Cataclysm Beta Live Stream: Choose my worgen druid 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. EST.

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 for the video replay.

Hello and welcome to the live version of Choose My Adventure (beta edition). Monday, Monday. So good to Robinella the druid worgen. Today we continue her adventures.

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

Guild reminders

  • <Blogling> If you joined us for the Hallow's End event and would like to move over to our non-event guilds, please ask for an invite from someone in <It came from the Blog> if you are under level 55 or <The Insiders> if you are 55+.
  • <Blog Lurker> We are absorbing this guild back into <It came from the Blog>. Please ask in our global guild chat if someone is available to invite you back there.
  • <It came from the Blog> If you are 55 or over, please move over to <The Insiders>. You'll want to be there to take advantage of the guild leveling and rewards when those are implemented.
  • I think I mentioned it in the last stream, but I did cheat on you to play a human huntress. I'm taking her off the polls now. Northshire is definitely worth playing through as there are many changes, but Goldshire hasn't changed much at all.
  • The starting pet for human hunters is the wolf.
  • Robinemia finished the PvZ series of quests in Hillsbrad Foothills and now has the Singing Sunflower pet. it is now my favorite pet ever and I will be getting her on all of my characters once Cataclysm launches.
  • Last Wednesday's stream was epic. Epic. Do not watch if you don't want major spoilers about the goblin starting zone. Epic spoilers. Epic.
  • I really do love the worgen starting zones and playing them is warming me up for playing one in live, but the goblin starting zone is more to my tastes and more epic. Epic.
  • I'm still undecided as to what goblin class I want to play. I'm not quite sold yet on shaman. I like the hunter, but I'll already have one as a Forsaken. I already have a bajillion mages. Do I go shadow priestess since I'll be making Peenk the gnome a discipline priestess? What do you think?

In the poll below, please choose which Alliance character you want me to play next Monday. If you choose Peenk, we'll move her over to Westfall to do the quests there, once she's high enough level.

There is still time to vote on Roblinator's shaman spec, if you haven't already. Happily, elemental is winning, but I would love to hear the pitches from those choosing enhancement and restoration as to why I would like those.

If you haven't voted for Wednesday's Horde character, you can do so below.
