Shared Topic – My Top Three & Insert NPC Name Here

Greetings folks! This week we have ourselves a two-for-one!

First up, for the week of June 4th – 10th: My Top Three

Cymre of Bubbles of Mischief posted this topic for the Blog Azeroth Community to contemplate –

“What are the top three items on your main that you just love for sentimental, fun or silly reasons and would hate to lose? Tell us a story, what makes them so special and as always illustrate with screenshots”

These fine folks responded with zee posts –

Cymre’s post on Bubbles of Mischief
JDKenada’s post on Arcane Wordsmith
fivequarters from Argus or Bust
Ninevi from Flask Half Empty
Mabaho’s post on BikesBabesBytes
Erinys from The Harpy’s Nest
Dragonray’s post on Azerothian Life
Toki, of Turkey Lurkey Rogue Jerky fame, posted this
And lastly, but certainly NOT leastly – Karegina of Yseras Daughter

As you can see, just about everyone who has a WoW blog answered the call to that topic!

Now, for the week of June 11th through the 17th: Insert NPC Name Here

We have another topic from Cymre of Bubbles of Mischief this week!

If Blizzard added your main as an NPC in WoW, where would they be located and what would be their function? Give us a shot illustrating the fact.

Here is Cymre’s post

And we already have some responses –
Navimie of The Daily Frostwolf
Karegina of Ysera’s Daughter

Make sure to head over to the Blog Azeroth forums and post a link to your response to this weeks topic, in this thread , and I’ll add it to the list prior to this Saturday’s TNB!




Two more posts for the mix!, from Mataoka of Sugar & Blood –

Resource Site Spotlight – WoW Headlines


Do you know what I love?


Well of course you don’t, so I’ll tell you – specialized content aggregation apps/sites that are well designed with non-cluttered interfaces.

I need to explain that statement.

Have you ever tried out any apps on your smartphone or tablet that aggregates content from a large number of blogs and sites with a specific topic, ie. a “Tech” category that shows the top articles from Ars Technica, Engaget, GigaOm, The Verge, etc.? I LOVE those apps! They give you the ability to see a great deal of information, from excellent sources, in one location. I know there are benefits and shortcomings to the article authors, but at the least these apps and sites can put articles in front of you that you would not have seen otherwise.

WoW Headlines is just one of these sites, AND an app, for Ye Ol’ World of Warcraft.

The site is not cluttered despite displaying articles from a plethora of sources all over the net. WoW Headlines categorizes the news by class, PVP, Auction House, Mists of Pandaria News, and more.

I spent a great deal of the day going through the different sections, finding authors and blogs I had never read previously, and really enjoying the ease of finding the articles in such a “one-stop-shop” environment.

Head over to WoW Headlines and make sure to check out the information on their app!
