The Site

I started this site as a way to write about paladin tanking and force my views of recent WoW news upon an unwitting public.

The Player

I’m a 28 year-old Boston-area guy currently working in the technology publishing industry as a technical editor. I’ve been playing WoW off and on since launch way back in 2004, first as a Troll Hunter, and then as a Blood Elf Pally from 2007 to 2012, and finally now as a Human paladin from August of 2012 to the present.

I’m also currently the Protection Paladin columnist at WoW Insider. You can read my latest columns there via this feed.

The Toon

My main is Rhidach, a Human Paladin on the Moonrunner-US server. Currently and forever main-specced Protection. This blog is partly the story of his “adventures” in the game we all love.

I made up the word “rhidach” from jumbling around the Irish Gaelic word for knight, “ridire”. It is pronounced “rid-ik” (like, the “Chronicles of Riddick”), but I’ve heard people call me anything from “red-itch” to “ree-datchy” to “ry-dak”.

How to Contact Me

Send an email to rhidach [at] gmail [dot] com. I’ll get back to you as soon as I can.

You can also tweet me @Rhidach. I’m generally always reachable via Twitter except when sleeping.

Or, hell, roll an alt on Moonrunner and say hello!
