Episode 90 - Finally Fimlys

Wow.. Can’t believe it’s been 2 years already! We’re 2 years in and 90-odd shows (definitely odd).. This week we celebrate in style.. With YOU! Special Surprise? Fimlys sits on the hot seat.. No, he didn’t burn his tush.. Somehow he agrees to answer all the biting questions Nib (and the chatroom) can come up with. I think truth serum of some kind was involved. Anyway, in addition to waxing poetical about the whole genesis of this TNB thing (and just generally talking forever, as usual), the gang discusses a little more 3.3.5 information, gets you ready to be one of the first 7500 people in the queue to buy Blizzcon tickets and play YOUR “birthday” wishes and musings. Oh.. And the BEST Birthday Song EVAR!

Resource Site Spotlight - Chill Affect

While I slog through numerous PvP websites for both this blog as well as my own personal use (My 2’s team hovers around 1400 every season, but can’t seem to get any better. This must change.), this week I’m highlighting a lightweight add-on that is both convenient and aesthetically pleasing.

http://wow.curse.com/downloads/wow-addons/details/chill-effect.aspx

Chill Effect provides small UI tweaks, primarily to your character tab. Perhaps most strikingly, it removes your character picture so that you can view ALL of your character stats on a single page (as shown below on my woefully undergeared priest alt). Now, perhaps you like staring at your beautiful Blood Elf, and this isn’t for you. But for the frankly uglier races like Tauren, Night Elf and Orc, the removal of the pic is a blessing even without the added functionality.  I recently sold my soul to Blizzard to the tune of $25 for a race change in order to eek out the most dps possible.  Unfortunately this resulted in my new orc hunter looking like a large green wart.  I will not miss my character’s picture.

Similar changes make the other tabs more intuitive as well.  And there’s other small additions like new Resistances tooltips, which aid in understanding.  If an add-on existed (and I will be on constant lookout) that fixed ALL of Blizz’s faulty tooltips, that would truly be revolutionary.  Until then, Chill Effect won’t turn any heads, but it may help streamline your UI a bit more.

Shared Topic: Helping New Players

Do you help new players at all? What about clueless players in dungeons? Do you like to be helpful? Do you care? Are you just not that type of person? Or do you worry about being too pushy? Last week’s Shared Topic raised those questions after Nexdominus from There Will Be Blood asked us:

Do you help new players, if so in what way?

Participating were:

Elkagorasa from Elkagorasa the Casual

Nenunial from The Rambling Draenei Death Knight

Nexdominus from There Will Be Blood

Anslym from Totem Tossing

Spinks from Welcome to Spinksville!

Pndrev from Primetime Casual

Zan from Altoholic Anonymous

That Priest from Barrens Chat

Ravon1981 from WoW Titans

Pindleskin from Misguided

Redhawks from Redhawk’s Gaze

This week’s Shared Topic is about getting ready for Cataclysm. Are you ready for the next expansion? What are you doing to prepare for the leap? Write about it and share in the Blog Azeroth Shared Topic forum!

And The Counting Shall Be 2

anniversary Wow. I still can’t believe that we are coming up on our 2 year anniversary of the first episode! I think that was also our shortest episode ever. Way back in 2008, Bre and I had this idea. How about we create a podcast that talks about the WoW blogosphere? We took it and.. well, a co-host change, new graphics, a live show, 80+ interviews, lots of round tables, sponsors, Blizzcon and an amazing amount of the best fans anyone could ever ask for.. 2 Years later.. We’re getting close to 100 episodes.. We’ve got our second Blizzcon (well, 3rd for Nib, 2nd for our meetup) coming up in October.. And every week we get bigger and better (ok.. we try NOT to get bigger.. but.. we like to talk.. :P ).

So, Thank you ALL for your continued support of our grand vision! We really mean it when we say we couldn’t have done it without each and every one of you. You make what we do worth it.

We want to do something really special for our next couple of episodes. I’d love to get some voicemails, mp3 files, even emails if that’s all you can do from you guys.  ALL of you! If you have a blog, podcast, twitter account or are just a listener (who doesn’t have a twitter account?!?). We’re looking for “shout outs” .. Let us know what TNB has meant to you. Make it as long as you’d like. Pimp your blog/show/twitter/facebook/whatever.. Let us know where you want TNB to go in the future! (Mars, Draenor, Abyssal Maw?)

Thank you all again for being the amazing community you are. We look forward to providing you another 2 years of the best news, views and voices from across the Internether! Don’t forget to come to our next couple LIVE shows (remember on our new Tuesday recording schedule!). You never know when we might give something away!
