WOW, that is cheap. way cheaper than I can get it for.
I recently purchased a Genius USB Gaming headset, which is foldable.  Thought this would be good, as I had the previous non usb one.  which I thought was really good.  But no, the speakers are awesome, but the Mic, buggers out, and causes very LOUD static occasionally.  No new drivers available either.  Usually casuing my mates to scream in agony and remove their headsets.  Don't worrie, I have the old non-usb one still.  =)

Ive got a Plantronics headset that I use.... but for some reaosn ive got to crank up the mic all the time.... dont know if its the mic at fault or my onboard sound :(
I should look at a USB set once I get some funds cleared.

Anyway getting back on track....

My advice is : Lots of health and mana potions :)

Yeap, we got a decent warrior, 2 hunters, and 2 little tiny weene healers.
So we should be ok.  Yes, mana potions for healers, and healing potions for tank/dps
We check out our strengths, and need to work on Aggro pulls and Aggro management.

All in all, I would say we will be fine. Healers stay behind & we wont pull unless there is a Pat (Patrolling Mob)

We will be fine, two of us managed it the other night. All I can say is make sure you have lots of room for loot!!!

Well, I got the standard 4 slot bag from early quest, and my back pack.  So if anyone wants to donate/make bags for everyone who needs them, that would be awesome!
I have 3 bag slots available still, and a 4 slot, so if you can make 6+ slot bags, gimmie 4 please =)

I've really enjoyed taking you guys through instances. I would love it if everyone had a headset and downloaded ventrilo and logged into Kinsten's server. It is much better than the in game sound. My poor deaf old ears have a hard time hearing the in game chat. The Stockades are very fast and simple so when you guys get up to lvl 20 and grab the tests then we'll be set. I'd advise using Wowhead to get the info on the quests you need to be prepared for the trip. Always nice to have all the quests done and ready to go before we go.

Yup agree, Ventrillo is the way to do.  Will post a new link with details of vent account & settings to help with setting it up.  =)

Also, everyones, please download Omen2 and add to the games Addons folder.
A new version has just come out, (which I did not have) so we will all need to grab it.  Very helpful for learning when & when not to attack =)

Yay! good to see you here Sherman!

Hey Brad, why don't you do a special for Godzone Geeks WoW guild on that Logitech ClearChat Pro USB? It is a great headset and I am enjoying using it.

It's usb, so you can leave your existing speaker plugs plugged in. Follow the instruction on the headset manual by setting it (USB) as default. So whenever you plug it in, it is set to it and you can use it. When done, just unplug and the setting will fallback to the next on the device. Handy!
