Alt Tips:

Mail, now that we have the expanded mail, you can use it to store more than just your pet food, as we mentioned in a previous episode.  You can email supplies you don't want to clog up your inventory, vials for alchemist, thread for tailors, weak flux for bs and so on.

Episode ImageAprillian and Glanthur talk about the latest events in Azeroth and how they affect their alts. We all know the main point of Lunar Festival, to get flight paths for lower level alts. And in the middle of it, I got Valentine's Day Fever.

What a crazy week.

Aprillian:

I spent the whole week running around Azeroth. I didn't get to do any quests. All of my alts have major exp.  We all know the main point of Lunar Festival, to get flight paths for lower level alts.  And in the middle of it, I got Valentine's Day Fever.

Hey Aprillian and Glanthur, its triaa again (70 lock) I don't know if you had this answer questioned yet, but in episode 48 the question of what the choice between infernal or felhound was raised. Waht the choice in these quests is the choice of one of the two different offhand items, if i remember correctly, the infernal is for increasing the damage of fire soells in the destruction tree, what the felhunter choice gives you is an increase in shadow damage, such as those in the affliction tree. However in my opinion what you get from outland easily outdoes these quickly, unless you really need the experience I recomend skipping them. They are a very long and almost now pointless chain. Well thanks guys keep up the good work on the podcast.

Hey Aprillian and Glanthur, its Triaa again(70 lock). I had an experience this past week where I helped to explain the different talent trees to a 60 lock who did not really understand them. This showed me that no matter how long you have been playing your class you can always learn something new, so I thought I'd give a quick overview of how I personally level a warlock. However I do recommend you play your class however you want, these are just my personal opinions. I personally found for the ranges of 10-49 having an affliction lock is actually the easiest way to go. And then after 50, I respecced to demonology for the Felguard, best choice I ever made on my warlock. The Felguard provides an amazing tank, and some of the spells you get in the demonology tree improve your character's abilities incredibly. I thought I would include a spec that i used at 50 and one i am currently using to farm at 70. If you guys ever have any warlock questions don't be afraid to ask. Keep up the good work.

Welcome to Dual-Boxing Glanthur!

I agree with Aprillian ... FFA FTW, and get the follower to complete the quest first ... ALMOST.

Why "almost"? When doing grinding quests such as "go find me 30 human heads", and you kill 10 humans and only 2 of them turn out to have heads,  (go figure) I found that it's faster while both character have the quest. If one character completes the quest, the drop rates seems to drop. I guess it makes sense mathematically. So I get the follower up to 29 heads, then work on the followee, so they both finish about the same time.

Glanthur is leaving.  RL sucks sometimes.

Ashayo has graciously accepted

Episode ImageThe Lunar Festival comes once again to Azeroth and Glanthur discovers the joys and pitfalls of Dual Boxing.

What We've been doing

Aprillian dinged 40 and is riding a chicken, she also has a felsteed, but I like the chicken better.

Managing alts during the Lunar festival, tough to get ones on the same level together.

Went to Azhara

My newest account didn't have a higher level alt, so I transfered one over.

Ctrl Alt WoW News Sagala's prize is on the way.

Glanthur:
Lots of dual boxing.  Made two new toons (a hunter and a druid - just like Ashayo).  I'm loving it.  Though, macros are a lot more difficult than I thought they'd be.

Our contest winner, Sagala writes:   I have a quick question about that, also...do you group when you dual box or stay ungrouped since your grouped toons share xp?  Thanks. :)
