WoW Year’s Resolutions

Interviews and Guests!!

TWoWoD Week 5 – Shadowmoon Valley and the Stormreaver Clan led by Gul’dan

Interview with Gul’dan

  • With the assistance of the Shadow Council, worked with Medivh to open the Dark Portal between Azeroth and Draenor

  • Gul’dan along with Cho’gall manipulated the Horde as they waged war on Azeroth

  • Gul’dan manipulated the election of Blackhand as the first Warchief of the Horde

  • Upon learning of an attack on Medivh at Karazhan, Gul’dan entered a psychic link with Medivh’s mind and was put into a coma when Medivh was slain by Khadgar, Lothar, and Garona

Who are the Stormreaver Clan?

  • We don’t know if the Stormreaver Clan was founded during the First War or Second War

  • Small but powerful group whose purpose was to protect Gul’dan from Orgrim Doomhammer

  • During the Second War of the Eastern Kingdoms, they intended to find the lost tomb of Sargeras

  • Gul’dan and the Stormreavers abandoned the Siege of Lordaeron, raised the Tomb of Sargeras from the bottom of the Great Sea, and attempted to steal the demonic power from the tomb for their own. According to the promise of the tomb, It would have made Gul’dan a god

  • (it was in fact the promise of the Tomb of Sargeras that led Gul’dan to first open the Dark Portal).

  • Gul’dan himself was later torn apart by the Tomb’s Guardians, at the very threshold of the Eye Chamber (once the Courtyard of the Moon), and his armies destroyed by the enraged legions of Orgrim Doomhammer, who had been forced to break off their assault on Lordaeron in order to deal with Gul’dan’s treachery.

What’s up with Shadowmoon Valley?

  • Official description from Blizzard: “Hidden under a shroud of perpetual night broken only by bright starlight, the lush, idyllic forests of Shadowmoon Valley are home to a majestic draenei tomb and sanctuary: Karabor. While many of Shadowmoon’s denizens study prophecy among Karabor’s ancient stone circles, plotters with darker ambitions lurk in the valley’s vast underground cave network, gazing greedily at the sacred temple.”

  • This is what we played at Blizzcon, right?

  • Karabor is the Draenei tomb and sanctuary… that later becomes the Black Temple

  • Very blue… like Zangarmarsh, but looks like Azuremyst Isle

Hi Molsan and Slainte,

So glad you accepted my request to join the B&S guild. I’ve listened to the show every week since about episode 30 and have since gone back and listened to all other eps (I play WOW with no music with B&S going in the background). I’m an Australian WOW player who refuses to play on anything but US servers and due to the time difference I have gotten very used to playing alone, questing alone, logging on when I am only guildie online (out of a guild of sometimes 400+ members) but funnily enough, this podcast and guild has made me feel like I’ve finally found some people who ‘get’ WOW.  Without gushing too much, I just have to say the greatness of your show and your refreshing and down to earth perspective on WOW has left me with 2 questions:

“I wonder how much more I would’ve enjoyed this game had I known about podcasts in general and/or had your show been on the Net back say, 6 years ago?”

and

“Why didn’t I give the Horde a proper chance till now when I rolled a Troll Druid on Earthen Ring solely to join the B&S guild? The Horde aren’t filthy scoundrels as I once thought, they’re deep and misunderstood…when they’re not chopping down Ashenvale.”

Enough butt-kissing – time for Thrall and Aggra.

Playing only Alliance toons till this year meant I knew very little about Thrall but funnily enough I went back on my Nelf Hunter (my main) and did the Hyjal/Deepholm/Uldum quest where he gets kidnapped and Aggra and I brought him back. I now see why so many people idolize him and seeing his feelings for his true love Agra – and him wanting little green babies with her – solidified that. Varian is nowhere near as interesting or deep and one wonders if he would share the same resolve that Thrall does to lay down his title of King and fight for the planet rather than for the good of the Alliance? Thrall is far too awesome to lead the Horde… he is destined for far greater things. Thrall and Cenarius vs Ragnaros in Hyjal was amazing. As for Aggra, her influence on his Shamanistic skills and life is only positive and makes their story and more importantly, their son. so much more interesting. I for one would love to see how Anduin and Durak (Thrall’s son) interact and how their story is played out in future expansions or possibly…. the next WOW game!

That’s it from me – stay classy and please invite my Hunter to the guild when I server/race change him to Earthen Ring!

Zahbs. Orc Hunter on Arthas-US

hey guys!

First time writing in. Stumbled on the show (luckily!) on the very first 30 weeks of WoW and have been tuning in every week since. Anyhow.

I completely agree that WoD should and will hopefully be all about character development. Too many amazing heros and even more bad ass villains have fell by the way-side by blizz. More Sylvanas! More Orc tribe leaders! But most of all, as a hunter since start of BC till Today…REXXAR! I mean his home planet is dranor. Hes half orc and half ogre…that sounds like WoD to me. He was deemed a “champion of the horde” by thrall back in warcraft 3. Would love to see what he does back home to prevent the terrible place that what we know as “Outlands” from ever existing

Thanks guys, keep up the great work!

TWoWoD Week 6 – Mythic and Flex Raiding and Raid Finder

Q&A with Sláinte

With all the cross-realm and realm merge changes… why do we still need guilds?

With all the b.net friend stuffs, raid finder tools and what not… no need for guilds, right?

After you complete something you’ve been working at for so long, do you ever miss some of your routines like dailies? Do you miss the factions and quest-givers?

Doesn’t playing and talking about PvP / battlegrounds mean that you’re bored with the game right now?

What is your biggest raiding pet peeves?

How are your profession cooldowns (Sky Golems and ingots) coming along?

What have you been doing since you received your Legendary Cloak? Have you done Ordos or Garrosh yet?

#TWoWoW – Week 2 – Favorite Raid

My favourite raid would have to be Karazhan!

Part of it was the mechanics – they were interesting, new, and challenging.

Part of it was, strangely enough, the effort you had to go through to actually get attuned. I know raid attunement is a double-edged sword, but I did enjoy the challenge – mainly because I got to do it with friends. Which brings me to the main reason I liked Karazhan so much – the friends and guildies that I got to run it with. I always looked forward to raiding not because I might get loot or down a new boss, but because the people I ran it with made it a very enjoyable time for me!

(Although our tank had this crazy notion of doing difficult pulls of packs of undead by gathering them all up and AoEing!)

Keep up the great work guys!

    • Mystek AKA Tydanis, Earthen Ring US

So for my week 2 submission for my favourite raid I had a bit of trouble deciding on one. I’ve been playing since WoW has released so I’ve experienced every raid that’s been out, so I had to take some time and think about each one and which I had the fondest memories of. After some thought, I narrowed it down to only two: Kharazhan and Sunwell. Not only do I have my fondest memories during this time in WoW (the Burning Crusade exspansion) from both content and the people I played with then, but both of these raids were long, interesting, fun, and beautiful in design. If I had to choose just one of those raids, well I can’t haha, but I would say Kharazhan for overall fun, and Sunwell for overall beauty and lore.

Keep up the awesome job guys, the show is a pleasure to listen to each week :)

 Hello Molsan and Sláinte! It’s Grimm writing in with my 30 days of WoW. I’m gonna cheat and backdate this first email to include week one, so:

My first toon was a Tuaren feral druid named Sala (after the Indiana Jones character) on Korialstrasz. I started playing in december of 2006, right before the launce of BC, and didn’t know feral was not a viable spec. I just liked turning into a cat and stealthing past everything. I was on Korial for 3 years until all the friends I had been playing with had finally stopped playing, and I wanted to go somewhere that I know people would be on even at my late hours, so I transferred to Earthen Ring to join AIE. Sala was taken, and being terrible at selecting names the best thing I could come up with was Rowlf (like the Muppet). That lasted a few months until I got sick of it and decided to come up with something that I could work into any character to make naming easier, and thus Grimmclaw was born. So yes, original toon played since vanilla.

As to my favorite raid, although I love the design, look and feel of Ulduar, I have the best memories from ICC, when Floor Tanks made it through to defeat the Lich King. We may not have been cutting edge, but it was the first time I ever killed an end of expansion boss while it was current content, and by the end of ICC that team had a great chemistry.
