Back to My Roots

I thought it would be proper to let you guys know where I’ve been and where I’ll be heading. I’ve recently “come back into my own” and revived my old segment “Under the Hood” with Rawrcast over at http://www.rawrcast.com.

I can’t say that I plan to keep this blog going on a regular basis, any writings done for Under the Hood will be primarily be based on PC hardware and I’m really looking forward to getting back to my roots. I thank everyone who took interest in this small project of mine for the week or two it existed, I’m not going anywhere else anytime soon…thanks again to everyone.

Why Blog, Why Now?

Up until recently I had considered my time in World of Warcraft to be fairly typical of many players. Aside from getting involved in a raiding guild and getting to know people via Vent I have taken on a number of other “projects” within the out of game community. My initial first hand experience in the community surrounding this game was when Stomplina and Hafrot from Rawrcast agreed to take me on doing recordings for the “Under the Hood” segment. On a weekly basis I came to the show and spent 5 to 10 minutes discussing PC hardware and relating it to the general WoW player. Unfortunately the pre-recorded nature of the segment ended up leaving me feeling slightly detached from the whole experience and my “run” on the show ended after 13 installments. Continue reading

Introductions

I thought it seemed proper to start things off formally. My goal for this blog is to have a place to share my points of view on news related to both WoW and PC hardware. I’m a hardware fanatic who would often rather be overclocking, benchmarking or modding my PC then playing games but WoW has slowly started to leech more and more of that time.

I’ve been building and overclocking computers for 9 or 10 years and playing WoW for about 3, this has left me slightly less jaded towards the game then many people. In WoW the majority of my time is either spent raiding or working on useless achievements as a time sink. As the name of the blog implies I play a Paladin as my main with Holy as my main spec and Ret for solo play.

As I said, this will be more a congregation of personal views and opinions than a news source in addition to musings about overclocking and system building. I’m not here solely to nab as many subscribers as possible but if any of the above interests you enough to warrant a return visit then great. Initially my intent is to post at least a few times each week but the content will never be forced. There may be weeks in which you see 13 posts go up and some containing 4 or 5. All in all my goal for this blog is to offer relatively clean, uncensored commentary on the passions which I value most…hopefully that will be apparent enough that you might want pop in once and awhile. 😉
