Shared Topic: What Needs to Die in a Fire in Cataclysm?

The Cataclysm is getting closer with each passing day and our Shared Topics have become increasingly more and more about the expansion. This week was no different as Spinks from Welcome to Spinksville! suggested we talk about things we believe need to change, or, erm, die in a fire with the rest of old Azeroth.

Cataclysm is coming! The old world is going to be destroyed and remade.

Which town, quest, NPC, or zone really needs to be purged with fire, in your opinion? Will you enjoy dancing on the ashes of a particularly hated quest giver? Or is there some zone you avoid like the plague (plaguelands excluded) where being nuked from orbit could only improve the experience? And why do you hate it/them so much?

Wanting stuff to die in a fire are:

Zan from Altoholics Anonymous

Morynne from Marks 365

Glassofwater from Not So Overpowered

Ecclesiasticaldiscipline from Ecclesiastical Discipline

Windsoar from Jaded Alt

Saga from Girls Don’t Play WoW

Ardol from WoW Philosophized

Chyllyphylly from Nerfed (although the link seems broken at the moment…)

Anexxia from Bible of Dreams

Dragonray from Arcane Ramblings

Calsong from Mind Spike

Antigen from Haz Mace, Will Raid

Sindei from Six-Inch Heals

Herculano from Herc the Merc

Manroth from At Runtime

Tarinae from A Healadin’s Tear

Flairn from The Cognisance Council

This upcoming week’s Shared Topic is another very current topic, but completely different from Cataclysm. It’s Fifa World Cup, Warcraft style! Bring some of the World Cup fever to your game by blogging on how the World Cup would pan out if it took place in Azeroth, then be sure to post a link in the thread at Blog Azeroth!

Episode 92 - That's what Ril said

We welcome Rilandune and, true to his blog’s name, the show was pretty Heroically Random! We were all over the map, but in a good way. We also have a TON of discussion on the changes recently announced to Cataclysm along with a few Twittercast posts. Oh yeah, and we announce the winner of our Queue Buster Haiku Contest along with an AWESOME surprise! Brigwyn from Brigwyn’s Corner also donated an Authenticator which we gave away to a lucky live audience member! It’s a show you just don’t want to miss.

Shared Topic: Conquering the Pre-Expansion Slump

It’s that time of expansion! Where you don’t want to do anything more exciting than running circles around Dalaran until the next addition to the game is released. Yet some of us still manage to find the motivation to go on, and keep our interest in the game. Want to know our secrets? Check out all the responses to Jaedia from The Lazy Sniper’s Shared Topic suggestion!

With Cataclysm only months away (we can assume), a lot of players are finding themselves bored with current content. How do you, your friends, and/or your guild conquer the pre-expansion slump?

Participating were:

Manroth from At Runtime

Variantavatar from Variant Avatar

Ardol from WoW Philosophized

Ringo Flinthammer from Flinthammer Hall

Herculano from Herc the Merc

Ecclesiaticaldiscipline from Ecclesiastical Discipline

Anslym from Totem Tossing

Just as a reminder to everyone taking part in Shared Topics, make sure you link back to either the topic suggester or the relevant thread at Blog Azeroth or both in your Shared Topic posts. (I used this week’s links as an example.) Shared Topics are shared, so spread the love to your fellow participating bloggers!

And if you’re reading this and saying “I have a blog but I’ve never done a Shared Topic…”, then you should do a Shared Topic! This week we’re staying in the Cataclysmish department as we discuss what needs to die in a fire in the expansion. Join in by posting about it and reporting back to the thread on Blog Azeroth. If you don’t have a blog but would still like to say a few things about it, feel free to answer in a comment to this post, to next week’s Shared Topic roundup or to the post of your favorite participating bloggers.

Queue Buster: Haiku Contest WINNER(s)!

blizzcon20108x6 So, we announced this on our show on 6/15 but wanted to let everyone know who the winner was and also post up the entries that we got. We have a surprise though! We actually have 2 winners. We have one “official” winner and also one Special Award winner.


We are pleased to announce that Hurculano from Herc the Merc is our winner. He won with the following Haiku:

The Twisted Nether
More than just a great podcast
It is family

Thanks so much for this great poem. It was a difficult decision, but in the end we went for this one. For more discussion about the contest and the winner, check out Episode 92 (when it is posted).



We also announced that Krizzlybear from Frost is the New Black is freaking NUTS! His entry for the contest was.. in a word.. epic. He submitted 36 Haiku’s! One was an intro to his masterpiece. Then 34 poems, one for each of the first 34 episodes of TNB. Finally, a conclusion haiku to round it all out. That and a promise of the rest of the episodes as Haiku’s if he won.. Well, he didn’t .. Kinda. Hydra wanted to make sure all his hard work was rewarded anyway and decided to give Kriz the ability to buy a Blizzcon ticket from her also (yes, she had another to put up).

I’ll post Krizz’ symphony of syllables in a later post, but I’ll include all the other haikus we received after the break.. Thanks to everyone that participated! It was lots of fun! 🙂

Episode 91 - Frost is the New Time Warp

It’s astounding! Time is fleeting! Madness takes it’s toll! This week we welcome Krizzlybear from Frost is the New Black and we’re doing the time warp. Krizz was on a Round Table BEFORE being on the show as a guest (contrary to the usual circle of life!). So, now he’s here and he pontificates wildly about the beauties of the upcoming Timewarp Spell that mages are getting. Join us and the Mage of Frost as we talk not only about mages but also about a couple of contests (including our own) and the usual array of news. views and voices! So, listen closely.. (For quite a while longer).. I’ve got to keep control!
