Cataclysm Beta Live Stream: Choose my female worgen 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. You can watch the video replay by clicking the image above.

Hello and welcome to the live version of Choose My Adventure (beta edition). Because it's Monday, we're playing Alliance. And the winner of the poll is worgen, which is good because Robinella is now a female both in game and out. Woot!

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. Also after the break are some notes and polls.

Live stream chat


  • I cheated on you again.
  • Since it didn't look like orc mage would ever get voted in, I played Robinorc on my own time. Here is the evidence.
  • The changes are very small in the Valley of Trials, unfortunately.
  • Mages are uber from level 1, which is good ... but ... well, uber orc mage in a zone we've all seen doing quests we've all done and never really being in danger ... it doesn't make for a very dramatic, interesting leveling experience.
  • So, yay orc mages! But boo if you've ever leveled through the Valley of Trials before.
  • You voted for Robinella to be feral. This is nice because the worgen kitty form is pretty, but I also really like worgen form. I was kinda hoping for balance.
  • If I should stream a super-exciting human, you want her to be a hunter. I may cheat on you again to play her on my own, unscheduled time.
  • Or I may not. I want to play Peenk and Robinemia!
  • Roblinator, the goblin shamanator, is no longer stuck. In the latest patch, you can talk to Gallywix to trigger the cutscene again and get sent to Lost Isles. So she is lying on a makeshift raft, ready to to begin her adventures on Wednesday. (Unless she somehow loses in the next two days.)

In the poll below, please choose which Alliance character you want me to play next Monday.

If you haven't voted for Wednesday's Horde character, please do so now.
