What We've Been Doing:



Aprillian




Constrax (played by Kyle this week)

Still leveling :)

Quilava (mage) hit 70, still questing in Shadowmoon Valley.  Trying out WoW Pro addon, getting used to it. According to the addon I have completed about 195 out of 302 quests for the questing achievement.
Found neat thing while leveling professions.  Tailors can get easy levels with turning frostweave cloth into bolts! Forgot when it unlocks (275?) but am currently at 340 in tailoring and “Bolt of Frostweave” is still orange for instant levels.  Problem is sometimes AH prices can be absurd for frostweave - one day I checked and they wanted around 10++ gold per cloth, but today it’s more reasonable at about a gold or less per cloth. Also new scaling makes “naturally” leveling professions more feasible - I can stick around in a zone for iron or whatever without drastically outleveling it.
Sidenote, if you made Scryer/Aldor angry, don’t go and pay them a visit.  Oops!
Lastly did some invasions with my paladin - almost to 109!

Grand Nagus

Addon Spotlight and Transmog: DressUp has issues with some other transmog addons

Went through Blackwing Lair 8 times this week to finally get the transmog item i have been looking for for years! Here is my DK with the sword(s) transmoged:

Also i finally found a transmog that i really like for my shaman, she just server transfered to her new home.
Working on my Jewelcrafter to get all the designs i can get and end up with Jewelcrafting
At skill 815, since she’s a Draenai = +15 to JC Skill.

Constrax (played by Kyle)

Kyle filling in while Constrax gets better (tons of healthy vibes and thoughts your way!!)


Lots of leveling in Outland.  Quilava (mage) finished Terokkar Forest quests and working on Shadowmoon Valley quests.  Questing a little bit harder with the new scaling, and can’t easily solo group quests. But still fun!
Avataur (shaman) having fun in Stranglethorn.
Created new toon, Death Knight, and he finished Zangarmarsh quests and mostly done with Nagrand quest.  Can’t solo Ring of Blood at level anymore!
My hunter Grettah is questing in Northrend right now, because I just can’t bring myself to do Hellfire Peninsula again so soon.


Grand Nagus

Finally got stuff set up, new hardware and a BfA Alpha invite.
Defeated Aggramaar on Heroic today, one more boss to go to reach Ahead of the curve.
Created a Gnome Monk today

Hello everyone!


Hope you all have had a great week!  I have a quick audio to talk about mine :)


Today's Blast from the Past comes to you from episode 330.  Here's a link to the show notes for episode 330 if anyone wants to see the Necronomicon pictures:




Finally, there was a request a few weeks ago for a particular episode to use as a Blast from the Past.  I attached a picture as a teaser :) This one should be starting next week.


Enjoy!

Addon of the week: Minimap Button Frame, a addon i’ve been using for years, have talked about on previous shows and that got a update after 3 years earlier this week
If you don’t want to use a bar addon and you think your minmap is overflowing with addon icons, this addon is ideal for you, it collects all the addon buttons and puts them into a frame that can be made to close if you need the space.

Darkmoon Fair - Leveling Worgen Mage to 81 on Earthen Ring on 2nd account
Farming the Auction house for Mats
Bug / Fix for Order Hall Resources with the Legion App. 2400 vs 1800 for 12 bloods of sargeras at 200%
Secrets Discord from the training Dummies Episode 200, map overlay for path in vashj’ir

Grand Nagus


Changes in transmog availability regarding levels of gear vs chraracter levels.
Level 70 and 80 sets transmogable at lvl 60, if you buy a item at lower level
Say lvl 60 that’s equippable at lvl 80 and it’s BoP, it will be transmogable as soon as you bought it and it will be added to your collection.
Tier pieces can’t be bought with tokens as far as i know, since you need to be at level to buy the tokens in old Dalaran or obviously be at level to have them drop in a raid that you can only enter if you are at level.

Boosted my little Gnome Hunter.

Hello everyone!

Hope you have all had a great week!  We're just wrapping up our second trimester at the high school, and as you read this we will be starting our spring break.  Yay! That means lots of WoW time in my future.

This week's blast from the past are more clips from episode 329.  Enjoy!

Sorry for the lack of audio just didn’t feel up to it went home earlier this week and caught up with Maiev shadow puppy and Mercy was happy both remembered me well both were torn between food and daddy. I also got the results back from my last cancer check and it wasn’t good back in two years to see if the cancer comes back and I also may have HFE (hereditary haemochromatosis). Basicly I have to much iron in my blood I go for the test on Monday if I can to see if I do have it as both my grandmother and father have it. Reading up on it I meet some of the symptoms which tend to line up with what I’ve been seeing the physc for. In game I’ve been playing HoTs and a lil Herthstone and that’s about it.

For the Horde

For the Alaince

For the Sandgropers

And for doing a audio next week
