How To: Run a GDKP Loot System

[Sep 3, 2010 | No Comment] by: Jason Zimmerman

Thanks to Malekai for the original email for this post.

GDKP, which stands for Gold DKP, is a loot system in which players bid gold on items that drop in a raid rather than rolling on it.

Cataclysm Beta: Skills, Trainers and Professions

[Jul 30, 2010 | 4 Comments] by: Jason Zimmerman

My first action in the Cataclysm Beta was to create a Goblin. I wanted to create a Worgen but as of a few days ago the Worgen character creation is broken. Therefore I’m starting with Goblins, then going to Worgen, then to the new high level content.

In my next post I’ll start talking about my thoughts on the Goblin starting zone and the quests. (The area definitely has a unique feel to it and …
