This is a challenge to all bloggers, podcasters and readers and listeners of blogs and podcasts.
There have been two exciting developments over the weekend.
Not one, but TWO new community forums have opened, both dear to my heart.
I have been a little tardy in spreading the word on this one, but I see that other Mage blogs have been doing their bit, and WoW.com gave it a plug the other day, so I didn’t feel I was failing the Mage community.
However, on the off chance that you only read one Mage blog, and that’s this one, let me tell you about it… (more…)
Well Alltop has already come through with a beauty for me.
I saw this topic from a couple in azeroth: Coolest. WoW Forum Post. Ever.
And I must say, that as a father of a little one, yes it is the coolest WoW Forum Post. Ever.
And it’s a Mage post to boot!
Here it is if you want to go straight there (it’s a long thread.. but the 1st post nails it):
Gnomer & Out!
Now with the demise of Subcreation, I think the question should be reviewed again.
Is Eliist Jerks enough for the vast magority of the Mage population, or is it a little too high end?
Should someone create PlusDPS.com?
Gnomer and Out!
No, this isn’t actually a blog about the blog by the name “Forever a Noob“, however the title and content of this post is definitely inspired by the aforementioned blog’s title.
Get on with it Gnome, you are rambling…. actually delirious is probably a better word.
I was just thinking, while listening to the TwistedNether podcasts, about how I always assume that everyone knows so much more about the game than I do (OK, with the exception of the 9 million people that don’t read or intend to improve upon their abilities beyond the talent selection screen.. assuming they know it is even there). Now, don’t get me wrong, I am not trying to say I know it all… in fact, rather the opposite.
It occurs to me that the ones “holding”, or more importantly spreading the knowledge, are also the ones that are able to acknowledge that they have gaps in their knowledge, or… are Forever a noob. (more…)
With my limited contiguous in-game time, I have found that the easiest/most efficient way for me to grind for mats & cash is to grind the Auction House (AH).
Probably 3 to 4 days a week, while doing household chores, I do a scan of the AH, the let Auctioneer’s bottom scanner call out to me (where ever I am in the house) when it finds a potential bargain.
Even though I have a fair grasp in the AH, I still have a lot to learn. My cash on hand is rarely more than 5,000, with potential 5,000 of sales in my bags or on the AH. Unfortunately I spend it as fast, if not faster than I pull it in (Mind you… what is the point of having more if it isn’t being used.. maybe 5,000 is the right balancing point).
Anyway, I will discuss mods & techniques in other posts, for now I want to point you to some resources I use. (more…)
