Hello Darlings!  I hope everyone is doing great this week!  

I'm including mine, and Pixiegirl's, contribution for episode 273, with some links and an mp3 for a song (I included 20 secs of it on the end of my bit, but thought you might like the whole thing if you didn't already have it Aprillian!  hehehe!)  Okay, happy recording, and happing WoW'ing!  Also, I'm playing around with some new sound bites I got in this episode...hehehe...I hope they don't suck...

/great big hugs!

Juuno & Pixiegirl

What We've Been Doing:


I got faster Internet at the new place. Uploading last week’s podcast took 3 mins, it was almost 30 on DSL!


Death Knight is now 83 from running dungeons. No gear :/
Rogue! Started questing on a very neglected level 30 rogue in Southern Barrens. Slowly getting the hang of him.
- Exalted with Therazane
- Doing Molten Front dailes  - quite a bit easier in good gear!
- Finding MF dailies and TB dailies are quickest way to get weekly guild rep. Now 17000/21000. Should be exalted next week!
- Tamed Loque'nahak with great thanks to Binky - summoned me to Scholozar Basin, then to Dal coz I didn't have a BM spec, then back to the Basin on another toon! He even reminded me to put talent points on him! LOL
- Tried queuing for 1st half of Dragon Soul again, but they always seem to be fail groups.
- Queued up for 2nd half and went straight to last fight...again!
- Queued up, for whole raid, won tier chest and healing trinket

Dual-boxed AQ40 on Jekle and Hiide with Wren. Easy!

- Orc warlock is level 14 and making careful progress through Azshara!



Hey CAW/COD Crew,

I hope everyone is doing well in and out of game. I was glad to see that Jeppy was back online and is in better health. I may be heading over to the UK for an assignment in the next year and need to have a strong ally to assist me in ducking the bobbies in L-town. I also want to gain his trust and pilfer his guild bank but we’ll keep that between you and me.

Anyway, I have had an eventful few weeks in WOW aside from the daily drama of RL that is my life. My mage, Readytogogo, dinged 85 and began gearing up for heroics. While waiting in queues I was able to secure a decent transmog set that I am quite happy with. I mean, come on, she’s got an eye patch! I finally got the final piece and have attached a screenshot of  her Arcane outfit.

My Warrior, Bangobingo, after months of running Kara finally got the Shield of Impenetrable Darkness to drop. Now I just need to get a nice sword to complete his transmog set.

In other alt news, I was able to get my rogue, Tiptop, to level 65 in order to max out his professions. I am unsure if I will continue too much further with this toon as I also leveled my other rogue, CPTStabbin to 85. This brings my total of max level toons to 7 across two servers.

In RL I am happy to announce that my marriage dinged level 8 this week and I couldn't be happier with the woman I married. We are trying to better ourselves by beginning a daily exercise routine together. My job already requires daily physical training but I am going to try to supplement it with the Insanity and P90X workout programs. We will need a lot of support and encouragement as our eagerness to workout at the end of the day wanes constantly.

Well, that is enough for now. Take care and I‘ll see you in game!




Morning all!
Keelhaul here. No not that Keelhaul, the good looking one ;) I meant to do an audio for this week, but hopefully an email will suffice.

Inspired by Jeppy's success, I decided to give trade skill master a try. I figured if Jeppy can do it... Just kidding mate.

The add-on is overwhelming at first. It took me a few hours to get just one section working. I recommend Faid's video set-up guides at clockworkriot.com

I started off Friday night with 600 gold. Monday morning, I'm looking at 5000g.
I admit its not Rockefeller earnings but a heck of a lot more than I would have earned without TSM.

I'll cut it off here before it sounds too much like an infomercial ;) oh and I have been playing on another server. Alliance side at that!! So no AH competition on ER.

Thanks again all for the great show.

And many, many alts ;)

Hail and well met intrepid CaW crew, Aprillian, Jeppy, Ashayo, Tedrah and today's special guest (if we have one).
It's been a "funtastic" week in wow for the Nekrobobs.

  The lovely Mrs. Nekrobob has been working Skylla, her loremaster toon, through Northrend and has thus far finished Howling Fjord, Borean Tundra, Dragonblight and is halfway through Grizzly Hills. She's reached level 82 (ding) and, very unexpectedly, has become exalted with the Horde Expedition (can you say Mechanohog schematic?) With a little help she did the Conquest pit quest in Grizzly Hills but the reward gear was not nearly as cool and shiny looking as the rewards from the Ring of Blood in Nagrand.

   Mr. Nekrobob has been working the auction house to raise money to fund his Rogue's "Fangs of the Father" campaign.
By "working" the auction house I mean to say that his Warlock Alhazzred went through the banks, bags and mail boxes of every alt and disenchanted everything that wasn't nailed down, soul-bound or actually covering someones virtual tushie.
  The enchanting mats (and hundreds of other miscellaneous bits and bobs) were then sold at auction for whatever price they would fetch. The money raised (just shy of 14000 gold) was used to purchase Valor Point BOE gear from the auction house.
  Using the gear from the auction house, gear purchased from Valor and Justice point vendors and gear won from Raids and Dungeons Lastkiss now has a Item Level of 380. She can walk through most heroic level dungeons with eyes closed and hands in pockets while the mobs and bosses drop dead all around from witnessing her sheer awesomeness. She's complete the Fall of Deathwing achievement and a host of others that came too fast and numerous to list. This is my first time experiencing current top level end game content and it's really quite fun and terrifying!

  Early Sunday morning Lastkiss went raiding with Wren and the gang in Ahn' Qiraj (or AQ40). It was a lot of fun.  A bunch of peeps got crazy bug mounts and funky vintage gear. She didn't get a bug but did manage to get a sexy new dagger called "Death's Sting" to add to her collection. Big Thanks to Wren for organizing the run it was awesome!

  The last random encounter for Lastkiss on Sunday was the Echo of Sylvanas fight. "Oh, no" I said to Mrs. Nekro, "Not Sylvanas, she's kicked my butt and rage-quit my group more than five times this week."
This time however, Lastkiss and her amazing new Rogue skills were totally up to the task.
The Dark Lady got cut three ways bad: long, wide and deep! That's right, the big bad Banshee Queen went down!!
It was indeed a truly epic moment for me and my little Rogue (even more epic than killing Deathwing which was really cool but happened so fast and furious that it was over before I really knew what I was doing or what was going on)
 I think in the next expansion I might try to join a raid group so I can work on the boss fights from day one, that way I can appreciate them more. Perhaps it would be fun to start a raid group from level one and raid our way through all the old expansion content at level right up to the end bosses of Mists.

Cheers and thanks for your lovely podcast,

The Nekrobobs

and remember undead love is forever….


  Lastkiss is now at the point where she needs to pickpocket the ring boss so she can get the quest that leads to the "Fangs of the Father" dagger set. The quest however does not work in the LFR, it only works wile in a regular or heroic raid group. It would be absolutely awesome if one of our guild mates, who's in a raid group, could pug her in so she can complete the pickpocket quest. Please send an in-game mail or whisper to Lastkiss on Earthen Ring if you can make this happen. Cheers and thanks.

Submission for 273

Hi CAW Sweeties,

Hope this finds you all well - Aprillian hope you have settled into your new place nicely, Ashayo hope your week with Iron Man Toon has been better then last week :) , Jeppy hope your feeling good & frolicking in the gold & Tedrah love seeing your craft projects & may the creative juices flow! Sending extra special hugs to you all ... Just coz :)

What have I been up to?!
Well I've not spent a huge amount of time in-game this week. Been crazy busy with work & rehab for my shoulder. When I have been in-game I've spent a lot of it hunting Time Lost Proto Drake. No luck so far, not even seen his corpse however have found & killed Vyragosa twice so far.
Did LFR and managed to get a good group this week (compared to the horrible ones I've had the past month lol) & won some new gloves. No staff dropped this week off Deathwing :( lol so try again next week!
Didn't play my Iron Man Toon - letting her get some rested xp for the moment plus still recovering over the horrendous Iron Man attempts from last week!
That's about it for WoW news from me.

I am currently taking few days off and am chilling out down at The Gold Coast. Weather is gorgeous, the beach & water look wonderfully appealing however cold as ice /brrrr !! The apartment is nice & very close to all the good shopping places :D

Well that is it for me - have a fantastic week everyone.

Huggles all round
Leeta xoxo

For the long pauses

working and watching way too much ABC 3 online this week hence the lack of fresh and exciting going on in my week.  Got to chat with kithore brifly today he is enjoying his work and says pinky pie is ok and told me to ask dreams for more details and to stay away from her school also chatted with Matt who has recently launched a new you tube channel with a new recording mike and hopefully some more Nac and Juuno in the not to distant future. Plus I need the new Mac book pro because they look pretty anyone want to buy me one for it is shiney.


HI Caw Crew!

Attached is my audio update for this week. I did a bumper for my show recently but you have a choice of whether or not you want to include it. There are two versions of the update attached.

Loving your work as always!
