All MY Top Blogs in the one place


I have mentioned AllTop before, on a couple of occasions if memory serves me correct.

Basically it aggregates all sorts of feeds in one place, including WoWBlogs.

There is exciting news coming from AllTop, you can now create MyAllTop.. well, I guess YourAllTop, although you are welcome to check out my sample page.

Basically the idea is you register at AllTop, then you can pick all the feeds from AllTop that you want to follow, no matter what category, and build your own page.  This might be a smattering of WoW Blogs… I better be there! as well as some Frivolous real World feeds.

Anyway, you can check out the new features at AllTop.com, and sign up if the fancy takes you.


Check Out the Standard WoW Blog Page

or Check out My AllTop Mage Blog page

Remember, if a Blog you know and love isn’t present, you can also suggest it to them!

summoning-imp2Know your Twinks?

Want to write about it?

There have been thousands of readers through here in the last couple of weeks interested in twinking.

Twinking, as you can tell if you have read any of the rest of my blog, is not my main game, but maybe it’s yours.

So if you think you can write an original post (or more) about twinking Locks (or any class for that matter) at level 19 (or any of the other brackets) then drop me a line via the ContactGnome link above.

I get a pile of Google hits from people looking for twinking guides. Not just level 19 lock guides, but all levels and classes. So far all I have been able to deliver is the partially complete 19 Lock guide.

So if you have a passion for twinking, and would like to turn your hand at writing without the fuss and bother of creating and maintaining your own blog, then drop me a line.

You will receive the same reward for your writing as me, nothing but pleasure at seeing your posts appreciated. You will of course get full credit for your work.

Your posts would need to be well thought out and preferably take the potential twink by the hand, guiding them step by step through the leveling process, identifying the dangers, quests, routes and rewards. Gear, skill, talent and strategy guides for the prospective twink would be a bonus.

Have a think about it, research it if need be, then drop me a line.

Neutral Auction Houses

I was just listening to the hot tub edition #138 of The Instance and a question came up about why there are no Auction Houses in Shattrath or Dalaran.

Their answer, one I have heard many times before:

Because Blizzard wants people to continue to return to the Old World and it ensures life in quality but otherwise forgotten content.

But… But…

What about the Neutral Auction Houses. (more…)

Drawing the short straw: Racial Bonuses

I feel sorry for Gnomes, Draenei, Taurens and Blood elf.  Primarily Gnomes of course!

They have a racial bonus taken up with something completely useless… profession racial bonuses.

Let’s take a look.

  • Gnome
    * Engineering Specialist : 15 point skill bonus to Engineering (note, this also raises the cap by 15 at each level of Engineering).
  • Draenei
    * Gemcutting : 5 point skill bonus to Jewelcrafting (note, this also raises the cap by 5 at each level of jewelcrafting).
  • Tauren
    * Cultivation : 15 point skill bonus to Herbalism (note, this also raises the cap by 15 at each level of herbalism).
  • Blood elf
    * Arcane Affinity : 10 point skill bonus to Enchanting (note, this also raises the cap by 10 at each level of enchanting).

Yes yes, I hear you Forsaken, Trolls, Orcs, Night elves, Humans and Dwarves screaming out:

If you don’t want +5 to 15 to your skills, then we will take it!

Well, I am of a good mind to just give it to you… actually, you are welcome to my Gnome Engineering skill, cause it’s worth diddly squat to me!

Class Battle

A serious all out battle.

Every now and then this thought crosses my mind.

If there was a battle between two different classes, who would come out on top.

I don’t mean Arena 2v2, 3v3 or 5v5. I am thinking more along the lines of 40v40, 100v100 or 1,000v1,000.

A serious all out battle.

Let’s end the forum QQ with a deciding fight… winner takes all, looser QQ’s till the end of time. (more…)

Missed by that much…

I was really hoping to do some fishing in Orgrimmar tonight.

I was Twittering to RuneTap and Anea this morning about how it’s the only way I can fish… it’s too boring, so I am trying to turn it into an extreme sport.

I log in to WoW and I am greeted by all my characters “Pick Me!, Pick Me!”.

But I’m a Gnome on a mission, so I select Gnomeaggedon and log in.

Loading…. Loading… Loading…

I noticed some yellow [FredDagg has achieved x Achievement] this morning.

Normally I wouldn’t pay any attention to it… I mean I am so busy watching my achievements scroll by, I don’t have time to “Gratz” anyone else… but this one caught my eye…

This is just a random outflow of things from the last week

Turtle Mount

I was doing the Kalu’ak matchmaking daily on Friday night, when I had to stop and laugh at how silly the big seals look on their turtle mounts.


Next thought was how much more sensible a Gnome polymorph: turtle wielding Mage would look on the back of a turtle.

Then, on Sunday I see this at El’s Extreme Anglin’ and WoWInsider. I must think more positive thoughts, my dreams have been coming so true lately.

Meme Wanted, Apply Within

Blah Blah tagged me in blah blah meme and …

Hang on.. I care… maybe a little too much.

One of my favorite readers, commenters and twitterers tagged me.

I knew I was tagged the moment Syrana mentioned in Twitter that she has just posted a new Meme tag… I didn’t need to look, maybe I shouldn’t have looked… but I did look. (I also should have known that Megan was behind this insidious meme)

Unfortunately (for you) I have a hard disk full of “Wanted” images, so I am going to just keep on dishing them out over the coming days…

New WoW Storage Spaces (Redux)

New WoW Storage Spaces (Redux)

Larisa was reminding me on my place in the WoW blogging community (in a nice way) in a comment to my post a short one to Kriz (which wasn’t in anyway short…).
I in turn responded that I was a bit disappointed (yet not overly surprised) at the lack of comment on the blog at a time when 20% of my all time hits occurred in 2.5 days… Well apart from spam… I have been doing lots of bulk deletes.

So while checking my blog the other day I see another comment had come through. My 1st thought was I bet it’s going to be spam.. but I was pleasantly surprised… not only I was I enjoying reading the comment… but while I was reading it, another comment came in… just as I finish reading that… another one comes in.

  • All 3 comments from the same reader Quixota.
  • All 3 comments too good to leave hiding away in a post that is unlikely to get read again except by completionists and those spilling over from The Druid Team.

So, without further ado, here are Quixota’s comments (with a bit of very bad editing on my part to make them look more like a post), plus a couple of thoughts of my own… (more…)
