My smart Alt situation
Hey guys at Control Alt Wow!
I'm new to your podcast, after having listened alot to WoW Insider Show and eventually spread to other good podcasts and I find it especially interesting your focus on the areas of Alts! Before I get started i'll let you know I am a diehard Horde player who will only play the traditional faction which is the Orc faction! This being said I still have 3 characters and the way I have set it up, I have the ability to play what role I want as I have a Heroic Geared 85 Blood Death Knight tank, a Heroic Geared 85 Marksman Hunter DPS (almost able to enter Zandalari Dungeons!!) and my brand spankin' new Orc Shaman (currently level 16) who is destined to be a Healer! Once I have every Justice Point item for my hunter that I want/need, he will be drowning in JP Heirlooms as he already has both guild heirlooms!
I would be interested in knowing what you guys think of this sort of versatile alt setup where I can play whatever I feel like on the night! This being said, my DPS is being focused on because that was my first ever character but funnily enough, not my first 85!
Keep up the good work and the mega podcasts!!
FOR THE HORDE!!!!
Maximumforce (DPS), Nohopeleft (Tanks) and Akamagosh (New Healer)
So i did a bit of checking on this achievement. United Nations. Where the guild needs 55 exalted reputations and as of 4.1 it only counts the one person with your highest number of reps.
Rigarmorty Audio EP 219
Hi Aprillia, Vrishna, Ashayo and Eljeppy!
Dear Control Alt WoW,
The chuckles from the Cntrl Alt WoW hosts, while reading my letter encouraged me to write again. Those laughs are how I feel when listening to the CAW podcasts.
Wow, Verishna, one hour of fishing and 250 skill points, while waiting for the severed arm to drop. Hmmm, wouldn't an arm drop soon after being severed? You are a good candidate to catch Mr. Pinchy, I never had the patients. Yea that was a few episodes ago.
Cataclysm has recaptured some of my initial moments of awesome magic noobiness. During early Cataclysm I went to Auberdine after hearing about its destruction to check it out, and I was worried about flight paths. I left Auberdine and continued down Darkshore’s long main road. Our Friday Night, family group, was excitedly chatting on skype and reporting various cataclysmic changes when I spotted what appeared to be a tornado. I continued jogging down the road feverishly toward the new cataclysmic wonder. Suddenly, “PLOP”, I fell into a cold, swift moving stream, within a rocky crevice. Yup, Blizzard caught me by surprise. That long boring jaunt through Darkshore, which we all took for granted, was broken.
For the tornadoes, NOT, omg, even in New England.
Banks, Mailboxes and Auctions! Oh my!
Hello ctrl-alt-wow crew!
It has been several months since I have dropped you a line. Sorry to
be so quiet out here. I have been really busy in real life. Nothing
serious mind you; just work, family etc. I'm still listening though,
and starting to get back in-game some.
I just thought I would weigh in on the best place for your Horde
banker! I find that any of race specific areas in Orgrimmar are the
best. I currently have mine in the Goblin area. The auction, bank
and mailbox are pretty close. However, I think the Tauren area my
even be better for ease-of-use. It just seems a bit more busy there.
Please stay well, and I will try to pop in more often.
question for Aprillian
Hi CAW crew,
Here is my question for Aprillian in an audio.

Weekly G spot update
Sorry for the lack of chat room attendance and audio submission this week just been busy outside of game and only just had a couple of hours to play I like to thank Locwyn for the invite I think that’s how its spelt but don’t quote me just hope the show go’s well so for the alliance for the horde for the sandgrophers and for having more time to play.
G'day from Tinock
Howdy howdy Aprillian, Varishna, Ashayo, and El Jeppy.
I've been listening from around episode 160ish and I absolutely love Ctrl Alt Wow. I have been thinking about writing in for quite some time, but every time I get any spare time and sit at the computer to start writing....*sings* And then I played wow.
A bit of history about me. I have been playing wow for approx 6.5 years and my original toon was a night elf hunter. Something about the alliance didn't quite sit well with me so I have been playing horde ever since and never looked back. My main was originally a Tauren hunter that raided in vanilla and BC, but after that I made the shift to my Tauren Druid.
I'll skip a long a bit as to not bore you with ALL the details, I now have 6 lvl 85s in the Pants on Head guild on Jubei'thos. All I have to say is without that bunch of Aussies and you guys I would have quit wow quite some time ago. So since I play with those guys and have a blast, I would love to join in with the crazy bunny saving/loop hole finding antics on Earthen Ring.
My goal is to eventually have a max level of every class, but the big hitch in that plan is that I dont have that much time to play as my musical theatre takes up a lot of my spare time. That's right I sing and I dance (sort of)..... Ok I sing and get told where to move. But it is one of my passions and it really makes me so happy to bring joy to all our audiences.
Well because of that I haven't really dome much on wow, but at the end of the month all I have to do is plan for my wedding in April next year, oh and the other necessary evil.... *dramatic music plays* WORK. *scream heard in the background*. Oh. Sound like rigormorty is around =P
Hope you are all well and you really do brighten up my dull work days.
All the best,
Tinock (tea-nock) lvl 85 Druid
Tinnok (tea-nock) lvl 85 mage
Tinnokk (tea-nock) lvl 85 shaman
Tinokk (tea-nock) lvl 85 hunter

Teanok (tea-nock) lvl 55 death knight
Duldian (dull-de-an) lvl 54 priest

Quick Note from BrewDawg,
Pally dinged 85 that makes 4. Trying to decide if I want to level up a new toon or get my hunter geared up for raids & BG's.
Substitute Tanked for <Esprit de Corps> raid team and moved my personal progression to 8 of 12.
Started with a new team <Fear our Whimsy> got 2 bosses down on our first night.
Tanked a bunch of Cata randoms for InMyOwnDreams and other Clan of Darkness Guildies including Stonecore on Heroic, InMyOwnDreams' first Cata heroic!
Tanked a ton ZG/ZA runs with my DK trying to get a helm and shoulders to drop. Saw the helm drop once but a Ret Pally snagged it.
I'll do my best to make the Naxx Raid on Saturday, Safety Dance Time! It would also be good to start running OS3D with guild groups to get folks drakes. And I still want to organize ICC runs.
See y'all in game.

My Week in WoW
Hey CAW Crew, Claypidgin here with my latest WoW update. So far this
week I have gotten my DK to level 71. I am hoping to gain at least a
couple more levels so if we do battlegrounds I can not feel so weak.
Also the higher my level the more I can mine and pick herbs for gold.
Right now I am spending a lot of time in Sholazar Basin gathering
herbs and nodes and running away from mobs who are a lot higher in
level than me. Not so fun but worth the gold.
On my warlock Graylas I have been able to run heroics with guild
members which has been a lot of fun. I was also able to do part of
Karazan and finish Magtherion with the guild which was also a blast.
Finally we got to run Naxx with a bunch of level 80 plus toons. I
found it a lot of fun considering I never finished it and really
wanted to actually see the content. Just don't tell Aprillian it was a
raid. But in all seriousness I thought we did well. We cleared the
Arachnid quarter our only hang-up being half the group being stuck on
the wrong side of the door when the fight started. We all had a laugh
though. Isn't that what really matters? We also ran part of the plague
quarter and got an achievement in there as well.
Other than that, not much as been going on. Although I found out that
a new WoW movie is coming out. I have attached the audio trailer to
this email. Enjoy!

podcast submission for a guild inviteHey CAW crew,
I finally decided to get off my butt and write in. First off a little about myself. I'm ju wingsfan on twitter and have talked to many of you using that method. I have found you all to be very friendly and welcoming to me and i decided to make a toon on earthen ring to play with you all. I am married with one kid and we all play, well, sorta. my wife has not played for a few months and all my kid really does is level my fishing and go around killing critters. I have informed him that he cannot kill any cute critters anymore so he said as long as he can kill snakes he's ok with it. Hes 7 years old.
I have been playing wow since just before bc came out. i have had up to 3 active accounts in the past but really only play on one at the moment. I have 3 level 85's ( rogue, resto shammy, prot/holy pally) on this account as well as several various level alts. On my second account i have 6 level 85's but do not have that account active anymore. My third account really doesn't have anything special on it as its only a vanilla copy. I have raided in bc and WoLK so i have some experience in that but have only gotten up to farming heroics currently as i have gotten burnt out being the GM of a guild. I play wow now to have a good time, I don't need a second job anymore. I have been the GM of several guilds so it will be nice to just play the game once more and not have to deal with the other stuff a gm is responsible for.
I have been listening to the podcast for about 5 months now since i got a ipod touch and once i heard an episode i went back and listened to them all. I get to listen to podcasts at work all day so i listen to many of them. I think i have every one that has been talked about on the show as an itunes subscription. I did put a toon in caw on winter hoof but did not play him a lot. nevik actually invited me and told me he was doing The Overlores. this was back at episode 2 so that tells you about how long i have been listening to the podcast. I think my caw toons name is upullukill not sure though.
Basically all i've been doing recently in game is playing the AH trying to make some gold by doing the obsidian shuffle and buying low priced items and flipping them. I xfered a 69 mage to earthen ring because i didn't like the idea of starting out fresh, the only problem was when i xfered him i forgot to bring gold so i'm working the ah to get some. I have leveled him up to 72 the past couple days so he's ready for kara or bc stuff if you need a mage. Keep up the good work and sorry for rambling so long. This is certainly not an eljeppy size email.
varishna i have a question for you about the bunny killing criteria. If we were to duel and you beat me would you have to gkick yourself?

email for episode 219
Hello CAW crew,
This is Lokwyn, I am writing in to bring up four things: a question, a known bug, a thank you, and a notice. First, the question. As many
of us recently did, I bought myself the winged guardian and I am thoroughly enjoying it. I play a lot of tauren and I that means that at the
risk of looking silly I have to choose mounts based on how well they scale to the character, so I love the mammoth mounts and now the winged guardian.
I have noticed some people however, are selling possibly legitimate codes for gold. The question is about the in game sale of this mount
or other in game items with real life monetary values. I wouldn't do it, but what do you all think about paying gold for the codes for these items? Better yet,
what do you think Blizzard thinks about this?
Second, the known bug. As far as I can tell there are some escort quest NPCs that become attached to players after the quest is turned
in. I came across this with the quest for DEHTA in Borean Tundra called "Khu'nok Will Know," where you escort the orphaned
mammoth calf to the giant mammoth down the road. After finishing the quest and many others, I logged out and back in only to find that
the little calf spawned right beside me. It followed me for about 5 to 10 minutes and then let out a trumpet sound and KEELED OVER
DEAD! It was tragic! This happened every time I logged in or teleported anywhere for days. I took that cute little bugger to countless
PUGs, Dalaran, Orgrimmar, and all across the southern Northrend. If anyone else gets this bug you just have to summon any companion
pet and poof, no more bug.
The thank you mentioned earlier in this wall of text goes out to the whole guild for being awesome. In particular it goes out to Mike Willow for his
mechanical contribution to the guild. Congratulations to Mo, I know he loves the hog since I think he tried to kill Vrishna and Jeppy in
the side car immediately upon getting it.
The notice is about my wonderful girlfriend. Her name is Kat (mine is Sean by the way) and she is moving in with me in a couple weeks,
which I am very excited about. The only downside is that I might see a slight decline in WoW time. The good news is that she has
decided to give WoW a shot some time!
Also, can I get a shout out to my brother Ryan, who has played almost every class if not all to 85. He needs encouragement to come
over to Earthen Ring.
For the HORDE!
Lokwyn, 75 Tauren Pali in Clan of Darkness
(Also, I attached two screenshots: the calf with Garrosh, and motorcycle Mo)
Thank you to Mike Willow and Vrishna and Aprillian and everyone! I really cannot believe I won the raffle for the mohog! I mean the mechano hog in the ER guild raffle. So cool! the coolest thing I have, in game of course, out of game I think I have a few other cool things. :)
