Community Spotlight: Navox!

navox.jpg1 You have been a co host on several different podcast for a while, how long have you been podcasting and what is your favorite thing about co hosting?

I really like to chat about things I am interested in. I’ve podcasted about tv shows/ movies and Warcraft. I’ve been playing Warcraft for a very long time and I love to have conversations with those folks who share the same interest in the game

2 What are some of the Wow community content you enjoy following? (podcast, blogs, videos, ect.)

The Starting Zone with Jason and Spencer, this is the World of Warcraft podcast if you want to know what’s going on in wow.

The Converted – I try to catch this live, but I will watch on the following Tuesday at work if I miss it.  

FrazlCast – that one takes me 2 days to listen to on the way into work and going home. lol

Lagging Balls, The Instance, Rolling Restart, Hearthcast,  Of course Realm Maintenance

I used to try to listen to all of the wow community podcasts but I found that I do not listen enough to get through all of them before new podcasts are out.

Also, Non wow podcasts…. Stuff you should know, Gonna Geek, Branded in the 80s, Major Nelson Radio.

3 Do you have any advice for someone who is getting into creating fan made content (like podcasting, art, blogging, music, etc.)?

4 Can you tell us how you found WoW and what has kept you playing?

It was mainly the evolution in the mmo environment that brought me into wow. I had been playing Ultima Online, and then when Everquest came out, I swapped to EQ, and then when Warcraft was released my friends jumped the EQ ship and got me to reluctantly come along and the funny thing was, I hated wow at the start. It wasn’t EQ and I hated the 3rd person view. Lol. I really wasn’t liking the way everquest was going so I stuck it out with wow since my friends were all there and I’ve been in wow ever since.

5 What was the first ever character you rolled & Which factors determined your faction choice in the game at the time?

  • Do you still play on that faction and character?
  • What made you change?

The first character I ever rolled was a warrior but, that was the initial wave of me trying out wow. I actually do not have my original wow account. My buddy does.

The first toon I ever truly got involved with and adventured with is my Rogue. The 2nd time I was coaxed into playing wow with my friend Mark B and they needed a tank so I transported Navox from the Icy Tundra of the permafrost over to Azeroth.

6 What has been your most memorable moment in Warcraft and why?

Its hard to pick only one. If I had to pick one though it would be Heroic Siegecrafter in siege of orgrimmar this was before Mythic mode had come out and Siegecrafter was a roadblock. My raid group spent endless nights on this and we finally got it right before they nerfed it. It was one of the best memories.

7 With a new expansion on it’s way, what are you looking forward to most I’m “Battle For Azeroth”?

The Kul Tirans, I have been looking for a larger than human race for a long time.

8 With the return to the factional divide in “Battle For Azeroth”, Horde or Alliance?

Alliance

Shout Outs:

Weekly the podcast All Things Azeroth has a “Question of the week” that I usually participate in. This week’s question was, What content creator (Blizzard related or otherwise) would you like to give a special shout out to? My answer was quite simple and I am going to use it for my shout outs this week. So, Other then the obvious answer being the crew here on this podcast. I would like to shout out TheGameCase for having me on my first podcast a while ago, for showing me that I have the potential to do such creative things. For Draven, for also inviting me as well – for the same reasons. Frazley, Lord of the Punted for teaching me that you have to power through the mistakes you make and be a better person for it. For Ben & Jon from Azeroth Roundtable for being a very good pair and having the ability to have differing opinions and still able to have a great & entertaining conversation. For Barf, not only being the lead of the greeters in Convert To Raid, but for being one of many of my biggest supporters, and giving some of the best advice. Also, Sal – the best shaman’s ever – and one of the sweetest ladies I know. Lastly to Rho for all the fantastic work he does.

Community Spotlight: Lady Emma!

ladyemma.jpg1 You have made an appearance on several different podcast’s, how did you get started with podcasting?

I met Degi who frequently guest on ATA (All Things Azeroth), also a host for one of the Dawnforge productions. He introduced me to Medros, the host of ATA, and we got along, and asked me to guest on a shows. Had an amazing time and I just wanted to keep continuing. I did become a co-host for a year. I left on good terms and I’m always happy to be a guest on Ata

I was also a co host on “Across the Whoniverse” with Medros as host and Bullet Catcher as co host. With few random guest. It was all about Doctor who. I think the main issue was scheduling. The show was never live but trying to find a day that work for everyone wasn’t easy.

I’ve also been on the darkmoon and Harold as a guest for a few shows. It’s one of the most fun shows to be on. They are very up beat and feels like a game show. You just can’t help to smile and be full of energy.

I’ve also did an episode of “World of Warcraft well read” which is a podcast about World of Warcraft novels. The host is Apsana and Skolnick. It’s where we read the book before hand and talk about it. I was on “rise of the horde”.

It was on another episode of Chaos Portal talking about Ghostbusters the movies. I felt that episode was chaotic because it had way too many people on one show for a short show. But it was still a very enjoyable experience

I was a host on another one called Anime Girls but that one didn’t last very long it was hard to come up with topics and schedule with the other host.

After all these wonderful podcasts, Frazley wanted to start his own and he remembered me being on Ata and asked me to be a guest host for his show. For a while I was a regular with Deceiverr_13 but things got overwhelming with too many guest on the show. So I’m now a filler if lack of guest and I managed to snag a spot on the last show of the month. To do a Segment called “Kilrggo Sight” its talks about the events coming up in world of Warcraft.

So long long story short (ya I guess you can skip to the end) I met host of podcast, personalities match and ask me to be a guest on there show. I enjoy being on podcast and would love to do more shows ^_^

Do you have any advice for someone who is getting into a creative things (like podcasting, art, blogging, music, etc.)?

Don’t be scared and don’t procrastinate just do it. There’s many people in the community who are willing to help and give vice. There’s a lot a podcaster who would love new guest or highlight people in community. Guesting is a great way to learn what goes on the background of podcasts. It’s always good to try and keep a schedule, don’t go too long and don’t have too many people that show. But remember to have fun and enjoy what you’re doing.

3 What are some of your favorite podcast to listen to?

I’ll be honest, I haven’t listen to a podcast in a while.  But the main ones i liked to listen to are , Darkmoon Herald, Convert to Raid, Realm maintenance, world of Warcraft less travel and Blizzard Watch. Yup I’m a world of Warcraft person through out.

4 Other then podcast and video games, one of your hobbies is Pokemon, what drew you into the series?

I grown up with nintendo system, but I was never really good at it. If you ever play games with me, you will know I can not jump.  My best friend always bug me about it. I found a lot of games really hard, and was at the point thinking they are not for me. If it wasn’t for a kid at my school, who let me play there Pokemon games, i might not of ever tried it . Pokemon was turn based game. It also help me with my hoarding of things (gotta collect them all) easy to read. So bacily I fell in love with it. I also started watching the anime. I don’t even remember telling my mum about the game. But she got me a Colour Gameboy, Pikachu edition. I don’t think I could put that game down after that. And later years after meeting my best friend who was also into pokemon, the fire of pokemon never burn out.

I also learned how to crochet. I started learning because I wanted to make something special for my nephew. To this day he still loves his baby blanket and each year I add another colour around it so it’s going to grow with him. I’ve also done the same thing with my nieces blanket who will not go to bed without that blanket. I’ve made a few other things like hat, scarves, a teddy bear, different pattern blankets and right now I am trying to make a hobo bag. It’s on hold as keep getting distracted when I need to count the stitches (so close to finishing)

I also like Doctor Who. I remember going to England and my younger cousin was trying to get me to watch an episode and I felt like it was a kid show and I’m like I can’t watch this but I just can not tear myself away from the TV. So when I came back home it was a guilty pleasure until I realize how big of a Doctor who community there is. My mum is a huge fan of Doctor Who and she has a room in her house dedicated to Doctor Who.

I’m also a great baker and love to cook. One day I will be making and sending everyone lock cookies. Well that is one of my goals.

5 What brought you into the playing Warcraft?

My high school boyfriend convinced me to play World of Warcraft. Him and his friends got beta for the game. And they spend hours on it. I was in the middle of playing final fantasy X. So I had no interest in world of warcraft at the time. But after a tragic experience.  I had issues leaving the house. I beat FFX and was bored. So my ex tried everything he could convince me to play. And I had always a reason why i could not. Playing with people in a virtual world, was scary. I was slow at typing. People would make fun of my spelling and grammar. It would be way to hard for me. He then said “ Play until you get to level 5. If you still don’t like you. You dont have to play anymore” and that was it… I was hooked. I met some amazing people. Who didn’t care about my differences and cat obsessions. It was a world I could be myself. A safe place.

I got my own copy of world of Warcraft in 2006. I do miss my original toon on my ex’s account. But over the years I’ve made great friends.

6 How often do you raid & What game mechanic do you like the most/least in WoW?

Right now March 19, 2018. I raid 2-4 times a week. I am starting to feel burnt out again. I raid with CTR guild. Humpday Heroes and  Bacon & Kegs. Both of them are wonderful teams to be on. Reason why I am on two teams is. Bacon & Kegs, are saturday and sunday but they start at 5am pst. Which I sometimes have a hard time getting on that early.. Speaial if have things I need to do that day. They Raid leader, got me an invite for Humpday Heroes, which make it easier timewise. Monday and Wednesday 6pm pst.

Like any caster, mechanic a most least like in world of warcraft, is needing to move. It can mess with spell rotation or even doing a cast stun. I also never very fond of multiple adds. I’m not good with switching targets.

Now the Mechanics I do like, are ones that I can help the raid team. For example curant raid. “ Antorus, the Burning Throne”  I enjoy Antoran High Command, because of the pods. I normally take the first pod. So before the fight starts, I have to sneak up right behind the boss, so I can click the pod when the fight starts. Now in the pod I have two buttons. Button one put a dot that stack up to 15 on the boss(or add but best keep it on the boss) and Button 2, which puts a debuff on adds. Number 2 is really important, for timing. As you want the new adds to have the debuff as soon as they spawn every time. This helps the raid team out a lot. As my dps isn’t always the best.  So a person who has better dps, can do more damage on the boss, while I help by making sure the adds are weaker for faster take down.

7 What is your favorite instance & boss fight (it can be from any expansion)?

I don’t know if I have a favourite instance. But

For boss fights I really enjoyed the twin consorts Inferno thunder. The reason why like that fight is the celestial aids. It’s where you have to do a star pattern to get their help. I was never good at doing the star pattern but it was still something fun to do.

I also enjoyed Galakras, in siege of Orgimmar because I normally get shoot the cannons and shoot him down.

I also likes controlling Razorgore the untamed in Blackwing lair, because I like to go “squish squish squish” as I’m getting rid of the eggs

As you can tell I like to do mechanics that’s not purely DPS with something fun and unique.

I like puzzles so when I was doing Licid Nightmare chain. I found it very enjoyable it will be interesting to have a raid or even a dungeon where we all have to work together instead of having top DPS you actually have to use your wits.

8 With a new expansion on it’s way, what are you looking forward to most I’m “Battle For Azeroth”?

I’m kind of going to enjoy just new story I am finding a little bit burnt out on the current content right now. It will be nice not need to farm appearance for my artefact weapon instead will be working on an artefact necklace. I have kept myself mostly in the dark about the next expansion as I kind of want it to be like when I first started playing vanilla everything new and unknown so pretty much I’m on a need to know basis with next expansion.

9 With the return to the factional divide in “Battle For Azeroth”, Horde or Alliance?

I will always be Alliance, unless im having fun with an alt ^_^

I’ve played horde but never really got far.  I don’t even have a max horde toon. I have tried… but So much to do on the alliance side that stops me.

10 Where can people find you on the Internet?

Anyone and everyone can find me on Twitter @Lady_Emma

I am on other places but that is what I mainly use ^_^
