As some of you know this is a fairly new WoW blog, so I don’t know about all the other WoW blogs our there. I’m starting to look around more though, really!

So here are a few I just bumped into via a post on the Twisted Nether Blogcast: Writing an Article Series. I am also linking to the actual article series posted on these sites, where appropriate.

They’re all fun blogs, so check them out even if you don’t have the appropriate class.

4 HaelzWhy Join Before the Expansion? The Time is Now is a five-part series on joining a raiding guild before the expansion. 4 Haelz is a blog about Druids in general and the resto tree in specific.

World of Matticus Assigning Healing Strategy – Part 1: Recognizing Class Strengths. Lots of raid and priest stuff here, but also a lot of other good stuff.

Hoof and Healz – If you’re a resto shammy and you raid you’ll want to check this one out. Raid Guides

Aspect of the Hare – A cool blog for Hunters. Their tag line says it all: Because it’s not just a class, it’s an obsession. So if you have a Hunter, check it out. So You Want to Play a Hunter

Too Many Annas– Blogging about Life, Resto Shammies, Raids, Warcraft and other Musings. A fun read. Be a Shamanistic Genius (while you level)!

Ok, now I’m going to kill something in AV. Maybe a big sheep thing…
