Group Huggles Time :)
Hello sweeties,

Here's a quick little audio just to fill you in on my week :)

Have a wonderful show and take care!

Lots of love and huggles

Auruk hit 93 and Garrison to level 2 is so much better now that I know what I’m doing. Went right to the mind after getting storehouse and forge. I think I waited 3 or 4 weeks on Aprillian until I realized the mine could be open by a quest.

After the show last Saturday, Grand Nagus and I teamed up to farm some Saberstalkers rep and claws, and we had a great pug group helping us out!  I managed to get revered with the faction, so I have Order of the Awakened to finish up.  There’s only one daily quest to farm rep for that, so I’m doing that and working on other toons.  

After that, I went to check on my garrison missions and I had gotten the shipyard mission mount!  Whee!

Because it seems to be a thing, I’ve attached a screenshot of Ferrosel the belf with Knucklerot in the background.

Working on her I came across an NPC just standing about on a rock in the Ghostlands.  Turns out that he used to have a rogue only quest, but now he’s just an NPC standing about with his pet, not doing or saying anything.

Found a toy on the north cliffs of Tanaan that change you into a fel-tainted Dranei.  Can I make it permanent?  So pretty!


And of course I IMMEDIATELY mounted up and flew!  :)

Once you get Pathfinder, when you die you get a flying mount in Draenor, even on low level toons.  

Rain dings 96

I can fly!  GO TO ALL THE PLACES!!

Tiny island southeast of Nagrand, wasn’t looking for it, but I came across Robin!

Thursday, worked on Mordrain for a while.  Depleted her rested at halfway through 97, so went to work on another toon.

Friday night, GoblinBabe hit 90.  Spent some time this morning getting her to 91 and getting her garrison set up.  At full rested, the Draenor opening quests get you about 80% of 90!  Need to work on PlagueRain (my other 90) to get her garrison set up as well.  It’s so nice being able to fly for a lot of these quests….almost feels like CHEATING!



One night in Westfall
hello guys and gals!

The other night I took my little bloodthirsty dwarf priest on a stroll along the Longshore in Westfall, a murloc bloodbath it was, and pleased with ourselves we sat down and had a nice murloc fin barbequeue.

My dwarf priest suddenly stopped eating, pointed his finger out towards a shipwreck nearby and said, what is that?  On the nearly sunken ship was a flag, thorned and ripped to shreads, I could barely see what the symbol on the flag was but he said, " that looks like a unicorn on that flag, what tribe would carry such a flag he asked chewing on a murloc fin.

I didnt know so we just sat there staring at it.

So my question to you is, is there some lore behind this flag?  Maybe Grand Nagus can enlighten us ?

Love and hugs from

New to show & fairly new to wow
Just started listening and getting more into the game itself

How can i get involved into the community, from all ya talk about it seems amazing

My week in WOW
Fracta with another update. I've had a long day of driving up to the Canadian border at Sault St Marie MI, so this update is going to be brief.
This week has been a little slow. I did however acquire 3 new mounts to raise my mount count to 246. I got 2 from the stables and raised enough apexis crystals to buy the Reins of the Corrupted Dreadwing.
I finished leveling the last of my battle pets for a grand total of 852 pets, with 724 of them being unique. For now the only new pets I could acquire would be from the first 2 collector editions and TCG pets. Save one from Heroes of the Storm that I am working on. I did get a surprise while leveling the last pet, Baby Winston, he is so cute. The surprise was a new achievement,  Draenor Pet Brawler. That is from winning 2000 pet battles in Draenor. Yet another reason why I use the title 'the Insane'.
I didn't spend much time on my 6 hunter alt army. I did raise them all 5 levels so they are now level 55. With battlepet leveling out of the way for now I should have more time to work on my alt army. So of course I have already started prepping another group for an alt army on another server.
Well my lovelies, I hope your week is wonderful.


p.s. As soon as I get a mic that can record while I drive with decent quality I will start sending in audio.

Hello CAW crew
Good day Ctrl Alt Wow guys and girls! Hope you are all well?
Kep the Gnome Mage (and Kuhok the Goblin Mage) here!
I haven't had much time to play this week due to having to write a university assignment on intermittent self-catheterisation! /yawn! Would MUCH rather be playing WoW!
I did get a little time to play, but its mostly been centred around Garrison maintenance and PVP in Ashran! So I finally started putting my Gladiator’s Sanctum to good use! I have been collecting bones (for the level 3 blue print) 2529 so far. Getting honor is pretty quick! I’m also getting geared up through the use of work orders, winning events, handing in quests and fragments etc. Got about 8 pieces of PVP gear so far, so not too bad considering I have only been playing (on average) an hour a day!
I have also started the he Nemesis title quests. I decided to go for the Undead (the Death Stalker title) on Kep and the Human (Manslayer title) on Kuhok, thinking these would be pretty quick to obtain. The human one is going very nicely with 196 kills so far! However the Undead one isn't going as fast as i thought! I am currently on 9 kills! (Oh dear!).
Only a few (maybe obvious) tips this week.
1. If you are going for the PVP titles look at how popular the races are on the opposite faction e.g. Humans are the most popular on the Alliance so maybe go for that first?
2. Read and watch guides on gear and tactics - this will be a great help.
3. Get geared up in PVP gear as fast as possible - it really does make a difference.
Sorry they are not very exciting this week!
Many thanks and keep up the good work!
See ya - “Ill miss you!” - Kep (and Kuhok) Argent Dawn EU

Hearthstone makes me sad
So yes what lil time I had for gaming this week has been taken by hearthstone and the drinking of my tears it keeps hurting me and I keep crawling back thinking this time it will be different. its not on a lighter note off to see the head doctors on Wednesday so hopefully they can poke my brain and see whats up. plus I will be showing up on GGW this week may god have mercy on there souls.

Greetings CAW Crew,

i hope you've had a wonderfully frightful week. It's been a busy one here as usual but thankfully a little Wow time and some R&R so it's been busy but good as well.

Attached is a short audio update for this week. It's DMF this Sunday so i need ideas of what professions to work on. i have the idea of maybe doing some cooking quests there this time round. The other professions Elvyrra has is Skinning and Mining and since She's only level 50, it's probably just going to be mining or cooking.

Anyway, forsaken love to you all and the link for my interview on Battle Chat Show is here:



I get by with a little help from my friends…
Hello Aprillian, Tedrah, Vrishna, Marzana, Rain, Big G, Juno, Grand Nagus & friends,

I think the Intro needs to be longer on the e-mails...

Hi i'm Constraxxone (constraxxele in clan of darkness), My week in wow was spent running dungeons for Valor on my rogue and some LFR for bits of the Legendary ring on my Night elf Protection warrior, i'm not able to spend a long time in game this week due to too many doctor appointments as my wife is having Complete Knee Replacement surgery on this coming Wednesday at 5:45 am, Hi hi hi, i'm still able to play a bit for today and tonight.

I ran into Rigormorte this morning and I tried to fly him to Dalaran since his US account only has about 16 mounts on it, unfortunately I few over an alliance town and since he was low level we got ganked by a level 100 night elf.  I'm only level 84 on my paladin so no amount of trying to Resurrect him or heal him was of any consequence, I was flagged as well eventually so I was doing multiple corpse runs and not able to get away at all.  I feel bad that I was not able to do something nice for Rigormorte 2 weeks in a row, he's supernice when he sends in all his audio's and I hope to run into him again... he had to run since he was waiting on people to meet him, but I hope we will meet in game again soon.

For Azeroth,

Don, a.k.a. constraxxone,

P.S. i'm crafting 2 mechanical pets I will send to the show in about 10 minutes on Epril's in game mail to giveaway in chat room :D  Rascal Bot & Pierre

Guild Updates: Saturday, 4/23 - Friday 4/29

Hi everyone - I had a good week in that I managed not to bury any challenge toons. This was an improvement over last week, when I managed a Challenge Death Trifecta in two days- killed an iron (lvl 48), a blood thirsty (24) and a pacifist (19)!

I've attached this week's guild updates - enjoy!

Purple Tears :(
Helloo sweeties,

BIg group huggles!
Sorry no audio this week - to be honest it's just been a really rough week and my voice just is not up for it!
I do not even have the words to express the loss 😨 - Prince and Chyna were 2 people I have grown up with! Watching! Listening! Enjoying the different entertainment each provided me!.
Losing public people means no less then losing someone close - there is a still a profound effect of loss and sadness regardless! 😨
My week in WoW - my Iron just hit Lvl28! I have pushed her from Lvl7 right through! Just got Frost Trap at 28 and am loving my Boar called Bacon!
Gnome Leeta went Lvl23 - 28 with some questing and dungeons!
Ran couple dungeonws on the Monks - Lvl34 - 37!
And finally had enough mats to make the Geosynchronus World Spinner! Mount #280!
So in game it has been a good week!

I just want to sign out with:-

In the immortal words of Prince from one of my favourite songs -

I never meant to cause you any sorrow
I never meant to cause you any pain
I only wanted to one time see you laughing
I only wanted to see you
Laughing in the purple rain

#RIPPrince <3

Great big huggles and much love to you all!
Love Leeta xoxo

Started the week getting Hazzl the goblin rogue set up….
Including spending a few hours trying to find the right transmog set to start farming for her.  

Can I just say that stealth is FREAKING AWESOME! So much better than corpse hopping!

Spent most of the week focusing of Draenor Pathfinder.  As of Thursday evening, I completed the Securing Draenor achievement (the apexis dailies) by purchasing the slips from the garrison vendor, completed the Hand of the Prophet (Ally side’s version of Vol’jin’s Headhunters) and as of Saturday morning, at 60-ish % of Saberstalkers and Order of the Awakened.

I want to thank Urlok from Kargath.  Orc hunter that helped me out of the crazy doing one of the last apexis dailies.  I had aggroed a rare, and then had about fifty bajillion pats pile on.  He stepped up and helped me out, and then we roamed all over the area helping each other out, taking down rares.  I couldn’t thank him beyond an emote (no horde toons on Norgannon), so I wanted to call him out in the podcast!

Ferrousel the goblin….she reached 17 and I logged out.  Went to go register her on WoW Challenges and D’OH!!!  She was flagged! I had equipped a green cloak!  Double D’OH! I did a stupid.  

Playing iron toons mostly feels natural, since that’s how I play a priest anyway.

Duvessae!  Thank you so much!
That’s the Phoenix Hatchling, Chaos Pup, Grumpling, Harbinger of Flame, Leviathian Hatchling, Sunblade Micro Defender, Toxic Wastling, and Wretched Servant.

I’ve installed Rematch and have them queued for leveling, but I’m slow.  The Wretched Servant is the first and it’s only at level 20.  Where do I get the safari hat?

So I restarted Ferrousel as a belf.  At level 5 she jumped off the spires on Bloodmist Isle (but I was smart!  It wasn’t the top level!) and she got Going Down!  Wheee!  And I’ve been catching up with the podcast….the next day I heard the one where Vrishna got the same cheevie.

Also with catching up - I’m ...caught?  It’s caught?  Got teary with Leeta when she and Rogueslayer left, heard Jeppy and Vrishna antagonize each other, laughed when Big G was on, and got a serious case of the OH-NOs! when I heard about Jeppy (and then raced over to donate cause Jeppy.)  Laughed like a madwoman when I heard the “be warned that I’m going to grab people from the chatroom to guest!”  I hadn’t heard that when I offered to be chatroom gal!  Serendipity, right? And Kep always has such good tips….he should do a “Misc Tips” segment!

Mordrain hit level 94 in Goregrond.  She’s spent most of her time leveling via her garrison missions until now.  Now it’s time to get her to 100 as well.

ElvUI Vendor Greys bag button….can be used anywhere???  Never DELETES the stuff.  :/

Downloaded a screenshot addon since I’m so bad at taking them, but I’m not sure that it’s been taking any.  It’s supposed to take screenshots for things like dings and cheevies, but I can’t find any of the shots.  Otherwise, I’d have more screenshots!



Wash, Rinse. Repeat.

And then, depression set in …..(Winger, played by Bill Murry from “Stripes”)

Where’s the rice paper to walk on ?
Quadboxing for the win !

quad-DING-ga !! (lvl 3 dings all around)
But as an aside, as I type this I’m level 5, and HAVEN’T multi-boxed yet !!! I was     one-shotting my way through the entire starting area.
I wasn’t even able to share a quest until we got to Falconwing Square !

Have a great day!  😄

My week
   Dear CAW crew, Fracta here for the first time writing in. I just wanted to say what a pleasure it has been to listen to all of you. Your podcast brings such joy to my daily driving. Of my 73 weekly podcast I listen to yours is one of my most looked forward to. Yes I said 73, with 14 hour days of driving you find you have just a few hours to listen to stuff. If you can believe it, I run out of things to listen to.
   Well let me get to my last week in WOW. A few weeks ago I started an alt army project to farm for mounts and other things. I'm lvling 6 hunters at the same time, not multi boxing. That project is 115 hours of slashed played combined and all 6 hunters reached lvl 50 this week. I'm also working on lvling the last 10 of my battle pets to lvl25. Lvled 3 of them this week, when done I'll have 850 lvl 25 battle pets. I must be insane and I have the title to prove it. Lets see what else? I was checking my mount collection and realized I have 242, 8 short of the next mount achievement. Looking to see what I could farm I realized I have not done the stables in my garrison. Perfect, that will get me 8 more mounts. So I started working my stables. As a mount farmer I can't believe I have never done the stables. I finally broke down and bought a Moose run this week to push me to 243 mounts. That set me back 30k gold. If your looking to buy a Moose run now is the time, prices will start to rise as Legion gets closer and you can't acquire it anymore.
   Well my lovelies have a wonderful week.

Just cant
Sorry for the audio tis week its just been a trying week anyway hopefully heres my audio.
Big G

Good day Aprillian - Email submission (23rd April 2016)
Good day all Kep the Gnome Mage (and Kuhok the Goblin Mage) here!
Hope all are well?
My week so far!
I managed to farm all the rare elites in Tannan and get the ‘Jungle Stalker’ achievement - one step closer to the ‘of the jungle’ title. Only got to grind out 4600 more blackfang claws! /yawn. And still hunting Xemirkol for the Predator title.
I decided to pop to the Brawler’s guild (which I had completely forgotten about) and reached rank 4 with both Kep and Kuhok, so not a bad start.
I have finally built my Gladiators Sanctum and have started PVPing in Ashran, its kinda time consuming and I haven’t even really started to Nemesis quests yet.
Mostly though this week has been plagued with computer problems! First I started to loose my sound, which I finally figured out it was my graphics drivers causing the problem - obviously! Then after I sorted that, my graphics started becoming jerky and annoying! After some more messing about I decided it was an addon causing the problem. However trying to figure out which one took a long time! And then the problem of replacement addons started. We are creatures of habbit and like what we like, so finding alternatives became time consuming. I think I have sort of sorted the problems, although I think my anti-virus software is causing problems too - which is just annoying! Don’t you just LOVE windows 10?! /sigh
Only a coupe of tips and info this week.
1. Add some extra (NPC) pets to your garrison by collecting ‘Peckers the Majestic’ found in a cave in Gorgrond (37.6, 68.6). Simply release him from his cage and he will appear wandering around in your garrison.
2. ‘Rooter the Ravenous’ also found in Gorgrond (43.6, 37.8). Simply do the quick quest he gives you and he will also appear wandering in your garrison.
3. In the same cave as Peckers (37.6, 68.6) you will find Ogres which re-spawn super quick, making this ideal for Ogre Waystone grinding. I collected over 400 stones in around 1 hour; over 60 gold hard cash and a bunch of trash and greens.    
See ya! ‘Ill miss you’ - Kep (and Kuhok)
P.S. After previously discussing the Tuskarr fishing net I discovered that the fish that are fished up by your ships count towards the ‘Draenor Angler’ achievement. So you can passively acquire the level 3 fishing blueprint through ship yard missions.

Greetings CAW Crew,

Sorry for a lack of audio this week, it's been a busy one and i've not had a chance to record an audio.

Firstly, sorry for missing sending something through last week, i had forgot to email one through and when i did remember, you were half way through recording.

Secondly, i got back in Wow last week and i've managed a few hours this past week to get in game. Elvyrra, my female undead warrior is in Badlands questing away and is level 50 something. i'm really enjoying playing Her, particularly when dealing with a group of mobs, victory rush is awesome.

So, out of game, my wife was made redunant so money has been a bit tight but we're getting through it. my old Vista machine no longer plays Wow at all so i am having to use a newer laptop we have but i don't have exclusive use of it so my play time has been pretty limited. my android phone died, the battery gave up, so i've had to go back to my old Windows Phone until i can afford an upgrade. A bit of a nightmare but it'll all work out in the end.

i have my monthly R&R this Thursday so that'll be a lot of fun and hopefully i'll get more time in game soon.

i hope you are all well and see you in game.

Greetings CAW Crew,

Just a quick update on my leveling quest.  One more down in classes, one remaining.  Uriel the monk just hit 100 yesterday.  That leaves just warrior to go in classes.  And one more race, the gnome.  Not a lot of progress on leveling, as I am still putting a lot of time into hunting transmogs.  Spending most of my time in Outland, as they have so many sets of beautiful gear.

I did manage to get all the patterns for the green iron set, and completed that for Chrysanthmum.  I have sent in a picture of her in it.

That is all for this week, will send more as I complete my tasks.

Happy Transmog,
