Cataclysm live beta stream plus new direction for Choose My Adventure


Choose the adventures of WoW Insider's Robin Torres as she levels multiple alts in the Cataclysm beta, live every Monday and Wednesday at 1 p.m. EDT.

Note: The stream is of the Cataclysm beta. It and the chat below are full of spoilers. You have been warned.

Update: The stream is now over. Please click on the image above to watch the video replay.

Hello and welcome to the live version of Choose My Adventure (beta edition). The winner of the polls was Roblinator, the goblin shaman, so I will be starting her adventures today. Join me after the break while I narrate, read quests and take requests from the chat room. The show will run for at least an hour and be viewable on video, if you weren't able to watch it live.

In addition to today's show, there are big changes coming to Choose My Adventure. So please join us after the break for the announcement and the polls for next week.

Live stream chat


Everyone's schedule has been extremely hectic and will probably continue to be so until some time after Cataclysm hits. Until then, I will be the only adventurer for you to boss around. When things have settled down a bit, we'll start up again with more of the staff. I know, I know. I'm no Selfloathius or Foxlight -- but you've been slumming it with me for a while now and it hasn't been all bad, right?

In the meantime, I am going to be doing the live Choose My Adventure show twice a week, Mondays and Wednesdays at 1 p.m. EDT. No longer will you have to choose between Horde or Alliance. Monday will be an Alliance character and Wednesday will be Horde. We'll have polls each show for you to choose next week's character and little mini-recaps for those who can't make the live stream and/or don't want to watch the video replay.


You have chosen for Peenk to be a gnome shadow priestess, which seems positively perfect. In the poll below, please choose which Alliance character you want me to play on Monday. As usual, if female worgen work by Monday, I'll play that instead.

Also, choose the Horde character you wish me to play on next Wednesday's stream. Robinemia has another quest chain to pick up in Silverpine, which promises to be as much fun as the others, so if that interests you, choose her.
