extravaganza: September! LINK

Welcome our new moderators for Blog Azeroth: Jamin, Edenvale, Akabeko, Dragonray and Amerence!!!

Our first topic was suggested by Stringtheory, and asks what’s better: solo or group questing?

While there are some quests that specifically call for grouping, most don’t… but do you group anyway? How many of you pick up a friend or guildie to quest with and how many grind the lonely roads alone?

Our next topic comes from Essence, who asks us to look at the craftier side of Warcraft!

Inspired by Kalixta’s WoW Recipe IRL topic and the “World of Warcrafts” column over at WoW Insider, I started wondering, how many people are into making WoW-like things in real life? Not just food, though food could count too. But how many people create pottery inspired by WoW? Or wigs, or costumes inspired by WoW? Or even knit or sew things relating to WoW? Or are you a fan artist with pen and paper or pastels or clay? How about Machinmas? Comics? Stories?

Is there WoW inspiration in your life? Do you wear it proudly? Do you make it? Are you interested in it? This could go lots of ways–share what you make, or link to creations you’re fond of!

Next, Saga asked us to share our personal WoW soundtrack.

The WoW in-game music is awesome, but there are times (at least for me) when I’m listening to my own music instead. Are there any specific songs that you connect with WoW? Whether it’s tied to your own characters in some way or simply because it reminds you of WoW. Please share!

Oathblade asked us to dive into the Lore and determine the winners and losers in the ever-shifting story of different races:

Blizzard often tries to work unusual race/class combinations into the game for various reasons. Who do you think are the winners and losers in their efforts? Why? Does it matter if there is more representation of it (Quests, NPCs, etc) or the importance/quality?

For our last hit of the month, Oathblade gave us another topic, this time the worst quest ever:

We all have the ones we hate to do. The quests that make us froth in rage to see their name in our quest log. So what quest do you hate above all others? If you can break down why its so horrible and rework it so it works.
