Poll: What zone has the best music?

map of azeroth
I'm going to open this one with a personal story. In 2009 at a Blizzcon party, I had the good fortune to be introduced to Russell Brower, and I promptly went all starry-eyed and gushed about how much I loved WoW's music. His face lit up and he said, "Oh you are just the best thing!" and kissed my hand. Then asked me what my favorite was. My answer was immediate, and without hesitation: Black Temple.

Now, let's fast-forward to today, in 2013, almost four years later. Has my answer changed? Maybe. Black Temple is still definitely up there, but I'm not sure it's the out-and-away winner anymore. With Cataclysm many of the zones got updated music, so areas I wasn't super enthused about before suddenly became much more compelling. In the end, the five I've come up with are Grizzly Hills (a perennial favorite), Black Temple (still love it), Ashenvale ("Nightsong" alone makes this nomination), Karazhan (haunted mansion!), and Kun-Lai Summit (mostly for "Way of the Monk," which plays upon entry into the Temple of the White Tiger). Vote on your favorite in the poll, but don't think this is the definitive list. I'm sure there are plenty of zones I've overlooked, so tell us what I've missed in the comments.

Poll: Do you use the in-game Guild Finder?

Poll Do you use the ingame LFGuild

Joining a guild has always been a core aspect of World of Warcraft. How to choose the right style of guild can be an especially large hurdle to overcome for new players, but it's something we learn along the way. Players currently have a few resources at their disposal, whether it be the Blizzard Guild Recruitment forums, GuildOx, WoWProgress, or other tools. But there's an oft-forgotten in-game tool that was released back in patch 4.1. What about the in-game Guild Finder?

The options are a bit limited, and the listings depend on the effort put in by guild masters. Let's just say it's a neglected feature on a few fronts. I've used the Guild Finder before, when searching for a casual leveling guild on a new server. Outside of that, I stick to other tools when recruiting or looking for a new guild.

What about you -- do you ever use the in-game Guild Finder? What's your preferred resource for guild recruitment and discovery?

Choose My Adventure: Welcome our new adventurers!

Foxlight the Shirtless Pally
Choose the adventures of the WoW Insider staff or join in with It came from the Blog on Zangarmarsh (US-PVE-H).

Joining Roblinator for future adventures in these pages will be Josh Myers, Joe Perez and Fox Van Allen. Yes, it's the return of Foxlight, the shirtless pally. Please keep the swooning to a minimum. Josh and Joe will be having you choose everything about their characters, but Foxlight just needs to know how and where to adventure. Roblinator will continue her shamanating ways, with your help and direction.

We'll be discontinuing the stream, but not the fun! We will be posting the schedules for each adventurer so that you can join them on their travels, and of course we will have polls and stories. Join us after the break to vote on what you'd like for our new adventurers.

Choose My Adventure Live: Goblin shaman wins by a nose

Choose the adventures of Robin Torres as Roblinator the goblin shamanator or join in with <It came from the Blog> on Zangarmarsh (US-PvE-H).

You've chosen to continue the live adventures of Roblinator, the goblin shamanator. I'm rather surprised, actually, because I thought a more advanced player would be chosen. I've never taken a shaman past level 11, so I'm going to need your help. Please join me on the stream above, the chat room after the break and/or in game on Zangarmarsh. Polls for Roblinator's future are after the break, as well.

Choose My Adventure: Polls for next Cataclysm beta stream


Choose the adventures of the WoW.com staff as we level our characters in <It came from the Blog> on Zangarmarsh (US-PvE-H).

Note: Above is the video of the live stream that occurred Wednesday night. It is pretty much one big Cataclysm beta spoiler video. You have been warned.

Well, Robinka the dwarf shamanka turned out to be a complete yawn. I take full responsibility for not being able to fake enthusiasm for a quest area that is more concerned about food collection than lore. Peenk the gnome priestess was nothing but fun, however. This week I will be polling for next Wednesday's stream. More details on that after the break.

Adventurers who play when they can
  • Fox Van Allen as Foxlight, the level 25 blood elf paladin
  • Lisa Poisso as Prupher, the level 11 tauren druid
  • Michael Sacco as Shockbroker, the goblin shaman
  • Christian Belt, as Selfloathius, the level 16 blood elf warlock
  • Matthew Rossi as Andrenorton, the level 17 troll mage
  • Michael Gray as Grayfields, the level 17 tauren hunter
  • Gregg Reece as Sandwichdoc, the level 16 troll shaman
If you want to see more of our adventurers, please write them a letter in the comments and I will make sure the letters get to them.

Turn the page for the polls.

Choose My Adventure: The O-Team


Choose the adventures of the WoW.com staff as we level our characters in <It came from the Blog> on Zangarmarsh (US-PvE-H).

Note: The above is not a live stream. It is the video of Wednesday's live Cataclysm beta stream, which contains spoilers.

If you want to know what the O-Team is, you have to go a little over an hour into the stream to see. Or you can wait until Wednesday's story post, when I'm sure Robinemia will have something to say. At least one of the viewers in the chat channel came up with the name. I am just appropriating it.

Adventurers who play when they can
  • Fox Van Allen as Foxlight, the level 22 blood elf paladin
  • Lisa Poisso as Prupher the level 10 tauren druid
  • Michael Sacco as Shockbroker, the goblin shaman
  • Christian Belt, as Selfloathius, the level 16 blood elf warlock
  • Elizabeth Harper as Faience, the level 24 troll shaman
  • Matthew Rossi as Andrenorton, the level 17 troll mage
  • Michael Gray as Grayfields, the level 17 tauren hunter

Choose the adventures of the WoW.com staff as we level our characters in <It came from the Blog> on Zangarmarsh (US-PvE-H).

Update: I will be streaming again tonight at midnight EDT (9 p.m. PDT).

I had so much fun streaming on Wednesday night that it's going to be hard playing without streaming. It's addicting having tons of friends to chat with/at while I play.

  • Michael Sacco as Shockbroker, the goblin shaman; Christian Belt, as Selfloathius, the level 16 blood elf warlock; Elizabeth Harper as Faience, the level 24 troll shaman; Matthew Rossi as Andrenorton, the level 17 troll mage; Michael Gray as Grayfields, the level 17 tauren hunter; Lisa Poisso as Prupher, the level 10 proofreading tauren druid; and Gregg Reece as Sandwichdoc, the level 16 troll shaman, will be making appearances as they can.

Choose My Adventure: Polls and an announcement

Choose the adventures of the WoW.com staff as we level our characters in <It came from the Blog> on Zangarmarsh (US-PvE-H).

I wonder if he sings? Oh wait, that's Captain Hammer.

We interrupt this program to bring you a special announcement: Adammentat and his leveling partner Airaden are nearing level 60 and want to start 40-man raiding in a couple of weeks. Adam is thinking the progression will be: MC, ZG, BWL, AQ20, AQ40. If you are interested, get your level 60+ <It came from the Blog> character ready. Level 60 raids in a few weeks!

We now return you to your program, already in progress.
  • Fox Van Allen as Foxlight, the level 22 blood elf paladin: Friday, 8 p.m. EDT

At some point this weekend, I will be streaming my Choose My Adventure makeup session, beta permitting. You'll know when as soon as I do. Also, as soon as we can make female worgen and if the worgen starting area is functional at the same time, we'll put up more Alliance beta options. In the meantime, this week's polls are after the break.
