Nov 16th 2010 1:04PM Sorry for the delay, Warcraft Outsiders Episode 56 is finally out, though late!

Warcraft Outsiders – Episode 56

This week Michelle clears the air about her Priest’s upcoming in-game item “Chelley’s Staff of Dark Mending“, John is still feeling one with the elementals, and we welcome TWO special guests from the UK. Luna, the sober Scot, and Frosty the drunken Englishman – who stop by to teach our overseas listeners how to get on American servers… and much more. News, Listener Mail, Twitter questions… and a bit of a train wreck.

Guild size cap and the WoW Insider reader guild {WoW}

Oct 7th 2010 11:09AM I run the official Video Game Outsiders & Warcraft Outsiders podcast guild on Shadowsong, the Illuminati Order... and we have been having issues for a while because we had over 500 members and could not see everyone on the guild "online" list.

I am worried once Cataclysm comes out, everyone will roll a worgen alt, and we will reach the 600 cap pretty fast as well.

My suggestion to you guys, is why not break up into an Alliance AND Horde guild. We did that as well, and although the Horde guild is smaller - it still serves it's purpose well. Our guild has such an eclectic mix of interest, I couldn't imagine breaking up into "PvP, or PvE, or lowbies... etc".

Do one (or two) on each faction guys! Good luck.

Breakfast Topic: We need more WoW lolcats {WoW}

Jun 18th 2010 10:14AM I agree. They make me want to stab my eyes out with forks. I prefer grammatically correct dog photos!

WoW Moviewatch: Avatar Days {WoW}

Jun 2nd 2010 4:16PM Really amazing! Loved it. On the topic of our avatars, I have the total opposite issue when playing in that I can only play toons who look somewhat like I really do in person. (Which limits me to female humans and female blood elves) .. I have long wanted to branch out into another race, or even sex -- but I just can't do it. I envy the people who can truly escape into their characters, and hope one day I will be able to as well.

Arcane Brilliance: Love letters {WoW}

May 29th 2010 3:19PM Nice idea -- but it works better with the supreme caster class, warlocks!

Ahem.

Love letter to Corruption (and his hot brother Siphon Life):

Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock. That's not the sound of my heart beating, it's just the ticks of your corruption depleting the health of my enemies. Corruption, you're so damn good to me. You don't tie me down with your instant cast, corrupting 30 targets at once if I dare ask. Tick tock, tick tock, tick tock. That's not the sound of my heart beating, it's just the ticks of your corruption healing.

Forever yours.
XOXXO

Now seriously, what's not to like about leveling a warlock? Is killing 10 things at once and ending the battle with full health and mana with no down time not good enough for you? All the while running around on speed dotting everything in sight! No cast times, no drinking, a pet to do your bidding, a free mount, self healing, self mana recharge, no single target woes! You will level that warlock and you will like it!

Real ID security concerns {WoW}

May 28th 2010 10:16PM pssst Brennan. Your last name is SMITH, that could be why you had an issue finding yourself on the results. Others, as they have stated, aren't that lucky.

Real ID security concerns {WoW}

May 28th 2010 3:37PM Well said Shrike -- I don't think Gregg gets it. For instance when I type in the name associated with my WoW account on the internet whitepages I get ONE result too, and with a few more clicks I uncover our home address (complete with satellite photos.) Sharing that information with my sister or cousin really doesn't bother me .. but if my dumbass cousin, or RealID clueless sister start accepting friend requests from various people suddenly the service isn't just for "MY" real life friends. The argument that someone can't do anything with your name, in this day in age, is really a tragically weak one.

Real ID security concerns {WoW}

May 28th 2010 3:04PM Cata,

"The point, nonetheless, is that your concerns are unfounded and hypocritical. You worry about your privacy, but then you make your life part of the public realm."

I don't want my boyfriends first and last name, or my REAL first and last name (if I was to change credit cards) a part of WoW. I have no problem with "privacy" for all I care everyone in WoW can follow me on facebook and twitter and read all the information I put out there that ISN'T the real first and last name of me or who I am living with.

"You worry about people finding your name through friends of friends, but then you allow anyone with an internet connection to find YOUR friend's names. All I can say is "look at the pot calling the kettle black""

Anyone who follows me, a public figure, knows they are going to be seen by others (whose to say they use their real name anyway, no other site FORCES you to, to use the service.) Furthermore, I don't follow any of my "Real life" friends on facebook, twitter, or gasp .. myspace. I am on those places purely for my podcasts, websites, and the community -- since you seem so hellbent on proving me wrong, I'll go ahead and correct you every step of the way.

"you're flat out wrong with your assessment of this RealID shit! It's nuts! Please don't mistake my ridiculing you for my being angry at you"

The fact that I would like to be able to use REALID, but feel I cannot because I don't want my boyfriends first and last name (nor does he) revealed to the friends of the people I befriend is not nuts. What's "nuts" is for Blizzard to set up a service that does not have a way for us to "uncheck" the friends of friends thing, or edit the name connected with our account. That's the last I'll say on it, your words -- and frankly your behavior here have been way closer to "nuts" than me wanting to keep a loved ones name private.

If WoW.com doesn't delete your posts (it would be sort of creepy if I didn't find it comical) allow me to comment back. (BTW half of your information is wrong, you need to brush up on your detective skills.)

What's your point? That over 1000 people on twitter, and hundreds of thousands more .. millions more even on my websites know my nom de plume? They know I was born in a certain state? They know what games or tv shows I like? Who cares. They do not know my real first and last name, nor the first and last name of my live in boyfriend (something the people who befriend the "real life" friends who I become REALID friends with will. I'm sorry if that's so offensive to you that I would like to keep that information private, that doesn't make me a "b*tch" or "f*ing insane." The internet, as you've proven, is full of angry, odd folks! Once again, golf clap on proving that point loud and clear.
