Hi Ladies,

Since you all are female and the host is African-American I'd like your thoughts on WOW's complete lack of diversity.

Most of the females characters in WOW have impossible female bodies.  Furthermore, I can only think of two female heros: Jaina Prowdmoore and Sylvanas Winrunner and both are a little crazy and not painted in the nicest light.  Also there are no Soul Brothers or Sisters in WOW.  What is up with that?   What is this, an episode of "Friends?"

Anyway you can tell that the developers of this game are repressed white geeky males.

Your thoughts?

Hello Ctrl Alt WoW,
Just a quick update of my time spent this week.
Tennish has progressed to 70% of his legendary quest line after completing the Titan Runestone quest. He is now tasked with defeating one of the Celestials in the solo quest. Being a healer, this means keeping Wrathion alive which is easier said than done. I have always played a Holy Priest and never before attempted the Discipline spec but after watching some youtube videos and reading a few guides, it seems I may need to pick it up as a secondary spec and see if it helps.
Clogalis has earned exalted reputation with the August Celestials. Being a rogue his intellect isn’t much to write home about and had confused the August Celestials with The Order of the Cloud Serpent. For some time he was running from npc to npc trying to find out why he couldn’t learn the Cloud Serpent riding skill. The very patient Leeta and Wingy were giving some guidance but to no avail. Sometime later I realized I was yet to reach exalted with the flying cloud thingy travelling circus serpent people. This has also awarded me with the achievement for 55 exalted reputations.
So after a few laps of the tiny Windward Isle, Clogalis had found enough Onyx Eggs to bring his reputation to exalted and can now ride all of the serpent mounts, including the Thundering Onyx Cloud Serpent which drops from Huolon. He has also acquired some new pets; the Spineclaw Crab, the Ashleaf Spriteling and the Jadefire Spirit which all drop from the “rares” on Timeless Isle. Clog’s second transmog set is complete after acquiring the helm from Kil’Jaeden in the Sunwell Plateau.
In real life, today (Saturday 19th July) I took advantage of the nice albeit cold 7°C/44°F weather and headed out to Seacliff beach here in South Australia for some squid fishing from my kayak. The ocean was so smooth it was like being in a lake. It is known that the squid will migrate from our local beaches and head over to the York Peninsula but it’s not impossible to catch them here during the winter. Although I didn’t catch any, I wasn’t disappointed because to me a day in the kayak is still a day in the kayak.
Take care,
Cloggie

Shout Outs & Thank You



Clan of Darkness

Hello Ctrlaltwow Crew
It has never happened that I write to you 2 weeks in a row but I come bearing a gift.
I won the top 25 in Guild activity competition we had last week in the game. I won an Armored Bloodwing and I thank Donnie for the gift. I already have this mount so I thought I would give it to you Ladies to give away.
You might be able to have a competition of your own and get somebody to make you a new Email bumper.
Anyway I love the new line up. You Ladies are awesome. Have a great week.
Sincerely Matahorn
Ps I must thank Donnie for letting me give away my prize.
