I usually don’t have the patience for this kind of post — I spent more time tracking down these interesting posts that I enjoyed than I did reading them the first time around. That being said, while I don’t plan to do this type of thing very often, if you haven’t been introduced to some of these fabulous bloggers it’s about time! It’s also a good time for me to thank everyone who has made my first couple months in the WoW blogosphere so enjoyable and successful thus far. I hope you enjoy your travels, and I’ll see everyone back here on Friday!
Kae at Dreambound has done a nice synopsis of general changes coming our way once 3.3 hits. While you probably heard about the great raid for the cure over at Big Bear Butt, he also offers a more personal way to show compassion for a young boy suffering from cancer. Euripedes hit the nail on the head with his lovely rant against the new micro-transaction pets. Icee finished up her art contest — see her winners and ponder the wonders of a druid as a main.
As Cataclysm approaches, healers are hoping to get the same “fun overall” that tanks did for the release of Wrath. Llyra at Healing Way offered a series to make healing more fun: part 1, part 2, part 3. Cassandri at Hots and Dots had a scary experience with a hacker — not to throw in a spoiler, but her characters are still playable and her gear sets are intact. There’s also a new tree in town — The View from the Branches is shaping up to be a nice read, and especially useful resource for you reputation grinders.
And dragons — who doesn’t love them? Tamarind at Righteous Orbs has begun to rate them! Hate the faction champions? Can’t figure out why? Read Shopx3′s explanation over at Runeforge Gossip and it’ll all make sense. Stormstrike had an interesting take on the name of shaman’s new tier — middle earth anyone? And I simply loved Jaedia’s post about Maiev Shadowsong — while I played and loved the Warcraft games (battle chest anyone?) it’s nice to see the lore bug travel to new (to Warcraft series) players.
