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!


Ophelie, filling in for Saresa one last time.

TNB Live Friday 1/22 8pm PST – The Elitist

Join us as we chat with Tristan Pej from The Elitist Podcast about raiding, podcasting and doing it hardcore.

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 January 22th at 8pm PST (11pm EST). 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:
    1. 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.
    2. 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!

Blog Azeroth Shared Topic – When Wrath Was Young

It’s time for another Blog Azeroth Shared Topic! This week, Jaedia from The Lazy Sniper suggested we take a stroll down memory lane and write about our experiences from back in the day, back when Wrath was young.

I have an idea for a blog post which is basically looking back to the beginning of Wrath. Memories of how I felt, what I did, things I discovered, things I now miss. I’m interested to see a few other responses however, what are your fondest memories from the beginning of this expansion?

Sharing their memories are

Next week’s Shared Topic will take us in the opposite direction! Looking forward, we’ll be speculating on what will happen in Azeroth after Arthas faces defeat. Should you like to join in on this week’s or next week’s (or any week’s, really) Shared Topic, head over the the Shared Topic forum on Blog Azeroth.

This was Ophelie, filling in once again for Saresa.
