Shared Topic: Hardmode PvP

Nightwill gave us this past weeks shared topic:

Mathew McCurley ‏- @gomatgo asked on twitter about ideas for a question for The Queue and I came up with one and thinking about it I wanted to mention it here.

“Why not have ‘hardmode’ pvp matches? More difficult goals and the like you can sign up for?”

The more I think about it the more I want to know why not? “heroic” level PvP with an IL restriction? Have unique upgraded maps with cool mechanics that would really confuse someone new to pvp? You could resurrect the raid PvP of Alteric Valley. Have it take 2 hours and compensate equally with the faster matches. Bring up some more total war raid matches like a battle at sea or in the air.

It seems like such a simple idea that would make PvP far more deep and interesting than ‘oh damn WSG popped again for my random.’

Or am I just rambling away about something that wouldn’t ever work?

Netherhood Welcome Wagon – Spec Into Misdirect

Hello Everyone! I’d like you to join me in welcoming Janaelle of Spec into Misdirect.

Janaelle has been playing WoW for seven years, and considers herself a self-titled holy paladin expert who dabbles in some alts on the side. While her raid history is long and varied, she is currently enjoying a more relaxed raid schedule with a dash of RP when she’s not slaying internet dragons. She is also the co-host of the 5wowthings podcast, where she pontificates on varies video games. When not playing WoW, Janaelle has been known to check out other MMOs, and also enjoys Magic the Gathering and a little classic Dungeons and Dragons.

Janaelle enjoys writing about WoW and other games that she finds interesting and would like to share. You can find some information on the newest zones in the beta, or some of the earlier zones as well. She also shares her thoughts on her frustration with some of the WoW Lore and talks about her issues with the ending of ME3. If that doesn’t interest you, perhaps you might like to hear Janaelle’s thoughts on 10 DKs killing Heroic Rag.

I know that I am excited to read more of Janaelle’s thoughts! Welcome to the blogosphere, Janaelle!

Every Tuesday, Beruthiel from Falling Leaves and Wings is bringing you the Welcome Wagon, introducing new bloggers and great reads. If you know of a new blog to the scene or wish to get your name out there, please send an email to, with the subject line “Welcome Wagon.” She’ll do her best to highlight as many as possible

Resource Site Spotlight – MoP Beta Coverage was featured here on RSS back in Dec. 2010 and it is certainly a site that is familiar to every pet-lovin’ Warcrafter out there. But this post is pointing you, dear readers of the Internether, to a specific article covering Mists of Pandaria Beta pet news, specifically the renaming functionality coming to live (hopefully) when Mists launches, and the pet trading mechanics in MoP beta, currently.

MoP Beta: Renaming Pets and Trading Pets

On top of being a well-written article covering a truly fun topic, it features a very nicely formatted image detailing the process of renaming a pet. I love the way the image is laid out and I’m going to attempt to use that editing technique in my own posts 🙂
