This week we have a double whammy of Shared Topic posts! First off the rank we have a suggestion from Solomonx of Magetable:
I was playing my mage yesterday when I got to reminiscing about what raiding used to be like for me. Polymorphing, being only desired as a vending machine and portal maker…that kind of stuff.
So what do you guys remember about the older days of WoW? Was it vanilla or BC? Do you miss it or are you glad that it’s gone? Post an entry telling the world you’re memories!
This was a very popular topic last week, with the following people responding:
Darkpurple from Druidic In Nature
Kae from Dreambound
Lerali from Casual WoW Player
Consolea from Magic and Madness
Erinys from Harpy’s Nest
Ysinnia from Limb to limb
Lissanna from Restokin
Spinks from Spinksville
Gweninu from Out of Ammo
The other topic was suggested by Shopshopshop of Runeforge Gossip:
I have absolutely no evidence that there really are more druid/hunter blogs than other types (though this seems to be the case from looking at the BA author intro forums). Basically my idea for this is to have people just come up with random/serious/funny reasons as to why there are so many hunters and druids who blog but not other classes. You could also give reasons why some classes don’t blog, like, say… "Mages don’t blog because they are vending machines, and everyone knows vending machines can’t talk/write."
So far this week, Calli of Pew Pew Lazers has come up with a great response, examining why the heck there are so many Druid blogs out there!

Hi folks! Today I’ll be profiling Bosskillers.com (link, wiki entry). This is a very good site to have open while you raid. It has a large database of boss guides, covering virtually every boss in all the available content. Simply select the dungeon you’re crawling from the left dropdown menu, and then select the boss you’re trying to figure out. They’ll have the basics about the bosses abilities, as well as more advanced strategy that can help you get your group’s first kill.
If you’re the payin’ sort, you can get animated guides, and if you’re the writin’ sort, you can try your hand at writing a guide. Take a look at this new Coliseum boss– no guides yet. I remember when Wrath and Ulduar were first released, Bosskillers had a promotion where they would pay something like 100$ for a good guide on a new boss.
Till next time!
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.
|This week the show welcomes Mike Schramm from wow.com (the site formerly known as WoW Insider) and mikeschramm.com . Yes, again the interview goes long, but it was more than worth it! The hosts also talk about the official iPhone WoW App , lots of Q&A, listener emails and much much more!

This week’s Shared Topic was suggested by Veneretio of Tanking Tips, and asks readers and bloggers alike to consider the implications of ‘reverse RMT’
I was browsing the net and it hit me, what if Blizzard implemented the ultimate gold sink. What if they allowed you to buy a month of WoW time for 10,000 gold? What would this do to the WoW economy? What would it do to the game as a whole? Would raiding suffer? Would PvP suffer?
Answering the call this week were the following bloggers
Honorshammer of Honors Code “I don’t think this would ever really happen because it exposes the truth of RMT. You really are spending something of tangible value (your money) for something without tangible value (1s and 0s in a computer server somewhere).”
Lerali of A Casual WoW Player. “The idea of converting in-game cash into out-of-games goods such as game time kind of reminds me of how gold selling sites will also offer to buy your gold. If you’re willing to go one way, I don’t really see why they would not go the other way.”
