Blogroll Spotlight: Lightning Overload

by Jon on March 13th, 2008

Last week when I updated our blogroll I had originally intended to do a quick blurb on each of the new additions. Problem is that my time was limited and I just didn’t have the opportunity to give each website the attention it deserves.

The same thing goes for the majority of my posts. You’ve probably noticed that it’s been pretty dead around here and it’s due to a lack of time available (with raiding and guild leading and grinding for repair bills =P) to dedicate to the bigger posts. As a result I’ve decide to attempt to release little morsels during the week and hopefully work on something a little more meaty over the weekends.

The first of these bite-sized offerings will be the Blogroll Spotlight. I know it’s a bit of a cliche but something is better than nothing. I plan on probably offering an Featured Addon post as well. If anyone has any suggestions let me know. So with that out of the way, lets get to it.

In terms of blogger representation, my personal observation is that there is a lack of Shaman-love out there. This could be attributed to the fact that prior to TBC, shamans were horde only and so represented a lower number of overall players. Or maybe it’s a personality issue. Is a shamanesque player less likely to blog versus a druid or a hunter (both very high in terms of blogger representation)? Maybe I’m just talking out of my ass but I think it would be interesting to compile some WoW blogger stats to see where the populace stands.

Ligtning Overload: 4-man orc team

Well Boylston over at Lightning Overload makes up for any lack of Shamans elsewhere by blogging about his 4-man elemental shaman team. Yes he’s a multi-boxer. And from the looks of it, a damn good one. He just hit 70 with his 4-man orc army (/congrats) and has started to jump into arenas to start shocking faces.

For those of you that are wondering about the legality of multi-boxing, Belfaire posted up a solid explanation of Blizzard’s stance over on the official forums here.

  1. A mod I was introduced to that I couldn’t live without until I hit 70 is Quest Helper. Sometimes annoying, but always helpful. It helps speed up leveling by about 300%. Love it!

  2. Thanks for the recognition!! I’ll be adding a few updates on the orcs now that the newness of being 70-70-70-70 is over and the long PvP gear grind begins.

    Here’s 4xNS+EM+CL just for you!
