I’ve started a monthly column over at Who Needs Shields, on the basics for Death Knights. It’s called Suffer Well, and the first installment can be found here.

Over the recent weeks, the discussions going around on the LFD tool, and of over-geared players kicking or leaving in disgust their less well-geared counterparts has given me much to chew over in my mind.  Then, a couple of weeks ago, Brigwyn and Daewyn on the Hunting Lodge Podcast threw out the idea of having a selection a “Badge Run” on the tool.  I responded with an e-mail, stating that if such a button existed, there ought to be an auto-shard, with no gear loot being given for that particular run.  Brig’s initial comment was “Harsh”, but I do believe that he gave the idea some thought.

More Favorite Blogs

News I discovered only the other day – one of my favorite blogs is back from the dead, and my good friend finally got off his butt and launched his.

Diaries of a Marksman Hunter, Nassira’s great hunter blog, has returned.  For hunters of all stripes, but in particular those of us with a MM color, should visit her site on a regular basis.  Good to have you back, Nass!

And, those 3 of you reading this, may well be familiar with Torval, my trusty tree friend and healer.  Well, he also has a bearish side, and will be blogging on Who Needs Shields.  Make sure to bug him for more posts – after all, he has nothing better to do!  (JK bud)
