The Queue: Live show Friday!

Welcome back to The Queue, the daily Q&A column in which the WoW Insider team answers your questions about the World of Warcraft. Mathew McCurley will be your host today.

This Friday at 1 p.m. Eastern, 10 a.m. Pacific, we'll be doing a live episode of The WoW Insider Show! Yours truly will be joined by Matthew Rossi and Anne Stickney to bring in Cataclysm with style, pizazz and fun. We'll take Cataclysm questions, lore discussions, gameplay stuff, zone previews ... and even some special surprises may be in store. Don't miss us jabbering on about Cataclysm this Friday! There will be a more detailed post up soon, but I just wanted to let all the fans know early, since I love you so much.

No, really, I do.

What's the deal with the lack of anniversary pet and any cool item at all from the world event of Cataclysm, like a tabard or ghost pet that follows us around saying, "I WAS THERE MAN. YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW".

Reminder: WoW Insider Show episode 11 live tomorrow afternoon

This show goes all the way to 11, and you can be there with us live tomorrow. Turpster and I (and a few other folks from WoW Insider and WoW Radio) will go live on WoW Radio at 3:30pm EST tomorrow afternoon for episode number 11 on the WoW Insider show.

On this week's episode, odds are that we'll chat about World of Warcraft-- what's that? Oh, you want specifics? Patch 2.3 is the topic of the week-- everyone wants to know what's changing, how to deal with the changes, and why changes aren't happening (that last part is for you, Shamans). Also, after basically discovering that it's cheaper to buy the cards than the packs to get the loot cards, you might imagine that I have some interesting opinions on that, and you'd be right.

So come check us out tomorrow afternoon at WoW Radio and on irc at in #wowradio. See you then.

WoW Insider Show Episode 10: Money, Zul'Aman, and Illidan down

Episode number 10 of the WoW Insider Show has it the virtual airwaves, and you can now listen to it over on WoW Radio's website, or on your very own copy of iTunes. Mike Schramm (me), Elizabeth Harper, Ryan Carter, and of course the inimitable Turpster were all on the mic for this week's show, and we discussed a sampling of the most popular posts from the last week of WoW Insider.
Oh, and our new site Massively got a nice mention as well-- unfortunately, the Murloc suit contest ended yesterday, but the site is still up and pouring out all kinds of great MMO news. If WoW isn't the only MMO you play (or even if it is, and you're interested about hearing what other MMOs have to offer), make a stop over there, and leave a comment or two, won't you?

Listen to the WoW Insider show live tomorrow on WoW Radio

Yes, tomorrow is Saturday again, which means it'll be time to dial up WoW Radio, and listen in live to the WoW Insider Show. I'll be back on the show after a short two-week hiatus, and along with me will be Ryan Carter from WoW Insider (and DIY Life, if you're into that kind of thing), and while I'm not 100% sure we'll have Turpster from WoW Radio, both you and I would really enjoy it if we did, so he'll probably be there too.

On the docket, I've got discussion about how to rake in the cash, all the different gear up for the Arenas in season 3, and how awesome it'll be to see some better items for lowbies and twinks. And since a few kids in China downed Illidan, we'll probably talk about that, too, as well as anything else that comes to mind from the past week in WoW. Just because we've been working so hard on it, you'll probably hear a story or two from behind the scenes of our new site Massively, but this is a WoW podcast, so any talk about that will be over before you know it.

So join us, please, tomorrow at 3:30pm EST over at WoW Radio (and on IRC at's #wowradio channel) for an hour of what some call "the best WoW podcast on the Internet." OK, only my mom calls it that, but trust me, listen in tomorrow and it'll be a fun time. See you then!

Reminder: WoW Insider Show live tomorrow afternoon

Yes, it's almost Saturday again, and you know what that means-- the WoW Insider Show is set to take to the airwaves of WoW Radio once more. Episode 7 kicks off at 3:30pm EST (8:30pm GMT), and you can listen live over on our site, as well as chat with us in IRC at in channel #wowradio. Our email address is, so if you've got feedback for us before or after the show, we're all ears.

On the menu tomorrow, we'll be talking even more about 2.3 (duh-- it's huge!), what's up with Dalaran after it moves to Northrend, how much fun Brewfest was, and that Toyota ad everyone's talking about. I'll be hosting, Matthew Rossi will be aboard (so we'll definitely have to get some good tanking discussion in-- if you're a tank or have ever been protected by one, make sure to listen), and WoW Radio's Turpster should be there as well, so you know it'll be a great show.

Should be, as always, a great time. Hit us up on WoW Radio tomorrow afternoon at 3:30 pm EST for Episode lucky number 7 of the WoW Insider Show. See you there!

Episode 5 of the WoW Insider Show now online

Just in case you missed it on Saturday, Episode 5 of the WoW Insider show is now online and in iTunes, ready for your listening pleasure. Robin, Turpster and I took to the airwaves (and if you had problems with the quality of our show, check again, as we've come up with a brand new way to record it that sounds a lot better) to talk in depth about patch 2.2, everything coming in patch 2.3, and all the other stuff you read on WoW Insider last week. It's just like reading this blog-- but it's in audio form!

As always, if you've got feedback about the show, compliments, questions, complaints, or anything else at all, toss us a line at we'd love to hear it. We do the show every week, so if you like it this week and want to listen live, meet back up with us on Saturday at 3:30pm over at WoW Radio. Thanks for listening, enjoy the show.

Episode 3 of the WoW Insider show now available

Episode 3 of the WoW Insider Show is now available to listen over at WoW Radio and also as a podcast on iTunes (wow, those iTunes reviews are harsh, aren't they? Send us your suggestions on how to make the show better at I was on board this time around, as was our own Amanda Rivera, and WoW Radio's ever popular Turpster and Alris from the World of Theorycraft.

We chatted about all of our popular posts from last week, including whether rogues stealthing around constitutes an exploit, Matthew's post about trojans, and what exactly Blizzard's Hydra is. We hit on lots more, too, and I made everyone give their prediction for the patch 2.2 release-- "this week," "next week," or "later." I believe "this week" won among the four of us (it's what I said), but considering what the CMs are saying lately, I have to admit I'm second guessing myself-- we may not see the patch tomorrow morning after all.

And don't forget that we do this live every Saturday at 3:30pm EST over at WoW Radio. Tune in next week for yet another episode of WoW Insider in audio form-- we call it the WoW Insider Show.

I'm going to be back on the mic this week, and WoW Insider's Amanda Riviera will be joining me, as well as Turpster ("The T," as we like to call him) and Alris from WoW Radio. And of course we want you along for the ride as well: go to tomorrow to listen in live, and we'll also be sitting in the IRC channel at #wowradio on And as usual, we'll be watching for your emails: is the address for your suggestions, complaints, compliments, or questions you'd like us to answer.

First WoW Insider Show episode available for download

A big thanks to everyone that tuned into the very first episode of the WoW Insider Show-- lots of good times were had as WoW Radio's Turpster, and Dan O'Halloran and I discussed everything from whether it's OK for a guild leader to ninja a mount to whether we'll fly in Northrend before level 78 or not, all the way back to why gold farming might be OK. Actually, Dan stands alone on that last one-- you can listen to the show, right now, over on WoW Radio's homepage for it to find out exactly what happened. And it's also in iTunes-- here's the link for the iTunes Store if you've got iTunes installed.

Reminder: The WoW Insider Show premieres tomorrow!

Just in case you missed it earlier this week, set your clocks for 3:30 EST tomorrow afternoon, Saturday the 1st, because WoW Insider and WoW Radio are making history. We're premiering The WoW Insider Show, a brand new podcast that combines the audio genius of Totalbiscuit and his gang at WoW Radio with the vast knowledge (and witty asides) of all the staff here at WoW Insider. Every week, we're going to take a look at what's happened in Azeroth the past week, as well as give you a chance to share your input and ask us what we think about the World of Warcraft.

Oh, and there'll be prizes! We're kicking it off right by giving away a Murloc suit, straight from BlizzCon. To win, all you have to do is listen-- during the show, we'll give out a secret phrase and ask you to email it to us before Saturday at midnight, and then we'll chose one person who does that to get a code for a Murloc suit. It's your chance to win one of the hottest items in the game, just for listening!

So check us out over at WoW Radio tomorrow afternoon at 3:30 EST. We'll also have a downloadable mp3 of the show available next week, and the show should appear on iTunes soon (as soon as we record it, that is). But if you listen later, you can't win the Murloc suit, so if you're available, check in and listen live with us tomorrow afternoon. Be there as WoW Insider and WoW Radio make some history, and bring you the ultimate World of Warcraft podcast.
