Episode 204 – Nacho Hydra

Mask We’re back from a rather extended summer break and rearing to go. This week we welcome Rho from Realm Maintenance and All things Azeroth back to the show. We spend the time talking quite a bit about the health of the WoW Podcasting Community including a few new podcasts you should check out and a discussion on podfading. We do find a little time near the end to talk a little about 4.3 and the upcoming Flex raiding!

Resource Site Spotlight – Preach Gaming

Hello Twisted Nether Patrons!

This week I’d like to continue down the raiding path if I may, and introduce you to a site that I find both informative and entertaining.

Welcome To:

Mike is a very charismatic and up front guy who, in a nutshell, makes videos. Not just random WoW videos (well those too) but raiding and class guide videos. He has a wide ranging repertoire of characters as well as opinions. His more well known videos are his Workshops. If you are up for it, you can submit a video of yourself while raiding and he will post and critique it for form and function. The purpose is to give you insight into how you play your game and how you might do it better. Emphasis in on effective gameplay and strategy to maximize your character and your play (min/maxing), as well as focusing on the fun aspects of the spec. After all it’s a game and it’s about having fun. That is one of the aspects of his videos I enjoy. Not only is he interested in helping you achieve your dreams of big numbers, it is important that you enjoy the game you’re playing.

*Warning Language* Be aware these videos contain strong language

Preach Gaming also offers class guide videos for each class/spec combination, and usually for each patch update. Showing you the latest goings on with any class, and perhaps what you can do to eek out that extra little bit you’re striving for in your gameplay.

Preach can be found in a couple of locations around the web.


Until next time my friends. Go make the world a better place!

Resource Site Spotlight – WoW Progress

Good Day Twisted NetheRaiders!

Today’s spotlight is not just for you though. There’s a little bit of everything at WowProgress.com.

WoW Progress bills itself as the #1 WoW Rankings Website, and I might just have to agree. (after all it says so in the title!) They are awesomely up to date with all the latest and greatest raid rankings around the World of Warcraft. If you are a follower of the world firsts and the heroic ladder climbing this is the place to get the latest news. However, this site has a few tricks up its proverbial sleeves, with some interesting tidbits of information to offer above and beyond your standard raiding information.

Recruitment: This site offers a recruitment tool that a wayward raider might find very useful. Plug in what you’re looking for and this little baby will tell you who might be looking for you. It can be found smack dab in the center in the Guild Rankings section. Just select your faction, raid amount per week, language and what class you play and away you go!

Characters: This drop down offers you a variety of choices. You can search a specific toon for Item Level, Challenge Score, Achievement Points and BATTLE PETS! You can even search for statistics; deaths, kills, battlegrounds, total damage done, and much more!

There’s even a button that will take you to DiabloProgress. For those of you who like to indulge in a little dungeon crawling on the side. 😉

wowprogressVideo: One of the newest additions to the site are video captures of encounters. Scroll down to the bottom of the main screen and click on the YouTube logo next to the fight you’d like to see. You can then choose from a couple of different character POV’s and check out the fights. The videos are from some of the top guilds around the world.wowprogess2

If you haven’t  been to this site lately, it is definitely worth poking around and taking a second look at.


So all you number crunching, statistic munching, ranking crazed raiders….go make the world a better place!

Have a great Shared Topic idea?

Greetings folks!

I know it’s Summer, and everything gets crazy in the Summer. Schedules get changed, people spend more time outside (except in my case, where I spend more time inside, I hate the heat). But that’s no reason not to blog, right?!

Well, if you’ve got a great idea that may jog the minds of your fellow bloggers, head over to Blog Azeroth and start a thread.

You never know, you may make some new friends in the process, the Shared Topics are a very easy way to socialize with your fellow Azerothian Bloggers!



Resource Site Spotlight – Petopia

Hello Twisted Nether Hunters! This ones for you!

Just like my hunter brethren us warlocks understand the power of pets;  and what better place to find out all about them then the hottest pet site around.

Petopia: A complete guide to hunter pets in the World of Warcraft.

Petopia is one of those sites that always seems to be up to date and have the information you need when you need it. So let’s break it down and take a look at what they have to offer.

  • I’ve never played a hunter before, what pet can I expect to get on my new toon? Starter Pet Chart
  • Ok, cool I’ve started my new hunter. What do I need to know? How to begin
  • That’s awesome! Now I know where to start, but what the heck are specs? Pet Specs
  • I’ve got a feel for my hunter and I’m chugging right along. I think I’d like to try some different pets. Where can I see all my choices? Find a Pet

I love this site. I have a hunter – in fact it’s my main on the other faction (shhh don’t tell anyone). I am not a huge hunter pet collector, but when I want to find something specific or learn something new about a skill, this is the site I head to. Hands down.


All right Hunters! Go make the world a better place!
