Hello CAW Crew,

We decided to climb out from underneath our "doing too many things in real life rock" to actually make a WoW Parody to send to you guys.

Congratulations on the big 400!

We both have been trucking along on our alt leveling, though we havent playeed much on Earthen Ring, we do have some level 90 goblins we need to get invited eventually into Clan of Darkness!

Anyways, we will keep this short and sweet, just know that our silence doesnt mean we arent listening and loving you guys.

3/ DMF
Taken 1 toon through… I know crazy right! What is going on???
Well any 90’s who have maxed professions need to at least start the Warlords and have picked up the next skill level so as of yet I have not managed to get the other 8 90’s through!
Jeremy AND Christoph Feasel are STILL both weasels!!
4/ Garrisons!
Managed to upgrade my Stables to Lvl2
And my Trading Post to Lvl2
And my Barracks to Lvl3
Underneath the Barracks is a dungeon! It looks awesome!
I also have The Forsaken as my Garrison guards! :D
Stables gives me about 6 dailies to do and with all the other ones I feel like i am taking forever to get them done!!
  • Pet Mengarie - feels like it’s such an effort to do the Pet Battle Daily! Never seem to have the right combo of Lvl25’s to take them down!
Hunting Treasures! The things you have to do!
I’m on a branch! Don’t look down!!
5/ Shout Outs

Hiya C.A.W. crew.

It's been a while since my last letter, so I figured it's well past time to send you guys a little update on what I've been up to. Jeez... I'm not even sure where to start. I've spent more time in game since Warlords of Draenor's launch than I have in years. I'm even at the point where I have to log on before work to make sure my garrison followers aren't sitting around doing nothing while I'm gone. Who has time for dungeons and raids when you have 3 or 4 garrisons to maintain?

When I'm not in my garrison I'm usually doing some pet battling. I have't done enough battles to finish up the Draenic Pet Battler achievement yet, but I'm slowly getting there. Did manage to get both Draenor Safari and So. Many. Pets. Stormwing is fast becoming one of my favorite pets. I did lose a lot of potential pet battling time scouring the friggin continent looking for enough draenic seeds to buy a Crazy Carrot (i think 1000 seeds is a bit much) but on the plus side I have more herbs than I know what to do with. Pilgrims Bounty was a little dramatic for me since I didn't see a bush chicken drop until the final hours of the event even though I ran the dailies on at least six different toons. Come to think of it, I didn't see any of the transmog gear or the turkey shooter at all. RNG is a pain in the butt sometimes.

It's Darkmoon Faire time and while I was hesitant to wander away from Draenor. I'm glad I did. That VonFeasel chap and his cheating pets were due for a beatdown. Took me a couple tries but I was rewarded with my buddy Syd. Ain't he cute? I think I'll keep heading back to beat up on the Wea...err Feasels just for the fun of it.

My luck with pet collecting recently is totally offset by my lack of it when it comes to mount farming. Weeks of Firelands, Ony and Tempest keep have yielded me nothing. Oh well, I'm nothing if not stubborn. At least I have all my new friends at the garrison stables to keep me company.

Shoot. I didn't plan to ramble on this much or have this email turn into a "look what I got" thing. It's just that's its been a long time since I've been this excited by playing WoW and I just had to share it.

As always. Have a good show and I'll see yall in Azeroth


PS. Can't wait to see what's in store for the 400th episode. Is there going to be cake? I love cake

I'm the middle man monkey, the misery junkie
Well its been another week and of the 7 units I have gone to see 3 I have been knocked back on 3 I have walked away from the the final one I find out about on Wednesdaybasically I seen a lot of places in the last week. As for game time I have looked at them all and wanted to play but various real world issues have kept them at arms length hence the lack of audio this week.

For the Horde

For the Alliance   

For the Sandgrophers

And for hopefully being in a new place by next recording

P.S I am not looking forward to the transfer shuffle.

Grand Nagus:

"Hello Ladies of CAW, here is a audio i made about Garrison Followers, there will be no Addon Spotlight this week, but i think this will more then make up for it, hope you all are fine and i hope to help one or the other listener with this little guide to followers and what you can do with them.
