Welcome to the Twisted Republic Blogcast!

Well, you’ve probably seen it coming. WoW is getting old. We’re getting tired of the grind. Patch after Patch after Patch. Cataclysm? BAH! It’s not going to fix anything! 5 more levels? Who needs em? Redoing the whole old world of Azeroth? Who asked for that? More instances, more raids, Paths of the Titans? Just more junk we need to deal with over and over and over.

So, what are we doing about it? Freaking out? No! We’re doing what any sane person would. We’re quitting. We’re done. We’ve had enough.. Welcome to a new age, a new twist, if you will, in the most twisted blogcast on the net. the Twisted Republic Blogcast!

Yeah, Right! That’s right, we’re going Star Wars! SW:TOR promises to be the most excited and engaging MMORPG to come along since Age of Conan and we’re jumping on that FULLY FUNCTIONAL BATTLESTATION while it’s still circling the moon of Endor. We’re punchin’ it and going to Light Speed here at TNB.. Or should i say TRB!

We’re ready, we’re willing and we’re able! Lich King? Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side! Get ready for the ride of a lifetime! Keep it tuned here (yeah, we’ll change the URL later!) for all your Star Wars: The Old Republic news, views and voices from around the internet. You’ll notice changes to the site as we convert over from WoW. Sorry for the dust, but we’ll get it all sorted out soon enough!

Something Is Afoot

fish_foot And it smells kinda fishy.. Your foot that is.. Oh wait..

No! Something is happening at TNB… Something.. Wonderful!

You are going to think it’s the most outrageous thing we’ve ever done!

Coming the changes are, yes..

Stay tuned… We’ll be right back! *click*

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?
