Ctrl Alt WoW Episode 329 - Tedrah Wiped BWD

Aprillian, Ashayo, Tedrah 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 WoW Pet or an Authenticator.

What We've Been Doing:



Pro Pet Crew - 30 level 25's and better trap
Working through Jade Forest on melee druid. 86.5 and realised I hadnt trained herb/mining!
Upjade Complete at 52% into 87
Battle.Net app - no logging in. But 2nd account not in beta program.
Not sure I'm going to be able to run wow from two different directories.

CoD - Blackwing Descent

Lost macros and action bar setup on Ashayo





Helloooo CAW Sweeties,

You all know what time it is... Come on - everyone in... It's group huggles time!!! /squee :)

Sorry for the lack of audio this week, I lost my Internet earlier today!! I know right! What is going on?! I left it on the shelf outside my room... Where it always has been... But it vanished!! I checked with Bailey but he said he didn't 'borrow' it and bury it in the backyard!! So hence why you get an email :)

I have not had a lot of time in game this week as I've had a very nasty bug knock me for six! However I am finally feeling a lot better and will get some game time soon... I hope!!

I mean Helloooooo I'm having Pet Battle Withdrawals!! So much so that I dreamt of pet battles last night! :D
The consensus on the Internet problem seems to be with all the rain we have had here lately could possibly be affecting the lines with water... But to be honest I just want it to be back ASAP! There is only so much i can do on the iPad Lol

I have attached a little quote - this I direct to not only you four wonderful amazing people but also to the many fabulous listeners! Always remember this :)

Love you all greatly
Leeta  xoxo

PS - Woof woof! Bailey says Hi :)

Hola CAW Crew!!

I hope everyone is doing good in game, as well as out of game! Here is our submission, hope you like it!

One thing, though...please excuse some of the audio. We have just received new equipment in the Kitheloo studios, and we're still trying to get used to it!

Have a great week!
Dreams and Kithore...

Hello Aprillian, Ashayo, ElJeppy and Tedrah,

this is my contribution for CAW 329 and the link i am talking about in the last segment.

btw, the bases i talk about are: Aldor - Temple of Sha'tar
                                              Scryers - Sanctum of the stars.

Have a great show

Grand Nagus

Hi CAW crew,

This is Fiderbooze the friendly horde ganking dwarven priest on Boulderfist.  A few weeks ago you all were bothered by a bad review left by some bozo because your podcast wasn't hardcore enough.  Please take this in the spirt it is intended but in general the CAW play style annoys hardcore players.  Screwing around with alts, not progressing to end game content, running old raids with over leveled toons,  wasting time with pet battles, etc...Many hardcore players find this a waste of time and hence will dislike this podcast.  I was one of those players as I am a raider of current content and it took me sometime to get used to the podcast but now I love it!  It helps me appreciate the different aspects of this groundbreaking game.  So don't let a few bad reviews by the uninformed rain on your parade, your podcast is excellent and keep up the good work!


PS. As far as this Shhamaya business some people just don't get the game. I tried to get my wife to play and she lasted about 1 level. You can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink! I'm surprised you got her to level 90!

Shout Outs & Thank You

Donation from Tiber. I really love the show, and hope this will help. Could I get a shout-out to the old "Legendary Thread" podcast, and the "Can't Quit You" guild on Baelgun for bringing me in to the World of Warcraft? Thanks, Tiber/Rob Carome

Clan of Darkness
Here is this weeks audio! If I missed anyone ill get em next week hope it makes it in on time.

Ctrl Alt WoW Episode 328 - $15 WTF

What We've Been Doing:


Worgen Druid to level 82





Dear CAW Crew!

So, this is Caitrin again. You are probably saying.. Again? What? Who? Well, I wrote about 8 months ago with promises of a twice monthly email and it never really materialized because real life literally threw in a massive stop sign and said: "No. You're Not." Well, first it said "STOP!" Then it said the other stuff. I missed the podcast for quite awhile and only recently started listening again when I started playing more actively and was so happy to hear all of you. You make playing the game so much more fun especially when your guild has tumbleweeds flying through it.

The one thing I did in game while taking care of RL needs was work on the holiday achieves because I really, REALLY want the achievement "What A Long, Strange Trip It's Been", especially since achieves are now account bound. So, during Children's Week, I logged on and did everything with that little brat I was supposed to. What I didn't do right was look at the dates of Children's Week closely. I thought it was three days longer than it was and ended up not getting that kid to the dungeon in Northrend, nor did I eat a piece of that Chocolate Cake in front of him. I didn't have the recipe, none of my guildies were online that week, it wasn't on the auction house, and despite my attempts to do the cooking daily in Outland, it didn't drop.  So hooray! I have to wait a whole year! Sigh. I didn't cry, but I was kind of off RL chocolate cake for awhile. On the upside, I finished every single Midsummer achievement in one day. I had not one of them done that morning, but they were all done by that night. It helped that the husband and kids were gone for the day and I could pretend I didn't feel all that good and should really stay in. *cough* *cough*

The last few weeks, I've mainly been trying to do some normal raids with a raiding guild called shadow Lords here on Fenris. I actually switched my main over to that guild for now along with the alt of the GM of We Can Not Heal Stupid since it's pretty much dead. My gear level was pretty low and they keep me on standby because of that and take me along to help me get geared up if someone else doesn't show up. So far, I've gone from 490 to 507 in about a couple of weeks. It helped that I had been kissing up to the Shado-pan Assault in LFR as much as possible - more like as much as I could take - prior to joining. I find LFR fun early in the week and a drunken "what were you thinking??" on Monday night.

As for all my alts, they of course, have suffered. I only recently, as in the last week, discovered the change about heirlooms. I own every heirloom there is and about had a heart attack since I have every slot filled on Fenris. Five are at level 90 and the others are really low level. So I collected up all the heirlooms and sent them to my Banker who had the rest and redistributed them to my 90's who are now furiously running Heroic 5-mans for the Justice points to upgrade them. Fortunately, as long as your iLvl is fairly decent for last patch or so, and you're in there with a couple of players with similar ills, running a Heroic dungeon is like a fast Scenario. If I didn't feel the need to outfit all my alts RIGHT NOW, it would not be that big of deal, but no, I want all the heirlooms updated and with the correct alts and my Banker having the rest in storage and then all will be right with the world. One day they are going to do a study where they link the exacerbation of OCD with WoW, I

swear to god. :) Thankfully I have ADD as well, so I may have forgotten all about it in a few weeks. ;p

Pet Battles: I know you guys totally hate pet battles, at least that's the inference I got from all those podcasts, amirite? So I won't bore you to death with all my pet battle details, but I have been leveling my Gilnean Raven, Terrible Turnip, and my Fossilized Hatchling who I named Sam Neill. I finally! got an Anodized Robo Cub from Winterspring. I didn't think I was ever going to see one since I despise camping, which is why I have relegated the TLPD to my dreams, but there the Robo Cub sat when I went out there to do the daily pet battle. It was of poor quality, but with those pet stones you get, I guess it really doesn't matter. I find if I can get around to doing all the daily pet battles of the major continents and all the areas of Pandaria, I most likely to get one of those stones almost every day or at least every other day. I don't guarantee that, that is just my experience.  

Ok, I think I  wrote plenty. I remember listening to what I wrote last time (Ashayo read it! I was so excited!) and realized that when I said that I would write down a lesson for the week that it sounded like I was saying: "Now, I'm going to teach you all a lesson!" That is not what I meant, I meant more like what F'ups did I get into and how I got out of it.

Funny Guild Names:

<STDs are BOP>
The thing about this one was that I could verify that it HAS been a guild several times on more than one server, but once it gets reported to Blizz, it gets shut down. I don't know why cause it made my drink come out of my nose.

<Drunken Dragons>
For the life of me I can't explain why this cracks me up, but it seems like it's a combo of Dunkin' Donuts, Dungeons and Dragons, and drunkeness? You tell me what's wrong with me.  

That's all. Cheers to you all,  
Caitrin of Fenris

p.s. Jeppy - Here's to your rapid recovery and may all your auctions be bid up sky high and bought at ridiculous prices! :)

Hey all....tis Kurly here.  Sorry its been forever since I wrote in!  Im not sending an audio file as I am still digesting the sound of my voice after having been on a few Juuno and Pixie girl raid nights.....that, and my seeming inability to not swear like a trucker with a hangnail!

Since January, as you may recall, my life has been somewhat rocky with the loss of my job.  I had and left four part time jobs(Dunkin' Donuts, Home Depot, Doggie Day Trippers, and then Home Depot again) but have finally landed a job that is a bit more in my field and pays more 8.00 an hour.  

Who said the economy was on an upswing?

I also found out last month that my roommate is selling the condo, so I have to move sometime in the Fall.  Although the timing for this is awful, and I am going to hate to leave my pooch Mickey, this will be the first time in a long time I will be living on my own...and I am looking forward to that!

So...whats up with my WOW?  I now have 8 level 90's and for the first time I am enjoying LFR.  I have teamed up with another small guild on Norgannon and we have been trying to do a 10 man for the last few weeks,  What is it with raiding and the sudden disappearance of those who accepted the invitation?  Hopefully it will happen soon, as I fear the raid leader is getting discouraged.

Friday nights have been a barrel of laughs with Juuno and Pixie girl.  Sooner or later I will get to leveling on my toon in COD.  The cross realm thing is great, but I think it would be better if if were all just a big guild run!

My plan now....ROGUES!!  I have never leveled a rogue to max level.   I did a dungeon for the first time last night on my level 70 rogue, Nhetta. and had a absolute blast....maybe the WOW want me to go this way!  Fun fun!!

Anywho...I hope you all are having a great summer/winter!!  

All the best!!


Hello all,

my contribution for the week and the link i talk about in my segment.

Grand Nagus

Greetings to all in CAW-land!

Well, it's been one of those weeks... you know the ones - the ones where you have so much to do that you do nothing.
Yup. I did nothing - I didn't even log into the game Monday to Friday!  
My house is clean and I cooked all my own meals this week, though! LOL

I did log in today (Saturday) to do some power leveling on Maggrah and Nudhimag. They've both just hit 60 and moved in to start questing in Zangarmarsh. (Oh, I just love those crazy Cenarions and their need for plant parts!)

I also finally accomplished some pet battling. I've tamed a bunch of new pets, I've managed to get one of my little fella's up to 15, AND I got the Battle Master achievement for earning 200 pet battle achievement points. I'm now sitting at 225 unique pets, so I'm only 25 away from getting a Feral Vermling with the Going to Need More Leashes achievement.

Really, though, the most exciting thing for me this week was booking my airline ticket for BLIZZCON! Woot!!  I'm really looking forward to hanging out with Juuno and anyone/everyone else that shows up. Meetups galore! Of course, we were looking forward to crashing a party or two... but, then we got invited. *grin* Takes all the fun out it sometimes.  I'm still contemplating if I want to cosplay or not. Hmm... *taps chin*  Maybe I'll be a Vrykul Maiden... Double-hmm...

Ah well. I guess with that thought, I'll wrap this up.
See you all in-game!

Leeta has been a little busy to do an audio so I thought I'd surprise her!! Woof!
It's hard to type with little paws!
Hope you enjoy!
Lots of big woof huggles and lots of wagging tail

Candy crush free

Sorry not much to report this week as it’s been up down and all over the place this week and hope what ever happen I hope it gets better soon aprillian.

Hello from Strumpet

Hi guys!

Just a quick note from me - I thought I was going to have a chance to send you an audio today, but somehow the morning has gotten away from me!

Just wanted to thank you for getting to hang out with you guys last week on the show - I had a great time!

In-game I've been super-busy. Finally got a max level engineer. Previously, I've always given up at about 125 ... bombs are boring.  But now that I have a 600? Can you say synapse springs????? MOLL-E????  Wormhole generators? Mispiercing goggles?? Holy moly!! I want all my 'mains' to be engineers now!! That sounds like a lot of work though. Since I have at least 4 'mains'.

Anyway, much much love to you all!


Gathering Tip!

I wanted to get a quick note in to thank Ashayo for the tip on the gathering gloves, Foragers Gloves, that drop off a mob in Kun Li Summit.  They cut the time for mining in half.  If I weren’t a Tauren and already picked flowers like nobodies business, I’m sure that would probably cut my herbing time in half too.
Now…if only I had some sort of instant-flight mount….hrm.

My car voice...

Held this for a while before sending. It turned out better that I expected. And it's likely non-sequitur to the episode!

Hay yall.
Love the show and thought you could use a laugh.  I was on YouTube last night and found this funny video of a monkey playing a hunter.  It is one of those Hitler subtitle things. it was called Hitler Does LFR   i think this is a link for it.

Great show.

Ctrl Alt WoW Episode 327 - Thunder Island or Bust!

Aprillian, Ashayo, Tedrah 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 WoW Pet or an Authenticator.

Juuno’s Corner

Hello Ctrl Alt Wow Darlings!

I've put an audio in the drop box for you, and here are the links I mention in the audio...hehe... love ya!!

/great big hugs!


What We've Been Doing:


Pet Battles

Second account trying to catch up!
Dying after removing from battle
[Anubisath Idol]
Motes of Harmony

Isle of Thunder

On Nevikhoof


Melee Druid even worse over wireless. Maybe latency is why I dislike melee?

Pet battles good with bad internets. Levelled my Anubisath Idol

Transferred Druid flagged for name change?

Not as fun playing on small mac and no addons


Yo! For the show.

Hello my darlings,

Firstly apologies for once again being absent. I am currently having the NHS try and turn my frown upside down. From the rather gruesome video they showed me this seems to involve a hammer and sticky tape! I am assured it is for the best though.

The heat here continues to be a problem. As mentioned last week the spontaneous combustion of elderly folk has left blackened tweed stains all over the high street. I have found ice in the banana hammock keeps one cool though if somewhat artificially shrunken.

As promised to Big Steve and others I have tried to do something other than pet battle this week. This has included some monk levelling. I have to say that the monk is becoming my least favourite class. Just not really getting the hang of it. I will persevere though. I do like rolling and the flying kick is great of high places. An event for the Azeroth Olympics I think.

I also did a bit of PvP. Not in battlegrounds but over on my old PvP server. Talk about your pixelated hellfest!! I forgot just how hideous the experience can be. I did however get to see many new and exciting graveyards so mustn't grumble.

Of course pet battling did take place. I grabbed a crow and glow fly from the Darkmoon Fair. I also headed out to Thunder Isle. Have to say being back in a place where pretty much everything can kill you adds spice to life. Coming out of a battle to find yourself being bore down upon by a T-Rex certainly gets the heart pounding!

Ok well I will say goodbye for now. Hope you have a great show and I look forward to listening.

Hola CAW crew!

I know we have not sent in very many submissions in quite a while, so you may have forgotten who we are. We are InMyOwnDreams, or "Dreams" for short, and her hubby Kithore.

We will try to send audio more often - it just happens that life has been quite the roller coaster ride for the last year or so...

As always, we hope that everyone is doing well in game and out of game!

Dreams and Kithore,
Dragonblight, Earthen Ring, and CoD

Sorry not much to report this fortnight awesome time to record by the way. Here’s my audio
Big G

Greetings, all!
So, I'm apparently not good at organizing myself to submit every single week. Oh well - I do what I can. :)
Here's an audio of what I've been up to the past couple of weeks.

Hello CaW Crew,

This week's submission has been a last minute thing, i almost forgot,
cause i wanted to get as much as possible in, and i just now realized,
that if i don't start doing it now, it's going to be to late, and we can't
have that, so, i hope you enjoy it despite the lastminute effort.

Grand Nagus

P.S.: Where is my "J&P after dark"?, it's about time that one gets done:)

Hello CAW Crew!

Sorry no audio yet, didn't think you'd be recording so soon. I do have a few parody songs bouncing around in my head, but between actually playing WoW and theater haven't had the time to record it.

In the past few weeks both I and Morgaine leveled our CoD toons to 90, yay first level 90's horde side! I also leveled a few other toons to 90, mostly so I can start farming motes at halfhill. I've gotten back into the living steel market again with my characters on Kael'thas. It's good money whenever I find a good "unload" time.

Achievement wise, I got the Zookeeper title, which was very fun. Have like two or three captureable pets left to go. Then I get to start collecting the argent tourneys etc. It's a lot harder since I have no collector editions except mists.

I've gotten my friend Alan back into the game, and me and Morgaine have been leveling new alts with him. At some points I need to convince someone to log on Nevikhoof to add morgaines newest alt to the Ctrl Alt WoW Guild.

Anyways, thats been our last few weeks in WoW, I promise to get you a new song in the next few weeks, Grease Rehearsal has been kicking my butt.

For the Horde, For the Alliance, for the "Does anyone else find it weird that Eugene is older then Miss Lynch?"

Wren and Morgaine

PS: Whatever it is, It's Leeta's fault.

PPS: I've started work on creating a home arcade machine with my wii, since I never use it for anything else.

Hey gang! Had to get this in early! You all have a great weekend!
