Favorite piece of lore:

As someone who generally gravitates to warlocks, my favorite lore has to be the demonology and the Burning Legion.  The Warlock green fire questline in particular is fantastic from a lore perspective.  Here’s to the hope we’ll get more insight into BL strongholds like Xoroth and Argas in an upcoming expansion.  The similiar Lovecraftian horror of the Old Gods certainly vies for my intrigue as well. but demons are where its at.

Haven’t heard much about the Herald of the Titans project on the last couple podcasts, but earlier episodes got me intrigued enough to start up a new warlock Batibat on Earthern Ring and race to 80.  Got there this week, turned off XP, and started to dutifully work on optimizing my gear for the required ilevel.  OMG queuing up for Wrath normals and heroics that drop the ilevel 219 gear is frustrating, for DPS you are looking at queue in the 90min – 2 hr mark for something like Forge of Souls or Pit of Saron, I imagine its not so bad for a healer.  Getting high levels to run you through will be less painful, so I hope B&S adds some calendar events for this.  I did luck out and talk my way into an Ulduar 25 run already and scored 226 head, legs, feet and a 232 sword, on top of the 219 neck, wrist, and gloves I’d picked up already I think I’m doing pretty good in one week and proof that it doesn’t necessarily take a prolonged gearing up grind to get where you need to be.

Week…I forget…5-6-7??

Favorite Vanilla dungeon:  UBRS!  The reasons are a probably a little odd but here goes.

1.        Leroy Jenkins achievement (Just reminds me of the good old days)

2.       The suspenseful walk through the BRS door, down the dark and dusky hallway, and ohhhhh &^%$!  There is 40 Ally gathering for MC or BWL.  Hunter flare FTL exposing me to bone form and then taking a mind controlled leap into the lava.  Woooohooooo!

Quest Chain:  The Ony Key

Favorite Piece of Lore:  Sadly, I am ignorant to the lore.  I need to read the books.  Been playing since the night the game came out and I pushed lore to the side.  Ya..I’m that guy!

Side note:

·         Keep up the great work and nice work on the podcast art.

·         I’d like to test out the TSM-Molsan-Method-Beta-trial-under construction-make-my-life-easier pack.  Something is not clicking for me with TSM mentally and time has been slim getting through the tutorials on Youtube etc.

Thanks fellas,

Hey Molsan and Sláinte,

So, for week 7 and my favourite piece of lore I have it narrowed down to one thing, though admittedly, it wasn’t too hard, lol. Ever since TBC came out my favourite part of the WoW lore has been anything and everything Blood Elf related. I just find their stories, history, culture, and everything else in between fascinating.

Have an awesome show guys,

Prospecting Macro (version of the milling macro)

http://us.battle.net/wow/en/forum/topic/6036116770

/run function FnO() for i=0,4 do for j=1,GetContainerNumSlots(i) do local t={GetItemInfo(GetContainerItemLink(i,j) or 0)} if t[7]==”Metal & Stone” and select(2,GetContainerItemInfo(i,j))>4 then return i..” “..j,t[1] end end end end

Use as your prospecting button, replacing “prospect2” with the name of this macro:

/run local f,l,n=AuP or CreateFrame(“Button”,”AuP”,nil,”SecureActionButtonTemplate”) f:SetAttribute(“type”,”macro”) l,n=FnO() if l then f:SetAttribute(“macrotext”,”/cast Prospecting\n/use “..l) SetMacroItem(“prospect2”,n) end

Hi Guys,

I’ve been out of Wow for a while now but really enjoy listening to your podcast. I have a few toon’s my mains are Fooch (Druid 85) in AIE and Dewy (Shaman 85) on Kargath. Thanks to listening to you guys it has inspired me to try and get backing into the game while also balancing all my RL responsibilities. I’ve been playing since release and used to be a 40 man raider in vanilla but since lost all the folks i used to play with and the fun i would have with all my RL friends. I’m hoping to get back into things and meet some new folks and have that kind of fun again and you gents are really inspiring me to give it a go. I’m only on episode 4 right now but the episodes so far I have listened to have been awesome!! Just listening to you guys talk about how your playing the game casually and not raiding (at least not yet 😉 has been reminding me of the days when i played and enjoyed myself like you guys are doing. I just wanted to say thanks very much for the work you gents do on the podcast and it’s an absolute pleasure to listen to all the episodes. I can’t wait to get caught up to the present day episodes and get back in the game.

Many thanks and keep up the great work!

Fooch
