Ok, so the Theramore events been ongoing now for just under a week. I’m afraid I have to share the opinion of so many others that have gone before me this week. What were they thinking???
If you have ready the book “Tides of War” (a book that I enjoyed for the most part, minus a bit of niggling about Go’el’s part), then you probably know just how epic the happenings at Theramore were. Blizzard let us down in the implementing.
If you haven’t read the books, good luck trying to work out wtf just happened.
If you’re alliance, well, I read about the story line you guys got. I’m glad I don’t have a high enough item level to play that side.
And for everyone expecting a world event………. well…….
Don’t get me wrong, I will still be playing wow even though I’m disappointed. I look forward to playing dual panda’s in just a little over a day. I actually went out laptop shopping yesterday to make it easier to level it through my Refer a Friend ( I ❤ my Obsidian Nightwing). I plan on making the panda monk my new main, tank. Side note: the laptop was a decision I came to a long time ago for non-wow reasons, so haters can stop hating now.
But lets get down to the reasons you guys are here, the goodies! As I mentioned last week the blog will be on vacation for the next couple weeks. Fear not I will return. (Well, maybe you should fear since the returning theme is Hallows End for October!)
First up is a new Live Wallpaper. Showcasing the town in all it’s, er, pre-bombing splendor! You can get Dreamscene to run this on your desktop here.
Also as promised, here is the newest track from Thegreyfoo
If you are interested in a bit of leveling music while you travel through the Mists, you should check out Fire Mage Radio. Special thanks to Mority for hosting the site until Krasus can bring it back to us full time. Look for it to be available about Tuesday midnight Aussie time (that’s about Monday afternoon for us Yanks). I’ll have a full post on these guys in the future. The best in WoW Parody.
I don’t usually post outside of Sundays, but I came across something I found of interest today. If you don’t follow WoW Insider, you may have missed this.. Guild Ox has implemented an alt search through their site. What this means is that anyone can search just one of your character names, and it will produce a list of your alts too. It’s true that this might help guilds with their selection of new recruits, but honestly I see far too many con’s to this.
My toons are my toons, I choose who I put on my Real ID because I trust those people to know my alts. No one else needs to know that information. If someone were harassing me, would I want them to be able to do so no matter who I was on? Do I want to be judged because of what I may, or may not have done on my other toons?
Anyway /end rant.
According to WoW Insider, and Guild Ox, this feature can be disabled. Hit escape, go into interface, then display and then check “display only character achievements to others”.

With the release of MoP just weeks away, the blog will be focusing on goodies for the expansion until it’s release. Not long ago I released a spoiler video showing one of the places in Pandaria. Well this week I don’t have one new MoP wallpaper, I have THREE! See if you can find the locations when the expansion pack goes live.
You can get the Dreamscene application here
Install, and just right-click your WMV and choose “Set as Desktop Background”. Enjoy your new wallpapers!
