Whoa Whoa Whoa!

Have you seen this? Wow. We could get lost in it for a long time.

We still want the real screenshots/url to someone who meets our gear-requirements for a special project, but Warcrafter is a place we’re going to spend a lot of time. We’ve even put them in our WoW Research Sites sidebar.

We’re Looking For Someone…

Are you a hunter? Good!

Are you level-70? Good!

Are you in pre-Kara gear? Good!

Do you have a Valanos Longbow or equivalent? Good!

Do you have a Sonic Spear, Hellforged Halberd, or Blackened Spear? Good!

Do you have the following enchants:

  • Melee 2h Weapon: +35 Agi or Savagery
  • Ranged Weapon: +10 or +12 Damage
  • Helm: Glyph of Ferocity
  • Shoulder: Honored Aldor/Scryer inscription
  • Cloak: +12 Agi
  • Chest: +6 All Stats
  • Bracers: +24 RAP
  • Gloves: +26 RAP or +7 Agi (+15 Agi is good, too)
  • Leggings: Cobrascale or Clefthide armor kit
  • Boots: +12 Agi

You do? Good! We want your armory profile! A link to it, you know what we mean.

Do you have Kara or better gear? Badge of Justice of PvP gear? Mostly quests greenies? No thank you.

Do you have engineering or leatherworking gear? Stuff from the Auction House? That’s fine.

Standard talent builds only, please, and you must be willing to have your armory profile published on this blog.

Are you out there?

Edit: Folks we’re quite serious about the requirements. ALL the enchants, NO Kara or greater or PvP gear, standard 41/20/0, 0/41/20, 0/20/41, or 0/31/30 raiding spec. After the first 15 35 comments, we’re still looking.

Our First Reader-Question

Dear BRK, FYI it doesn’t appear that your banner works under Firefox 2.0.0.11 running on my Macbook, but the WOWHead popups are working fine. Gary”

Folks, if something doesn’t show up, looks kaboozled, is misplaced, or just blatently pathetic, it’s probably our fault. We are learning as we go and sometimes nuke important things.

Yes, we thought we copied the banner to a new theme we were playing with, but we actually moved it. For a small time, this theme was bannerless. However, the BRK Code Elves sprang into action and copied the banner back.

Speaking of the banner, do you like the outline we got around it? (Seriously you don’t need to answer that.) That’s the type of detail we love to get right.

We have a “title” now!

We did not before because it printed that text right in our banner. Somebody complained that we didn’t have a title, and we can’t have that! So we nuked some stuff in the header.php file and POOF! much better. We have a title and our banner isn’t muddled.

We realize that for many of you this is pathetic, 1st-grade stuff that you could have your dog perform. Please bear with us as we celebrate our minor achievements. Thank you.

Welcome!

Let’s get this party started! We’re nowhere near done and there’s going to be loads of changes to come.But this is our new home, for better or for worse.Let’s hope for the better, shall we?

Edit: First problem solved, comment moderation turned off. OK folks, there’s a boatload of stuff we’re going to mess up, switch wrong, delete, and just plain f-up. Please, no rioting.

Edit 2: Some “BRK Is Moving” FAQs:

We are not sticking with this theme; it is temporary. Don’t diss the colors, we don’t like them either.

The old site will remain up until such time as we feel confident… about everything.We have one bachelors degree in Computer Science, but that does NOT mean we have a clue what we’re doing.

All the links-sections will be recreated, but it’ll take some doin’. Patience, younglings.

The forums, or should we say “forum”, is there because we can have it. No work will be done on it until the blog is just right.

We did get the banner up - that was the #1 Critical Item - and the WoWhead popups work. Also, we caused neither the atmosphere to catch fire, the Alps to rise, nor Los Angeles to sink into the Pacific. And Mrs BRK didn’t fillet us for the $80 we spent on hosting. We’re really proud of all that.
