Put away those master balls guys, I’m only here to offer my insights and wisdom as our fearless leader shifts focus away from the game, to take care of his military obligations for awhile. I have so much I want to share with you about my experiences going through this game as a feral; however, the real question is…Why should you care what I have to say? Well allow me to make my first post all about myself, in hopes that some personal insight into my past will allow us to get on the same page on what I can bring to the blog, in Alaron’s absence.

A glimpse into the past:

I’ve been playing World of Warcraft since November 2006, This means that I did not get to play end game vanilla due to The Burning Crusade releasing late January of the following year. Like Alaron I was in the military, US Army Infantry. I was introduced to the game by friends of mine in the Army. We decided to make toons on Shattered Hand-US and push raid content even though we were stationed in Germany, eight hours ahead of server time. I was the definition of scrub at level 70 to be completely honest the only reason I made a druid in the first place is because everyone in the army called me bear due to my large, door-kicking down size, so when it came time to pick a toon a bear druid seemed what I was best suited for. We did fine for a bunch of late night raiders but I remember strolling through shat, seeing all the toons in full t6 (months ahead of anyone else on our server) and decided I wanted to be that guy.

I left the army after 4 years 8 months of service, once I was stateside and able to raid I was quickly accepted into the 2nd horde guild on the server as a bear tank. This was as blood wing of Ice Crown was released. We managed to land the server first Heroic Halion kill and server third Heroic Lich King. Once Cata was released things in my guild weren’t feeling the same and I moved up again to the server’s rank one guild <Downtime> as a feral cat. Currently we are 10/13 in tier 11 heroic content.

Hopes for the future:

What I am is an observer and a strategist. I spend a vast majority of time watching kill videos from higher guilds, doing my best to know how I can deal with these encounters for my class. I spent just as much time reading information from blizzard and other sources on how our class changes will effect the raid from a purely pve stand point. It is amazing how just knowing boss abilities, one can already come up with a class stratigy on how to handle a fight. I collect this information and put it into practice for raids, one thing I can pride myself on is even when things are going horribly and a wipe is sure to happen, using the numerous amount of feral abilities I’m usually one of the last to die.

What I am not is a theory crafter. Plugging away countless scenarios into a simulator is not what I’m about, but I do follow their work, and have the gift of being able to put their complex work into a simple, easy to read forum. I am also not a PvP’r, when I spoke about the time I spent researching this game from a PvE standpoint, I hope you realized how serious I was. While I find battlegrounds enjoyable, I’ve just never had the thirst for it like I’ve had for PvE. My goal as a guest blogger is threefold: first, to share not only my views on blizzard changes for the class and spec we all know and love; second, to offer insights on how to handle progression through raid content from a cat that’s dealt with it all before; finally, to help the community stay current on changes, as blizzard continues to nerf and buff the best class in the game.

Outro:

Well thank you for taking the time to get to know me, I look forward to learning more from all of you, as we spend more together. I think we should all take a moment to thank Alaron for keeping this site open, even if he won’t be around for awhile. I know I’m grateful for him allowing me to be able to write to all of you, this is my first time writing for an audience and hope you don’t mind watching me grow as a blogger as I hope to read about you all grow more skillfully in Cataclysm raid content.
