Resource Site Spotlight: Raider 101

Hi folks! Today we’re going to explore a wonderful site that aims to be the first stop for any player who wants to learn how to play their class in a raid: Raider 101.

As you can see from the screenshot of their home page, this is not a pretty site, it’s a functional site. Interestingly, it’s also a wiki style site- many of the contributions are from regular folks who have something to add. I checked through the hunter guides, and if I had had access to a site like this when I first started, I could have avoided hours of research and googling about trying to learn what precisely I should be doing.

So hop on over and take a look around! If you are interested in learning how to raid, changing raiding classes, or just want to get a better idea of what all your team-mates are doing while you do your thing, this is a good comprehensive resource.

The resource site spotlight (aka wiki tiki utility posts) should happen every week, but is written by Euripides from outdps.com and the Hunting Party Podcast, and endeavors to fill your favorites bar with an unmanageably large quantity of WOW resource sites. So much knowledge that it hurts. Ow. Ow. Ow. Ow.

Blog Azeroth Shared Topic – After Arthas

This week’s Shared Topic invited us to gaze into our crystal balls and share our thoughts on what will happen to Azeroth and its people after Arthas is defeated.

This great idea was suggested by Ringo Flinthammer of Flinthammer Hall:

What now? What happens to the world of Azeroth? What happens to the people, the factions. How does this affect the relationships between the Alliance and Horde? What does your character think happens next? Is this the end for you, as a player, especially if you started, as I did, with Warcraft III? Is this the "end of history?"

Getting their fortune teller skills on are:

While I expect my post-Arthas speculations to fail miserably, I can predict with some certainty that next week’s Shared Topic will stray away from lore and focus more on gameplay tricks as we share tips (or, in some cases, silly stories) on staying alive as a melee dps. If you’d like to take part in the upcoming shared topic or any other shared topic, stop by the forum on Blog Azeroth!

 
I also predict that Saresa will be back in town by the time the next topic ends. While I look forward to seeing her around the Nether again, I have to say I’m sad to hand these writeups back to her. It’s been a blast!

Cheers!

 
Ophelie, filling in for Saresa one last time.
