Segment 4 – E-mail/Q&A

Valerie Rowe writes, “Hello guys. I am just making sure I have the e mail correct. Your show rocks by the way
I would give a 5-star review on ITunes but I dont want to give my card details. U guys are just funny sometimes that I sit in work laughing my head off and of course no understands lol. Anyway keep up the excellent work

Nov lvl 53 worgen druid on Chamber of Aspects realm

Please say hi to the all in the guild of Crushing Crusaders (it is a new guild and we are building the guild level up)”

Also, Cary Young sez about a workaround for accidentally attacking flagged Horde, “So, I had a similar problem… not so much that I’d sometimes accidentally attack a flagged PVP player, but that people kept parking their mammoths on top of an NPC I needed to talk to.

In your key bindings, you’ll find one for “Interact with Target.” Bind that to your keyboard (or mouse). When you get in a situation where you can’t just right-click an NPC, target them (either by left-click or using /tar NPCName) and press your “Interact with Target” button. It’s slightly more work than simply right-clicking, but it ensures that you won’t accidentally mess up.

I found it extremely useful in starting the CoC quests when, neared to Cataclysm’s launch, you’d routinely have 30+ mounted people all trying to click and/or stand on the same quest giver. By targeting him and using my interact with target button, I could easily start the quest regardless of how many mammoths were sitting on him.

Cool show, just started listening over the holidays.”

Dan Rawrrrrrrrrrr also writes “Hey guys! My names Dan , i play a level 85 Night Elf Death Knight called Baladoc on the Chamber of Aspects server, just wanted to say i really enjoy the podcast, along with all the helpful news and tips, the jokes always bring a smile to my face, but just wanted to say keep up the good work 🙂

And from the comments on the website…

“Belloc Brightblade horde archaeology trainer = Rene Belloq from the first Indy movie. Him and Indiana are fierce rivals and Belloq is kind of a jerk.

Belloc is also kind of a jerk and if the bad guys are winning he works with them aka Commander Schnotts questline. If you havent done it yet Gill I highly suggest it I love Indiana jones stuff too and it was a blast.

1st time listener of the podcast and you guys are awsome keep it up!!”

Intro

Cata-something or other launched.

Stacalm – Dinged 85 last night after a 7-hour questing marathon with Tobito. Did my first JC daily. Healing dungeons is hard.

Gill -Dinged 81! Have a lot of thoughts on Cataclysm – torn between questing in Cata-Content and leveling content 🙂

Novernaura – Dinged 50! Questing in Burning Steppes, looking forward to Outland.

Segment 1 – This week in WoW

Hot fixes for Dec 8th
http://wow.joystiq.com/2010/12/09/cataclysm-hotfixes-for-dec-8/

  • Guilds no longer receive guild experience when earning guild achievements. You can read more about this on our forums.
  • If a guild maxed their experience gains for the day, subsequent tallying of individual members’ weekly and total experience gained was not always properly being saved and stored. This has been corrected.
  • Specific mounts, when used in Eastern Kingdoms, were not receiving the appropriate movement speed modifiers between land and ground. This has been corrected.
  • Fishing skill gains were increasing too rapidly past 500 skill and have been adjusted.
  • The tradeskill nodes were too dense in Deepholm and Twilight Highlands for Mining and Herbalism. Several have been removed.
  • All existing guard posts in the world (e.g. Goldshire, Azure Watch, Bloodhoof, etc.) now properly spawn level 85 capital city guards.

Segment 5 – E-mail/Q&A

Jafrugh sez, “Greetings Gillrisper and Stacalm, On your last episode, Stacam talked about the Orgrimmar raid conducted by the Alliance side Saturday evening during the Blizzcon event. Well you mentioned that the Alliance took advantage of the fact that alot of Horde would be either at the event or watching it on the live stream. This is not entirely correct. While it may have been the best time to have the raid on the city, this was actually planned and started to be setup a few weeks in advance. We have an awesome Night Elf Rogue that it a beast at PvP and several times a year organizes city raids across several large guilds and it is an organized attack to completely shut down Orgrimmar for about an hour or more as long as the server can hold. we block entrances, portals, flight masters, and auction house and bank. It is just a great event for the Alliance to fill in the doldrums between raids or expansions. But it was great to hear it from the side of a Hordie!!!

Love the podcast as it is great to hear a host out of all the podcasts that I listen to to be from my own server, even if it is a Hordie. Keep them comming and cat wait for the next one!!”
