Subject: Hello Ctrl Alt WoW
Hello Aprillian, Ashayo and Glanthur.
Just wanted to send a shout out to you. I play both Alliance: Mage(80), Shaman(80) and Horde: Death Knight(80), Hunter(80). Occasionally, when I want to take a break from the high end task of doing dailies and refreshing my stash of herbs... Umm.. For alchemy, of course. I hop onto two recent additions to my character line up. A level 24 Night Elf Rouge and a level 21 Blood Elf Warlock, just so I can re-live some of the old school questing and leveling. Mainly, just wanted to say what a great job you're doing with the show. It makes my long drives, during work, seem so much shorter and enjoyable. Keep up the good work and thanks for the hundred+ episodes of greatness.
For the Horde AND the Alliance.

Email #D from Deaths Keeper
Hello all Deaths Keeper here I'm sad to say my Undead Lock Voohoodoo will soon be deleted... But he will be reborn from my level 70 human Lock(Thesummonerr) and given the same name. Finally the toon I spent over 26 days of game time playing will be put to good uses for the Horde! I'm writing a back story for him and will post it on the AIE wiki. Its sooo hard to delete a toon that I just leveled to 30 but the new Voohoodoo will be more help in kicking some Lich King butt and since Blizzard is finally getting back to caring about warlocks I'm jumping back in with both feet. A big help I've found to get from 70 to 74 is to run the Isle of Quel'Danas dailies and now that BG's give EXP you can go from 74 to 77 running AV in between quest then go right to the Argent Tournament for 77 to 80. Ohh don't put me in the drawing I got my Authenticator already just keep doing great pod casts. To quote Dills Ctrl Alt WOW "I love you"
Email #4 from Bidkar
Greetings Glanthur, Ashayo and Aprillian,
Bidkar the mage here. Bidkar did dailies of course. He also got an epic necklace. He just needs epic head, legs and one trinket now. Still no polar bear mount.
My friend started playing WOW again back on the pvp server. He got the drake from the Oracles and the polar bear mount the next day. Seems fair since he's been trying forever. Blizzard must have decided to give him some welcome back presents. I got him a figure print of his rogue. It was pretty sharp looking, but I won't get a figure print of my mage because I don't like the way the robes look. Just my opinion, others love the robes.
I started a guild for some of my alts. They are now proud members of "We Eat Bachelor Chow". My tabard is blood red with a pic of teeth. I sure wish Blizzard would let us have more that 10 slots like you guys have said. I don't like having alts on 4 different servers. Very messy. I would like to have all my alts in the same guild. I use the guild bank as an armor storehouse.
I leveled my paladin from 65 to 70. He's in Northrend now, flying away. So much easier to quest with the flying. The Tome of Cold Weather Flying is the best 1000g I ever spent. I leveled my warlock a couple of levels, but she's at the point where the game jumps the appropriate level quests all over the place and after questing on a mage, all that flying on the taxi service gets on my last nerve. All the other alts rested since real life has been rather intrusive this week.
I may have a tip, don't know if this is something everybody already knows, it may not even be true, but I'm just putting it out there. I bought a new computer for WOW because I'm a big geek and any reason for a new computer is a good reason. Anyway, I didn't want to go thru the installation torture session, so I just copied the Warcraft folder over to the new computer. WOW doesn't put any hooks into the registry so I don't have to actually install it. When the new patches came out, they wouldn't install though. I googled and apparently this is a problem some people run into when they just copy the WOW folder over. I didn't really care and just copied the patch files over from the old WOW computer and thought "good enough".
A few weeks later, I wanted to play on the PTR realm. After I had installed the program Blizzard put out for the PTR, my WOW on the new computer started to automatically update again. I don't know if this was just a coincidence or if the PTR program installation had anything to do with it.
I had another story, but this email is going on way too long! Have a great week!
For the Horde and for Glanthur!
Bidkar and his many alts
P.S. Don't read this on air, but I think you guys should give Glanthur the murloc. I think it would bring some cheer to his life. I know what it's like to have a parent who is not feeling well and the stress that it brings. A murky would bring a smile to Glanthur's face and I think everybody wins then. If you need donations to substitute for the murloc, I would be glad to donate.

Dear Ctrl Alt WoW Crew,
First things first, thanks for putting together a great podcast. Along with Bind on Equip, yours is one I listen to on Monday mornings to get me through the day at work. While I don’t consider myself a true altaholic, I do have 10 full character slots on the Shadow Council server. Granted, one is a twinked Hunter for WSG, another is a name holder for when the Worgens are available in Cataclysm (I plan to change my main to a Worgen Druid) and a 3rd is a bank alt, the other 7 are characters I play all the time, including 3 level 80s (Paladin tank, Priest healer and Hunter) on the Alliance side.
I’m also an East Coast guy and am local to Aprillian and Glanthur (I live in Massachusetts). As I stated above, I play on the Shadow Council server which is 2 hours behind my local time, and if it weren’t for all the friends I’ve made on that server, there are certainly times I wish I was on an East Coast server for raiding. Wondered what your thoughts were on this subject because I rarely hear anyone discussing it. Sometimes trying to schedule a raid that is amenable to everyone in the guild is tough.
To keep it short, I’m hoping I win one of the next round of prizes. I’m jonesing for a 30 day game card so I can try an experiment. My younger brother quit WoW before Wrath was released and I keep telling him he doesn’t know what he’s missing, but he is strange in that he hated soloing in WoW more than anything and that is what drove him from the game even though he enjoyed it. I think the highest he got a character was to around level 40. I love soloing and want to tempt him back into the game by reactivating his account for 30 days, powerleveling a character to 80 (I just finished 71 – 80 on my Hunter in 6 nights of play, roughly 18 hours, 90% in Alterac Valley) and then turning the account back over to him. Once he has a character that is 80, he can group for dungeons and raids and not have to solo if he doesn’t want to. Even if the temptation doesn’t work, he’d have a character ready for Cataclysm when it is released. He seemed intrigued by the news that Azeroth will be changed.
Fingers crossed and keep up the great work on Ctrl Alt WoW!
