I’ts been a long time now since I’ve done something different. It’s been just text, text, text for months.
No, Sidhe Devils Gone Wild doesn’t count. And no, the podcast is not dead, it’s just amazingly difficult to get four bloggers all in one place, at one time. If we’re the WoW version of the Beatles, Ratshag is John Lennon, and it’s harder than heck to get his butt in the studio. No, I won’t speculate as to who else is which Beatle… but I call dibs on Ringo. Zug zug, baby.
Hopefully, the stars align and we’ll be able to do an all Pally episode next Tuesday.
But Sidhe Devils Gone Wild is not a Bear project, it’s a fun multi-blogger gabfest.
This blog be da Bear’s soapbox, and I like playing with doing different stuff periodically.
I think there’s no question that when I first started blogging, I was excited. I felt like a pioneer, and I was always playing with different stuff that seemed lots of fun. Raid Songs of the Week, boss movies, parody songs I’ll never live down, whatever seemed like fun. Blogging felt like a new, awesome dynamic thing to be a part of. And the community! Just amazing, what great folks!
But I’ve been doing this for a long time now, and damn it feels like I keep falling in a rut.
“Oh, I should write a guide on that. But work is so involved right now, and Alex has time off and we should do something, and etc etc. I’ll do that next time, let’s write something brief for now.”
What I’d like to do, to have some fun and break out of this rut, is do a few super-short narrated movies. And I’d like suggestions on what you’d like to see me do ’em on.
I was thinking, for example, that I could do a 3 to 5 minute movie on using Omen to test out threat generation rotations while killing mobs like Fel Reavers, just to actually expain the process and show what to look for.
Another movie I had thought I could do was just a short movie on pulling and Bear tanking multiple mobs that are tough solo, and the timely use of a Bear’s “Oh shit” buttons.
But you folks that read the blog would know best what you think you’d like to see, so please, give me your suggestions. Want to see me tank a specific encounter in a team or solo? Let me know. Want to see something, anything else? Just say so.
I reserve the right to not do it, of course. If you ask to see me tank Yogg, I can assure you, it ain’t happening unless and until Sidhe Devils actually do Ulduar and get there. So, I’ll see ya in a year or so.
And of course, by all means, let me know if this is even something you’d enjoy. If you think it’s a waste of time, best to let me know before I spend potential gaming time doing them.
