Yep, we had to do it in 2 parts again.
So get Part A -

Episode 221 Part A
Episode 221 Part B

Aprillian, Ashayo, Virshna and Jeppy discuss another week of playing World of Warcraft, Blizzard's great MMORPG. Contest Ongoing send an email to telling us how you play WoW, either as an altaholic or dealing with it in your family life to being placed in a drawing for a month free of WoW or a $10 iTunes Gift Card or an Authenticator.

Juuno's Corner:

Hello Darlings!  Happy Summer Solstice!  I hope everyone's doing GREAT~ I'm a bit frazzled this time because I'm still learning GarageBand and all that...hehehe...sorry bout that =D  I'm sure I'll be good at it SOON worries.  ;)

Hope everyone's doing great in game and out!  And hope to see you in-game soon!

What We've Been Doing:


Forgot to turn in the Get Kraken quest and still was able to get the tooth, turn that in, abandon Get Kraken and get the new daily. I can then go back and get the tooth again, but won't be able to turn it in until the next day.
Opened ticket about authenticator

Last Week
Loving PvP. The hunter makes all the difference, Feels so much like Call of Duty I sometimes yell out medic.
Been gearing up for resilience. 
Brew Dawg gave some excellent advice and I followed it and spent my 4000 honor on

         [Bloodthirsty Gladiator's Chain Helm] and [Bloodthirsty Gladiator's Chain Spaulders]     

Lots of PvP achievements - Lots of Tol Barads and one weird Wintergrasp.

Queued for a heroic (lord knows why!!) and it threw me into Throne of Tides. Totally out of my depth!! Died 3 times and group broke apart at Lady Naz'jar. Felt ill during the whole encounter.

Ran Molten Core with an OP group.

This Week

Transferred over my 83 NELF turned him into a her and a BELF and called her Belfish 

Competed the Hijal quests lines on her in anticipation for Firelands in 4.2

Leveled JC on Haibai got to 450 in one day but couldn't go on as she was only 71

Started leveling her using Wight to run her around. She gets healed like a pet. Bought her the 10% shoulder

Ran through and completed the Nexus - not great XP. Better XP in Icecrown killing elites. The Bombardment is a good area quick spawns lots of elites and safe places for the boostee to stand (82 elite on rested = 2072 There are also some bigger elites) 

Some mass groups of mobs neither give XP or loot and are part of bombing quests

Weird phasing issues though. Can't see each other but can see mobs die.

Wight continues on a steady diet of boosting / dailies / mining and the odd reputation. Switched into marksman and tamed a spider for PVP. Much prefer the lion though.

Got a steelseries wow mouse and a huge mouse mat. Spent nearly a whole day working out the best way to use it.

ICC was EPIC!! BrewDawg was the dogs and a true diamond!

SUMMER FIRE FESTIVAL - the gold the XP *shudder*

Exalted with CoD on Tuesday morning.

HaiBai earning tons of XP from festival

Created RAF orc hunters - got them to 20 - hate wailing caverns!!

EPIC TB - I captured the flag at 0:00:58


Email from Iceflow and Caoboi too late for 220 but read for 221

Hey CAW Crew,

Caoboi and Iceflow here to tell you what we been up to this past week! As you may notice this is Caoboi writing today because guess what? (wait for it....wait for it.....) Iceflow didn't do much WoWing this past week and I've done tons! I guess you see how that works! Well this week Ice and I got our druid/priest(Icebud and Holycao) duo to level 60/61!!! Yes we are in outlands now! That was the highlight of the Iceflow/Caoboi.

So this is the part where I, Caoboi, has been playing like mad the past few days. While Iceflow was playing and beating LA Noire and trying to finish up Dragons Age. I've been playing my Goblin Hunter, Kabooey!! He started out at level 30 on Saturday and is now sitting at level 51!!! This is my highest level hunter ever! I always get them to level 30 and I just stop, I have no idea why but I just do. So I've been working on him and getting him up. I had tons of fun looting/"escorting" Aprillian through some dungeons as she quad boxed her toons and having Epril rip things apart and I had her other 3 following me. Now when I say escorting I'm not talking about being a tour guide or am I? Anyway I know this was too late for the show 220 but this is for 221 and I'm quite sure we may not play much after we get back from Nerdtacular. 

What do you guys think of having some sort of get together on the East Coast!??! That would be cool! Is anyone going to Dragoncon this year?

We love you guys!

Caoboi and Iceflow

PS please forgive any typos/grammatical errors the Caoboi wrote dis email ;-)

One of us, one of us

Hi there dear CAW crew,

I have been listening to your Podcast for many years. Al the way back to old Glanthur’s days. I’ve been playing on the EU servers for the last 5 years and as my old guild (The Dark Side) decided to call it a day, I have decided to move to the US servers to hopefully join you guys in having some fun. I hope to join Clan of Darkness this week, if you will have me?

Aprillian or anyone else, I would like to offer myself up to be referred. (RAF is your friend) I will buy my own game and game time. So please feel free to refer me on this e-mail address.  And don’t worry, you don’t have to level with me ;) So let the rockets flow.

Love you guys and hope to get that referral soon.

And I suppose FOR THE Bunnies???

Your loyal listener

PS I am male. I just like to play female toons. Much better view ;)

Bangobingo Update

Hey CAW crew,

I hope everyone is enjoying their time in and out of game and are doing well. Unfortunately, due to a high OPTEMPO in my job and family lives I have not been able to log in as much as I would have liked. However, there seems to be a break in the storm for the upcoming week where I may be able to spend more time online.

I have been slyly logging into the mobile armory app to catch some of the guild chatter from time to time but am hesitant to contribute much as I have not yet mastered the art of using the on screen keyboard on my iphone. I did bite the bullet and took Aprillian’s advice and transferred my level 74 Rogue, Cptstabbin, from my main server, along with a couple sets of heirlooms. For the short time I have been able to log in I have been leveling my engineering on Bangobingo (up to about 330 now) and playing my new mage, Readytogogo. I haven’t ever played a mage seriously but may start to focus more on her while I eagerly await a guild run in Karazan with my warrior. She is now level 9 and I am thoroughly enjoying one and two shotting at level mobs with all of my heirloom gear.

As always I cannot send an email without a question or two. The first one I have is about addons. I have used Carbonite in the past and have grown accustom to some of the features. The problem is my computer has been running a little slow due to about 48mb of addons for various functions within the game. The main feature I am looking for is the ability to have the quest list on the right side of the screen with an icon for any associated quest items next to it. I found this feature so much easier and more convenient than searching through my bags for the right quest item to use.  Does anyone know of an addon for this feature without having to use a bulky addon like Carbonite?

The second question is a little less direct. If you could be any type of bird, what would you be and why? j/k I’ll have more engaging questions in my next update!

Take care and I look forward to seeing you all in game.


Org Bank/ah

Hey CAW Crew,

I was catching up on an episode from 2 weeks ago, episode 219 I believe (apparently I need to get part 2), and heard you guys talking about the bank in little Thunder Bluff area of Org.  I wasn’t sure if you guys are aware that there are also banks and AH’s in the Troll area and the area by the fishing daily. 

If you know where they are, then you can skip the next section, if not here it is:  For the one by the fishing daily: the AH is the building by the dock with the mailbox out front and the bank is across the lake/river from that with the mailbox and billboard out front.  The other building on the side with the bank is an Inn.  As a blacksmith/jewel crafter I hearth there as it is near the forge and JC daily quest giver.  It is also one of the closest areas to the zone portals (just up the waterfall.)  In the Troll area the bank and AH are on the top floor of a building and in a location where you can access your bank and the AH without moving.  If you need a mailbox you have to go to the entrance of the building for that.  This is where I have my bank alt.  The building is right near the entrance to the troll area, if you were coming from the little Thunder Bluff area.

I’m contemplating trying out a new server, I guess I have to pick horde or alliance or just choose to kill bunnies or not, then I think about joining you guys. J

Hope you guys have a great weekend and I look forward to the next episode.

Hey folks

Hey hey and ho ho!!  I hope you have all had a great week!!   The weather here in Boston has been, to say the least, cruddy and we are all (not so) patiently awaiting the arrival of Summer!!
First, please allow me to apologize for the name snafu on the warlock I wanted to create on COD.  Naming a toon is something that I tend to put a lot of thought into and I seem to have a gift that allows me to come up with alternate spellings for words and make them sound like a name.  For instance. I had and undead rogue for a while and her name was M-o-y-z-t....yes...this is my gift.  I generally don't go for vanity names (Illhealu or Noobeater), and try to come up with something that works with the toon and is something I can life with.  Of course, I can be a filthy foulmouthed houligan, and are one of those people who giggle at things like "cut the cheese", and at times this shown in my name choices.  So, trying to come up with an undead female affliction warlock the name Phyllis popped into my dont need a whole lot of imagination to guess where the name went.  Rest assured the toon has been re-rolled with something a little less toxic...he he har har.
World of Warcast had a guest recently who is the Guild Master of an RP guild on Lightninghoof.  She sounded like a wonderful person, and I have always been interested in RP, so I rolled a toon over there and participated briefly in one of their RP events, and it was a lot of fun.  Its an entirely different way to play the game and, and everyone in the guild is very nice and very much my kind of people, so I think its going to be a wonderful experience!! Out of this I hope to be able to do some creative writing for a back story for the toon as well as some acting as my toon in game. I rolled a male Tauren Druid named Patronus.  Fun Fun!!
Also, I have been doing the Tol Barad dailies on three level 85's and I think I am sick to death of them.  If you have never done them they can be very repetaive, and if you run enough dungeons the gear rewards are not much of an upgrade.  Those three 85's are in various stages of gear, and Light forbid mobs spawn behind one of them, or I find that I'm dead before I know what hit me.  The zone is also noted for stealthed toons ganking away at people who are at low health after fighting something.  I, being the kind, gentle, shmuck that I am...still help kill anything regardless that its already been tapped by another player or weather they are Alli or Horde.
Lastly....a question.  I am wondering if any of you have heard about the MOD "Healers must Die".  It throws an "X" over the head of a healer and the player with the mod can call them out.  I am wondering what you all think about this.  I enjoy healing in BG's and I cant seem to fall one way or the other as to weather or not this is a fair add on.  It has a locked thread on the forums and there seems to be much ado about it.
Well that's it for me. 
Big furry man hugs to Jeppy!!! 
I hope you all have a great day!! 
And Happy Fathers Day!!

this weeks submission (maximumforce) audio

Hey guys at CAW!

Time for this week's audio submission! This week is going to be a bit different than last with a little info on my
in-game progress and also a question for you guys to spark a little bit of discussion! Well here we go!

*Start Audio*

Good afternoon guys, or morning. Or night, whatever it is whenever you are recording this week.. Um yeah. Okay.
This week has been pretty slow and lazy cause I hit a bit of a wall with my dungeon running on my Hunter and a
really slow questline in Desolace on my shaman that had a real "grinding" element to it.

That being said though, I think I mentioned last week that my shaman was level 23 and now I'm proud to say he is
level 34! No wait, sorry, he just dinged 35! Yay! Sorry, probably shouldn't be playing at the same time as doing
the recording, but what are you gonna' do, I have some free time and by god I'm going to use it!

It was a real momentous occasion hitting 30 a day or so ago when I finally got that Totem placement spell I
mentioned last week, "Call of the Elements". Its made the totems a hell of alot more user friendly and has made
levelling a little more fun. Also just knocked over 130 mining and 100 enchanting on him. I have to say, those
quest greens and blues that you can't use aren't always best for vendoring ;)

On the Hunter side of things, I've really not been on him much. I have done a couple of Heroics just to keep the
valor up a little, but with the announcement of patch 4.2 coming up, I've kind of stopped as I'm just thinking of
waiting until it goes live, then cashing in the points for some sweet 359 gear. When the valors and justice combine
I think I will have round about 1800 which means I'll have my trinket I mentioned!

On other news, today I picked up a little gaming addition that honestly has changed my way of playing. I'm not
trying to plug but I got my new Razer Naga mouse with the numberpad on the side. One handed combat ftw! If you
guys haven't seen the mouse yet, I'd honestly have a gander. They are a little pricey but luckily I got mine on a
$50 off sale so I got mine for $100.

Now for my question. With the new Legendary that is coming out with 4.2 and all the classes and specs whining about
whose turn it should be next, it kind of got me thinking that the old Legendaries.. aren't so legendary any more.
When a level 80 quest green can beat the snot out of a 60 or even 70 Legend, then things are a little skewed don't
you think? I believe Blizzard should have a way of scaling these, just like the Heirloom equipment so that all of
these REALLY HARD TO GET items stay legendary and current so every class will have a specific Legendary that is
current! Obviously, people are going to argue that it will destroy current Tier gear and epic content but a way to
combat this would be to make it like a Blue power and a half sort of item, so that current epics are still superior,
but legendaries aren't ridiculously underpowered. Oh, and make the dungeons you obtain them in have "level"
specific legendaries. For example, if you want a legendary that will scale up to level 80 power, make it a Heroic
difficulty for an 80, and if you want it to scale to 85 power, make it Heroic for an 85 and so on. What do you guys

Wow, really gone overtime on this one. I'm off!

This has been Maximumforce for the Horde, for the Razer Naga mouse and for the obsolete Legendaries!

Nice in game mail

Hey CAW crew

I thought you guys would get a kick out of this in game mail.  I bought a bunch of green items to DE from the AH, the next day i received this mail from the seller.  Turns out there are some very nice people out there still :-)

From Reefberry
Letter 3   ----------  June 20, 2011

My letters are usually a few episodes behind the released podcasts so before I go on to the current episode, let me say the 4 hours of episode 219 A and B were great. However, when you start going 6 hours, I’m going to have a podcast receiver chip installed in my head so I can keep up.

Oh man, Juno’s audio about her hunter was awesome, especially the part where her pet spider gives her stares after being resurrected. I love the approach as a diary; I may try that myself for future CAW letters. My favorite skit is still Juno and Matt in the “Ghoul Store”… the hyper-talkative female annoying the sloth like ghoul.

      While I started this new letter, I was listening to CAW, and you were talking about playing with relatives. My major WoW partner is my wife, even though Cataclysm is rough on party questing with all the phasing ---- jeepers even at the lower levels. Warcraft is her first game, not just computer game, her first game, except for the occasional childhood outside games like jump rope and jacks. I knew I had my hands full when we were planning to make some her bags. I collected the required amount of mageweave from her to send off to a tailor. She kept giving me extra mageweave and saying she wanted bigger bags. I explained the next size up requires runecloth. She insisted that doubling the materials should be enough to make the bag bigger.

On Friday nights its myself: two younger brothers (there is a third who doesn’t play Warcraft), a step brother (he hates when I add step), a half brother, my half brother’s step son, a retired uncle (who is currently in upper New York at some large motorcycle riders’ gathering), and several friends of brothers.

Someday, I hope to add my 12 year old grandson. He loves the game and jumps on my computer to play whenever he is at my home. Even his ten year old sister jumps on my wife computer to play WoW, because she must have and do whatever he has and does. One evening, after spending the afternoon with me, his mother called and expressed concern about him going on and on about Orgrimmar. She wanted to know what he was talking about. I explained it to her then she  asked should she be worried. I replied “he’s fine, he will calm down in a day or two, but if he mentions Darnassus send him to his room.”

In closing, I wanted to say as kids we loved vacationing in Rhode Island, the Ocean State. Mom would pack up her own horde, and herd us down to Burlinggame State Park. We have many memories of Scarborough, Misquamicut, and Ninigret. Later as adults, my wife and I enjoyed tours in Newport and browsing The Fantastic Umbrella Factory.

Hi CAW Crew!
Attached is my audio segment for this week. Sorry for the delay in getting this out to you and apologies in advance for some missiam background sound effects, I ran out of time.

Momomoments - Mopvp!?

Hello all,
hope everyone is doing well.

short email from me this week and mainly I want to say a big thank you for Bidcar for helping me through my first Tol Barad dailies and showing me that place is not so bad...or is it!?
When I was grouped with Bidcar the dailies went by pretty smoothly, no deaths that I remember.  However the next time I did the dailies there, all by my moself! it was horrible! I died at least 5 times.  So I suggest grouping up if you are doing the dailies there, it just goes by so much faster.

I also learned the hard way about my justice points and not spending them.  Apparently I forgot to spend them and forgot there was a 4000 cap on the JP's, so I am not sure for how long I have been running instances and not getting any points :( yes sad isnt it.

And I want to say sorry to the guildies tonight when we attempted to run the holiday boss, arune, we wiped at least 5-6 times.  I lost count that is how many times we died without killing him.  I was dpsing and I just need to learn to say no as I know I cannot dps for instances.  I am always a better healer on any of my characters than a dps'er, even my hunter! (just kidding).

Hope everyone is having fun and I will do my best to make the 2nd icc run this week, just not sure when I will be home.

Thank you as always, and for the learn to say no, MO!

Hey CAW Crew,

Tedrah here.

Just dropping a line to say I haven't abandoned you.  I realize I've been kind of absent from CoD lately, but rest assured I haven't been stepping out on you. I've been having a rough patch lately, but hope to be getting back to my WoWing ways pretty quick.

I managed to hear a little of episode 220 live before Ustream  cut out on me. It just doesn't like playing on my iPhone for some reason. But I was able to listen later that evening with the Instacast App so all is well.  I let you guys talk me to sleep and then listened again this morning. I'm so jealous I missed the second night of Naxx.  Sounds like you had an awesome time, which doesn't surprise me as the first night was a blast too.

Huge congrats to Mohalen for winning the MoHog.  It couldn't have gone to a nicer guy. He's just awesome. Another huge grats to Ashayo on his becoming a dragon and on the first try too!

I don't really have much of a "week in WoW" since I've been so scarce.  I did play a little on Gemsprocket.  She's 36 now, leveling slowly, but surely. I'm afraid I've played more Sims 3 than WoW, so I'll just hang my head in shame and shuffle off to the corner.

Hope to see you all in game soon.

This is Tedrah
For the Sims3 - no, wait.
For the Cafe World - that's wrong too.

My First Week in Clan of Darkness!

Hey CAW Crew!

I thought I would drop you a line to tell you about my first week in
the Clan of Darkness.  But first, I would like to thank you for all
that you do for us.  Between all the time you put into this podcast,
and the wonderful guild that you have made available to us all, I just
need to say I really appreciate it!

So... on to my first week!

My time in WoW is somewhat haphazard as the only solid block I
consistently play is about 2 hours early in the morning.  There are
usually only a couple of us on around then, and Jeppy is usually one
of them.  As a result, he ends up performing all the guild leadership
activities then.  I also have made it on a few times in the evenings,
and have really enjoyed the environment in our guild.  Everyone seems
to be such great people, and really willing to help each other out.

Anyway, I moved another toon over, a level 80 Pally named Oakes.  He
happens to be my first toon, but had been neglected for many a moon.
In the past week I have leveled him to 84, and topped his mining at
525.  Unfortunately, his engineering has a couple hundred points to
go.  He has completed the Mt. Hyjal quests, and is now down in Uldum
soaking in some sun!

I also rolled a Druid named Oaksleaf, and have leveled him up to 29.
I haven't done much with Druids before, and I am finding them pretty

I had a great Father's Day this week too!  My kids bought me a Razer
Naga MMO mouse.  This is quite the mouse as it has 17 buttons.  It's
going to take some time to get used to performing actions from my
mouse.  For now, I am leaving my main attacks on the keyboard, and
binding secondary actions to the mouse.

Well that's my first week in Clan of Darkness!  Keep safe out there!

Hi Ctrl Alt Wow crew,
We had so much fun this week in Clan of Darkness and CAW we wanted to send in an audio....

Love your banter...Melchezadeck and Liz Tailor

identity crisis

Tiger here, writing in to give you a warning about creating a druid.  as if multiple toons arn't enouph to create a little bit of an identity crisis, creating a druid can leave one...well, confused.  Poor Shiftytiger learned this when she learned cat form, she found she was in the guild three times, her realitiy cracked and she had to ask the almighty power of the GM to heal her woes.  The result, a painful view (and possible record) of getting booted out of the guild not once, or twice, but three times.  yes painful, this is a guild she worked so hard to get in to.  ironic.  however a happy ending, there is.  once her mind was fixed by the almighty GM she was welcomed back into the guild (albeit to a confused list of guildies) but welcomed in non the less :) oh and to all you who multibox, dancing with yourself may not be a surprise but thanks to the GM i was able to pull it off.

Hi all,

I am writing to say hi again. Hope you are all well and having heaps of fun in-game. I seem to be having trouble getting an invite into the guild as I must be logging in when no-one is on. I have tried joining the chat channel but must be doing it wrong. Hopefully I will be able to catch up to another Aussie on at the same time so I can get an invite.

Have fun

Begging your forgiveness

Hello CAW crew,
 Segwick here. I have not written in for a bit because I have been on "holiday". I am writting in to let you know that when I left COD to go play with my "friends", well that turned out to be a bust in a big way. I should be used to it by now since they always seem to come and go, but this time was rather quick, LOL. So in saying that, I am "Begging for your forgiveness", and would love to come back. Hopefully by the time you read this, I will have already returned and once again can enjoy the wonderful company of all my new guildmates. And please let Jeppy know I have not forgotten about his "purples", :).
Anyway, to catch you all up, the time away was not all lost. I did manage to get my Warrior (Casidy) to 85, as well as my DK (Ardonious) different server, to 85 as well, making it a total of 7 85's to date, but the coolest thing of all, was when I was in Uldum on my Warrior. I had just started the quest line where you have to kill the elementals, and rescue the keepers who are stuck in the sand. I attacked, and killed my first elemental, and targeted my second when my whole screen tented red. I first thought my pc was acting up again, then soon realized, yes its true, Deathwing swooped down and barbequed me. It was awesome, got the achievement and was very pleased, until I realized all the mobs I needed to finish the quest were toasted, and not respawning. Well you cant have your cake and eat it too, but none the less, AWESOME.....
Well thats all for now, and cant wait to once again rejoin the best guild EVER :)

"Defile is unfortunate"

Hail JAVA!

This weekend CoD headed into Ice Crown Citadel and made it all the way to the Frozen Thrown.

We one shot all the bosses except for Gun Ship, Dreamwalker, and Sindragosa.  We two shot all of those and the first attempt at Sindy didn't count.  She bugged and did not reset.  I had to explain the fight while we were in combat.  Even then we got her to 8% on the first try.

Phase 2 of the Litch King is a challenge at any level.  To quote Molsan of the Molsan Method "Defile is unfortunate." I'm planning on changing our strategy a bit and soon we will have a bunch of new Kingslayers.

I think everyone had a good time. Not everyone was there for both nights .  Virinya could not make it Saturday but Miss Molly joined us.  It's hard for me to keep track of everone I'm slowly putting voices, names and toon names together.

We ended Saturday on an up note by tanking down Obsidian Sanctum with 3 drakes up (OS3D) and InMyOwnDreams won the roll for a shiny new Drake.

In other news the tanking helm in ZA finally dropped for my DK.
Rolled a Warrior, Weaur, got her an invite to CoD and leveled her to 20.  Last of the tank classes I don't have at 85.
I tanked a Stonecore on my Pally for Dreams, Kithore, Epril and another guildie I can't remember, sorry.
BrewDawg is joining a more progression oriented raid team.  I'm hoping to get Nefarian Down before 4.2 drops.

(If I have time I'll try to record the following)

I thought I'd share the story of my first kill of the LK.

I raided in Wrath with my hunter.  We had 2 DPS, a healer, and one tank left going into Phase 3.  The other DPS got pulled into Frostmorne, and shortly after a the healer went down  We were very close. I was running for my life from the spirits dodging Defile praying for Kill Shot to come off cool down.  Chimera Shot came off quickly followed by Kill Shot, they both crit and the fight was over.  It took me a second to realize what had happened (NO SPOILERS!) then I jumped up from my computer and shouted YES, waking up the house.

I almost missed the loot roll, the crossbow dropped and I won the roll.  It was one of my greatest moments in WoW.

(End recording)

I hope everyone has a good week.

Brew Dawg
