Cold Comfort: The Archives

This is the archive of a blog I wrote in 2009 and 2010 (i.e. midway through WotLK and into the start of Cataclysm), primarily focusing on topics around Guild Management, mixed in with some general WoW commentary and rants.

I came across a backup of the site recently and in reading a few of the articles was struck by how relevant many of the topics are, even ten years later. We might not have the concerns around loot systems since BfA made personal loot the only system in the game, but things like dealing with nerdrage and setting reasonable expectations around running with pugs feel like nothing has changed.

I hope you find at least some of what I wrote back then interesting. I have no plans to start posting again, but plans can always change.

Stumped where to start? There are categories and tags over on the right side. The full index is also available if you just want to skim over titles to find something that looks interesting. My list of the best of 2009's articles might also be a good jumping off point.

Keep Going, it's Fine

I would be remiss if I didn't give a shout out to and recommendation to my current raiding guild, Keep Going It's Fine (A) on Aerie Peak-US. We're an AotC guild that tends to do 3-4 Mythic bosses each tier, which I think is pretty impressive given our two night schedule. If you're looking for that kind of team, feel free to ping me on Discord (Elocie#3474) and I'll get you in touch with the right people.
