Due to Majik attending Digital Overload this past weekend, there will be no Blessing of Frost this week. Tune in on Tuesday, June 7th, for our next episode!
Month: May 2011
Episode 21 – Summer Slowdown
Summer is nearly upon us in the northern hemisphere and that means the dreaded summer slowdown is a possible stumbling block for raiding guilds (PVP guilds, RP guilds) throughout WoW. Any kind of guild where group participation is required in some fashion could be affected. What can combat this? How does guild management deal with this?
Our special guest this week is Serrinne (aka Sara), a raiding holy priest of ours in Apotheosis.
Fortune Card that Kurn flipped: You are very fortunate!

Lovely people YOU should follow because they were awesome enough to tweet me back about how they’re going to deal with summer slowdown stuff:
@JinxedThoughts: My bfs guild did a schedule to track everyones absence to make sure they had every raid event covered with enough people. From first of june to last of august
@Vosskah: we have a similar thread for planned absences. I also send raid invites a month ahead now to help with planning.
@mageic: nothing, as we are coming into Winter here 😀
@matticus: with even more massive recruiting!
@JoeEgo812: Fight the apathy with recruitment & gkicks.
@Shetawy: Continue the show. it must go on after all!
And speaking of following people on twitter, check out Apotheosis (@ApotheosisET) and follow Kurn (@kurnmogh). Don’t forget to rate us up on iTunes!
Finally, Sara wants all healers to go to PlusHeal.com (run by Matticus of World of Matticus) and engage in some awesome healer talk.
Episode 20 – Switching is Srsbusiness!
Our 20th episode of Blessing of Frost is out and our special guest this week is Srsbusiness, a shadow priest raider in Apotheosis. Our subject this week is about people switching mains — why they do it, as well as the problems it can cause or even resolve, particularly in a raiding guild.
We cut the Hot Fix segment out this week because we rambled a bit and didn’t want to go as long as we did, but do check out the official Blizzard hotfixes:

Kurn asked Twitter:
Have you ever changed raiding mains? Tweet me the WHY, now!
Here are some lovely people you should follow because they were awesome to respond to us!
Episode 19 – Money Matters
Welcome one and all to Episode 19 of Blessing of Frost! This week’s guest is Ludde, one of the tanks in Apotheosis, and this week’s topic is guild funds! How to get money in your guild bank and how you might want to go about spending it.
The quest Kurn finally read to learn about the overall “I see dead people” in Strat Live: The Dreadlord Balnazzar
Sadly, I do NOT have a screenshot of Ludde in guild chat to include here, although I swear I thought I took one. Apologies!

Welcome to Jasyla of Cannot be Tamed!
Also, we were wrong. Guild banks were introduced in 2.3, the same patch that brought us Zul’Aman back in Burning Crusade.
Episode 19 Next Week
Due to the Canadian federal elections today, May 2nd, Blessing of Frost will not be recorded this week. Tune in next week for a brand-new episode of shenanigans, hosted by Majik and Kurn!
In the meantime, why not catch up with previous episodes of Blessing of Frost?
You can also rate us up on iTunes!
Have a great week and Canadians — get yourselves out to the polls! All the info you need is here at Elections Canada. 🙂
