Shared Topic: Classic Meta achievements

What crazy stunts do you remember pulling in Vanilla (or early Burning Crusade), just for fun? Are you disappointed that there aren’t any achievements for killing old school bosses in an alternative way? Ryyus of I Gem Crit has just the Shared Topic for you!

Mount rewarding meta achievements are here to stay, But what if achievements Look like if they were around from classic forward? So i figured, make some metas for older raids or instance clusters, Name and design some achivements puns and all and design a reward fit for them (no flying mounts in MC etc) This seems like, for one Pun GOLD also a nice way of being nostalgic without open “IN MY DAY!” talk.

Proposing interesting achievements were:

Ryyus of I Gem Crit

Relevart of Relevart’s Druid Reliquary

Natarumah of Twisted Faith

Mishaweha of Me, Myself…and all of them

PixelatedExecutioner of Pixelated Executioner

Excandersham of Excandershams Wow Guides

This week’s Shared Topic is an opportunity to pull out your RP skills, or not if RPs not your thing there’s still plenty to say, as you describe how NPCs view your character’s class. Have fun getting creative and exploring the relationships characters have with various NPCs. And when you’re done, post a link to your work in the thread at Blog Azeroth so we can all read it.

As for upcoming topics, be on the lookout for:
Group relations: how to assist/protect
What would you change in the UI with Cataclysm?
What mementos have you kept and why?

Shared Topics: A Picture Tells a Thousend Words; and What Should Give Guild Rep

You get another two for one Shared Topic package deals this week!

The first topic, from two weeks ago, was suggested by Nenunial of The Rambling Draenei Death Knight. Giving us an opportunity to show off our drawing (or at least our screenshotting) skills, she proposed posting a screenshot or fanart and talking a bit about it.

You know the saying, a picture tells a thousand words? It’s true! But, for us WoW players, that also extends to screenshots and fanart.

So, include a screenshot, some fanart, or even some art that you create yourself, and tell what it reminds you of. Does it make you smile? Remember a hilarious circumstance in a heroic with some guildies? Or even mutter to yourself, “They really should nerf ___insert class here___”?

Be inspired by screenshots and WoW artwork, and blog about it!

Participating were:

Nenunial of The Rambling Draenei Death Knight

Relevart of Relevart’s Druid Reliquary

RestoDude of RestoDude

Feraltree of FeralTree

Mishaweha of My, myself… and All of Them (she cheated and did a second post too)

Ringo Flinthammer of Flinthammer Hall

Erinys of The Harpy’s Nest

Pndrev of Prime Time Casual

Anaia of Tears of a Goddess

Amaranth of Love and War in Azeroth

Anslym of Bag Overflow

Poptart of Poptartica

Aestiah of She Can’t DPS

Anexxia of Bible of Dreams

Aaand for last week’s Shared Topic, Anexxia was inspired by the new guild features in Cataclysm and asked us what we thought could increase (or decrease!) our rep with our guild.

While the details around the Guild system are being held close to the vest by Blizzard, I think we all have some opinions about what should give you rep with your guild. Or even, perhaps what should give you NEGATIVE rep.

Sharing their ideas were:

Anexxia of Bible of Dreams

Relevart of Relevart’s Druid Reliquary

Revoemag of Siphoned Life

Morynne of Marks-365

Variant Avatar of Variant Avatar

Excandersham of Excandersham’s Wow Guides

Redhawks of Redhawks’ Gaze

Psynister of Psynister’s Notebook

Zalduun of Blessing of Fish

As for this week’s Shared Topic, we’re coming up with Achievement ideas. But not just any achievements- classic WoW achievement. Take a walk through memory lane and think up some possible achievements for the bosses in the Old World Raids, for some of the more interesting quests or more! After you blog about it, be sure to share a link to your post in the thread at Blog Azeroth.

And just in case you’re curious about some upcoming topics, here are the next three:
How your class is viewed
Group relations: how to assist/protect
What would you change in the UI with Cataclysm?

Episode 96 - RP in the Stream

Resource Site Spotlight - World of Raids

World of Raids is a general WoW site that offers many of the same features that you can find on more popular sites like Wowhead and MMO Champion. And certainly, there are similarities to those juggernauts. WoR boasts a robust forum community, Blue Post Tracker and Cataclysm updates, and tutorials and guides. The guides are hit & miss, with some being up-to-date and helpful for any player, while others are woefully out of date and will help you get the most out of your level 70 endgame character.

There are, however, a few aspects of the site that separate them from the aforementioned fare. The videos section is great for compiling numerous guild takedowns of particular bosses. Most of us have our go-to website for boss strategies, but my guild has often found alternative strategies used by other guilds to be useful when our initial strat fails. So instead of trolling through youtube videos looking for something new or helpful, this can be a quicker fix.

The forums, among numerous topics, have an excellent section dedicated to WoW Lore and Lore-based endeavors such as fan fictions and machinima.

These, in addition to the broad functionality and scope of the site, make it a one-stop shop for players looking for a new website to go for their WoW info and discussion.

The resource site spotlight is a “weekly” blog written by Arthemystia from, in his quest to find every useful WoW website on the internet.
