I am spending today explicitly slacking off (which right now means flapping five characters around the world to hit every damned Candy Bucket in existence, with occasional interludes as a zombie). So while I slack, here’s some interesting links from around the WoW web that you should check out:
Ihlos at Big Red Rhino has introduced a new advice column called Ask a Rhino. This first question is about Roar of Sacrifice. I love the idea of a rhino-written advice column and I look forward to seeing more like this from Ihlos and Ohta.
Speaking of pet feats, steady shot has started the Battle of the Pets, a no-holds-barred arena-style DPS competition between hunter pets. So far we’ve seen match-ups between cats, devilsaurs, wasps and moths, and I can’t wait for more!
Hydra at Almost Evil posted a great look at pets for hunter twinks. Switching pets has gotten somewhat less nail-biting for twinks since a new pet no longer needs experience in order to be fully functional. But the new pet system does have some interesting implications for twinks — for example, a level 19 pet has no talent points to spend, which puts a lot more focus on the family skill and underlying stats.
In addition to needing more names for the Pet-o-licious Namerator, Faeldray at Petoholics Anonymous has also been trying her hand at a Warp Stalker Soloing build. I’m fascinated to see what builds my favorite hunters are trying out these days!
And speaking of specs, Less QQ, More Pew Pew shares some of Drotara’s hunter specs. I’ve been getting e-mail from hunters looking for advice in this area, but it’s really not my thing … so I’ll send you to an actual expert.
And last but not least, I never plan to touch on politics here. But you really should check out Big Bear Butt’s recent post about his devilsaur …
