WoW Twitterparty: Finalized!

Do you play WoW? Do you have a Twitter account? It’s party time!

Join your Twitter friends Friday, March 4th atĀ 5pm PST/6pm MT/ 7pm CST/ 8pm EST for a party onĀ Fizzcrank – US!

We’ll roll some DKs, terrorize the starting area, and then attack the unsuspecting in Alterac Valley in a massive wave of under-geared PHEAR!

TO DO:

  1. Go to Fizzcrank – US
  2. Roll a Death Knight with your Twitter name on either faction. (They can look like your main or not, as you’re so inclined.) If you would like to participate in the Alterac Valley PvP Death Knight Attack, please roll anĀ Alliance DK.
  3. Meet up at the DK starting area for a fun few minutes or an entire evening of Ā chatting, /mooning, group-pwning the starting area, and the Alterac Valley DK Sweep.

We’ll will be on Vent and Mumble; both have been volunteered (thanks to Time Wasted Tuesday and Spazmoosifer!). Vent and/or Mumble details will be /whispered to anyone who messages me in-game, to avoid broadcasting the info all over the internets; I’ll be playing Discopriest.

I’ll be there as an Alliance-flavored @DiscoPriest; see you then!

PS – Please do feel free to steal the Twitter DK for your own blog or website. I made it, so no one will come after you. My gift to the Twitterverse!

On Thursdays, It’s Your Turn In The Pit

Zelmaru at Murloc Parliament has been running a magical graphic feature called the Bee Pit:

TheĀ Bee Pit is where people whoĀ annoy us ought to be thrown.

Annoying PUG? Toss them in the pit.

Someone ā€œforgotā€ to enchant his gear for the third raid in a row? Ā Into the pit!

Zel is as funny as she is charming, and when she requested a guest-drawn Bee Pit from your truly, I couldn’t refuse. Happily she’s decided to turn guest-drawn bee pits into a feature- Bee Pits In The Style Of Your Favorite WoW Cartoonist, if you will- and I’d direct all my cartooning brethren over there RIGHT NAOW!

Meanwhile, the rest of us can enjoy the fruits of her bee pit labors in the Bee Pit Gallery.

Cataclysm Comic Contest Winner: Character Portrait

The Cataclysm Comic Contest has at long last drawn to a close. Lady RNG was employed to choose the winners, and comic creation commenced immediately. The third prize- a portrait of the character of your choosing in the style of Disciplinary Action Adventures- went to WoW Insider’s own Fox van Allen. Despite his misguided attempts to play a shadow priest, we like Fox and were delighted to portray his belf Foxlight, fabulous member of the Choose My Adventure series and redoubtable teen idol. Foxlight, this one’s for you.

Raid Boss Theme Songs

While thinking about my raid playlists yesterday, it occurred to me that it would be highly amusing to try to match the ICC bosses to their own personal theme songs. (Please note, I’m not advocating the songs themselves- some might burn your ears off with Suck).

These are my votes, but I’d love to see others take a crack at it!

Lord Marrowgar
George Thorogood – Bad To The Bone

Lady Deathwhisper
The Cult – Spiritwalker

(Gunship Battle /Ā Interlude:
Blues Image – Ride Captain Ride)

Deathbringer Saurfang
Mahalia Jackson – Power In The Blood

Festergut
Mason Williams – Classical Gas

Rotface
Frank Zappa – I’m The Slime

Professor Putricide
Thomas Dolby – (S)he Blinded Me With Science

Blood Prince Council
The Chemical Brothers – Under The Influence

Blood-Queen Lana-thel
The Eagles – Witchy Woman

Valithria Dreamwalker
Concrete Blonde – Heal It Up

Sindragosa
Paula Abdul – Cold Hearted Snake

The Lich King
Coldplay – Viva La Vida

Holier Than Thou: Basic Priestsources

The web abounds with resources for priests, but separating out the wheat from the chaff can be an exhausting slog. The following is a brief but comprehensive list of priest-centric resources that don’t suck, won’t give you a virus, and don’t try to sell you gold.

GENERAL REFERENCE

PlusHeal: Extensive forums for all healer types, with excellent priest-specific boards.
World of Matticus: A group-run blog from multiple healing perspectives.
BobTurkey: Theorycrafting and healer math.
Spiritual Guidance at WoW.com: A dual-author column focusing on priest healers on Mondays and priest DPSers on Wednesdays. The healer writer is dull as ditchwater, but the shadow priest is ace.

DISCIPLINE

Disciplinary Action
Tales of a Priest
–Ā Righteous Orbs

HOLY
Priest Is The Word
Holy Form
Holy Fire Spec: A blog dedicated to DPSing in a Holy spec. So weirdly fab I had to include it (though even he admits he’s not a meter-topper).

SHADOW

Pugnacious Priest
Misery
Twisted Faith: A super-helpful comprehensive guide to raids, leveling, and the like.

ADD-ONS

Vudho is an excellent healer add on but can be (well, was for me) extremely intimidating to start using. Check out Tamarind’s idiot-friendly guide to Vudho setup at Righteous Orbs.
