Hiya Aprillian, Leeta, Rogueslayer, Tedra & all our awesome wow family!
Hope everyone is having an amazing week in and out of game :)
I have nothing to report, got bored this week so decided to work on the green fire quest again. And well yeah got my butt kicked by the last boss, not giving up those, I will get him might take me five years, but I will get him!
Oh and I have a complaint, Phasing, never really even think about it until someone needs help, and what happens can't see the quest they need help with. Okay I think I understand why they did this, but really it hurts those your trying to help and that's just not right! As in last night I went too help Mstake with a boss he needed, and nope couldn't see him or the guy he needed to kill. I took five of my girls over and not one of them could help him, all I could do is watch him get killed! I think as Gypsy said if you are grouped with that person then you should be able to help them. Any thought on how you can get around this?
But on a good note I did remember that two of my girls hadn't done that quest line, so today I managed to get one of them where Mstake is now :) So tonight will finish up his quest and who knows maybe I'll just stay catch up with him so I can help when he needs it.  

And that's been my week.
Love & Kisses
Pixie & Juuno

Homeless Alts
Greetings to you all @ Control Alt Wow,

I have been listening to your podcast for some time now, and I have become very fond of you all, those on the podcast, and also the guildies that send in emails/voicemails every week.

I have several alts, most of whom are in the biggest guild in the world (can you guess?). Hubby and I are also Frogpants fans and belong to the Tadpool, as I know some of your friends do.

I love that guild, but it is hard to find a niche where him and I can call our virtual home, being as it is so large. We spend a lot of time in Azeroth together and would like to share these hours with other people of like mind.

We both feel like we would make some great memories with you and your family in COD, and he promises to write you officially as well to request joining.

I hope you will consider accepting me into your wonderful family.

Hugs to you all,

Danine (aka Moonie)

p.s. Shout out to my fellow New Englanders, Aprillian and Rougeslayer <3

Really busy week
My god the amount of stuff I did this week it will blow your mind how much I did in and out of game you will be truly shocked at the things I archived this week

Update for ep370
Hello Ctrl Alt WoW. This is Sosur again giving you guys an update on what I have been doing. Lets start with Sosur. Since I have hit 90 I have just been working on the rest of the zones in Pandaland, working towards Loremaster of Pandaria. I did some timeless isle to boost my iLvl first though.  I didn't do much else with him this week, oh well. Oh look! New shiny warlock, Ignam.  I got him up to level 23 before I sent this email. I am loving the warlock class, it is so fun. I can see why a certain someone, *cough*Leeta*cough* , likes them so much. Attached are some screenshots of my characters. Although I think Ignam believes he can fly. That's all for now. For the Horde! For the Alliance! And Ctrl Alt WoW.

Shout Outs & Thank You

Clan of Darkness

Hello Ctrlaltwow Crew
It has never happened that I write to you 2 weeks in a row but I come bearing a gift.
I won the top 25 in Guild activity competition we had last week in the game. I won an Armored Bloodwing and I thank Donnie for the gift. I already have this mount so I thought I would give it to you Ladies to give away.
You might be able to have a competition of your own and get somebody to make you a new Email bumper.
Anyway I love the new line up. You Ladies are awesome. Have a great week.
Sincerely Matahorn
Ps I must thank Donnie for letting me give away my prize.
