Standard disclaimer: Leave your loathing of meta, World of Warcraft, or community diaries outside. If you think we should be playing your MMO instead, start a guild and write a recruitment diary. Don't leave a comment here and then get all hurtful when it isn't received with flowers and candy. This goes double for people coming in to attack guildies over other diaries or comments - STAY OUT! Link to your recruitment diary is OK though.
Standard advertisement: Wreck List is the Daily Kos World of Warcraft guild. We are Horde-side on the Garrosh server. To join, read this diary and visit the Guild web site to put in an application. Yes, you have to be Horde. No, you don't have to be hardcore - casuals, PvPers, and people that just want to hang out on guild chat are all welcome.
More below the fold:

So, as I said last week, this week I will be talking about the account-wide mountthat you get from hitting Exalted with the Lorewalkers in Pandaria: The Red Flying Cloud.

Yes, it's a long rep grind, one of many to do in Pandaria. You could spend days slogging over every half-acre in the expansion, digging Archaeology sites, and slowly getting that Lorewalkers rep up.

Or you could watch this video that Ninotchka posted on the guild forums and get it done in about an hour and a half, with no Archaeology.

Yes, you have to level up to 90 to get this. I don't think you need to train flight in Pandaria for it, but doing so beforehand will make it way, way easier.

Basically the idea is that there are lore objects scattered across Pandaria that, when collected, allow you to learn a bit of Pandaria background lore. Each item gives Lorewalker reputation, and is a component for an object that you'll get in your mailbox that also gives Lorewalker reputation. Together, they will get you well into Exalted...if you knew where all the lore objects were.

Well, that's where the above video comes in. Not only do the Lorewalkers offer what has got to be the nicest mount I've seen so far, but also a tabard for you tabard collectors out there, and two really sweet Archaeology aids.

Colleen and Santiaga are still in the news. Taymatt points us to her web page, where she posts some ways that you can help out. She really needs outgoing phone bankers with social skills. Just sayin.

Three Ways To Help
October 5, 2012 — Colleen Lachowicz

I’ve received hundreds of responses from people via e-mail, Facebook, and even a couple of voicemails. By and large, almost everything people had to say was supportive. A lot of people were asking questions about how they could help the campaign – so, here’s how to do that. Please share this page with your friends to spread the word.

1) If you know anyone in the municipalities of Albion, Benton, Clinton, Detroit, Pittsfield, Waterville, Winslow, and the unorganized township of Unity (which isn’t the same as the town of Unity next door!), please encourage them to support us. Obviously a vote in the district is the most important thing we can have.

2) Volunteer. Lots of people expressed a regret that they were not local enough to volunteer. However, nowadays campaigns use web-based software that allows you to make calls into the district from anywhere. If you can devote some time to making calls or knocking doors for the campaign, call Amy Cookson at  (207) 370-4304 .

3) Head to the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee and fill out their form saying you’d like our race to be one of their 2012 Essential Races. Certainly it seems that people think this is a race to watch, so tell those in Democratic Party leadership that you feel the same way. Our district is Maine Senate District 25.

I am grateful for and humbled by all the kind words and support offered to me. Whether you can help the campaign or not, thank you for taking something which was very hurtful to me personally and turning it into something that makes me smile. The Internet will never cease to amaze me. I am going to try to respond personally to all the e-mails I have received, but this is not a large campaign, and I also have to, well, campaign!

So how did Saturday Night Massacre go? Well, we tried the Sha of Anger with about 15 guildies and we got beaten like a cheap drum. Sadface. Then we tried again with 25 guildies and did a little better. Finally we decided to stop horsing around, take the Sha of Anger seriously, and got a full forty-person raid (which may be, IIRC, the largest raid I've ever been in) and we ruined the Sha of Anger's evening. Someone has screenshots.

This week, the Darkmoon Rabbit. Because Darkmoon. Rabbit.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
