Just got into the Beta and not sure where to start or what to expect? Check out the FAQ after the break. It answers a lot of the common questions I see in Stormwind general chat.
Looking for something fun to do in Stormwind? Help Yin find her lost balloons and earn a cool Alliance Balloon pet from the quest Blown Away. A quest that reminds me of Pixar’s Up! and always brings a smile my face.
Quick Shot – A column sharing pictures, screenshots and photos related to WoW.
Bringing Lil XT out to see us crush his dad was funny in a cruel sort of way. So is running towards the boss and summoning the pet to trigger the “start the fight” sound file.
Its the Tuesday maintenance update. Last week was a strange one, with the announced maintance that was at the last minute changed into a limited maintenance for some realms at the last minute. I was planning to get more done on the Blog but that derailed my plans. On the plus side I got most of my weeklies and VOA done early. My characters took it easy for the most part, just doing dailies and a little questing. A nice surprise was Strand Crawler showing up for three of my alts (including Paia) in the daily fishing rewards. By doing less raids there was still a lot of content pumped out with several addon reviews and and a good look at the profession changes coming in Cataclysm.
I spent this maintenance doing some real life stuff so not as much content as I would like, but never fear, more is in the cooker. The big news openning this week is the annoucement of the Beta Test for the Iphone/Web Remote Auction House App. Blurring the line between offline and online WoW life, you can now stay a competitive auctioneer even in a board meeting and sell off your crap while taking one. I’ll have a post up on that shortly.
The Achievement Hunter is a column highlighting fun or interesting achievements in WoW and tips for completing them.
After i wrote my post on Alyx going after the Chef’s Hat achievement, it got me thinking that it might be nice to do a column on achievements I am pursuing, so The Achievement Hunter was born. I am by no means a hardcore achievement hound like my friend Samandiriel who has both the Winterspring Frostsaber, Loremaster, and the Insane title. But when there are fun rewards or titles to go for I like trying for them. Children’s Week is upon us and I am trying to get the meta on all my alts. No mean feat as I hate PVP and The School of Hard Knocks achievement is going to kick my ass. More after the break .
