Netherhood Welcome Wagon – Apple Cider Mage

Hello Everyone! I’d like you to join me in welcoming Apple Cider of Apple Cider Mage.

Apple Cider started playing WoW back in vanilla, drawn in by its social attributes in combination with the beautiful aesthetics. She soon found herself drawn into the raiding game and before she knew it was defeating the Burning Crusade and The Lich King with the same guild that took her through Molten Core. In addition to raiding, Apple Cider is an alt-aholic and avid seeker of WoW’s hidden (and sometimes not so hidden) lore. She loves questing, and has a holiday collection many might envy.

Apple Cider also loves exploring every corner of Azeroth, and has been places she likely had no business being! She’s been a mage since her first day in WoW, yet no portal can contain her adventurous attitude. One of the reasons that Apple Cider decided to start blogging was to share not only her in-depth knowledge, but also her unique perspectives on WoW. Cider is both a die-hard social justice advocate and feminist – and takes those perspectives and applies them to how she views WoW. Which, in turn, leads to some very engaging blogging!

Should you decide to head over and take a peak, you might find that Cider has some thoughts on Blizzard’s new ad campaign or on what one might feel when an era ends. If those don’t interest you, perhaps you might like some tips on how mage’s can maximize their Taxi Service during Pilgrim’s Bounty or learn more about the new Darkmoon Faire. Or perhaps you might be interested in her leveling through Misandry project.

Apple Cider doesn’t shy away from complicated issues, and I know that I can’t wait to hear more of what she has to say!  Welcome to the blogosphere, Apple Cider!


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

Shared Topic: Dear Pandaren, What Class Shall I Play?

Last week’s shared topic was all about class. With the upcoming addition of a new race in Mists of Pandaria Amerence asks

What class are you playing with the new race Pandaren on the new upcoming expansion? I know most players are excited to role as a Monk, but there are lots of options to choose from. Are you going to be a Pandaren healer, melee, caster dps or a tank?

Rolling a Pandaren are:

Amerence from Amerence Love WoW

DotOrion from Mana Cake Musings

Kamalia from Kamalia et Alia

Karagina from The Reluctant Raider

Mia from Chronicles of Mia

This week the blogging crew is waxing nostalgic and discussing features that have changed or are no longer available in the game. We’d love to queue up some new topics, so feel free to share your idea on the Shared Topic forum!

Happy Blogging!


Netherhood Welcome Wagon – Tricks of the Trade

Hello Everyone!  I’d like you to join me in welcoming Tikari of Tricks of the Trade!

Tikari started playing WoW back in Vanilla. He decided to try out Warcraft after having played many MUDS (if you aren’t old enough to know what these are, it’s ok, we still love you!) and many first person RPGs. He leveled his rogue up to 60, but not having the time to raid, soon moved on to other adventures. Halfway through Wrath of the Lich King, Tikari found that he had extra time again and decided to give WoW another look. He picked it up as easy as riding a bike, and soon found himself at level 85 and ready to start raiding. He joined Apotheosis and hasn’t looked back since!

Tikari hopes to help new and intermediate rogues learn the shifty way of hiding in the shadows, stealing all the gold from your pockets, making everyone angry in PvP and the other ins and outs of roguery (I’m sure there is something else rogues are good at?!). In addition, he’s very excited about becoming more involved in the community. Ok, ok. I guess rogues aren’t all bad. You can learn more about Tikari as he starts the popular 20 day blog challenge.

Apparently, besides being sneaky, rogues have quite a bit to offer. You can learn about how to evaluate assasination rogues with WoL or even how to steer Lord Rhyolith. Tikari also offers his thoughts on the new MoP Rogue talents and the upcoming rogue legendary.

Even if he is a sneaky rogue, I’m looking forward to reading more of Tikari’s adventures!  Welcome to the Blogosphere!
