As the leader of a small, casual guild in World of Warcraft, I have found it increasingly difficult to recruit following the introduction of the Dungeon Finder tool, however in past expansions we have always managed to somehow scrape our way through raids, calling on friends and PuGs to fill our numbers each week if necessary, and even experimenting with guild merges between ourselves and other guilds in similar situations.

If you’ve been playing since The Burning Crusade, you will remember a time where there was no such thing as a Dungeon
Note: While some things are the same or similar between the two, this article focuses on the Level 85 Heroic version of Shadowfang Keep.
As we have all been playing World of Warcraft: Cataclysm for a couple of months now, one would think that most of us have experienced most of the end-game content.

Personally, I am in the former camp. ZA and ZG are two of my favourite raids from years goneby, and I am looking forward to being able to experience them again. The fact that there isrecycled content doesn’t bother me in the slightest, in fact I am quite looking forward to therevamped versions of the gear we used to wear. Call me sentimen...
As we should all be fully aware of by now, World of Warcraft: Cataclysm has been out and playable for three weeks. The expansion was greedily and enthusiastically gobbled up by fans and newcomers alike, all wanting a piece of the new, forever transformed Azeroth that we were promised (and delivered). So now that the hype, server lag and ganking has calmed down, and the festive season is nearly over its time for me to take a step back and reflect on what has changed and what has not (but may seem like it has).
Now, please bear with me for a moment - perhaps it is something to do with being a woman, being my age and having the friends I do, but right now seems to be a great time of year to get engaged and/or married. People have weddings on the brain. For some reason t
