The Classifieds: Weekly review and exploring the world


Jesse Cox has a lot of fans. Jesse's a great guy and incredibly talented; we've featured his work more than a few times around here. Jesse has a new series out in which he does a Weekly Review of the week's news. It's a pretty fun summary and is totally worth checking out.

In a similar vein, the Glitch Hunters over on YouTube have been putting together a great series featuring the landscape -- and bugs -- of Azeroth. Using methods completely available to every player of WoW, they are constantly exploring even the unintended landscapes. Balista tipped us off to these videos, saying, "Like imagine if Oxhorn was a documentary filmmaker."

Hopelessly Lost of Khaz Modan (US-A) I was in an awesome PUG the other day, and not awesome for the typical reasons. We lost our tank and healer and in came the crew from <Hopelessly Lost>. They were all patient and calm as myself and another rogue learned the fights. It was my first time in, on heroic no less, but everyone held it together. Those folks wanted so badly for us to make it through, and eventually, we did! -- Metrocake

Nhala of Cenarion Circle (US-A) She is the tank responsible for the single best experience I've had in a Cataclysm LFD heroic group. She apologized a few minutes into the run after realizing she hadn't said hello, and that friendly atmosphere continued throughout the dungeon. We didn't wipe once, though the poor paladin learning to DPS died on most boss fights -- which was quite a few, as Nhala led us through every boss in heroic Halls of Origination for rep. On top of all that, she dropped feasts for us throughout the dungeon and proved herself one of the most competant DK tanks I've ever met. Nhala is someone I can be proud to say I share a server with! -- Atinae, Cenarion Circle (US-A)

Blood tells <Blood of Heroes> of Shadowsong (US-A) is a 10-man raiding guild accepting apps for a few solid players to add to our roster. Our guild policy is "have fun, don't be a @!#@ and make the game more fun for others."

Comforts of gnome <Gnomeland Security> is a family-oriented, social guild that has a small group of players who are interested in progression raiding. We pride ourselves on providing a comfortable, stress-free casual environment, where families can game without the stress of a scheduled raiding guild.
