Ctrl Alt WoW Episode 175 - One Hundred Seventy Five Beers On the Wall

Aprillian, Ashayo, Virshna and Jeppy discuss another week of playing World of Warcraft, Blizzard's great MMORPG. Contest Ongoing send an email to telling us how you play WoW, either as an altaholic or dealing with it in your family life to being placed in a drawing for a month free of WoW or a $10 iTunes Gift Card or an Authenticator.

Thanks to Nevikjames for the prizes for his "Pet Story" Contest. I don't know if we've mentioned but Nevijames has a very informative blog at We are all amazed at the brilliance that is Nevikjames and thank him for his contributions to Ctrl Alt WoW.

What We've Been Doing:
Did you know you can level combat skills by killing bunnies?
Thank you Jeppy for showing me how I can see my toons in the Armory. Once you’ve signed in, and
Ran my level 27 Pally Palapril in ER through SM with Auruk Level 80 Hunter. Was a blast. Palapril got a level and a half. Decided to do some cloth turn ins after Palapril got into unrested xp. Needed flight paths but only mage on same account. Grouped with mage, Auruk & Palapril. Logged off of Palapril, onto Tiiaa and move her to where I last had Palapril. Then I create a Portal, log off Tiiaa and onto Palapril. She clicks on the portal and bamm, she’s at the next city.

New interface for accounts at
Loving my new spreadsheet. Just have to be aware that the toons checked at the top of the list in the armory aren’t in the list on the tabs.

Used some Triumph badges to buy heirlooms
In random Heroic with Mage. Flying winged things seemed to be fighting for mage?
Used Auruk to run Palapril through SM over and over again. Then looked at loot table and thought it was silly. Listing to Outlandish, think I should farm for runecloth.
Aprillian & Vrishna
Finally got to play Thursday, ran DM twice, trying to get lower level RAF toons to 15 so they can Random. Lots of dingage
2 sets of pally twins are so much fun ! But I need to refer MYSELF!!!!


Crazy Train - Blood Princes 1-shot, 3% wipe on Blood Queen then downed her.
After reset, ICC buff now at 30%
Got [The Plagueworks] - downed Putricide

DwP ventured back into Ruby Sanctum and got our first kill of Halion. Won [Misbegotten Belt]

"Dual-boxed" FL on Ashayo/Anomander - not really, since I just drove a bike

Dual-boxed VoA on Ashayo/Asheal - won shadow priest gloves


Ano tanked Nexus and despite chatting and apologising for deaths and being undergeared, the rest of the party did not utter a single word.

Pud tanked CoS and Storme was having trouble not pulling aggro and died. A little another dps died after pulling aggro. On the timelord boss, Storme had to ice block after pulling aggro again. It was at this point that I realised I was not in frost presence!


Got exalted with Horde Expedition and bought MechanoHog schematic. Had no idea there was an upstairs at the Inn at Vengeance Landing

Jekle doing PvP to get the neckpiece in prep for raiding! WG - win ; AB - loss, AV - loss, WSG - loss, WG - win. Then remembered that Wintergrasp Commendations are BoA and Ashayo had heaps of stonekeeper shards. After consideration of haste vs spirit vs mp5, went with haste. Got the [Epic] achievement! (min 213)

Beta-ing. Started in Mount Hyjal, delved into some of the starter areas to see what’s changed. Took a poke at the guild changes, but still VERY buggy


Asheal - 258 belt from Ruby Sanctum. Tier-10 shoulder and chest - now has 4 set tier bonus
Jekle - had i245 chest made to prep for raiding. Bought t10 shoulders with frost emblems.


Email #1 from Mike
Howdy fine people of ctrlaltwow, it's you friend and humor bringer, Mike again.

This email is a bit of corrections from what was said last week. First and foremost... my death knight's name.

It is spelled I K I T S U K E N E and pronounced Eh-kit-skin-ay. NOT I-kite-zucchinis.

Second was a fault of my own. I gave you the wrong name for the power leveling option. What I said was "power level her in Icecrown on the Fallen Heroes." What I should have said was power level her in Icecrown on the Converted Heroes which are just slightly left of the center of Icecrown. Really quite a nice place to level as the mobs are all lvl 78-79, have little hp, and come in packs of 7-8 mobs per group with the ability to pull 3-4 groups at once. There are bad sides to this, as they do have the ability to use Mortal Strike, and their Demoralizing Shout also reduces movement speed by 50%, so between daze and DShout you're always running at 50% speed. Tedious yes but they do grant quite a bit of experience per kill and are not hard at all to tank as well as give quite a large amount of Frostweave Cloth, grey items, and gold. Best done with the vendor mount (16kg) but doable with any regular 100% speed land mount.

Considering she enjoyed your response so much I'm going to try to attach an audio response to this email so that you can hear the voices behind the "shiny bubble buttons". More on that at the end of the email.

For now, let us discuss the difficulties of leveling a caster with no self healing abilities. My favorite target for this conversation... the Mage. Yes, I know that mages can glyph for a self-healing Evocation, but that's a 3 min cd that doesn't always make itself available when you need it. Blizz needs to stop forcing mages to level first aid to have combat healing! It's so annoying, especially since wool cloth is like 20g a stack on LS! Would it kill them to allow mages to have an armor that heals them when they take a certain amount of damage? They have one that freezes enemies... on that restores mana quickly, one that increases crit, and one that absorbs elemental damage. Why not have an absorbing shield that heals you after it absorbs a couple thousand points of damage? It sorta makes sense... absorbing damage and turning it into an invigorating stream of magic.

Or we could speak of the vastly under-represented Female Tauren Warriors. I don't think there's a level 80 Female Tauren Warrior on Laughing Skull at all. It's pitiful... however I cannot bring myself to make one because I am a guy.

Anyway, this email has become almost as long as my last and I feel that it is now time to stop typing and start my little voice recording.

Unfortunately, I cannot locate a suitable voice recording software and I also do not know which format you would wish to be sent a sound recording in. Alas, you shall have to wait until I find such details out.

As always FOR THE HORDE!!!

This message brought to you by your favorite neighborhood resto Shammy, Mike of Laughing Skull.

Live long and punt gnomes!

Email #A from Makiling
Hey guys, makiling here

I just listened to your latest episode, and I just want to send everyone a big grats for all your in game achievements!

I haven't been playing a lot of wow in the past few weeks because my wife decided to buy a wii after she saw that it had wii fit and that you can use it to exercise indoors when the weather is bad. Naturally, I saw it as an opportunity to try out the rpg and arcade games on the console, so I went and picked up a couple of games for it. Also, playing the mario games is a nice way of spending time with the wifey :)

But my wow toons haven't been completely neglected. Earlier this month I made a mage on earthen ring and got her in AIE! Meanwhile my Lvl 80 mage is 5 achievements short of getting the red proto drake after knocking out the remaining occulus achievements the other day. Will I be able to get the drake anytime soon? Only time Wiill tell..

I personally got bummed out with the blue post saying that blizzard isn't planning on making bind on account items mailable across realms anytime soon. But I'm really excited with all the other changes coming in cataclysm, particularly with the changes in the talent trees.

So that's it from me for now. I may not be playing much wow, but I'm really enjoying all the wow podcasts. Keep up the good work!

Email # One / Chocobo Contest

I’m hiding in the back of Kael'thas Sunstrider’s chambers, watching the battle. 2 noble elves, fighting the insanity of Kael’thas. He is a crazed madman. He doesn’t realize that his thoughts that he is helping his “people” are only bringing about their destruction. He has torn The Blood Elves (which he named) apart and there were few enough of them as it is.

These 2 - they must be Blood Elves - Kalem & Allecia are here to rectify his wrongs; with his life!

They have engaged; 2 puny elves against Kael’thas Sunstrider, Lord of the Elves. How do they think they can beat him? They are battling mightily though…

Oh no, He has summoned my Mother to the fray! I don’t want her to die, but Kael’thas cannot win. MUST not win! My heart mourns for her as she goes down. I know she will be back, but it is never easy to see your parent struck down in battle.

The mighty heroes are battling fiercely! Maybe these 2 noble Blood Elves will be victorious! Kael’thas is harsh, there is never any mercy, only dying. I have seen so much dying…

Oh look out, he has summoned his magical fire & changed the gravity. Look out, those orbs will BURN!

I can’t watch…

What’s this? Kael’thas is getting tired? Can it be? He’s on his knees, he’s exhausted… PUSH TO END HIM, pull out all of your reserves Noble Kalem and Gracious Allecia!

They did it, he’s down! Kalem & Allecia have won! We are no longer tied to Kael’thas and the Isle of Quel’Danas. We are FREE!

“Kalem, take me with you, it would be my honor to travel with you and be your companion for all of eternity. You have done a huge service for your people and for me who has been trapped here all this time. I am a phoenix and I will always be here”

Thus ends the story of Kalem’s (and Allecia’s truth be known) favorite companion pet, the Phoenix Hatchling.

Should I be lucky enough to win, I would like the little horde baby windrider. They are both cute as all heck, but we are “For the Horde” after all. ;)

Big hugs and kisses,


P.S. (Again, if I am lucky/honored enough to win) I will be gifting the pet to my husband (Kalem) who is an avid pet collector. He loves having pets and is always pulling various ones out to match whatever situation. It’s adorable!

Email # B from Chol

Hey... can I please have the in-game pet?



Email #C from Acaldraa
Hello ctrl alt wowers,

Acaldraa here with my email that I have finally gotten around to. It's been quite a while (3 weeks gasp). I have been in another country, raiding ICC 10/25 on two toons and all sorts of other things! The Dominican Republic was pretty amazing. It was really an eye opener about what people are going through and how amazingly privileged I am to be able to spend upwards or 20 hours a week playing a video game while kids my age spend that time getting water from a river 2 hours away. I really gave me a different perspective of the world and how us, the privileged minority lives.
On a less sobering note, I raided ICC 25 with Cloudy with a Chance of Purples on the paladin and Could never reach the Top Shelve of my DK. Then pugged 10's by myself. Pretty successful with both pugs getting down Professor Putrid and Princes. In other in-game news, I bought myself the 16k gold vendor Mammoth. It was a big investment but worth it for sure! Found many a time to use it so far in raids and in general. Lastly, I recently started a hunter, "Sandorson" and decked him out in every heirloom around!
With a slight touch of real life to finish it out, I am/have been on vacation through the end of July. No Warcraft has been quite interesting. Missing 6 raids one of which might be a Lich King kill is pretty frustrating but being some where warm is nice :)
Well that's all for now and it has really been a pleasure catching up with all of you in-game and on the podcast


P.S. Ashayo, can't wait to start raiding with y'all on DwP on my DK starting in August :)

P.P.S. Chipped teeth are never fun :(

Email #2 from Tuggboat


Tuggboat here- I've been leveking a 35 nelf druid and have been having a blast!
I've been questing and also using the random dungeon finder to lvl, but have run into a big problem: Lots of times I do farming or 2-3 dungeons in a row and my bags will be stuffed full of junk. I sell it all to the vendor but then he is full for a long time too. You used to just be able to log out and clear it, but now that junk hangs around for hours. How does the Ctrl alt wow crew handle this hurdle to big $$ making?? I dont like to use a lot of mods but I hope you guys know what I can do.


Email #D from Kurly
I hope all is well and that you have all had a great week!! As Aprillian knows its been hot as all hell here in New England.....all the more reason to hide in an air conditioned room with all the shades down, playing WOW like trog in a cave....WORKS FOR ME!!

I while ago I transferred on of my Alliance 80's to a PVP server and and faction changed her to Horde. of my founding toons.....the Night Elf female, Viranelda, is now a Tauren on Ysondre. I have been using her to outfit my toonlings on my guild over there and and it has been a very different experience as far as PVP have been winning, however, the queue for a random battleground can be a long as 12 - 16 minutes....where on the Alliance its fairly instant.

My Palladin, Annamia, is about 50% through 79, and I had respec'd her prot and heals, and I have to say that am not sure tanking is my thing. I have been told by some of my guildees that I tank just fine and that any issue I would have would be DPS attacking the wrong target.....maybe I should be marking them?.....Lord

I am still holding out hope that I get selected for the Beeta. I (like a fool) have been watching a lot of Cataclysm video on youtube and I would really like to dig in!! I have a compulsive need to know what each races' starting pet is going be.

Thanks so much to Ashayo for throwing the guild invite to my little rogue, Bootlika, on Earthen ring....I have three other toons I want in there but they are all under level 10, so I have a mission to level them all by August.

You all have a wonderful day....LOVENHUGS!!


Email #3 from Ruker

Hello Control Alt Wow crew. Last week my realm had a 24 hour plus plus plus maintenance package. I decided to roll a Horde character, since I have never played non-Alliance. I rolled a troll priest on the Jellybean realm. What a cool place, day is night and night is day. I live in Virginia near Washington DC, by the way. A lot of crude character names and beer talk in chat. My kind of place. Although I feel sorry for all the Aussies with broken keyboards, you know with Caps-Lock stuck on. I'm getting used to earthtones and the grunting NPCs of the Horde. I'll keep at it and hopefully one day I will be honored with the privilege of wearing my pants on my head. Thanks. I love the show. For the Horde...this time. Ruker Dwarf priest and Rucker Troll priest.

Email Pet Story B from LizTailor

Hello fellow altaholics!
When I first went to Dalaran, I was in the sewers and saw that poor little rat sniffing behind the grate. I asked my honey Melchezadek, "I want that rat! How do i get him outta there?"
She said you fished him up..Okay, I thought , and started trying to cast my fishing line through the luck! She then informed me that No, you have to sit there and fish and it's a rare drop.
Oh, right. Of course it is..SO..after that i would randomly try cast after cast wishing and didnt help that I would see that rat behind the grate when i would pass by. OOOhhhhh I wanted that rat!
So months went by and I kinda gave up. We started playing our horde toons and they hadnt made it to Dal yet, so more time went by. So a few weeks ago, we started playing those toons..I love playing Liz (a night elf rogue), but it wasnt easy leveling her! I usually play casters and getting right in there fighting kinda freaks me out. Anyways, I believe we took the fishing quest, and it was "jewel of the sewers" I drop my line in the water. Sewer carp. great. Driftwood. sigh.
And happened. I couldnt believe it! It cant be true! "GASP! Oh MY GAWD!" I think Melchezedek jumped a mile.( I usually do that when were about to die.) Ta-DAA! giant sewer rat!
Oh Happy Day!
SO now i love my rat..i also give him those papa hummels pet biscuits and make him Gigantic. Its hysterical. He's huge. Recently, I bought him a leash. lol. I dont know, its just those little things that makes it fun to play WoW. Someone in Stormwind said "what's his name?"
Richard Burton, of course!

for the horde and for the alliance,
night elf rogue
Radikal Faeries guild :)

... take one down, pass it around, one-hundred seventy-four beers on the wall


Oh hi there JAVA, didn't see you come in.

You'll have to excuse me, you see I've been getting a little too much into playing as a dwarf.

"Waitress, BEER!"

I swear I actually play better as a dwarf rogue while inebriated. The beer helps me be more stealthy.

*Gulp* *Gulp*

/slam empty stein on table

"Waitress, ANOTHER!"

As I was saying, beer in no way hinders my rogue'sh like movethings. It helps me kill faster.
*Gulp* *Gulp*

/slam empty stein on table

You know, I really think you guys are grrrreeeeat. *hic* I love *hic* you guys

*hic* The way you guys talk *hic* about, y'know, that Warcraft stuff *hic* Is really funny.

Hahahahehehe. *hic* You crack me up.

"Waaayyydress, a-nutter bear pwease!"


Ohhhhhhh. When did your twins *hic* come in? There musst be fooour of you.


o/` one-something something beers on the hall, one-something beers ... tack em

down, paste it pound ... >thud< Nevik PS. Remember folks, drink in moderation. This skit was funnier in my head. Email #F Bidcar Greetings fellow travelers of Azeroth, Bidkar formerly living practitioner of magics, here. Last week my druid Joash dinged 80. He was well chuffed as Jeppy would say. I also picked up the epic flying for him. Flying about as a druid simply cannot be put into words. I usually do not buy epic flying since the normal flying speed seems to be adequate since Blizzard bumped it up a bit, but I love flying around as a druid. The investment is well worth it. Joash also hit exalted with the Sons of Hodir, Thunderbluff and Orgrimmar. This week my shadow priest Sagrado went from 72 to 77. I am enjoying the priest experience immensely. He's now hanging out at the Argent Tournament and starting the quests in K3 leading to the Sons of Hodir quest line. He has 450 in mining now and 426 in Engineering. You may have been able to surmise that my fervor for Wrath has been rekindled. I think I must have been burned out on Wrath and just needed the break that RAF provided. I feel sorry for Blizzard that they need to cater to such a fickle customer. I have not done much on my Winterhoof and Jub Jub toons. I did finally pick up flying on my paladin and mage. on Winterhoof. I transferred gold over from all the other toons and sold everything that was not tied down. I am planning on going over to level them once Sagrado hits 80. The pair can then play "sugar daddy and mama" for the rest of the toons on the server. For the Horde and For the Alliance, Bidkar and his numerous alts Shout Outs & Thank You MoMoMoments Hello everyone, hope you are all doing well and have had a great week. This past week I was able to play some more, well more than the past week or month. I was actually able to join this raid group I was in, a mix of current and old guildies. Tuesday we went through the beginning part of ICC 10 real fast. Let me tell you the 30% buff definitely helped a lot. I would like to ask you all, what do you think of the buff Blizzard puts out for raids like ICC? Do you think it takes away from the experience or is it good for majority of the people? At this point I dont mind it as we still cannot finish it :( So yes on Thursday we picked up on the Blood Queen but just could not down the dragon before the Lich King. But we will try and try again. It is a fun experience if you can check it out. I still have fun leveling and still have so many characters to level like all of you. My druid/mage combo is still stuck at 72. I will have to move my lock to make room for my goblin, I really want to make a goblin hunter engineer, for me there is nothing better. BUT what about a holy tauren priest!? Holycow! :) Well that is all I have for this week. I may try to sneak into Comicon this weekend even though I dont have tickets and I would like to see Inception, looks great. Have a great weekend and coming week everyone and be prepared for the expansion as I believe it will be here by october 4th, because I have the week after off so that will allow me to play all week :) Take care -- Mo iTunes Reviews Au

What We've Been Doing:

Running Sunken Temple with Elyte 75DK, Shaasha Mage 49 & Tokenita 48

Ran LBRS with Matahorn.

From Blogger Pictures

Our old buddy Matahorn has come to Winterhoof and joined Ctrl Alt Wow. We got together to do some Instances. At first I thought we’d try Old World stuff. But when the drops were too low, we went to Hellfire Ramparts. Did get this cool Axe for one of my DK’s.
Went back to Hellfire Ramparts.

Lost some levels in RAF! Expired 7/13/10
Aprillian & Vrishna
Following Ashayo’s advice last week we disabled Real ID.
Ran Hellfire Ramparts
RAF (YAY !!!!) ... (AHHHHHHH !!!) ONE MORE TIME !!!


Anomander the DK hit 78 early in the week and started to gear out as tank with intention to tank dungeons till 80. First ever random as (blood) tank - Halls of Stone! I'm cursed!
Ran more with Mollysaint healing, Bobo and Xanar dps'ing and a very lucky pug hunter that won every boss loot in Gundrak, Violet Hold and Drak'tharon Keep.
DPS FoS with Ralff and Molly - tanking and dps pants ; but I have to hit 80 to use.
Hit 79 and queued up for another random - HoS AGAIN!
Dinged 80 at the of CoS
Got the defense chest and bracers made - guy was going to charge 100g for the bracers, then noticed I was in AIE, and did for free.

Dual boxed XT-002 on Ashayo/Asheal - a bit more challenging than Anub

Crazy Train - Got Putricide down to 7% - massive change from previous attempt of not even being able to control the slime. Reset and cleared 6/12

DwP - Back on Lich King, and after a small number of warmup attempts, finally killed and got the Kingslayer title!

Razorscale - weekly : Ashayo&Asheal dualbox

Anomander - HoS (again!!), AN, PoS (Ralff, Molly and Xanar took pity on me) Hard on Molly healing, but we got through and I won the [Tyrannical Beheader]

Levelled cooking - ridiculously easy from 300 now. Skilled up from 400 to 450 with one recipe.

Levelled DK Engineering to 450 - last 5 pts really hard ; ended up making wormhole generators for last 2 pts.

Got the Jeeves recipe pretty quickly from Library Guardians in Storm Peaks, but the fun doesn't stop there. Also need to do a quest to learn the Scrapbot Construction Kit schematic. And you need to know both previous Field Repair Bot Schemetics, and I knew neither. One is a random drop off mobs in Blades Edge Mountain (took multiple clears of all mobs for it to drop), and the other is near Golem Lord Argelmach in BRD - Used Direbrew Remote to get there fast.

Ashariss had enough frost emblems to buy Tier10 shoulders - only one more peice to go for 4 set bonus - not bad since he doesn't raid.

Gold Gold Gold

Mario the Mage spent Thursday mining and did a quick run through Gnomeregan to pick up lil Smoky and Pet Bombling schematics. Got them in one run. Spent the rest of the day farming mats to make several of each and another bike. Profit = 7200 gold :)

Total 9 day profit 17680

Been watching WoWathon 2 ( Fascinating watching people play.


Email #1 from Tryian

Dear Ctrl Alt wow Crew
Tryian here, just to say I Love the show keeps me laughing and not shaking from not been able to play wow when out at work delivering milk in a morning.
My first time emailing in I thought after listening to you guys and also a few other podcasts I should give something back.
And with my bad luck last few weeks given me a good reason to have time to email :0)
The other week my Graphics card decide to burn it self out so I’ve been on onboard graphics for the last week or so.
Now one good thing about wow is that I can still play….well kinder,
Questing on my own fine but dungeons and going in to dalaran and Org forget it.
So my lvl 80 holy Belf paladin has had to take a back seat from getting his frostsy’s but I’m at a point of wanting to raid but I’m in a guild with a small group of friends some still lvling up and getting to 80
So it has to wait.
With the no graphics card this last week or so I’ve gone back to my druid and lvling him up questing now in to out land.
Found myself enjoying lvling again and with a few heirlooms and rested xp its going well, not rushing through so much this time you start to enjoy some the little things they done with the game, even the poop quest in hellfire .
Well hope to soon be back to grinding and doing some the dungeons again but will stick to working on my druid might even try tank with him, I’ve heard its really just 3 buttons so might not be that hard lol.
On a final note I was thinking to maybe try out duel boxing at some point trying out running a 2 man maybe shammy and warrior, but 1 questing I’m wondering is how dose the grant level’s work?
Is it every 2 you make you can give 1 back to any toon? So say I get the 2 toons to 60 I’ll have 30 lvl’s to give on each account?
Thanks if you do read my email out love the show that you all do keep the 3 hours ones going as BOE seem to be a bit sorter these days the 3 hours keep me going for a day at work

Email # 2 from Mattdiox

Hello Caw crew, the wonderful Jeppy, the hyper Aprillian, the suave and sultry Ashayo and the sophisticated Virishna.
It's Mattdiox and his trusty love for potatoes. (In a food way, not in some kinda fetishy way. I'm not Irish!)

Before I go on I just wanted to check, with this contest. Am I aloud to write a fictional tale? Because I wasn't too sure if I was just supposed to write about what actually happens in game with my many pets. Because frankly that would be rather dull.

Anyway, now that that's out of the way.
My priest finally hit 70 and has been traipsing around Northrend since 68. Although I don't know why, I was expecting a huge change of pace when I docked at the icy north, but I am sad to say I was looking back with rose tinted spectacles. The quests are a little better story wise but nothing really else has changed. I think once I hit 80 with my priest it will hit the same block of doing the same dull things my Paladin ended up doing.

Maybe I will do a little more and aim for all the best gear in the dungeons because I am not raiding again. I don't want the responsibility that comes with being a raid healer. But I think I will end up rolling another character and making my way to 3 80's .... then 4 .... then 5 ... then oh god when does it end?!?!

By the way, if you are wondering. Yes the super lasers do come in handy thanks to all that strength Ashayo told me to put on my gear.

I pose to thee a query! If you wrote yourself a WoW song -and had all the musical ability and equipment required- what song would you cover?

Just as last time I have submitted an email and an audio submission. Sorry to say it is not the full version of 'How Many Alts' though I am sure 50% of your listeners are screaming with delight and gratefulness. This time I did a little skit for you guys. Hearing that impersonation of a ghoul at the top of all you shows. I tried doing it for fun, upon realizing I wasn't bad. I wrote this for you all to listen to.
If you like it I will do this every week. -insert smiley face here- The weekly happenings of a single Ghoul who runs his own shop in Northrend.

Lots of Love, Music, Potatoes and Ghouly goodness.

Walk Alone Gaming Podcast

P.S Sorry for the wall of Text.

Email # A from Christina


I just finished listening with your last podcast. It was pretty amazing! I love that El Jeppy read my email. However, I did not intended to enter the free month of WoW Contest. I was just thanking you guys for the opportunity to play WoW from last time. Taking this WoW card is like stealing candy from a baby, like seriously. I just wanted to say hello. lmao. This is so weird. I honestly want someone else to have it. It is the right thing to do. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

Email #3 from Mike
Howdy people at ctrlaltwow, my name is Mike but you can find me on Micsha, Ikitsukene, or one of my many other characters on LS.

So I've been hearing friends talking about podcasts for a while and have finally decided to see what they were referring to and discovered your podcast. Not trying to make your heads large or anything yours was just the first that didn't require me to download things and actually loaded without giving me an error message and had been updated within the last 6 months. Anyway, I seem to have digressed here and gotten off my original topic which, of course, is leveling.

I'm not a huge fan of questing. In truth I can't really stand the quest lines from 68-79. I have done them several times and it gets repetitive for me very quickly. So, I decided to spend the extra cash and got my girlfriend an account to do RAF with. She'd played once before on a trial account and had a nasty experience with Warsong Gulch with "shiny people", meaning it was before blizzard had removed the enchant glows from gear pieces so they looked to her to be "shiny people". I was on vent at the time but we weren't dating, nevertheless I enjoyed listening as her boyfriend asked her if she would mind playing a game of capture the flag. It took a while but she eventually agreed and got qued. Not long after, they got the box and spawned into an already playing game. She was told to run north (to the ally flag) and see if she could get the flag. Being as innocent as she used to be, she had no idea what was going on and proceeded to the ally flag room. Fortunately she met no resistance on her way there and got to the flag room unopposed. Unfortunately, she picked up the flag. Her current boyfriend didn't tell her what picking up the flag meant but she ran towards the horde base with the ally flag. Shortly after exiting the tunnel she was startled by her man yelling at her to run as fast as she could and to not look back. Curiosity got the better of her and she stopped and looked back. I had to shove my whole fist into my mouth to stop myself from laughing my ass off over vent (being that I didn't use PTT at the time) as she nearly started to cry screaming "I'm being chased by shiny people HEEEEEEEEEEELP!" Naturally twinks had enchanted their boots with boar's speed and quickly caught up to her. Once they got to her she actually did start crying complaining that she was being raped by shiny people. As you can plainly see it took quite the effort on my part to convince her to run a bg with me on our RAF accounts. Eventually she said ok after I said that no one was shiny anymore and we qued for Alterac Vally at level 58. I was running a prot pally and she was a disc priest. The run went so well that I got my achievement for level 60 and she was a bar from 60. She enjoyed it so much that she refused to do anything other than bgs to level our next characters (her being a paladin and myself being a hunter) but quickly got sick of it because she was holy and couldn't get used to not having her "shiny bubble button", to which I responded that she had several "shiny bubble buttons" and she refused to use them because they weren't on her sexy priest. Anyway after that our RAF ran out and we started leveling in outlands. We weren't getting triple exp anymore and dungeon farming was no where near as fast, duh, and I got her to respec shadow and told her she couldn't go back to disc until she had gotten 1000 gold for dual spec. Tricky and dirty, yes I know, but it was the fastest way to get her and myself to level 70. Shortly after we first set out in northrend her account ran out of time and she stopped playing.

I have a time card now but I don't know if I should use it on her account because she has problems leveling up through anything other than dungeons by using her "shiny bubble button" and wanted to know what other ways (other than power leveling her toon in Icecrown in the Fallen Heros) that I could use to help her with the leveling experience because I have outleveled her with every character other than my bank alt and I can't quest with her. Suggestions?

Hey guys,

Just thought I'd send in a response to your shout-out (unintended I'm sure) in ep 173.

Good Morning JAVA!

Mmm, I could really go for a cup of java right about now. Nevermind the fact that it is almost midnight here on the west coast. But I digress, let's move into something that everyone should find interesting ...

I am back! Yes, that's right folks. *cue triumphant fanfare*

My hiatus from Azeroth has come to an end and I am back stabbing things in the face. No, not with my level 80 rogue, but with a pair of freshly minted rogues. One on Jubbly Bubbly and the other on Winterhoof.

You might think it mad, but I've created these two rogues for a very specific project: to blog about the rogue levelling experience with absolutely no twinkage, heirlooms, or even RaF!

I'll give Aprillian and Jeppy a moment to compose themselves. Breath in through the nose, out through the mouth.

Okay. Better?

Yes I am mad for going about this levelling project the hard way, but I geniunely want to encapsulate the experience to compare and contrast against after the Cataclysm. I haven't levelled a rogue since vanilla and found myself itching to do it again one last time before everything we know about the Old World is turned on it's head.

My homecoming has made very nostalgic and I've decided to fully embrace my inner-alt. I mean, it makes sense to do so now in preparation of the full-blown altaholicism I will be celebrating post-Cataclysm.

Anyhoo, I've yet to get my fledgling dwarf and troll rogues to level 10, but they're rapidly nearing their first talent points. Well, maybe not as rapidly as I would like. It is fairly painful with absolutely no twinkage, especially with as many bone-headed deaths I've suffered when I forget that these rogues don't have all the tools that my main has.

It's been, interesting, to level as a dwarf. I feel this compulsion to RP it up and only play my dwarf rogue with a beer in my hand. That leads me to a very good question: how is it possible for any self-respecting dwarf to stealth? Perhaps my good buddy Rilandune can enlighten us on this mystery, but it will have to go unanswered for now.

For the stabby stab!

Shout Outs & Thank You
Hello all,
hope you are doing well and have been well. I am sorry I did not email last week but I really had little to email in about. I do not think an email with one or two sentences would suffice but still I am sorry.

I have been away from wow for several days the last 2 weeks or so because of work and just playing with my new toys (finally have my iphone 4 and trying to sell my 3gs too).

When Ruby Sanctum came out, what about 2 weeks ago, I was able to get in there with a few guildies and old guildies in their old guild now (how many times can you say guild in a sentence)
We did fairly ok I say for the first try but we did not down the main boss. It was a challenge and I think that made it fun for me. We went to Icc 10 afterwards and I have to say that was fun too. I think the time away from raiding helped a lot.
Our guild still has been slow with many people not playing or now many guildies are moving along to other guilds. It happens and we will just have to deal with it and add more people when we are back to the grind.

I have been playing my druid/mage a bit now and they are 71 now. The poor mage is lagging behind because she does not have heirloom items. I was on the druid/mage (leveling to 71 and beyond) questing in the fjord, you know the howling kind; I was just questing away in the zone. I usually prefer to just quest while dual boxing but for some reason I said to myself, "Mo queue up for random dungeon finder, it is a cool 14g and 30k xp per character." I said to myself, "ok MO lets do it!" And before I knew it my druid got the pop up to join as a healer and of course mage for dps, what else would a mage do!?
It was Utgard Keep already in progress and an 80 tank! I said right a way to give me a min to switch specs and the other 3 said ok. (now I am thinking to myself again, what kind of a bizzarro world! is this!?)
So I catch up to them with my motree and momage tailing behind and the tank starts. After the first mob the tank says to just let him know when I need mana!!! (what in the world is going on here!?) Let me fastforward to save you some time: we finish not one, not two, but 6 runs of UK, Nexus, AN!! I know crazy and after the 3rd run I told them I was playing the druid and mage and I even apologized for taking so much loot on my mage but it was all cloth stuff what was I to do. So end result is, just as in life good things do and can happen. So once again people lets all, me included, make sure we consider both sides of the story, consider the people you are playing with and yes even the alliance :)

Juno's idea of a Ctrl Alt Wow t-shirt is brilliant! I want oh I WANT ONE! How do we go get it rolling?! Please let me know how I may help, hey we can even make coffee mugs! PENs! and so much more!
ok sorry I am sorry for getting excited there but I hope you know your fans do support you, me included. I would love to wear your shirt (well not your shirt, you know what I mean) to blizzcon and I would love to drink my morning coffee at work and have my coworkers ask me "what is ctlr alt wow?" and I can tell them what it means and I can make things up, it will be so much fun!

Lastly I have to I have sinned and have wasted many days of my raf :(
I will salvage the last week of it but I wonder if I can do another RAF when the expansion is out.

Thank you as always and have fun everyone

Ctrl Alt WoW Episode 173 - Just Because You Can Click On It, Doesn’t Mean You Should

Aprillian, Ashayo, Virshna and Jeppy discuss another week of playing World of Warcraft, Blizzard's great MMORPG. Contest Ongoing send an email to telling us how you play WoW, either as an altaholic or dealing with it in your family life to being placed in a drawing for a month free of WoW or a $10 iTunes Gift Card or an in game pet code Authenticator, they are back in the store.

What We've Been Doing:

Haven’t been on Aprillian hardly at all. Did do some dual boxing with DK’s in the starting zone. Updated Blog for Aprillian. Used Armory feed to add more infor for both Aprillian & Gål.
Aprillian & Vrishna
So much fun doing random dungeons. (Say’s she)

Gave levels to try to get in to Randoms. Not really sure about how the Random thing works. Ended up with Level 40s with no training, no mounts. (And carpal tunnel)

Did BRD Random, thought was doing upper city, finished and no satchel. Opened ticket on Gål & Nål. (I just let it go) Realized later we were queued for Prison. Gål got a satchel back after 4 or 5 days. Nål got a “We’re looking into it, thanks for your patience” mail.

Actually had to STOP playing ! Was trying to level my two new pallys and Aprillian wanted to .... cough cough sputter sputter ... continue to refer a friend. So get this, I said no, I was tired, and then had to log off ,cause she might see me playing without her. Now I know why she insists on friending EVERY toon I make.



Back in the saddle agin’ EU on 2 wheels. :) ;} :}

Email # A from Xesu

Dear Americans, that one British Guy, and Aprillian:

Dear Jeppy, I am deeply saddened that England lost in the World Cup, but glad that the Americans also lost in the same round. I only hope now that Argentina, Germany, and all the "Upper Tier" teams in the field of 16 also lose, and that a complete underdog wins, that would be amazing.

So, this is what boredom feels like...

I've recently put in my "2 week's notice" of sorts to my raid group, after finding the content all together not fun. I've tried doing some rep grinds, dailies, or extemporaneous questing... to no avail; it seems at about the 2 hour mark of being in game, I find myself flying off in some random direction, and at that point I realize I should just log off. I tried leveling an alt during Midsummer...yeah...the random dungeon finder is terrible, especially if you are a tank. So -- an anecdote is in order.

I get my superawesome tank insta-dungeon going, (Level 17 Bear Tank), and I come in to the instance (RFC) and start buffing. Before I get off 2 buffs, the "Badass" rogue takes off down the opening hallway, hits sprint, and pulls about 10 mobs. He dies, and aggro is transfered to the Healer, who thought they could save him. Riiiiiight.....

I managed to get all of them off the healer relatively quickly. With the Festival Fortitude buff, as well as Gift of the Wild, a stam scroll (Yes, I bring my own to these things, shows how trusting I am of PuGs >.>),enchants of stam/health on my gear and a Elixir of something (Gives stamina), I was near 2k health in bear form. We wind up killing the group, with no one else dying, and the rogue says "Wow, fail tank." and leaves the group. Then, the healer says "Mana" in party chat, so while I'm sitting, letting them drink, the hunter's pet goes off, ping ponging between groups of mobs, for a good 5-6 packs. Pet dies, all the aggro goes to the hunter, and he dies shortly thereafter. He then put oh so nicely in party chat "Lol healz, way to suck at keeping pet aliv, and wow the rouge (Yes, he misspelled Rogue, like a champ) was rite, fail tank fail healz I is out".

The group fell apart shortly after.

So, what is keeping you guys interested in the game currently? Are you feeling the Summer/Pre-Expansion Blues as well?

Thanks for being awesome. For the Bacon!

Email #1 from Zooexhibit

Hello Aprillian, Varishna, Ashayo and the Mighty Mighty Jeppster

I thought after Ashayo mentioned that I purged my level 80 Death Knight, and your subsequent request to know why that I had better write in with several explanations.
First though I think it only fitting to tell the story.

Boinker was a hopelessly depressed and thoroughly depressing female Orc Death Knight much like Eyeore from the Whinnie the Pooh stories. On a sunny day in June she determined that she was done and determined to end her miserable existence. She went to the market and sold off all her possessions that had any value and gave the proceeds to her friend and my bank alt. Those items that had no value she tossed with very little interest off the side of a zepplin into the ocean, keeping only her trusty steed Horsey. Naked she set out for the site she had selected to end her existence. Mounting up in the mists of Tristfal Glade she spurred Horsey into the growing gloom of dusk. The ride was long and very cold especially when she reached the snowy heights of Dun Murough. Ridding up the road towards the gates of Ironforge she spurred Horsey into a frantic gallop. She roared through the gates and up the steps and into Ironforge. At some point guards started chasing her but at her rate of speed they didn't stand a chance. With great haste she flew like the wind and with the last of her strength Horsey leaped high into the air, easily clearing the small wall surrounding the great forge. Oddly Boinker yelled in orcish "Wych this purge is for you!" and then plunged into the lake of molten metal and was seen no more.
Rest in Peace Boinker

Ok why? A much more difficult question.
1. It might be argued by some that since I am working on the "Insane" achievement I was attempting to prove myself worthy of such a lofty title.
C. As Ashayo is such an outstanding Death Knight tank that I snapped and killed her because I just couldn't deal with the pressure of being so inadequate by comparison.
4. As Jeppy has determined I hate Death Knights and was seeking some sort of revenge. This however is completely untrue. I believe Blizzard made a mistake in introducing a "Hero" class that they would just have to nerf into being no more heroic than any other class. I don't like playing a DK, but I have nothing but respect for people who have learned to play them well. I use Ashayo's DK Pud as a shining example of a well played DK.
3. It might have been a full moon and as Tempeste has accused on more than one occasion I might be a vampire and maybe since I had no one to bite I was inspired to violence.
A.Or maybe just maybe it has more to do with the fact that Blizzard allows only 10 characters to be created on any given realm, for those of us who don't dual box that is. Maybe I didn't have room for my level 1 zombie required for the BOE zombie run, and was merely removing a toon that was not liked in favor of doing something that seemed by comparison very fun. I do have 6 other level 80's (2)Druids, a Hunter, a Mage, a Paladin, and my newest a Rogue. I also have a bank toon and several project toons on Jub Jub.

Most likely it was a combination of all those things.

On a final note I was wondering why you people (Aprillian, Varishna, and his Buddha like eminence the very wise Jeppy.) are downright snubbing us commoners on Jub Jub. Do you secretly hate us? Do we smell funny, or look scary? Where were you for the zombie run? Ashayo was podcasting with you and he still made it. It might have made for some funny podcast moments. Have you really sold your souls to Al ea esta buesta buesta (AIE) and are now minions of their Royal Sirs the great Scott and Randy? You spend so little time there that I think even Tempeste has kicked your toons from the guild. I love your show but am downright disgusted, hurt, and dejected by your treatment of those of us who proudly wear our pants on our heads. We would love to see and chat with you all once in awhile.

I would apologize to you for the wall of text but I am really not sorry at all.
Zooexhibit (ZooE)

ps. In the unlikey event that I win the roll (Ashayo secretly hates me) I would love a Panderan Monk.

Email #2 from Mattdiox
Hello CAW crew. It's Mattdiox, the one who likes potatoes in case you forgot.

Only a few minutes after it was released did I start listening to CAW thanks to Aprilllian.
I must say it was as fantastic as always, though I did miss big V's slight dash of awesome he brought to the show.

First off, Jeppy! Anime is the name of the cartoon style, how dare you forget.

Second on, I wanted to give you guys and the listeners a tip for something to drink while playing around in the world of Azeroth or Outland depending on the alt you're playing. It's a smoothie of all things, healthy but fills you with the energy you need to play the hours all us addicted folk play.
The smoothie is simple to make:
You need 2 Bananas
1 Dragon Fruit (Sort of WoW themed now, isn't it?)
And a spoonful of Raspberry Jam or 2 spoonfuls of Honey if you want some extra sweetness.
6 reasonable sized Ice cubs
A cup of milk.
If you're adding strawberries then only have 1 Banana otherwise 2 will overpower the taste of the strawberries.
Blend all this together until it's merely white with small black tiny pips floating around.
This smoothie has:
+4 To dexterity
+5 To awareness
+10 To Yummieness

It's very fantastic if you are a fan of smoothies, if you aren't then you must live off onions.
I hope you enjoy it and what will likely be your first contact with a Dragon Fruit.

Now you guys allow your mailers to send in Audio files and obviously all of them have had someone talking rather than writing an email. But I have decided to do both, but this is a little different. Inside the audio file you will find a song I recorded just for you. It's obvious what the song I parodied is. Sorry about there only being 1 verse and the chorus but if you want me to do the whole thing I am happy to. That is if you like my singing and guitar.

Lots of love, music and potatoes.

P.S Again, I will send you a potatoe.
P.P.S However you got 750 gold from the Midsummer I will never know, I got a lot but it wasn't that much!
P.P.P.S I will use P.S all I want!

Email #3 from Christina

Dear Aprillian, Ashayo, El Jeppy,
Vrishna, and Juuno:

everyone. The lovely Melicilia aka Christina is back. I want to thank
you guys for giving me the opportunity to come back to one of the only
places where I can roflmaopwn paladins with an evil grin on my face. I
have been hiding the past month in a 1950s style nuclear bunker playing
WoW (joke). I have some wonderful news to share with you. I finally got
my druid alt to lv 80! She is still feral tank main spec/ resto offspec.
I have farmed so many normal and heroic dungeons that I had at least 60
triumph badges in my possession before my druid (Meliysa) hit lv 80.
Before my month of WoW ended, I farmed about 300 triumph. I got her a 4
tier 9 feral tank set and a 3 tier 9 resto set. When I return, I will
farm more heroics to purchase the remaining tier 9 resto pants, the 2
lv245 feral and resto idols, the lv245 trinkets, and any remaining gear I
can get hold my hands on before I make my way to ICC 10. Plus, I am
closer to getting my druid her first tier 10 piece! Yay for my baby
druid! All hail Meliysa, Princess of Azeroth! ^_^

and tanking heroics at the same time have its advantages: instant
queue. But it has its disadvantages: noobs and nerd rage. My
question to you is what are your most unforgivable dungeon finder
experiences and how do you do deal with incompetent WoW players in
random dungeons on a daily basis? I think I have seen
it all. Once I healed Normal Forge of Souls and the prot paladin tank
left after the first boss was killed. Why? The boss did not drop his lv
219 tank mace. Why do people do that? Your mission is to complete the
instance. There is no point in leaving in the middle of an instance when
your comrades are left to defend themselves in battle. Coward I say.

there are the dps players that believe that I suck as a tank. Here is
the deal. My druid is my first tanking and healing toon and I will make
mistakes. I have clearly stated this in several instances before we even
started them. But somehow, dps will still try to blame me for their
deaths if they pick aggro from me. For example, I tanked heroic TOC 5
man one day. There was an elemental shaman in my group. He died twice
before we downed the first boss. Now hear me out. Although he died, I
tanked the horde champions and as a group we killed them without
wiping. I repeat without wiping.
He managed to get another person in the group to kick me out. The
shaman kicked me when 1.) its takes forever to find a good
tank to run heroics in the first place 2.) He was an elitist that
believed that a tank in full ICC 25+ gear is God. 3.) He hates to
wipe..... his butt.. 4.) We defeated the boss. If we had wiped, he would
have had a good reason to leave or boot me. But
we did not wipe.

these days want perfect runs. This is an imperfect world with imperfect
people, an imperfect WoW game (true fans know what I mean hence that
lame 24+ hour maintenance period =.= ) and imperfect WoW players. If you
want a perfect heroic Halls of Reflection run, ask your friends and
guildies to take you please. Don’t get pissed when your random LFG group
wipes a couple of times. Skill takes practice and patience, unless you
are Chuck Norris.

enough with my rant. Now to you guys. After I listened to Episodes 171
and 172, I came to a conclusion that Aphillan and Vrishna
are a cute, little old WoW couple that loves the recruit a friend
system, loves Scarlett Monastery Cathedral, and loves to secretly
torture little bunnies! Well Aphillian does. Vrishna is probably an
animal lover/PETA animal rights spy for Blizzard. Keep up the good work
guys! I will be writing back soon! And Happy Fourth of July! For the


aka Melicilia

El Jeppy, I got my “eyes” on you. Juuno knows. Ashayo, you and El-Jeppy
are true altolics and achievement “hordes”. hehe.

Audio Submission from Zebeste pronounced Zeh-bes-tess also Kalano

Email # C from Bidcar
Hallo Vrishna, El Jeppy, Ashayo and Aprillian,

Bidkar, friend of Ben Affleck here. Last week I finished up my RAF and here's how it wound up be it for good or be it for bad.
Leveled a warrior and shaman to 60 on Borean Tundra. Used the levels from them to bump my hunter to 50 and other mage to 37. I also leveled a paladin up to match with the mage, but didn't get around to playing them, so they are now at 39 and 40 respectively. I don't really mind because about 40 is my favorite time in game.

I leveled an Alliance mage, paladin, druid, priest, and a couple of death knight to 60 and beyond. I used their levels to level up a warlock and hunter. I have a bunch of lower level toons from using levels from toons I only leveled a bit.

I leveled a Horde warlock and mage to 60 on Jub Jub. I used their levels to bump a priest that I leveled on there to 49. Perfectly happy with that. Leveling a toon from 50 to 58 goes fast for me.

I missed the first week of the Fire Festival since it coincided with the last week of my RAF. Consequently I hit the festival hard this week. I did the Fire Festival dailies on all my new toons, about 20 toons a day. I really like doing the torch catching, so I still had fun. I could do without the torch tossing for awhile though. Also took a bunch of toons around to the fires in Outland and Northrend. My Borean Tundra druid felled many Alliance toons in Goldshire while doing the fires. They attacked me first after I got fire flagged, I think they thought superior numbers would give them an advantage. Danced with an Alliance druid out by Westfall, good times had by all.

My next toon I'm taking to 80 is my druid on Borean Tundra. I leveled him up from 74 to 77 this week and should get him to 80 pretty quick. He's been around since February 2009 so I should finish him up.

Have a great week!

For the Horde and For the Alliance!

Bidkar and his many alts

Email # 5 from Fayth
Hello Ctrl Alt WoW crew!

It feels like forever since I last wrote! I started playing WoW again after a ... hmm ... seven-ish month absence. A lot has changed! When I stopped playing I was one of my guild's main raid healers and in the top 25 list of best-geared Discipline priests on my server. Now I'm an under-geared nubcake! And I'm liking the super lazy aspects of the new LFG system! One problem with porting to the instance is not being able to find my way back in after a wipe ... Oh well, I'm getting the rust off little by little.

My highlight of the week (thanks to a little tip I heard on Ladies of Leet) was getting 2 Frost Badges on ... my level 72 warrior. Oh, and an awesome dps cape for when I hit 80. Thanks, Ahune! Hopefully it wasn't too bad of an exploit and I'll get myself banned for it. o.O

It's great that you guys are getting so many emails lately, so I will keep this short and sweet. I just wanted to say thanks for the podcast, and I'll write some more "Fayth-spam" later!

I have a question for you guys (and your listeners) if there's time. What is your music/background noise of choice when you're playing WoW?

For the Alliance!

Wooohooo! I love Ashayo's rolling skills!

A month of WoW would be awesome.

Also, is there a PayPal account for the show that I could possibly donate to?
