The Cross-Realm Podcast # 3: Behind the Scenes with Erogroth

T'was in the midnight hours that two met with gold in their eyes to discuss the dark secrets of fortunes untold.  Fame and fortune alike, sword and shield set aside, we sat down, factionless, to discuss what kings have held secret to their own graves, the tale of gold making and wealth that which kings boasted across the chambers of kingdoms.  (yes I like writing...)

Tonight, I went behind the scenes, so to speak, and interviewed another gold-maker in the community, Erogroth (@erogroth).  What a great guy and down to earth person who is also on the quest to gold-cap.  We have several things in common including collecting rare mounts (Erogroth, I still don't think Poseidus exists even though you have it!), casual raiding, in a family/friends guild, and fellow gold makers.  It's amazing to see how friendly people are in this community and how everyone, in their own way, helps each other out.

In tonight's midnight episode we discuss a variety of topics including:

  • Hobbies/Interests
  • Playing Since Vanilla
  • Guilds and Raiding
  • Factions
  • Total Gold-Worth
  • Spending Gold on Mounts
  • Favorite Class/Race Combo
  • External Spreadsheets and Gold Tracking Stats
  • Gold Making Addons
  • Gotta Love Gold Beggars
  • Gold Blog Sites
  • Patch 5.2 Preparation
  • Blizzcon
  • Development Ideas
  • Closing Comments/Shout Outs

Editor Comment:  AMAZINGLY, like an hour after I publish this podcast and before crashing for the night, I said to myself I'm just going to do a quick route through Vashj'ir for Poseidus....and unbelievably...there he was!!!!!!  No one around....(of course NPCScan still scared the hell out of me but what a sweet sound that is).  Erogroth!!  You're my good luck charm bro!!!

    1. Awesome! A listener from Germany! Thanks for commenting. I'm very excited to have snagged up Poseidus finally. It's been months...I guess the moons were aligned that night and it was my turn to see the 'myth'. Be well. :)
