Greetings CTRL ALT WOW, Aprillian, Leeta, Rogueslayer and Tedrah as well as everyone else who makes CAW a great podcast.

My names Jonathan I'm 32 writing you from the great white north Canada. I have a beautiful fiancé Amber and an adorable son named Grayson.

My fiancé and I have been playing wow since The Burning Crusade, we formed an alliance guild named Rise Of Righteousness and went on to have over 400 members by Wrath and did some raiding to take down the Lich King.

Amber and myself are altaholics. We both have max number of toons on kargath with 4 90s each with the rest between 85-89. Since our old guild is no more we have been looking for a new home ever since, but never really found a place to call home.

Then I found your podcast, I listen every week while at work and always laugh and smile along with your tales, Rogueslayer and her pvp, Leeta and the dreaded Hulon mount, and Aprillian's cheerful stories of hearthstone :)

So I created a Horde Blood Elf rogue on Earthen Ring and would love to join Clan Of Darkness as well as get my fiancé in at some point if you would have us. My rogues name is Alustral.

Thank you for your time and thank you for the great show.

Looking forward to seeing you all in game soon :)

My Quarterly Update
Good morning CAW crew,

I figured it was time to check in and let you know what's new. I am happy to say, I have all 22 characters to 90. My Horde and Alliance toons are complete. The Alliance group is completely maxed on all professions except archeology as I could only stand to do that on my main. I am still working on the Horde guys, but will probably wait until after the expansion.

I also wanted to share that I took my Rogue in Stonecore while waiting for a dungeon run, found that I could easily solo it, so made the run and wouldn't you know it, the Drake fell. Unfortunately I already had it, but it was kinda cool. Like Leeta, I spent many a day trying for it before it was account bound. I also had Houlon drop another mount I cannot use, and the Headless horseman mount to. I just leave them in my bag hoping for a 750 gold cash out like the one you get from the Dragons.

Well that is all for now. I wish you all the best and look forward to seeing you all in Draenor.

Segwick :)

Hello Ctrlaltwow Crew
It has never happened that I write to you 2 weeks in a row but I come bearing a gift.
I won the top 25 in Guild activity competition we had last week in the game. I won an Armored Bloodwing and I thank Donnie for the gift. I already have this mount so I thought I would give it to you Ladies to give away.
You might be able to have a competition of your own and get somebody to make you a new Email bumper.
Anyway I love the new line up. You Ladies are awesome. Have a great week.
Sincerely Matahorn
Ps I must thank Donnie for letting me give away my prize.

Hello Aprillian, Leeta, Tedrah and Rogueslayer
Deathskeeper here I've been back playing wow again a few months now. So of course I had to start listening to my favorite podcast about WOW. Let see the last time I emailed this show was in 2010!!! Back when I was duel boxing and playing with the Pants on head guild. I'm glad that show has continued to grow. And now that I'm back I can think of no better guild to run thru Warlords with so if you have room for me and my Monk "OffTheChain" we would were the Clan of Darkness ii tabard with pride.
Deathskeeper the DK

Hello CAW Ladies,
Well we have less than a month for the new Expansion so I thought I would do one more project. Instead of deciding to use one of my level 90's when the expansion comes out I have decided to level a new character. So I deleted one of my level 90 Tauren Hunters. I made a Pandaren Hunter. As I speak she is 2 weeks old and is heading to Northrend at level 68.
I am enjoying the new Patch. Since Nagrand is my favourite zone I like that the Hunters can now tame Clefthoofs, Talbuk and Hydra. Anyway must dash I have a panda to level. I hope you ladies are enjoying the new content.
Sincerely Matahorn
Ps loving the new Warlord's Deathwheel Mount. This is my first motorbike mount.

The grind
It's been another long week of lil free time and much work so here's my audio and happy post birthday pixie
