What We've Been Doing:

Leeta

Purple Tears :(
Helloo sweeties,


BIg group huggles!
Sorry no audio this week - to be honest it's just been a really rough week and my voice just is not up for it!
I do not even have the words to express the loss 😨 - Prince and Chyna were 2 people I have grown up with! Watching! Listening! Enjoying the different entertainment each provided me!.
Losing public people means no less then losing someone close - there is a still a profound effect of loss and sadness regardless! 😨
My week in WoW - my Iron just hit Lvl28! I have pushed her from Lvl7 right through! Just got Frost Trap at 28 and am loving my Boar called Bacon!
Gnome Leeta went Lvl23 - 28 with some questing and dungeons!
Ran couple dungeonws on the Monks - Lvl34 - 37!
And finally had enough mats to make the Geosynchronus World Spinner! Mount #280!
So in game it has been a good week!


I just want to sign out with:-


In the immortal words of Prince from one of my favourite songs -


I never meant to cause you any sorrow
I never meant to cause you any pain
I only wanted to one time see you laughing
I only wanted to see you
Laughing in the purple rain


#RIPPrince <3


Great big huggles and much love to you all!
Love Leeta xoxo

Started the week getting Hazzl the goblin rogue set up….
Including spending a few hours trying to find the right transmog set to start farming for her.  


Can I just say that stealth is FREAKING AWESOME! So much better than corpse hopping!


Spent most of the week focusing of Draenor Pathfinder.  As of Thursday evening, I completed the Securing Draenor achievement (the apexis dailies) by purchasing the slips from the garrison vendor, completed the Hand of the Prophet (Ally side’s version of Vol’jin’s Headhunters) and as of Saturday morning, at 60-ish % of Saberstalkers and Order of the Awakened.


I want to thank Urlok from Kargath.  Orc hunter that helped me out of the crazy doing one of the last apexis dailies.  I had aggroed a rare, and then had about fifty bajillion pats pile on.  He stepped up and helped me out, and then we roamed all over the area helping each other out, taking down rares.  I couldn’t thank him beyond an emote (no horde toons on Norgannon), so I wanted to call him out in the podcast!


Ferrousel the goblin….she reached 17 and I logged out.  Went to go register her on WoW Challenges and D’OH!!!  She was flagged! I had equipped a green cloak!  Double D’OH! I did a stupid.  




Playing iron toons mostly feels natural, since that’s how I play a priest anyway.


Duvessae!  Thank you so much!
That’s the Phoenix Hatchling, Chaos Pup, Grumpling, Harbinger of Flame, Leviathian Hatchling, Sunblade Micro Defender, Toxic Wastling, and Wretched Servant.


I’ve installed Rematch and have them queued for leveling, but I’m slow.  The Wretched Servant is the first and it’s only at level 20.  Where do I get the safari hat?


So I restarted Ferrousel as a belf.  At level 5 she jumped off the spires on Bloodmist Isle (but I was smart!  It wasn’t the top level!) and she got Going Down!  Wheee!  And I’ve been catching up with the podcast….the next day I heard the one where Vrishna got the same cheevie.


Also with catching up - I’m ...caught?  It’s caught?  Got teary with Leeta when she and Rogueslayer left, heard Jeppy and Vrishna antagonize each other, laughed when Big G was on, and got a serious case of the OH-NOs! when I heard about Jeppy (and then raced over to donate cause Jeppy.)  Laughed like a madwoman when I heard the “be warned that I’m going to grab people from the chatroom to guest!”  I hadn’t heard that when I offered to be chatroom gal!  Serendipity, right? And Kep always has such good tips….he should do a “Misc Tips” segment!


Mordrain hit level 94 in Goregrond.  She’s spent most of her time leveling via her garrison missions until now.  Now it’s time to get her to 100 as well.


ElvUI Vendor Greys bag button….can be used anywhere???  Never mind...it DELETES the stuff.  :/


Downloaded a screenshot addon since I’m so bad at taking them, but I’m not sure that it’s been taking any.  It’s supposed to take screenshots for things like dings and cheevies, but I can’t find any of the shots.  Otherwise, I’d have more screenshots!

My week
   Dear CAW crew, Fracta here for the first time writing in. I just wanted to say what a pleasure it has been to listen to all of you. Your podcast brings such joy to my daily driving. Of my 73 weekly podcast I listen to yours is one of my most looked forward to. Yes I said 73, with 14 hour days of driving you find you have just a few hours to listen to stuff. If you can believe it, I run out of things to listen to.
   Well let me get to my last week in WOW. A few weeks ago I started an alt army project to farm for mounts and other things. I'm lvling 6 hunters at the same time, not multi boxing. That project is 115 hours of slashed played combined and all 6 hunters reached lvl 50 this week. I'm also working on lvling the last 10 of my battle pets to lvl25. Lvled 3 of them this week, when done I'll have 850 lvl 25 battle pets. I must be insane and I have the title to prove it. Lets see what else? I was checking my mount collection and realized I have 242, 8 short of the next mount achievement. Looking to see what I could farm I realized I have not done the stables in my garrison. Perfect, that will get me 8 more mounts. So I started working my stables. As a mount farmer I can't believe I have never done the stables. I finally broke down and bought a Moose run this week to push me to 243 mounts. That set me back 30k gold. If your looking to buy a Moose run now is the time, prices will start to rise as Legion gets closer and you can't acquire it anymore.
   Well my lovelies have a wonderful week.


Just cant
Sorry for the audio tis week its just been a trying week anyway hopefully heres my audio.

Good day Aprillian - Email submission (23rd April 2016)
Good day all Kep the Gnome Mage (and Kuhok the Goblin Mage) here!
Hope all are well?
My week so far!
I managed to farm all the rare elites in Tannan and get the ‘Jungle Stalker’ achievement - one step closer to the ‘of the jungle’ title. Only got to grind out 4600 more blackfang claws! /yawn. And still hunting Xemirkol for the Predator title.
I decided to pop to the Brawler’s guild (which I had completely forgotten about) and reached rank 4 with both Kep and Kuhok, so not a bad start.
I have finally built my Gladiators Sanctum and have started PVPing in Ashran, its kinda time consuming and I haven’t even really started to Nemesis quests yet.
Mostly though this week has been plagued with computer problems! First I started to loose my sound, which I finally figured out it was my graphics drivers causing the problem - obviously! Then after I sorted that, my graphics started becoming jerky and annoying! After some more messing about I decided it was an addon causing the problem. However trying to figure out which one took a long time! And then the problem of replacement addons started. We are creatures of habbit and like what we like, so finding alternatives became time consuming. I think I have sort of sorted the problems, although I think my anti-virus software is causing problems too - which is just annoying! Don’t you just LOVE windows 10?! /sigh
Only a coupe of tips and info this week.
1. Add some extra (NPC) pets to your garrison by collecting ‘Peckers the Majestic’ found in a cave in Gorgrond (37.6, 68.6). Simply release him from his cage and he will appear wandering around in your garrison.
2. ‘Rooter the Ravenous’ also found in Gorgrond (43.6, 37.8). Simply do the quick quest he gives you and he will also appear wandering in your garrison.
3. In the same cave as Peckers (37.6, 68.6) you will find Ogres which re-spawn super quick, making this ideal for Ogre Waystone grinding. I collected over 400 stones in around 1 hour; over 60 gold hard cash and a bunch of trash and greens.    
See ya! ‘Ill miss you’ - Kep (and Kuhok)
P.S. After previously discussing the Tuskarr fishing net I discovered that the fish that are fished up by your ships count towards the ‘Draenor Angler’ achievement. So you can passively acquire the level 3 fishing blueprint through ship yard missions.

Greetings CAW Crew,


Sorry for a lack of audio this week, it's been a busy one and i've not had a chance to record an audio.


Firstly, sorry for missing sending something through last week, i had forgot to email one through and when i did remember, you were half way through recording.


Secondly, i got back in Wow last week and i've managed a few hours this past week to get in game. Elvyrra, my female undead warrior is in Badlands questing away and is level 50 something. i'm really enjoying playing Her, particularly when dealing with a group of mobs, victory rush is awesome.


So, out of game, my wife was made redunant so money has been a bit tight but we're getting through it. my old Vista machine no longer plays Wow at all so i am having to use a newer laptop we have but i don't have exclusive use of it so my play time has been pretty limited. my android phone died, the battery gave up, so i've had to go back to my old Windows Phone until i can afford an upgrade. A bit of a nightmare but it'll all work out in the end.


i have my monthly R&R this Thursday so that'll be a lot of fun and hopefully i'll get more time in game soon.


i hope you are all well and see you in game.


Cheers,


rigarmorty xx


Update
Greetings CAW Crew,


Just a quick update on my leveling quest.  One more down in classes, one remaining.  Uriel the monk just hit 100 yesterday.  That leaves just warrior to go in classes.  And one more race, the gnome.  Not a lot of progress on leveling, as I am still putting a lot of time into hunting transmogs.  Spending most of my time in Outland, as they have so many sets of beautiful gear.


I did manage to get all the patterns for the green iron set, and completed that for Chrysanthmum.  I have sent in a picture of her in it.


That is all for this week, will send more as I complete my tasks.


Happy Transmog,


Duvessae
