Having read Beruthiel's response and now Kurn's response to the Circle of Healing Questionnaire for this year/expansion, I wanted to join in the fun. So here I go!

Next Up, Festival Fallow

So there it is. Another festival come and gone. Did you get everything you wanted? Did you do everything you wanted? Did you even log in? The 2011 Midsummer Festival has come and gone and while I did a lot, there was a LOT more I wanted to do but did not get to do. cry

Not only was there a festival happening, there was also a new patch that dropped on the last week of the festival so getting things done that you wanted to might not have been possible if you or your guild had "more important" things to do playing "tree huggin hippies". wink

Now don't get me wrong. I have no issues with people that "luv the trees and all the critters that live in da forest" (hello, Mylune! biggrin ) but the new Hyjal dailies are a bit tiresome since you have to do so much of the same thing every week, every day. That though, is another post and I am here to talk about the Midsummer Festival.

Patch 4.3 - Return of the Key Ring

So today was the launch of patch 4.2 and the demise of the key ring, your bag space and a failed attempt at a peace offering. If you did not already about it, here is the original blue post. Well we now have the results of removing the keyring. As a blacksmither and long time player, this change has been a complete disaster. Here is how I see it.

If you keep tabs on WoW news, I'm sure you have heard by now that soon™ you will be able to group with your friends on RealID and queue for dungeons. Oh ya, this new feature will be a premium service. Given that this feature is not available on "live" yet, it's too soon to say how great or not it is. That said, the community can offer how it fits in with their play style. So here is how I see it.

YAWoWB now enchanted with WoWhead

Ever since I saw a site with WoWhead powered tooltips, I said to myself, "Self. That is just plain right.". So as of right now, all postings here on this blog are now "enchanted" with WoWhead. It's like having a stat enchant of over 9000.

Here is a link to my favourite shield with the WoWhead tooltip, Bulwark of Azzinoth

If you want to do the same to your site, go to the WoWhead tooltip page to learn how.

UPDATE : Here's a "pro tip". If your site uses templates/skins/parts , place the script tag in your "header file" so the code is loaded on each page.
