Good morning, CAW crew,

This is an artistic content submission for the Ctrl+Alt+WoW Podcast. My name is Mr. Bohemian. I'm a theater artist, actor, director, and playwright in Chicago. This season I'm mounting a machinima production of my full length piece: The Dreamers: A Play of Playing. The story is a reimagination of Shakespeare's Midsummer in the WoW dreamscape. The links below will provide more info for piqued interest. The Kickstarter for the animation labor will begin July 9th 6PM CST. All images and audio samples may be used for posting. I'm open for live interviews with a Yeti mic. Included is a link of my spot on WGN radio discussing social justice for taxi drivers in Chicago via phone. Thank you for considering my content for your podcast.

Mr. Bohemian

Greetings CAW Crew,

Rigar here for a bit of an update.

I've got two 110s these days. RigarMcBlade got Legion Loremaster the other week though still not unlocked the new races but I've pre-ordered BFA which is great. My main is still my Assassination Rogue - RigarMcBlade but I boosted my Arms Warrior - Kathdreyn and I'm loving playing her so much, I think she'll be my BFA main. Just something so much fun about Arms Warrior at cap level and she's a lot of fun.

I'm trying to decide what I should prioritize before BFA. I have several toons around 100+ and a lvl 95 Blood DK so plenty of alts to level but I'm finding myself farming Veiled Argunite for gear upgrades. My Warrior has two legendaries though a lot of her other gear needs increasing. I do need to farm more resources to finish class hall upgrades so my current idea is to work on Legion Loremaster for my warrior as you get a lot of resources that way. I could farm more Blood of Sargaras with my rogue who has LM and has done almost all of Suramar, 20 of those get you 4000 resources if you trade them in for Abondant Order Resources cache.

I seemed to have unlocked 1/2 of the highmountain tauren requirements but none for the other race so maybe I should concentrate on doing those?

Oh and now that we have full artifact unlocked (you only have to do that quest once an it unlocks all the traits for all specs class artifact) should I be vendoring this spare artifact power mats or will they be re-usable/viable in BFA?

I think I will have to do LM on my warrior, just loving playing her at the moment. That reminds me, must see if I can get some evening Wow time in so I can do that Mythic dungeon to unlock the "hidden power" appearance thing. (the one after you get battlelord as a warrior, I think it's for Flamereaper but I could be wrong).

Anyway, loving Wow still. I mostly get time in the morning to play with a little bit of time in the evening to farm some Veiled Argunite and some weekends I've been getting 4+ hours in. Just not sure if I'm ready to face all of Suramar on my warrior just yet so I'll do my favourite zone, Stormheim :D

Hello everyone!

Here are my audios for the week, hope you enjoy them!


Each week GrandNagus takes a closer look at some of the most useful World of Warcraft addons out there.

Addon(s) of the week: Friend List Colors
Tired of the old friend list? This addon does more than just coloring your friends by class. You can specify what kind of information is shown and how the text is colored. You may even use the note field to specify their alias and show that in the friend list - the possibilities are endless!
