As mentioned yesterday, Larisa and I were asked some time back to write some guest posts for a Mage blogger that was (and maybe still is) returning to the fold.

- Gnomes is /silly
So in the interests of maintaining an appropriate level of silliness in the face of a deadly serious and burning topic, I present to you my preparations for Fire Mage Raiding.
The essential Fire Mage Raiding Checklist.

Nope you need to get out and grind the mats for the essential consumables, the ones with the following attributes (more…)
