Zephirah’s Adventure: Podcast!

Community Spotlight: Xortz

xortz1.) What got you into the playing Warcraft?

I played Warcraft 2 a lot, and loved the whole orc vs. human set up. I got into WoW though an ex girlfriend back in Burning Crusade.  Missed most of Wrath of the Lich King and came back just before Cataclysm dropped. Been here ever since, mainly doing the Ironman Challenge these days.

2.) How often do you play games (not just Warcraft – but in general!)?

I play daily, video games is my main form of entertainment these days.  MMO’s RPG’s, RTS, Sim games, I love all of them.

3.) You play a Goblin, some players hate the starting zone & find them & their alliance counterparts the gnome hard to play due to how small they are. How have you adjusted to the size differences?

The size difference doesn’t bother me. I barely notice it. The goblin starting zone is too fun and silly for me.  Best starting zone in the game.

4.)How often do you raid (including LFR & any previous expansion’s raid’s / all available raids) & What game mechanic do you like the most/least in WoW?

I haven’t raided since the end of Cataclysm. Just got sick of the constant demand on my time it required and how it seemed to turn good people toxic if things screwed up. Walked away from it and have had no desire to go back.

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

Can’t say I ever had one. But it’s been so long since I’ve done any I’m sure there was one, but I can’t recall it.

6.) You stream WoW, what is the best & worst thing about streaming?

Best thing, having people just come and hang out and have fun. Worst thing is when Twitch or my internet is having an issue and drops frames to the point where I can’t stream. FeelsBadMan. Seems I hit a character limit part, incoming! 🙂

7.) You have been a guest on FrazleCast, Wyrmcast, & WoW Challenges, what is your favorite thing about podcasting?

Well when I was hosting the Wyrmcast ( A podcast that interviewed different RP guilds on the Wyrmest Accord server) it was meeting other players, getting their story of how they got into RP and video games. And what the story of their characters and guilds were. Being a fairly regular guest on  both Frazlcast and WoW Challenges is mainly just getting to hang out with good people taking about things we love in WoW and gaming. I feel really lucky to be a part of two great communities.

8.) What are some of your favorite podcast? (This can include the ones you have been a guest on!)

WoW Challenges and Frazlcast obviously.  Lagging Balls is always a fun one, Realm Maintenance, Behind the Avatar, Pwncast and a newer one called For The Roleplay are one’s I listen to regularly.

9.) With a new expansion on its way, what are you looking forward to the most in “Battle For Azeroth”?

Well the zone level scaling is going to change how and where players level. Plus the new sub races seem very cool; however, I was hoping for murloc’s. I would play the hell out of a murloc.
