Reader WoWspace of the Week: Ten

By popular demand, we're returning one of the reader favorite columns. For as many different World of Warcraft players as there are out there, there are equally as many different WoWspaces for people to game in. Each week, we'll bring you a WoWspace sent in by one of our readers and let them tell you all about it. Would you like to share your own personal space? Just drop some pictures and your description to us here at readerwowspace AT!

This week we have a WoWspace that includes not just our regular reader, Ten, but also Ten's husband's WoWspace so that they can kind of game "face to face" together. Curious? Read on for all the info, courtesy of Ten, aka Laelvalin / Vijanwi!

My workspace is truly a bubble of space in itself. I sit directly across my husband's computer desk, and together, our computer 'island' (flooded with light from the huge windows, hiss!) takes up a third of the living room. Which I incidentally think is just the right amount.

I've been playing WoW since 2005 and have severe altitis, but my two mains (yes, two) are my Warlock Laelvalin and my Warrior Vijanwi. Prot all the way from level 1 on. Altitis has a side effect of masochism, I guess. I raid a little and level alts a lot, but I'm really in the game for the RP with my awesome guildies. My husband tried to get into the game as well, but he just can't find much fun in it. A shame, since our computer space is so optimal for beating each other up on screen.

Reader WoWspace of the Week: Erikmathew

This week for our "Almost time for the American Food, Family, and Football Day" edition, we're bringing a WoWspace to you that keeps the family in mind. It doesn't just house Erikmathew, L64 Undead Rogue of <Sabotage> from the Sargeras server; it's the space where he and his kids geek out together. Here's the 411 on this space from Erikmathew (he named his Rogue for his son) himself:

OK, here is a picture of my down to earth WoWspace. Included in the picture is -- first and foremost -- my assistant copilot Meg (4) who is someday sure to be a vital part of the WoW community. Also pictured is my 39 gallon aquarium, which is very calming after a long night of raiding. From there, you'll notice my logitech X230 speakers, 19" Dell LCD screen, Logitech Elite Keyboard LE, and Logitech Marble Mouse.

Reader WoWspace of the week: Chedder

This week's Reader WoWspace comes to us courtesy of Chedder, L70 Troll Hunter of <Illusion> on Deathwing. We have to give him props -- the desk is a heck of a lot cleaner than ours generally are. (Or perhaps have ever been) But it's not that clean desk fetish that people accuse us of that made us pull this one out. No, we pulled this one out to share with you because this is a space that is all about Warcraft -- and we're suckers for the Warcraft art.

What art, you say? Click on the handy break below and you'll see what we mean...

Reader WoWspace of the Week: 2.3 WoWspaces!

No, this week I'm not featuring WoWspaces that have lots of good information or reaction on the upcoming patch. Considering we're featuring oodles of 2.3 news lately, I thought it would be fun to show off 2.3 WoWspaces. (I'll let you figure out which one is the .3 of a WoWspace) These are some of the generally off-the-beaten-desk variety pictures that we get. That said, on with the show!

The first WoWspace this week (pictured above) features one thing we haven't seen featured in a WoWspace until this week -- feet! This WoWspace belongs to Bork. He writes:

While playing WoW on a TV is not a new idea, It did take me quite a while to get it to the point where I wasn't leaning over my coffee table the whole time -- at least, not without a big ugly book for a mouse pad. I had to scale up the interface in the config so I could actually read the tiny text in the interface. (the GUI stops you at one) Bartender 3 also helped since scaling up the interface made the bars render off the side of the screen.

I have my keyboard all taped up to a product from I tried many things but this was the lightest and easiest. I also couldn't stand gaming with the wireless products out there so I have a standard wired keyboard and mouse (lots more blue tape holding it down to the carpet).

Anyway, just wanted to share in case someone else is trying to get this to work in their living room. I actually gave up and moved everything into my bedroom twice because of a sore back, but now it works well.

For those who are interested in the other non-traditional WoWspaces for this week, click on the link below and let's continue on!
