What We've Been Doing:
AprillianAfter grinding Borean Leather on Auruk for several days, I was surprised at how cheap it was on the AH.
Tues servers were up, ruined my plans to do housework. Could not find Eternal fire on ER. Recorded The Addicted
Leveled in Eversong Woods, Tanked Ragefire Chasm as raid leader. I marked and everything.
Spent several days levelling with BF on RAF. Fun & frustrating at the same time. Did some sugar daddying, i.e. bags and stuff, scrolls and enchants
SFK - didn't want to be run through, interesting.
Fishing Totem? Some shaman putting down totems in Dal sewers while Epril & Aprillian did fishing dilies - Auruk doesn't get it anymore
Outlevelling quests like crazy.
Purplevein joined me Hellfire Ramparts.
Can't figure out how to stop ram.
Level 26 warrior doesn't have mount, LOL
AshayoVyv got a 2nd Green Proto Drake mount from Oracles!
Raiding - Ulduar 10 man
Mimiron - one second away from winning, but the head died too soon and all 3 parts respawned. :(
Got him down - [The Keepers of Ulduar] achievement
Got Verax down to about 20%
ToC 25 man - Asheal
Northrend Beasts and Lord Jaraxxus down.
Tried faction champions - like a PvP fight. Failed badly! Went to VoA to kick butt.
Pudendal tanked Old Hillsbrad. Couldn't find Don Carlos.
Tanked Shadow Labs - 5 tries on Murmur before we got him. Tough with DK tank - can't charge back in. Tempeste had to attack with a fishing pole because she de'ed her staff.
Dinged 70 on slabs quest hand ins
Kara key chain - Coilfang, Tempest Key (needed a rogue), Black Morass
- Started with [Strange Brew] (9 brews) , and got [It's Happy Hour Somewhere] ( 25 beverages ) in the process
- Brewfest Diet - all available at the brewfest.
- Down with the Dark Iron - Defense Brewfest against the dark iron dwarves.
- Disturbing the Peace - Dance drunk with 3 Brewfest clothes on in Dalaran. Already had them in teh bank.
- Drunken Stupor - Jump off Scryer tier (just to right of lift)
Coren finished it off - 310% Violet Proto-Drake!
Sigurn won Kodo mount
PoH Karazahn - Amazingly easy despite not having high level toons. Pulled three groups of mobs without wiping. Pulled elite packs outside
Morose without wiping. (We did wipe, but only because I took too close a look at Maiden)
Got the new NCP (Pint-sized Elekk) for 100 tokens without doing any ram racing at all. Doing the initial intro quest , killing Coren and doing the Pink Elekks quest is enough.

Hey Ctrl Alt WoW crew, Zebestes here!
When I heard Glanthur talking about the lore segment during episode 132, I was ecstatic! With all the people that know absolutely nothing about the lore, it'll be educating the masses! It also got me thinking.... I might be able to help Glanthur-if he wants or needs it- because I'm a bit of a lore nerd and I don't have an active subscription at the moment since days only have 24 hours in them... sigh... Anyway, if G-dawg (gosh I hope Ashayo reads this) wants some help, I'm here!

hey guys, makiling here,
i just wanted to share a tip when doing Dangerously Delicious to avoid being ganked by alliance. if you go to the horde FP in wintergrasp, you will notice a spirit healer on a ledge behind the FP. what you do is you move near the spirit healer to get the spiritual immunity buff and fish from there. you might not reach the water with every swing of your fishing pole, but you can reach it form there and you will definitely be safe form ganking.
i've been leveling my priest, and had recently dinged 68. i've been flying around northrend, and i'm pretty sure i will be dinging form all the flying i've been doing. i cant wait for her to get to 70 so i can get an epic flyer for her as well.
thats all for now, keep up the good work!

Hey CAW crew,
You guys do a fantastic job on the podcast, I only started listening to podcasts a few months ago to alleviate some boredom at work and it’s boiled down to you guys and the BoE crew that I listen to first ;p This email was actually going to be in response to Glanthur’s idea about a lore part of the show but it felt too much like shadey business to write only to him so I thought I’d write you all, seeing as how I’ve been wanting to for a few weeks anyway.
I play a Tauren bear tank slash resto druid on the US Nagrand server and tune in faithfully every week from the sunny east coast of Australia to listen in. In game at the moment I am having a blast on my (atm level 50) troll shammy, healing my way through low level dungeons and kicking ass in BGs as enhance. Recently I completed the Uldum quest chain, which starts at the end of uldaman and sends you back and forth between Tanaris and Thunder Bluff, culminating in a (far too short and abrupt) ending at the gates of Uldum in southern Tanaris. I remember doing this quest the first time on my mage and being in awe the whole time, it remains one of my favourite quest chains in game and I found it doubly interesting in light of the Cataclysm news and Uldum becoming a playable zone, which is one of the things I am most looking forward to.
I think this would be an awesome topic to cover for Glanthur, the lore of Uldum; it’s significance in game at the moment and what role it might play in the future expansion. One thing that intrigued me specifically was that the statue who admits entrance to the gates reveals at some point in the quest text that all the authorization disks to grant entrance are currently given out and no more will be for the time being, I would love to know if there is any more info on who holds these disks or how that might be implemented when the zone opens, I am really hoping it wont be that they simply creak ajar and anyone can just mosey through. Anyway, I was planning on wiki’ing it anyway but if I can mooch off Glanthur’s (brilliant) new idea then I’m all for that ;p
I had to laugh aprillian when you were telling us about David’s escapades in wow, sounded just like me at that level, I was concerned about the most inconsequential things haha, I miss those days of being overwhelmed by everything.
Anyway, I’m at work so I’ll get kicked in the box if they catch me sending illicit emails ;p Keep up the good work guys, Till next time.
PS I found myself getting all defensive when you got that two star review ;p Don’t listen to him, you guys are kick ass.

Greetings Cntrl Alt Wow
I would like to say thank you, your podcast helped pull me thru the withdrawls during the week that BOE didn't put out a podcast. I never miss your podcast and would have to say you are my second favorite podcast right behind BOE. I hope you don't mind being in second place.
I think first off I would like to say that person who gave you the 2 star rating, and called Glanthur childish clearly hasn't listened to many of your podcasts. I think perhaps he/she needs to stop dipping into Aprillian's Medication. While all of you rock, Glanthur is the voice of the Alliance and I hope he never converts his Dwarf to the horde. I know I could never change my main to a dirty horde. With that said I do love playing a horde toon in the "Pants on Head" guild, but I can't wait to level another toon so I can kill off my Death Knight. I hate Death Knights! I am currently leveling a Druid, a Paladin, and a Rogue and when one of them reaches 80 I will take great pride in deleting my Death Knight. Do any of you have classes that you just can't stand playing?
I am something of an Altaholic I have 5 level 80's and another 8 toons over level 30, I have never multiboxed and don't think I will start, but if anything tempts me to try it it is your podcast. I have played every class and I would have to say that Druids are my favorite, and Death Knights are my least favorite. What class would each of you say is your favorite class to play?
Finally I would just like to say that Aprillian you need to "come out of the closet"

Email #C from Bidkar
Greetings Glanthur, Ashayo and Aprillian.
Bidkar, undead mage on the Borean Tundra server here. This week Bidkar actually did some of his unfinished quests in Storm Peaks plus his dailies. I'm beginning to understand why players express some disinterest in dailies. Bidkar finally is exalted with the Kaluak. Heck will freeze over before I do those quests again on this toon. I picked up the epic fishing pole, the penguin pet and the pattern for the 32 slot herb bag.
The paladin leveled from 70 to 73 the hard way. He keeps getting locked into combat and can't mount, bandage, or drink potions. I tried running all the way across the zone to break combat, that did not work either. The only way I can break combat is to hearth. Trust me after doing that a few times, it gets old. Blizzard only gives me the standard "Game is functioning as intended". I will refrain from saying what I think of that response since Ctrl Alt Wow is not Bind on Equip.
I did find an interesting glitch in the game though. I picked up the "They Grow up So Fast" raptor mount quest while I was in Un'Goro Crater, but didn't do anything with it. While I was at Agmar's Hammer in Northrend I did the quest where you go to the village and kill the bugs by the Azol Nerub. When I killed the bug mobs in the village, it counted as the venom blood from the "They Grow up So Fast" quest. I was splashed 20 times for the Un'Goro quest in Northrend. An interesting glitch to be sure.
I was excited about being a pirate for a day too. I was transformed in Booty Bay and it went fine. Then I ported to Dalaran and rode the taxi to Wymrest. After the taxi ride was done, I lost the pirate costume buff. /Spit on all this game bugging.
I appreciate winning last week, but I want you to keep the prize and give it to someone else. There are more people out there who need it more than I do. It was exciting to win, that was enough for me.
For Glanthur and For the Horde!
Bidkar and his many alts

Subject: An Exciting Couple of Weeks
Hey Aprillian, Ahsayo, and Glanthur (in alphabetical order),
Email #7 from Steven (Also sent to the Instance)
Hey Guys what's up,
With all this talk like a pirate stuff going on it made me think. When the Goblins become part of the horde. Will horde player still be able to gain rep with the Bloodsail Buccaneers? And if you flip it will the Alliance become friends with them? Will the Bloodsails setup a port in booty bay for the Alliance to go to now?
Email #8 from Turbos
Sorry for not emailing in quite some time, but don't worry I haven't missed an episode. I've just had a lot of work lately. Anyways in case you don't remember I was dual boxing my rogue and a druid, well, since then I hit level 80 on my rogue and dropped my druid. I plan on rolling a new troll druid when cataclysm comes out. In the druids stead I went back to leveling up my warlock. Man I missed leveling her!
Just a few random comments since it's been a while.
Aprillian you really sounded great on the addicted podcasts and boe (which I have added to my podcast listening regime). Have you guys ever thought of doing a biweekly podcast? What about a show forum? I know there are a lot of us avid CAW fans!
Grats Ashayo on the new mount!!
Glanthur my heart goes out to you, (even though you're alliance) I have been thinking about you and your father alot. My fiance and I went through a hard family time recently and I know how hard it can be. Also, I can't wait for your new lore segment and if you ever need any help at all with anything lore lemme know. I'm happy to help!
Now for the question:
I know none of you have a rogue main, but I thought maybe you or some of the listeners might have some suggestions. Since I'm a new 80 I've been trying to get geared up a bit, but I'm in a guild with just myself, my fiance and her sister, so I'm not really raiding anything anytime soon. In the meantime I have been doing a lot of argent tournament and pvp and I'm in mostly epics (well maybe welfare epics), but I noticed my dps really isn't where it should be around (1600). If you have any suggestions or ideas I'm Turbos on Drak'tharon in the armory.
Well best be getting back to the housework :cough: brewfest :cough:
Thanks again for the mini I keep it by my monitor and think of you guys everytime I play.
P.S. Ever think about rocking the Explicit tag?
