Shared Topic: Humour in WoW

SharedTopic Shopshopshop of Runeforge Gossip has suggested a doozie of a Shared Topic for this week, which is guaranteed to have you ROFLing and LOLing and every other acronym-ing all over the place: Humour in WoW and how it affects the game.

Since I can remember, Blizzard has always inserted the odd pop culture reference or joke in either NPC names or achievements more recently, so I thought it might be interesting to discuss the effect of this stuff on the game.

Contributing to the discussion of all things funny, punny (or even sometimes dunny related) are the following

Shared Topic: Being Aware of your Surroundings During Raids

SharedTopic

We have all been there, whether it be on the dying side or the ‘watch what you are doing!’ side.  Void zones.  Fire walls.  Other massive blobs of certain doom that appear on the screen.  One thing that people always get irate about is people not watching their surroundings during raids, so it is a very popular topic that Lissanna from Restokin has suggested for this week.

As a raid healer, a common thing these days is trying to balance keeping everyone in your raid alive, while still being able to move when you need to (ie. having the right amount of situational awareness to your surroundings during raids).
I thought it would be neat to see how all the classes (even tanks and DPS) handle the multi-tasking that is required during raids. Do tanks and DPS sometimes have tunnel vision and forget to watch for the AOE effects or whatever they need to move out of? How do other healers deal with avoiding the tunnel vision problem?

Contributing to the anti-tunnel vision cause are the following

Some really great contributions this week, with plenty of food for thought for those of us (not me, I swear!) who are a bit prone to, um… standing on the black puddles of doom.  Remember to keep the contributions coming!  Visit the BlogAzeroth forums to read past posts, make your own contributions and suggest your own topics!
