Suggested Reading: December 17, 2011
It’s been a while since I’ve had time to put together a suggested reading post, and I’ve also been slacking on them somewhat because it’s so easy to just pop a link into Twitter when I’ve read something I think the rest of you would enjoy. Unfortunately, this means that some readers/bloggers who haven’t made it to Twitter yet are missing out. So here is a double-dose of great posts from around the blogosphere for you to catch up on in between your weekend chores:
- The Children of Wrath has a fascinating assessment of Thrall’s story line in Cata, how it falls short, and why it is unlikely to appeal to Alliance players in “The Problem With Thrall.”
- Tikari’s Tricks of the Trade explores the lingering implications of the use of homophobic speech at Blizzcon and its effects on the WoW community in “All in Good Fun?“
- Blame Squelchy, whose author has returned from sabbatical, provides a two part guide to the Hiram Creed questline that awards rogues their first set of daggers on the way to the legendary in “Slouching Toward Gilneas” and “How to Stab Your Dragon.”
- Aldous, everyone’s favorite Boozekin, presents the classiest guide you’ll ever find to defeating the Dragon Soul bosses using Raid Finder.
- Warchief Garrosh Hellscream had a run-in with Garona and Johnny Awesome this week. Fortunately, a transcript of the conversation was written and preserved for us lowly plebeians to see how the upper echelon conduct themselves.
- Finally, Orcish Army Knife features the continuing story of the legendary Fabyoulore, a mysterious figure (read: stalker) who has finally made contact with Rhades’ paladin Fabulor. See this week’s continuation of the story after you’ve read the introduction.
