Shared Topic: Views on Your Class’ Gear

So the one week where I’m totally on top of things, is the week where no one reported back to the Shared Topic thread. Yet, due to the timing of the thread, a lot of bloggers participated without even knowing. So I’m going to do something a little unconventional: I’m going to go through my blog list and draw out the recent posts that fit in with the Topic for your reading pleasure. That’s right: your reading pleasure is always on my mind.

So what is this brilliant Topic that had everyone writing without realizing that it was a Shared Topic?

Gear sets.

It was suggested by Gavendo of Rapid Fire and just happen to coincide with the Tier 12 release.

What do you think of the current or past gear available to your class and specifically the gear only available to your class (such as tier sets). Does it look fitting? Does it look sexy or down-right embarrassing?

For the purpose of this post, let’s include “how do you like your set bonuses?” into the topic.

So to find out more about your class sets, check out:

If your post on class gear sets (doesn’t have to be Tier 12 specific, as long as it’s about class gear sets and it’s recent) wasn’t mentioned here, leave a comment so that I can update my blog reader!

If you’re sad because you missed this week’s Topic, don’t worry! You can do next weeks! It’s even along the same lines: Class Theories. Either speculate about what the future could hold, or blog about your thoughts concerning what we know so far of Patch 4.2. Be sure to link back to the thread at Blog Azeroth for some TNB link love next Sunday.

And we’re once again on the hunt for new Topics. Is there something you’d like to see your fellow bloggers discuss? Let us know in the Shared Topics forum at Blog Azeroth.

Netherhood Welcome Wagon – The Gamer’s Fridge

Hello Everyone!  I’d like you to join me in welcoming Edenvale of The Gamer’s Fridge.

Edenvale has been playing WoW with her husband since before the release of TBC. Together they tackle everything that WoW has to offer – from raiding content at their own pace, to PvP and generally social silliness often partaking in shenanigans cooked up by their guild mates. She loves meeting new members of the community, and finds the social network of the game very intriguing. One of the parts of the game that interests her the most is building those relationships and investing in those friendships, new and old alike.

Edenvale works as a cake decorator and baker in a bakery, and her knowledge of delicious treats has spilled over into some very creative blogging! In fact she’s envisioned some of Azeroth’s favorite dishes to be cooked in your very own kitchen! Don’t worry, even if your definition of cooking is opening the Ramen and dumping the noodles in the pan, Edenvale has recipes that you can easily prepare!

You won’t find any crazy ingredients or spices on my blog. Normal nerdy food for normal nerdy people. What I want is a WoW player to stumble upon my blog & say,”I have everything to make this in the kitchen. This will be fun!” No trudging all over town to find ingredients to make one meal.

You will find recipes ranging anywhere from Delicious Chocolate Cake and Fortune Cookies to Mulgore Spice Bread and Kaldorei Spider Kabobs!

Evendale has done a fantastic job at combining her creativity and her passion for food! It really looks like a ton of fun and I know that I can’t wait to experiment with some of these recipes myself! Welcome to the Blogosphere, Evendale!

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 Topics: Who Owns a Guild? and Character Guest Column

Following my newly installed tradition (which I do hope to break in the future), we have two exciting Shared Topics to, well, share.

The first, from two weeks ago, was suggested by Nube from The Lonely Pally about guild ownership:

Since Cata started, guilds matter more. In order to receive Guild benefits, everyone most work for them. In Wotlk, leaving a guild meant changing Guild Tags, in Cata it means TIME.

Does a Guild belong to those who lead it? Should we check Guild Etiquette?

Speaking up were:

Nube from The Lonely Pally

Unglar from Shredding Attacks

Aliera from The Violet Scribe

Kvenna from Kvenna

Christine from Christine’s Blog

Forz1 from Dented Armor

Typhoon Andrew from Typhoon Andrew – Eye of the Storm

Saz from World of Saz

Rustbeard from Little Blue Dog

Shadowfôx from Death Knights Don’t Blog

Morynne from Marks 365

Anslym from Bag Overflow

Herculano from Herc the Merk

As for our second topic, Akabeko from Red Cow Rise came up with the creative idea of letting one of our characters guest post on our blog:

Your character has been chosen to be published in the revered guest column section of a major publication (Ironforge Times, The Steamwheedle Port Journal, The Orgrimmar Post, etc). Share a clipping of their editorial, guide, meandering nostalgia piece, impassioned call to action, scathing political takedown, or shameless self-advertisement on your blog.

Check out the character guests posts from:

Akabeko from Red Cow Rise

Typhoon Andrew from Typhoon Andrew – Eye of the Storm

Aliera from The Violet Scribe

Squelchy from Blame Squelchy

This upcoming week, we’re Sharing the appropriately timed Topic of class gear sets. With tier 12 looks being revealed only a few days ago, quite a few us have our minds on gear sets! Write all about it on your blog and Share a link to your post in the thread at Blog Azeroth.

As a reminder, if you participate in the Topic, please include a link your post (not just your blog!) when replying to the thread. If you don’t provide a link for me to work with, I won’t be able to include you in this write-up.

If you’re itching to see what Topics are coming up, read up on the following:
