How was my week in WoW:

Garrison Mission Rewards : 2 Medallions of the Legion, 14,000 Apexis, 6000 gold, 5000 Resources, Baleful Tokens, and lots more

A bunch of Warsong Gulch on my Human Rogue, 4 flags to go to be Revered with Silverwing Sentinels :D

Leveled Blood Elf Paladin to 93, with the help of Grand Nagus I Got Blook Follower, and Tormmok...

Farming herbs in Vashj’ir (screenshot included).  Funny business farming Herbs (Azshara’s Veil), Twin World Bosses swimming near Each other….


Logging into Garrison Friday night (screenshot Included).  Kicked out of front door to garrison when i logged in along with another 20 people, waited for the garrison to come up to avoid being bugged out of Earthen Ring for any length of time.  Leveling followers, hearthstone on CD.



Rain

My week started out kinda slow…
During a pause in recording last week, Constraxx helped me get an achievement for /wave-ing…

I soloed Sunwell Plateau on Cobblesmythe, and had a Wretched Servant drop for me, but since I already have one...chatroom giveaway!

I also decided to visit my original server after seeing how DEAD Silvermoon City is on Earthen Ring...started a new Mordrain to replace the one I transferred off a few years ago.  She’s sitting at level 8 now.  (And yes, Silvermoon City is still the bustling hub it always had been on Wyrmrest Accord.)

Then on Sunday the noobs (being Grand Nagus, Shinn, and Big G) had to get started without Vrishna or I.  I got home and helped out as soon as I was able, and we did three old raids for pet farming.
We did Mount Hyjal again, nada.
Then we did Black Temple.  I got a Sister of Temptation. (P.S. chatroom giveaway!)
Last we did Serpentshrine Cavern.  Nada.  Though, GoblinBabe did fish up the Lurker Below and managed to get both Journeyman Fisherman AND The Lurker Above achievements in one cast.

For the next two days work took precedence and I barely was able to check my garrison stuffs.
On Friday, I decided to get some lowbies leveled.  I got three toons to 20, two were at about 15 to begin with, the third was newly created.
Wymzikal the goblin shaman
Aynslee the Panda Monk
And the new toon Rashaa the Tauren druid.

Lastly, just for the giggles, my screenshot addon took this.  Might be a rare, I’m not sure, but I thought it was funny.
Oh!  Saturday Night Noobs after the podcast today!

Emails.png

Hello Control Alt Wow Peoples!

I should come up with a better email subject line, but meh.

I'm looking forward to what other clips people have loved from your past episodes, and am happy I was able to provide inspiration for your contest!

My time in WoW has been spent trying to decide what to do out of all the things I want to do.  Do I work on my main priest and get him geared for raiding and set up the garrison for money making?  Do I start leveling all my other alts to 100?  Do I continue to level my panda monk on Earthen Ring and eventually get around to asking for a guild invite?  Should I try making a challenge toon?  It's the curse of those who come back after a break: while many complain about not having anything to do because all the content is old now, I have too much I want to do!  

Also, Pandaria is amazing and I'm so sad I missed out that expansion while it was current.  I remember mocking Pandaria back in the Cataclysm era, but boy was I wrong.  Great stories, fantastic lore, and beautiful scenery.  

I made another clip.  This one is from episode 259, and it's Aprillian trying to do an imitation of Big G while reading his email.  It made me smile at least.  Enjoy!

My very first voice submission!
Helloooooo CAW crew!

I'm super excited to send you guys my very first voice submission, yaaaay! Finally, right?? It isn't terribly long, because I'm just waiting on my wife to finish getting ready so we can make good use of our Six Flags season passes, but I just really wanted to touch in with you all today, since I'm sure I won't really be able to catch the show live (bummer!)

I'm really hoping everyone is doing well, and please give Constraxx my best for his wife's speedy recovery! I'll be sure to catch everyone on Discord at some point :)

Your friendly neighborhood druid,
Sae <3



Hello from the living embodiment of rule 34
I just took this time to say hello and can you hear me it would been nice to have you say something from the other side of well maybe something had happened and you weren't going to be there. Please think of Shinn he was so innocent was. Plus had to move some furniture for a female co worker the other day and when time for payment come my desired terms were meet with much blushing and head shaking in the negative so I had fruit bread instead. Her first mistake telling me where she lives her second letting me in.

Leveling update
Greetings CAW Crew,

Just a quick update this week.  My leveling quest is nearly completed.  My warrior Maethil is level 100!  That is the last of the classes completed.

Only one race left to level.  My gnome is currently at level 80, and building up rested XP for her assault on the Cataclysm levels.

On the transmog front, I was able to complete the red mage set from Sunwell Plateau and the rogue set from Molton Core.  I have attached screenshots for the two sets.

Have a great show, and happy transmogging.

The future of toys
Hello Aprillian, Vrishna, Rain, Chatroom and guests,

Have you all got your tickets for the Warcraft movie?

A few days left until it is aired here in Germany (26.05.)  which is a lot earlier than US I believe? Everyone is excited about the goodie: if you bought your ticket from a certain cinema chain, they offer a free game code for all expansion until Draenor I believe. The offer is not very appealing to me as I try to keep the number of accounts I own to a minimum. Anyway, I am looking forward to the transmog items which everyone will receive if you log into the game between May 25th and August 1st.
As I am away on vacation during the movie launch, I had to persuade my girlfriend to take me to the movies on our vacation, which she gladly accepted under one condition, she wants me to buy her a lot of beer so she can withstand the movie until the end :)))

As you know, every Monday while on my way to work I listen to the show. It was lovely to hear about Constraxx good deeds last week and also about a topic which immediately captured my attention "TOYS".

My collection of toys is not so big atm. but I am slowly started to collect everything which might turn into a toy in legion. Wowhead has a list of such toys and the majority of them are easily collected while doing Draenor treasures.

Another thing Wowhead offers, is their Profiler where you can track your collection and see what's missing. Here is the view of my collection.

Toys wowhea.png

Last time I was in the show I have mentioned a UFO I have spotted at the Iron Front in Tanaan and no one knew what it was. I've posted the question on Twitter and Evlyxx another great Podcaster I enjoy listening too had clarified the mystery of my sighting. (see screenshot below). Blizzard CS have also replied to my question in a weird way :))


Screen Shot 2016-05-21 at 16.47.16.png
Other that not so many news from my side. Still busy with work and almost no time for gaming.

Have a great show tonight, greetings and kisses to everyone.

Off to pack my bags for a week long vacation out in the real world!

Cheers
Marz.


Attached is a quick audio.

P.s. i DM'd you back Aprillian on Twitter.

Cheers,

Rigarmorty

Hi everyone - I've been working the WoW Challenges leveling contest, and I've finally got one that seems to be sticking around! Ironslider, my human paladin, hit 31 last evening, and I'll be getting back to her as soon as I get this week's guild updates on their way. I guess they've arrived, if you're reading this, so hopefully she's gotten even further by now. By then. I'm giving myself a headache.

Enjoy this week's guild updates, and I hope you're all having as lovely a day as I intend to have / am having / whee!

Nice week in WoW, Just amazing people to hang out with in Battlegrounds… I capped on Conquest.

I've run some Warsong gulch for the PvP quest in the garrison.
I did specific BG queue to get 4 wins, which meant that i got rep with Silverwing Sentinels.

Selling some pets on Earthen Ring cuz i ran out of gold when i got to 90.

Hammering some CD's on my main on Thorium Brotherhood US Alliance.

No time to work on Valor except for  the 500 from the weekly PvP quest.
Hours of typing and chatting to Dischord server, everyone very supportive of my wife's stay in hospital. :D

Rain
Not a whole lot to report for my week this week.  I did the garrison shuffle quite a bit, with loads of repeat basic achievements that really don’t need spotlighting.  

After the show last week I found out I have garrison achievements that allow me to put monuments up!
Apexis monument

Profession monument

We did Saturday Night Noobs, the lineup was Big G, me, and Vrishna (x4.)  First we did Battle for Mount Hyjal.  Took us a while to figure out where it was, then another while to figure out how to start it, but we finally finished it.  :)
Zombiecow Tank

Then we headed off to Draenor to do some current content.  We convinced G to get his first garrison, too!  No screenshots of that, though.  We did run around frostfire ridge killing some rares for upgraded armor bits, though.
Kill kill kill!!!

Came across this player in Ashran…..wonder if it’s someone she knows?

My Strange Green Fruit ripened!  How awesome!  I get to be a podling!

Hello everyone!

Long story short, I used to play WoW from the end of Burning Crusade until near the end of Cata, listened to your show back when it was just Aprillian Ashayo and Glanthur,  and it was good times.  I remember when you found a stray Vrishna and taught him the glories of WoW, when Juuno started her emails, MoMo moments, Loremaster Blade, and when Bind on Equip started and all the shenanigans with Wych Wemb and Tempeste.

Now that I'm almost done with my second bachelors degree (going on to get a Masters of Education and teach high school Physics) I'm slowly finding time to get back into the game.  I played a little bit in late December, started listening to your shows again, and loved how the podcast is still all about great people just enjoying the game in whatever way that makes them happy.

I got bored one day and started listening to some of the older podcast episodes I've missed, and I came across these two funny clips from episode 254 that you may enjoy. I know I certainly got a laugh from them.  The first clip introduces a "love is in the air" mount, and the second about the lonely people no one visits in order to get all the love tokens you can in a day and the shock of the auction house price of the new mount.  Hope you enjoy!

Your buddy,

Kyle


Good day Ctrl Alt Wow crew, hope you are all well?
It was all about the PVP this week! Been having a blast in Ashran, BG’s and world PVP. During the recording last week, I joined an Alliance Nemesis Death squad! Basically we formed a raid and separated into nemesis groups within the raid. We then proceeded to run RIOT and gank anything that moved in Warspear and Taanan - it was great fun! 40 people swooping in on Vol’mar and obliterating EVERYTHING! They didn’t know what hit them!
[some screen shots below]
I have been getting a crazy amount of honour this week, so I have been collecting old PVP sets and weapons for transmog, although I am quickly running out of things to buy! I can easily cap 4000 honour in one Ashran – it’s crazy! I managed to get all my 500 kills of the Undead and now have ‘the Death Stalker’ title. From there I went on to complete the Blood Elf nemesis quest and got the ‘Slayer of Sin’dorei’ title.
I also got the achievement for 5000 honour kills in Draenor (Defender of Draenor) which gave me the monument in the Garrison – which is nice. I also got exalted with Wrynns Vanguard and bought the Breeze Strider, Pale Thorngrazer and Shadowmane Charger mounts. Oh and I got gold capped for the second time! J [epeen alert]
Just a few beginner tips for Ashran.
1.       Once in Ashran be patient when it comes to forming a group, sometimes it can take a little while to form a good group. Although you can usually tell quite quick if the group has potential. If they’re arguing and acting like ass hats, then just leave as you’ll just be wasting your time.  
2.       Get familiar with the map and where things are located (buffs etc.). Also get to know the abbreviations as they will be used all the time.
3.       Search for people in group finder (or ask in raid) and group up with people on the same nemesis quest as yourself as you will get credit for their kills also (this can make it considerably quicker).
4.       Collect and buff up with ‘Song Flowers’ (15% increase to all stats) you find them around ‘The Dark Woods’ near ‘Brutes Rise’ (you can stock up to 10 a time). If everyone in the raid has the buff up it can make a difference.
5.       [The most important] Always stick together otherwise you will get nowhere! Fight together - win together! Fight alone - die alone!
See ya – I’ll miss you

My week in WoW!
Greetings, CAW crew!

Sae here - I'm afraid I wasn't able to get a voice submission together because I'm trapped in a car with my family for who knows how long, haha. I'm starting to think the universe is working against me ever getting to send one in!

Anyway, my week in WoW was a good one! I've been working on levelling alts, and I'm happy to say I've now got most of my characters into Draenor!
I've only got three characters (minus my Iron toon) that still need to be levelled up to current content. Thankfully, they're all set to head to Outland for the first time, and I'm pretty excited for that - haha I was starting to get a little tired of old world stuff after having done it 15 times recently.

So I've been thinking of seeing if people wanted to get together to watch the Warcraft movie when it comes out, since I see so many groups popping up and I haven't seen any pop up around me.

But I'm not sure how many people live around Albany, NY where I live! If you guys know of anyone who'd like to get together and watch the film, let me know! Maybe we can make a thing of it :D

I'll end here for now - I'm hoping to be able to actually catch the show live this week, and I look forward to seeing you all in game! Also, I figured I'd let Vrishna know that I've been saying 'grats' as I listen to the shows during the week. Sorry I haven't been on the game to do it live :P

As always, I remain your friendly neighborhood druid,

Saeureon <3


(from Tiber)
Greetings Control Alt WoW crew!

Awww, he's not grotesque, just a little gnarly.  :D

While attending the Control Alt WoW live chatroom is always rewarding, winning the Grotesque pet last week made it even better.  Thank you so much!  I am attaching a picture of my new pet, out in Stonetalon with my hunter.

I have been having a lot of fun in game, as usual.  Last week Leeta, and Stone announced an Ironman leveling contest.  I thought it would be fun to try, even though I don't expect to win.  I am just trying to see how close to the front runners I can get, and hopefully I will still have a living Ironman when it ends.

My first contestant was an Orc Shaman named Cautiouslee.  Sadly, Cautiouslee wasn't cautious enough, and got jumped by two Theremore marines.  Those guys hit really hard, for their level!  My new contestant is Judiciouslee, a Draenei shaman.  I really didn't want to run the Orc starting area again so soon, so I changed races.  Wish me luck!

I am probably stealing Vrishna's sign off, but... We who are about to die salute you! - Tiber

Too much social
Hello Aprillian, Vrisha, Rain, Chatroom and Guests

Until June I am woking every second Saturday :( and when I have one weekend off I have to catch up with a lot of my real life friends.
Haven't played Warcraft this week at all. My PC has already spiderwebsI believe. Two weeks ago I got into Overwatch beta and had a lot of fun. Some of the guys from our LGBT guild joined as well and we pulled some really good matches.
With limited time this week, Hearthstone was the only Blizzard game I had in my hands right before falling asleep at night. I am Rank 17 in Standard and Wild. Heard Big G struggles a bit in Hearthstone maybe I could give him some tips for good combo decks.

Right... have to put my device down as I am currently watching Eurovision song contest in a bar with some friends and already get moaned at that I am not paying attention.

Have a great show! Greetings to all,

Marz


Everyday I'm pet battling
So its been another busy week and here hopefully is my audio

P.S I remember it was the garrison they helped get me my first garrison and a heap of rares that dropped cloth and caster gear.
