Welcome to The AIE Podcast episode #166. Broadcasting from the AIE Podcast Emergency Battle Bridge in a stormy Southern Alabama, this is Acuzod. (“Greetings. This… is AcuZod”) Joining me from the Pet Podcast Studio on the other side of the continent is Alludra. (“Hey AIE, I think you’re awesome”). Unfortunately Ghomus couldn’t make it tonight, he’s locked in a raid with the Real Life boss. We just hope he gets loot.

This week we are joined by two special guests who are here to talk to us about AIE in SWTOR.

First lets welcome Maxx.

And we also have Sema…

Ok, we’ll be digging into SWTOR shortly, but first, let’s cover this week’s news…


The Blizzcon Guild Hall Kickstarter has met its goal! That’s right everyone, you have helped us fund the amazing guild hall that we all know and love, congratulations!! But there’s still time left on the clock and it seems we are going to have some stretch goals set up soon to aspire to! Keep your eyes on the page everyone!

And speaking of guild fundraisers the AIE Pass the Hat drive has hit 50%! We have reached half our goal for funding the things that help make AIE work, like the forums, the websites, the various services we have, all that fun stuff!! If you would like to chip in and help out, head on over to the fundraiser site and give it a look!

Win a steam copy of the secret world! Rattozatto on the forums is holding a contest where you, yes you! Can win a copy of the secret world! You are going to need a facebook(!) account for this one folks.

Hotfixes hotfixes hotfixes! World of warcraft just received a balancing patch on october 2nd! They have re-tuned some of the raids, changed some of the classes, and even messed with pet battles! For all the latest info check out the patch notes.

Did you ever want your very own starfleet email address? Well now is your chance! Head on over to and get one! It’s just $15 a year, which is a lot cheaper than four years at the academy!

This week we’re giving a shoutout to Eade, Wolfshade, Adobe, Pitango, and Hathorr, hosts of the My Epic Heals podcast. The Podcast for All Things Healing in the World of Warcraft. It’s a great podcast if you’re a healer or interested in what healers are thinking, though it may not be considered family friendly, so listen to it away from lowbie ears. You can catch it at,
