I had been toying with signing up for blog azeroth which is turning out to be quite the community of wow bloggers.
Thankfull their latest shared topic set me straight and reminded me of the fact that I had better blog about what I feel like rather than dealing with that strange feeling of having to come up with material for a blog post to a topic that I didn't come up with. Or at least feeling like I have to compe up with something...
It's not that I mind borrowing inspiration from other blogs (I have in the past and I will in the future) but how creative can you possibly get with a shared topic called: "Why do I WoW?" Should I actually feel obligated to fill out the shared topic every time someone comes up with a new one? Do other bloggers?
How much fun is it for the reader to see hundreds of blog posts popping up like mushrooms with exactly the same topic? Are we sure people enjoy these shared topics?
It almost feels like Blog azeroth has either run out of creative ideas or they're using the rolodex of standard topics applicable to any MMORPG.
Nothing against blog azeroth of course, the initiative is quite good and it's nice to have new sources of inspiration and I am glad people have a good place to come together to see whose who but I can practically see the next shared topic being: "What is your favorite non-combat pet and why?".
But before I wander off into the land of mindless ranting a little heads up that the beta patch info is available for Wrath right here
As usual the friendly reminder to not take anything in there too serious since things have a tendency to change drastically from an initial Beta to the actual go-live.
I am sure there's plenty of speculation going on already all over the WoW community if you're looking to join the bandwagon of commentators but I have a feeling we'll have plenty of time to blog about every aspect of it before wrath hits the shelves.
I for one will delay commenting on any kind of class changes listed in the beta notes until I have the expansion installed on my PC and have to physically deal with the changes.
