The idea of the blog is to create a central location for all news, articles and guides for World of Warcraft expansion, Cataclysm. Coverage includes class changes, feature news, media coverage and all other things Cataclysm. The goal is to make cataclysmguide.net the one-stop source for everything relating to the latest WoW expansion.
If you have any content you would like to contribute to the site, or would like to request coverage of any specific topics, please send me an e-mail.
Cataclysm Guide has a small but dedicated staff that works hard to keep you up to date with recent developments in the expansion. If you want to join the team, please get in touch with Lisa.
Lisa (Site Owner and Editor-in-Chief)
Lisa is a long-time gamer who fondly remembers her first days on a computer, playing Dune 2. Playing PC Games since the age when Xerox was the bane of copy-protection she adores anything with a mouse and keyboard that makes characters move. She’s been into MMORPGs since seeing Meridian 59 at a friends house, but hasn’t truly gotten into the habit (read: addiction) until the days of Everquest.
Lisa has been following WoW since 2004 and has been actively playing it since the EU release in 2005. Due to moving around a lot she got to play on German, UK, and Oceanic servers (which, admittedly don’t really differ much from each other). Unlike previous MMO titles (big sorcerer/wizard/mage fan), her main in WoW is a Rogue, though she has dabbled around with druids and other classes a bit. PvP and PvE is equally her cup of tea, and she tend to be where my other guild mates can be found.
Frank has been playing World of Warcraft on and off for the last 5 years. Originally starting out with a Warlock, he then switched to playing a Warrior. Playing both classes for quite a while probably has given him a good perspective on the different aspects of WoW.
So why switch from Warlock to Warrior? Frank wanted to switch from a role on the raid sidelines to the very center and so far hasn’t regretted it. Admittedly, his in-game social life is suffering (they should rename DPS into ‘networking’ classes) given that he now has an hour less to chat at every raid. However, being actually an important part makes up for it.
Brett is a year away from finishing a world-opening liberal arts degree. When not busy munching Cheerios or actually getting some freelance work done (web design, photoshop), he can be found hanging around battlegrounds and arenas with one of his three twinks. Long-time rogue, occasional mage and experimental shaman are what characterizes his WoW experience best. Brett is rumored to be open to Arena bribes if they involve Chili Cheese Nuggets. Aside from collecting vanity pets (and trade skills), he’s a faction and achievement fanatic, caring little for worldly concerns like stats and resistances. He’s mortally afraid of ever working for Burger King for fear of the damage this would inflict upon his diet. Past MMO experience includes Runescape (…), Warhammer Online and Aion.
Leena might be a newbie in the MMO world but she’s not entirely new to the console game at all. As an RPG veteran, Leena have spent hours with Dragon Quest, Star Ocean and of course, Final Fantasy. Playing all by herself and solo-grinding is fun and all but sometimes, she just wish that there would be someone she could consult when the going get tough.
She figures out that now it’s time to step into the vast world of MMORPG and meet lots of people on board. Intrigued by a long history of World of Warcraft, Leena jump into to Azeroth without hesitation. The new expansion looks promising so far and it seems to be better than the last expansion.
Alex is the youngest and the newest member of the team but that doesn’t stop him from contributing to the CataclysmGuide community. Wanting to become a writer in the gaming industry, Alex is working his way by sharing his knowledge with us.
He is not only a vivid gamer but also a passionate writer. With a long time experience as a World of Warcraft player who travels the land of Azeroth since the era of the Burning Crusades, Alex will share with us what he had learnt and what he will find with the Cataclysm. There’s so much to learn and so much to see in this new expansion. An uncharted land is waiting to be discovered, new races to meet and new skills to learn.
