I’ve got just enough time for a quick link love list this Wednesday. Here are some things I’ve been reading that I’ve really enjoyed the past few days.
Alas over at Kiss My Alas hopes to see many tanks of four or five thousand gearscore come into the server. This is laugh out loud funny. “It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single tank in possession of a good GearScore, must be in want of a raid team.”
Krizzlybear from Frost Is The New Black tackles a subject near and dear to my heart in his post Lament of the 10-man Raiding Guild. It’s about why the disparity between ten and twenty-five person content is making things hard for folks who really do believe that tens are a viable mode of progression, and not just a footnote to twenty-fives.
Incidentally, we strict tens folks are still here, although I hate calling us that. It makes it sound like we’re into something kinky that I shall not mention (the last time I made a joke about that, it comprised my site hits for weeks, along with references to the chick with no pants at the end of Scarlet Monastery. Pugging is pretty risque, let me tell you.)
Gameldar at WoW in an Hour looks at the trouble with pugs , and also why his friends’ list is shrinking, something Veneretio talked about (see: The Dungeon Tool is ruining your chances of raid tanking.) I find myself wondering about this, too. I’ve been pugging since level twenty and only met one or two people from my own server, one of whom was among the rudest I’d met. I have no “reputation” as a decent healer among anyone except possibly people who read this blog, and even then it’s all hearsay… Plus I told you folks that I let my tanks die and twitter while I heal. These are meant to be well-kept secrets, not exactly confidence inspiring.
Also, the Great Blog Noblegarden Egg Hunt that Angelya from Revive and Rejuvenate organized is now over. Congrats to the winners! And if my egg gave you any trouble, I’m very sorry, I thought I’d be all sneaky and clever but not TOO sneaky and clever. I realized when I started hunting eggs myself that most people had hidden them in images, or in parts of their blog most easily accessed (About this blog, etc.) Whoops! Don’t hate me, and if you’re new to my blog after having searched for my egg in vain and now hate me, I’m sorry. I’m nice, really. There were many eggs I didn’t find, I eventually just threw in the basket and cheered on the more dedicated folks. So I hope everyone had a good holiday if you celebrate holidays, and good chocolate if you don’t celebrate them… And if you don’t celebrate chocolate, you’re at the wrong blog entirely.
