What We've Been Doing:
AprillianAfter listening to Wemb & Ashayo in episode 129 I took the DK Quad back to Blood Furnace 1400xp a kill. Thanks to the POH Hynotoad and Murlock. Got lots of xp & all DK's dinged at least one level
Did cloth CD on Aprillian, felt funny being on her.
Epril did Icy Prism and got a Zul, tried to figure out a good recipe and got frustrated and just picked one. Brought her a new set of Leggings. For some reason she had a pair of leather pants. Probably some quest reward.
Went to do JC daily with Epril & brought Auruk along. Decided to try running those two at work. They got killed in HF trying to kill a dwarf when I got called away. Most likely by that big thumping thing.
Got kicked again doing DAngerously Delicious while dual boxing fishing
AshayoAshayo completed the Raptor mount quest. Bouncy like the troll mount, but still cool and worth the effort.
Been running daily Heroic most days to get Emblem of Triumph.
Running with Kiele as a healer and a pally tank friend of hers. Very fast runs. eg UK - under 20 mins
Finally got Achievement for beating all bosses in Heroic ToC
Spent Conquest emblems on Warlock level 226 chestpeice [Conqueror's Deathbringer Robe]. Nice upgrade.
Plenty of DK levelling this week.
Ashrune hit Northrend with Cowwoman and questing in Borean Tundra. ( Bought Tome of Cold Weather Flying - woot! )

Maui couldn't make it, so I got 2 x Fragment of Val'anyr. submitting ticket to try for transfer (didn't have 2hr timer on them) - successful
- 25 man Trial of the Crusader. Working on Northrend Beasts. Got down Gormok and The Two Jormungar, but didn't have enough left for Icehowl.

Email #A from Ritaheyward
Hey guys, Ritaheyward again
Thanks a ton guys for reading my email and your great answers to my
questions. You really have helped me make some very important decisions
about my character. I am happy to report that during the last week I was
able to jump from 26 to 30. (which, for me, is nearly amazing) I have also
dropped engineering due to my lack of patience and am just going to gather
with my main as I enjoy it more than worrying about what I need to buy to
make the next item. And finally I am just going to rely on my instance
gear instead of wasting money on buying stuff.
To answer your question, Aprillian, yes, even us runners love Hot Pockets.
:) I have a few friends who play WOW that I ran with in college, so we
aren't really that rare of a breed either. I think video games are a great
complement to athletics as we all still need time to sit back and relax.
I would like to give a quick shout out to two of my guild mates, Avagardner
and Hedylamar of The Fishing Vixens. I hope you like their movies as well.
Anyways, thanks for rolling my number Ashayo. I would love an
authenticator, just let me know what I've got to do. You guys are hands
down the most entertaining podcast I've found so keep up the great work.
For the Horde!

Hello Ctrl Alt Wow!
I love your show! It is the best show in the podcasting in community.
I have a few questions for ashayo, what is the best spec for a leveling druid? Which professions would be the most useful? Currently i'm in the twentys with my Druid. Thanks guys.
For the horde!

Hey there intoxicating Aprillian, Tempting Ashayo, and Adorable Glanthur ;)
So i wrote an email to the BOE podcast (out of character for me, i know!) and i've felt guilty for the past 24 hours because i have to send an email to you guys too, otherwise ill feel like im neglecting you guys! and thats unacceptable because i love you all equally! so here i am.. when i should be working on classwork.. emailing the podcasters i love! here goes!
so we've spoken Aprillian about how i just recently hit 80 on my troll shaman. i like her but darned if i dont get pwnt every time i try to pvp. i like my enhancement spec, it fits my personality, but im having a hard time getting her dps where it needs to be. i want to own people dangit! i want to feel the spatter of elven and human blood across my face! i want to remove gnomes and dwarves from their spines! FORTH WITH!!
*ahem* sorry about that.. got a little over excited. anyway. my only real alt, Miba-CHINA ;) stays at around lvl 63 i think.. i was on the other night for the raid on that dragon.. onixia? was that her name? i dont know maybe not.. but i didnt make the achievement because i died, and i asked if i should release and run back in to help in the battle... and SOMEONE.. i dont know who.. i think his name starts w/ a W and ends with a ... EMB... said yes, release! and then i did.. and was locked out until the encounter was over.. YAY! thats ok.. from what i hear we will be doing it again this saturday. i havent been playing as much since i started school.. and every night i go by without logging in i always think dang.. i coulda logged in to do my cooking daily and some ah work at least... but it never ends with that so i just save myself from long nights and inadvertent in class nap time...
so for a little bit of an off topic ill be leaving for Dragon*con in 6 days. the omgwtfholyshnikes has begun and my inner fangirl is waking up from her long slumber. im ready to go squee over patrick stewart, lenoard nemoy, and HOLYCRAP william shatner. not to mention all the 20+hour in depth intricate costumes that people slave over all year. ill be twittering pictures for weeks to come. you guys will HAVE to come next year... you wont be able to resist the temptation of fan girls in bikinis and corsets.
ok i guess thats a big enough wall o' text for today. ill talk to you guys later :)

Hi Aprillian, Glanthur and Ashayo,
Bidkar, undead level 80 mage, Borean Tundra here. This week I didn't play as much as I usually do. Borean Tundra and Auchindoun was down for a long time on Tuesday so I lost that day. Friday was spent updating an old computer I had so I could give it to a friend who lost his computer to a power surge. He can't afford a new computer so I helped him out with what I had.
Anyway, my paladin remains parked at Thrallmar accumulating rested xp. I leveled my warlock up to level 20. I also picked up some heirloom shoulders for her for the 10% xp bonus. I am planning on also getting the chest for her so I can stack the xp even more. I also started a priest this week, so I think I'll just mail the heirloom pieces back and forth between the two of them.
I also started a human female paladin on Runetotem. I thought it might be fun to see what it's like to play on the evil faction. I plan on picking up my druid again in six days when I'll have enough champion seals to buy the heirloom leather shoulders for him. I finally remembered to reserve Mytzlplyk for my goblin when Cataclysm comes out in the far future. Bidkar continues to churn thru dailies to provide gold for everybody.
I recognized my first gold farmers this week too! I was playing cub to the Sons of Hodir bear when I noticed the same two players out by the Jormunger cave and the frozen battleground no matter the time of day. I asked my friend who used to play WOW and he said they were gold farmers. Another noob moment for me!
Thanks for the great podcast!
For the Horde and for Glanthur!
Bidkar and his many alts
