Forging Ahead

6 05 2009

Yes, my first post is a bad pun on the name of this blog. Yes, I find that hilarious.

Welcome! This will be a blog about my thoughts on my activities in World of Warcraft. I play a Death Knight named Shopshopshop in a “casualcore” (word blatantly stolen from Herding Cats) guild on the Medivh Server. I am primarily a DPSer, and I enjoy both smashing bosses and theorycrafting about smashing bosses. I’ve recently started PvPing to try and get a Druid in my guild the 2200-staff, which is apparently the Best-in-Slot tank weapon for Druids. This is actually the second blog I have started, the previous one being about my Druid. I had to stop writing because it was taking up too much of my time during school, even though I enjoyed it immensely. Now that Summer is afoot and I’m now essentially finished my undergrad degree, I have more time to devote to writing a WoW blog.

I want to use this space to talk about Death Knight-specific things such as specs, DPSing (and maybe tanking) advice, as well as my thoughts on guilds, raiding, PvP, hopefully in a helpful and informative way. I may also resort to sitting by the runeforges in Ebon Hold listening to what people say around them, and if they really are like water coolers for the dead among us.

Oh, I’m also frequently sarcastic. I hope you will find this blog to be an interesting read, a place for discussion and an outlet for my creativity. Enjoy!

Hey just want to say you have a really great resourceful and informative blog here. One the reason I’ve decided to leave a message here was that I started reading your blog earlier today while at work on my IPhone.

I found your blog somehow through Bighitbox I believe since I read there for Shaman stuff. Somehow though I stumbled on a link to your blog earlier today. And since then I’ve been reading all your blog entries going backwards on your blog. That’s quite a bit of articles and very informative posts I’ve read Death Knight related, Shaman with Heroism use, general and raiding articles. I’ve read and enjoyed them all.

So in the course of less than a day I’ve read your entire blog entirely and managed to stumble on the very first post. I guess I didn’t expect to. But it’s a great blog and just wanted to say enjoyed my time reading here.

I usually play a P.Paladin. I recently leveled a E.Shaman. Then recently blew off the corpse dust and leveling a Unholy Death Knight. So I guess I was looking somehow for a informative Death Knight blog. I guess I found yours. I guess a person can really do allot of reading on a little IPhone. Added you to my bloglist as well on my blog.

I noticed you linked to me after seeing a bunch of incoming traffic! Thanks for that and for all the kind words. Hope you enjoy levelling your DK – Unholy is definitely the way to go.
