  • 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.
  • 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. I will be monitoring the chat room and if I can I will use the comments during the show. We love that you are with us, but I will have to weave them in. Even if it isn’t asked, we all appreciate your questions

Outside of that, we will love to have you join us and partake in an enlightening discussion that is sure to follow! Hope to see you there!

Shared Topic: World of Awecraft

While fumbling around Azeroth, we’ve all experienced that “ooooooo” moment of awe at some point or another. Maybe it was when someone “got their (decked in epics) main” to get your group through Deadmines as you were leveling your first character. Maybe it was finally reaching Crossroads, only to see the place get destroyed by a single level ??? character. Or maybe it was entering Ulduar for the first time, immersing yourself in the titanic vastness of the ancient prison.

Elsen from View From the Branches shared a personal moment of awe as she suggested last week’s Shared Topic:

A suggestion from me here…

In a random conversation with a good friend of mine, whilst he bubbled his way off Thunderbluff after collecting the elders achievement, was how we first felt that very first time we encountered the ?? of a high level of the opposite faction.

It became very much like, “i remember my first time that…” and one of the things I remember was how in awe I was off this big tauren who came and stomped his/her way through Astranaar, killed all the NPCs and in my tiny, level 20 druid mind I thought – I CAN HELP!!! I cast a rejuv on a guard, and he /laugh ed at me, and one shotted me.

I was bewildered, confused and totally in awe.

There were many times during my first year on WoW I was awed by something or other – even when I walked into Naxx as a level 80 for the first time, I felt awed.

I’d be curious to see if we can get bloggers writing about what gave them that sense of wonderment when they started playing WoW, started PvPing, started raiding…whatever it was that made you gasp!

Quite a number of bloggers were inspired by this, writing and photographing their own World of Awecraft moments. Reporting back to Blog Azeroth were:

Gazimoff from Mana Obscura

Rag from World of Spaz

Dwarven Pinball from The Dwarven Pinball

Tarinae from A Healadin’s Tear

Saniel from Primal Precision

Windsoar from Jaded Alt

Sindei from Six Inch Heals

Snobbybelf from The Snobby Blood Elf

Vrykerion from Oddcraft

Alamara from Almost Epic

Talfrunt from Leveling Resto

Kraden from Illumination

Daraia from Daughter of Ravenholdt Manor

Saffron from Adventures from a Casual

This week at Blog Azeroth, our Shared Topic is Starting Over. If you had to start the game all over again, what would change about your choice of class, race and playstyle? Would you do it all over again, or would you go for something completely different? Head over to the thread at Blog Azeroth to participate or to see who’s checked in with responses so far!

Of course, you are also welcome to join in on any past or upcoming Shared Topics listed in our Shared Topic forum as well. Here’s a sample of some upcoming topics:

Blog Azeroth Event: Noblegarden Egg Hunt

Looking for a way to experience Noblegarden outside of game, a way that doesn’t involve sitting around and obsessively clicking on eggs?

Angelya from Revive & Rejuvenate is hosting a Blog Noblegarden Egg hunt to celebrate the season! Between now and April 4th, bloggers will be hiding fancy eggs on their blogs for all (bloggers and readers alike) to find. On Easter Sunday (April 4th), Angelya will reveal the list of participating blogs and the hunt for eggs will begin!

The first two egg-hunters to find them all will receive a character portrait drawn by the talented comic and Warcraft fan artist Mason Cole!

To participate as a blogger or to find out more, get in touch with Angelya on her event post, on twitter (@angelya_eu), by email (wowegghunt at gmail dot com) or on the thread at Blog Azeroth before Midnight GMT, Saturday April 3rd.

Happy hunting!

Resource Site Spotlight - Overachiever

Ever stand around in Dalaran listening to the mindless prattle of Trade chat? Or on top of the Orgrimmar bank? Or wherever Allis congregate en masse to trade Chuck Norris jokes and discuss the varying merits of the ORLY owl vs. the STFU Truck? Ever think that maybe you could be doing something more useful during these sequences?

I don’t achievement grind. It’s not related to shooting bosses, so it’s low on my priority list. But we all know someone (or many people) who do. It’s a valid and sometimes entertaining way to spend your time in the game. And in a recent podcast, our dashing Twisted Nether leader Fimlys mentioned an addon that he loves that helps with this endeavor. After trying it out, I can see the appeal, even as someone who isn’t too into achievements. So I wanted to highlight it here for the Overachievers (har!) in the WoW community.

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

So if the bored Trade chat watcher I mentioned is you, let Overachiever suggest a nearby or easy-to-complete achievement for you.  Other useful features include achievement trackers to show you your progress, as well as in-game tooltips to remind you to do something, such as killing a critter or typing /love for the famous “All the Squirrels…” achievement.

If you like to collect achievements, or just want to make better use of your in-game time, you owe it to yourself to try this out.
