(soul)Shards of memory

So, this isn't exactly an esports blog today, but it is about WoW.

I was playing on my warlock earlier and i figured that i never ever ran out of soulshards. Really, i don't think i've ever had zero, or even close to zero. So that means that at least one of my 28 Soulshards must be some kind of level ten Defias Brotherhood mob of some kind.

I'm not a roleplayer by any means, but i found it pretty interesting anyway. I wonder if i've got any interesting souls in my collection - i know my warlock spent a lot of time in SSC back in the day. Maybe i've been carrying The Lurker in my bags for three years and never realised.

I wonder if there's an addon, or some other way to find out what's in there, just for curiosity's sake.

Zechs-rated video footage?!

One thing i've wanted to get involved in for quite a long time is livestreaming/commentating. I've always been a bit shy about it but today i at least took the baby steps of downloading's free software and setting up a channel.

I don't know exactly what i want to do with it just yet, but ideally i want to commentate on live matches at some stage. It might take some time for me to get good/confident so if anyone has any tips they'd be much appreciated. As a bit of practice, i thought i might commentate the replays of SK's insider-only SC2 tournament. SC2 seems to have an odd mix of commentators but all the ones i've listened to at least know their stuff. At this early stage, with no BW experience, i think that is my biggest challenge. I feel like my vocabulary is better than the "omg wow omg i love that play omg" crap that comes out of some mouths but the trouble is that i'm still learning a new game.

Still, i'll give it a shot and see how it goes. Wish me luck!
