Hello ladies and gentlemen and welcome back to the official WoW Stratics Podcast!
The project is a joint effort by everyone here at the WoW Stratics writing team, and challenges topics regularly with special guests, interviews, news, community integration and much, much more!
Our Hosts include:
Syiler, the Managing Editor of WoW Stratics,
Metro; a 25 player heroic raider and raid leader of the guild <ONE> at Firetree Horde US and
Meoni, a fellow 25 man raider and resident timekeeper here on the show!
Samkoss could not be present ;(


This week's guest and focus of the podcast is Eltoshan, a 25 man Heroic raider also in ONE. As you may have already surmised, Eltoshan was unfortunately born with only one hand, having his left arm truncated just past the elbow. The goal of the podcast is to bring Elto's plight, along with others in even worse situations, to the mainstream media and help players realize that its possible to play the game at a high level no matter what your situation!

As a secondary focus, it will be our pleasure to help newer players realize that having a proper UI with addons and keybinds is FAR more important to success than even having hands! Proof is here with Elto, who is able to play the game even more successfully than other people in our guild with half the options.
Hopefully the story we learn from here is that those players new to the game and saying they aren't skilled enough to play it well can now realize that the tools are out there, you just need to explore them!

The Podcast is available on the site as a stream and on our official Itunes channel, available free to download for your listening pleasure, no matter where you are!
So what are you waiting for? Go listen in today!

If you have any comments or opinions on the shows content please do head over to our forums for an in-depth discussion!

The only person that I can think of that is "disabled" that plays at a high level is Swifty but that's only because he has lost his pinky finger. ahah :L :)

Pie is delicious. As for the thread topic, I have friends with CP who are definitely quite good gamers.
