WoW Insider Show Episode 61: Filling the achievement tank
Here's episode number 61 of the WoW Insider Show, recorded last Saturday over on our Ustream page. On the show last week, we welcomed WoW Insider's Matthew Rossi back to the virtual airwaves, along with blogger Amanda Dean and our good friend Duncor of WoW Radio. And we talked a little more about achievements and which ones we liked the most, what was going on with all the zombie action, and of course since Rossi was around, we churned up some good discussion about what's up with Warriors, other tanks, and Shamans since the big Wrath patch.

Lots of people have been asking questions about how to get the show, so after the break, I've included an exhaustive guide to how you can get our show nowadays. I apologize to everyone who's had problems so far -- obviously, with the switch from WoW Radio, we've had to deal with some tech roadblocks, but if you check after the break, you should find a way to listen to the show that fits what you want to do.

Thanks for listening -- we'll be back as always next week!

[Ustream] Listen to the unedited recording in Ustream.
[RSS] Add the WoW Insider Show to your RSS aggregator.
[MP3] Download the MP3 directly.

Or listen to Episode 61 right here:

So here's the breakdown:

We record the show every Saturday at 3:30pm Eastern over on Ustream. While we're live, you can chat with us, vote in the polls, and do all the other fun stuff we do during the show. If you've never been, definitely check it out, it's a fun time.

Directly after the show, Ustream will have an uncut archive of the show to listen to. You can see those on the page under where it says "wowinsider's video clips." Again, those will go up directly after we finish recording, so Saturday at 5pm Eastern, you can tune in there and hear the show if you like.

Our feed is finally working, but we're not yet up and running in iTunes. If you want to add the feed to iTunes manually, you can click "Advanced" in the menu, and then "Subscribe to podcast..." When the window comes up, enter "" (without the quotes), and you'll get a podcast feed in your podcasts window. The mp3 of the show will automatically be downloaded into your podcast folder every week.

And if you can't make the Ustream recording, and you don't want to mess around with feeds, you'll be able to listen to the show right here on the site when the show notes are posted. Usually, we've been posting them on Tuesday, but due to reader feedback, we'll be aiming to post them every Monday morning for you. If you want to hear the show before then, you can hit up the Ustream page -- as I said, that'll be there every Saturday. There's even an RSS icon there, so you can hook that into your reader if you like.

Everybody clear? We're still working on putting our new feed into iTunes (where you'll be able to search for it under Podcasts), but eventually it'll be in there, too, where you'll be able to leave reviews and so on.

Finally, thanks for bearing with the technical issues -- we restarted the show, essentially, and because of that we've got a few more bumps to get through (we know about the robot voices in the recording -- it's an artifact of the way we get the show from Ustream, and we're working on coming up with another way), but we'll get through them. We really appreciate everyone tuning in to listen. If you have more questions, feel free to ask them in the comments, and I'll answer as best I can.

Oh, and one more thing: I totally forgot to tell you all how to do the "Going Down" achievement on the show (without a Pally bubble --- that's cheating). Here's the deal: On the Scryer's tier in Shattrath, there are some decorations out on one of the platforms. Under the easternmost decoration, there is a canopy, way down below. If you have a flying mount, just fly right in front of the decoration tablet thing, and then unmount -- the falling distance will be enough (depending on your stamina) to fall the amount you need without dying. If you don't have a flying mount, you can try jumping, and obviously if you're not 70, you might not have enough HP to fall that far anyway.* There are lots of other ways to get the achievement, I'm sure, but that's the one that worked for me.

Never mind -- fall damage, according to our sage commenters, is a percentage of health, so the amount of HP you have isn't a problem.
