 Recorded Sunday, May 16, 2021 2000

Aprillian, Constraxx, Grand Nagus and guest hosts discuss another week of playing World of Warcraft, Blizzard's greatest MMORPG. The show features audio segments and email submissions from our lovely listeners. Guild Round up from Constraxx.

If you want to join the conversations on the show, we have a live chatroom with in-game giveaways moderated by chatroom-guru Constraxx. We record Live on our page

We also have an ongoing contest. Send an email to telling us how you play WoW, either as an altoholic or dealing with it in your family life to be placed in a drawing for a WoW Pet or an Authenticator.

This week in WoW:

ONGOING :             

ENDING Tuesday (reset) : Shadowlands Dungeon Event

                                      PvP Brawl: Southshore vs. Tarren Mill

BEGINS Tuesday (reset): Pet Battle Bonus Event

What We've Been Doing:

It looks like we will see TBCC release as v. 2.5.1, one number above the latest retail TBC version, 2.4, same as we have Vanilla Classic currently as 1.13.7 after the last retail Vanilla version was 1.12.

Instant Mail Between Characters in TBCC

Guild Banks will be available in a „later patch“ of TBCC

Burning Crusade Collector's Edition Netherwelp Pet Redeemable Next Week after maintenance.

WoW Classic Era Realm Connections Coming Next Week

As we approach the moment when WoW Classic players will make the choice to move on to The Burning Crusade Classic (version 2.5.1) or stick with Classic Era (version 1.13.7), we will be connecting many Classic Era realms during maintenance on Tuesday, May 18.

Burning Crusade Classic - Character Clone

After careful consideration, we’ve decided to lower the price of a cloned character in WoW Classic to $15.00 USD ($20.00 CAD, $20.00 AUD, $24.00 NZD) and €15.00.      You’ll see the lower price in-game when the service becomes available next week.



Gnomeregan pet battle dungeon entrance with mini spider tank pet earned. Got all the pets from Deadmines.  Still after 1 pet in Wailing Critters.  Sold 2 vials of the Sands.  Currently sitting at 1.5 million on my main.

Too hot to play during the day, I sit around 9:00 pm to start and finish around midnight, The Air Conditioning had to get started this morning, too hot to do anything but sleep during the day.

When I drive the vehicle the Air Conditioning comes on as soon as I start the vehicle, it’s very hot in the day.

2 new pets from Ruff Waters in Boralus, Greatwing Macaw and Mechanical Prairie Dog.

Quickly exceeding 1600 pets and leveling spares for RNG mishaps in Pet battle dungeons.

I streamed for 8 hours, Matahorn dropped by and said hello.

Grand Nagus

I just didn’t play much WoW last week, i had to get rid of some anger and frustration about some of the things going on in the WoW world atm, i think that’s the best way to describe it.

So I dove into Path of Exile and Elder Scrolls Online a little, more the former then the latter. 

I really love PoE for the game mechanics, but i think i mentioned this about a million times already. 



Each week GrandNagus takes a closer look at some of the most useful World of Warcraft addons out there.

People that play toons on both WoWClassic type servers, we will have to see how it all works out with addons.

The problem with two server types and one client, if that’s how they are going with it, will be an interesting concept.
