The Daily Quest: Just a little bit random

WoW Insider's on a Daily Quest to bring you interesting, informative, and entertaining
WoW-related links from around the blogosphere.

I don't know about you, but the last thing I would expect upon entering a food court is guerrilla opera. The Dungeon Finder and Raid Finder are much the same way -- you never know what you're going to get. Sometimes, it's a group of smooth professionals who work together like clockwork even though they've never met before, and sometimes ... well, sometimes you really wish you'd never clicked the button.

Today, we've got a few posts from around the blogosphere regarding these tools of randomness.

The Daily Quest: Winter Veil gifts

WoW Insider's on a Daily Quest to bring you interesting, informative, and entertaining
WoW-related links from around the blogosphere.

Man, I love Winter Veil. It's the best time to stock up on snowballs to throw at unsuspecting players. I always wondered about the physics of snowballs -- you can keep them indefinitely. You can stick them in the bank for a rainy day. You'd think that would soak all the precious loot you've got stashed, but nope!

This Sunday, players can nab Winter Veil gifts from under the tree, but how about I share a few posts from around the blogosphere for some fun holiday reading? It's my Winter Veil gift to you -- no snowballs included, I promise.

The Daily Quest: Achieving enlightenment

WoW Insider's on a Daily Quest to bring you interesting, informative, and entertaining
WoW-related links from around the blogosphere.

Man, when achievements first came out, I was absolutely hooked on the things. They arrived just before Wrath officially launched, so those last few days of The Burning Crusade were spent completing as many of them as I possibly could. These days, the fervor has died down quite a bit, and most achievements I have left are of the PvP variety -- something I'm not too keen on doing.

Today we're got a few interesting posts from around the blogosphere, including one insightful look at achievements, among other things.

The Daily Quest: Adventures in raiding

WoW Insider's on a Daily Quest to bring you interesting, informative, and entertaining
WoW-related links from around the blogosphere.

Nostalgia time! This old song by Myndflame, featured at the end of Illegal Danish: Super Snacks, brings back all kinds of memories -- horrifying memories of eternal frustration with having to summon roughly 34 people to Molten Core because they were too lazy to get there on their own. Really, guys? Really? You know the locks have to burn a shard for each of your lazy butts, right?

Speaking of raiding, let's take a peek at some posts from around the blogosphere on that topic, shall we?

WoW-related links from around the blogosphere.

I hope you pay attention to the video above; there may be a vocab test next Wednesday. Now that we've learned a little Norwegian, why don't we we learn some other useful stuff? Like things about Warcraft. How about we take a look at some posts from around the blogosphere and maybe learn a few things while we're at it?

The Daily Quest: He says he's very sad

WoW Insider's on a Daily Quest to bring you interesting, informative, and entertaining
WoW-related links from around the blogosphere.

The thing to remember when you're watching Freakazoid is that trying to make sense out of the nonsensical is an exercise in futility. The thing to remember with the new Raid Finder is that expecting organization and efficiency is also an exercise in futility. Embrace the nonsense and you'll love Freakazoid; embrace the chaos and you'll love the Raid Finder.

Today, we've got a few more posts from around the blogosphere discussing the joys of the Raid Finder feature.

WoW-related links from around the blogosphere.

So have you tried out the Raid Finder? Or maybe just the raid itself? Did you get any good stuff? Or heck, have you found your perfect transmogrification set yet? Patch 4.3 has been nothing but a ball of fun so far as far as I'm concerned, and everyone else seems to be having a good time too -- but that doesn't mean there's nothing to talk about, of course. Check out these posts from around the blogosphere for some frank 4.3 discussion.

The Daily Quest: Faire and fairness

WoW Insider's on a Daily Quest to bring you interesting, informative, and entertaining
WoW-related links from around the blogosphere.

Darkmoon Faire is pretty cool, but the music on the island is absolutely amazing. Though some are grumbling about the length of time it's going to take to grind out tickets, one thing's for certain -- this isn't going to be content that you can blow through and subsequently get tired of in two weeks' time.

On the other end of the spectrum, the blogosphere's been abuzz with chatter about Raid Finder exploits and those who've taken advantage. Today, we've got a few posts that address both!

The Daily Quest: Dragon Soul-searching

WoW Insider's on a Daily Quest to bring you interesting, informative, and entertaining
WoW-related links from around the blogosphere.

One week into patch 4.3, and my raid guild is already 7/8 in normal mode 25-man content. Keep in mind, we aren't really one of those hardcore progression guilds; you could probably get away with calling us semi-hardcore. Three nights a week of raiding isn't a lot in the grand scheme of things. It seems a bit odd that we're so far through the raid already, but at the same time, it's normal mode content.

Speaking of Dragon Soul, today we've got a collection of posts from around the blogosphere discussing the latest raid to hit the world of Warcraft.

The Daily Quest: A bit of intellectual discussion

WoW Insider's on a Daily Quest to bring you interesting, informative, and entertaining
WoW-related links from around the blogosphere.

Let's take a break from all the patch 4.3 commentary. Well ... sort of. Today I've got three very different sort of posts from around the blogosphere that talk about an assortment of subjects. While two discuss 4.3 in a roundabout kind of way, the third is a long look into the nature of corruption and the various corruption-themed story arcs in WoW. All three are pretty insightful, that's for certain!

The Queue: Shades.app

Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Mike Sacco will be your host today.

It's late (early?) and I'm tired, so I'm just using Fox's WRUP header for today's Queue header. Deal with it.

jaymccowan13 asked:

On top of Wyrmrest Temple, why is Kalecgos the only one without a title in his name?

Normally, one gets a title from doing something of note, and Kalecgos hasn't done much yet as Aspect of Magic. Nor will he apparently have the opportunity to! Womp, womp.

WoW-related links from around the blogosphere.

One of the highlights of the new 5-man heroics was hearing Illidan affirm the fact that yes, I was prepared. It was a nice little wink back to the Burning Crusade trailer, and it made a heroic that was already wildly entertaining even more fun.
