|The Twisted Nether welcomes Qieth from Qieth’s Quips to the show this week and so, of course, there is a lot of Moonkin talk! Wrapped around and through all of that a bunch of 4.0.1 information, of course, since it went live this past week. Not much in the way of anything else for the show, but not surprising given the concentration people are giving to the patch. Enjoy!
SPOILER ALERT! WE TALK ABOUT CATACLYSM!
UGT-Servers.com – UGT Servers! Ventrillo Servers for Your Guild!
4.0.1 Went LIVE! LINK
BIG QQ! Change in Mounts.. With 4.0.1, all mounts you could get from achievements and other means that were 310% mounts are no longer 310% mounts. Your flying mount speed is based on your Training level (if you trained only 280% then you only get 280% on those).. Unless you had a 310% mount prior to 4.0.1 in which case you already HAVE 310% training for free.. One new exception that is being made.. “What a long, strange trip” protodrake will now (or soon) give you the 310% riding skill, but you have to mount it once, get off and then mount again.. (that’s what she said sound clip…) LINK
First cataclysm TV Spot is Debuting Tomorrow .. Doh well, it debuted on 10/17. LINK
Lylirra – For those of you reporting issues promoting or demoting guild members to a rank that has the “Requires an Authenticator” permission enabled, I have a bit more information for you. LINK
New tree of life model.. LINK
Hallow’s end 10/18-10/31
Blizzcon TNB Meetup/Party: We’ll be trying to broadcast from the show (with video!). We MIGHT be giving something away to someone in the chat channel during the party when we do our giveaway.. Again, if you are going to Blizzcon, you already have something to do Friday night.. Our meetup/party! LINK
No #tntcasts this week. 4.0.1 distracted us with shinnies.
Shared Topic This Week
This weeks topic was a suggestion of Llani from Pocket Heals who asked us about our character naming habits: LINK
How did you decide upon the name for your character(s)? Did you delve into Norse, Greek, or Roman mythology? Did you choose a name from one of your family members? Did you mash the “Random” name generator button in vain until you stumbled upon something you liked? Is your name a play on aspects of your class, using spells or other traits? Did you play around with syllables, vowels, and consonants until you found something that you loved?
How long did it take you to come up with your name? Do all of your characters share the same ‘theme’ or naming convention? Have you ever run into someone who had a similar name? How did you feel? Does your character have a partner with “the other half” to your name (such as “Salt” and “Pepper”). Do any of your characters have a “themed” guild that goes along with your name? Do you have a nickname that your guild, friends, or significant other has given your character?
Has your character name become your online persona, or maybe the other way around?
Do you have any tips for naming your characters in WoW, or any other game? Resources, name generators, mythology websites, sources of inspiration, etc.
If you are an avid roleplayer, how was your name decided upon by family/friends? Did your character choose the name later in life or were they given it at birth? There are whole stories behind naming/birthday celebrations that I am sure are floating around out there.
So much can be said about names. What does yours say?
