Date:9nd Feb 2016
If you are a serious gamer looking for a hardcore wow podcast, and you’ve come to us, you may not be as smart as you think.
If you want a few laughs and a random chance of learning something you didn’t know…..
Once upon a time there were three crazy gamers.
They played World of Warcraft.
These are their stories.
In the BOE cave this time around we have
as always the Wych and the lovely Tempeste,
and joining us Berat, and Kai.
If you’re new to Bind On Equip…..Welcome!
5star review from troll man-
“Incredibly informative & insightful. Hosts are raiders who know their stuff & can explain & educate lesser players. A must listen if you want to improve your own skill set.” REALLY?
Lets get a slice of Real Life

- at place i hit roller door
- innocently parked to one side waiting for truck

- dude enquires, i offer to move, no need
- much swearing
- took Temp away for birthday
- next day took for brunch to place i had admired from truck
- courtyard, crates, inspired us for vege garden and pool fencing.
Work- Stuff happened
Home- Here as well!

From the lovely Sarah
Hi all you sexy people,
So as we move into 2016, I took as chance to reflect upon last year and the past and then to look into 2016 as to what I want to do.
I firstly looked back at my Warcraft life, which has consisted of:
- Moving servers due to a Female fixating on me and trying to take it out of game
- Deleting most of my characters at 80
- Deleting boosted characters that are at 90 (6) (main reason is I could not grasp how to play these at that level)
- Having only Hunter, Druid and Mage at 100
- Started Protection Paladin – Alliance side
My real life in 2015
Christmas 2015 away on holiday and Man comes up to us and tells us that in 15 minutes he could cure us of lesbianism (he was American of course). I looked him up and down and laughed and said that his very small pencil would last 2 minutes whilst my wife’s fingers last for hours and go away little boy.
Looking forward to 2016
This is my Warcraft bucket list
- Get my Paladin to 100 (at present 75) and all professions to max
- Get Belf Rogue to 100 (at present 30) and all professions to max
- Get Worgan Warlock 10 100 (at present 9) and all professions to max
I very soon realised that unless you take a character from 0 to max, you cannot play the character well. Rogue is quite difficult to play but I will persevere and see if I can get her higher. Warlock on the other hand is quite a dream to play and is great fun. My Paladin is quite scary to be honest, using Zygor with dungeon guide for Tanking – I was really scared at the beginning but am really loving it.
Sorry for the long email.
Love to you all
lets hit the news thats caught our attention:
Observations, Opinion & Discussion topics:
The Burning Question:
What was your biggest noob moment in Wow?
Wemb:Being pushed through the door of ubrs at level 42 by a bunch of giggling girls who thought it was hilarious to see every mob in the instance run to pulverise me in about half a second.
Temp: SO many to choose from …
epic sprint out of the window in BRD over the ledge and into the lava
Ass pull on my rogue in strat
My recent use of portals to ancient dalaran … /giggle
@AramonNoir-Trying to 2 man Blackfathom Deeps at level 15. Didn’t quite read the “needs group” comment.
@grimrok-Not one, not two, but the MILLIONS of times I got lost in undercity!
@bytorsnowdog-so many to choose from… Hitting alt F4 because someone in chat said to, typing AFK in a BG to “get a buff”…
@bytorsnowdog-just a thought, does ‘accidentally’ getting on your Rivendare’s Deathcharger while in a group with @TheWych count?
The Burning Question Next Week:
If you weren’t allowed to play your main from tomorrow what would you change to?
