Mage Guide to Ignite @ Spicytuna
As a slightly newbish Fire Mage, all I really knew about Ignite before reading this was “moar crits = big damage”.  Tuna explains clearly how the actual mechanic works, and what “Ignite Munching” is.

Tier set bonuses @ Untokk feat. Nordhbane
Nordhbane does a nice little review of the past, present and future Hunter set bonuses, comparing their use and effectiveness.

Hunter A-Z @ steady shot
There’s something Hunter related for every letter of the alphabet! (except Y, apparently…)

Scourge Chat Log @ WoW Official Forums
Okay, okay… it’s not from a blog.  But there have been blog posts about it!  AND I heard about it from the Blog Azeroth chat!  AND IT’S HILARIOUS!  So read it.

Twitter Musings @ Pixelated Executioner
“Your momma’s so fat, when she joins a party, it becomes a raid group!”

A raiding guide, from a newbie, for newbies @ Master’s Call
Faulsey has written a great 3 part guide on getting yourself ready to hit the raiding scene for the very first time.  It’s even a good refresher for those who have been raiding for a long time, to make sure you’re doing everything you should be!

BigWigs vs Deadly Boss Mods Showdown @ Omen of Clarity
Come witness the long awaited battle between the two top contenders in the Boss Mod world!  Who are you rooting for?

Hunter Techniques for Sartharion and Gluth @ Amava Knows Aggro
I always love seeing guides about pet tactics for Hunters (even if it’s from a Survival hunter!)  Amava has some tips for pet survivability on Sarth, as well as a guide for kiting Gluth’s adds.

Fun and Silly Guild Activities @ Tree Bark Jacket
As the “Guild Events Officer” of my guild, I like to run events for my guild.  Keeva writes about one in particular that I’d now like to try, a speed clear through Karazhan with level 80s.

WoW Headlines by Nance from Alterac Volley
This isn’t a blog post, but rather a World of Warcraft blog aggregator.  Want to learn about a new class?  Go subscribe to the RSS feed for that class and find some great new blogs!  It’s still a little rough around the edges, but it does the job!

With Friends Like These, Who Needs Epic Mounts? @ WoW, Eh?
Just discovered this comic, and I’d recommend it to anyone!  Funny?  Yep!  WoW related?  You bet!  Canadian?  Even better!  I’d have to say this one is my favourite!

Raid Achievement Progress Report @ From Cow to Chicken
Pilsner has outlined some quick tips for getting your [Heroic: Glory of the Raider] achievement, and also listed out which ones our guild has gotten.  If you’re working on this one, I recommend reading what she’s got to say!

The Mana Loom: Aegwynn @ Critical QQ
Euripedes tells the tale of Aegwynn and the birth of Medivh in a short summary.  It’s sure to quash your weekly desire for lore AND sexual innuendos all in one sitting!

Highlights from the Blogosphere (02/27 – 03/05)

Friday, March 6th, 2009

I’ve decided to add a new regular weekly post.  Is it because I’m too lazy to write for myself?  Maybe.  But I also want to share some of the great things I read from the Blogs that Other People Write, and to show them some link love!

Purple Heart @ Egotisical Priest
An epic story of someone else with an epic nerd-injury.  The only 2 injuries I’ve gotten in my life?  Twisted my ankle playing DDR and dented my shins carrying a giant CRT monitor up some sketchy stairs.

The Ultimate Hardcore Game @ TyphoonAndrew’s Eye of the Storm
A slightly humorous post about some things that hardcore gamers may be looking for.  However, the discussion that followed in the comments got me discussing the state of the game and the differences between Hardcore and Casual, quite a good discussion.

Basic Rules for a DPS Class @ Diaries of a Marksman Hunter
A few great rules that every person who plays a DPS class should follow!  Along the lines of, “It doesn’t matter how much DPS you do if you’re dead.”

Just a game? Not exactly @ Achtung Paznercow
A great post that says exactly what I always try to say when someone doesn’t understand how or why I am still playing this game.

Dr StrangeDueg or: How I Learned to Stop Failing and Love the Win Sauce @ Holy Dueg!
Doog’s opinion on which holy spells to use and why.  Nice basic pointers for people like me who are pretty new to raid healing.
