Shared Topic: Positive Random Dungeon Stories

Guild drama and angry PuG stories getting you down? Take your mind off the bad stuff with last week’s sunny Shared Topic: Positive Random Dungeon Stories. Suggested by Zan of Altoholic Anonymous, this topic is all about the good experiences we’ve had with those random strangers from other servers we’ve encountered on our dungeoning adventures.

We’ve had the new Dungeon Finder for about two months now and there are plenty of horror stories floating around. There’s tanks and healers feeling abused, not queuing, people feeling generally disenchanted about the whole thing and a whole lot of mean nasties flying around in the dungeon system.

Where’s the love? I know there have to be good positive warm and fuzzy experiences going on in the random dungeons as well. Have you helped or been helped by a total stranger in the random dungeon systems? How did you help? Let’s share some stories of those positive, feel good, experiences. Don’t have any stories? Go get some.

(Note that the suggestion was made back in January, hence the “we’ve had LFD for two months”.)

Sharing their happy tales are:

Zan from Althololic Anonymous (And the Shared Topic suggestion was inspired by this post of his.)

Lissanna from Restokin

Gypsy Red from Mischief, Magic and Rocket Science

Poneria from Fel Concentration

Saithir from Angry Dwarf

Jaedia from The Lazy Sniper

Rajjs from The Angry Alt

Ophelie from The Bossy Pally and the Giant Spoon

Shintar from Priest with a Cause

Gothmogs from Emerald Dreamers

Apparently, contrary to popular belief, good PuG stories aren’t a rarity at all!

This week’s Shared Topic is another social one, but instead of WoW and random in-game strangers, we’re invited to talk about WoW and random out-of-game strangers. Ever overhear a conversation about WoW and felt the irresistible urge to join in? Write about it and participate by checking in on Blog Azeroth.

Other upcoming topics include:

Would you post your blog link on the WoW Armory?
World of Awcraft: your in-game moments of awe.

Shared Topic: How Will Cataclysm Change YOUR Game?

Right before Blizzard gave us a big update on Cataclysm stats and system changes, we were thinking about the expansion as we took part in the weekly Shared Topic. Rilandune from Heroically Random! had suggested we talk about our personal plans for Cataclysm and Pheadra from DI the Tank had proposed discussing the changes to the game we’d like to see.

It’s a new expansion, it’s a new game in many respects. How will it change YOUR game? Will you play a new class you’ve been dying to play for years? Will you play a new role you’ve never played like tanking or healing? Have you been a hardcore raider and would like to get more into the lore and questing or vice versa?

Everyone’s talking about how talent trees and gear mechanics for Cata. will work, class balancing, etc. However, how else would you like Cataclysm to change the game for things like your character? They’re doing a huge overhaul of many of the original areas so it makes sense that they’ll be going back and changing other things. What do you hope gets changed, and what do you hope stays the same?

Taking part last week were:

Rilandune from Heroically Random!

Lissanna from Restokin

Elionene from Good Morning Azeroth

Rajjs from Angry Alt

Ophelie from The Bossy Pally and the Giant Spoon

Next week’s Shared Topic is about PUG stories…but no QQ this time! With almost every blogger having at least some random dungeon horror post on their blog, it’s time to balance the scale and talk about the good stories and great people we’ve encountered in our random dungeon adventures.
