Howdy, everyone. I’ve been on a bit of a hiatus with finals and papers and getting married, etc. I’m finished all that now, though, so here’s to enjoying the rest of my summer and hopefully posting a little more regularly. At least until school starts again.

I’ll get back to posts I started before my hiatus later, today I’m more interested in what it means to become a better player, and why it’s important to know that you have areas in which you can improve.

Welcome!

As a relatively new level 70 Druid, I’m finding that I need more and more information to get around in Azeroth. I’ve been reading WoW Insider and Resto4Life for almost all of my little bits of “oh, cool,” while for whatever reason (such as being at work) I can’t play. I tend to use WoW Wiki for most of my dungeon running info, and Thottbot for my gear and crafting needs. What I don’t seem to have is a really good grasp of what other people in my groups can and should be doing. I’d like to have a more complete picture, and I hope that others will also find my discoveries helpful.

A brief anecdote as to why this is important after the break:
