And we’re back with Episode 12! We actually recorded this the night before Oestrus and I left for BlizzCon, but due to me being on the road for the two weeks after BlizzCon, I couldn’t get this up until now.
Back in Episode 6, we spoke about guild and raid leading from a more progression-oriented point of view. This time, we wanted a different perspective. If we believe the statistics that Blizzard keeps throwing at us, then less progressive raiding is the majority, yet we rarely hear about it.
We figured we would remedy that.
We sought out Thespius, who for a few years has been one of the leading voices of “more casual” raid leading, notably through his work at World of Matticus (and as his guildie, I knew he was good XD) and talk about the meaning of “casual raiding”, recruiting, keeping raiders interested, dealing with those who use “casual” as an excuse to be unreliable, handling busy real life schedules, and more!
Looking to get a hold of Thespius?

This episode of the Double O Podcast brings us (and you) four tanks eager to talk about the ins and outs, the ups and downs, and the lefts and rights of today’s WoW tanking. We talk about the evolution of tanking throughout WoW’s lifetime, the changes to threat, the changes to Death Knight mitigation, and the overall experience of being a tank at this point in time. Our tanks also answer your questions about how to survive, in more ways than one, as a tank in World of Warcraft.

I was seriously tempted to rename the episode “How Horny Are You?,” based on events that occurred during yesterday’s recording.
In this episode, we use an article from Kotaku, “I’m An Anonymous Woman Gamer,” as a starting point to chat about our experiences and opinions surrounding our own condition of being female gamers.
Of course, men are more than welcome to listen as well, and we even offer some suggestions to singletons looking to find a WoW playing soulmate.
This week’s “Thank You” goes out to Fimlys, who saved the day (or night) when the Technology Gods turned against me during the editing process. If you’re listening to a podcast with intro and outro music and a distinct lack of awkward silences, it’s all thanks to him!
On the next episode, as mentioned on the show, we’ll be talking about gaming schedules and gaming addictions with the lovely Lady Erinia from Moments in the Life of a Death Knight as our special guest host.
