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,

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!

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 fallingleaves51@gmail.com, with the subject line “Welcome Wagon.” She’ll do her best to highlight as many as possible!

Shared Topic: Do your alts know each other? and Wierd Gaming Habits

Usually I get away with waiting two weeks to post Share Topics by saying that I’m waiting for most posts, but the Topics for the past two weeks both had incredible participation. I have no excuses for slacking, but I did slack, and for that I apologize. But the good news is, we get two Topics to read this Sunday!

The first, from two week ago, was suggested by Kamalia of Kamalia et alia and was concerning the nature of the relationship between a player’s alts.

I’ve always considered that my various characters know each other. Each one of them may not personally know every single one of the others, but they are all connected in a web of family and friend relationships. I know that other bloggers, most famously Ratshag, and also Grimmtooth, write about their characters as being a “family of misfits” type of community. And so I’ve been wondering, how did your alts “become the Brady Bunch”?

Whether you have many alts or just a few, do they know each other? Do they have some sort of relationship as people living in Azeroth, or is sending materials and money between them just a game mechanic for you? If your characters do know each other, what kind of relationships do they have, and how did those relationships come into being? If they don’t, what functions do your different alts serve?

Akabeko from Red Cow Rise

As for this week’s Topic, it was suggested by Akabeko of Red Cow Rise who asks about our personal gaming idiosyncrasies.

Most everyone has a routine for when they play WoW, but do you have any habits that are particularly eccentric? Do you always log out in the same place, try on other’s gear when inspecting, or obsessively spam a macro or trinket at weird times? Out of game, do you have to crack your knuckles every time you take a flight path, put on your PJs in order to really get into the game, or tab out immediately upon wiping?

Sharing their habits are:

Next week’s Topic is about guilds. Guilds come is all sorts of structures and different people put varying amounts of efforts into their guilds. But, at the end of the day, who does the guild belong to? The guild leader? The founding members? No one? Write your thoughts on your blog and share a link back to your post in the thread at Blog Azeroth!
