Ctrl Alt WoW Episode 248 - Return of the Lore Master

Aprillian, Vrishna, Ashayo 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 WoW Pet or an Authenticator.

Glanthur joins us and we talk a bit about SWTOR!

What We've Been Doing:

Aprillian & Vrishna

Mostly Opening presents.


Feralas starts off with a common theme - mysterious corruption in the wildlife that you have to help repair.
We then find out that Feathermoon Stronghold was moved to the mainland because of the Naga infestation - I just assumed the cataclysm caused the move. How lame of them!
Also picked up a quest for Scarlet Monestary here - doesn't seem a place further away if they tried!
Took me a while to figure out how to get out to Sardor Isle - Quest says to find "Ancient of War on the shoreline" - I was looking for a boat. It's a big tree dude.
Found the 3rd OOX-22/FE mechanical chicken quest on a Naga out on the island
The "isle" of dread is no more - it sunk! But you can still "discover it"
The increased number of hubs in the zone is great - I used to loathe the running back and forth in the original content.
Get to fight Cho'gall in the Dire Maul arena!
Finished 25% into 54

Heading to the Badlands.
Some cool quests in there - a vehicle quest to fight off waves of troggs. A puzzle quest where you have to rotate statues to line them up across a room. Also a quest where three dwarves follow you around - Eric, Baelog and Olaf, and you use their abilities to fight mobs
The chain ends with a trinket that summons a whelp to fight with you every 10 mins
Finished 100% into 54 (377 exp to ding!)
Of course, had to stick around to do "The day Deathwing came" chain.

Mosied on down to Searing Gorge to do the 35 quests there. Some of the old quests are still there, but with a twist. An Ogre gives you a sub-quest and shows you how to get the quest items without killing. Also, there's a quest to collect bullets, and it counts when you get shot! Quite humorous! Finished 59% into 56

Felwood next cab off the rank. So much better flow now with more quest hubs; used to be such a drag running back and forth to either the top or bottom quest hub. Get to see Illidan and Arthas battle - not sure if that is new in Cataclysm? Finished 40% into 57

- Ran Heroic: End Time, and even though they complained about my low dps, didn't kick me. Got new wand, robe and cowl. Woot!! i352 to i362 in one run
- Then spent justice points to get i378 tier legs and gloves - jumped i365
DPS went from 8500 to over 14000 (and still not hit capped)
- Ran Well of Eternity and got new trinket and new belt - now i367. Close to being hit capped .74%
- Ran Hour of Twilight with a group where I felt very noobish - they were all doing 26k, including the tank! But got two ring upgrades , now i368 , and finally hit capped



Bangobingo Update #9

Hey CAW Crew!

I hope everyone is enjoying the holiday season and the holiday events in game.  RL has been quite hectic but I am finally on a two week vacation and able to log in more regularly.

I have been chugging away at the winter’s veil achievements on Bangobingo and just need one more to complete the meta and get the title. Yay! I am still dreading children’s week and the School of Hard Knocks as I am not very good at PvP. Otherwise I have been steadily gearing out my main on Nagrand, Derkdiggler, and have risen his iLevel to just over 370 with gear from the new 5-mans. Just need to switch out that pesky helm and should be good to go with that toon. I was able to get my mage, Readytogogo, to level 70 and can focus more on her leveling now that the XP required in Northrend is decreased.

Now for the question.  This one is directed toward Aprillian. I was wondering if you had tried transferring heirlooms through the real ID dungeon method you used to grant levels across realms?  Not sure if you mentioned trying this or not but thought it may be a way  to transfer the heirlooms across multiple accounts on the same account.  

Well just the quick update for now and I look forward to seeing you all in game!

Merry Christmas!



Fw: New Years WIshes

Hi CAW Crew

Mel and 42 here again . 

We have been very busy in the last few weeks but were delighted to hear Shandraya's emails. Well delighted is just one way to put  ( Mel really did tear up because Shandreya had put so much thought into it) but also proud that she cared enough about the things that give us pleasure to bravely send in her first email to a podcast ever
On the game front we have been doing the Christmas Greench boss many many times ( we now have 16 level 85's ) so it does take a bit of time . I think only one toon got the lump of coal . 

Also a big thank you to Tinokk  for allowing us to join him on the last 3 bosses in AQ40 . The 3 of us had a ball . We got bug mounts . No red ones  for us though , super uber gear for level 60 (Shame we were 85 ) and a few good laughs. It is such a long instance and we were totally lost and getting eaten by the last boss was lots of fun . 

Thank you all for a very enjoyable podcast and back to the 300 quests we have to do to open all the presents for ALL our toons

We hope that 2012 brings much WOW fun and adventure for all , and that we all enjoy  it in good health
Happy New Year CAWers
Melindraya and 42

Rigarmorty CAW 248

Hi Aprillian, Vrishna, Ashayo & Eljeppy!

Attached is my audio for this week. Apologies for the quality and 9 minute ramble. Recorded from my car so hopefully turned out ok.



happy new year

 Aprillian, Ashayo, Vrishna and Jeppy, happy new year and thanks for the great show last week :-)

The Necro's had a great week in WOW with their Death Nights dinging level 80 and getting their professions, enchanting and tailoring, up to grandmaster level.
The main focus for the DK's next week will be reaching exalted status with the Horde Expedition so they can get the Mechano-Hog schematic. 
When the new Mists of Pandaria drops the DK's will need some cool ground rides as flying will most likely not be available for the first few levels of the expansion.

Any advice regarding rep grinding would be well appreciated.

Many thanks,

The Necronomicons

Undead love is forever    

Hey April!

I hope you have a Merry Christmas!!!

Guild Invitation


I have listened to the show and I am a real life friend with Lokwyn and Zoojin.  I've recently rejoined the game after a year and I would like to join the guild.  Lokwyn and I are doing a recruit-a-friend, so I should have a few 80s in no time.  My main charater is Laharal and I look forward to meeting you all in game.
