Ctrl Alt WoW Episode 213 - I Want My Stinkin' Heirlooms

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.

What We've Been Doing:

Had a ball doing Episode 212.
Did Chillmaw with Vrishna
More Arch with Epril, then decided to do Nogg's ring redo, since I got silver while doing arch

The question mark is where they say Nogg is but he is actually where the arrow is.

Sat morning:
Still reeling from last night's run at Vortex Pennacle
Quint boxing AT, stressful but doable. Auruk was less than one

Leveling cooking on Epril, went to make Darkbrew Lager and found the ingredients were taken out of the game. But Aprillian had sent some to Mi to sell on the AH, but he still had some in his mail. Hmm, maybe I should sell it.

Went to Silvermoon to do the eggs. Still the best place to do it.
Aprillian & Vrishna
Ran Gundrak again. Got a great bow and staff.

Doing a random with Ashayo and Mollysaint ! YEAH ! Holy Cata, Batman ! We got Vortex Pinnacle.

Why didn't we use mass rez ?

By the by, Aprillian and I wenct back to Vortex Pinnacle, it did NOT turn out well !
I HATE getting Sparksprocket's tools. But glad to be questing in Northrend. Broke down and bought fast flying. (Artisan ?) Just dinged 80 in Crystalweb Cavern.
5 honorable kills in Blue Sky Logging. Did you know that it counts as 3 alliance crusaders?

Went thru my daily routine and went to turn in my last 3 quests, 2 in the Hodir area and one in Argent. Had already turned in 25, AAAHHHH ! The sad part was that all the quests in Blu Sky and Venture Bay are only about 8000 xp and the Storm Peaks and Argent are close to 30000 xp. I robbed myself.

Brishna and Treilana in Scarlet Monastery. Dinged SEVEN times in one sitting. Trying to make the most of my last 24 hrs of RAF !

ANOTHER sad RAF story. Jeppy would be so ashamed. The ONLY UPSIDE IS THAT I'LL HAVE TO DO ANOTHER ONE JUST TO GET IT RIGHT ! I had purposefully checked, several times. It very clearly said that I had until 8:24 pm. It's just that it was 8:24 pm GMT. Missed giving levels again !

Can't mail or trade my acct. bound items ! WAHHHHHH ! I opened a ticket yesterday and and it said approx. time remaining 17hr 54. 1 hr later it said the same thing, 17 hr. 54 min. I got annoyed, Aprillian took blizzard's side. This morning it said, approx. time remaining 17 hr 54 min. This is why I'm annoyed. 17:51
- 83/82 in Vash'jr
- Was 2 quests short of achievement - a guildy mentioned QuestHubber. Pretty cool - puts a ! on the map where you missed them.
- Questing in Hyjal - found the quest that you take the mole machine to BRD for the first time. He's near Baron Geddon. Tempted not to hand in for quick cross-continent travel
- Amazed at some of the quest names - "In the rear with the gear"
- Asheal dings 83
- Finished Hyjal - Ashayo 84.
- Hit revered with Hyjal - no cloth rewards at all!

- Lost City heroic - dps worse than Blank as tank!
- Finally enough Hellscream Reach commendation to buy the exalted dps trinket.
- Vortex Pinnacle with Molly/April/Vrishna
- Cho'gall attempts
- Post patch Raid ; Magmaw down. ODS seems bugged. Headed to BoT instead ; downed Halfus easy enough. Headed off to Baradin Hold and downed Argaloth in record time. (Bear tank dps through the roof!)
- Bought new ring with valor points [Twinemd Band of Flowers]
- Bought valor boots (BOE) [Fading Violet Sandals] for 8000g
- Quest line in STV for ZG - got panther cub

- Doing Tol Barad dailies. Horde got control during the day opening up 2 more dailies, which was all I needed to get exalted. Couldn't hand the 2nd one because I'd already done 25.
- Exalted! Now to get 105 tokens :/

Stopped just blindly DE'ing green BOE's - they are i278 and usable at level 77-78 ; which is going to be a massive upgrade for just about any alt I'm levelling.

- Questing with Mollyshot in Hyjal
- Mined and didn't get skill up - hadn't trained. Neither had Molly - we hearthed - I ended up in Dalaran :/
- VERY few holy pally quest rewards

Noble Garden
- 3 tux pants, dress, 2 x rabbits foot, 3 x blossoming branch
- Have group, will travel by any AIE in ungoro
- Got Tux Shirt and [Sunday's Finest] in what was supposed to be the last egg
- Can't find a female dwarf. Got most others in Tol Barad. Finally!

- Character sheet changed - slightly different equipment set manager
- Rez using raid frames, rather than finding corpse for someone who released - YAY
- Interrupts now always hit - yay for mind freeze
- DK's can now battle rez - Raise Ally
- Druid - changed Efflorescence spell effect
- Hunters pets now come up to their level when taming, not 3 below
- No need to feed pets for happiness ; feeding now heals them
- Pets summon with 100 focus, not 0 - great for mount/dismount constantly
- Warlocks have battlerez - soulstone
- Dungeon finder attempts to avoid putting same dps armor classes together
- Optimize network for speed - uses more bandwidth




Aprillian, you have been naggin... i mean asking for voicemails lately so i thought i make one.....
You never told me it was so hard!

it took me 7 takes and im still not satisfied.

Please dont mind my dutch accent.
English is not my native language.
Ive been making fun of the addictedcast and BoE with dutch words like Gorinchem and Roelofsarendsveen, but i kinda suck at your language too.

anyway, before this becomes an el jeppy sized email, here is the audio.

Hello CAW Crew
Dearest CAW Crew,
Hello my name is Leeta Lvl 85 Undead Warlock - and I am a Altaholic!
It feels so good to say that :) but truth be told im a WoWaholic.
I have been listening to your podcast for quite some time now and felt
the need to send you some mail to say your podcast always makes me
smile, makes me laugh and brightens my day :) so thank you.
Just catching up on some episodes while traveling to work. Today is a
beautiful sunny Queensland day and seems a shame to have to go to work
- mind you if I was at home I'd be playin WoW inside haha.
Just a lil about me - my lock is my main toon however I have various
alts including a priest, hunter, death knight, rogue, paladin & more.
My newest toon is a lil Goblin warrior who hit Lvl 60 last nite. I'm
having so much fun with her as I'm Prot spec & I'm tanking. My guild -
Dark Shadow Elites - is currently doin Gobby Alts & everyone is really
getting into it & we're having so much fun doing dungeons & some PVP.
Anyway just wanted to drop you all a line & say again I love listening
to you guys & I look forward to listening to many many more :)
Take care
Hugs Leeta
Dark Shadow Elites - Dreadmaul
Hi CoD,

I would like to get an invite to the Clan of Darkness for my level 80 DK, Dryde. And possibly another toon that I haven't made yet. I currently only have my DK and my Goblin priest, Qwisp on Earthen Ring and currently Qwisp is in AIE. I think I would like to keep Qwisp there for now but I'm interested in levelling my DK to 85 and it would be nice to run with you guys as well.

Is there a channel that I should join on Earthen Ring to get an invite.



Kithores court submission April 27
We hope everyone has had a good week, in game and out. Sorry for some of the audio, but kithore is still trying to get used to Audacity. That, and he keeps trying to find a way to hang fuzzy dice on his microphone!

kithore and inmyowndreams
Dragonblight and Earthen Ring

In case there is a question on the cast of characters...

Willing participants are as follows:
Kithore as the Judge
Claypidgin as the Prosecutor and Mastermind/Author of the trial submission (Brilliant!)
Junno as the Bailiff
InMyOwnDreams as the Defense Lawyer

Unwilling participants are:

Aprillian as a witness for the Prosecution in exchange for immunity
Vrishna as the Defendant

We hope you all enjoyed it, and huge Kudos to Claypidgin for dreaming up this farce.

Item enhancements

Hey CAW crew,

As always thanks for all you do for the community. It is great to have such a fun and friendly group of people to share my favorite game. I wanted to get your thoughts on a topic that has crossed my mind recently.

My main has collected several items that greatly aid in travel (Argent Tabard, Kririn Tor ring, Stormwind cape, etc.) and since the portals in Dalaran and Shat are gone these items are getting more and more use. However, it is fairly tedious to constantly switch them out whenever I need to travel and I always fear I may forget to change them with my main gear.

I have thought about making a macro but an unsure how I could do it or if it is even possible. Do you think blizzard would ever consider making these on use functions additions to the item slot rather than on a specific item? Or maybe included in future item enhancements like spellthread or leg armor.



Derkdiggler, lvl 85 Human Rogue
The Darkness calls

Greetings all!

I've just gotten back to playing in the last week or so, and I'm just catching up on my podcasts, after taking a bit of time off.

My Mother had passed away January 11, and between all that brought up for me, and the job of getting her apartment cleaned out, January and February were a total write-off. My apartment now resembles that show about Hoarders. Insanity!

I had moved back to the same city as my Mom about 6 1/2 years ago, and got to spend that time helping her out (her health was in decline for a long time.) With some time, I've realized just how grateful I am for having had the chance to do some things for her, as she had certainly done enough for me over the years. I even got to cook Christmas dinner for her (my first ever turkey dinner, even though I'm 54!) :)

Sorry about your loss Aprillian and Vrishna. I look forward to finding you on ER! I've rolled a couple of new toons there- if you stick it out, maybe I'll transfer some over as well!

Love the show (as always)!

Madhenry- new DK on ER
And more other alts than I can remember!

the ramblings of a sleepy bit of fluff


hey all,

as promised after breaking my audio submission cherry with metatalks i've
worked on my mic skills and recorded a lil submission for you.

its recorded at 3.30am which in retrospect (a whole 7 minutes of
retrospect) probably wasn't the greatest idea, but hopefully ive managed
to string together the odd complete sentence. enjoy!


Greetings from BrewDawg

Greeting from Brew Dawg, I hope all are well.

It's been a rough couple of weeks in game. My raid team has imploded but we hope to pull together the core members and rebuild.

While re-grouping we took a break and ran Ulduar hard modes to get everyone drakes. What a beautiful instance. It shows what Blizzard can do and how much ToC and Icecrown were major steps backwards. I think it's why so many "hard core" players have left and/or got bored with WoW. You go from the amazing raid that is Ulduar to grinding through ToC and Icecrown for over a year.

My Paladin hit 82 and I got my DK up to 81. I've finally got my head around DK tanking and I like it. The DK will probably hit 85 before the Pally as I only play the Pally with a set group of friends. If I ever get around to leveling my warrior I'll have a tank of each class.

"Shh we're Hunting Wabbits" is the name of my Paladin's the instance leveling group, apologies to Virshna. We were one short last week but we managed to 4-man the ICC 5-mans. The Lich King was on right on our heels but we managed to escape with seconds to spare. Our toons were level 78 to 80 at the time. This week we cleared Black Rock Caverns and Thrown of Tides.

In general I don't RP in game but I have back stories for all my toons. For example my DK Dureau (Du-roe) is a disgraced paladin who participated in the destruction on his family home and is now working to atone for the sins committed while serving the Lich King. It may fit his story better to be a member of a Clan of Darkness.....

I saw Ms. Aprillian's toons at the Argent Tournament over the weekend while doing the starting quest on Dureau & whispered a quick hello.

I'll end my wall of text. When y'all are ready to venture into the Cata 5-mans I'll be happy to tank a few to help you learn them.


Ep213 Submission

I might just have to purposely not put together a submission for a week or two otherwise you might come to expect something from me every week! Okay, I'm kidding of course. Time permitting I'll try to record something for you guys ... annnnnd Aprillian. Enjoy!

Sorry for the poor quality of the recording in my defense I am doing a 120 km/h at the time turns out driving and recording is hard

Shout Outs & Thank You


We decided to copy those fine folks at BOE and ask: How do you feel about gchat on the Mobile Armory? Would you use it?


Hello everyone,
hope everyone is doing well and awake when you do your early midweek podcast :)

For my wow time the past week, well I have actually had some decent wow playing time. Just a couple of days ago I did take Monday off from work and pretty much played all the wow I could. I know I probably could have squeezed a few more minutes but you know what Blizz says, everything in moderation. I was able to level my druid Morfin on the ER server in THE CoD guild, the official unofficial Horde guild of the CAW crew (even if Nevik doesnt want to believe it).
I was able to level him from level 82 to 84 by questing and trying to get some instances completed. I say trying because I queued up for dungeons as healer and dps and waited a good 15 min on average to get in. Dungeons get you great xp especially if you have rested xp however I do like the mix of questing mixed in there. I was able to level my pally Molypolly professions and some other characters professions too.

I have been having a hard time leveling cooking on a few characters, especially from 250 to 300. Some of the items needed have low drop rates or I just cant find them.

I have not had a chance to play the couple days after Monday but I will get in and get my druid to 85 and hopefully get a few guild runs in on whatever level possible. We will get some great guild leveling once we can do some guild instance runs.

I need to get to bed now, so I will say goodbye and thank you for your podcasting and to everyone else for their work.

Take care,

For the sleep,

Ctrl Alt WoW Episode 212 - BBD in the House

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.

What We've Been Doing:

Trying to level JC on Epril. Getting ore to prospect. On Wed, 43g stack, on Thu 69g

Sunday, worked on Guild website. Kudos to Inmyowndreams, Caoboi and Iceflow.

Monday, scared of Vrishna being angry about returned mats. Trying hard to use them. Should I make Mooncloth bags? Oooh really need to get that other bag recipe.

Following streets in Dal while flying, LOL

Realized Epril was fastly approaching 85, 63%. Figured she should work on Arch. Solve one before I realized she was only at 32! Glad fragments don't take bag space. Epril's Flying is slow. Got to play attention when digging 28k per dig

Leveled Aprillian's Tailoring to 477, completed the Deathsilk set and enchanted it for her. Best she's going to get I think.

Aprillian & Vrishna
Finally got through Gundrak with Virinya tanking. It was a great way to learn the dungeon.

AT with Epril, Vrinya, Tiia, Astarå and Aurak
Clan of Darkness to level 2.25.
Accidentally got to 375 in Archaeology ! Aprillian mentioned something about a digsite so I just went into my backpack to check how many pieces I had. Only one race had enough to assemble an artifact. I clicked on it and, "poof", Master in Archaeology ! It was a nice surprise. Dig sites opened all over Northrend !
Vrishna dinged 79. Running Argent Tourney as an aspirant for Silvermoon and will finish Silvermoon during this podcast!

Narinya healed for a guild run through Hellfire Ramparts. I have guildies ! Thank you Inmyowndreams, Tedrah, Claypidgin and Glig ! We ran it together twice until I had to leave. This was through the random dungeon finder so we got our satchels of helpful goods !

Actually have over 10k in the bank for the first time. So many dailies, so much gold !

I may have played it is all very fuzzy.
Death Knight Tanks


I wanted to write regarding the secondary stat for DK tanks. Mastery is very strong for DK's, as it is for the other tanks. With the change to blood shield (4.0.6?) where the blood shield stacks duration rather than over-writing the previous shield it's debatable the best secondary stat, and possibly worthy of gemming for. The general target for heroics is a mastery of 16. I've gemmed my DK tank towards mastery rather than stamina as 135hp unbuffed feels comfortable with all the self healing, and the extra mastery really evens out the damage similar to the way block does. Not sure if you're using it, but the Lichborne/death coil self heal works wonderfully, kinda like a lay on hands with a 3(?) minute cooldown. Just my two cents, no theory crafting backing me up.

Curme - 85 prot warrior
Anarion - 85 blood DK
Curufin - 85 prot pally
Uldor - 85 holy/shadow priest
Tuwanek - 85 Boomkin

And a few others....

Ctrl Alt WoW

CAW crew
My name is Vern, I doubt anybody remembers me but I wrote in a couple times to this show and Ctrl Alt Trek. I have not written the show in over a year but I always look forward to listening each week. It took me awhile to write this so I hope I don't ramble too much.

I would like to tell everyone a little about me. I am a 36 year old male I live by myself in New Jersey. I have a cat and I collect Transformers. Most of my entertainment comes from podcast, I listen all day at work. I like a lot of the tech shows from and of course a lot of WoW podcasts too. I started playing WoW around the time the sunwell patch came out. It took me a long time to level up, I hit 68 the day that Wrath of the Lich King came out. I had made some friends and joined a small guild on the way. A little while after WotLK came out some of us formed a guild with a goal of doing raids. We did it for fun and we were never doing cutting edge raids but in the end we killed the Lich King before Cataclysm came out. Sometime after we hit 85 people started fading away. Lately I been trying to get more exalted reps and hunting down some rare pets and mounts. I have a pally in Pants on Head that I have been trying to work on also. I been leveling him for over a year and he's only 74. I won't do randoms I run into too much trouble. I am a little shy so I really don't know anyone there.

Inspired by the show I dual boxed a gnome warlock and a dwarf shaman. I was doing refer a friend to get a rocket but I only got them to 43. The whole thing only cost me 20 bucks because I bought a copy of WoW for 5 bucks around the holidays. I didn't use any add-ons just 2 monitors and some macros. I recently ran out of time on that account but I am planning on doing more dual boxing.

I like when you look up Ashayo’s character in the armory and pretend you know what you’re talking about. This really cracks me up, I always imagine you donning a small pair of spectacles kind of like Homer when he tries to be smart.

I use a G11 Logitech keyboard , Ashayo said he had his G15 since they came out and it has 18 G buttons, this is the first version of the G15 it latter came out with less buttons that’s the one Eljeppy probably had.

I was really excited to hear you were letting people join your guild. I was in the STO guild but we all know what happened there. The last few shows were filled with people telling their stories of joining the guild and having fun meeting people. I made a goblin priest on ER but got turned down when I tried to get an invite. I didn’t want to ask again till I wrote in. My internet was out the last 2 nights then show 211 came out and I couldn’t send you this email until I listened. I still would like to be in the guild if you would let me. I promise I will write in with my experience of rolling a goblin for the first time.

P.S. Don’t put me in the contest if you are still doing that

Remember me?

Has it really been almost two months since I wrote in? I keep meaning to write, but life seems to keep getting in the way. Work. Planning to move. Mom visiting. Kids. I’ve even gotten behind on my podcasts, but made a good dent in 210 during my 8 mile run (or should I say, “jog”) this week. Maybe I’ll get back on track after my mom goes back home and my schedule returns to normal.
My 85s seem to be languishing. I finally completed the argent aspirant quests on my priest and would like to get heirloom gear for my alts on his new realm, but I’m having trouble motivating myself to grind through it all a THIRD time. Instead, I’ve been busy trying to level toons to catch up with my wife’s refer-a-friend gifted alts and leveling toons with my sons. I’m now having a lot of fun leveling a couple warriors. I used to hate them. (I had one that never got past 10 or 11 in almost two years. He finally got deleted to make room for alts to play with my family.) I’ve hit outlands again with a couple toons and found that it’s been long enough since I played through there that it is actually fun and interesting to read the quests again. I’ve not played horde in a long time (my first toon was horde on a pvp realm), but I’m thinking of joining you all on Earthen Ring. My youngest son even made a belf hunter for me to use. If I play her, this will be my first female toon—Rosee.
Off to grind some rep or some levels.

For the family! For the Alliance! For the horde?
By the way, don't enter me in the contest.

Hi CAW crew,

I would like to introduce myself, my name is Mystic, and I too am an alt-aholic.

I have been listening to your fine podcast for the last 12 months, and started playing wow around 2 years now. I've never written in until today. Why is that - I hear you say? Well, I suppose I have always been a passive warcraft player, someone who doesn't have enough hours in the day to raid, or do long dungeons, or grind away for mats that take days and days to gather.

As my time is limited, due to family, career and eating (and sleeping) I find that most of the people on my server don't understand, and as such, I end up roaming around the great lands of Azeroth solo-ing quests, or improving my professions. I often thought I was in the minority, that everyone in this world of ours had to contribute 25 hours a day to play, and carry the most high-end of gear.

But it wasn't until I came across your podcast, and others like it, that I realised that this was not the case. There are others out there that don't have the time, nor the experience to have done it all, and so it's probably true to say that I look forward to listening to you all every week, because it's not always about the game, it's also about the community, and the reasons for my admiration of you all can be summed up in some of the comments that were made on episode 210, around community, and around the sad loss of one of Aprilian's best friends. Never have I been so moved by a podcast (in an emotional way) than that one episode, especially as I am the proud owner of a brand new pup myself.

So, with all that in mind, if it is ok by all of the CAW crew, I would like to start submitting emails on a semi-regular basis to let you know what I have been doing in-game, and hopefully one day I can also hope to be part of your fine circle of friends.

Your avid listener

PS. I know it's not so unusual anymore in your team, but I am from down under as well....
PPS. Go the Blues !!!!
What have we here?

Hey all. I hope all has been well! Sorry I have not been in touch for a few weeks. I lost my job about a week and half ago (not the worst thing in the world as I hated it), and have been so busy doing nothing, I havnt been able to find the time to email. Financially I will be okay for a while, and may even be able to take some of the summer off, something I have not been able to do for a very long time. I have, however, been spending a lot of this free time playing WOW. Despite this I have yet still to level any of my professions or, clear one heroic all the way through. I have to level 85's, a priest and a hunter, and try as I might, groups fall apart before the end or, I come in just before or at the last boss.....never mind also that the only two dungeons (heroic or not) I ever seem to get in are The Lost City of Tol'vir or the Halls of Origination.

I have also been doing a lot of PVP. I have to say that it is my favorite part of WOW. Its not something by all rights that I should like as I have never been an "IN YOUR FACE", kind of competitor, but I am not lieing when I tell you that I get seriously jazzed when I fell an opponent, cap a node, or return the flag. My guilds hope of doing rated battle grounds has not yet come to pass as we are a small guild and there is just not enough interest, and have yet to meet anyone in game that we are comfortable enough to play with.

Anywho, I still haven't uploaded Audacity to my new computer so no audio submissions as of yet.........I hope you all have a wonderful week!!


Great Podcast. Goings ons and Ideas for a CAW dungeon.

Dear Ctrl+Alt+Wow Crew:

Great to keep hearing all the podcasts week after week. My wife and I sent you an E-mail in December and we won the Moonkin pet, so thanks for that. We like to take him out in pugs when a DPS dies unnecessarily and dance with it mockingly. We usually run a tank and healer combo. The last time we were leveling our gnomes Mysterios and Frottola but have since created humans, me a paladin and my wife a hunter. We got them up to level 60 in about two months, 60 is our level cap until we expand to The Burning Crusade. We recently started a new team with my wife being a priest and myself being a warrior, talk about hard to hold agro at low level dungeons with everyone running with BOA's.

I was thinking of the perfect dungeon with CAW themed bosses.

Aprillian: Starts off with just one gnome and when that gnome is at 5% life another random character "logs in" and takes the place of the original boss. This continues about twenty times until Aprillian has no more alts left. The good thing about the Aprillian boss is that she drops a flying mount that can hold 5 people!

Virishna: A boss that has pocket healers that are un-killable, since he is so used to being a pocket healer. Also bunnies flow from him as adds and you have to kill hundreds and hundreds of bunnies. Each time you kill a bunny Virishna becomes even more enraged. He drops an invisible pooka (rabbit) pet called Harvey.

El Jeppy: A boss that turns into 10 gnomes and they dance and frolic around you all while shooting fireballs at you. They all do the same spell at the same time and frequently break out into laughter which fears the entire group into lava. He drops a trinket which summons 10 miniature gnomes which do your bidding.

Ashayo: The most deadly and final boss, that will take his target down to 1% health and then target the next person that has the highest health. He then summons drakes to swoop people up and then drops them from a great height. Ashayo drops an enchant that stacks that automatically adds 100 toward gear score.

Keep up the great work. All your advice and stories keep us having fun in WOW even though we only have original wow. Our level 60 humans, Briide and Groome signing out from the Eitrigg Server.

WoW on sale at Target

I just wanted to pass the word that my local target has vanilla WoW, and BC on sale for $10. WotLK is $20 and Cata is on sale too but I don't remember the price. I think that the vanilla/BC battle chest is also $20.

So if you are looking to start up another RaF, no might be the time to stop by your local Target. I don't think that they are listed in the ad and I looked at and the games are not on sale there. So it must just be a brick and mortar sale.

Have fun and happy WoWing.

Brian(aka. Qwisp, Earthen Ring)

Hallo Ctrl Alt WoW crew,

Bidkar, level 31 mage, Earthen Ring server here.

Ashcroft, human warlock and Jehi, blood elf paladin are both exalted with their respective Tol Barad factions. I was doing four toons in Tol Barad, but couldn't take it anymore. Four times Tol Barad is the pathway to insanity. I do like the quests out there, but four times a day, not so much.

I'm still trying to find a path I like in the new 1 to 60 questing on the Horde side. I like the Alliance side leveling, but I'm not caring for the Horde side. I know it's me since mostly everybody else likes it. I'm finding the Eastern Kingdoms to be much better for me now. I liked and disliked the storyline in Silverpines.

I think Blizzard has seemingly ruined Sylvanas and tarnished her image. Previously, she was a noble character overcoming the circumstances she was forced into by Arthas. I don't think it is in character for her attack Gilneas and displace the Gilneans from their home. She was tortured and killed by Arthas because as a Ranger she fought so bravely to defend Silvermoon from him. I do not think Sylvanas essentially doing the same thing to the Gilneans to be in keeping with her character. I think the quest with the Lady's Necklace shows that despite what she pretends to, she remembers and mourns for her former life. Maybe there will be more to the story?

I have a funny (to me anyway) story concerning my priest Sagrado. He's 82 now, but I had a hankering to get him the talbuk mount, so I ran him out to Nagrand to farm rep for the mounts. While I was out there, I noticed someone was trying to take control of Halaa, so I went over to help him. It turns out he was helping his Alliance friend get battle tokens so she could buy the war talbuk. I guess I helped her by dying several times. She was a 85 hunter and I'm not very good on the priest, that I will freely admit. I annoyed here by bombing her repeatedly. It was so much fun! Another Alliance guy came by and started messing with us. She explained to him what she was trying to do, but apparently he wanted to be uncooperative. The other guy who was there asked for help, but the only answer he got was "Go level" from a toon named Wettowel. I, of course, could not resist telling him not to be a wet towel. He then called me an idiot and I said "True as that might be, at least I'm not a towel", called me an idiot again and I said "You're a towel" referring in my mind back to the South Park episode dealing with Towelie. This cracked me up. Anyway Wettowel came and helped us deal with the guy. Happy ending!

I was a little naughty too. I need to be honest and tell you that I cannot resist attacking a flagged hunter. It would not matter if I was level one and the hunter was level 85. I would hop on that like a bunny would hop another bunny. I think I get it from leveling a mage on a pvp server. The only toon I couldn't kill is a hunter. Just cannot do it. So I think my frustration manifests in the attacking of any hunter anytime. Anyway, I was flying my warlock out in Hellfire Pennisula to mine up some ore. I was flying along when I came upon this hunter flying way up high flagged from pvp. I was 85 and she was 62 or something like that, so it was completely inappropriate for me to gank her. So I did gank her. It was a HUNTER! I had to do it. I think she thought by being up so high she was safe. So I dotted her up while falling. I barely survived, but I guess she wasn't quite high enough. I watched her health drop rapidly then watched her fall rapidly. I know it was wrong,but it felt so right.

That's all for right now. Have a great week and thanks for everything. You folks are terrific!

FOR THE HORDE and for the alliance!

Hi Aprillian, Virshna, Eljeppy and Ashayo,

Attached is my little audio for Episode 212! As your recording on my lunch hour I should be able to pop-in for the show live stream for atleast an hour :)



Hope you all have a great week in game and out!

Ep212 submission

Newborns definitely make it hard to get these things done. Sure, I might be able to record a nice 10 minute segment, but edit it? Yah, that's where the difficulty presents itself.

Anyhoo, Lil' Deathy allowed me to finish my submission up and I was even able to include some bloopers at the end ^^; Hope you enjoy ...

Shout Outs & Thank You
Momomoments - Clan of people looking to have fun playing and interacting

Hello all,
hope everyone is doing well.
I am sorry to miss emailing for the last 2 shows. I have a plan to make sure I get my emails in as soon as I see the twitter updates of the new episodes (hope its a good moplan).
First I would like to thank you all and the guildies on Earthen Ring server for inviting some of my characters in your Clan of Darkness guild. Some of you were on when I joined so thank you again. I have about 6 characters on each account on that server and so far have 2 lowbies in there.
I have also moved over my 82 druid with a previous name of Moid to the server and in the guild now. I had to change his name as who new that ER has a giant population! For a long time of thinking and asking for suggestions I went with Morfin. I know its not that exciting of a name but really could not think of anything else. He is a tauren Resto and mochicken spec and yes I am available for your healing needs (when available of course :).
I also moved over a pally from feathermoon server was names Atoosa but had to change her name too (who new there are other persians playing this game of ours, Atoosa is an ancient persian name). I was able to name her fairly quickly to Molypolly. She is a Bloodelf holy prot spec at level 63.
I feel good as I was able to help a couple of guildies, Inmyowndreams, and Glig by running them through Ramparts. I am looking forward to running more dungeons with guildies and also level.
With my druid destroying things I was able to run my pally through ramparts and bloodfurnace for a couple of rounds. My first goal is to level Molypolly's professions as she is from one of my raf's.
She has skinning up to 375 and I am working on her mining which is low. I would like to also level her cookings too but it seems for some reason cooking always takes me forever. I also want to level mining/cooking along with archeology at the same time but that also is looking to be a challenge. Have any of you leveled multiple professions at the same time?
I also have another question, with the Outlands or when you have a character at level 60 going through the Outlands, where do you set your hearth?
My pally is currently making Thrallmal her home but I dont know if it makes sense to make Org. her home. I wish Shattrath still had ports, that would make things so much easier I think.
In my travels across Azeroth I am also finding some new things they have changed in Cataclysm like I did not know there was a portal in Grom Gol to Gnomergon instance!
I also attempted to tank on my pally Molypolly 2 random 60 instances with deathpidgon and we finished, to my surprise as it was my first time tanking on a pally for a long while. I dont like to tank just like many for the same reasons, the random people that join the group and just make the experience not so much fun. The 2 dungeons i tanked were not that bad but I know I was going slow, much slower than the other people's pace. To add to that my pally is in some cloth gear as I have lost my plate heirloom gear and no, I do not have a reply from blizz yet to my ticket. I am hoping after the patch hits perhaps, but im not holding my breath.
Well that is enough for me,
Thank you again for the invites and looking forward to some guild instance runs soon hopefully

For the Clan of Darkness!

Ctrl Alt WoW Episode 211 - Guild Meeting

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.

From Juuno

Hello darlings! Shoot...I just checked twitter and saw that you're recording tonight! I won't have time to get an audio done, and I won't be home to join in all the fun... <=( Today is April 12th...which means it's the 2 year anniversary of my Dad's we have some stuff planned for tonight. I'm so sorry I'm missing you all AGAIN... I'm attaching the disco song for the chat room though, in case anybody needs to disco dance...hehehe... Great big, giant hugs full of love! Juuno =) p.s. Please send me some positive vibes...I am sad today...<=) What We've Been Doing:
Did podcast and forgot to turn in AT on Astarå and Tiiaa

Bountiful bags perk means more infinite dust, which is just in time for Astarå last Enchanting levelling push
So Aprillian made items with all the glorious Frostweave she's been getting. also made some bags. Had a ton of Rune cloth so made some Rune cloths bags for guild.

Astarå got to 425 Enchanting. The next day she got to 450, she's de'ing stuff Epril made while levelling JC
Monday Astarå got to 470 using the 5 point levelling

Transfered Deepril over with 4k and 2 tombs of cold weather flying

Epril can't get lance at commanders, DK

I love Astarå's helm:

Played Rift on MT, Kudos to Ralffie for helping me out. Made a youtube channel:

Aprillian & Vrishna
Tried to run An'Kahet while in vent. Not happening !
Organising daily group run with V&A. Aprillian makes many mistakes.
Gundrak Had fun. First time for those toons. Took Aprillian, Auruk & Astarå Killed snakes.
Argent Tournament. Argent Aspiration. Yay ! 20 dungeon quests completed. Accidentally got Going down. Had no idea that I hadn't gotten that already.

Brishna and Treilana do Wailing Caverns and Gnomeregan. At level 29.

Silverlei gets NO respect ! Attention Clan of Darkness. Silverlei is Virishna. Virishna IS Silverlei !
Guild is at 13% toward lvl 3 ! Now 14% during this podcast !


I just thought that I'd write you something for your contest, although it's pretty mundane.

I play in a pretty awesome guild on Sisters of Elune named Unbroken.
A few of us good friends founded it and are all still in the guild (although one of them wanders off now and then, but she always comes back).

We do some decent raiding, have done most of the content up to the new raids. The main focus is raid progression, at the moment, but many of us do have a fair bit of alts that we like to play. To that end, I followed a couple of your more longtime listeners over to Earthen Ring to hang out. They got me into a Skype call with another long time listener, Sarah, and we all chatted while I started up a new DK as a goblin. It was pretty fun playing a goblin as I've never played a smaller race in WoW. I think Earthen Ring will be a nice vacation home for my alt. It does suck not to have access to my heirlooms and gold though. They said I should join the guild they were in, but that I needed to contribute something to the podcast. Then I saw there was a contest so it seemed like two birds, one stone.

Anyway, thanks for reading!!

Tiiaa and Astara are doing the higher
Aprillian & Vrishna
CoD reached level 2

RFC for the win! Ran it a few times. Then tried to do a random but didn't have a "viable" group. So we had to level up Lucerferus to 15. She was 13. Tiiaa took off her heirloom cloths for the cause. Then we got Deadmines.

Did AT

Ran DK starting area

Crusader Virinya ! Finally ! Got heirloom gear for Vrishna although the shoulders were disappointing. Although the extra dailies are GREAT !

Death Knights and hunter/rogue pair. Clan of Darkness level 2 ! Stay out of my bathroom ! (that means Tedrah and Inmyowndreams !) I'm confused yet strangely aroused.

- Ralff, Molly , Xanar, Thaze, trouble on Asaad - dispel, aoe, sparkly adds that seem new. Finally got it using aspect of the wild
- DwP : Pretty much got Halfus and V&T in BoT and Magmaw, ODS and Maloriak in BWD on farm

- Phasing in Twilight Highlands annoying
- Doing dailies - Sunday was 11625/12000 into Honored with Hellscreams reach and 20497/21000 into Revered with Therazane!
- Revered with Hellscream's Reach, but not enough tokens to buy the sword - need another 14.
- Hit 85 tol barad commendations - new [Blade of the Fearless]
- Revered with Dragonmaw - Tanking helm and dps gloves
(double DOH moment - can reforge for tanking. And can buy two pair!)
- Questing in Mt Hyjal. Had to do 108/115 to get Revered. dps neck and boots.
Hiide - ding 84 on whiptail
- Decided to open portal to Twilight Highlands, so had to do some quests.
- Bought Heirloom cloak and head for 2nd Alchemist to level faster to 75. Zoomed from 70 to 72. Though dungeon XP is poor now.
Rift - hit level 10. Skinning and Mining. Closed a rift solo. The way mobs aggro is different to wow.
Audio from Rigarmorty

Hi CAW Crew!

Attached is this weeks creepy audio :P




Hello from the Feesh!

Hello CAW!

I've been listening for quite some time, and finally decided it was time to email you! This is mostly due to Aprillian prodding me to do so via Twitter.
So i've been playing WoW since launch day. WoW and an iBook were my highschool grad gifts from my mother. This was probably a poor choice as she would happily tell you today. I pretty much proceeded to lose 2 years of my life playing. It was both good and bad times. Funny thing about it though... I never got a toon to 60! I've been an altaholic since day 1. I actually hit the level cap for the first time about 2 weeks before Cata dropped. It was pretty exciting, but honestly, it didn't change much, I decided to play an alt undead hunter until cata released... and now i'm leveling my new Gobby Warlock on Earthen Ring.
So how do I manage my many alts? To be honest, I really don't. I simply play what I enjoy playing, and frequently that means playing a new character. It's just what I enjoy sometimes. I do have a main, and I have several I play more than others, but I often decided to roll a new toon and just play it to level 10ish and then delete it. It's just calming. I've played pretty much every combo out there barring one. I really don't like Druids. I've never been able to play one past level 20. I played all through college, making alts on tons of servers, with new friends, old friends, and even teachers! I can't begin to tell you how many friends I met through simply wearing my For The Horde! T-shirt going out to dinner.
A little bit about myself...
I'm currently back home (near Chicago), with my Fiance', chilling out, watching some movies and playing WoW. I'm a web design for Guitar Center, as well as a few other places. In addition to playing WoW I also play a few tabletop games such as Warhammer 40k, Malifaux (check out the La Croix crew they're gobbys!), and Super Dungeon Explore, not to mention the other games I play on my computer (about 160 Steam Games). So for now I wish you all the best, and I thank you for you're incredible podcasts! They keep me going through my long hours of coding and designing, all the while making me wish I was home playing. I can't tell you how many times I've been tempted to get the mobile auction app for iPod just to get a fix of WoW in at work...
I'll be sending email periodically, and I'm sure I'll be talking with you all over vent realllll soon!
P.S. What mouse/keyboard do you all use? I use all Razer products. They glow!

Hey, CAW Crew, Lorebestes here.

I was finally going to record for you guys, but I am decidedly under the weather :(

However, I can still tell you all about my last few weeks!

My Spring Break encompassed the last days of March and the first of April, and being that I renewed my WoW account, I got a LOT of playtime in. I'm sort of a Night Owl, so I went nealry nocturnal for that week. A sort of wake up at 2 or 3 pm and stay up 'till 4-6 am.

For the first time outside of battlegrounds, my warrior/main Kalanor is a dps'er. I'd never tried fury, so I thought "what the heck." So now he's wielding two two-handers... oh, clean tag, sorry! Now he has one large weapon in each hand... alright, I don't think I can say that any differently, so I'm gonna leave it. Anyway, I got him into heroics for the first time in cata and did a respectable amount of dps for my first time. I still hope to get him tanking in raids, but I think that'll have to wait 'till Summer.

My crit-chicken (balance druid), Zebestes is now at 84 and 1/2 and doing easily as much dps as Kal in all greens and a level lower. :( Balance may be a little OP, methinks.

I now have a level 13 troll hunter on Earethen Ring who currently has 3 heirlooms and is looking forward to having 5 sometime soon. Speaking of him, hunters are sort of ridiculous in low level battlegrounds. I got 28 killing blows and two deaths yesterday in an Arathi Basin loss.

Speaking of pvp, my rogue who still carves out his exitence on Balnazzar is stuck at 77 because I always feel so lonely over there now that all my old friends (and I, for the most part) have transferred off. I really love that toon and, Vrishna, if you want 'rogue pvp lessons,' you can just ask me :)

Alright, though I have plenty more characters to talk about, I think this e-mail has gone on long enough. Love you all!

Hey, Aprillian, I forgot to add in that if people want to ask me questions or suggest lore segments, they can e-mail me at or find me on twitter as @ahlaenxna


Long Time no Speak from Segwick

Hello CtrlAltWow crew,

It has been quite some time since I have written in, so let me explain. You might remember me as Grothgar, with 2 of my other toons, Biscit, and Gravey. Well, that account was actually a friend of mine’s account that I returned to him, along with my 9 80’s right before Cataclysm. I had to then go back and activate my original account, do several recruit-a-friends, and am happy to say I now have 4 85’s, all with raid ready gear, and am continuing to level up my other 6 toons to 85.

Although I have not written in, I have not missed an episode. You are still my favorite podcast, and really enjoyed hearing Molly this week. Keep up the awesome work, and happy belated birthday Aprilian.


Good Times from Claypidgin

Hey CAW crew

Claypidgin here again. This week in wow has been great. I created a
death knight goblin and a blood elf priest and joined the Clan of
Darkness guild on the Earthern Ring server. These are some of my
observations from running on the horde side where I usually an
alliance player i.e a twelve year old on disguise. Hmm actually if you
ask my wife that she may agree with me.

1. Blood elves no matter what sex or class all stand and walk like
they are in high heels. While this is generally a sexy look it makes
for distracting game play. I guess the alternative is I could roll a
worgen and run like an old person.

2. When you already have a max level DK you should always make sure to
put the buttons of your new DK in the same place. If you don't your
rotation will make you activate your rocket boots and fly off the edge
of Ebon Hold to your death.

3. When joining the Clan of Darkness guild watch out about making
bunny slayer jokes or you may find that you are guileless and
friendless. Also that Dark Overlord may sound nice but he has a temper
and revenge is no fun unless you are the one giving it.

In all seriousness though I have had a lot of fun ofer on Earthern
Ring with you all. It still amazes me when I see 8 toons on and
realize that 6 of them are the same two people.

Anyway, until next time.

Forgot Tiiaa had 8 Wintergrasp Commendation 600 hp
Aprillian & Vrishna
VH run went very well. Was hard but fun.
New twins, (Pallies), leveled to 60. New, new twins at 9. Totally messed up granting of levels. Jeppy, HELP ! So I gave all the levels to a new toon. A rogue.



From Gravenau

Sorry for another week without my lovely voice to make your ears bleed I blame laziness and a love of my warm bed. For the lack of audio this week I put 3 more levels on my worgen hunter in 3 hours and the rest of my time. Has been split up between sleep,work and puzzle quest 2 so as always for the horde for the alliance for the sandgrophers and for the west coast eagles seeya

P.S I'm deadpool

After a horrible week at work, I found myself home, alone this past Friday and Saturday (March 25th and 26th) feeling sad, depressed, and I didn't what any wow nut would do and literally lost myself in the game for pretty much both days. It didn't hurt that the weather was crappy and I am still feeling sad over the loss of my pooch, but all cheese and crackers aside it was kind of an "over-do" as by the end of Saturday night, my ankles were numb, my breath was awful, I had a headache and was seeing double and I had to use a spatula to peel my self off my chair.
(((hows that for a visual)))
Anyway, I did lots of the Call to Arms battleground which was Strand of the Ancients, and I don't think the alliance won each time I played, and after nearly two solid days of playing I started getting a little trollish (as in L2PNOOBS), and at that point decided to call it a night.

I rolled a hunter on the new account and named the toon Mahkie a human hunter with a pet dog named Jackie. He is my second male toon, and he is going to be a questing toon that I plan on using to do the human leveling experience and already I am having great fun with him, and the they were made as homage to my dear departed dog, I have already bonded to the toon.

I haven't been on Rift much and I am afraid my interest in Rift is dwindling as time goes on. I wish I could say why other than it just hasnt been able to fully sink its teeth into me, and when there is a "take over: nine time out of ten you get beaned by mobs that are higher than you and there is nothing you can do, and that is just not fun.

I hope you all are well, and have a wonderful week!!

All the best,

Hey CtrlAltWow Crew,

First I wanted to say that I love to listen to your show. You are all very knowledgable about the game and share my enthusiasm for creating many alts. Though I have not quite risen to your level I definitely share the thrill of making a new toon.
I just had a couple of questions about the music that was played during episode 207 at approximately 1:56. It was your outro music and I know I have heard it in game before but I can't figure out where. I believe it was in one of the wrath zones but not entirely sure.
So, the two questions are:
1. What is the name of the song that was played?
2. Give it to me.
Thanks and keep up the great work. For the Alliance!

Hey Ctrl-Alt-WoW crew,

It's been a while since I wrote in, but I'm still out here listening every week. I managed to catch the live feed the last Saturday in March. I always enjoy the show, but I must say I do love hearing it live.

I have been taking a little bit of my WoW time to play Rift. I really like Rift , but it won't replace my first love, WoW. I don't really understand the controversy between WoW players playing Rift and those who aren't. It's entirely possible to love two games at the same time. It's kind of like loving the sound of el Jeppy's voice and at the same time loving the sound of Ashayo's. It makes a girl's heart giddy just thinking about it. You would never try to make me choose between those sexy voices, so why make me choose between games.

I have been playing WoW as well. I've been making good progress on my goblin hunter, Jaxie on Sisters of Elune. I had Tuesday off from work and managed to level her from 26 to 35. I also got her herbalism (silent "h", lol) to 170 and her inscription to 225.

My hunter over on Jubei'Thos, in the Pants on Head guild, hit level 52 this week and is spending time in Winterspring. She got almost a full level in one run of Zul'Farrak using the LFD tool.

My main, Tedrah on SoE, has finally reached i347 for her gear and is, in theory, raid ready. Tried my first Cataclysm raid in Throne of the Four Winds. That didn't go so well. We just didn't have the dps to get the job done. We did do a little better each try and tried several strategies before calling it a night. I will say it is fun to take the air bridge between platforms, especially on my Traveling Tundra Mammoth.

Well, that's enough about me. Back to you all. Keep up the good work. I love the show.

For the Horde & the Defiant!

Hello all,
hope you are all doing well.
I really have been meaning to write in but with work, ninja episodes, life, stuff, things, (you enter some of your own words here) it just has not happened as have seen and heard.
SOOOO here is a ninja email while you record.
Yes I am at work, hardly working! :)
Listening to podcasts,
watching the Chicago White Sox win their opener!
Chatting with El Jeppy!!!
ok ok
onto some mowow content.
I have been able to get in the game and I have done some dailies, the cooking, fishing variety on some characters.
Also, I have spent some time on my rogue, Mojito.
Now a quick refresher on Mojito's background (I think it was about episode 69 and/or 160 I first wrote about Mojito) he was the 3rd character I created, ever!
My intention about 6 years ago was to let my first 2 characters rest and get some rested xp and level this rogue in the mean time. Well! That did not really happen because 6 years later that poor rogue is still only about level 60! Just like DK's I just cannot get into playing rogues, I dont know why!?
So I am trying different specs because I still dont know what I am doing on him. Currently Mojito is using the heirloom gear and daggers in the outlands, but wait! before I start the outlands I have decided to level up mining on him...AGAIN! yes again because he once had mining and I had dropped it for skinning. I am not sure why, just impulse thing. He also has enchanting which I need to level too.
On other news, I am kind of at a loss with wow and other mmo's,
I mean, I feel I have lost my purpose. I dont have a guild to speak of or any guildies and I also dont want to disappoint a new guild. I still enjoy playing but hope I can find my inner wowself.
Hope all of you know where your innerwow is and hope this email makes it to you before you finish recording, which is now!
so happy april first and
For the InnterGamer in you!
