FInally! Hello there!
Greetings Ctrl Alt Wow crew!  Aprillian, Leeta, Rougeslayer, Grand Nagus and everyone else!

So I "discovered" C.A.W. podcast about a month ago and have been listening non-stop every since.  I absolutely love listening to you guys exploits in the world of Azeroth, be it Alliance or *koff* *koff* Horde lol

Speaking of Azeroth, I have been playing off and on since just after vanilla.  I only have one account, but am definitely an alt-a-holic and am on many servers!

Here's my current list of endgaming toons (or ones close to it):

Mytzyplxx - 91 gnome arcane mage (main)
Sumyunggi - 91 human windwalker monk
Toruun - 91 dwarf elemental shaman
Jesuit - 90 human shadow priest
Dormammu - 87 human destruction warlock
Bloodwynd - 74 belf arcane mage
Shaaba - 76 troll BM hunter
Neyaphem - 73 human shadow priest
Wyrmfuud - gnome fury warrior
Zulaan - 71 nelf boomkin druid

and 38 more lower level alts LOL  Yeah I'd say I'm addicted a tad bit :)  Oh and I have a 14 orc fury warrior on Earthen Ring ;)

Anyway, I had sent a note to Aprillian on FB and she suggested I write the show so here it is.  "Hi there!". And with that I'll let you get back to your awesome show :)

For the Alliance, for the *koff* Horde, and for Gnomeregan! This is Mytzylpxx of Scarlet Crusade saying "Huzzah!"


email from Tiber
Hey Control Alt Wow Crew,
I hope everyone is having fun in game, and staying warm out-of-game.

Thanks again for letting me guest on episode 405.  I really had a lot of fun!  I was worried I wouldn't know what to say, but it was like having a talk with some good friends.  I guess because, that's really what it was.

I've been having a lot of fun in game, with both the holidays, and darkmoon faire all happening at once like this.  Last Saturday I was able to go with Leeta, Ashayo, and Wingey, to find a group for the "They Really Love Me" achievement.  I thought it would be pretty simple once we had the right sized group.  It turned out very tense, and stressfull, making sure the buff didn't fall off the player before all 50 charges were applied, or we'd have to start all over.

I finished the Panda starting zone with my new mage, which was a bit of a chore, but not too bad.  When I was done though, a funny thing happened.  When I chose the Horde, the quest giver sent me to see Warchief Garrosh Hellscream, but when I got to Orgrimar there were 2 Warchiefs in the throne room.  Warchief Vol'jin was sitting on the throne, and Warchief Hellscream was standing over to the side to take my quest.  Attached is a screen shot of what I saw.

I also finished the Goblin starting zone with a new rogue.  That zone IS a chore, it seems to last forever.  I think it has something unique though.  As far as I can remember, the Goblin zone is the only one where you have a love interest in game.  Your character ends up in a love triangle with Candy Cane, and Chip Endale.  The story ends with you killing Chip, and bringing Candy's "fickle heart" back to the quest giver.  Dark stuff, but it seems like all World of Warcraft romances end badly.

I need to wrap this up, so hopefully it arrives before the show.

For all the holiday achivies!

So as you will hear it's not been the best week this week but as always I carry on

Greetings C.A.W. crew

Wow, I can't believe it's already the middle of February. So what have I been up to for the last couple of months? I can pretty much sum it up in two words: mount farming. I live in old school raids and dungeons now. I don't get nearly as much time to play as I'd like so the 20-30 minute farming runs seem like a good use of time. I've still got a bunch of mounts on my want list, but I'm happy to report that I have made some progress. I've had both the Ashes of Al'ar and Onyxian Drake drop in the past week. On the same night in fact. You have no clue how nice it is to never have to enter Tempest Keep or Onyxia's Lair again.

Since I've been making weekly forays into Ulduar and Firelands I figured I might as well start the legendary quests from each zone. Nothing about these quests feel legendary. They both eventually boil down to come back week after week gathering stuff the bosses drop. If anyone's interested here's WoWhead's legendary item guide.

About the only thing I have left is that I finally completed the Springrain Armor transmog set. I lost count of how many crates I had to open before I got the shoulder piece, but I can't really complain because I really like how the set looks. I've attached a screenshot of my Druid so you guys can check it out. I believe it's one of the item sets that Grand Nagus mentioned in last weeks transmog segment.

Hopefully I'll have more free time in March so I can get back to my neglected toons, At least I'll make sure to pop online to say hi to my CoD guildees. Miss ya guys.

Insert catchy closing line here.
