Episode 113 – New Years Murlocs at 11

MurlocParliament It’s a new year and for our first episode of 2011 we welcome Murloc Parliament to the mic. Zelmaru and Noble (a.k.a ArcaneTinkerTank) join us for lots of Warcraft goodness. We talk about balancing family life and WoW and even a pretty funny story or two. For the rest of the show we talk about an important WordPress self-hosted update, Afrasiabi on G4tv and we have not 1, not 2 but 3(!) Shared Topics from Blog Azeroth. Rounding up the podcast is an extra long Addon Junkie segment where Rilandune starts his series about building a custom UI. Don’t miss it!

Shared Topic This Week

Jaedia from Jaedia’s Menagerie was the one who thought of making Cataclysm thoughts a Shared Topic:

What are your initial thoughts about the Cataclysm expansion?

It’s a topic you can take anywhere you’d like. What’s your favourite new zone? What do you think of the instances? Any screenshots you’d like to share? Anything you’re excited to get started on? Whatever might come to mind regarding the main question

Looks at  elements of our real life transpiring through WoW. Our Topic suggester was Dragonray from Azerothian Life:

Do you think your real life job affects how you see people/situations in game and do you use the same methods in game you would use at work to diffuse situations? For example are you the type to just boot people/leave guilds because this is a game or would you try and sort it out considering you wouldn’t just fire someone/quit your job if someone/or situation was being nasty?

Amaranth from Specced for Drama asked about our in-game pet peeves.

What is your biggest pet peeve? What is the one thing you just can’t tolerate in game. Is it the loudmouth in trade, the guy who keeps god-modding when trying to RP with you, the gold farmers, the….

Oh my, the list could go on. Tell us your biggest pet peeve, or make a list, or maybe tell us about the quirkiest thing that irks you.

Or, maybe if you are a roleplayer, you could do this one in character and explain what your character’s biggest pet peeve is in general. Could it be how uncomfortable the griffon saddle is, or how bland Night Elf food is, or the exorbitant price of buying anything from a goblin?
