Intro

Segment 1 – This week in WoW

Gill – Completed all but Northern Stranglethorn Vale for the Cataclysm Low Level quests.

Completed Full Caravan, Ten Tabards and Represent. Loved the Bloodsail Buccaneers/Attack on Booty Bay quest line. Also… I bit the bullet and got Breaking the Sound Barrier.

Been playing a lot of Guitar Hero II, III and Band Hero as well.

Stacalm – Downed Chimaeron and got the “Full of Sound and Fury” achievement. Obtained my first T11 piece. Only 2 epics til Cataclysmically Epic! Been running 2s and 3s for Conquest Points and also tried out some Rated BGs.

Segment 2 – Blizzard Blues

4.1 on the PTR….

Highlights of 4.1 –

Zul’Aman has returned as a level-85 5-player Heroic dungeon featuring a revamp of the original dungeon and improved loot!

Zul’Gurub has returned as a level-85 5-player Heroic dungeon featuring all-new encounters, achievements, and improved loot

Both dungeons will be in a new Dungeon Finder difficulty tier above the current level-85 Heroic dungeons and offer epic-quality item level 353 loot

Both dungeons require an average Item Level of 346 in order to run them.

Looking for Guild coming in 4.1?

The Guild Perk, Cash Flow, no longer prints out text to the Chat Log. Instead, the daily amount deposited is shown in the Guild Vault Money Log. In addition, players can view the weekly contribution in a new window at the bottom of the Money Log.

We have added two new custom guild tabards as Guild Rewards. The tabards are account bound and offer a bonus to gaining guild reputation.

All major cities will now have every type of profession trainer and their associated trade supply vendors.

Looks like Old Ironforge is available to look around in – without you getting booted from the game by a GM.

Wanna fly in Ghostlands? Now you can!

Want a Wintersaber mount, but don’t like the current grind? Fear not, listener! The Wintersabers Trainers will now be a set of daily quests. After roughly 20 days of dailies, you will get Winterspring Cub Whiskers, which you turn in for you mount.

  1. I’ve have been leving (of ALL things) a warrior. I HATED warriors in vanilla WoW and swore off them. Recently watched Startusic: Boood and Sand and somehow got the itch to roll a worgen warrior. With heirloom gear and with the ease of levling alts now (and new warrior skills) he’s already level 45.

    Optimal heirloom and XP bonus max is 50%. Heirloom chest (10%) and shoulders (10%), guild heirloom cloak (5%) and helm (10%) and guild level 11 bonus (10%) and the Northrend fishing contest can get you a 5% ring if you win. So 50% XP bonus max, with an ADDITIONAL 2% in the Eastern Plaguelands for using the Libram buff from Fiona’s caravan.

    You will notice the 310% flying speed boost when racing folks for nodes. I have (on a few occasions) been “racing” another player from mining node to mining node and on an even start, can pull ahead, drop down, finish mining as they catch up and try to land, then we take off at the same time and wash, rinse, repeat.

    And I am familar with Mobygames.com. 😉

    Startusic? I think ya meant Spartacus 🙂

    Good to know I was near the mark on that 50% bonus.

    I had no idea you did a stint with Sierra! That’s freaking awesome. I played a few of the games you worked on.
