Aprillian, Constraxx, Grand Nagus 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. Guild Round up from Constraxx.

If you want to join the conversations on the show, we have a live chatroom with in-game giveaways moderated by chatroom-guru Constraxx. We record Live on our page

We also have an ongoing contest. Send an email to 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.

This week in WoW:

  Log in to Claim Bananas Charity Pet

ENDING Tuesday (reset) : 

  Shadowlands Dungeon Event Ends

BEGINS Tuesday (reset):

What We've Been Doing:

TBC Classic Beta has started. Not much else to say yet.

Blizzard Shop has removed the 30, 90 and 180 day game time options.

The only game time option left is the 60 day one.

You can still sub for 1, 3 or 6 month though. Only the Game Time purchase in the Blizzard Shop is affected by this removal of game time options.

The $500,000 donation threshold has been met for every one to be able to go to the 

Blizzard Shop to claim the Bananas pet FOR FREE, even if you haven’t donated.



Claimed Bananas, Leveled 78 pets from 23 to 25, turned 35 pets to blue quality, Ran Deadmines Pet Battle dungeon twice : once in normal and once in heroic for an old bottle cap currency got mining monkey and Foe Reaper 0.9

Strategy from Xu-Fu Pet Dungeon guide : I had to load my pet collection to the web page and in return it calculated an optimum strategy with Green list being a guaranteed win and yellow list being a very likely outcome with occasional RNG mishap. 

Tanked a dungeon without any addon help other than DBM, 2 wipes on first boss of necrotic wake and only realized at 3rd boss that I did not have any talent points assigned.

Cashed in all Anima LFR, Callings, Easy quests in the Maw, still only at 8.1K anima, not enough this week to earn rank 3 in teleportation Mirrors for Revendreth.

Got a toy to resemble the Ascended from paragon cache of Bastion Reputation.  Multibox getting gear Hordeside for my warlock, priest and druid: got 3 rings, 3 belts, 3 trinkets and 3 shoulders.

Looking for new challenges, got satchel of cooperation for tanking Necrotic wake normal, one ring 110 drop at level 53, 946 gold in the bag and 4 runes worth about 3k on the AH, tanking is lucrative if the satchel is up for grabs.

Leveling cooking for 1400 gold to 60.

Leveling Enchanting for 18K to get the tenet recipes for higher Haste, Versatility, Crit and Mastery.

Grand Nagus

Forsaken Holy Priest in Classic about to ding 30.

She’s about to be able to craft her first green hood so she’s going to be really powerful then. 

Normally i go with leveling my professions according to but at this stage, 158/225 tailoring, i’m crafting all the bags i can to get as many toons as many 10 slot Small Silk Packs as possible, because, specially in Classic, you can’t have enough bag slots.

With enchanting i’m at 140/225 and i’ve arrived at the point where i can sell all the gear that requires enchanting skill 1 or 25, so i get some gold in the coffers now. So only gear that requires enchanting 50 and higher will be disenchanted for mats, aka Soul Dust and Lesser and Greater Astral Essence



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

Addon(s) of the week: HandyNotes_NPCs (Classic)
