3.1 is live

It’s available for download now, though I’m hearing that most, if not all, servers are offline.

Official 3.1 Patch notes: http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/patchnotes/

We’ll be hitting Ulduar immediately when the servers are up and will start developing our guides in the next 24 hours, so keep checking this space for updates. If you’re not on the mailing list — get on it!

A quick word on the plan.

When Ulduar hit PTR, I noticed something. A bunch of sites out there were copying and pasting info about boss abilities off of Wowhead, maybe adding one or two lines of commentary, calling them “strats,” and advertising them with big flashy graphics.

Off the top of my head, I can only think of one site which consistently was writing at least one paragraph of original content about how to actually kill the boss. It sort of pissed me off, because I’d click these strats/guides, and there was basically no content there. I’m sure this generated lots of hits and advertising clicks for those sites, but where’s the value?

So I decided we weren’t going to do that on World of Strats. We are going to publish quality Ulduar guides based on experience inside the instance. If we don’t have value to add we are not going to publish bullshit. Granted we will document the abilities just like everyone else, but as always, the focus of our guides will be on making it clear what you actually have to do to complete the encounter on normal, on heroic, with hard modes, with achievements…

Stay tuned.
