Old Gods, Dual Death Knights, and Big Hopes

And last but not least – some excellent posts from the weekend on a wide range of topics – from Old God omnipresence to a new, bold hope for us WoW players…

  • Garrosh Hellscream knows. He knows about Mankrik’s wife, he knows why elevators kill you, and he knows why there are no ducks in Azeroth. It’s all the Old Gods’ fault“Yeah, well, the magic controlling those elevator platforms was corrupted…so for all intents and purposes, all elevators are minions of the Old Gods. Specifically, one of the Old Gods – I believe his name is Goin’down’ethar. How much you want to bet that when we finally discover where he’s hidden, there won’t be any stairs?”
  • Saxsy writes a really interesting column on roleplaying Death Knights beyond the usual dark-and-solitary cliches“What I was thinking of today is how my own RP with Traxy has evolved to reflect the duality of her personality. The way she is changing, and the way she is not “death knighty” is reflective of her former personality, the one she had when she was alive, emerging.”
  • Syl looks at the upcoming MMO Wildstar, and wonders if it could be the genuine successor to WoW“Still, my overall impression of Wildstar remains; few innovations aside, it looks the way WoW should be looking today and feels like the next evolutionary step for players who are still attached to Blizzard’s franchise and overall concept.”
  • And Hunter shares some hard-earned lessons from his time as a guild officer and leader – which didn’t exactly go flawlessly“If you try to reason with the drama, if you try to calm it, or leave the situation unresolved, it will come back to haunt you. These people sew dissension in the ranks, they always do. They always leave after much effort is made for their benefit and take others with them.”
