What We've Been Doing


Aprillian:


Aprillian got the brazier and loves it. Still needs to get SW flame. Got obsessed with getting shoulders for level 2, well now 3 alt.


Ashayo:

Ashayo - Raid night: Gruul's Lair, Magtheridon, Karazahn all in one night

Asheal and Ashield started the quest lines in Shadow Moon Valley.

Mod for dual boxing: twoboxtoolkit http://www.wowinterface.com/downloads/info7199-TwoBoxToolkit.html

2nd Toon:
/tb master <1st>
/tb sticky

1st Toon:
/target <2nd>
/followme

- Automatically accepts party invite
- Automatically accepts quests (so just share from master)
- Follow warning
- Relay chat messages
- and more!

Greatly reduces the need to switch to the 2nd toon's window!
The sticky follow ( automatically re-follows at end of combat ) is FANTASTIC!


Levelled Mages' Enchanting to 225 in order to DE a bunch of gear laying around.

Mages hit 30. Woot! Wait for patch now?

Started a Shaman and followed around with Ashayo (ungrouped)
Level 1 : 50 exp per kill if Shaman does the damage ; 15 exp if Ashayo assists
Level 10: 100 exp per kill if Shaman does the damage ; 50 exp if Ashayo assists
Experience varies depending on how much damage Ashayo does.

Hey Aprillian and Ashayo its Triaa again finally, I am back from being out of town for a month and I've just recently caught up on all of the episodes and noticed your asking for examples of some useful addons. Aside from mages addons are my specialty so today I thought I would share some of my favorites with you over the next few episodes. The addon I have for today is a mage addon called sheep watch. To put it simply, this addon places a movable bar on your screen that appears when you sheep a target, and simply tells you how much time is remaining on your sheep. Sheep watch is great for raiding, instances, or everyday soloing. Being able to see how long is left on your polymorph is great for timing spells and resheeping. The only disadvantage to this addon is that you have to download it off of curse.com, because it is the only site that has an update version.

On another note I want to thank Ashayo for convincing me to start both a paladin and a shadow priest. I don't have two accounts so I can't see the duel boxing potential of this combination. My pally is 35 and my shadow priest is 28 I am enjoying leveling them both especially since the priest is the one class I had not played past 12 before this. Congrats on Episode 70 and I agree it is funny that the show is dinging before you. Keep up the good work, I hope to see another 70 episodes come from you guys.

If anyone has any questions you can email me at wowwarlock2@gmail.com.

Email #2
After a long stream of bad luck in my World of Warcraft, I have found myself without an account to play on, with none of my 70 toons, and in a struggle to figure out what to do next. The story is to long to go into, but it really put me in a bad position.

I have decided to just give it another crack and start my grind to level 70 again, this time dual boxing. A friend of mine is giving me their second account that they have just sitting idle so that I have an account to call my own, and I am using my brother's for the Dual box toon.

I'm having trouble picking professions, however. I was hoping you could help me.

I am dual boxing two warlocks, and am planning on leveling up to pvp (not raid, though I may raid here and there, but PvP is the focus). It isn't for sure, but it is possible that my brother may quit playing by the time I round 70, so I may end up with one warlock only.

That being said, I'm going to still dual box my way up, and am wondering which profesions should I put on the second lock on teh account that may end up getting dropped. I want to be a miner Jewelcrafter on my main warlock. But I can't seem to pick something on the second. Skinning would be easy, so that is a choice, the other options I was considering was herb/alch but I don't think that would work wel since my method of Dual Boxing will not have me watching my second window of WoW so I won't be able to have track herbs up. I eliminated Tailoring because I didn't seem to justify leveling it for the 70 gear. Any suggestions?

Thanks guys and great podcast!

Some other mods that you may have not discussed:
gatherer - keeps track of everything you find on any alt so you don't have to flip back and forth between mining and herbalism
autoprofitX - sell all grey items with one click. You won't believe how much nicer this is than the default way
RecipeRadar - shows you where you can buy recipes on your minimap
RecipeBook - keeps track of all your known recipes on all alts. When you come across a new recipe in the world, it tells you which alt knows it and which alt will be able to use it if they don't know it but have the skill
Postal/Postman/HandyNotes_Mailboxes - bunch of mailmods. Not sure which allows me to open all emails with one click so I'm using them all. Great time saver if you're doing a lot of AH

Hey guys Auho (Ah hoe) here.

First I would like to say I love the show. I wrote in today to tell you about a mod that i use that helps me keep track of my talent specs on all my different alts. The mod is called talented, ( http://wow.curse.com/downloads/details/9159/ ) with it you can save talent specs so you have a template to follow when you are leveling up. You can either put the talent spec in manually or you can import a spec from blizzards talent calculator. Doing this has helped me keep all my alts straight in my mind. Also I was just wondering how many level 70's does Ashayo have? Keep up the great work and thank you for the podcast.
