Saturnalia: 3-Manning World of Warcraft

Saturnalia is a guild that some friends of mine and I started, and almost entirely by accident we started 3-manning lots of the old-world instances. Turns out it's quite hard to do, but fun in ways that most of the stuff I've been doing in World of Warcraft for the last few years just isn't. We've done all of the old-world (Azeroth) instances from RFC to BRD and now we're working on the level 60 instances and will then move on to Outland. We should hit level 70 just in time for the Wrath of the Lich King expansion, and we'll just keep 3-manning everything we can in that expansion.

Some things we've discovered about the game:

  • A paladin as tank can make a lot of content much easier
  • Shamans are wonderful at healing and dpsing in whatever ratio is required
  • In general the hybrid classes are more valuable for undersized groups
  • Twinking with outrageous gear is definitely not required
  • Voice chat is a must if you're not in the same room

It's been a fun ride, and I hope it continues to be. See you in the game!
