Shared Topic: Making a WoW Cooking Recipe IRL

Have we got a treat (or several treats…) for you this week! Kallixta from Kallixta’s Notes suggested this week’s gastronomically excellent topic on bridging WoW Cooking Recipes and the real world:

Have you ever attempted a WoW cooking recipe IRL? Have you found someone else’s recipe and tried to follow it?

There have been folks that have used their own Unidentified Cooking Utensils to produced recipes and some have worked better than others. Share yours!

Or perhaps you can follow a recipe. but not create one and there is this fascinating recipe that you need created for you by someone with the right skills?

The reverse might also be a consideration: What IRL foods are missing in Azeroth?

Sharing some deliciousness are:

Edenvale from The Gamer’s Fridge (who’s blog theme is this Shared Topic)

Aliera from The Violet Scribe

Ophelie from The Bossy Pally and the Giant Spoon

Gladiola and Manners from The Ready Check

Next week’s Shared Topic invites us to think about our characters (and ourselves) and how we identify them/ourselves within the game. Do you think of yourself as a healer first? As a warrior? As a raider? Share your thoughts in a blog post and post a link in the thread at Blog Azeroth so that we can all read them!

Netherhood Welcome Wagon – The Ready Check

Hello Everyone! I’d like you to join me in welcoming Gladiola and Manners of The Ready Check.

Gladiola and Manners started playing WoW during the Burning Crusade. Not knowing each other, the two of them met during the first months of the WotLK when Gladiola joined Manner’s guild. After many late night talks and conversations, Gladiola and Manners started dating and have been a force to be reckoned with ever since!

Between the two of them, they have raided on many different toons throughout their WoW careers, remaining flexible to help their guilds, while still being able to raid together. Right now, they are both enjoying the game from a healer’s perspective, and couldn’t be more thrilled with making the green bars go right! In game you can find Gladiola and Manners raiding, taking part in PvP, chasing achievements or immersing themselves into the lore.

Gladiola and Manners started The Ready Check as a way to connect with current and past guildmates and keep in touch with real life friends who also enjoy WoW. They focus maining on their experiences in raiding and chasing achievements, with the occasional addon review.

You will be able to find advice on things such as soloing firelands trash or navigating Mr. Robot. You can also read about many of the adventures that Gladiola and Manners take. Or perhaps you are more interested in learning about the ElvUI or farming for Posideus.  Whatever tickles your fancy, you are sure to find something fun and intriguing to read!

I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait to see what other adventures Gladiola and Manners share with us!  Welcome to the Blogosphere!


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: The Most Balanced It’s Ever Been

After a couple of week’s hiatus due to me moving AGAIN and not be able to get my internet working until two weeks later, the Shared Topics are back! This week’s Topic was suggested by Ringo Flinthammer of Flintammer Hall, who was inspired by the words of our favourite crab:

Ghostcrawler recently said that, in his estimation, the game is the most balanced it’s ever been. Agree? Disagree? And if it’s the most balanced, does that mean it’s enjoyable for you at the moment — have there, in other words, been more enjoyable, if less balanced, moments in the past?

Speaking out on game balance are:

Oathblade from Info about the World of Warcraft from the Altaholic

Typhoonandrew from TyphoonAndrew’s – Eye of the Storm

Aliera from The Violet Scribe

And next week we’ve got a really creative topic, that also happens to be close to my heart: WoW and food. Trying WoW recipes in real life, talking about recipes that should be in WoW but aren’t, inventing WoW recipes… Now that I think about it, I’m starving!

Post your take on the topic in your blog and share a link to it on the Shared Topic thread at Blog Azeroth!

And check out this sneak peak at upcoming topics:
Identity & Affiliation
Bags and Bank Capacity…
