Ctrl Alt WoW Episode 017 The Multi in MMORPG

What’s Going On

Talk about Guilds

First Guild – Everyone rushing to 60 soon fell behind – first taste of drama

Second Guild – One day logged on and it didn’t exist – felt homeless and confused
• Regrouped, got stronger, felt good
• One day we got a message everyone was joining another guild
o Felt betrayed
Decided to make a guild of one – Enjoyed it, especially with dual boxing
Then came The Instance Podcast Invitation, decided to try it out. Found out what it’s like to be in a really good guild

Immersed completely in alea iacta est

Did what a good guild member should do, followed the instructions for the guild. This involves downloading and installing specific Add ons. These included:
• GEM – Guild Event Manager

Being a Good Guild Member takes work and dedication. The transition from being a Guild of one to one of 1000 is amazaing.

Read the forums for both what’s coming up and what’s going on. It’s also a good way to get to know people.

Speak up in chat, even if you don’t have a lot to say. Don’t be afraid to ask for help and to offer it.
• Aprillian is an enchanter on Earthern Ring and I love running up to people with the Guild tag, inspecting them and then offer them the enchants I can do. Ctrlaltwow is a Jewelcrafter and gives his stuff to Aprillian to give away in similar fashion.

What I did this week

Ran Instances for the first time in a long time –

RFC – Ragefire Chasm – 2 times with some great people from the guild
• I love this Instance
Wailing Cavern – another great run. Got some good loot – finished a quest

Went on a raid to Stormwood. It was so much fun. I put pix up at:
It was exhilarating. There were many of us and as we ran up through STV and through Duskwood and then getting clobbered in the first little town there I think it was Raven Hill

Alt Round up

Didn’t do much on my “Main Alts”. Spent most of the time on Earthen Ring

I’ve been playing mostly on Earthern Ring

I transferred two alts to Earthern Ring, mostly helper Alts.
• Prilfire, now known as Iwari, from Lightenhoof. She was sitting there all alone and I never use her. I had gotten her as high as level 37, she’s a Warlock and has Engineering 247 and mining 238.
• Rillia, now known as Veyle, from Baelgun, she’s a level 36 Rogue with Blacksmithing 269 and enchanting 246.

I won’t be playing them much but their skills will come in handy. It was fun to transfer them over. And yes I paid the $25 fee twice, but it was worth it.

So my new main alts are now:
• Aprillian Level 19 Warlock Enchanter and Miner
• Ctrlaltwow Level 16 Blood Elf Hunter
o Because it’s a Role playing server, these two have a story. They are brother and sister sent out into the world and they have a character blog, something that was suggested on the AIE forum to help people roleplay better, and it’s a series of letters home. You can find it at

Singles mentioned above and Jajal, replacement for Ctrlaltwow because of his name. Right now I am trying to level him up to 20, so he can do JC to 225.

Banker Alts
• Trexrar, Gruzilla, Wateva
• Wateva is a Blood Elf and I got her to Dustwallow Marsh from Menethi Harbour. From there she swam to Ratchet. She died a couple of times from these things in the water, but each time she ran back to her body, she’d get a little further out and then was almost at Northwatch and she died again, and ended up at Ratchet graveyard and since she was only a level 5, I let the Angel bring her back to life and got on the boat and went to Booty Bay. So I have my dragon hatchling connection going again. Not as lucrative, I think others are catching on but still making money. I’ll have to find a new money maker.

Favorite Places in WoW

After finishing the Lady Sylvanas quest, I was sent to Sepulcher and Tarren Mills and walking along the road through Silverpine, I forgot how beautiful that area is. I will have to back there and kill stuff.

Did get a nice comment on iTunes, thanks Priesteffer. Run over there and add your own.

Closing Thoughts:

Find a guild that fits, keep looking until you do. Don’t be afraid to /gquit and don’t hesitate to join one because you can always /gquit. If you do join one, jump in feet first.

I lost a good friend Steve Soltys, I just wanted to shout out to him the he will always look good to me and that I miss him more than words can say.

I put up a special presentation yesterday of the Lady Sylvanas’ performance. I’m going to close the show with the full uncommented version of her lovely song.
