Shared Topic: Helping New Players

Do you help new players at all? What about clueless players in dungeons? Do you like to be helpful? Do you care? Are you just not that type of person? Or do you worry about being too pushy? Last week’s Shared Topic raised those questions after Nexdominus from There Will Be Blood asked us:

Do you help new players, if so in what way?

Participating were:

Elkagorasa from Elkagorasa the Casual

Nenunial from The Rambling Draenei Death Knight

Nexdominus from There Will Be Blood

Anslym from Totem Tossing

Herculano from Herc the Merc

Spinks from Welcome to Spinksville!

Pndrev from Primetime Casual

Zan from Altoholic Anonymous

That Priest from Barrens Chat

Ravon1981 from WoW Titans

Pindleskin from Misguided

Redhawks from Redhawk’s Gaze

This week’s Shared Topic is about getting ready for Cataclysm. Are you ready for the next expansion? What are you doing to prepare for the leap? Write about it and share in the Blog Azeroth Shared Topic forum!

And The Counting Shall Be 2

anniversary Wow. I still can’t believe that we are coming up on our 2 year anniversary of the first episode! I think that was also our shortest episode ever. Way back in 2008, Bre and I had this idea. How about we create a podcast that talks about the WoW blogosphere? We took it and.. well, a co-host change, new graphics, a live show, 80+ interviews, lots of round tables, sponsors, Blizzcon and an amazing amount of the best fans anyone could ever ask for.. 2 Years later.. We’re getting close to 100 episodes.. We’ve got our second Blizzcon (well, 3rd for Nib, 2nd for our meetup) coming up in October.. And every week we get bigger and better (ok.. we try NOT to get bigger.. but.. we like to talk.. 😛 ).

So, Thank you ALL for your continued support of our grand vision! We really mean it when we say we couldn’t have done it without each and every one of you. You make what we do worth it.

We want to do something really special for our next couple of episodes. I’d love to get some voicemails, mp3 files, even emails if that’s all you can do from you guys.  ALL of you! If you have a blog, podcast, twitter account or are just a listener (who doesn’t have a twitter account?!?). We’re looking for “shout outs” .. Let us know what TNB has meant to you. Make it as long as you’d like. Pimp your blog/show/twitter/facebook/whatever.. Let us know where you want TNB to go in the future! (Mars, Draenor, Abyssal Maw?)

Thank you all again for being the amazing community you are. We look forward to providing you another 2 years of the best news, views and voices from across the Internether! Don’t forget to come to our next couple LIVE shows (remember on our new Tuesday recording schedule!). You never know when we might give something away!

Episode 88 - Twisted Newsday

If you didn’t remember, we moved our LIVE recording day to Tuesday nights (same time/channel). However, not only did a bunch of people forget about the change… We forgot to get a guest! OMG! It’s just Fim and Nib.. Or is that Nim and Fib? Anyway, your co-hosts spend a hefty amount of time discussing the news this week. The iPhone/Pod/Pad Application is updated with Beta AH functionality! Blizzcon Tickets go on sale June 2 and June 5. PTR 3.3.5 Is Open.. And sooo much more.. It might be shorter than usual, but it is NO less packed with vitamins and minerals! We guarantee…

Shared Topic: The Explorer's Task

Last week’s Shared Topic took a number of bloggers to various hidden corners of Azeroth after Jaedia from The Lazy Sniper challenged the blogosphere to an Explorer’s Task.

Last night, I had an idea for a shared topic that is a little bit different to your usual shared topic. I’ve posted about it here if you’d like a little more detail, but basically, the idea is to take your character out into Azeroth and Outlands, pick a few zones to visit, take a few screenshots maybe, tell us how your character reacts to their surroundings, explore the little bits of lore. It’s really quite open to your own interpretation, but it is an invitation to get out there and write about what you see.

Sometimes when levelling, we bypass things, be it the fallen Old God in Darkshore, or just the Murlocs on the coast. How often do you stop to look around and think?

Participating were:

Poneria from Fel Concentration

Zalduun from Blessing of Fish

Jaedia from The Lazy Sniper

Windsoar from Jaded Alt

Angelya from Revive & Rejuvenate

Raven1981 from

Nenunial from The Rambling Draenai Death Knight

Anexxia from The Bible of Dreams

Lunaire from Lunaire’s World of Warcraft

This weeks we’re attacking the sometimes touchy topic of helping new players. Do you help new players? If so, how? Let us know by writing a blog about it and reporting back to the thread at Blog Azeroth!
