The Blog Azeroth shared topic for July 9 – July 15 was suggested by Dragonray from Azerothian Life:
Are you starstruck by anyone? Does someone in the community respond to a post or a tweet and get you all speechless because they actually responded? Is there anyone you are waiting to have respond directly to you? Is there someone that you would like to chat to, but are too chicken? Am I the only one who puts other bloggers on a pedestal?

Back in 2011 the Vortex Pinnacle boss Ertan, the Mild Mannered Vizier? was a ridiculously easy fight and thankfully Blizzard realised this in patch 4.0.6 and gave him a well deserved buff and the comment in the patch notes read:

He now knocks away players standing too close to him when he retracts his Cyclone Shield, which now inflicts Nature damage if it touches players.
Now I was a well geared raiding priest and could surely cope with such a small change to a boss I horribly outgeared? Wrong I failed horribly and so bad was I that I blogged about my fail, in a post called Do I Suck at Healing? 
This was more of a personal bitch about my failure and back in April 2011 even fewer people read my blog than I get now so I was really surprised when Malevica of Type “H” For Heals read my post and commented on it. On top of that he even went and did some research and ran Vortex Pinnacle and put his run up on World of Logs sadly the original has long since gone. An Interwebs blogosphere superstar doing all that for me! I was most definitely Starstruck and have been honored to be included as a “Worth a Look” on his blog roll ever since.

  1. Evlyxx this is my first visit here 🙂 And I just wanted to say I love your avatar and how it looks in your blog banner! And that feeling of being noticed by someone famous and them writing about you and directing traffic your way… wow you just feel so awed about it, there's almost no words to describe it. Sounds like you feel omg squeee about it, just like I do 🙂 Glad you joined the shared topic 🙂

    1. Thanks for visiting and for the kind words. The banner was thrown together one rainy afternoon after I gave up hope of finding some artistically gifted person to put onto paper the idea that I had in my head (which was nothing like the final result) and is something I want to tweak but not completely change for Pandacraft.

      Hope to see you around here more,

    1. That's a tad unfair. Didn't my arrival on teamspeak at the start of our Ulduar shard run the other night leave you shocked and in awe? 🙂
