Some of my favorite recent posts.
Know Your Lore: Hakkar the Soulflayer
“Today we’re going to look at Hakkar the Soulflayer, not to be confused with Hakkar the Houndmaster which apparently came first in the lore, but I don’t really care which of them came first because the Blood God (that one’s the Soulflayer) is way cooler. What the Soulflayer actually is is largely a mystery. He’s a god, certainly, but Azeroth has many flavors of gods and demigods. He is probably just a Loa god, but our buddy Brann Bronzebeard seems to think he’s more than that. Specifically, Hakkar might be the son of an Old God.”
All the World’s a Stage: Pros and cons of total-immersion roleplay
“There are degrees to roleplaying. Some people like it “light,” so that it never gets too intense, you never have to actually “work” to make your character profound or lore-worthy, and it’s generally just a fun way to pass some time. Others like it “heavy;” they view their characters as works of art, taking special care to make their characters believable and interesting, and sometimes planning special roleplaying events for their guild to enjoy. Some even try to do everything in-character, from repairing armor to marking out targets with raid symbols.”
Ask a Lore Nerd: The Evil-o-Meter
“Welcome to Ask a Lore Nerd, the column that answers your questions about the story and lore of the Warcraft universe. Click the Comments link below, ask your question, and blogger/columnist Alex Ziebart will answer you in a future installment!”
Breakfast Topic: Finding motivation to level or grind
“Arrowd of the US Cairne server has a question: How do you keep leveling without getting bored, abandoning a character, or rerolling? She says that she’s had around 14 characters, and she’s never managed to stick with one past about level 45. She always gets bored, and she wonders if there is a way to avoid it.”

Early Thursday morning, in response to Breakfast Topic: Guild hosting, I posted a link to our site. The site got a wonderful response and I thank everyone that posted.
“Site looks great.”
“Oh, very nice, added to my favorites to steal when I need a new site ;-)”
“That page is really, really nice.”
“Wow. That link have given me new faith in what a guild website is capable of looking like.”

We have a new tabard design, please pick one up and wear it proudly. If you can’t afford it contact a higher level player and they should be able to help. If you don’t care for it or have suggestions please contact me.
I went with a neutral, black and white design that tavern workers and adventurers can both wear.
Should go well with everyones armor and characters.

Thought I would share some of my favorite posts this week from WoW Insider.
Illusionary Tactics: Dartol’s Rod of Transformation
“This time, I’ll be looking at Dartol’s Rod of Transformation, a perennial favorite of my guild. I’ve written about this item before, but it’s been a while, and it’s perfect for this column, so I’m giving it some more air time.”
Tanking for beginners
“Maybe you’ve heard that there’s a tank shortage and you’ve rerolled to help your buddies out. Maybe you just like the idea of one of the tanking classes and you’re interested in being as valuable for groups as you can be (and in the case of two of them you don’t like healing). Maybe you enjoy being in the forefront of things. For whatever reason, you’ve decided you want to tank.”
Shifting Perspectives: Share your delight in Tree of Life!
“Since this column has been dominated by news of the Ferlol kind lately, I thought this week would be a good time to bring some true leafy fun into the mix.”
The Light and How to Swing It: Holy paladin gear enchants, part 2
“In my last Light and How to Swing It, I covered some good enchants for the upper part of an endgame healing paladin — the head, shoulders, cloak, chest and bracers. Now it’s time to head below the belt (har) and take care of hand, ring, leg, foot, weapon and shield enhancements. Okay, hands and rings aren’t technically below the blt, but I ran out of room for them last time.”
New Players’ Guide: Your life as a Hunter.
“As a Hunter, your primary role will be to provide ranged damage-per-second and crowd control with your traps. Actually, I lied, your primary role will be spent convincing everyone you group with you’re not one of those brainless morons that seem to end up playing Hunters.”

We’ve created two new in game chat channels for everyone to join. For roleplaying we have WayfarersRP and for out of character we have WayfarersOOC. Hope to see you there.
