Netherhood Welcome Wagon – Stand in the Blue Circle

Hello Everyone!  I’d like you to join me in welcoming Alacran of Stand in the Blue Circle!

Alacran has a long history with WoW, dating back to Christmas 2005 when he was given the game as a gift by his friend Juanpablo. After he moved to Mexico, he found WoW to be an invaluable way to keep touch with friends from back home. He first started his shaman adventures during the Burning Crusade as a Troll, however once factions changes became available the lure of the spacegoat (and playing with alliance friends) was irresistible and Alacran became a Draenei.

While Raiding has always been an important part of Alacran’s gaming time, he has more recently discovered the challenges of Arena play, and has begun to competitively participate in PvP. While he feels that it was a huge challenge, he also thinks that it not only made him a better shaman but a better raider as well.

At the start of Cataclysm, Alacran made the decision to move from his current 25 man guild to a 10 man guild with a limited raid schedule – as he found that he could no longer keep up with 4 night a week raids with his new responsibilities as a papa. He now raids two nights a week, and is 10/12 with heroic Halfus down, and recognizes some of the unique challenges that are presented with such limited raid time.

Alacran started blogging via school, and well, one thing led to another and now we have another fantastic shaman resource! He has had a number of great opportunites through his blog, such as interviewing GTFO author Zensunim and an extremely intruiging guest post by Dr. Octavio that explores Shamanism in Mexico.

On the Healing side of things, Alacran shares his UI and takes a look at GridStatusChainHeal. You will also find him discussing the role of deep healing in 4.1. And just in case you are too hesitant to ask questions, Alacran has put together a list of questions that he wishes you’d ask!

Alacran lets us know that we can expect to see more discussion on healin, resto shamans and 10’s raiding in the future. He’s also looking forward to the friendships that he’s already made through blogging and in the Twitter community. With what I’ve seen so far, I certainly know that I’m looking forward to more!

Resource Site Spotlight – Zeherah’s Hunter DPS Analyzer (femaledwarf.com)

You have never actually seen a female dwarf right? I know I haven’t, and I have spent years in Ironforge.

Well this weeks RSS features a female dwarf, so I would say that is scientific proof that they do indeed exist!

Zeherah’s Hunter DPS Analyzer (found at femaledwarf.com) is a site dedicated to the our gun totin’, arrow shootin’, pet lovin’ brethren and is designed with the explicit purpose of maximizing their damage output (afterall, they need all the help they can get) … (Just kidding)

I love DPS analyzers, always have, always will. While I do not yet play a hunter (I do indeed plan on rolling one, so I can honestly use the term yet) I can see that this is a well designed and easy to use resource for the hunter class.

If my good buddy Muzzleloader on the Earthen Ring realm is reading this, he is a new player in World of Warcraft and he is already crunching the BIS sheets for his hunter gear, so if he is not already using femaledwarf.com, he will be now, or I shall not allow him food or frosty beverage (beer) the next time his wife and he comes to have dinner at my families house. ^.^

So if you are one of those gun totin’, bow shootin’, pet lovin’ huntering folks, check out Zeherah’s Hunter DPS Analyzer (found at femaledwarf.com) and watch your place on the deeps meter escalate quickly.

Cheers & Truly,
~Rilandune

Netherhood Welcome Wagon – Heavy Wool Bandage

Hello Everyone! I’d like you to join me in welcoming Glorwynn of Heavy Wool Bandage.

Glorwynn started playing WoW just over two years ago, when on her quest for a new fantasy adventure, it was suggested to her by her husband. The two of them purchased the game and have been playing it together ever since! Together they take crazy journeys through Azeroth, with their adventures knowing no bounds. (Who says you can’t Trick or Treat in Outlands at level 40?!?!).

 

Glorwynn started Heavy Wool Bandage one day after asking for some novice healing advice on twitter and determining that 140 characters was insufficient to talk about how it feels to be starting all over again, and relearning the game from another perspective. The blog’s focus isn’t on certain class mechanics, or skill, but rather a study on the way people treat each other in groups and how her real life influences how she approaches the game.

You can see some examples of this perspective on WoW in Glorwynn’s look at Social Anxiety and Group Effort. She also takes a look at why your character heals, and lets people know that she’s not afraid to let you die!  Glorwynn also extrapolates on why you won’t find her healing battlegrounds.

When she’s not playing WoW, you might find Glorwynn with her nose in a book, creating art or crocheting a chupacabra doll!

I think that Glorwynn has already provided some very thought provoking articles, and I can’t wait to see more! Welcome to the Blogosphere, Glorwynn!
