Ctrl Alt WoW Episode 741 - 9.2 Love

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 chat room 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 be placed in a drawing for a WoW Pet or an Authenticator.

Lead Rewards Designer Russ Petersen Announces Last Day at Blizzard Entertainment - Feb. 11th was his last day.

One thing i didn’t realize is the fact that both Font of Ephemeral Power and Decanter of Untapped Potential are NOT account wide items, but rather personal BoP epic quality items, so the only item you can ship to other toons is still the base iLvl 200 item you buy in Oribos. I wonder what the range of taught conduits is.

New Blizzard Gear Store is LIVE.

Notice that the US store has a free shipping deal going on as of recording of this episode, the UK store DOESN’T.

Illidan, Jaina and Sylvanas statues have seen a price increase. Old: $400. New: $600.

EU people, old store € currency, new store £ currency, so way more expensive now.

FFXIV Online Store has a sale.

What We've Been Doing:



Grand Nagus

Personal WoW points:

Renown: New patch, no new catchup level?

Pre-9.2: Catchup to Renown 40. Why no Renown 70 or 80 catchup item upgrade?

Renown is GONE! No more Renown increase, so why not “skip” it all together on alts?

A point on addons and Overwolfs purchase of Curse.

Switched to WoWUp.

Number of addons just over 200 at that time.

Now I'm down to 43 Retail WoW addons installed that are supported.

Overwolf has not cut API access for WoWUp yet.

What does that tell us about acceptance of Overwolf in the addon community of WoW?

Nothing good i’d say, guessing here.


Finally switched to my new ISP.


Letter from the Developers the other day, and i can’t watch it due to spoilers.

Focussed on finishing the MSQ now so I can watch it.


Warrior job: 87;  Bard job: 87.

4 squadron members at 60 (max level). Half of the roster is done.

Finished the Pixie Beast Tribe story, and reputation and got a new mount.

Unlocked flying in the first EW zone.

Found a way to burn Grand Company seals: Mount/minion boxes. 20.000 per box with a random mount or minion in them.

Two different ones available: ARR/HW content and StB content.

Sold some more Venture loot on the Market Board today

Squadron member classes and composition.

Really happy with the day's work. That brings my total sales on this Retainer to The first Retainer, out of two selling actively, to crack the 1 million gil mark.

Lost Ark:

Didn’t play much, other than collecting the login rewards most days.

It’s gonna be a game that I'll play when I feel like it, not now though.




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