Shared Topic: Home Sweet…

This week’s timely Shared Topic was suggested by Sionel of Eight Paws about the place in Azeroth that feels most like a home to our character or characters:

What does ‘home’ mean in your book? Do you have a particular home in Azeroth – a place you feel you belong, that you know like the back of your hand, or that you feel more comfortable in than anywhere else? Would this be different for different characters or different factions, or is there just a place that really resonates with you? Do you think Cataclysm will prompt you to find new and different turf, or will you be heading back there first thing to see what might have changed? If it is destroyed, how do you think that will affect your experience of the game, or your characters’ lives? Or do you think the whole idea of having a home doesn’t even really apply to a game?

The answers were as diverse as could be: everyone has their own definition of “home” in game. Check out those of:

Sionel from Eight Paws

Elkagorasa from Elkagorasa the Casual

Cryptic from Blessing of the Grove

Kallixta from Kallixta’s Notes

Erinys from The Harpy’s Nest

Akabeko from Red Cow Rise

Tedluck from Good Morning Azeroth

Dragonray from Azerothian Life

Next week’s Shared Topic is about classes and raiding. Why would a raid bring your class along? How can you play your class in a way to secure a spot in a raid? Write about it and share a link to your post in the thread at Blog Azeroth!

mir_twb Hey Buckaroos and uh… Buckaraas? (that just doesn’t look right) We’re LIVE this Saturday, as usual, with the most awesome StealthySlyth a Senior Gaming and MMO Editor for Gaming Angels! She writes their Monthly ”The State of Azeroth” column in addition to keeping us all up to date with everything else WoW and MMO. Warning that we might start a little later than normal, but I’ll try to keep everyone up to date on what is going on via Twitter ( )

  • Where do I go? To participate on the live show, you will need to go to the TNB Live Show page to connect with the stream. See, totally easy. If you are having issues then go to the Ustream page. Don’t forget to register/login to UStream so you can chat with us!
  • Some general ground rules:
    1. Be nice. If you say very inappropriate things be aware you will be kicked from the room. We are doing this to have a great time, come with a beer, come during a raid, come how you wish, just don’t come to cause trouble.
    2. You may ask questions to the participants during the show, but we reserve the right to use them if and when we can.

Episode 106 – A Con To Remember

P1010908 Hey! We’re back from Blizzcon 2010 and busy recuperating still. This week’s show, of course, is all about Blizzcon! But we don’t just sit around and talk about it, we asked YOU what you thought about Blizzcon this year. We got some emails, a voicemail and even brought on 2 past guests (and TNB meetup attendees) to give us their lowdown.

Besides all that your hosts are joined by Daewin (from Polygamerous and RGCG) and Stop (from The Stoppable Force) to help us commentate on the emails and give their impressions of the goings on. We also talk about the meetup and go through all the great stuff we gave away.

Oh, if you were on the receiving end of our giveaway at Blizzcon (you won something) please email and let us know who you are and what you won. We really want to get a post together with info from each of the winners. If you won something you can “pose” with, get a picture and we’ll add that too!

SPONSOR – UGT Servers! Ventrillo Servers for Your Guild!

Shared Topic: The Way of the True *Class*

Don’t get me started on what makes a good paladin… I could go on for days! Actually, I probably would have, had my computer not experienced some health issues landing it in computer surgery for for the next couple of weeks.

Fortunately, others participated in the Shared Topic suggested by Rakhman of the appropriately named blog Way of the Druid, listing titles, achievements, attitudes, mounts and more that would belong to a true member of a given class.

What flavour items and achievements would make a character of your class truly a member of said class. For the Druid class I have come up with some (fairly obvious) things.

What about your class? Which items, titles, mounts, achievements exist in the World of Warcraft which a true master of the class would possess? How would you go about getting them today?

Participating were:

Rakhman from Way of the Druid

Icedragon from Druid Main

Aliera from The Violet Scribe

Kallixta from Kallixta’s Notes

Ringo Flinthammer from Flinthammer Hall

This week, in the Blog Azeroth Shared Topics forum, we’re going to blog about the location or locations in game that feel like home. Like home to a single character, to multiple characters, to you the player, that’s up to personal discretion. The world is about to be shattered, is your in-game home about to be destroyed? Changed? Blog about it and post a link over at Blog Azeroth!

And please, please, please! If there’s a topic you’d love to see discussed, don’t hesitate to suggest it in our Shared Topic forums! We’re about to run out of topics and we love new ideas! (We’re also very friendly and don’t bite at all.)
