For the last in game holiday, The Physician's Log set up a fun little event for us bloggers. Taking a page from her book, I've got an idea for the current holiday, the Lunar Festival. I probably wouldn't have thought of this without her setting that up, so send her some cookies =)

One of the big parts of this holiday in-game has characters traveling the world to find various elders and pay them a little respect. In return, they pass on a few words that might be wisdom, and you continue on your way. Similarly, we bloggers have the opportunity on a regular basis to share a bit of advice, but it's often directed toward those that already have some experience in our area.

So for this Lunar Festival, I have a bit of a challenge for you: Write something directed not at those that have months or years of experience, but for those that are just getting started.

You're the Elder. Pretend you're smart for a few days =P



Who can join in?

Anyone that has a Warcraft blog =) And hey, maybe you'll even end up with a few more followers by the end of this shindig!

When is this happening?
Starting right now. You've got almost 2 weeks to write something up and get it published, but I do ask that you have sent me the link to your post by noon CST on March 7th. I'm going to try and have the big post of links to everyone that participated up by that evening.

What exactly do I do?
Post 10 tips for those level 10 mages that are just now trying to figure out what that strength wand does. Write a several page essay on how beginning tanks can kick butt in a dungeon. Pass on a few sentences of advice for someone that's just now getting started in the blogging community. Anything and everything can be covered! Length and content is up to you, just try to direct it at someone who's a newbie.

Okay, it's written. Now what?
Post it! =)
Somewhere in your post, please include a link back to either my blog post or this Blog Azeroth topic so that anyone else that's interested can find out more. Once your post is up, send me a link as a comment here or at my blog, or as a DM on Twitter.


Unlike The Physician's Log, I'm not talented enough to offer shiny prizes, but you will get your name and blog linked for others to find it =) Free publicity's always good, right?

Questions? Comments? Do I need to explain anything more?

Awesome idea! The things I would enter I've already posted though, my Blogging 101 page, hunter guides, my beginner's guide to huntering dungeons.

I like this! I was just talking to someone yesterday about what tips I'd give someone who started playing now and remembering my noob days... I'll try to write something before this is over :)

At first, I thought, "But I've just posted something that would work for this! What else could I post?"

Then I remembered the hunter in my group that wanted to buy my heirloom bow and remembered there are ALWAYS things to go over for beginners...

I'll start thinking about a topic!

From what I understand, it's a bit like a shared topic but themed for the season?

It's a good idea. I write a most of my posts in advice format, but I'm sure I could come up with something extra special for this :).

Hmm a paladin guide type post or a "God I wish I knew that then..." type post of things I learned the long and hard way.

I just made a post today I think I will work on this this weekend! Need time to figure out what to do anyways :)

I started one, and it turned into this...

http://www.restokin.com/2010/02/moonkin ... 80-raider/

I already have a whole leveling guide, so this is the earliest I could go that I hadn't already posted.

I already write a bunch of my stuff aimed at the newish but competitive raider.

Does a Sindragosa strat count? :P (writing that hurt my brain, and I had to resort to offsite references for diagrams. I am shamed!)

DW I will come up with something else more appropriate soon, I hope.

Soo tired the past few days, hence the quiet from me on the blogging front. Though I have spent a tiny bit of time ingame and watched a pile of anime so :D

However, I've written the opening paragraph of my planned post for this event and I will get it up this week.. at some point. Sorry guys bear with me!

I would like to retract my last submission in fave of a more general one: Tips for Leveling Any Class.

Sorry for the double-link-post-failure. I seem to be doing that a lot lately.
