Ctrl Alt WoW Episode 511 - Is That A Skirmish Or Are You Just Happy To See Me?
Aprillian, Constraxx, Vrishna, Rain and guest hosts discuss another week of playing World of Warcraft, Blizzard's greatest MMORPG. The show features audio segments and email submissions from our lovely listeners.
If you want to join the conversations on the show, we have a live chatroom with in-game giveaways moderated by chatroom-chick Tedrah. We record every Saturday at 6 p.m. EST / 8 a.m. (Sun. Australia’s time), on our Ustream page! http://www.ustream.tv/channel/ctrl-alt-wow-world-of-warcraft-podcast
We also have an ongoing contest. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org telling us how you play WoW, either as an altoholic 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:
I ran the Love Dungeon on level 91 Shadow Priest as a healer and even though I kept running out of mana, I whacked a mole on healbot and no one died. And then ran it again on a level 29 Fury arms warrior as tank. Makes me want to try some timewalking dungeons.2
Queue long on Alliance side, oh yeah it was tuesday, they were in schooll
-Druid level 80, 4 dungeons solo this week, no Exp buff other than the double rested. Trained for herbalism to 600, current content is Vashj’ir, Enchanting has leveled to 450, need to quest so i can DE Cataclysm greens for the Haste enchant at 455.
-Hoping to get Troll druid to 100 so i can get some Draenor Honor Kills for the Gladiator sanctum on my Rogue’s Garrison.
-Multibox farming herbs in Cataclysm areas, pick the herb twice on separate servers to speed up collection, the Demon Hunter on Earthen Ring 1 shots everything.
- Skirmish 1/10 on the rogue, no idea how people complete this quest, my rogue is 2 or 3 shot squishy, even with Protection warrior the Defensive seem almost useless against Druid, Warlock, Pally and Demon Hunter. Can’t vanish against Demon Hunter, popular Class in Arena Skirmishes.
- World Quest Group Finder! ADD-On has had an update Robou has brought the latest version 0.21.3 to patch 7.1.5, the ADD-On asks you if you wish to list or Join a premade group upon entering an area and once you’ve completed the quest the ADD-On will ask you if you wish to leave the group or stay a bit longer to help teammate complete their objectives. This ADD-On was mentioned on “The Training Dummies” podcast a few weeks ago, big shout out to them for mentioning it on their show.
- Grinding Hard for Emissaries Caches on my main to aquire essences of Aman-Thul to get the legendary gloves upgraded to 940 from 910, currently sitting at 38, started the week at 25, a few LFR’s left to run as well
- Got 2 set pieces drop in 3rd wing of Nitehold, one was a duplicate with Indestructible buff, so some nice upgrades, rocking out my 2 piece bonus with 2 legendaries at the moment iLvl 872, using AskMrRobot ADD-On for best in bag feature on the Premium account.
Hope all is well. I got a new/used desktop! I can now move on from my old Windows Vista, duo core 32bit system, 3 gigs ram, and ATI 3200 graphics card to an i5, 16 gig ram, GTX 970 graphics card, with Windows 10. I know it's not the best or highest specs, but it is far FAR better than what I had and it was at a good price, so I'm calling that a win.
I haven't actually taken the computer out of the box yet, that's this weekend's task. Hopefully. If all goes well I should be able to be playing WoW on a quality far better than the "not even toaster" quality I had before. Maybe I won't lag during world bosses anymore.
Today's clip is from episode 291, and it's actually just Junno's segment. I was entertained, and I hope you are too. I'll have more clips from 291 next week :)
Not dead just busy
Sorry for the lack of audio and or feed back on recent shows I'm still listening just been busy with work and real life stuff. Mostly just been playing hearthstone and updating my add ons on the gaming front on the work front we had our head cook go so it's been all hands on deck for a few weeks now. Plus the trip home cost me another week of gaming got to play with farm animals thoe and play with some loud toys. My lil brother got a lil upset as I was better with the loud toys than he and it's been almost ten years since I last played with one. On a completely different subject Dreams is once again on the look out for co-hosts for her show oh my goodness not another podcast. I of course once again offered my services she is slightly hesitant to have me on again so I'm asking all the CaW fans to submit to @omgnap on twitter and email@example.com so that dreams can find a spot for me on the show #DreamsGspot or subject secure the G spot so that way she will know you want me on her show.
P.s that last part may be edited from the podcast but hopefully the live listens take up the cause
For the Horde
For the alliance
For the Sandgropers
And for helping Big G get a spot on Dreams podcast
Each week GrandNagus takes a closer look at some of the most useful World of Warcraft addons out there.
