This week, because I’ve been lazy, we again have 2 Shared Topics in one!
The first of these was suggested by Boize of Moonglade:
Recently I found WoW in a place that I hadn’t expected it to be in the world outside the interwebs.
I was out grocery shopping, saw someone looking at the iPhone Armory app, and struck up a conversation with them about WoW, completely out of the blue.
This was my first real out-of-game “hey, other people around me play WoW too!” kind of moment.
Have you had any of these moments? What’s the most unexpected place you’ve found something WoW-related?
Blogging about finding WoW in unknown places are the following:
Boize from Moonglade
Almaster of Lux Legis
The second Shared Topic, Gearing for a Role You Cannot Yet Perform was suggested by Naithin of Tank N Tree:
Which is to say, Tanking or Healing as the two primary culprits here. Not that I condone waltzing into a heroic as a freshly dinged 80 to ‘DPS’ without having put any effort in either, but you can do this and get through a run. To a lesser degree you can with healing as well, if the tank is suitably geared. Most difficult of all, tanking. Even if the healer is absolutely wonderful and able to keep you alive, good luck then in keeping agro off everyone else.
I haven’t yet finished my take on the topic, but will be sure to link through to it when I have. Feel free to take the idea any way you wish, be it a simple list of gear you can buy cheaply or through to methods of obtaining gear while being something else and their associated ethics (or lack thereof).
Would be very curious to see what others come up with. In this day and age in WoW, it’s probably never been easier to do, but yet, it’s still not precisely easy, and I see post after post asking how it’s done. So have at it!
Reponding to this topic are the following:
Icedragon of Druid Main
Naithin of Tank N Tree
Orc Shaman of Orc Shaman
Cybac of Raid Leader
As always, we are looking for more Shared Topic suggestions! Head on over to the Blog Azeroth Forums and suggest a Shared Topic!
Today, I’ll be highlighting a forum for warcraft economics. The JMTC forums are hosted by Marco, from the Just My Two Copper blog, and is a place for people to talk about making money on the WOW auction house. It’s one of the larger such communities, and as such has a wealth of information to get people started on using the auction house to make gold.
Please note- some of the ads on the site are for services that break the game’s terms of service, and I have to say that the TNB does not suggest you do anything that would break the game rules, but the info in the forums themselves are all fair game.
They have quite a few guides for different professions, so if you’re trying to figure out how to make money with, say, leatherworking and enchanting, go take a look!
The resource site spotlight (aka wiki tiki utility posts) should happen every week, but is written by Euripides from outdps.com, 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.
||Join us for our Friday night recording at 8:00PM PDT as we’ll have a 3.3 Round table with Matticus(World of Matticus), Stoneybaby(Big Hit Box), Graylo(Gray Matter), Honorshammer(Honor’s Code) and (maybe) Pike(Aspect of the Hare).. We’ll be doing our whole show live!
Listen in our LIVE chat room and we’ll take questions (and hopefully answer them if we can).
- When is it?: This live show is scheduled for Friday October 23rd at 8:00pm PDT (11:00 pm EDT). Not sure what time that is for you? Use this handy-dandy time converter!
- Where do I go? To participate on the live show, you will need to go to the TNB Live Show page to connect with the stream. See, totally easy. If you are having issues then go to the Ustream page.
- Some general ground rules:
- Be nice. If you say very inappropriate things be aware you will be kicked from the room. We are doing this to have a great time, come with a beer, come during a raid, come how you wish, just don’t come to cause trouble.
- You may ask questions to the participants during the show, but we reserve the right to use them if and when we can. I will be monitoring the chat room and if I can I will use the comments during the show. We love that you are with us, but I will have to weave them in. Even if it isn’t asked, we all appreciate your questions
Outside of that, we will love to have you join us and partake in an enlightening discussion that is sure to follow! Hope to see you there!
