Episode# 1: Where to begin…

After much anticipation, Episode# 1 is finally up! Take a listen and let us know what you think.



We start off our “tips and tricks” segment with three simple things that EVERY World of Warcraft player should know. How to turn on Instant Quest Text, how to put your character on auto-run and finally, should you buy that gear from your local neighborhood vendor? We also decided to throw in a wee little breakdown of all the different “levels” of gear and their corresponding colors.


In this weekly segment, we dedicate some time to recommending addons that we feel are helpful for new players. Starting off, we thought we’d explain what the HECK addons (or mods) really are, how to install them and whether they’re a form of cheating in-game!


Finally, we wrap up our “pilot episode” with some annoucements surrounding our guild, the Ministry of Truth. Big leveling news as Snarlstorm gets his first character to 60 and Lunura does her best to catch me at 70 (wink, wink). Plus we talk a little bit about “vanilla-WoW” dungeons and how they can STILL be a very enjoyable part of the game!
