  1. We love this! Free information is the whole reason we started our blog in 2008. Keep up the good work, will link to it soon!

  2. Commendable effort Flux, I haven't had chance to fully indulge in the guide yet but it appears you have the most prominant topics covered. From a quick skim I might suggest including more images/media/audio clips to break down the monotony of text at times, but I'm sure you are conscious to save this material for the blog or possibly the paid variant?

    Anyway, love the blog, keep up the good work!

  3. I believe on one of the podcasts he said if there would be a paid version it would probably have all the extra images and videos while the plain text version remained free. So that might be why it doesn't have an indulge of those yet. I dunno though as I haven't had the chance to check it out. It's great to offer it in any format though :)

  4. @Shamalot Images are included in areas where the are most needed (addon sections for example).

    Plans are to refine the text over time on the free version and to create a "value-added" paid version sometime in the future. The paid version will most likely include additional content beyond what's included in the free version.

  5. Great work with the guide! I did a quick look through and there seems to be some great content. The TSM Guide is especially helpful for those starting out, and saves other bloggers from creating how-to posts as well. I look forward to digging in more in the coming weeks.

  6. Hi, I love the gold guide, and commend you on making it free to Warcraft players, what a wonderful resource. I recommend it to my newsletter list :)
