Episode 45: Cheap-Ass Fast Leveling

8 Dec

Being cheap ain’t always stupid

Epic Diapers #45 – Cheap-Ass-Fast Leveling

Blizzard has a pretty sexy sale going on right now, and if you’ve ever thought about getting alts up to 80 or 85 quickly and cheaply, or just fooling around with dual-boxing, now’s the time to give it a try. The Battle Chest is only $4.99. This gives you every expansion through Cataclysm, and you get 30 days of free game time, which is a $15 value in itself!

After laying down a measly 5 bucks, send your second account a recruit a friend invitation through the in-game menu.  I’d suggest dual boxing with the same class for simplicity, but that’s up to you. Next, group up your new level ones and start questing up to level 80 with your triple experience, and as an FYI, heirloom experience boosts stack as well. This is easily accomplished in less than 20 hours of gameplay, and if you do that within your free month of gametime, try as many pairs as possible before your 30 days expire. Then you can transfer your level 80 over to your main account if you don’t want to keep 2 accounts acitve, or you can let the account go dormant and wait for a transfer service sale, as it is a steep $25 normally. But before you do that, be sure you grant levels from your new account to low-level toons on your old account.

Now, while it’s true that the new expansion will give you one free boost to 90, it’s unclear if you’ll be able to purchase additional boosts, or if Blizzard will limit boosted level 90 transfers for players who buy multiple copies of the expansion. Until then, have fun dual boxing alts. Of course, it is the holiday season, so you could always buy this for your significant other so that now the both of you can fight over who gets to put the kids to bed on raid night!

My dorky audio segment was included in “The Instance!”

15 May

I took about an hour to produce a little audio segment (with wonderful voice acting, btw…ha!) about prioritizing one’s limited WoW gaming time; particularly parents and those with very busy schedules. It was light hearted and fun, and apparently Scott Johnson et al thought it barely worthy to include in the most recent (ep. 229) episode of “The Instance.”

You can listen to episode 229 of “The Instance” here: http://theinstance.net/2011/05/229-the-instance-the-epic-stash/. My segment (called “Epic Diapers”) is included at the end of the show with several other regular segments.

I suppose I need to keep this segment as a regular…send me any ideas, tips, or otherwise about balancing your gaming and parenting life.

Stay epic my friends,
